Puppet Master
The Legion

Today’s card is Six Samurai Shinai. Shinai has the ability to special summon himself from your hand if you control a face up Six Samurai Mizuho. On top of that, if this card is used as a tribute -- any kind of tribute, including tribute summoning and other card abilities -- you may select one Six Samurai monster in your graveyard and add it to your hand. This effect is mandatory, which is great since you won’t miss the timing if you use this card as a tribute for something. The Shinai and Mizuho loops are very fun and very fast plays for the Samurai deck. These cards didn’t see too much play at the YCS in Dallas, aside from Billy Brake who used these two to loop infinite counters onto his Gateways of the six, but maybe with the limiting of Gateway, this card and his red counterpart might see some more competitive play.  Or maybe they wont see any play at all, seeing as how two of the counter stacking cards are gone from the samurai deck, and also, with only one Gateway, you won’t be searching your deck quite as often for them. Although in just casual play, these two cards are great for fun little loops and samurai surprises.

Traditional 1.5/5
Advanced 3/5

General
Zorpa
Legendary Six Samurai Shinai

This is another of the Legendary Six Samurai  and is paired up with Legendary Six Samurai Mizuho. He is a level 3 WATER Warrior with 1500 ATK and 1500 DEF. This is actually very good as it is searchable both by Shien's Smoke Signal and Reinforcements. WATER is not the best Attribute to have, but I guess they overdid the EARTH Samurai a little bit.

His effect is a bit situational, but when he is Tributed, you can add a Six Samurai monster in your graveyard to your hand. You can also Special Summon Shinai when you control a face-up Mizuho, meaning that you can seriously swarm with Mizuho, Kageki and Grandmaster, so you can explode into a completely unexpected win.

Paired with Mizuho, this card can be exceptional good, but I honestly think that Mizuho is completely better in almost every single way. The only thing is that you need Shinai for Mizuho to be at her best. He is not mandatory for a Samurai deck, but can be added for a bit of flavor for a player who wants to be a bit different.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3.5/5
