-low cost

-potential negation

Our third negation card of the week is wind scythe. It’s a nifty little card that could do some major damage.

Wind Scythe only cost 1 wind chakra, which qualifies it as the negation with the lowest cost. It can negate one jutsu being played by anyone, even your own. Why would you though. The trade off is that your opponent can discard 2 chakra on his own to negate wind scythe. Luckily you can stack this jutsu to make it harder for your opponent to negate it.

One thing you should pay attention to when you play this card is that if you let your opponent discard 2 chakra to negate wind scythe, you cannot use wind scythe again on the same jutsu. So make sure to play it wisely and not let your opponent discard chakra.

Great Breakthrough technically qualifies as a negation, but it takes so much chakra that you might not consider the card in the first place.

Constructed: 4.0/5
Limited: 4.0/5
Beastly Bruin Wind Scythe Jutsu

Even though this card fits perfectly in any Wind deck, I don't really like it too much. The main reasons for my disdain are 1) the card goes to the Chakra area and 2) it's a negation card that has it's own negation built right in.

This card is only as good as the amount of Chakra your opponent DOESN'T have. Sure, it has an exceptionally low cost and is completely unrestricted in terms of what and when it can activate (within the EoJ step), but you'll find that most of your opponents will gladly pay two Chakra to save a Jutsu that you felt was important enough to negate.

The best form of negation is an upcoming card, but this one is okay.

In limited, this card is godly, though...

Constructed Wind: 3/5 (Extra points can be added due to the fact that it's the only pure negation for Wind right now)

Limited: 4.5/5 if your drafting Wind.

Art: 3.5/5 (Temari is a cutie)
