Kunai

Pros: +2/+0
Top Deck FTW

Cons: Specific Lightning Cost
No +Support

Ok, this might be one of the really cool cards coming out in the new set. With a Tenten that doesn’t need to pay the chakra cost of Kunai and Earth having Leaf Village Forces this makes this card an easy +1 in card advantage in an Earth/Lightning Genin Rush deck. Now it’s not exactly game breaking but you’re still getting a new card every turn and your Tenten is staying big. Personally I’d run this Kunai over the other in a Lightening deck but the original is still stable in any other deck type you splash it in. This card can also make Tenten a winner by herself with Combo of 16 Hits, for free.

Constructed: 4/5 (Kunai’s good in whatever form you have it in)
Limited: 4/5 (Awesome in a Lightening build)
Art: 4.5/5

Kunai

The Good
-+2 Combat Boost
-One Chakra
-Deck Replenishment

The Bad
-Specific Cost
-No support boost
-Loss of Chakra

Here's a spin on a card that's already done right, Kunai. Now with our original Kunai, we get a +2/+2 for one colorless, and it's just great. This one only gives a combat boost, and has a specific lightning cost, making it impossible to splash. But this Kunai can boomerang back to the deck, making...some sense? It works with Ten Ten support cards, but no one runs those, and it's just a bad idea. There's really not a lot to say about this card, other than don't run it, run the POTH Kunai instead.

Constructed 1/5
Limited 1/5

Today's card, kiddies, is a remake of an ol' goodie, from the upcoming Revenge and Rebirth set, coming out next year:

Kunai-Uncommon Lightning Jutsu; Costs: Lightning
Target: User
Effect: The target gets +2/+0 during this turn. After applying this effect, you can move this card to the top of its original owner's Deck instead of your Chakra area.

The original Kunai (J-001) was a 1 cost Lightning Jutsu, and was able to fit into any deck since the cost for it was any 1 Chakra, and that's all there was to it. However, this new version of Kunai seems to have me in a bit of a bind...I'm liking the fact that it's now specifically cost, making it a good fit for Lightning decks all around, but the fact that it can bounce back to the top of your Deck is the effect that gives me the willies, so to speak. Don't get me wrong, I know that Tenten (N-096) from the Curse of Sand allows you to play any "Kunai" card for free, and with this new one, it could open up some new posibilites. It also serves as a good Battle Reward buffer. If you'd normally be unsure of what card you'd lose to an opponent's attack, now you can make a calculated risk, see if it's beneficial to thin out your deck, in a bad way though... Overall, I can't wait for this card to come out, and abuse it in my Tai-Deck, but like the rest of Naruto's faithful fans, we've all gotta wait for next year...

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 3.5/5 (Slightly better, but hold off on making any drastic deck changes, till you see what other cards come out)

Have a great weekend everyone, and don't forget your X-mas shoppin!
