The Third Hokage [Professor]

 Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans. Today's card is a Super Rare from The Chosen: The Third Hokage [Professor]. This new version of the Third allows you to place three +1/+1 coins on it (they're not Growth Coins, if you're wondering), boosting his power from 5/3 - 3/2 to 8/6 - 6/5. Thing is that if you want to keep those coins in place you need to have enough Chakra, since you have to discard two at the beginning of your turn or else you'll have to discard one of the coins. The effect is still quite sweet, and being Satoosa grants him access to several Jutsus. On top of that he's got 3 Mental Power, so that makes him even better. He's pretty good in limited, but even better in a constructed Fire deck. Try it and see.


 Limited: 4/5

Constructed: 5/5

Art: But, where's the rest of the armor?!/5


The Third Hokage(Professor).  We get 2 new versions of The Third Hokage in The Chosen, both of them super rare.  Today we look at the one most people will want more, Professor.  Now, right away we see that both his and Adamantine Nyoi's stats are lower than previous versions of the Third, 5/3,3/2 instead of 6/4,4/2.  That is almost -1/-1 on both injured and healthy stats.  However, when this Third is put into play, he gets 3 +1/+1 coins, making him an 8/6 healthy.  That is crazy power on a Satoosa level ninja with 3 mental.  However, at the beginning of your turn you have to discard 2 chakra or remove 1 of the coins.  This is easily done by discarding the extra chakra fire generates from growthing non-fire ninjas.  But, even if you decide not to pay, he'll still be a 7/5 on the first turn after playing him, then a 6/4, then back to a 5/3.  I like it, because it will be a powerhouse support ninja on the turn you play him, hopefully giving you enough of a boost to plow through your opponent's strongest team, and even without his coins, he's still the Third, although a little weaker.

Constructed:4/5(He's the Third)
Limited:4.5/5(He's a high turn, but he's an absolute beatstick)
Art:5/5(I normally don't comment on art, but this is one of the best poses on a Naruto card.)


Hello and welcome to today's Naruto CotD.  Today's card is Third Hokage [Professor], a pretty nice new hokage.


He gets 3 coins that represent +1/+1 on him when put into play, making him a huge ninja.  However, you must get rid of 1 at your next turn unless you ditch 2 chakra, which is bad.


Good new card Bandai, however APW still is better.


Limited: 4/5 if you can get the fire

Constructed: 3/5


Tuesday 5/20


Third Hokage: Professor

5/3 3/2

6 turn

1 cost


Leaf/Satoosa/Male/Mental 3/Ninjitsu


Well this is certainly an interesting one to kick off my reviewing career.  He's got a bunch of pros going for him.  Leaf, Satoosa and mental power of 3 are all pluses.  5/3 on Turn 6 is a little low, but his effect makes up for it.  How about an 8/6 on Turn 6?  Sure he loses power on subsequent turns unless you feel like burning 2 chakra a go, but that may be a small price to pay for a 6 support.  Your opponent will pull out all the stops to rid themselves of this headache.


Overall, if you run Fire, consider him.  Otehr decks may not have the Fire to pay for him.

In limited, he kicks butt and takes names if you can get enough Fire for him.


Limited: 4/5

Constructed: 3.7/5

N. Jolly

3rd hokage-Professor


Hello, pojo! It's me, N. Jolly back after a long and deserved vacation!  I'm back and hopefully it's to stay.  Long live the N. Legend!


The card we're starting with here is the 3rd hokage-Professor, which states what while it comes out at an horrid 5/3, 3/2 on turn six, it gets three +1/+1 coins on it, making it a 8/5. Wowie zowie!  But to keep these on it, you have to kill two chakra every turn or get rid of one.  Last time I checked, fire liked having chakra.  Seeing as that's it's only effect, I can't see any reason to run this over APW, or even the newly errata'd Village Govenrner, which now has three mental.  It's not even like you can combo this card with anything, which makes it especially sad.  It's a waste of an SR slot, and I really can't see anyone running it.


Limited:2...just no...

Constructed:3...if you can get the fire out, then run it, as it's still huge in constructed.
