Itachi Uchiha [The Limits of my Ability]

Another turn-5 Itachi, but this one's a rare and Akatsuki. The effect is somewhat situational. You need to have both his mom and dad out to do it. Discard them, and search (not draw) two cards from your deck. Thing is: would you want to discard two ninjas, particularly one that pumps up all Uchihas by +2/+0? (Itachi's dad) If you're looking for some really good cards from your deck, go for it. If not, don't risk it (unless you want to, that's up to you)


Limited: 3/5 (if you can draft the parents)
Constructed: 4/5

Itachi Uchiha [The Limits of My Ability] N-us061

I think a lot of people are overlooking some playability with todays card. All the Itachi before now have been turn 6. This one is the nearly the same as a turn 6 Itachi with respect to stats. As much as I like some of the other versions of Itachi, I'd say this one could see some play just for his entrance cost.

His effect doesnt really work until turn 7 under normal circumstances.(notice that both his parents are turn 4 ninjas and his effect activates at the beginning of the turn). A cool payoff, but a heavy cost as well. Losing the field presence of 2 jonin ninjas as well as the bonus they give to this and other Uchiha ninjas on your side of the field for this effect is huge. Unless the effect means a guaranteed victory, I don't see a need for it.

Because I like looking at extreme combos, there's a chance to deploy this Ninja out on turn 2. See if you can figure out how.

Constructed. It's a good ninja regardless of it's optional effect, and if you're building a deck centered around the Uchiha, not a terrible choice.

Limited. If you can accumulate enough fire, which this set had a fair amount of, and a Fugaku Uchiha to boost it's power, this card has great combat stats on turn 5.

COnstructed: 3/5
Limited: 3/5

Akira Today's card is Itachi Uchiha, a rare from Battle of Destiny.

He's turn 5, which is a plus, but he's Akatsuki, which is either good or bad based on your deck. He can't use Suicidal Action, (and with 3 support healthy or injured, he's a good ninja to use.) but there are a few cards out there that help out Akatsuki dudes.

As for his effect, tutoring (or, searching your deck for a specific card) is always amazing, but his cost is steep. You have to discard Itachi's parents from play!!! Awww!

You could get 2 great cards, but you'll be losing 2 ninjas.
Two ninjas with good stats that you can't play until late game anyway.

All in all, this is a pretty weak card. If you're running an Uchiha deck, it's easier to play this guy, as you will probably be using a few copies of the parents.
Anywhere else, I'd say no, even if you think you could just throw in a few of the parents.

In limited, he's got good stats, though you'll probably never trigger his effect, and you probably never should.

Constructed 2/5
Limited 3/5
Art 4/5

Welcome to Friday, February 15th's Naruto Card of the Day!

Today's card is Itachi Uchiha. He has the basic stats, 6/3 except his injured is only 1/3. The difference here also is he's a turn 5.

He also has the basic characteristics, Akatsuki, Jonin, Sharingan Eye; he also has Genjutsu as his combat attribute. His effect is a good one, but requires you to sacrifice 2 ninjas, father and mother Uchiha. However you get any, ANY 2 cards in your deck and put them in your hand. That's one hell of an effect.

However, of all the Itachi's, this one seems a bit weaker, except the turn 5 part. I personally like DatC better.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 2/5
