Kakashi Hatake
[The Past in 10 Years Ago]

Card Number: N-188

Review Date: 07.11.07

Average Card Rating

Constructed: 2.57
Limited: 3.15

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.


Kakashi Hatake [The Past in Ten Years Ago]

Don't waste your Kakashi slot on this one. There are other turn 4 jonins. Why use this when we have the likes of Early Settlement, Energizing the Brain, Copy Ninja, etc.?

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 1.5/5 (Far too many other Kakishis)
Art: Swords are cool, but Kakashi doesn't do scarfs. Sorry, but no.


Wednesday's card is the new Kakashi Hatake, also known as Anbu Kakashi. It's a turn 4 Kakashi with 5/2 healthy stats, which is the only thing different about him. He gives your other Kakashis Growth so you could play him and Turn 5 growth in Early Settlement, Copy Ninja or whatever you want to use. He's not the most useful ninja in the world for Fire ability-wise, but he's another strong Turn 4 Fire ninja. He's also a common Kakashi too, so he's easy to get.

Limited:3/5(he's a strong ninja for Turn 4)
Constructed:3/5(Try him out and see for yourself)

Beastly Mage

Kakashi Hatake (N-188)

Is it Wednesday already?! Today's card is the Anbu Kakashi (even though he doesn't have the "ANBU" stat). He gives every Kakashi in your hand "Growth". If you're not too familiar with how the "Growth" mechanic works, here's an example:

-Turn 4 = Deploy Kakashi (10 Years Ago)
-Turn 5 = Send first Kakashi to Chakra Area, Growth Deploy Kakashi (ES or ETB, whichever you want) WITHOUT paying the hand cost, place one "Growth" coin representing +1/+1 on the newly deployed Kakashi. Then, if you want, make a normal deployment or another "Growth" with another character.

What else can I say about this card? He's pretty good, not broken, but still good.


Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: 5/5 (That scarf really looks sweet)


This is a turn 4, 5/2 Kakashi that gives all Kakashis in your hand "Growth", making it the only Jonin with growth (Excluding Baki if you have Lord of the Land of Wind)

It just doesn't impress me though. Sure, a 7/4 Kakashi [Early Settlement] or an 8/5 Kakashi [Energizing the Brain] seems great in theory, but I'd much rather have a Kakashi with good stats when I need it, rather then drawing one of these guys when I could have filled its sleeve with an Early Settlement or something.

In limited, it's a beatstick with no hand cost. Grab it.

Constructed: 2/5
Limited: 3/5
Art: 5/5


Continuing with most of Eternal Rivalry’s theme, today we look at another crappy fire ninja. Today’s card is a 4 drop Kakashi (in Anbu get-up) with stats inferior to the vanilla version with an incredibly situational effect. When this Kakashi is in play, all Kakashis in your hand get growth, allowing you to play a potential 8/5 EtB or 7/5 ES on turn 5 without a handcost. Though that combo has a lot of potential, the chances of you pulling it off are incredibly slim. Usually you’ll run one 4 drop and 2 of the afore mentioned Kakashi’s meaning you have to draw into the 4 drop before any of the others. Often you’d find yourself drawing only 5 drops, or a 5 drop and then this guy. Overall, his effect is too inconsistent and with stats inferior to the vanilla Kakashi, he should see no competitive play.

Limited: 4/5 (Splashable with pretty good stats)
Constructed: 1/5 (Crappy stats and inconsistent effect)
Art: 3/5 (Would be higher, but that scarf is soo weird)

Byakuya Kuchiki

Kakashi Hatake[The Past in 10 Years Ago]

Today we look at the common Kakashi from Eternal Rivalry. He's a turn 4 drop with 5/2 stats and then 3/2 when injured. He lacks the 3 support that the Vanilla Kakashi had in Path. He's only a Common which is nice. I also think his effect can come in handy. Since he's a turn 4, you can use his effect to Growth him into a 7/4 Kakashi[Early Settlement], which is insane due to his effect which allows every Kakashi Hatake in your hand to gain growth. It's pretty nifty. Although, I don't think you'll be seeing it happen all that much because you can only run 3 Kakashi's. I'd still use more of the ES Kakashi over this guy as his effect won't happen much.

My ratings:

Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 4/5


Kakashi Hatake (The Past In 10 Years Ago)
Greetings all Naruto fans. Today's card is Kakashi Hatake from the upcoming Eternal Rivalry set. He is a turn 4 5/2 Healthy 3/2 Injured Jonin with Sharingan. His effect gives all Kakashi Hatake in your had growth. Even better his effect is valid. This Kakashi doesn't compare to the Kakashi Hatake (Early Settlement), but it can make Kakashi (ES) a 6/4 that wins battle rewards. Although a turn 4 5/2 is not all that great, a turn 5 6/3 is still good.
Limited 2/5 (We may or may not see much play for this card.)
Constructed 3/5
Art 4/5   It's nice to see a Kakashi in the Anbu outfit.
