Today's card.... well... it's just beautiful!
First off, it's the First. We're talking about the
original Tree Combat Attribute Ninja here, so you
know what sort of Jutsus are coming for those
Ninjas. Secondly, great stats in both modes. Now, on
to the effect. Like his brother The Second (the one
reviewed a couple of weeks ago) this guy can negate
and remove from play a Jutsu being played during the
EoJ. That means that, for two Earth Chakras, you can
do some damage to your opponent's Jutsus (without
even going out to the Battlefield if we follow the
wording). In limited you may not get to do the
effect that much. But in an Earth Deck... oh, sweet

Pojo Preview #3
The First Hokage
Today we preview the parallel to our first exclusive
card, The First Hokage! He has the same effect as
his brother, which keeps him in line with previous
versions. This card however gives earth a much
needed boost to negation. This is especially true
because other negation came in the form of Hyuuga
jutsu, or disguise jutsu, neither of which were
completely reliable. Just like his brother, he
negates the card and removes it from game, and is
remarkably valid. This is definitely the best First
we’ve seen, and his effect means your opponent needs
at least two jutsu to stop your DFC. Pretty
impressive. Did you also notice that he got a boost
in stats this time? 4 support as opposed to his
Limited: 4/5 Tons of good earth to draft.
Constructed: 4.5/5 He’s earth’s only turn 6, why not
Art: Supremely badass. I bet this looks even better
in the SR foiling.
Friday 7/24 - The First Hokage [Matchless Hero] -
So what is there to say that hasn't been said about
The Second Hokage? He's Earth with great stats and
the same effect. Slightly different stats in 6/4
4/2, and that support is the key, but who is
complaining? He negates stuff and removes it from
the game. I think Deep Forest Creation is going to
go off more, which is a good thing. He's extremely
playable and should be considered with all the other
very good First Hokages out there. You can have one
to get rid of BRs to help you come back, or perhaps
one to counter opposing power jutsus and let yours
break through. Perfect for archetypes like DFC,
I can see him played in many Earth decks. He's not
the end-all-be-all for The First, but he's very very
good and will be played in many decks.
Standard: 4.7 out of 5.0 (Amazing.)
Limited: 1.4 out of 5.0 (Beatstick with hand cost.)
N-612 The Second Hokage: Matchless Hero
...and I said in my review of Might Guy (tomorrow)
that he was my fav card from the new set, but I'd
like to preemptively retract that, thanks to this
ninja we have right here.
To start out with, I already gave my review for this
card with the second, but let's give it a rundown.
First of all, it's the First, so it can use DFC,
making it the new centerpiece of the "Chased into
the Woods" deck that people feel Earth will now
master. His stats got a bit of an overhaul, as he's
now a 6/4 4/2, giving him the right stats for a back
ninja, which he should be. With Satoosa, Leaf, and
Mental 2, he's quite the complete package. He's
honestly the best First in the game, and that's
pretty hard to take from the QFP one, which I really
Now onto his effect...you know his effect, he can
negate any jutsu in play for two Earth Chakra. And
even moreso than Water, that's an awesome effect!
Water has had to deal with having Disguise Jutsu as
it's only "negation" for 13 sets now, only getting
real negation in themes like Byakugan, which sadly,
doesn't measure up to Sharingan at all. Now that
Earth has some real negation, it can stand up to a
lot of the other decks out there, and with cards
like Choji [SOTP] and others, Earth has pretty good
Chakra building skills to power that ability. I wish
I had more to say, but when you see a card this
good, you can't really say much else.
Constructed:+5/5 Now I know I said I'd give it a
six, but the highest I can go is a 5, so it gets a
Limited:+5/5 Still as awesome, especially with some
of the Earth you can draft.
Art:+5/5 It's quite epic, and this is my first card
to get a "perfect" score.
The First Hokage [Matchless Hero]
..Apparently, those Senju brothers are pretty
matchless. Who would've guessed.
Either way, this card is basically the palette swap
of his younger brother, which isn't surprising since
they've done this before. The only difference though
is this guy is quite literally unmatched when it
comes to Earth's Turn 6 slot; there's no reason not
to play him, because he's the best First Hokage to
date. His effect is a pretty straightforward one,
and negation is definitely something Earth needed;
Head Hunter and Disguise Jutsu only go so far. But
between him and Deidara, you'll be chewing through
the chakra like a rabid dog.
Constructed: 5/5 (Only reason not to play him in
Earth is because you don't have him.)
everyone, another super rare preview of the upcoming
set :D and this one is not only good but extremely
helpful for earth.
The First Hokage N-612
Well well, this hokage has the same effect and
effect name as the other super rare Second Hokage.
However, this guy now packs, in addition to his
incredible characteristics and ranks, 1 more support
which means The First Hokage is now a 6/4 ninja for
Earth. Zetsu is really hurting now lol. He has an
arsenal of jutsus, from any rank jutsu to any Tree
jutsu, an incredible ninja as always.
What makes this guy so special is his effect,
unlike the other Hokage, the first is Earth, an
element that lacked easy negation, now with this
always useful negation on Earth's side, I believe
Earth can now become the Top Tier element, something
fire has always held since the start of the game.
This guy along with all the jutsus he'll be able to
use (new and old), his awesome stats, and the
incredible support Earth has gotten in this set
means that the game is taking a turn, whether it'd
be for better or for worse you guys get to decide
Totally impressed and this effect is even more
useful in this element because this element was
lacking said tech, at an easy use that is, and the
extra support doesn't hurt either even at a cost of
1 combat loss in injured :D
Limited: 4.5/5 (This guy is a god)
Constructed: 5/5 (In his own element duh)
Art: My stick is 10x bigger than yours!!/5
