Now this is one card I definitely like! First off,
it's a valid effect, which is always good. Second,
it's a "Negate and Remove" effect rather than a
"Negate and Discard" (or "Negate and Return"). This
guy can negate a Jutsu being played and remove it
from play. At the cost of two Water Chakras, it's
really that good IMHO. In a Mono-Water deck, this
version of the Second can really bring the pain. In
Limited, if you draft enough Water, he can do that
there too. Try it and see!

The Second Hokage
So, if you are reading this, you actually decided to
come down to check out the reviews. So, what is
there to be said about another Second Hokage? He’s
pretty damn awesome. He’s reminiscent of Kakashi
from ANC, but he has three amazing advantages over
that Kakashi. First, he’s valid. That in itself is
an amazing feat, especially when you have negation
on a stick. Water really needed something like this,
especially since Hidden Mist Jutsu is pretty much a
joke. Second, his effect REMOVES the card from the
game. That means that they can’t use Jiraiya or Copy
Ninjutsu to get it back in their hand. Third, he can
get ANY jutsu being played. It doesn’t have to
target his team like Kakashi’s effect does, so that
is a huge advantage; that also means that he doesn’t
need to be battling to get his effect off. Pretty
spiffy card if I do say so myself; deserving of that
Super Rare status. Plus, his art is freaking
Limited: 4/5 Negation is pretty nice in limited, and
if you can draft enough water, he should be pretty
Constructed: 4/5 When is negation on a stick ever
bad? He’s better than any other 2nd we have so far.
Art: 5/5 He’s slashing you with a blade of water.
Friday 7/10 - The Second Hokage [Matchless Hero] -
Water - Ninja
This card is interesting. Standard good Second
Hokage stats that I'd like on a 6 drop. This throws
yet another playable 2nd into the mix, though I
don't think I'd see it in many Ghost Panic decks.
A play off of Sasuke [Complete Opening Of the Eyes],
this Second can negate jutsus as Stand-By, and as a
bonus, has Valid and removes the jutsu from the
game. No more Jiraiya shenanigans.
I definitely consider this 2nd in metas that lean
towards late game with a powerful jutsus, as there's
not much that can stop this 2nd, especially if he
stays stand-by and he's Valid. He can also be a
valid sideboard option in this light, or a miser
copy to give you options.
Overall this 2nd is a great card, and should be
considered in decks that either have a power jutsu
that they want to pull off consistently (Water has a
bunch), or need to seal opposing Jutsu threats
Constructed: 4.7 out of 5.0 (Great card with
playable effect. What's not to like?)
Limited: 1.4 out of 5.0 (He's a beatstick... with a
N-613 The Second Hokage-Matchless Hero
Pojo loves doing this, he knows I do all my reviews
at once, and then he just gives me an awesome card
like this to review in one day...If I didn't like
this card so very, very much I'd be angry...naw, I'd
still be cool with it, because it's an SR.
Here we have the Second Hokage (so glad they didn't
2nd him or something dumb like that) with his normal
awesome stats for turn 6/4 3/3 which are my fav
stats for a turn six who's not Tsunade. Satoosa
gives him access to all of Water's best Jutsu and
the two mental is a bit of a help against all the
Shika/Temas floating around. Leaf doesn't matter
much, only that he can't be Temptation of Power'd
into hand, but you'd be paying five cards from hand
to get him out anyway, and unlike his predecessor,
he doesn't reward you for punishing your hand.
His effect is a cooler mirror of my absolute
favorite Kakashi, only valid. It allows you to burn
two Water Chakra to negate an in play jutsu and
remove it from the game. Why removing a jutsu card
matters much is beyond me, because unless you're
playing Boxed Lunch or Jiraiya (both Lightning
cards) you don't care what jutsu is in your discard
pile. Still, making him valid protects him from
being Shuriken'd out of usefulness, and Water with
good negation makes it quite hard to beat,
especially when the source of that negation can whip
out Vortex, Water Dragon, and 5 Hungry Sharks by
Honeslty, this ninja is a tank, and I think he'll
see a lot of play, especially if Water gets that
early game that we've heard so much about. If the
element can just get away from using GP (and in
turn, Drawkage), I think we'll see Water reach the
heights of power that Fire has hit.
Constructed:4/5 Awesome card, if it was a First
Hokage it would be a 6/5
Limited:?/5 I don't know, and I don't care, as it's
a good card, and I accept that

The Second Hokage [Matchless Hero]
Cool, negation with legs. This card is the Water
equivalent of Shoryuken Kakashi or [Detection of
Movement], but with the added kick of removing the
jutsu from the game. A pretty nice effect,
preventing cards like Jiraiya [Instructing of the
Hidden Technique] from recycling them for re-use
later down the road. There's no real downside to
this card, and it's definitely good, but the real
question is simply: is it necessary? With cards like
Vortex, Current, the occasional Water Dragon, and
now Water Shark Bomb to act as negation, do you
really need another form of jutsu negation?
Limited: 3/5 (The strict chakra cost could hamper
Artwork: Maybe we'll get his Water Spear super as a
jutsu, like they did with the cards in The Chosen.
Hey there all and
welcome to friday's surprise, a super rare version
of the super cool second hokage as a preview of the
next set :D
The Second Hokage N-613
Let's take a look at this beast shall we? He's got
his average (H:6/4, I:3/3) stats for turn 6 which of
course is not bad at all. He's got satoosa, 2 mental
etc the works. A very powerful ninja stat wise, now
for his calling. His effect.
This VALID effect lets you discard 2 water chakras
to negate ANY jutsu being played EVEN if he's not at
the battlefield at all. He is definitely water's new
incredulous ninja lol. He's like a sharingan eye for
water and not only that but he's valid and can
negate any jutsu unlike Kakashi [DOTM] which is
limited in both of these areas. What else? Instead
of discarding the jutsu after negation he actually
REMOVES it from play, this could explain why Jiraiya
was raised to 2 again or at least he's partly the
reason. A very very big boost to late game water, as
if they needed more lol.
A beasty card to be feared for sure.
Limited: 4/5 (His effect might no shoot off here)
Constructed: 4.5/5 (Incredible ninja)
Art: Falcon Punch got owned!!/5
