Today's card is one that's sure to please Genjutsu
fans. This jutsu makes any Ninja with a entrance
cost of 3 or less a 0/0. Thing is that this can only
work when the 3 or less entry cost is the PRINTED
value. So, no Shika-US-Formation here. Still, this
can stop, let's say, Naruto, Sakura, and others dead
in their tracks. Now with plenty of Genjutsu support
in this new set, I'm guessing this one could become
an important card. Try it and see.
Limited: 1/5 (Could you find enough Genjutsu Ninjas

Illusion By Genjutsu
Bandai really wants to push the Genjutsu theme I
suppose. Well, I can tell you this, it’s not going
to happen with all these small stat changers. Given,
making a turn 3 a 0/0 is nice, but it’s just not
that practical when damage and removal is the meta.
What Bandai needs to do is bring in some cheap
damage jutsu for gunjutsu users that aren’t named
Itachi. I see this being somewhat useful in limited,
as we have two Genjutsu users on turn 2, several
Kakashi, Sasuke, and more likely than not, yet
another Itachi. Other funny stuff you could do with
it is run those 3 grass ninja in a fire deck, then
drop this on them after turn 1 once you have played
drifting clouds. But then, you are using deck space
for bad cards. The art is awesome though.
Limited: 4/5 Plenty of users, and it’s cheap.
today we cover an interesting card, Illusion by
Genjutsu from set 13.
For 1 fire chakra and the Genjutsu combat attribute,
you can turn any opposing ninja with a printed
entrance cost of 3 or less to a 0/0. This is one of
those cards that will seemingly get better and
better with time.
Off the top of my head, we currently have ranmaru,
kotetsu, izumo, kakashi, kurenai, itachi, and sasuke
that can use this card. Not a bad variety if you ask
More times than not, when building a fire deck I
find 1-2 open jutsu slots in my deck. Cards like
this that are not nessassarily most efficient but
solid cards just the same is what gives this game
Personally, I like this card. But time will tell if
it's the real deal. If it droped mental power I'd be
Constructed: 3 out of 5. Not a bad 1-2 of for fire
Art: 4 out of 5. You got your Sasuke in my Naruto!
You got your Naruto in my Sasuke!
Illusion by Genjutsu
First things first, this card has the most wicked
card art I have ever seen. Illusion by Genjutsu is
very good fire jutsu but sadly runs into one
problem, the amount of users that can use it. I mean
there is Kakashi's of every kind, Itachi, those
three wind genin's, and maybe one or two more users
that I can't think of (ooh that small dude who has
red eyes). This card's effect is pretty good,
allowing for fire to have it's own water prison,
grant it for one less chakra but more specific in
requirements. I can see this card being used in any
deck that has both Itachi and Kakashi but other than
that it's iffy.
Art: Infinity sign/5 It's just that good
Once in a lifetime tidbit: Recently I've been
curious with mixing together jutsu negation, mental,
Anybody got ideas write me a letter, email is
illusion by Genjutsu
What's up with all of this T3 and under hate? It's
pointless. Anyway, this is a free Water Prison for
Genjutsu decks. Can it be good? Mid-game, yes, if
you're using the Proctor guys that are going to be
released (though they're pretty meh) or get Kurenai
out fast enough. It isn't the best cards, and even
its own deck doesn't have room for it. In Fire/Wind,
you're running Fan, KO Blow, Trigrams, and all that
stuff. There isn't much room for a card that nulls

Illussion by Genjutsu
This is, quite literally, a lesser version of J-401
Genjutsu from A New Chronicle but with bad artwork.
Seeing as Genjutsu doesn't see major use, I can't
think of a reason as to why this card would be any
different. Fire simply has better tools at it's

Illusion By Genjutsu
Another Genjutsu friendly card (With SO many new
Genjutsu playable characters) leaves you wondering
if you should stash this card, or one of the many
others in this set (And the last), into a Genjutsu
Now this card lets you go and turn a ninja with a
Entrance cost of 3 or less into a ninja with a 0/0
It's okay, but for the most part, it's too limited
to really see any playability IMO,
knowing there are MUCH better Genjutsu cards like
Hallucination (Which isn't even THAT good itself), I
see this card getting much love, even with it's
Chakra friendly feel to
Limited - depending on how many Genjutsu users of
course...but still. 1/5
Constructed - In a good Genjutsu, I STILL don't see
this card getting love. 1.5/5
Tuesday 4/21 - Illusion by Genjutsu - Jutsu - Fire
Low cost jutsu that is useful mostly early game, as
late game will be filled with stronger Ninjas
untargetable, and it's a bit weak then. I can see it
being played with a decent amount of Genjutsu
characters that are low drops, but are there many
good ones? Not a lot. There are some, just not
enough. Thus I'd chalk this card up to a decent card
with limited playability due to requirements that
could get better. Time will tell.
Constructed: 2.4 out of 5.0 (Needs more Genjutsu
Limited: 1.2 out of 5.0 (You'd need Genjutsu users.)
