This is one version of Kakashi that's quite friendly
towards Ninja Dog Decks. Potential swarming, plus
pumping up are quite nice. Add to that Mental Power,
and you've got yourself one great Fire Ninja.

For today we have a card that kind of surprised me
as to its position on the list. I know it's not used
in my meta at all, but it must be popular elsewhere,
or it wouldn't have shown up here. Happy Friday
Definitely not a bad effect, fishing out ninja dogs
from the discard or chakra. Plus, he gets a boost
for every ninja dog in play. This Kakashi has mental
too, which is always nice. Assuming you have about 3
ninja dogs in play after dropping him, he'll sit at
a nice 8/5 when healthy. Thats pretty beastly for
turn 4 stats. Only thing is, he's not valid, so as
soon as he takes a single hit, he drops to a meager
3/2, so keep him protected. Personally though,
unless you fill your deck with dogs, I don't see use
for this guy; and to me Uchiha has always been the
way to go with fire. Not only that, but we have a
better Kakashi from LoL. Given though, this was part
of the winning Sannin deck, so you have to give it
Constructed: 3/5 (There are better Kakashi out
Limited: 2/5 (Good luck finding ninja dogs...)
Art: If you have a sword, why use two kunai?
6: Kakashi (Anbu Days)
Now for a surprise on the countdown, a card that
almost single handedly (along with couple more
cards on this countdown) helped Jerry B. win the
Sannin this past year. That is Kakashi Anbu Days. It
has the basic turn 4 Kakashi stats, which are good,
MP: 3, always a plus, and a decent effect. A turn 4
swarm is always cool, especially if Kuromaru and
Double Headed Wolf are sitting in the chakra or
discard, and Kakashi gets a +1/+1 for each Ninja Dog
in play. Now, that means right now the most possible
is a +3/+3, if you actually play Pakkun (a much
easier task now with the good one from AW), Kuromaru
and Akamaru/DHW in your deck. The only problem is
that he needs to be in a Ninja Dog deck to be
successful and there aren't many of those. I
probably wouldn't have put it in the top 10, but
winning a Sannin ups your street cred so in it goes.
Limited: 1/5 (even with LB, there are no good Ninja
Dogs in the Chosen really, good luck).
Art: He's going to stab you...look out/5
Kakashi Hatake [Anbu Days]
A card that took the 2008 Sannin's by surprise, this
is definitely one of my favorite cards, and not for
that reason. For a while before the 2008 Sannin, I
was toying around with a dog deck, and did
surprisingly well with it. I regret not going to A-Kon
with it, but alas...
The ability to bring into play up to two Ninja Dogs
(Akamaru, Kuromaru, Pakkun) isn't all that great on
it's own, seeing as the current candidates aren't
all that hot... but Kakashi in himself is something
to be aware of. 5/2, 3/2 is hardly bad for the Turn
4 Slot, 3 Mental Power is far above average, and the
self-pumping ability to turn into a, most games, a
Coupled with the fact Kakashi has a line of
extremely powerful Jutsus, and you have a very
Kakashi [Anbu Days]
Today weʼre moving to our #6 card in the top 10, but
I really have no idea why this Kakashi would make it
over another certain Kakashi.
This will be a short review because I personally
don't like this card. It was only good for a one
time incident, but I guess it could get better if he
gets more support. This is a turn 4 Kakashi with 3
mental power. Heʼs a 5/2, 3/2 with two effects that
are nice. Kakashi can put into up to 2 ninja dogs
from your discard pile or chakra area. And for each
ninja dog in play Kakashi gets +1/+1. So if you have
2 in playing, Kakashi is a 7/4. I like this card,
but I donʼt think it deserves to be in the top 10.
It was definitely a well built card, but I think
there were better choices for this card. I think it
was because the Sannin of 08 used this Kakashi and
ended up winning the Sannin randomly no offense to
Overall, heʼs a solid Kakashi, but I believe there
are better options out there than a dedicated ninja
Kakashi (Anbu days)
Matching up with #8 from 2008, this installment of
kakashi is very unique. When he is put in play, you
can put 2 ninja dog ninjas in your discard or chakra
into play. For every ninja dog in play, He gets
+1/+1 when sent out to battle. So if you get his
effect off, you have a 7/4 ninja and two additional
ninjas. He creates a severe advantage. Although he
has no valid effect, he is atrocious otherwise.
The Poo Toucher
Today we go over a very special card, and one of the
most influential released this year.....number 6
Kakashi Hatake Anbu Days from the Chosen (set 9)
This is the most underrated Kakashi in the game,
During his format (the chosen) he sparked a new
archetype that ended up topping the sanin (national
event) that alone makes me think he greatly
influences this game, people tend to want to play
what will win, and right after the sanin everyone
was attempting to play a deck just like it.
Kakashi is a turn 4 that fetches (bad pun alert!) up
to 2 ninja dogs from your chakra area or discard
pile (shades of ambush?) and put them into play,
then when he's sent out he get's +1/+1 for each dog.
What I think I like most about this kakashi is that
he provides an exceptional addition to the team
power in either the head ninja or the back ninja
position (cards like this are what dreams are made
of) because in its time, the deck ran 3 of that
annoying Gaara Tragic Name guy who's a 4/0 so using
this kakashi as a back ninja along with, oh let's
say temari is a team of 10 that can damage at any
point (before ninja chaining rules even) that's why
over 9000 had it's hands full.
There are a few bad points, playing Kakashi Anbu
means that you can't play Kakashi ES or TWO (this
was before Lol) and that if you played a turn 5 at
all, it was itachi Despair from Battle of Destiny
(set 8) which wasn't bad as he could use all of your
jutsu (was a prime canadate for Suicidal Action) but
it lacked the strong arm tactics of a kakashi on 5.
They have since fixed this problem with Itachi Goal
but in it's format it was a small deck building
Overall, this is the best Kakashi of 08 to build a
deck around, he has many up sides to him that get
bigger as sets go on (as long as we get ninja dogs)
and influenced this game away from the "play Gaara
Immense Power or lose" way of thinking.
Constructed: 4/5. He was very very good
Limited: 4/5. Solid head or support ninja.
Art: 4/5. I love the anbu Kakashi art
Until next time, truly yours. The Poo Toucher.
Kakashi Hatake [Anbu Days]
Welcome Pojo'ers! Today's card of the day is doggie
style Kakashi Hatake [Anbu Days].
This card didn't see much play until Sannin of 2008
Jerry Balentuangin showed how good it was. Now, dog
decks are pretty popular. This is a great addition
to the T4 Kakashis, with a 5/2 healthy and 3/2
injured, and a great effect. He nets you 2 ninjas,
and he gets +1/+1 when he's sent out to battle for
each of them. Seeing as 2 ninja dogs are fire also
fits the playability. He also has 3 mental power.
The only problem I see is, he only fits in a dog
deck. He is a Kakashi Hatake, however. Fire decks
should always run Kakashi.
I can't really say much about this card. It's an
average card, it makes the dog deck playable.
6. Kakashi Hatake-Anbu Days
Now this is the Dog Kakashi that made a splash ever
since the most recent Sannin used to to triumph over
the 9k days...that's all I
really have to say about this card. I don't like it,
and I don't see why it took this spot on the list.
This is really the only card that I disagree with,
as I don't like that this "Sannin" card was given
Yeah, it's a good card, but I don't think it was
nearly as good as they said it was...and I don't
Constructed: 2.5/5 It's an okay card, but not a game
changer like the last card was, or the last, or the
Limited: Start this card at 2, and give it one more
for each different dog you draft/5
Art: 4/5 Kakashi does look good as an Anbu, and this
is probably one of his better Anbu picks.
