Playdoh Dude Kotestsu Hagane [Spectator]
Hey guys and gals, I'm back for a quick review. With some R&R previews, we work with Kotetsu Hagane, AKA nameless proctor #6.

*Can boost

*Mediocre stats
*Not huge boost

Basically if you discard the top card of your deck, you give +1/+0 to any ninja. Not a huge boost, but may be useful if you want to get in a little extra damage. His stats aren't great, and his injured stats aren't either.

LIMITED: 2/5. May be useful.
CONSTRUCTED: 1/5. Fire has many other good cards that you'll fill up the 25 limit pretty quickly.
ART: 3/5. Kotetsu looks pretty cool for a nameless proctor.


Hey all, and welcome to another week of our Naruto COTD reviews. Kicking off the week, we take a close look at:

Kotetsu Hagane-Common Fire Ninja; Costs: 2-0; 3/1, 2/1; Leaf/Chunin/Male
[Spectator] While this Ninja is a Stand-By Ninja, you can discard the top card of your Deck to give +1/+0 to 1 of your Battling Ninjas.

Now, this is a newer version of the Kotetsu seen in the Coils of the Snake (N-050), and already, his characteristics are the first thing you notice about him. Losing the Proctor status and Mental Power make him slightly less usable than his vanilla counterpart, but the effect is an interesting one. At the cost of the top card of your Deck, you're able to pump up one of your Ninjas by adding 1 to their Combat, and 0 to their support. Essentially the effect is mostly there for your Head Ninja, be it whoever, and can pretty much help out once in a while, but remember that Kotetsu himself has to be in Stand-By status, or the effect is negated, or non-usable.

Constructed: 2/5 (Better than vanilla version, use in Mono-Fire)
Limited: 3/5
Art: 3/5


Kotetsu Hagane

Well we kick off a new week with another card from the upcoming set revenge and rebirth.

Kotetsu Hagane
Symbol: Fire
Characteristics: Leaf | Chunin | Male
Entrance Cost: 2
Hand Cost: 0
Combat Attribute: Ninjutsu
Healthy Stats: 3/1
Injured Stats: 2/1
. [Spectator]
While this ninja is a stand-by ninja, you can discard the top card of your deck to give +1/+0 to 1 of your battling ninjas.

This is a very good support card. It has an ok 3/1 healthy for a turn 2, it's a fire, which is good, and you are able to boost 1 of your battling ninja's a +1 boost, which can turn the tide in a battle.

However this does cost you a card from the top of your deck, so it's an effect you really don't want to be using every turn. Also if this guy is out

on the field on his own you lose his advantage.

My advice is that I recommend that fire decks should try him out because he does have a lot of potential.

Constructed: 3/5 (fire decks)
Limited: 3.5/5
Art: 4.5/5 (he's ready)


Kotestsu Hagane [Spectator]

Standard stats for a two-drop, but since optional effects are now once per turn, and especially since he can't actually be in the battle, this guy is kind of meh. If his effect was valid, he'd be a bit better, as you could use the effect to boost other teams when he wouldn't do you any good; but as it is, in the beginning of the game, it's a race to build a big team, and the turn two drop is the third ninja you can play.

There are better two drops.

Constructed: 2/5
Sealed: 3/5
Art: 2/5 meh


Kotetsu Hagane: Spectator

Hey its Raij here with my first card of the day. Here goes noting.

Kotetsu has pretty decent stats for turn 2, and an ability to pump one of your ninjas by +1/+0. Not all that impressive if you ask me. It could make the difference if you're tied with your opponent, but other than that I dont see it being too game breaking. The discard from the top of your deck isnt really a big deal either as no one runs a mill deck. If you need a turn 2 fire, use Mozuku instead.

Rating: 2.5/5
