based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 being the worst. 3 = average. 5 is the highest rating.
Today we look at Chidori. Not much of an
introduction will be needed to review this card.
Basically, it gives +5/0 to Sasuke and Kakashi, and
then if you win a victory or an outstanding victory,
give 1 additional damage to every ninjas battling
against the target. Basically, it's just the user of
Anyways, this card is one of the cards that made
Fire as broken and as strong as it was from February
through the end of September. The fact there was a
turn 1 Sasuke that could use the Jutsu for no chakra
cost at all was amazing.
This card gave you an early threat when
Sasuke[Beyond the Limits] was on the field. Even, if
you didn't have the Chidori in your hand it was a
good bluff, so your opponent wouldn't go all out in
the early game, or when you had the Chidori and they
went all out, you punished them by playing a no cost
Chidori that made Sasuke an 8 and possibly more with
the support ninjas, and with that you basically
wiped off your opponent's team. Shortly after that
punishing blow, you would win the game. Even if you
didn't win the game, Fire always had options.
Regardless, this Chidori has changed the meta for
the majority of last year and why it made it into
one of the top spots. The fact that this Chidori
sells for at least $30 on the secondary market must
mean something as Naruto cards aren't all that
expensive. I also really love the art, and the
effect is definitely really good. I played Mono Fire
Freedori when R&R hit, and believe me, it was really
Constructed: 4.5/5 Fire has lost some of its power
due to some errata
Limited: 3/5 Need a Sasuke and a Chidori
Highly prized by those who own it, and sought after
by those who don't, Chidori from R/R is one of the
best jutsu to be released in 2007 and #6 on our
After the Release of R&R it fueled the deck we all
know as Freedori into the top tier of competitive
decks. For constructed tournaments, this card was
brutal. It was only dethroned after the errata of 2
of the major cards in the deck's construction. Even
with the set backs, it is still seeing plenty of
playtime as it’s requirements are fairly easy to
come by. Even though it has fallen out of the top
tier, in a dedicated Freedori deck it is still a
force to be reckoned with.
Limited it's still a great card considering every
set releases several Sasuke Uchihas and Kakashi. The
cost is fairly easy to come by and it's not
completely outrageous to play it even without Sasuke
[Beyond the Limit] which eliminates it's cost
Pre-Errata and before QfP this card would have been
likely been a 5 in both categories. But due to the
weakening of Fire draw power and other considerably
easier to come by Chidori I rate it a 4.5/5.
