BS56-X03.png
This month we are on a Green card (definitely not because I do not want to talk about a third White card), The KamiumiBushin Onogoro. The name “Onogoro” comes from Onogoro Island in Japan, which is said to be created by Izanagi and Izanami. Released just around two weeks ago, Onogoro is a Green Cost 5 Spirit with the families Pastwalker and Plant Spirit. It also has two effects: first one being able to summon itself from hand in one cost when the opponent reduces the owner’s life to three or less; the second one is an on summon effect, being able to heavy exhaust two opposing Spirits and Ultimates and give two cores from the Void to another “Yomi”/”Kamiumi”-named Spirit on the same Field.

When it was first revealed, and I believe even right now, there are still players who think that Onogoro is not worthy of an X-Rare place, since it can do little by itself. As a veteran player, I disagree with that statement. It is true that by itself it can do little, but when looking at where it is used, the cards it relates to, one can see why Onogoro is sufficient to be as it is right now. Being an X-Rare does not mean it has to be a standalone card.

To get into this, we have to analyse the deck which Onogoro is used, which is the Yomi/Kamiumi deck, or more commonly known as IzaIza, named after the main Grandwalker Nexus of the deck, The Grandwalkers Izanagi & Izanami. The deck is a spam-type deck, focusing on filling the board with Spirits and breaking through the opposing defence through sheer attacks (with a bit of life burn). Being partly Purple, it also gains more draw power and removal through depletion, two things which Green lacks. However, that is all about the offensive side. Defence wise, the deck really does not have many choices, mainly it is through repeatedly summoning Spirits from Trash to produce more blockers. Although there are other defence options such as The YomiSoldier YomotsuIkusa and Kamiumi's Fierce Pursuit, a lot of them either require quite some costs, or they need the presence of IzaIza to function. Of course, players can always put in the generic White defence, like Diamond Wall and Burst Wall, or if they can afford, Bloodshed Blade; but then there is the issue that cores may be stretched too far across the board that the players need to deplete their Spirits to use the cards, or the cards have taken another slot in the Trash which could have been a Spirit to summon for another attack. There are also other counters which go around these few defences specifically because of how common they are in the environment.

Onogoro provides another kind of defence. It being a Spirit means it can avoid Magic negation. It also only needs two cores to be used, and it can immediately give those two cores back if there is another “Yomi”/“Kamiumi”-named Spirit. In the current meta, there are also very few “Armor”-named effects which block Green effects, let alone effects which avoid exhaustion, so being a Green card also has its benefits. Also, being Cost 5 means it is in the range of IzaIza’s Grand Skill, and when summoned by The KamiumiGreatRouseBeast Ooyashima it fulfills the condition for the life burn.

Spam decks cannot have too many defence options. Its offence can already be overwhelming for the opponent to handle, so if it also had strong defence, there would be no place for the opponent to breathe, which can create a really bad meta. So, as a simple card, Onogoro is sufficient as defence for the IzaIza deck, especially since it can also be an offensive option. There are many issues which may cause a deck to have its weakness, and in IzaIza’s case, while it is true that it needs a bit more defence, its main problem is still relying too much on IzaIza. So if the player cannot draw IzaIza, the deck can easily brick. This is also the main problem why IzaIza is seen less in the meta. Obviously, Onogoro alone cannot solve that problem, but hopefully this review is enough to explain why it is still important for the deck.
