The Fourth Hokage & Gamabunta
Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto Fans.
Today's card is from Series 11: The Fourth Hokage
Now this is one card that is sure to please a lot of
players. First, the effect: it sends one Ninja on
your opponent's side to the bottom of the deck. That
is one painful effect (for your opponent). Second,
we take into consideration the stats. 9/4 and 8/5 is
simply beautiful. Plus, this platoon can use both 'Bunta
and Fourth Jutsus (Liquid Bullets, anyone?). In
limited it's gonna be a tad difficult to use since
there is no Fourth in this set to platoon. But, in
constructed... this is pure pwn4g3.
Limited: 2/5 (if you can guess how to platoon this
Art: Hey, it's the Fourth and a Godzilla-Sized
Toad... what else do you want?!/5

Welcome to another week of Naruto reviews!
I hope you are somewhere warm this week, because
here in Colorado, it’s negative 11 degrees outside.
It’s that bitter cold that you can feel your
eyeballs freeze as you walk. Anyway, on to the
The Fourth Hokage and Gamabunta
It’s unfortunate that the first platoon of these
incredibly powerful ninja is so incredibly useless.
Given, they have a good effect, but I’d rather keep
the two separate. Their effect bounces a ninja of
your opponents to the bottom of their deck. Neat,
but a one-time use. Plus, they are either a 9 combat
or a 4 support healthy. If you have them separate,
then they are a 13 total team power. Plus, Gama
can’t be removed, and the new Fourth has that “win 3
battle rewards” effect. This card is pretty much
useful for collectors only, unless they bring a card
in the future that can “de-platoon” a ninja.
Art: Always like seeing the 4th on cards, even if it
is a worthless one.
Fourth Hokage and Gamabunta
Today we continue to look at Approaching Wind, the
newest addition to the Naruto CCG. Today, we look at
no other than the Fourth Hokage and Gamabunta
I am first off going to say that I have been in and
out of TCG's and just moved away from Yugioh for a
little while just to see what Konami has in store
for it. Anyways, with that ran being over. The
Fourth and Gamabunta Platoon in reality should be
amazing. Seriously, these are like two of the best
characters in Naruto... Well that's where you're all
wrong. This Platoon in my opinion is god awful. It's
turn 8 with a mental power of 2 with an effect that
isn't remotely that well off. The effect says when
this ninja is put into play, you can move 1 of your
opponent's in play ninjas to the bottom of its
original owners deck. It's a nice effect, but there
are so many better cards out there and well, this
card is simply outclasses and not many games go to
turn 8 anyways.
Ratings: Constructed: 2/5
Hello, world, I'm back to reviewing cards! No
introduction for you. Here's today's overpowered
card, the 4th and Gamabunta.
If you can get your hands on a few copies of 4th,
and have a Toad deck, rejoice. You now have yet
another Gamabunta platoon, and yet another instant
win. Basically, you play this (and you will),
auto-kill their best Ninja, and beat the living crap
out of them with a huge-ass platoon.
Art: Is it just me, or do the new 4th Hokage cards
Next time: He's a mighty stupid-looking guy, Kisame.
Fun Fact: I now have Sasuke OC. And I only lost
because of my own Sasuke four times so far....
The Poo Toucher
Today we are reviewing a
very good card.....that was unfortunately
overshadowed by another card in the same set. (Get
into that a little later)
The Fourth Hokage & Gamabunta platoon was highly
anticipated card from set 11. It's effect is once it
is put into play, removes an opposing ninja from the
field and puts it at the bottom of the owner's deck.
Seeing as how ninja effects go onto the chain now, I
would have liked it to have valid though that won't
be an issue 90% of the time....but still.
There are a few upsides to this card: Mental power
is a nice bonus as lightning's only bad matchup stat
wise is mental power. It also removes any big threat
to you instantly just by platooning.
It has many downsides however: First and most
obvious is that you have to give 1 of 2 high turn
ninjas in gamabunta or the fourth hokage, effectivly
losing boad prescense for almost no stat boost (it
takes the combat from bunta and the support from the
A little less obvious is that another platoon came
in toad decks named naruto & gamabunta, seeing as
how it's 2 turns faster (5 turns if you platoon it
from naruto & gamakichi ) along with giving the
naruto & gamabunta platoon protection from both
ninja effects and from jutsu cards, it makes this
platoon much less appealing
The last downnote I will leave you with is this, in
this game right now, the best decks are abusing the
oveflowing chakra ninjas, and they escape this
effect entirely! Obviously you can take away someone
else, but removing that naruto/sasuke/kimmimaro
would be much better.
Lightning has the best method of curve jumping in
toads right now, so in those decks I could see 1 of
Fourth Hokage & Gamabunta in that deck. Any more
than that I feel isn't necessary.
Constructed: 2 out of 5. toads has better cards
Limited: 1 out of 5. you can't play the card, but
you just got a SR.
Art: 4 out of 5. anything with the fourth hokage on
it is instantly cool
Until next time, truley yours: The Poo Toucher
Gamabunta and 4th Hokage- Eight drop, 1 hand cost,
9/4 healthy, 8/5 injured, Lightning and Water, Oil/Ninjutsu,
Sannin and Mental 2. WOW. Toads just got another big
hitter platoon with a broken effect. When you put
him in play, Return one of your opponent's ninjas to
the bottom of their deck. Absolutely amazing effect
for toads. For an even bigger turn, play this ninja
and the platoon it over with naruto gamabunta. Not
to mention, this thing matches nine tail fox in
terms of base power.
Constructed: 5/5 in toads, 4/5 in lightning running
Limited: 2/5 there isnt much of a chance to get BOTH
this and Naruto Gamabunta.
