Friday's card is probably the most anticipated for the fans of the show, Itachi Uchiha, True Heir to the Sharingan. Sasuke's brother comes out at Turn 6, but unlike most Turn 6 ninja, he can be cheated out with Jonin's Intervention as he is a Jonin, not Satoosa or Sannin like the rest of our Turn 6 ninjas out there. Itachi is a 6/3 like Kakashi and possesses both Sharingan Eye and Genjutsu like Kakashi. Itachi however can only be damaged as a result of a Showdown if another ninja with Sharingan Eye is in play. Against non-Fire decks, Itachi can chump-block all day unless someone uses a Jutsu on him. That's the good news: neither Itachi nor Kisame have a Valid effect and both have weak injured stats. Itachi is really close to broken, but not so much as some of the ninjas we got in the last set.

Limited:5/5(Itachi is immortal in this set unless your opponent got the Kakashi deck).
Constructed:5/5(add another Sharingan Eye user to Fire's ninja).

Beastly Mage

Itachi Uchiha (n-203)

True story, not made up: First Dream Legacy pack I opened actually had this guy in it. I fell to the floor, eyes like two beach balls, and my mouth open in such a way my chin was on my chest. o.0 Even though his stats are somewhat low (some would say) for a turn-six Ninja, you have to take into consideration a few things. He can't take ANY damage during the showdown unless your opponent has a Sharingan Ninja out. In constructed, you would only see Ninjas such as Sasuke and Kakashi (and any other Shinobi with the Sharingan coin, after using "Blood of the Uchiha Clan"). In the right deck, you don't have to fear any of these Ninjas. He's a Jonin, making him able to use a lot of Jutsus, as well as the Itachi-Specific Jutsus such as Kaleidoscope Sharingan and others. In limited, however, this guy owns. He's the only Sharingan Ninja you'd see in a booster draft, meaning he's practically unstoppable.

Ratings:

Constructed: 5/5
Limited: 5/5
Art: Dramatic.../5
