Welcome to today's COTD, Naruto Fans. Today's card,
a break from the Top 10, is More Growth. This card
makes any growth coin on a Ninja worth +2/+2 rather
than just +1/+1. This is great with decks that use
cards that put a growth coins on Ninjas alongside
the normal growth mechanic. Missions such as Inquiry
(which heal and gives Ninjas growth coins) come to
mind. In constructed this card is gonna rock. Try it
So, we have our top ten. But today, we have a
special bonus treat. I’m sure most of you have heard
that we here at Pojo were getting special previews
from Bandai. Well, that’s true. If you’ve been
listening to Zero’s Podcast, you know some of the
new cards already. Maybe you were curious about the
art, maybe you wanted a review? Well we have both!
Special Review from Approaching Wind incoming!
The Growth of the Two
Mission cards make for fun previews. Most times when
one is shown, people start thinking “Hm…what can I
combo that with…” or “Wow, that’s garbage.” This one
is more of the first. Boosts are nice, especially
passive ones like growth. Making growth coins worth
more means that your ninja are generally more
powerful than theirs, and as long as the battle
doesn’t come down to mental, they have to fire off
jutsu or ninja effects first. Permanent effect,
that’s pretty nice. It’ll combo well with “Youth of
the Leaf Village” and “Growthkage.” Nothing like
super coin boosts, right? I’d find it sitting best
in any lightning or fire deck that’s heavy on low
turn growth ninja. The only downside to this card is
that it’s turn 2. I personally think it should be 1
or 0 so that you can get it’s effect immediately.
I’m pretty positive we won’t see this card much in
competitive play, but in drafts those small boosts
are game breaking.
Constructed: 2/5 (Unfortunately, Lightning, Fire and
Wind all have better mission cards)
Art: Sakura is cute. I love her Shippuden look.
Alright, this is the second preview/review for the
new set A New Chronicle (technically Itachi Goal on
the Top 10 was the first) and today it is Growth of
the Two. Now this card is great to abuse with the
Third Hokage GotV the only problem is you have to be
running Fire with this card or Lightning or Wind
with the Third. It's mostly to be used with the new
Shippuden Sakura and Naruto who also have growth,
imagine a 6/5 possible 8/0 Sakura beatstick along
with Naruto's 8/0 injured. That's pretty insane. But
in two elements where missions are pretty much set,
maybe not so much in Lightning, this card just isn't
worthy of a slot. Run it as secret tech if you want
but it's not really that great.
Constructed: 2/5 (has some potential)
Limited: 1/5 (this is tentative, I'll have to see
what else is in the set)
Growth of the Two
Today is the first preview for the next Naruto set
Approaching Wind and it’s called Growth of the Two.
The card is a turn 2 Wind/Lightning Mission with a
hand cost of 1 and an effect of: Growth coins on
your ninjas are considered to be +2/+2. I like the
card especially in dedicated Growth deck to gain
lots and lots of power, however, growth as a
complete deck type has never taken off, so I am not
sure exactly what to think. Fire decks have the most
growth potential with Third Hokage[GOTV] and the
Youth of the Lands of Fire, however, since this card
is Lightning/Wind, I do not see this card being used
in Fire. It seems decent, but I think it will be a
card that is left in the dust.
Artwork looks so sick!!
Growth of the Two
Wind/Lightning mission turn 2. Permanent. All growth
coins are considered to be +2/+2. This card can very
well be one of the best growth based missions ever!
There are several ways to abuse this card, but the
best combo that comes to mind is this and The 3rd
Hokage (Guardian of the Village) Regardless, if you
run a deck that involves mass amounts of growth,
give this a shot.
Limited:-/5 not out quite yet
Constructed:In growth 4/5 otherwise 1/5 (don't
splash this thing)
Growth of the Two
Welcome Pojo'ers! Today we're reviewing our first
preview from "A New Chronicle", Growth of the Two.
Lightning/Wind mission, T2, 1 HC, and permanent. So
far so good. Let's look further into the card.
All your growth coins are considered +2/+2. Wait,
wha? That's whack. You thinking what I'm thinking?
The Third Hokage [Guardian of the Village]?
Shikamaru Nara [Thinking Mode]? Growthing ninjas the
old fashion way?
Let's see the problem here... Wind and Lightning
don't really get growth coins from ANY GOOD effect
of their element. So that means, for this card to be
affective, you must mix Lightning or Wind with Fire
or Earth, and probably splash Shikamaru [TM].
It's a good card with a good effect, but it just
doesn't suit its element at the moment. I like how
it's permanent too.
Growth of the Two
Now here's a new card from A New Chronicle, and it's
a fun little number by the name of Growth of the
Two, and it's a card that Dragonball dreams of...
What this little doozy does is make any growth coin
into a +2/+2, which is a pretty nice effect, as a
decent amount of cards in those elements have
growth. Give it to water, and it's garbage. But my
fave future combo is playing this, and then Inquiry
to heal all my injured ninja as well as making them
huge. Adding this to all of the other fun to growth
ninja, running this with Shikamaru: Thinking Mode,
and you'll have massive genins, which could combo
again with the new Kono Moe Udon squad, which start
with growth anyway. That right there could make for
a Genin swing deck, or really help out a NVS deck.
Constructed:3/5 It's fun, and it pretty much has
it's own deck waiting for it.
Limited:1/5 As I said, it's own deck, not just a
Art:2/5 Shippuden art like this is boring, which is
