Ending this week of Fire cards review is one of the first promo cards to hit Naruto CCG, so let's get into it.

General-
This Sasuke's ability let's you to use Fire Jutsu with less specific Chakara. So you can play Fire Ball Jutsu with just 1 fire and 2 other chakara, Kage Bushi with 3 non-specific chakara, or the card we just reviewed yesterday with a non fire element. The point is, you can consider more options even if you don't got enough fire chakara.

However, numerous, shall I say 'better', fire jutsu cards either require [Sharingan] character status (I.E. "Negate and Discard" Sharingan) or [Jonin] Status (I.E. 8 Trigram), to play, and this Sasuke has neither, making the potentially great ability less effective. Should the same ability belongs to a copy of Kakashi, that'll make a more game breaking card.

Lastly, another reason that this card doesn't see play is the fact it is a Sasuke; there are other copies of Sasuke that can easily over power [Battle Sense] or perform better control strategies with the same physical statistics. Since you can't play more the 3 copies of the same 'ninja', there are less incentives to play [Battle Sense].

Constructed: 1.5 / 5
Limited: 1 / 5 (Since I can't give a 0, I'll give it the lowest score possible because you can't possibly pull this from a pack.)
 
Beastly Bruin Sasuke Uchiha [Battle Sense]


A turn 0, 3 Combat powerhouse that can ease the pain of multiple Fire Chakra jutsus? Purdy good.

A Sasuke without Sharingan Eye? No thanks.

Sorry, but that effect just isn't necessary enough for me to let him take up one of my 3 Sasuke slots. I honestly can't think of a Sasuke I'd take out of my Fire build for this card...even with the high Combat. (Due to his effect, he's just an offensive bullet in any other deck) His effect could be useful in a Fire Hybrid deck, being that you may not have any Fire Chakra when you really need to drop that Fire-based jutsu. This card would be SO much more effective if he had Sharingan Eye, as you wouldn't need a Fire card in your Chakra pile to play it.

Constructed Fire: 2/5
Constructed Tech: 1/5 (Run Analysis)
Limited: Promo/5
Art: 1/5
 

Apprentice of Anubis

All right, after my small disappearance due to Technical Errors (AKA, My internet is CRAP!!), I have returned just in time for the final card of the week, Sasuke Uchiha [Battle Sense]

First off, he has the standard Sasuke Stats, being a 3/0 healthy and a 0/0 Injured, which I’ve ALWAYS hated, and unlike most Sasukes, he doesn’t have Sharingan Eye built in. Though, his ability definitely isn’t something to pass up too quickly.

Whenever Sasuke becomes the user of a Fire Type Jutsu, he can change one of the [Fire]’s into a [1] instead, much like Anko can turn [Water] Chakra into [Lightning] Chakra. Still, even with the ability he has, it’s hard to recommend him over [Power of the Curse Mark] or [Analysis of Competence].

Is he a good card? To an extent, yes.
Is he the BEST? HIGHLY doubt it.

Constructed (Fire Style Deck): 3.5/5
Constructed (Fire Splash): 2/5

Limited: Whoops, can’t pull a Promo in a booster draft. J

Art: 1.5/5 (What’s with this odd fascination with Sasuke in this game? And why is he always trying to be the bad boy? He fits being just a whiny emo SO much better. ~Ensue Hatemail~)


Rakath

Sasuke Uchiha (Battle Sense)

This is the least splashable Sasuke Uchiha in the game. He's asking to be used in a purely Fire deck. He's Turn 0 Hand 0, not a surprise. 3/0 - 0/0 is pretty standard play for Sasuke these days too. He's got Leaf|Genin|Male which is boring and unhelpful and a Flame Combat type lets him do one thing, not get hurt by the Monday card of this week. Anyway, on to his effect.

Replace a Fire in a Jutsu cost with a One. What does this mean? Well, it means that Fire Style: Fire Ball Jutsu is now a Fire|Two, and Phoenix Flower is payed like Fire Ball. A perfectly balanced effect useful just about any Fire deck that is hybrid with another Symbol. Mono-FIre can't use this.

Sasuke Uchiha rating: 3/5
Constructed (Not Mono-Fire): 3/5
Limited: Promo/5
Art: Sasuke not fun/5
