J-605 White Fang's Blade
Man, this has been a really weird weekend. A nice
night of RE 5, meeting up with someone I haven't
talked to since I was 5, and having watched
Wrestlemania 26 (Not a fan of wrestling, but it was
a fun night with Rockband and such); it was pretty
fun. Next week, I hunt eggs in what has been dubbed
an "Eggstravagana", which is it's proper name. All
in all, great days in store for Mr. N. Jolly!
Today's card is kind of a new pump, just like set 17
is trying to push onto the game. I'm not into the
whole pump theme (or anti pump for Fire), but if the
game slows down, they could be pretty useful. But
let's check out it's stats, shall we:
White Fang's Blade
Fire l One
Effect: The target gets +3/+3 during this turn.
Additionally, if the user is "Kakashi Hatake", the
user gets +2/+2 and cannot be affected by effects of
your opponent's Jutsu cards during this turn.
It's a decent pump if you're Kakashi...but if not,
Might Guy will probably provide a better pump that
actually builds chakra. It's kind of hard to
validate this as a misc pump, as it has a specific
element in it's cost. Beyond that, most pumps are
generally better than this. Pumps are kind of
inefficient right now, as even after the block
switch, we'll still have Sharingan Kunai, Chidori,
Fireball, and Visual Jutsu. With all of those still
in the game, it'll be hard to validate pumps as a
Limited: 1.5/5 There's plenty of better jutsu in
block, especially for fire. Getting off it's
Kakashi super pump isn't too likely either
Constructed: 1.5/5 Pumps mean nothing here unless
they're really early game or massive...this is
Block: 1.5/5 Until the shift, this card will not see
play. Even after the shift, there's enough good
jutsu left that this isn't a valid option
Art: This sword is so strong I can kill anything
that I attack! It's so powerful, that I shall never
use it again/5
3/29/10 J-605 White Fang's Blade
Today's jutsu is the blade of Kakashi's father,
Hatake Sakumo. For one fire and one colorless, any
ninja get's a +3/+3 pump out, however, if the user
is Kakashi, he get's an additional +2/+2. While
+5/+5 isn't too impressive for a Kakashi jutsu, it
can still be used by anyone else for a small pump.
Nice pump for Kakashi
Weak pump for the cost for everyone else. The
problem is that you're not going to really use this
unless you have Kakashi.
White Fang's Blade can combo well with Kakashi
(Childhood) since it is a cheap +5/+5 at T0, and it
does not get an increased jutsu cost.
Limited: 2/5 No requirements, and there is a common
Kakashi in the set
Constructed: 1.75/5 Much better options here.
White Fang's Blade
Sorry about the Ninja vanishing act last week. I've
had one of those weeks...
Anywho, on to today's card!
White Fang's Blade is a pretty good Pumping Jutsu if
used right. +3/+3 is good, but when Kakashi uses it,
then it becomes a +5/+5 with Jutsu protection rather
than just 3. Since we do have a turn 0 Kakashi,
Boyhood Kakashi, and so many adult versions, there's
no lack of valid users for this card in constructed
format. Try it and see!
