Sasuke Uchiha [Memory of Despair]
Leaf/Male/Ninja Academy Student/Fire
Turn Cost: 0
Combat/Support: 2/0, 0/0 injured
Valid: During the turn when this ninja is moved to
your Chakra area by the effect of Growth, every
Itachi Uchiha ninja in your hand gets -2 entrance
Interestingly enough, we have the only iteration of
Sasuke that is a Ninja academy student, featuring
his younger self as it were. This one could be of
some use in a real Itachi dedicated deck.
While Sasuke's stats leave much to be desired for
the early game, his sole purpose is obviously to be
growthed into a stronger Sasuke. I would recommend
[Reason for the Late Arrival] as a solid target,
giving you a 5/0 and an Itachi that could come out
Turn 4 or sooner if you use Konohamaru. Itachis that
come down quick could definitely cause problems for
the opponent, as they may be dreading his arrival
already if they don't run Fire ninjas or they are
still waiting to draw their own Kakashis or Sasukes
to deal with it. I'd say to run this Sasuke if you
run at least 2 Itachis.
Until Next Time-Meb9000
Hello, fellow Pojo-ers. Today's card is a bit of a
rarity: Sasuke as a Ninja Academy Student. His
effect is perfect for an Itachi deck. When he's sent
to the Chakra Area by Growth, Itachi gets -2
entrance cost. In the right deck, Itachi can hit the
field at turn 2 (Hokage's Grandson + Memory of
Despair + Combat in Extreme Conditions). Weapon
combat attribute is good, and his stats are quite
nice for an Academy student at healthy.
Sasuke [Memory of Despair]
has an interesting effect for Itachi decks. It is
like a Konohamaru on steroids, decreasing Itachi's
entrance cost to 4 when you growth him.
He's under par as a combat ninja...2 support and no
Sharingan Eye make him a weak Sasuke. His effect
isn't amazing either...Jonin's Intervention with
Nawaki is a much better way of getting Itachi into
play sooner, and Konohamaru effects all of your
Jonin+, not just Itachi.
Honestly you're better off running Analysis of
Competence. Even if you drop this Sasuke early in
the game and lower Itachi's entrance cost, its weak
stats and lack of protection attribute (Sharingan
Eye) make him a bad early game ninja to rely on.
In limited, he's a turn 0 with combat, which is nice
to see. On the offchance you get Itachi, the effect
is great, though it will be tough to find both
Sasukes before turn 4 when his effect is useful.

Power: 2/0 Healthy,
SmittySensei here to review a very "selective",
if you will, version of Sasuke.
My first impression of
this card is that it's very, very limited, and I
really can't see this card getting much play in
the future. Sure, Sasuke helps get his older
brother Itachi out early to start his
incredible awesomeness, but the sacrifice it
takes to make the effect work just isn't worth
it. To start things off, this Sasuke is a 0 drop
with 2 attack, which is low considering that his
effect doesn't really make up for the lack of
power. The second thing that puts me off is the
fact that he must be growthed for his effect to
work. Getting the required Sasukes and Itachi in
your hand at that point in the game is
very limited. I truly don't think this card is
practical enough to run, unless of course you're
making a fun deck based around the Uchiha
A closing thought on
my rather quick review, he's not completely bad
in limited, but he's far from the best.
Art ( not counted in
overall score): 3
Overall score: 2.5
This Sasuke really
failed to impress me much, but maybe you'll like
it. My personal opinion is that there are much
better Sasukes out there.
Thanks for reading,
sorry for the quick review!
Sasuke Uchiha, Memory of
*omg SASUKE!* /sigh
Not worth a 0 slot
2/0 , 0/0
Sasuke, Sasuke, Sasuke. This one doesn't compare to
the others. Run Sasuke Uchiha [Analysis of
Competence] over this guy. The only way this could
be useful is if you run mono fire, and growth it
with a Sasuke Uchiha [Beyond the Limits] to
eventually play a free Chidori, and get out Itachi
that turn. That's a lot of cards being needed to get
out Itachi fast.
Art: 1/5, doesn't amaze me
Overall: Don't run this.
Sasuke Uchiha (Memory of
Today’s card is plain pitiful for a number of
reasons. It’s the lowest stats of any Sasuke to
date. I would love to see someone run this over AoC.
His effect is also almost completely useless. Unless
your opponent has no early game, their going to have
something with higher combat that MoD and unless
your going to give up a bunch of early game battle
rewards, your going to be forced to chump him making
his effect useless. Itachi is turn 6. On turn 1 (the
earliest turn you can growth him, and probably the
latest turn he’ll be alive) you growth him and get
Itachi down to a turn 4, not good enough. Even with
a Konahamaru HG, Itachi is still two turns away from
If you really want to get Itachi out uber early, run
3 Nawaki, 3 Rock Lee RtG, and 3 Jonin’s
intervention. The afore mentioned combo with MoD is
clearly impossible and incredibly unlikely (you need
4 DIFFERENT ninjas, not 2 MoDs since MoD doesn’t
have growth, another downfall).
MoD fails on all accounts. Any combo with him is
incredibly unfeasible due to his downfalls (crappy
stats and no growth), and on top of that, I can’t
see anyone taking an AoC out of their deck to play
Limited: 3/5 (Sadly one of the strongest zero drops
Art: 2/5 (A happy Sasuke running towards his
the best case with this card is getting itachi out
on turn 2. here is the combo. Sasuke + hokages gson
+ naruto legacy = turn 2 cost. I like jonins
intervention better. Itachi can be totally
obliterated by jutsu or a freedori deck.
