PRIO Preview: The Bujin Conclusion Part 2

May 6th, 2014

In a Deck like Bujin that relies so heavily on single monster, you can never have too many ways to keep your key monster on the field. There are generally two ways to take a monster off the field – by battle, or by card effect. Bujin Decks have card effects well covered between Bujingi Turtle and Bujingi Hare, and Hare pulls double duty for battle alongside Bujingi Crane. But unlike Crane, using Bujingi Hare during battle isn’t going to take out your opponent’s monster. Fortunately, the new World Premiere card, Bujingi Sinyou, will!


Like Bujingi Hare, Bujingi Sinyou banishes itself from your Graveyard to use its effect. You banish Sinyou during the Damage Step while one of your Beast-Warrior Bujins is battling another monster. During this battle, your Bujin will get an ATK increase equal to your opponent’s monster’s ATK, though your opponent will take half the battle damage they normally would from that battle.

Does that sound familiar? It should, because it’s nearly identical to one of the most powerful LIGHT monsters ever created: Honest! While Honest activates in the hand, Bujingi Sinyou essentially gives you a second, third, and fourth Honest right out of your Graveyard, stamped with the Bujin name so it works together with the rest of your cards. You can easily put Sinyou in the Graveyard with Bujin Yamato and Bujintei Susanowo, then use Sinyou’s effect to power them up!

Bujingi Sinyou actually has a slight edge over Bujingi Crane in some regards. While Crane can often come down as a surprise from your hand, it’s frequently searched out via Bujin Yamato or Bujingi Peacock. A revealed Crane in your hand isn’t too much different from a Sinyou in the Graveyard. While rare, there are cases when Crane simply doesn’t cut it. If you’re ever staring down a Cyber Twin Dragon off Power Bond, you’ll be glad to have Bujingi Sinyou! Sinyou lets you win every battle, no matter how tipped the scales are.

Now, I’ve given these scenarios where Bujingi Sinyou is better than Bujingi Crane, but don’t take that the wrong way. Sinyou isn’t meant to replace Crane, but to work alongside it! Imagine a Bujin Deck with three Crane, three Sinyou, and Honest. Bujin Duelists are reading that and getting tingles; non-Bujin Duelists are fighting over copies of Forbidden Scripture as we speak.

If you’re the kind of Duelist who likes using even more copies of Honest, Bujingi Sinyou is just the card for your Bujin Deck. You can find it, and even more new Bujins, in Primal Origin!
