Sasuke Uchiha & Kakashi Hatake
 
Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans! Today's card is the new Sasuke/Kakashi Squad. This is a GenCon promo, and a pretty good one in fact. This one works well with decks that use the 1-/-1 coin strategy. When you put this Squad in play you distribute 3 of those coins on up to 3 Ninjas. This means that you can pick three Ninjas in the same way you can pick just one to get all the coins. Not only do the coins mean those Ninjas will lose 1/1, but when this Squad is in play those Ninjas can't use any Jutsus.
 
This Squad also has some impressive stats. At T5 having 9/4-4/1 is pretty good, along with 3 Mental Power, Genjutsu Combat Attribute, and Sharingan Eye help a lot. Note that this Squad is Fire/Lightning rather than Fire/Water. The good thing about this Squad is that it can be used even in a pure Fire Deck, since there are still Block-Legal versions of Sasuke that are Fire (and some are Genin too). Since this is a Promo, you'll only see it in Block and Unlimited formats. If you manage to get one, give it a spin. You could be in for some good times.

Review for Monday
Pr-076
Sasuke Uchiha and Kakashi Hatake
[Warped Battlefield]
 
With GenCon more than a week over, we felt it was a good opportunity to review the two new cards that we got for playing in it this week. The first up is the monster squad of Sasuke and Kakashi. I think everyone has been expecting this squad for some time, and we finally see it as a promo. The card has monster stats for being a turn 5, but the cost is that you have to give up your Sasuke and Kakashi which can both have beastly effects. However, this monster drops down on turn five and stops at least 3 of your opponent's ninja from playing jutsu cards. If you've already put a few -1-1 coins around, then even more of their field is locked down by this card. In the current format, it's deadly. Your only real protection is KNS or Dehydrating them as they come into play. What's even worse about them is that they are valid, so nothing short of total annihilation of this ninja will allow you to play jutsu. I expect this card to be used pretty frequently in most decks, since both Kakashi and Sasuke are easily splashed. If you didn't go to GenCon, your best bet is to trade for one of these puppies or hope to win it at the Q4 Chunins.
 
I wonder two things about this card: Why didn't it get a water symbol? Why is that flavor text from an event that happens way further than where we are in the series with the card game?
 
Limited: N/A Promo Card
Unlimited: 4/5
Block: 4.5/5

Today’s card of the day is one of the GenCon Promos.  It is a Turn 5 squad with 9/4 heathly, and an awful 4/1 when injured. When put in play, you place 3 -1/-1 coins on any 3 ninjas.  This effect is excellent with Madara Uchiha from Set 21, which would mean 3 teams cannot block Madara. Or if you wanted to go with another route, you could use Demon’s Eyes, which first lets you place a -1/-1 coin on any ninja, and then you remove all -1/-1 coins from your opponent’s ninja to draw the same amount of cards. Then this squad has another effect, which is any ninjas with -1/-1 coins cannot play jutsus, which is great for controlling the game.  All around this is an awesome card for -1/-1 decks or if you just wanted to splash it in.
 
Block: 5/5 (my first!)
Limited: 4.5/5
Unlimited: 3/5
