Striking Shadow Snake
Cost: 1 Water, 1 Colorless

Requirement: Attacking Ninja

Target: 1 of your opponent's standby Ninjas.

Effect: Place the target as the Head Ninja in a team battling against the user. (If the user is a Non-battling Ninja, the target becomes a new team of 1 ninja).

Spring Break is finally over for the college folk, so let's take a moment to have a bit of fun with another week of Naruto COTDs. Here we have a slightly confusing, but potentially very effective water jutsu, Striking Shadow Snake, hereby referred to as SSS.

This jutsu can work well in various controlling water builds, but it may take some serious playtesting to determine its place. The effect is quite specific and is one of those jutsus that mess with Ninja placement in the Showdown. The best use I'd say for SSS would be to snag ninjas who normally like to stay back and block such as Suzume or to pick off injured ninja that didn't want to fight. An interesting use for this card could be in a Fire/Water build that utilizes Kakashi [Early Settlement] or A-Ranked Mission, seeing as you could get a weak ninja to declare a victory against. I'd say it would be best that non-battling ninja use SSS, since it would create a 4-ninja squad as your enemy if you use this as a battling ninja. It is is difficult to rate SSS, but I would love to give it a go some time.


Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 3/5

CotD for 3-26-07

Hello there, Pojo-ers. Today's card is Striking Shadow Snake. Not a bad card, but still not seeing much action. Making one of your opponent's Ninjas go to battle can be a way of getting rid of it if you can overpower it. Maybe comboing it with The Third Hokage (the new one) you can easily get rid of that ninja that annoys you.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 3/5
