Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters: Foot Ninja and Fugitoid
We’ve looked at Baxter Stockman and Mousers and up next are the villains the Foot Ninja and Fugitoud.
Shredder’s Army (cost 2) – Swarm
Ninja Syndicate (cost 3) – Ally, Foot Ninja get +1A and +1D for each other Sidekick in the field zone
Robotic Ninja Warriors (cost 3) – Ally, while Foot Ninja is active, your other Sidekick dice get +1A when blocking (doesn’t give itself this).
Thoughts: With a die that’s 0 cost with 1A 1D at level 1, 0 cost with 2A and 1D at level 2, and 1 cost with 2A and 2D at level 3, the Foot Ninja is a character and die I’m intrigued by. With swam decks popular I can see Ninja Syndicate and Shredder’s Army finding their way into a lot of decks out there. The cost 2 swam is a bit more than a Kobold, but the stats do get better with level 2 adding a bit and the Ninja Syndicate could work well in a Bard team. I can see both of these cards easily making their way into regular play. The cost 3 Robotic Ninja Warriors isn’t one I’d necessarily like as I think you’ll potentially get more out of Ninja Syndicate with its “for each Sidekick” wording. 3 other Sidekick and you’re looking at a die with 4A 4D minimum at 0 cost or 5A 5D for a cost of 1.
Professor Honeycutt (cost 3) – Nothing special
Neutrino Scientist (cost 4) – While Fugitoid is active, other Villain and Turtle character dice can’t attack unless their owner pays 1 to ignore this effect until end of turn
High Tech Body (cost 4) – While Fugitoid is active other Villain and Turtle character dice get -1A
Thoughts: Fugitoid is the character I think will find moderate play in constructed. While the character could be interesting if you see a lot of villains played in your area, or if you’re just playing from the TMNT set, this isn’t one I can see as a must have card that’s one you build a deck around or must have. At it’s lowest level the die will cost 1 to field with 3A and 1D, level 2 is 1 cost with 4A and 2D, and level 3 is 1 cost with 5A 3D. The low cost of 3 is an interesting character to use with those stats and gets out a decent attack relatively quickly, but as a whole I think there’s better options that are cheaper and more flexible.
