based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
It's Explosion time!!!!
I almost fell in love with this card, this card
would've been a must for a lightning deck!
However there is but one problem...it does not have
clone status =(, which would have made him an
excellent canadite for NA-RU-TO UZAMAKI BARRAGE!
Alas his effect can still be quite deadly, having a
5/2 by turn 1 or 2(dependning on turn of naruto you
Also the other problem...the turn cost, i wish it
were 0 just in case you cannot growth it =/ sorry
for the short reviews this week, Honors english is
kickin my butt this week constructed: 3/5
limited: 4/5(dude if you keep pulling secret rares....)
Naruto Uzumaki [Fast
Pros: Potential Jiraiya Strength
Cons: Bad Healthy Stats (even for Naruto)
What happens when you overeat on Thanksgiving, you
get twice as fat, just like today’s card of the day.
If you’re feeling lucky this card can become one of
the strongest in the game and take out many teams
single handed. How could you turn down a 7/4 beat
stick? Easily, frankly I’d rather run [Imposter!] or
[Self-Sacrificing Attack] in place of this. At least
with Imposter you can chump block for infinity and
Self-Sacrificing can knock one of your opponent’s
ninja down a notch. This is just one of those, I’m
awesome if you top deck into 3 of me cards, never
thought I’d say that before. Then again, if you’re
feeling lucky give it a try, if you get a
Self-Sacrificing Attack Naruto off and grow into
this one you have a 5/2 beater turn 2.
Limited: 4/5 (Only if you draft 3 of them)
Naruto Uzumaki (Fast
-A turn two 5/2 ninja
-Plenty of Naruto support
- -1 support?!
Naruto! I need more Naruto Support!! One of the most
recognizable cards in the game gets even more
support, now in growth form! With a card like this,
you can have a team of 5 with one ninja by turn 2!
That's if you play him as a growth ninja. If you
don't, he's the worst Naruto ever, and should never
see play. This card is all about luck, and unless
you have a lot of cards that modify your deck(Inner
Sakura), it's generally going to pop up at bad
points. I personally like the idea, but they needed
to give this one decent stats to make it good.
Naruto Uzumaki (Lightning)
Leaf | Genin | Male | Growth
When this ninja is put in play by the effect of
place an additional growth coin on top.
- HUGE stat boost through Growth.
- Horrible starting stats.
- Takes up a one-drop slot.
- Better Naruto's out there.
Well, I'd say that the cons obviously outweigh the
pros here, so it's going to be difficult to even
attempt an objective review at this point. I will
say, however, that for myself the jury is still out
on the Growth effect. It's definitely not worth it
for this one, though.
If his normal support was at least 0 or 1, I'd
consider it - but imagine having to rely on this in
an emergency, and you're nothing short of totally
screwed. Of course, growing this from say, a
Nine-Tailed Chakra Naruto might actually be worth it
(that's 2-1, 5/2 on turn one) if both were
guarenteed draws, but that's where you run into the
second and third problems.
First off, he is a one-drop, a category you've most
likely already filled with Sakura, Temari, or Dosu.
Secondly, he takes up one of your three "Naruto
Uzumaki" slots, and that's one of my main problems
with Growth overall. You've got three slots for any
unique card in your deck, and Growth can really mess
with your draw chances if you plan to use different
copies of the same ninja. Unless you've got a really
reliable combo (which I can guarantee you don't at
this point), it's really not worth the effort. If
your Growth-status ninja is better than the
original, just run it. But I wouldn't rely on having
reliable Growth decks, at least not for now.
Constructed: 2.5/5 -> Nine-Tailed and SR Naruto are
still my favorites.
Limited: 2.5/5 -> Better hope you draft more than
Art: 4/5 -> It'd be cooler with Rasengan.
