N-713 Kakkou [HIDDEN BLADES]
And so far, the hunt for a Kid Kashi has been
pretty good, what with me getting one for myself and
my teammate pulling one. Just two more, and I'm done
trading for another six months! Wooo! On the lighter
side of things, the new Rogue List is out, and
hopefully I'll have a vid up tomorrow of it on the
Sideboard. Thanks to all my subs out there, make
sure to rate, subscribe, get your friends to sub,
and be just as awesome as you can! Yay me!
Today's card is still technically a part of
Gaiden week, as we see some of the villains of the
saga in the Rock ninja, Kakkou! Let's check out his
stats, shall we:
T4 HC0 Earth
Rock | Male | Jonin | Ambush
5/2 2/1 CA: Stone
Set 16: Uncommon
Now this is a card I like. Jonin is always nice
to have, if not just because it's a good rank.
Ambush is great, and always helpful. His power is
also nice for his turn, which is rare of cards these
days. Having Stone as a Combat Attribute means he
can use Petrifying Attack, which is pretty cool too,
and can be ran with Ishidate to really abuse the
card. For an uncommon, this guy is awesome. But
let's check out his effect, shall we:
When this Ninja is put in play, you can change 1 of
your opponent's Ninjas with an Entrance cost of 2 to
Did you really think you were safe hiding back in
the village, Shikamaru [U]? This card gives a decent
snipe on one of your opponent's T2s to injure it.
One thing I don't like is that you have to hit a T2
specifically rather than T2 or lower. That lost it a
point in my book, but it's still a nice effect,
especially for an ambush ninja. Being able to hit
your opponent when they can't defend is always nice,
but be careful when you try to ambush him against
Water, there's a good chance they'll burn him out
before you get the chance!
This is the kind of card that makes drafting both
possible and fun, and that's something I really like
about it. To me, this is a good card in both limited
and constructed, and I think it'd be quite nice to
see more Stone support in future sets.
Limited: 3.75/5 I like it, it's not game
breaking, but it's totally worth drafting.
Constructed: 3/5 Nothing insane to use with that
Jonin status, and that makes me sad...
Block: 3.5/5 A little better here, as it's a nice
Jonin for Earth, which is always nice.
Art: I've never seen a guy with an afro have that
"Deliverance" look in his eyes...my sleep will no
longer be peaceful.../5
