Fire Style: Flaming Rasengan
Wait... it's Fire Style... yet
it's a Lightning card... o.0
OK, enough of that!
Today's card is one of Jiraiya's
techniques from the Ultimate Ninja games. This
version of Rasengan not only gives Jiraiya +5/+0,
but if his team gets a Victory or Outstanding
Victory you can discard one of the Ninjas battling
against Jiraiya. This is a great effect, but no
better than other Rasengans going around.

Fire Style: Flame
Today we have Jiraiyaʼs
Flaming Rasengan. This card didn't appeal to
me for many reasons when I first saw this
card. First off, the user requirement is
more specific than a regular Rasengan.
Secondly, some of the other Rasenganʼs give
+7/+0 as opposed to this card which only
gives +5/+0. Lastly, the effect is a little
ho hum for me for the cost of the jutsu. The
problem I have with pump jutsus is that
these cards are useless in your hand if your
opponent Sand Tombs, Trigrams, or Vortexes
you. And during late game (when Jiraiya is
out), Flaming Rasengan is obsolete because
removal jutsus run amuck. My suggestion for
if you really want a Jiraiya jutsu in your
deck is either run the Rasengan from Quest
for Power (the one that changes a victory to
an outstanding victory) so at least you have
a more flexible user requirement, or run
Toad Mouth Trap (a Jiraiya jutsu from Dream
J-303 Fire Style: Flame Rasengan
Big J is in the house with his Fire Rasengan!!! The
effect of the jutsu should give him +7/+0, for a
more awesome version of rasengan, +5/+0 is
nothing!!! His effect is pretty sweet, discarding a
ninja, but in this regard isn't Lightning Blade
better? It costs less, discards BEFORE the
showdown...Again in limited this fails.
