2theface

Combo of 16 Hits

Pros: Turn 1
Any Ninja Wins
Discard and Injure Your Opponent’s Ninja

Cons: Requires Dropping 3 Jutsu
Not Permanent

Hmm…
I can’t decide if I like this card or not. Potentially this card would allow any ninja to win an Outstanding Victory, even a Ninja Academy Student, thus taking out any head ninja it faces and injuring any back ninja on that ninja’s team. The look on your opponent’s face would almost be worth it when Konohamaru takes out Zabuza and injures two others. My biggest problem with this is that you’d have to drop 5 cards in one turn and make your opponent block a ninja. The only way this is going happen is if you’re running [No. 1 Rookie] Sasuke or you get your opponent to block the Tenten that doesn’t have to pay to use Kunai, or both for that matter. There are cards that make this mission work, just not enough of them to make it worth it.

Constructed: 2.5/5
Limited: 2/5
Art: 2/5 (Meh…I wish I liked Ino more)

To every child within the sound of my voice....when you're in college, study for Finals, or you'll regret it. Sort of like studying the Naruto COTD every day! With school now over, I can get back to reviewin the cards that are sure to make your deck the best, or...not. Heh...Moving on though, today's card is:

Combo of 16 Hits!-Uncommon Fire Mission; Costs: 1-1
Effect: If any Ninja in your Team(s) uses 3 or more Jutsu cards during this turn, that Ninja's Team wins an Outstanding Victory in the Showdown regardless of the result of the Battle.

This card has some potential uses, but in a Taijutsu Deck I'm thinking. Look at it logically. The cost of the card makes sense, you can use it on Turn 1, by paying a Fire card, and the ability lets you take out the Ninja Team Battling yours. The problem with this card is...Chakra payment! Not that it's a bad thing mind you, but most good Jutsu card cost 2 Chakras (doesn't matter on combinatio) and above. Taijutsu cards, like Leaf Whirlwind and Leaf Hurricane cost the 1 Chakra, and pump up your character. Got that pesky Ninja team with Zabuza or the Third? Uses Combo of 16 Hits! and place them all in injured status. Personally I plan on running 1 or 2 in my deck to test it out, and I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes (when it comes out that is)

Constructed: 4/5 (Needs the right touch...)
Limited: 3/5 (Uses vary, but don't count it out))
 

N. Jolly

Combo of 16 hits

The Good

-Possible Outstanding Victory

The Bad

-Hand draining

-Hard to pull off

It's the N. again, here with another R&R card, Combo of 16 hits. Now this is a card that I wish would be more viable in the tournament scene, but will probably just be used in fun decks. When one Ninja uses 3 or more Jutsu cards in a turn, that ninja wins an Outstanding Victory, no matter what happens in the showdown. Sound good? When not when you think of how much chakra you'll be dropping for this, not to mention using three cards from your hand. While it doesn't matter if they're negated, it's still hard to get three jutsu you can use in one turn. The best way to do this is in a Kiba Mill deck, using low cost mill cards with Dropping a Blackboard Eraser to mills them, seeing as you don't have to increase your attack or drop your opponents. Overall, this is a fun card, but not a good one.

Constructed 1.5/5

Limited 1/5
