Head Butt

It's two words since when?...

Anyway, I'm assuming both ninja must be injured. So neither can add its combat; so what? Unless you're dealing with the Nine-Tailed Fox or maybe a souped up Naruto, I fail to see why this is better than many attack boosting jutsus out there. Sure, it could power your team more than, say, a Kunai, but it's way too situational.

Limited/Constructed: 2/5
Art: Headache/5

The last card is Headbutt from Eternal Rivalry, a new Jutsu for Lightning. It requires the user to be injured I think, but it makes it to where one ninja's Power cannot be added to the team power. It seems to be a little situational at first, but this is a very good Jutsu for Lightning, one of the best it has right now. Tailor-made to be used by Naruto and a select other ninjas that are still good while injured, this Jutsu take powerful teams down with one simple chakra of any color. This card is playable especially considering you can combine this with the new Haku or old Sakura, Determination. Never underestimate the ability to lower a team's power, which this card seems to be good for doing.

Limited: 4/5(I forsee the guy who pulls the new Haku abusing this)
Constructed:4/5(more cards combo with this card than one might think)

Head Butt (J-169)

Happy Friday! Today's card is Head Butt, another card from Eternal Rivalry. This card subtracts any power your opponent's ninja may add to his/her team with the cost of just one colorless chakra. Problem is that this also takes power away from your team, since the user can't add any power. Still, it's a pretty good card. In the right deck it can make a difference.

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5

Hm. It's a Water Prison or Sexy Jutsu for one of any chakra and the requirement "Injured ninja."

Since it's quite easy to injure a ninja (block your opponent's Naruto CoP...) this isn't too hard to pull off. I generally hate jutsus with requirements but it's super easy to get your ninja injured.

One problem with this strategy is, things like Water Prison or Sexy Jutsu can create the same effect, without the requirement, for 2 specific chakras rather than one of any. And with these jutsus, you can defeat or injure one of your opponent's ninjas without injuring one of your own to do it.

In limited, you don't always have two water or two lightning, so a jutsu like this with the cost of a Kunai has a better chance of being played.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 4/5

Ajj

Today we look at Head Butt, the splashable Lightning jutsu that may see some play. For 1 colorless chakra, Head Butt allows you to pick one ninja on your opponent’s team and stop his power from being added to the team’s power. With a very cheap and splashable cost, Head Butt may see some serious play, as it can easily enable you to get complete defeats. But without proper negation (something lightning sorely needs), Head Butt is useless in most lightning decks (the deck it fits in the best), and without proper play testing, the true power of this card cannot be judged. I at least expect it to see some competitive play.

Limited: 5/5 (Splashable and incredible powerful without the fear of negation)
Constructed: 3/5 (Has a lot of potential, will be interesting to see what happens to this card)
Art: 2/5 (So much… anger)

Head Butt

Today we are looking at the uncommon Jutsu called Headbutt from obviously Eternal Rivalry. It's a Lightning Jutsu that costs 1 of any chakra to use. The question is, Is this Jutsu worth it? Let's look at the card closer: The Requirements are an injured Ninja, which usually means that since the ninja is injured their power is weaker... The exception is to Lightning Cards like Naruto, Fourth Hokage, and so forth, where they actually get stronger when injured, so it wouldn't help too much there. You'd more likely use it on an injured ninja that has less power than the opponent's target Ninja. This card is good, but won't always be effective... I'd probably rather use the Path to Hokage's Kunai than this card at least until I figured out some combo's with it.

My ratings:

Constructed: 2.5/5

Limited: 2.5/5

Hello all. It's Friday and you all know what that means. It is time for another Card of the Day. Today's card is a Lightning Jutsu called Head Butt. Cost 1 of anything, Requirements: 1 injured ninja Target: User and 1 ninja battling against the user. Effect: The targets power can't be added to their Team Power. I see a whole new use for Naruto Uzumaki (Nine-tailed Chakra). It could even be more useful with the Naruto(Overflowing Power) from this set.

Limited 3/5
Constructed 3/5
Art 4/5
