Dark Paladin
Shien's Advisor, a Level 4, Earth type, Warrior monster, with 1200 attack and 400 defense. While these stats are rather unremarkable on their own, the effect makes up for it. When this card is Normal Summoned, which is a bit odd, as the Samurai like to swarm, if you control a face-up Six Samurai monster, you get to declare a Monster type, and all Monsters of said type can't attack OR be Special Summoned. I like it, a lot. Said effect is in play while this card is face-up on the Field. This may not seem all that possible, but the Samurai have enough damn support that anything is possible, and that it could become incredibly annoying, really fast. Certainly worth trying out.

Shien's Advisor
This Shien guy seems to get a lot of help, but he certainly doesn't need his Advisor. If you've ever played YuGiOh, you know all about Six Samurai. The Samurais FTK/OTK like crazy. This is a control card. Control cards aren't very useful in OTK decks, even if they can be sided to lock down type-based decks, such as Blackwings, Dragunities, Karakuri, other Samurais, and Plants. But Samurais aren't about defense. They're about six minute matches.
Art: Someone needs a thinking beard.
FunFun Fact: People with thinking beards include Santa, Osama and Dumbledore.

Shiens Advisor
More Legendary Six Samurai support. Thankfully, Shiens Advisor isn't "broken" or even particularly good. The advisor is a 4 star earth warrior - shocking right - with fairly abysmal stats - 1200 atk and 400 def. Its effect allows you to to declare one monster type and while said card is on the field face up monsters of said type can't declare an attack or be special summoned. Uh...neat I guess....but you need to control another six sam when you normal summon him for said effect.

What...why? The question really boils down to why am I going to tech this in my six sams. Will it speed up my pumping out shien/barkion and setting up for control/beats? No. So why? Well...it is a fairly decent side deck card but I just don't see it being put to much use. If you want to mess around by all means but meta players should just stick to basics.
