Tsunade – The one who protects the big trees

Card Number: N-us049

#4 of 2007

Review Date: 01.29.08

Average Card Rating

Constructed: 4.30
Limited: 4.40

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 being the worst. 3 = average. 5 is the highest rating.

The First Hokage

Tsunade [The One Who Protects The Big Tree]

This is definitely one of the better Tsunade cards out there with no draw back on the card minus the low injured stats. She's now the 5th Hokage of the Leaf Village so she gets the Satoosa rank as well, which doesn't make a huge difference. She's an 8/1 and a 4/0. Basically, her effect is Valid and when any of your ninjas in your team is removed from play by the effects of your opponent's ninja or Jutsu cards, you get to select and discard 1 of your opponent's ninjas battling against her. So anything that removes a Ninja from play aside from Missions Tsunade's effect would work. 8 Trigram, Water Style:
Giant Vortex Jutsu, and Third Hokage[APW], her effect would counter against and work very well. She's definitely the best Wind 6 Drop in 2007. And there's no really arguing against that.

My Ratings:

Constructed: 4.6/5
Limited: 4.5/5

Massive stats and a killer picture and effect are what make this Tsunade one of the best cards ever! She's Wind, An 8-Combat, Sannin and Hokage, has great Mental Power, AND Medical in both areas A N D has an awesome, VALID effect! If you have this, make a new Deck if you have to! JUST USE HER! The only Tsunade I have is 3-Cornered Battle! USE THIS AWESOME CARD!!!!!!!!!!

Tsunade [The One Who Protects the Big Tree] N-us049

Several versions of Tsunade were released in 2007 and this one stood out above the rest. It's effect allows it to be a perfect counter to 8 Trigram Divination
(J-006) and Water Style: Giant Vortex (J-034), two of the more popular Jutsu for Fire and Water. More importantly it was the much needed counter to The Third Hokage APW, which was abused massively prior to its errata... which was unfortunately before the release of this version of Tsunade. I'm a bit surprised to see this card on this list to tell you the truth.

For Constructed tournaments this deck is probably better as a side deck for Mono Fire. Given the option I'd prefer to play The Fifth Hokage [Recommendation] or Tsunade [ATCB] for my Wind 6 drop.

In Limited tournaments this deck is decent. If you can pull enough wind for it in a draft it's not a bad choice and if I recall Quest for Power had a fair amount of decent wind element cards.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Limited: 4/5

Tsunade(the one who protects the big tree).  We now come to the number 4 card on our list, the Tsunade from Quest for Power.  Tsunade is already a powerhouse, with 8/1, 4/0 stats, along with a nice big 3 mental power, and Sannin rank.  This one however, adds a protective effect to her team. 

Whenever a ninja in her team (including herself) would be removed from play by an opponent's card effect, you can discard a ninja battling against Tsunade.  This basically stops Trigram, Vortex, and The Third(APW) completely crap.  One bad thing is that it doesn't protect against damage effects, which are becoming more and more common these days.  Also, she isn't versatile, since she only has 1 support healthy, and injured, she's not very good anymore. 

Construction:4.25/5(She's pretty good, but weak injured stats and an effect that depends on your opponent messing up prevent it from getting a higher score.  At least it is valid though.)

Limited:4.5/5(Her effect won't matter much, but you don't pass up a heavy hitter like her.)
