Friday, Naruto fans!
Today's card is a mission from the upcoming set.
Let's check it out, shall we?
First off, we notice it's a full permament mission.
Turn three, with one hand cost (Lightning, like all
the cards this week). The effect's pretty good,
particularly in Mostly/Full Leaf decks. Any time a
"Leaf" Ninja (regardless of rank, species, or
gender) uses a Jutsu that Ninja gets +2/+2 during
the turn. In limited this can be pretty sweet. In
constructed, if played right, it can be disastrous.
Now, we also notice that it doesn't have the no
duplication clause. That means you can have more
than one of this mission out with no problem (unless
they errata this card or something).
Now, last thing: if this card is for "Leaf"
Ninjas... WHY IS GAARA ON THE CARD ART?!
Not that it matters. Gaara's cool anyways. =P
Art: Wait... if it's Heroic Whirl Wind, why is it

Happy Friday everyone!
Well, we’ve seen some pretty decent stuff for
Lightning this week, both here and on Bandai. Well
today we have a card that’s kind of “meh” in my
opinion. It’s not terrible, it’s not great, it’s
just not going to be that card that breaks the game
wide open. Heroic Whirlwind (whirlwind is actually
one word, yet they spelled it with two…) is a boost
to the Leaf theme that gives your ninja +2+2
whenever they use a jutsu. This effect can occur
multiple times, and it can even stack with other
copies of itself. It’s mostly a gimmick card, to be
used to quickly overwhelm an opponent’s team when
they aren’t expecting it. Have HSM Lee spam Leaf
Hurricane 3 times, and he gets +9 for those, then
another +6 for the effect of this card (if it’s the
only one out there) And you have a Lee that’s 18/15.
Funny, yeah, but inconsistent nonetheless.
Limited: 4/5 (Those small boosts can really help
Constructed: 2/5 (Lightning just doesn’t have the
space for yet another lackluster mission)
Art: If this is all about the Leaf, why on earth is
Gaara in this picture?
I actually like this card. My opinion might not be
The fact that this is Lightning gives it two pluses:
Naruto vs Sasuke, and Jutsus that can be played from
the discard like Unexpected Attack and Shuriken (and
Chakra in this case). In a sense, Shuriken becomes a
Kunai at will, which is nice. Unexpected for +4?
The problem is that Lightning has a ton of amazing
Missions already, from The One who lives within to
Reunion to Box Lunch to 9th Match to Naruto vs
Sasuke. I like this card a lot, but I'd be
hardpressed to find room for it and be willing to
play it over other Missions on T3. It has definite
potential since it can pull a boost out of no where
with no loss from the hand.
I would have loved it to be on an earlier turn, but
overall it's a decent card and has some interesting
uses. Just nothing uber amazing will be played
heavily type of card.
Limited: 1.3/5 - Can't see this being useful.
Constructed: 3.7/5 - Can be thrown into Lightning
decks that use Unexpected/Shuriken and instantly
