Beastly Mage

Sasuke Uchiha

Today's card is a new (Water) version of Sasuke. This one has two effects that are pretty good. First off (the non-valid one) allows you to make a turn 2 or less Ninja battling against this attacker a Stand-By Ninja. Pretty decent effect. The second one is a good one: he has Jonin (that one is valid, BTW). He's also got "Mastery", which is a good characteristic. He's a good choice for Limited, and could see a lot of action in Constructed.

Ratings:

Limtied: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5
Art: This Emo will cut you!/5

N-653 Sasuke Uchiha [Severing the Bond]

Hello all, sorry it's been a while since I've gotten back here, but T. Giving hit me hard, so I'm sorry that I was gone for so long. But there's not time to feel sorry, there's cards to be reviewed!

Today's card is one that stirred up some excitement a while back, but let's take a look at the most sexy (as voted by women) ninja formerly of the Leaf? Sexiest, you may ask? That would be Neji (as voted by N. Jolly):

T4 HC0 Water
Sound/Rogue Ninja/Male/Sharingan Eye/Growth/Mastery
6/0 2/0 CA Weapon/Genjutsu
N-653 Rarity: Rare

We're pretty familiar with Sasuke's stats at this point, but something new on him is the Mastery keyword, as well as having lost two support while healthy. Mastery is a very good keyword (I'd still rather take ambush over it, but I won't spit on a free ability) which will allow you to recycle a jutsu a turn, which can be very powerful. With Growth, you're still able to play him on top of your T0 Sasuke, which continues to make him very playable in decks that want to run both. Now onto his effect:

[Severing the Bond]

During the Exchange of Jutsu, if this Ninja was sent out to Attack during this turn, you can make 1 Ninja Battling against this Ninja's Team with printed Entrance cost of 2 or less a Stand-By Ninja.

Valid: This Ninja is considered to have "Jonin".

Wow, this just flew by the Sasuke Fire is running right now, and honestly, giving Sasuke Jonin does a lot for him in both Water and Fire. I have to state that this line of text is a big part of what I like about him. The access to all the great Jonin level jutsu that Fire has: Sense of Fear, Trigram, New Fireball jutsu (it could be good...maybe...it with mastery is pretty good...) and Water: Vortex, Water Dragon, Shark Bomb...just a very solid list, and he still has another effect.

Sasuke can, on attack only, remove a ninja of T2 or lower from the team, like a one sided Goal effect, but only on wimps. This may matter less and less as the game goes on, but there is a pretty large amount of support ninjas of T2 or lower that see play, such as Temari, Ino, and Shion, so even later in the match up, you'll still be getting some use out of that effect.

This Sasuke as a whole is a big step up from For the Aim, and I'd recommend it to any player who doesn't have a specific SR Sasuke in mind for their deck's build. Him being a rare is just awesome!

Construct'd: 4/5 Great card, great revision of him.
Limit'd: 4/5 Even in a draft, he's strong and he'll be pulling out all of your opponent's low turn support from team, draft him.
Art('d): Sasuke in a bit of an action pose. I'd like to see him more aggressive, much like Kakashi in his cards, but at least he's not just sitting down, all shirtless and sexy.../5
