Return of the Ninja
Return of the Duelist is also the return of the Ninjas! There are 2 new Ninja cards – one monster, and one new Ninjitsu Art. Blue Dragon Ninja is a Level 5 Sea Serpent-Type Ninja you can Summon with Ninjitsu Art of Super-Transformation, and it can freeze your opponent’s monsters in place too. Ninjitsu Art of Shadow Sealing lets your Ninjas take out any opposing monster and seal it away for good! Are you able to master these new Ninja techniques? Read on to find out!
Blue Dragon Ninja is the all-new Ninja monster. It’s a Sea Serpent, so it fits right into your Deck if you’re already using Ninjitsu Art of Super-Transformation to Summon huge monsters. Blue Dragon Ninja is Level 5, so if you’ve got a Level 4 Ninja on the field (like Ninja Grandmaster Hanzo) then you’re able to use any non-Xyz Monster your opponent controls with your Ninja and Super-Transformation to Summon this card! Also, unlike White Dragon Ninja, you can Special Summon this card in any way, meaning you can later revive it with Call of the Haunted or Monster Reborn. It’s also a WATER monster, so if you’re using a lot of WATER monsters and Sea Serpents in your Deck, you might want to try A Legendary Ocean. It will lower the Level of Blue Dragon Ninja to 4 so you can Summon it without Tribute and boost its ATK!
On top of being really easy to Summon, Blue Dragon Ninja has an effect that can easily save you from being blown out on your opponent’s turn. By discarding a Ninja monster and a Ninjitsu Art card, you can completely stop an opponent’s monster in its tracks, by negating its effects and preventing it from attacking. While this ability’s cost can be high, you only really need to use it once to shatter your opponent’s comeback and put yourself back in the driver’s seat. Save it for your opponent’s last-ditch attempt to get back into the game with Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning or Tour Guide from the Underworld or whatever the key monster of their Deck is for maximum effect, then seal away that monster with the new Ninjitsu Art of Shadow Sealing to clear your path to victory!
Ninjitsu Art of Shadow Sealing is the second new card for Ninja Duelists, and it gives your Ninjas the power to erase all traces of any monster. By Tributing one of your Ninjas, you can banish any opponent’s monster and seal off its Monster Card Zone, making it unusable. As long as you keep your Shadow Sealing Art on the field, that monster is never coming back – this is pretty easy to achieve when combined with White Dragon Ninja!
Return of the Duelist marks the return of the Ninjas – they have gained a powerful ally, and a new tool to aid them in their battles. These 2 new cards will allow you to prepare your Ninja Deck for any challenges that may face it. Are you ready to master the Arts of the Ninja?
