Fire Style: Phoenix Flower Jutsu

Today's Jutsu is one of the Uchiha Clan's signature techiques. This Jutsu doesn't really do damage like the other versions, but it's a reaction Jutsu like Sharingan Eye. Rather than negating and discarding the Jutsu, it changes its text. Lets say your opponent uses something like Chidori. FS:PFJ changes that Chidori's effect to a Jutsu that gives every Ninja in the user's team (including the user) one damage. That, my friends, can be trully deadly if played right. Remember, the Jutsu being changed is still your opponent's effect. *Hint**Hint* In limited, if you can draft at least a couple of Jonins and enough Fire, it could work. In constructed, it's even better. Try it and see.

Limited: 3/5

J-498 Fire Style: Phoenix Flower Jutsu

N. here reviewing some of the Bandai previews for the upcoming set Emerging Alliance!

Our first (non exclusive) preview is Fire Style: Phoenix Flower Jutus, a fun new card from the massive amount of new amount of fire reactive jutsu. I myself really like the new reactives, and feel that they'll give a new layer of strategy into the game.

Onto the card itself; Requirements: Jonin or Higher, Cost: FFF, Targets an inplay jutsu. Now this is where it's different. It targets a jutsu card in chain, which means unless there's a chain already in play, this card can't be played. What this card does is changes the effect of the jutsu card to "give one damage to all ninja in the users team including the user." That pretty much hit's the old Phoenix Flower on all ninjas in the users team but without needing them all to be fire. Honestly, this card is negation and massive damage, but the real issue here is the cost of the card. Unlike Water, Fire isn't used to paying three chakra to do anything that isn't an insta kill such as Dragon Flame or has no specific users such as AW Fireball. This card requires a Jonin in play and three chakra, which a lot of fire players don't like, when for the most part they could just Trigram their opponent and almost guarentee an OV at that point. But I see value in this card against TBM/OC decks, as generally they're going to be having their TBM/OC using their jutsus, and he's generally injured whenever he's sent out, especially if they're using Haku(/Futaba). In that situation, I'd rather have FS:PFJ over the other reactives, so it depends on how the meta game sways with all the Earth TBM/OC hate

Constructed:3/5 A strong card, a good card, but is a bit expensive and later game that it could be.
Limited:(If there's an Itachi/Kakashi in EA):4/5
Art:Not too cool/5
StormVyper Zera Fire Style: Phoenix Flower Jutsu

The arrival of reactive jutsu have a lot of players to rethink just about every aspect of their decks. Cards that were once widely playable due to their ability to extend their 'shelf life' like Kakashi [Eye that Detects Falsehood] have rapidly begun to fall out of favor simply because reactive jutsu give them and their near-invincibility the finger.

This particular jutsu has the power to dish out 1 Damage to every Ninja in an opposing team which is a very strong effect that can lead to an easy OV for your team if left unchecked. However, the strict chakra cost will likely keep this card from consistently seeing play; Fire isn't the best element for chakra generation, and three Fire is simply too much to pay for negation.

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 2/5

   Hey there everybody! Life treatin' ya good? lol, Today's card is a "new kind" of jutsu being introduced in the next set called "Reactive Jutsus". These jutsus are booby traps so to say for your opponent to run into them whenever they would activate a jutsu, these are also a form of indirect negation and an incredible, plausible way to counter the infamous [Overflowing Chakra Ninjas]. However, people may think they're broken because of how they work, but they actually aren't, up till now all reactive jutsus are fan-able and also, they basically do the same as a 8 Trigrams or a Water Vortexx would do, only in a different way, you still spend the same amount of chakra to stop the opponent from resolving their jutsu and they still can respond to it, but it's a new way around many kinds of ninjas and definitely something ninjas should have as they mainly are about stealth and traps right? Now onto the jutsu:

Fire Style Phoenix Flower Jutsu J-498

   This jutsu with 3 Fire chakra as a cost is a jonin or higher rank fire jutsu that targets one jutsu card being played and it CHANGES the jutsus' effect to give damage to every ninja in the users team including the user itself. It's a very nice effect but it has a very tight cost of 3 fire which means it's fan-able and also expensive to use. It's not a bad card for sure but however there are better reactive jutsus then this one and cost less. However changing an opponent's KO Blow or Rasengan's effect to slap everyone in a team is NEVER something bad for sure.

   A new kind of jutsu with a very nice effect but very steep cost.

Limited: 1.5/5 (Ew 3 Fire :S)
Constructed: 2.5/5 (Better out there but good still)

Art: Too much hot sauce!!!/5
