Today's card is an interesting one. [Set Up] allows
you, for the price of one Fire Chakra, to control
your opponent's Jutsus, limiting the amount of
Jutsus used during your opponent's turn (yes, it's
during your opponent's turn) to 1 per ninja. That's
right, your opponent can only use one Jutsu per
Ninja during their turn. That can be sucky for
whoever's facing this version of Kakashi-sensei,
particularly if your opponent only has one Ninja
out! >.< It's a starter deck uncommon, so it's not
that hard to get. Try it and see!

Fire week everyone! We’ll start off with a fan
favorite, Kakashi! Now this Kakashi’s playability
will probably be directly affected by how Mr. Wheat.
If he rules it that because this effect hits the
player and not a ninja, it will put a damper on the
OC’s. If he rules it the other way and the OC ninja
can still fire off 300 jutsu in your face, then this
Kakashi might see sideboard play at best. It’s a
cool idea, and I really like it’s effect. 1 Chakra
to make sure they can only use 1 jutsu that turn? I
think that puts me in a pretty safe spot, especially
if I have a Sharingan Eye or a Trigram in my hand.
This is a starter deck card, and definitely one of
the better ones.
Limited : N/A
Constructed: 3/5 (For the time being. It will all
depend on the ruling.)
Art: Cool pic, but I like EDTF’s pic better.
This is a very interesting card, and I can see a
multitude of different archetypes that this card
would be wondrous against. Downside? His name is
KAKASHI HATAKE. Yep.
This Kakashi perfectly techs many problem archetypes
from the past/present, like Over 9000 and Naruto OC.
Jutsu chains are harder to pull as a simple
Sharingan Eye would stop any possible counter, jutsu
wise. Combined with Sasuke [Complete Opening of the
Eyes], you can shutdown the biggest weakness to this
Kakashi; being targeted himself. This Kakashi has a
huge target on his head for removal to open up the
Justu spamming, and Sasuke negating that every turn
can completely shutdown an entire card type for your
As for the problem, as mentioned. Running this
Kakashi means guys like Early Settlement and The Eye
that Detects Falsehood aren't going to be around.
Set Up is a defense card, in a sense, though it also
allows you to go offensive because your jutsus will
be harder to counter (and pretty near impossible
with Sasuke stopping their only response). Thus, you
can play him in two ways, which can move him out of
the sideboard in some situations. I do, however,
believe that you may consider another Kakashi for
the side because he's virtually pointless against
decks like Tempo.
I like this card a lot, as it's a very different
card with a plethora of uses and ways he can be
used. I expect him to be played in some fashion,
even if it's just the sideboard to counter certain
jutsu heavy decks.
Constructed: 4.3 out of 5.0 (Very interesting card.)
Limited: 2.8 out of 5.0 (High drop without a useful
effect, but he has nice stats...?)
Fire week is this week here on pojo, today we
preview a starter exclusive Kakashi Hatake set up.
Kakashi is a funny character in this game. There are
so many useable Kakashis that each new one has to be
amazing for it to see any sort of competitive play.
The Ability to Limit a ninja to 1 jutsu card in a
turn is an effect that would've been great in set 8,
but in set 13 it's really not all that great, add to
that it has a cost of 1 fire and you have a very
This Kakashi will not stand up against Early
Settlement (set 2), Eye that Detects Falsehood (set
10), The Worst Outcome (set 8), Growth of the Pupil
(set 11), or Even Detection of the Movement (set
12). And that's just on the same turn, we also have
Anbu Days (set 9) a turn earlier.
Constructed: 1 out of 5. If he was not named Kakashi
Hatake, we could talk.
Art: 2 out of 5. not bad.
Kakashi Hatake [Set Up]
Kakashi gets yet another playable card. Yay. For the
cost of 1 Fire chakra, this card restricts your
opponent to 1 Jutsu per Ninja for the turn. This
card punishes those decks that rely on a single
Ninja to be the user of majority of their Jutsu
(like Gaara in O9K), but seeing as decks like that
aren't quite as popular at the moment, I can't
really see this card seeing any major play. It's a
decent card with a decent effect, but his name being
Kakashi Hatake hurts his playability as we already
have quite a few superior versions. This seems more
like an effect suitable for an Earth Ninja anyway
but oh well.
Limited - 1/5 (You can't draft this, it's a ST
Constructed - 3/5 (We have better Kakashi.)
