Karakuri Ninja MDL 339 "Sazank"
That almost gave me a headache...Level 3, Earth
attribute, 1200 attack and defense, a Machine, which
is appropriate given the picture. Anyway, the
card has to attack when able, and when selected as
an attack target, change back to defense position...
When this card is flipped up, select one face-up
monster on the Field and send it to the Graveyard.
During the turn this card is flipped up, it can
attack directly. So, it has to attack, and can
attack directly if flipped face up...
Which destroys a face up monster also while flipped
face up. This guy is really good for a turn,
or for a flip heavy Deck, remember when those use to
be popular? I mean, he's perfect use for a
turn almost, but likely to die after that.
|Today's card is Karakuri Ninja. Um... The Sazank
one. He's got solid stats and a sneaky flip effect
that's like Man-Eater Bug, but doesn't destroy, so
it gets around Stardust. Then, it can attack
directly, but it probably won't, because you'll
probably want it to destroy a monster. He also has
the standard defensive ability to shield you from
suicides and battle damage.
You may be thinking, "Woah! This guy's the new Ryko!"
but you'd be wrong. Ryko can also hit spells and
traps, and most importantly, Ryko can also mill. And
that's a pretty big thing. Ryko would see a lot less
use if he didn't help to dump cards into the grave.
Art: He's ugly.
Fun Fact: Dark Dawn left me dangling off a cliff.
Tomorrow: WATT is this supposed to be?
Hey Pojo, David the Nameless here with the
Karakuri Ninja. This card is very essential to any
Karakuri deck. Its effect says that when this card
is flipped, it sends one monster on the field to the
graveyard. First of all, it gets rid of stardust
dragon. Next, it is able to be searched out with
Karakuri merchant and all the Karakuri support. But
also, its next effect not being so good, is the turn
is flipped face up, it can attack directly. This
effect is not so good, but I guess it can come in
handy, sometimes when you can’t kill their monster
by battle, you can just attack over it to your
opponent’s life points. The one downside to this
card is its star level. Being a level 3 monster, you
can’t go into the Karakuri shogun.
Today we will be taking a look at Karakuri Ninja
Mdl 339 “Sazank”. Karakuri Ninja Mdl 339 “Sazank” is
a Level three Earth Machine Monster with twelve
hundred Attack and Defense. Its effect reads; This
card must attack if able. When this face-up Attack
Position card is selected as an attack target,
change it to Defense Position. When this card is
flipped face-up, select 1 face-up monster on the
field, and send it to the Graveyard. During the turn
this card is flipped face-up, it can attack your
The low Defense of this card will keep this from
seeing much play, if it had a good Defense like
Snowman Eater or Legendary Jujitsu Master then this
would have some potential but it doesn’t. Since it
doesn’t have the bulk to withstand most Monster’s
Attack it will be destroyed before it can use it’s
effect. The only way I could see this working is if
you have two Burden Of The Mighty’s in play or
something to that extent.
In the Traditional Format the Battle Phase isn’t
very important so this arch type as a whole won’t
see much play.
There are cards that do this card’s job better.
