A valuable card in many ways, Karin is a high-value claw attacker with a semi-useful status effect- and in green, of all things, despite her high attack stat. A common card to see especially in colosseum (where her high damage allows her to do a lot of damage while spreading a painful status effect), Karin has been a mainstay of many decks' Wood element pools for quite some time.
On top of her attack stat, good claw attacks are fairly rare (with the best two, Leviathan and Nana, having only been implemented recently as of this writing) and unlike Nana, Karin's only fusion is with herself and other cards that are, gently put, awful. This gives her a a very low error rate due to super fusion unlike some desirable attackers. The only thing that might make her less than desirable is that her actual sub skill is not very useful at all. If you do not intend to play Karin, you probably won't want her.
The only concern when playing Karin is that her artwork upon reaching GOD evolution status is considered one of the most hideous in the game.
Having one of the highest attack stats in the game makes Karin an especially proficient 3-attack user, and while Petrify isn't the most debilitating status in PVP, it does cause a hinderance for a fair number of people (and it sets up for a killer combo with Mary if you have or know anybody with her). Otherwise, you don't have to worry about the secondary effect in any capacity and can treat her as a big numbers card.
The one blemish to an otherwise quite capable card, her subskill requires you to be under one specific status effect, and then provides a relatively subpar boost compared to options such as, say, an S-rank skill boost card. While her icon will match with other claw cards, it's very likely that you'd be better off using a Skill Boost Lv. 3 on whoever with a claw mark- the additional power from the skill will likely make up for the lesser stats.
On the other hand, if you encounter an event or monster that petrifies constantly, her skill can be used if you have her around. Keep it in mind for highly specific events, but otherwise this is nothing to go after.
Karin is considered the current top in the running amongst both the Japanese and English communities for worst-looking art at GOD evolution level, beating out previous hideous winners such as Lancelot.
