Beastly Mage

Welcome to today's Card of the Day. Tenten is up!

This version of Tenten is by far, the one I like the most. First off, she's got some nice stats (including "growth" and 2 mental power). Second, the effect is perfect for Earth/Weapon Decks. During the Exchange of Jutsu you can move one Jutsu card that requires a "Weapon" combat attribute user from your hand to your Chakra Area, and in that case you can give one damage to one Ninja battling her team (a Ninja with an entrance cost of 3 or less). Remember, it's the Jutsu cards that say "Requirement: Weapon Combat Attribute". This is one card that trully deserves a spot in the Weapon deck. Try it and see.

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5 (Solid stats, and the possibility of drafting the right Jutsus)
Constructed: 3.5/5 (She could do more damage here)
Art: ^_^/5 (even though she's mad)

Matthew Low Wednesday 4/1 - Tenten [Attack in Waves] - Ninja - Earth

She's a 2/2 all around with a nifty effect. Basically during the Exchange of Jutsu you charge a Requirements: Weapon Jutsu to deal a damage to a T3 or less. Damage is always a good thing, especially against pesky Ninjas like Naruto [Control of Power] and Valid guys. We all know Gaara these days.

The problem with Tenten is that it requires you to run Weapon jutsus, for which there aren't too many extremely playable ones at the moment. She can be a good start to a Weapon deck filled with Jutsus that can turn into damage for -1 chakra cost, but then there goes [Summoning Weapons].

Unfortunately this stamping of Tenten regulates her to Weapon decks for optimal use, which we haven't really been able to create competitively as of yet. But it's a start.

Constructed: 2.8 out of 5.0 (Great effect but stamped to a currently subpar archetype. Could change in the future.)
Limited: 3.0 out of 5.0 (Average grade; ok stats with effect that won't be used.)

Today we are previewing a new tenten from set 13.

This card has the ability to charge a weapon jutsu from your hand to give 1 damage to a ninja that's turn 3 or less. Wait? it's not valid? oh that's awful.......

Back when we were at 40, this could maybe sneak into decks. Right now? it's just not going to cut it in competitive play. One thing that would've helped was validity because the tenten you'd growth it off of (summoning weapons from set 10) isn't valid, so you'd get a +2/+2 (1 from growth 1 because of the stat boost) and an effect. Sadly, that was not the case.

Constructed: 2 out of 5. There's a much better tenten

art: 3 out of 5. Pretty neat art.

Poo Toucher AWAYYY!
That Guy Tenten

Now presenting....duh duh duh dahhhh.....That Guy!

Thank you, thank you, but enough about me, let's talk about someone who hasn't been under a spotlight in a very long time. I'm talking about TENTEN!

For those of you who play Naruto, Tenten is a Naruto character who's teamed with Rock Lee and Neji and has had as much camera time before the time skip as Teuchi, the owner of Ichiraku Ramen Bar.

Tenten (Attack in Waves) is quite possibly the best Tenten we have ever received. Her stats for a turn 2 ninja are fair and stay the same when injured. She has growth, two mental, but sadly her effect isn't valid. With Tenten's effect you can drop an extra card for chakra that has a requirement "weapon combat attribute". Then you can injure a ninja with an entrance cost of 3 or less battling against her. Now this isn't the best effect ever but it does allow Tenten to set up for Rising Twin Dragon, there is also another card that has RTD's effect but for free but it doesn't come to mind. Then going through the whole Kunai combo for your boost. Honestly, weapon's been given a few tricks here and there but nothing that makes it competitive; this card including.

Constructed: 4/5(In a weapons deck)
2.5/5 (In an Earth deck)

Limited: ?/5 I know as much about the next set as you. But if there is any weapon support then 3/5

Art: I bet she a pocket knife with a thousand attachments!
Mark Howard Today we have the Meg of Naruto, Tenten. Sort of an ugly picture, but you can clearly see that both Tenten and Neji have recently been training in the ways of the force.

All she lets you do is, basically, turn a Weapon jutsu into damage. An excellent effect, and would be ridiculous in a Weapon deck.

However, Tenten has the distinct downside of being named Tenten. Yes, we all know it's a funny name, but if you could use [Summoning Weapons] alongside this same Tenten, you could be scoring free brunette damage every turn. Sadly, even in a weapon deck, SW would still be the better choice. Shooting Star could break this card and have your opponent wave a white flag, but that's just bad for consistency.

Other than the effect, she just has average stats (2/2-2/2) with Growth. Nice, but not awesome, and the combat is irrelevant, since you shouldn't be using her as a head ninja. Finally, nonvalid effect :(

2/5 (4.5/5 if she had her name legally changed)
Art: Ugly brunette Jedi gunna cut you
Fun Fact: Tenten is one of Kishimoto's favorite characters, but even that doesn't warrent her a life.

[Attack in Waves]

Today we continue our earth theme with Tenten! She’s certainly an interesting card, not as useful as Ino from yesterday however. This Tenten can ping your opponents ninja by only sending a single weapon combat attribute jutsu to your chakra area. Pretty decent, free chakra and a damage to one of your opponents ninja? I like. Of course, this will see the most use in weapon decks, generally with a form of recycling. She’s not valid, so keep her protected.

Limited: N/A We don’t know if there are weapon jutsu in this set yet.
Constructed: 3/5 In a weapon deck.
StormVyper Zera Tenten [Attack in Waves]

We continue Earth week with Tenten [Attack in Waves] from set #13, A Fateful Reunion. Her effect is obviously good, turning any Weapon jutsu into a free 1 Damage if the target has an Entrance Cost of 3 or less, which adds a bit more depth to what the deck's Jutsu lineup can actually do. This card is definitely a step in the right direction as far as boosting the Weapon archetype goes, but she's outclassed in a dedicated Weapon deck by Tenten [Summoning Weapons]. I like this card quite bit, but in a Weapon deck, I would assume you'd want to actually use those Iron Chains/Nunchaku and then of course use them some more. However, this card definitely adds a bit of depth to the Weapon deck's Jutsu line-up. I'd definitely try her out as a one-of, but as of right now, I feel [Summoning Weapons] has got her beat. Don't feel bad [Attack in Waves], she better than a lot of Tenten.

Constructed: 3.0 out of 5.0 (She's a good card, but there's a better Tenten for the Weapon theme)
Art: Those are some pretty cool kunai she's sporting. <3
