Hey everybody, sorry I
missed last week. I was in New York; saw Spamalot
(your mother was a gopher and your father smelt of
elderberries! I bought a coconut), the Angels play
the Yankees at Yankee Stadium (we lost 9-14), and
the Macy's fireworks show.
Anyway, onto reviews!
Itachi Uchiha [Requirements for the Eminence]
Hmm... I wonder if he counts as a leaf ninja? Not
that it matters, really. This guy is kinda the
Zaborg of Naruto, if you know yugioh. Killing any
Sasuke, Kakashi, or Itachi upon entrance is pretty
dang good, seeing as how nearly all competitive
decks max out on Kakashis. Fire is good, of course.
I like this version better than True Heir to the
Sharingan, but True Heir might be worth side decking
as he can't be killed in battle by a non-Fire deck.
Limited: 4.5/5 (two Sasukes, two Kakashis, Itachi,
and I don't know how much removal)
Tuesday's card is Itachi
Uchiha, Requirements for the Eminence, a new card
from Eternal Rivalry. The new Itachi is the Itachi
we all know, a Turn 6 Jonin ninja with all the nifty
attributes of Jonin, Akatsuki and Sharingan Eye,
with 6/3 healthy stats and 2/3 injures stats so he's
still good for support even if he's hurt. This
Itachi's effect allows you to select a ninja with
Sharingan Eye your opponent controls and discard it.
Not only can you get rid of a Kakashi or Sasuke,
especially the ones Freedori uses, you can take out
another Itachi as well. Itachi-Intervention decks
that cheat out Itachis with Jonin's
Intervention(hence the deck's name) has a tool
against Freedori and mirror matches. Right now, he's
one of the best tools for taking out the Sharingan
Eye ninja. He's also rare and has really cool art.
This is a good anti-Fire ninja to run in a Fire
deck, especially an Itachi deck.
Limited: 3/5(he's a big ninja that discards specific
ninja even if he takes a while to show up)
Constructed:4/5(he's Itachi after all, plus he's
more Chidori hate)
Greetings, fellow Pojo-ers. Today's card is the new
Itachi. This one, IMO, is better than the previous
one. It gets rid of one Sharingan Eye Ninja on your
opponent's side. Pesky Kakashi ES? Zap it with
Itachi! Bothersome Grothed Sasuke? Zap it with
Itachi! (OK, I admit it, that sounded like it came
from a bug spray ad). With healthy stats similar to
those of Kakashi, plus all around 3 support, plus
Sharingan Eye, this ninja is pretty solid (and he's
Here we have a Rare Itachi,
which is nice to see. (I hate when popular
characters are released as Super Rares only...)
The previous Itachi sucked because everybody had
Sharingan Ninjas in their decks, meaning that on top
of being a turn 6 that isn't compatible with The One
Who Inherits, SR Itachi basically had no effect, due
to the fact that a majority of people run Sasuke and
That is what makes THIS Itachi good, though. He can
bust a cap in your opponent's Sasuke (not that
great) or Kakashi (Very nice) or their Itachi even.
Plus he can use 8 Trigrams DSSF as well as Tsukuyomi.
In Jonin's Intervention he's great to play after
your opponent plays a Sasuke of some sort. And if
your opponent doesn't have a Sharingan ninja, the
fact that he can basically use 8 Trigrams 6 times
instead of just 3 times like most Jonins makes him
great to play too, where if you play him on turn 1,
you have a lot of ways to clear your opponent's
Outside of Jonin's Intervention, his stats are low
for a turn 6, you're already playing Kakashi ES and
Third APW (if you have them) meaning it's hard to
squeeze him into your deck. The ability to kill your
opponent's Kakashi or Sasuke isn't nearly as good as
APW and ES's effect at the moment. This may change
however depending on what Eternal Rivalry has to
In limited, he's strong, and he has built-in
removal. A great card to have.
Constructed: 2.5/5 (5/5 in Jonin's Intervention)
Art: 10003439/5 SO COOL :]
Today we look at a new
rare version of Itachi in the upcoming set, Eternal
Rivalry. Like the older Itachi, this card sucks. It
has bad stats, and an extremely situational effect
that will often be less playable the DL Itachi’s
effect. Besides that, he’s not leaf and has a lot of
competition for the fire 6th drop (Third anyone).
Overall, this Itachi sucks and will probably only
see any play in the side deck of Itachi decks in
case you come upon the opponent running a lot of
Sharingan Eye ninjas.
Limited: 3.5/5 (Good power with a possible useful
Constructed: 1/5 (Crappy effect, bad stats, and
Third make him almost unplayable)
Art: 1/5 (Boobies!!!)
For the Eminence]
Today we are looking at the Rare Itachi Uchiha from
Eternal Rivalry. He has the same stats as before.
The only difference is that he's a Rare with a
different effect. His effect allows you to discard 1
"Sharingan Eye" user when this Ninja is put into
play. It can come in handy against another Itachi
Uchiha or the troublesome Kakashi[ES] or just
Kakashi in general. It might come more in handy
later when more Uchiha's are released. If anything,
this card is sideboard material as after Eternal
Rivalry is released, there shouldn't be as many Fire
decks out there. I like the Super Rare Itachi
Limited: 4.5/5 He's better here just because of his
