(Complete Opening of the Eyes)
This is one card that has found its way in many a
deck. By simply discarding two cards from your hand
its like performing Sharingan Eye (as in negating
and discarding the jutsu that was just played by
your opponent). It's a Starter Deck Super Rare from
set 11, so it's not that hard to find. Though it
lacks such characteristics as rank, it's still a
good turn 3 Ninja, particularly for Fire.
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had fun. I'd
like to welcome you to our "Top 10 Cards of 2008"
Countdown! We'll be counting down the best of the
best of 2008; those cards that changed the game and
help you win in a pinch. We'll start with ten
through five this week, and continue with the top
five next week. So here we go, at number 10:
[Complete Opening of the Eyes]
We saw a lot of variations on Sasuke this year,
mainly because we saw the Battle at the Valley of
the End in the anime. Naturally, we'd see a lot of
characters from that arc, especially our two main
heroes. Personally, I think we have three different
Sasuke that can be run in a fire deck or splashed in
others (this, OC, and Breaking off the Connection),
and this is one of my favorites. For the simple cost
of any two cards from your hand, you can negate ANY
jutsu being played. No specific targets, no specific
cards have to be discarded from hand; you can negate
with impunity. Here is the beauty of it, he doesn't
even have to be battling. So, our little emo friend
here can just sit back and play the nice little "Sharingan
on a Stick" role. Honestly, you don't even want him
to be battling, because he's vunerable to the ever
popular shuriken jutsu card. This card gets even
better, its a starter deck card! Meaning, you can
have this card no problem for a small ten dollars,
plus you get some other starter exclusives and a
Drifting Clouds. Pretty decent deal if you ask me.
Want more negation for low cost? Use him in
conjunction with Karenbana. That's two potential
floating negations that you can use (and splash in
almost any deck) that will keep your opponent locked
down. Gotta love the card. The only problem is, if
you are running this in threes, you can't run the
other two beastly Sasuke. But, that's mostly a
matter of personal choice.
Limited: 5/5 (It comes in the starter...)
Art: Now thats an evil eye.
Card #2: Sasuke Uchiha
[Complete Opening of the Eyes]
One of the most influential cards in the meta, and
doesn't even need to be played in a specific deck.
Sasuke Uchiha is my #2 for 2008, and is likely the
same for most others.
One of the most powerful ninjas in the game, with
over-the-par stats for his drop, a devastating
effect, and being on one of the most supportive
elements in the game, Sasuke is a force to be
His power is his effect, which is one of the most
overpowered ones seen around. 2 cards to shut down
your opponent is a solid deal, especially if it wins
you the game there and then. This card is feared for
a reason, and feared it should be.
Unless something changes, expect to see Sasuke in
2-3's in most Top Decks.
Sasuke Uchiha[Complete Opening of the Eyes]
Sorry for the lack of reviews over the past several
weeks. This week and next week is our countdown of
the top 10 cards that were released in 2008. Today
we'll start off with number ten and work our way
down to #1.
At number ten, we have the starter exclusive Super
Rare Sasuke Uchiha[Complete Opening of the Eyes].
This card came straight from the Approaching Wind
starter decks at the latter end of November. This
card has been a smash hit on the meta since its
Sasuke is a very versatile card. He's a turn 3, Fire
ninja with nice stats of
5/2 in healthy, and horrid injured stats of 0/0.
Sasuke is best in an Uchiha Family deck or currently
being splashed in a lot of decks for his very
versatile effect of negating Jutsu for the cost of 2
cards in your hand. With this Uchiha family deck
that uses cards like Symbol of the Proud Clan,
Fugaku Uchiha, and Mikoto Uchiha, Sasuke's overall
power gets a push to the top.
Sasuke is more of a head ninja compared to being a
support ninja even though he does have two support.
Being splashed into other decks is no problem. Just
take a look at Chain Lightning, a very popular deck
now that involved Naruto[OC] and Shadow Clone Jutsu
and also runs this Sasuke. The deck runs almost no
negation in terms of Jutsu besides Sasuke, and
that's why he's good.
Chain Lightning cycles ninjaback into the deck via
the client Emina, which will give you an extra draw
per turn as long as you have the 5 ninja. The
discarding effect of Sasuke doesn't hurt Chain
Lightning because they also run The Reunion of the
Former teacher, which allows the player to draw to 3
cards at the beginning of the turn when you have 2
or less. Sasuke will almost ensure that your Shadow
Clone Jutsu will go off, or in Uchiha Family, your 8
Trigram will resolve without it being negated by
your opponent. I love using this card over Sasuke[OC]
even though Sasuke has huge stats for a turn 4 and
can't be touched by anything your opponent has. The
versatility of this Sasuke is unprecedented and is a
very nice addition to the turn 3 ninja slot.
Limited: Starter Deck/5
Sasuke (Complete Opening of the Eyes)
Who ever thought a starter super would be one of the
best cards to come out of 2008? Not me, but it is a
very good choice. He's 5/2 healthy, 0/0 Injured. He
has all the classic sasuke attributes, and a twisted
effect. The ability to negate any jutsu at a 2 card
discard makes any deck with copies of sharigan eye
that much more disgusting. And since he is a 3 drop,
he takes the early game by storm. Not bad for an emo
Constructed: 4.5/5 (only due to slightly better
Sasuke Uchiha [Complete Opening of the Eyes]
Welcome Pojo'ers! Today's Card of the day is Sasuke
Uchiha [Complete Opening of the Eyes].
Coming from the Approaching Wind Starters, this
Sasuke is one of the most played now. I'll admit,
when I first looked at it, I didn't like this card.
However, after looking through the cost, it is a
really good card. What you need to judge on, is
whether you like to discard 2 cards from your hand
(thus you need this ninja on the field), or play a
jutsu (1 card from your hand AND a jutsu cost) to
What makes this card solid, is the effect. You
can splash him in any deck and he'll be a negation
for you MULTIPLE TIMES, but once per turn. A good
The Poo Toucher
Hello all you naruto fans! We have a special treat
for you, we are going over the 10 cards that have
most effected this game in 2008. That means we will
be talking about sets 8-11, we start with our #10
Sasuke Uchiha, Complete Opening of the Eyes is only
this low because of how recent it was introduced (if
this was, let's say in set 8, we're talking T5 IMO)
He has an ability that is making many many people
re-think their stance on how to set up curve in
relation to turn 3. Before this (as well as sakura
growing power and naruto growing power both out of
set 11) turn 3 was mostly filled with on-color
ninjas and did not exceed 2-3 (unless of course we
are talking about tempo decks) but he has a few key
things that have sparked a revolution in that
The first thing is the most obvious. In the game as
it is now, the best ninja are unaffected by damage
and removal. Making your jutsu lineup conform to
this is difficult, and as a result, a lot of decks
rely heavily upon negation and pumps because they
can indirectly affect said ninjas. Sasuke can negate
any jutsu card being played as long as you have 2
cards in your hand. With a solid draw source this
can be once every turn, that alone gives him T10
Sasuke also falls on a turn that overall is pretty
underwhelming. Upon release of this card, most decks
play only ninjas on turn 3 that are the same color
as their jutsu and mission cards (thus the phrase
on-color) which meant that you had Hayate DAP from
Curse of the Sand (set 3), maby the double-headed
wolf from Battle of Destiny (set 8) in fire, Shizune
Intensive Care from Battle of Destiny (set 8) was
well liked in wind (now people like medical kunoichi
from the new set but we're talking pre-AW),
Lightning was in love with Naruto Overflowing Chakra
(broksauce naruto from the tin) or Anko Blocking the
Ambition from the Chosen (set 9), Water is attached
to a different sasuke, living in the dark world from
Lineage of Legends (set 10) and every now and again,
I see a Tayuya State 1 from Quest for Power (set 7)
in there. In earth, I fell head over heels for
Nagare from Lineage of Legends (set 10) but I've
seen a wide variety of things in there because earth
is more of a fun element for now. With that
mind-set, a ninja who was a 5/2 healthy (darn sasuke
syndrome) and can negate jutsu without battling is a
thing of dreams.
The final positive I'll get into about this card is
this. Can anyone honestly name a amazing sasuke
uchiha that's not a broksauce OC? Beyond the Limits
from revenge and rebirth (set 4) is in huge decline
as he has sasuke syndrome and needs to be a head
ninja for his effect to be effective (chidori only
boosts the combat), Firm Determination from lineage
of legends has become a stand-by but has no effect
if he's battling later in the game, the promo Firm
Determination falls on a turn that is primarily used
as a support turn, and living in the dark world from
lineage of legends only has a effect if you are on
the offensive, granted it's a great effect but he
still has to be sent out to battle to use his
effect. This sasuke is a gold standard for the
character in the same way control of power from
revenge and rebirth is a gold standard for the
naruto character. He is highly effective in any
element and because of that he has made the top 10
for the year.
Like most cards (darn OC's ruining bandai's rep)
sasuke does have a few flaws to it. He's not valid,
so he's going to remain in the village a lot of
games (making his 5/2 status more of a bling-bling
effect than being a factor). He also can only use
his effect ONCE per turn, so you have to be careful
when you activate his ability. He also cost 2 cards
(one more than his japan effect I think) and that
may not seem like much, but you need to have a solid
draw source to abuse him, otherwise he's just a
beefcake of a ninja.
That said, he is an amazing ninja, and I know that
if I am building a deck, he's one of the first turn
3's I look at (along with DAP Hayate).
Constructed: 4 out of 5. Not perfect, but does
exactly what he needs to, and brings more beef to a
turn I thought could use it.
Limited: N.A. Starter exclusive making me pay $30
for a playset (well played bandai, well played)
Art: 1 out of 5. I, personally am not a fan.
10. Sasuke-Complete Opening of the Eyes(COOTE)
Well, we're to the top ten of Naruto, and to start
with we've got one of my favoire characters, Sasuke
in this most ran form. With this card, you can drop
two cards from your hand at one point in the chain
to negate a jutsu. That right there makes him
splashable in any deck that isn't using a different
Sasuke, and that my friend is power.
This card is good, and not because it's massively
over statted, but because it's effect can be used if
it's not battling. So if your opponent has two cards
in hand, they have a Sharingan Eye, period, but it
can be stopped by Shuriken, but if you're running
lightning, you're running this anyway. With a card
this versitile, you don't need much else backing you
up, and you have the added bonus of Sharingan with
This card is incredible, and pretty much staple,
something that I expected when I saw this card, but
it's exploded even more than I thought it could.
This is one of the game changers of 2008, and if you
ever end up facing it, you'll know why.
Constructed: 4.75/5 It's good, but not perfect
because it lacks a valid effect
Limited: is not possible, as it's a starter deck
Art: Ugly/5 I hate it, and Sasuke looks stupid, and
I hate it.
