1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
You can only use the (1) effect of "Sakura the Ninja of Scattering Petals" each once per turn. (1) During either player's turn, if a monster you control is targeted by a card effect: You can negate the activation of that effect, and if you do, destroy it. (2) If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle: You can target 1 face-up card on the field; destroy it.
(Thread title is derived from parts of summoning chants Chaos Sonic and Nai made last March in this thread. So yeah, thanks you two.)
Thread's my 27,000th post, so as customary, I make a special card for the occasion.
Yes, this card is based on the character whose name I've had since July 28th, 2010, but it's designed for competitive usage while combining aspects from Sakura's powers and stuff.
First effect is supposed to protect your monsters from targeting removal that exists nowadays, a reference to her personality and stuff.
So yeah, anti-Castel / 101 / Majespecter backrow [ironic that I'm saying this] and whatever else that gets used.
(Unfortunately, no protection from sweep removal though. Exciton is banned though, so not listing it here [though yeah, Sakura can't block him either])
Hard OPT because it's still negation.
Second effect is destruction-based, and somewhat derived from U.A. Dreadnought Dunker and that earlier Kurama card I made a few weeks ago.
I'd like to give this card the ability to pop face-downs as well (similar to the former), but might be a bit much, especially coupled with the negation effect.
Being able to pop face-up monsters + Scales should be enough.
Third effect is floating, in the event that Sakura does get killed, and again linked to personality.
I wanted to make her revive during the End Phase, but then it'd be a regenerating 2.7k negator on the opponent's turn that would block removal attempts every turn, even with a hard lock. (I themed this off of the Speedroid Synchros to an extent).
2700 ATK because this is a 27K post.
If I wanted to make Sakura's level equivalent to my own, then it'd be 7, and that pool is pretty crowded though.
Sakura could probably find space in there though, although stats are on the higher end, especially for generic. So yeah, it's an 8 for that reason.
Image is done by me; render is from Yin.
(Yes, this is the same render that my current avatar uses)
In any case, CnC is appreciated and will be repped.
