  • Searches out and special summons a Ninja monster from your deck.
  • Great defense.
  • Can reduce your chance of bricking with Ninjitsu Traps in your hand, by using Traps as cost to summon level 4 or lower Ninja monster.


  • Costs you a trap card in your hand to use effect. Especially since trap cards are essential in a Ninja deck

  • Ninjitsu cards you use as cost for this monster’s effect can later be used to fuel the effect of Red Dragon Ninja.

Why UR in a large box.

Why did I get my second one of this useless crap instead of the 3rd Andal I dream of.

Will this card be a good addition in a post-nerf ninja deck?

Nobody should run this card in an optimal pvp ninja deck. Its ass.
Looks like a fat captain falcon. FALCON...(heavy breathing... Panting...) PUNCH!

Maybe for ritual summoning level 8 like black luster soldier but still yea kinda useless
This card is only good if your opponent has major backrow. You can discard a trap to special summon that one level 4 card that can bounce trap/spell back to hand.
One of the very few decent URs in this box...unfortunately it's just making a pre-existing archetype even more annoying.

My main deck is a ninja deck. I honestly don't see how this card could add something to the deck. You need your traps to defend your (weak) ninjas, you don't want to discard your Mirror wall, Floodgate trap hole or Ninjitsu Art of Transformation.
