Lightning Blade (aka
Chidori or 1000 Birds)
Pros: Only Two Cost
Cons: Kakashi Only
I’ll be brief considering it’s a little obvious why
this card is amazing. Giving a ninja +7 is huge.
Giving a ninja +7 for just two chakra, Priceless,
except for the two chakra. Who cares if you can only
use it with Kakashi? Kakashi goes in every fire deck
there is anyway, even if he is just the Vanilla
version and this is just icing on the cake of a
really great ninja, especially [Early Settlement].
In short, Kakashi good, Kakashi with a lightning
glove on that can cut a bolt of lightning, that
might be a little better.
Limited: 4.5/5 (Even if I didn’t have a Kakashi I’d
still take it, it’s just that good)
Art: 5/5 (Finally art that does its card justice)
Before Gencon, this card was looked at as a simple
first set super rare. But now, we see this card for
what is really is; a team wrecking beast! With just
one fire and one colorless chakra, you have a boost
of seven, which makes even a vanilla Kakashi a 12.
With him in a team, you can easily win an
overwhelming victory for less than a Trigram. The
only problem is the fact that it only boost Kakashi,
which hurts it's playability alot. But with a
dedicated deck running three Kakashi's, getting him
onto the board and in position to use a huge attack
isn't impossible. And for the reward of an almost
guarenteed overwhelming victory, it's almost hard
not to run this card.
Limited 3/5 (If you pull both a L. Blade and Kakashi,
Well, it's usually said
that the best is always saved for last, and sadly,
this week ends in a bit of a sour note...
Lightning Blade-Super Rare Fire Jutsu; Costs: Fire-1
Requirements: "Kakashi Hatake"
Effect: The target gets +7/+0 during this turn.
The super popular Lightning Blade (Chidori, for fans
of Naruto who enjoy the pure Japanese version), was
killer when the Path to Hokage came out, no doubt.
The ability to pump up your Kakashi by 7 points,
making him a potential 13 Team Power and above, gave
you the ability to destroy an opposing Ninja Team.
But lately, with newer cards being released, it
seems as this version of the Chidori is slowly
fading away into the background. For the cost of 2
Chakras, one being Fire, and the other of any
element, you can increase Kakashi's Combat by 7
points. There are a few ways to negate this card, or
even worse, have it discarded, with the new Byakugan
cards. However, if you do manage to pull off the
effect, it could spell disaster for your opponent,
providing they don't, or can't stop it.
Constructed: 2/5 (The new Lightning Blade fits
Limited: 2.5/5 (Slightly more usable)
Ello poppets! Sorry i was out of commision
yesterday, I was busy and ended up going to a Naruto
tournament. It was pretty sad =( I swept
everyone...which was weird cause i had to mulligen
down to four on my first match. MEH easy come easy
go, on with the review!
Ehh It's lightning blade....ooook, its like the only
secret rare besides crystal ice mirrors that i have
never seen play. First off, it requires a specific
ninja, Kakashi. Everyone who runs a fire deck runs
three so this shouldn't be to much of a problem.
Then if you can use it it is a +7, which in most
cases is a free overwhelming. I have to say though
that the other lightning blade would own this
one...having the chance to discard the user of this
lightning blade...yep give me the discard effect any
Decent card if you own it, I don't. Have fun with
it, show it off, whatever ticles your fancy.
