N-704 Tekka Uchiha [Leaf Police Force]

Man, it's sure been a while since I've been back! Sorry for the delay on my reviews, a lot of weird things have been happening (comp was missing for the past few days too...) Sad news though, as my Naruto binders as well as my main deck (a fire deck, in case you're curious) was stolen, so I was kind of wondering if I was going to keep even doing the COTDs. But I enjoy doing them, and it's fun, so expect me back as well as a new N.'s End sometime this week. If you'd like to send your support, just hit me up at the same email address I use for everything else, and again, good to be back!

Wow, sure a long intro. Well, today's card is yet another guy Itachi kill'd, Tekka Uchiha. Now let's look at the stats of this old boy, shall we?

T3 HC0 Fire
Leaf/Male/Sharingan Eye
4/2 1/1 CA: Ninjutsu
Rarity: Starter Exclusive

His combat isn't anything new, as we've had Hayate with stats like that for a while now, and his CA doesn't really matter (should have been flame) unless we get some ninjutsu support. As for his key words, Sharingan Eye is pretty nice as it gives another user for Visual Jutsu/Sharingan Eye as well as Coils Dragon Flame, which is getting to be a pretty good card with all the good non-Jonin ninjas seeing play out there. But as per always, we should check out his ability now:

[Leaf Police Force]

While you have "The Symbol of the Proud Clan" Mission card in play, your opponent cannot put in play any Ninja cards except by deploying them.

This is yet another piece of the "Truchiha" lockdown based off of Proud Clan and the other supporters. The first thing I'd like to mention about this card is it's not Valid, which really hurts it in my book. An effect like this should always be active, especially considering that it's situational to what's already on the field. A card like this has to be consider'd against the mission it's tie'd to, and I don't much care for Symbol. If it was a T1 card, I'd like it, but at T3, it's hard to get the most use out of it. And while it can be search'd with yet another card from this set, searching an HC1 mission and then playing it burns 4 cards out of your hand, which is a pretty huge amount for Fire to lose.

I don't want to just say "In the right deck" for this card, as "the right deck" still isn't strong enough to support itself compare'd to Mono Fire, which is a bit sad. If you can get out the lock, it's good, but the deck isn't strong enough to protect itself to that point reliably yet.

Constructed: 2.5/5 It's decent for theme, but still a hard deck to pull off
Limited: X/5 Starter card

StormVyper Zera Tekka Uchiha [Leaf Police Force]

From what I gather, a number of Fire players out there were disappointed by the first round (here's hoping) of Uchiha in this set. His reliance on Symbol of the Proud Cloud wouldn't be too big a deal to me personally, but Fire isn't a control element and this effect seems like something they added without giving it much thought. For starters, the effect isn't valid when it clearly should have been, and giving them the random control effects seems awkward. As for his actual effect, there's going to be a number of nasty Squads running amuk, which this card just kicks in the pants, just like St. Simon. I honestly expected the Uchiha police to mill or pump (two things Uchiha support cards have done in the past). As a Fire player myself, I don't see a huge reason to dedicate deckspace to Symbol and this card. Luckily, it's a starter exclusive, so there's no fear of pulling this card in a pack.

Limited: 1/5 (Starter exclusive.)
Constructed: 2/5
 
Master Wang Tekka Uchiha~Leaf Police Force

Another day, another card and oh boy folks! AN UCHIHA! AWWWW SNAP!!! O-O

Well, I'm not gonna say too much about what cards he obviously goes well with, so he already gets some points for having Uchiha in the name, but the stats and effect feel so mediocre. There are better stats for T3 and the effect requires a mission to be in play, of which is also kinda mediocre in its own way. Only deployments can only be so good, but due to some recently previewed cards on Bandai, this card has just lost most of my interest. It's only saving grace is Uchiha. Everything else is just one big...meh.

Limited: 3/5 *guessing that Symbol will be in the structure deck*
Constructed: 2/5
Art: You're not Neji. Stop trying to poke me. /5
