Playdoh Dude Kakashi Hatake [Confidence in SUbordinates]:

Wednsday! We have the deemed worst Kakashi to review today, but he is vastly underrated. Say you don't get a quik win in Genin Rush, who else to pull late then this guy! He has pretty nice stats, a6/3 on a Five drop, and then he's fire, which is basically good all-around. Better yet, he's a Jonin to use yesterdays card, and has Sharingan Eye!

Constructed: 2/5. Play Copy or Settlement over him.

Genin Rush: 4/5. Only late-game trick this deck has, and he's useful.

Limited: 3/5. Genins are pretty common(especially Kiba, which I currently have 16 copies of) in Limited, so if you pull this, nice job!

Art: 4/5. Go Lightning Blade!

Overall:3/5

Kakashi Hatake (Confidence in Subordinates)

This isn't as staple as the other cards this week, or the other Kakashi out there. However he is still a good thing to have. Turn 5 means he's got a handcost (One) which means he isn't splashable, he's only for Fire and Fire hybrid decks. He's got all the standard charms of Kakashi (Leaf|Jonin|Male|Sharingan Eye, Combat Type of Genjutsu), along with the standard Turn 5 Kakashi stats 6/3 - 3/2.

So why him over, say Copy Ninja (Gain Combat equal to whatever combat your opponent's team is gaining), Sharingan Eye (Use any Jutsu for free if they have it in their discard), or Early Settlement (Gain a battle reward if you win a battle, not just by attacking the village)? Well, he does allow for slightly stronger team of lower rank ninjas. While it isn't as important now, it will come up later on. He gives +0/+1 to any and all Leaf and Genin ninjas. Now, how does this help?

With 12 Leaf|Genin ninjas out there, Most will be often reprinted with greater and greater effects, the bonus support is good early on. Later game you'll get out Sandaime (Third), Yondaime (Fourth) and Kurenai. Whi will make every Genin look wimpy without this. He also allows you to split up your teams a bit more. However this isn't really a standard Fire/Water card, he's more for Fire/Earth. Earth has more decent Genin Utility ninjas that have support and nice effects. He also does decently in Fire/Wind.

Hatake Kakashi rating: 2.5/5 (Not as good as Early Settlement, but not a Super Rare either)
Constructed (Fire/Wind, Fire/Earth): 3.5/5
Limited: 4/5
Art: 5/5 (Raikiri rocks out loud)

Kakashi Hatake [Confidence in Subordinates]

Pro:
-good stats

Con:
-high drop

Today we review yet another fire card. A trend is very apparent this week.

General-
I think this kakashi may be some what underrated. Reason for this is that other copies of kakashi shadows over this one, making him not as good as he seems. There’s what he does. If you put a genin with the leaf village symbol with this kakashi, then those genin gets an extra 0/+1. some good examples of ninjas that go well with him are Shikamaru [lazy bum] and Sakura [Determination] when those 3 ninjas are putted together, you can have a team power of 14 (6+3+4:sakura’s effect) that’s equal to any team available now, even if it is for one turn. Even more deadly is this combo: Kakashi + Hokage + Promo Sakura: [textbook]. If they are put in to a team together, and sakura uses kunai, the total team power would be 15 (6+4+1+1:kakashi’s effec)+2:kuna)+1:sakura’s effect), that’s totally unheard of. There are many other combos with this card, even if this involves little genins who can’t hold their own.

Compare to other copies of Kakashi (i.e. copy ninja, early settlement and 4 drop) this is not as good. If looks like it needs a deck dedicated to using copy ninja for it to be most effective. It sounds interesting already.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Limited: 3.0/5
