based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
This goes in... mill decks, I guess. Another piece
of stall that completely skips the battle for the
turn. What is it with Earth and bad stall cards,
anyway? If this were one earth, or maybe even one
earth one anything, it might be worth playing; as it
is, we expect two specific chakra cards to be as
good as trigram or sharingan.
Cost: 2 Earth Chakra
Target: Every team
Effect: The target skips the showdown this turn.
Smoke Pellet is an interesting jutsu with a
straight-forward effect that basically exists along
the line that Hizashi Hyuga, Kazekage, and others
do: Delay the inevitable. Skipping the showdown,
which you would obviously do when blocking, just
doesn't seem worth the 2 chakra investment nor a
rare slot in Coils of the Snake. I think the only
reason one would use this jutsu is if you would be
overrun by an attack of multiple ninjas for many
Battle Rewards and you have something like Pass
Permit to ensure an unblocked team for the last BR
you need. Otherwise, it just doesn't seem proactive
enough for mainstream use.
Until Next Time-Meb9000
Thursday takes us from
Wind to Earth with Smoke Pellet, a Jutsu that for
two earth chakra allows you to end the showdown. I'm
not really crazy about it as really it is a stall
card in the hopes you can draw better, but it can
also save you if you made a bad decision. It can
also really annoy your opponent as well as the do no
damage and get no Rewards during their turn. Now
that I think of it, Smoke Pellet is a good way to
keep your opponent from winning Rewards if they are
able to punch a team through your defenses and may
actually save you. It's another one of the better
Earth cards in my opinion.
Limited:2.5/5(when every battle reward counts)
Constructed:3/5(it can definitely help you make a
comeback if you get lucky or just save your rear at
Smoke Pellet... whoa! In an Earth deck this card can
be a good one. Why, you ask? Let's say your
opponent's about to hit you with a big team and you
haven't gotten your teams quite ready yet. This can
buy you some time... or delay the inevitable. It all
depends on the luck of the draw.
