After years of biding their time, Ninjas are ready to take on the world of Dueling with the release of Order of Chaos! Order of Chaos has ten new Ninja monsters, so for the first time ever you can build a Deck dedicated to these shadowy assassins. Ninja monsters are masters of two things: setting Traps to eliminate their foes and Xyz Summoning. Here are some tips to help you do both.
Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 “Sazank”
Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 “Sazank” probably doesn’t seem like much of a Ninja upon first glance, but once you Set it on the field, this tiny machine will quickly prove its worth. When it flips face-up, you get to pick any face-up monster and send it to its untimely and unexpected demise! Sazank is a Level 3 monster, so after it offs a pesky monster, Summon Air Armor Ninja for an Xyz Summon. Even though Air Armor Ninja is a Level 4 monster, it can drop itself down to Level 3 so you can Xyz Summon a new mechanical monstrosity like Wind-Up Zenmaines!
Ninja Grandmaster Hanzo
This is the card you want to see at the start of every Duel. Normal Summon him, and you can get a Ninjitsu Art card from your Deck. Summon him any other way, and you can grab a Ninja out of your Deck. You can’t lose… unless you don’t draw him. So use Upstart Golden Ninja to take luck out of the equation! Upstart Golden Ninja can Summon Hanzo straight from the Deck, so you can seek out your next Ninja. Moreover, since both are Level 4 Warriors, you can Xyz Summon Blade Armor Ninja. Its effect lets it, or any other Ninja you choose, attack twice per turn!
Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armor Ninja
This card grants all of your Ninjas, including itself, total invulnerability to destruction. But it’s a Rank 5 Xyz Monster and Earth Armor Ninja is the only Level 5 Ninja. Not to worry, because Flame Armor Ninja can increase the Level of any Ninja by 1, including itself! Special Summon Earth Armor Ninja with its effect, then Normal Summon Flame Armor Ninja and bump it to Level 5. You can then Xyz Summon Number 12, and any future Ninjas you play will be safe from harm along with it!
