Beastly Mage

5: Sasuke OC

Overflowing Chakra...

The State 2 Sasuke from the collector tins can be a double-edged sword for you. Though it provides great stats at turn 4, if not played properly it can finish the game quickly.... for you! >.< That is why The Final Valley mission card has seen so much play lately. Remember, all you need is the new version of Final Valley (a full permanent mission) and you've got a powerhouse with you. Not affected by your opponent's effects is great, and with access to jutsus such as Sharingan Eye and Chidori... you're pretty much set.

Ratings:

Limited: Tin Promo/5
Constructed: 5/5
Art: Emo just went Goth.../5

Sasuke Uchiha
[Overflowing Chakra]

I can hear the complaints and moans of the Bandai forums at the shear mention of this card. "Can't be touched, its too overpowered. Has jutsus it can use, too overpowered. Nerf it now!" the list goes on. Well, do we really need to say much about this card? It's a Sasuke that is beast mode in any Uchiha-based fire deck. It's got amazing stats for a turn 4, and can be fished out with The Final Valley. Only problem with this card is that if you are running it, you won't be running the other Sasuke that made this list, which in my opinion is the better gamebreaker. Run that one with OC Naruto, and well...I don't even have to say it.

Limited: It's a tin only card.
Constructed: 4/5

5: Sasuke OC

Here's number 5 on the list of the top 10 of '08 and what do you know, he had to end up on the list. The second most infamous card in the game right now, Sasuke OC. Hearing the name makes people fill up with an intense rage (I'm one of them). The reason being that, 1.He's Fire, 2.He's an Uchiha, 3.He's Sasuke!, 4.He's untouchable by everything your opponent brings, 5.He has a mission that searches him out and negates his so called downside, 6.He has Emina on color and last but not least 7. HIS NAME IS SASUKE UCHIHA!!! That means a possible +4 with Fugaku, Mikoto, and Symbol of a Proud Clan on the field. Also, the Third Hokage can up him again. Oh, and he can use Chidori and Sharingan Eye. Not to mention, he's more untouchable than MC Hammer in his prime. So, yes the BrokeC had to be on this list.

Constructed 5/5
Limited: It's in the tin, which I don't believe you can use.
Art: Chidori FTW/5
The Poo Toucher Good Monday all you true believers, Today we are reviewing one of the top 10 cards of the year, number 5 Sasuke Uchiha Overflowing Chakra.

Sasuke is a very good card (as are the other 2 OC ninjas) so good he may be dragging down this game. Sasuke is a overstated 6/1 on turn 4 that has the ability to be unaffected by your opponent. He also is named Sasuke Uchiha, so Chidori, Dragon Flame Jutsu as well as Sharingan Eye can be used by this card.

Fire as a color has really taken a shine to Sasuke, they have begun using up to 5 4 drops to run a set of this along with 1-2 copies of both/either Fugaku Uchiha and/or Mikoto Uchiha from Battle of Destiny (set 8) to get Sasuke up to a 9 combat (making for a amazing team when your head ninja alone is almost in the double digits) that can't be touched, add to that he has access to a +5 jutsu, a 2 damage jutsu, and a negation card makes him ridiculous.

With the release of Approaching Winds (set 11) and the new Final Valley card, sasuke has no weakpoint (the deck does, but not sasuke) and it's starting to show in the meta

Constructed: 5/5. No weakness=perfect

Limited: N/A. Bandai knows to put the best cards in their tins

Art: 3/5 Not impressive but good

Until next time, truly yours, The Poo Toucher

5. Sasuke Uchiha-Overflowing Chakra

Here's the other Uchiha that's getting huge buzz, he's the OC that's second only to Naruto, let's give it up to...OC Sasuke! Now that we've gone over that...that's a wrap,let's just get ready for the OC review that works for everyone.

Naw, just kidding. OC Sasuke has a lot of differences than Naru, and some of those are big, such as Sharingan Eye, having better stats healthy, and the last name Uchiha. Sasuke has a huge support network, such as Fugaku and Mikoto, the new Proud Clan of the Uchiha, Itachi-Goal, and The Third Hokage...that's quite a family...

With all that, and jutsu like Dragon Flame, 8 Trigram, Sharingan Eye, and everything else, it's hard to see how Sasuke isn't the biggest threat to America today, seeing as he has every ruling in the game working on his side...more on that later as I find out how certain cards are ruled.

Overall, I love the OC Sasuke more than Naru, but that won't be reflected in my ratings, as each one is incredible.

Constructed: 4.75/5 This is perfect as far as Fire can go, so let's see an errata.
Limited: Tin/5
Art: 4/5

Rock Sasuke is sexy.
