The Third Hokage (Younger Days)

This version of Grandpa Third can be useful. When he's put in play you put three -1/-1 coins on him. He's a turn 3 with 6/4 printed, so he'd be a 3/1. He can remove one of the coins if he uses a Jutsu. In that case, the coin is moved to an opponent's Ninja. If played right he can become a 6/4 quickly, and he's also got Growth. Only downside (at least in Unlimited) is that he has no rank. Still, the coin moving can help (you'll see why).

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3/5

DIMHWT

We have for you today the youthful version of the third hokage, from set 21.
 
The third hokage is a fire/earth ninja with mental 2, 6/4 4/2 -1/-1 coin support ninja card. Upon entry, The third gives himself three -1/-1 coins (taking him down to a 3/2 1/-1) but when any ninja u control uses a jutsu card, you may put one of those coins on an opponents ninja.
 
Fire-currently, the coin theme for fire looks to be a strictly for fun deck, but a lot of pieces are out there to make some pretty solid builds. if the coin theme is for you, then so is this third hokage.
 
Earth-Zetsu has a strangle-hold on this turn in competitive decks, so the thirds second element looks to be just for show.
 
Splash-taking a ninja down 1 point is cool, but very rarely will it be a more useful option than another turn 3 ninja of your decks element.
 
The third hokage is not a card that has stand alone strength, which is important competitively. What the thid hokage does have however, is a very good system effect that can contribute a great deal, and after his effect has triggered out you have a 6/4 ninja, making him overstated for his turn (but not really)
 
Limited: 2/5 (mid game card that has to trigger multiple times to have real stats)
Block:
Fire: 3/5
Earth: 1/5
Splash: 1/5
Art: 3/5
