5 is the highest rating.
Today's card is the newest version of Kakashi from
set 12. This guy actually has a built-in Sharingan
Eye-like protection effect. If your opponent targets
any of your Ninjas in Kakashi's team (Kakashi
included) with a Jutsu, you can discard two Fire
Chakras and the effect is negated and the Jutsu is
discarded. This could make your opponent think twice
before using 8 Triagrams, Air Palm, or any other
targeting Jutsu. It's not a valid effect, but he's
got some solid stats to hold his own, so he is that
good in Constructed and Limited.
Kakashi Hatake [Detection of the Movement]
I'm not 100% where to rate this card as it seems to
have a love/hate relationship. Shoryken Kakashi can
negate Jutsus, which is important in this jutsu
heavy environment. That does, however, put you on
the defensive, and you also have Sasuke [Complete
Opening of the Eyes] for negation as well. I'm not
completely sold on him since The Eye that Detects
Falsehood exists and he seems like a better option
since Overflowing Chakra can't target him. Player
At the moment, I'd give him an average grade as he
can see some use, but personally I see others played
over him for now.
Constructed: 2.8 out of 5.0
Limited: 2.4 out of 5.0 (Hand cost.)
Today we go over the newest installment of the
"Let's make Kakashi even more nutz than before!"
show.....-_- Kakashi Hatake from set 12.
Kakashi has gotten some good treatment in this game,
it began with the Early Settlement (set 2) insanity
of gaining battle rewards even if blocked. We got
the next big deal with The Worst Outcome (set 8) in
a time of Gaara Tragic Name throwing everything in
sight, we got a glimpse of recursion. Anbu Days
(set 9) was a initially underrated card that
eventually won the sanin by bringing Gaara food to
the table along with being the first good mental
power Kakashi. Eye that Detects Falsehood (set 10)
Brought the Mental Power 3 to turn 5 Kakashi's along
with being unaffected by non-genjutsu users jutsu.
In set 11 we got another mental protector, only this
time it blanked all leaf turn 4's and lower from
jutsu all together! And now, in set 12 we have a
Kakashi that negates jutsu for the cost of a
Sharingan Eye! what a beast.
This really didn't need to be on a Kakashi, With
Mental Power 3, Fire now has an excuse not to run
Coote in favor of an early presence Sasuke Uchiha.
The only downside that he got (and needed) was not
being valid, so shuriken tells him to simmer down,
and Gaara just ignores him, but still.
In closing, Bandai for the past 15 months we've been
given new, improved Kakashi Hatake's, any chance you
could give us a break?
Constructed: 4 out of 5. If you run fire, run him.
Limited: 5 out of 5. His effect is insane.
Art: 4 out of 5. Watch out for the uppercut!
Until next time, Poo Toucher
No sleep + lots of homework + many tests = Sad That
Well as always, shalom my fellow duelist. Today I
will talk about the guy who seems to always get
For any Kakashi it seems that when a new one comes
out we can still find a use for the previous one.
The point I am trying to get across is that for the
most part Kakashi will always be good, only having a
few strategically less playable alternate versions.
Kakashi (Detection of the movement) is a godsend for
fire, now allowing Kakashi to basically use the
Sharigan jutsu for two fires. This Kakashi has all
the standard stuff, nice stats, 3 mental, sharigan,
etc. This Kakashi will definitely be playable right
along with Early Settlement and Growth of the Pupil.
With it's effect there is an endless amount of
positive examples I could give and reasons why this
card should be played.
We've gotten a lot of Kakashi cards, but only the
supers were any good (save Gifted Ninja of the Leaf
and ANBU). ES had his time, and now ETDF is the big
Kakashi, though his protection effect isn't as
useful as it could be. Then we have the Tin Kakashi
who, again, isn't that great. This is the best
Kakashi. For just two Fire Chakras, you can
instantly negate any jutsu you don't like. Trigrams,
Air Palm, Sand Tomb, ANYTHING you don't like, gets
negated any time you want.
The downside is that his effect is equivalent to
using a 3-Chakra Jutsu, and Fire decks have the
worst chakra buildup of the 5 elements, except for
Water (sometimes). But that's nothing compared to
getting hit by something like those ^ or even Shadow
Clone Jutsu, Giant Rasengan or a 2K Barrage. Whoops,
looks like it can't stop things like Shadow Clones.
Fun Fact: Sasuke is SO broken.
Tomorrow: I eat Dibs.
