Sasuke Uchiha [Heir to the Uchiha]

This is a special moment. Today marks our 1,000th Naruto Card of the Day Review!

To mark off this special moment, we'll review a card from the upcoming TP2 (Chibi Pack 2). This section's first review was a Turn 1 Sasuke from back in the day with 4/0 - 1/0 (Individual Play). Interestingly enough, today's card is also a Turn 1 Sasuke. Thing is that this one is WAY better. First off, the Heir can be put in teams with other Genin Ninjas. This version is also a common, as opposed to a Super Rare. That means it'll be easier to get. He's got Growth, something the first Ninjas back then lacked.

Now, the effect is what really gets you. When he's sent out to attack you can discard the top card in your opponent's deck. When that happens your opponent can't use any cards with the same name as the discarded card during that turn. So, if you discard a Jutsu by this effect your opponent can't respond with that very Jutsu during that turn. This effect doesn't work when blocking, but it's still good. It fits in to the Uchiha/Mill theme quite nicely. Add to that the fact that he's already got quite some Jutsus that he can use, and he would do great in Constructed. Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5 (good stats early game)
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3/5
Art: I've said it before, I've said it a thousand times: EMO! XD/5

====================================
N-1017 Sasuke Uchiha [Heir To The Uchiha Clan]
====================================

Today's card is a monumental review here at Pojo as it is our 1000th Card-Of-The-Day review. Our first review four years ago was a Turn 1 Sasuke, and today's card follows in the same suit.

Sasuke has come a long way in the past four years. Back in the old days, Sasuke Uchiha [Individual Play] was one of the scariest early ninjas in the game. Four combat was the highest you could get that fast, although his effect prevented him from gaining additional team power until later in the game. Nowadays, Sasuke has even higher stats at T0 without any downsides, and is only common -- rather than super rare.

[Heir To The Uchiha] has equal stats and characteristics (plus Growth) as [Individual Play], but his effect is more helpful (somewhat) than the old super. When you attack, you mill the top card of your opponent's deck; your opponent cannot play any cards with the same name then during the turn. This can possibly shut down a jutsu, but the odds are slim and inconsistent. If it lasted an extra turn, however, I would like it a lot better. This way, if you hit a Ninja, your opponent may miss a deploy. As I just said, the effect is to inconsistent to be worthwhile since you need to hit a Jutsu (which makes up 1/5 of a deck at the most) and your opponent must have one in hand. Technically, the only other thing that this card can stop is Might Guy [Passion]... I guess...

Although this cards effect isn't useful, it could be nice in mill, growing over your Sasuke (Childhood). That way, you have a 5/1 milling machine at T1. The only problem is that Mill isn't too relevant in the current Block system, and is mostly an Unlimited deck type. In unlimited, Naruto [Dangerous Chakra] is the better one drop, and Sasuke [Shinobi of The Crimson Flames] makes a better Sasuke for the deck.

Limited: 2.75/5
Unlimited: 2/5
Block: 1.75/5
