It isn't even that great of a card, lol. Its ability, Stike Back, is to go second in the first round of play, but going second is not much of an advantage. Going first, you end up having control of which of the last 2 cards play each other, so it's almost better to be first unless playing a deck with a one-hit KO card. I also have to say that once MY Ashigaru was maxxed, I was EXTREMELY dissappointed by the artwork. He looked far more badass in the first 3 lvls than in the last two. Still, having an 8/6 card can't be all bad, right?
