6-Pain (Deva Path) & Itachi Uchiha
"Eyes of Pain and Pride" is an appropriate name for
this card, which features two of the Akatsuki's top
members. We have here a Void/Fire Squad card with an
Entrance Cost of 7. Now, we all know how Void decks
manipulate the Turn Marker by increasing yours and
decreasing that of your Opponent. So, for you turn 7
will probably be a piece of cake. Now, note that one
of its Elements is Void. We'll get to that a bit
This Squad has Jonin and Satoosa, Sharingan and
Rinnegan, Mastery, and Akatsuki. Those are some
strong Characteristics. The effect is what gets you.
In order to put this Squad in play you don't really
need both Sacrifice Material Ninjas. You can put it
in play with either Deva Path or Itachi only. If you
remember the Akatsuki starters that came out some
time ago, then you'll remember that one Starter came
with a Fire/Void Itachi and a Void-only Deva Path.
Void's Hand Cost can be paid with any color. See
where I'm going here? This is probably one of the
few Squads that you can run in pretty much any deck
if built right!
Now, its effect is one that benefits Turn Marker
Control decks. If your Turn Marker is odd you get to
draw a card. If it's even, then you move your
Opponent's Turn Marker down by 1. In most decks,
this is a slow benefit. In a Void Deck that focuses
on controlling the Turn Markers, this card is pure
gold. Try it and see!
