Naruto Uzumaki

Today's card is, well... something else in my book. A Taijutsu Naruto, with growth and a valid effect seems good at first. But, the effect only activates when he's a Back Ninja AND the Head Ninja has the Taijutsu combat attribute. When that happens, this Naruto's support becomes the same value as his combat. That means that (in normal situations) his support will be between 1 and 3 if he's the back Ninja to a Rock Lee or a Taijutsu Sasuke. Not bad, but in constructed there are better Narutos, but in Limited he could help. Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 1.5/5
Art: No flavor text?!/5

Matthew Low Friday 4/10 - Naruto Uzumaki [Taijutsu Combination] - Lightning - Ninja

Very interesting Naruto. While the influx of broken and extremely good Narutos pretty much makes any "cool" Naruto unplayable, at least this card is interesting.

On T0, 1/0 3/0 isn't amazing but it isn't necessarily bad either. You get run over on T0 but 3 power is decent from there, though it's not Control of Power good. His text is what's interesting, as when he's a Back Ninja to a Taijutsu head, he's pretty much a 0/1 0/3. Turn 0 Ninjas with 3 support don't exactly exist these days (well, to an extent). What is hilarious is you can actually pump Naruto with something like Kunai or Unexpected Attack, and both the head ninja and Naruto would get the pump. Doesn't do for a bad +4 power Kunai. An Unexpected in the discard would create an interesting bluff.

You've got a few Taijutsu guys to start off the game early to make an early team threat. However, as cute as this card is, I still can't see it being played over the plethora of awesome to broken Narutos out there, sadly.

Constructed: 1.5 out of 5.0 (Cool card but outclassed.)
Limited: 4.5 out of 5.0 (It's a zero drop.)

[Taijutsu Combination]

A neat little boost for those taijutsu decks, Naruto here brings versatility. He can be 1 support or 3 depending on his status and if you have another taijutsu user in the team. I still don’t see why Bandai keeps making this Taijutsu Naruto, it was a gimmick from UN3…Either way, Taijutsu isn’t competitive in constructed as far as I’ve seen, but hey, a 1/0 3/0 on turn 0 that gets a boost when you have another taijutsu user is pretty nice in limited. Don’t expect it to see play anywhere outside of that though.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 1/5
Art: Recycled card art FTL Bandai…
