Imaginative and a little bit ditzy, this pretty brunette is the proud inventor of weapons as compellingly original as the camcorder gunner, the plasma hair-dryer and the microwave rocket launcher...

Level 2: 4/1
Level 3: 5/3
Level 4: 7/3
Level 5: 8/5; Ability: -5 pillz, min. 6
Bonus: +2 Damage

Naginata is a virtual 8/7 with 5-pill reduction capabilities.
Some are saying she's weak against SOA, or that attack-manipulation clans will eat her alive.

My response is: "Shooooooooooooot, son." I kind of can't stand that people trash-talk cards because Montana and Uppers merely exist as clans. Yes, attack manipulation can cut a card's attack down considerably, but no Montana card is capable of doing 7 or 9 damage WHILE reducing your opponent to 7 or 6 pillz in the first few rounds. Naginata fills a long-vacant role in La Junta, being the only 8-power 5-star card, and carrying with her a great ability, to boot. SOA won't save your opponent from significant damage, and he/she will be all but forced to pill against her regardless of their SOA's or attack bonuses, making her an excellent bluff in a majority of scenarios, especially when paired with Hugo or Ambre in T2 or Survivor modes.

She's not the greatest 5-star in the game. It's true; but let's take Kolos, for example. many consider him to be the be-all-end-all of easy wins (*rolls eyes*), but his vulnerabilities abound, people. Against SOA, he's a mere nuisance. Damage reduction? Mere nuisance. SOB+Attack manipulation (i.e. Vickie or Petra)? Nuisance. I could go on. Every card has weaknesses, and to whittle a card down based on the existence of some clans' bonuses is like saying ALL ability-based cards are useless because some people play Roots or GHEIST. Lol... By that logic, GraksmxxT and Uranus are rubbish!!

It's silly, really.

Naginata is good. I don't know that I can justify the extra stars necessary for including her in my T1 deck (or even T2), but she'll find some very good homes. I'll probably use her in casual, S&G matches. Bet on that! :)

A very very scary card if your facing it.
8/7 with bonus and a scary ability to boot.
A great bluffer card to use as well as a great card to shave your opponents pills down.
With that massive damage can 2 Hko with practically anyone in the clan
Only problem is that she is 5 stars making her hard for ELO decks.
Overall a superb card to have 9/10

Naginata - The Crazy Pill (Ch)eater!

Maybe people would think that Naginata looks worse after Brianna was issued, because of her same base stats but lower star level.

The only different of them would be their names... looks... and their abilities! Yes its the only difference, and also a big different!!

Naginata has an unique ability in the game: The highest number of Pillz deduction and the highest minimun of Pillz deduction!

People said the cons of Naginata would be the high minimum of Pillz deduction. But for the experienced players, that minimum number would be the trick, especially it works well for those who think that "it is a cons". Let see what those players think when they see their opponent plays Naginata:

lv 15 Player) O~ My pillz must be deducted if lose! I just pillz hard to avoid this!
But sorry, opponent only pillz 1 and you lost tons of pillz.

lv 30 Player) O~ My pillz must be deducted at the end, and the minimum of pillz deduction would be 6.I just pillz to that number would be fine.
But sorry, opponent has been predicted your pillz number and play right to win.

lv 45+ Player) O~ Opponent must know I will pillz in particular number because of the minimum of pillz deduction. I just pillz a little bit harder to ensure win.
But sorry, opponent pillz higher than the minimum of pillz deduction and harder then you ! Because they know that La Junta has many characters with great attack / pillz manipulation that can control in low pillz fight: Gatline, Arnie, Ray, and the soul - Emeth!!

lv 6X Player with "GREAT" character review) Pros: 8 power always good~ Cons: SOA hurts~ SOB cut damage~ DR hurt~
But sorry, 8/7 if SOA, pillz deduction if SOB, pillz deduction + damage supported by other La Junta if DR, 8/5 even all stop! Also please stop the rubbish review can't help other players, what 8 power is always good that all we can see on the card by eyes, and all characters have the same cons!!!

You see all the players would be in pressure when they see Naginata. Moreover, it's hard to stop her if she match up with Ambre.

Naginata still has her value in this game. She is a must-play character if you try La Junta!

--5 pills, minimum 6 GREAT PILL MANIPULATION
-If you notice her weapons they are regular items you'd find around the house added to a big gun
-Very good can get to 7damage in affiliation with her power level which is 8 is a good healthy card
-Exxcellent bluff card
-Overall 10/10

Pronounciation: Nah-ji-nah-tah
Gender: Female
Clan: La Junta
Price: 5200 Clintz

Naginata is scary to see in any battle. She is 8/7 with Pills reduction! First of all, 8/7 is very good. Then we have -5 opponent pill minimum 6. The minimum is a bit high, but it`s pills reduction anyways! Her artwork is okay, would have been better without glasses.


Card: 10/10 I mean, 8/7 is a really good card deserving a 8/10, but then niginata sticks pills reduction in their face too!
Artwork: 8/10 Level 3 artwork is hot!!!

- Excellent 8 power the highest u can get
- Decent 7 damage with bonus and 9 with fury which lets u kill with many of the juntas ( not u thourmund =.= )
- ability is -5 opp pills min 6... umm that means if she wins she cuts 5 pills from ur opponents .. thats heck alot

- she has a good 8 power which joins her to the league of Ray, Wardog
- 7 damage is nice and 5 is also not to bad for junta
- now her main solidness comes through her ability i,e : -5 opp pills min 6 , now -5 is really amazing and good minimum of 6 , now she allows a lot of mind games ,whenever some one faces this card he/she would just think whether she will be bluffing with just 1 pill or its gonna be 6 pills from her if 1 pill for her should i 1 pill my card ... no she would do 7 damage instead if i loose ... but i really suggest just give her 3 pills and see what happens beacuse of her 8 power opp would need a heck lot off pills to match her yes all attack modifying clans also would have to use atleast 4-5 pills to beat her and what if you just give her 7 pills,at that time that would make only 1 pill difference between you and opponent and if the almighty emeth is there in your hands then god save the opponent.

well not really any cons... umm then also 5 damage isnt that nice for a five star .. if would have just got 1 more damage i think she would be 10X better.

well, i would give her a 10/10 .. she has no flaws and obvoiusly she is better than Ray i would love -5 pills more than situational+8 attack so she is the 3rd best 5 star junta after General Cr and emeth and as i use her i would tell she helps more than emeth.

( my first ever card review rate green if u like it :P )

Naginata- You are the queen of improvising that causes the opponent to improvise.
5 star. 8/7 ability: -5 opp. pillz, min 6

Stable Power: Naginata joins Junta and gives them some stable power that they need and that is well deserved for a 5 star.8 solid power is as solid as it gets.(2 points)
Stable Damage: 5 damage without a bonus isn’t really bad for a 5 star and still allows an opportunity to KO with other cards. But let’s face it, she’ll be hitting with the full 7 most the time.(2 points)
Ability: This ability, though not an attack manipulation or power manipulation, is INCREDIBLE. Though it doesn’t help you get the damage through, her solid power and the motivation to hit with this ability will.(2 points)
Versatility: 1 question. Am I going to hit you or not? (2 point)
Dependency: With 8 solid power and 7 damage, who really NEEDS an ability. She does not really rely on her ability, but it is nice to have. (1 point)
Art: The art for this card is nice. Nothing like seeing a cute asian woman with a microwave rocket launcher.(.5 points)
Overall usefulness with the Clan: Naginata bring variety to La Junta and takes them a bit away from the typical “I kill you now!” mentality. So, in my opinion, she is a blessing. (.5 points)

My Review: 10/10
Though she may not have the attack manipulation most Junta players want, her 8 power and amazing ability makes her hella versatile and capable of holding her own. There really isn't a flaw to be seen.

Bet money that the reason her price is finally going up to something decent is because of me playing it unpredictably, pwning ppl hard in DMs and survivor (Can't really get too far with the overpilling strategy, but it'll get you to 10 wins and then you can change to something more suited for survivor 10 and up. I don't have the clintz to buy the decks to do it xD) and other ppl adopting the same strategy (along with cards that regain them pillz so it doesn't go to waste).

Can't do it with Shann cause she doesn't force the opp to play any pillz. Oh well.

If you've been pwned hard and it was like 80% naginata's fault, because the opp played 1 more pill than you expected, and you were like "WHAT?! NO WAY! COME ON!!!!", resulting in a headbutt, kick or punch to the computer and/or threw the computer out the window, and you're still mad, rate up xD.

And keep the price raising so we can make more ppl mad :thumbsup:.:*:
