Lightning Blade Single Slash

Today's Jutsu, one of Kakashi's techniques (which can be used by anyone turn 4 or more) you can give any Ninja (regardless of if that Ninja is battling the User or not) and give it -4/-4. Pretty simple for two Fire (or three Colorless). Now, if the User's team wins any sort of Victory this turn, you get a Battle Reward. This is pretty good, particularly since it doesn't have a Symbol-specific bonus. Though, the bonus only comes if you score a Victory. Pretty good in Fire. Try it and see!


Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Art: 3/5

J-699 Lightning Blade Single Slash
A Lightning Blade not requiring Kakashi? Blasphemy. Can't complain too much though, as it make this card more usable this way. For the low cost of two fire chakra or the high cost of three colorless, you can make any ninja on the battlefield -4/-4. If the user's team wins any Victory, you get a battle reward, which is nice. While I'm not a big fan of pumps (or in this case, an anti-pump), this card can do the job when needed. -4/-4 can turn your victory into an OV or give you the winning edge in the showdown. If it had removed ninjas from the tean ibstead, I would like it infinitely better, but as it is right now, its effect is too weak for my liking, especially in unlimited where you have cards like Trigrams. The only pump/anti-pump card that I like for Fire is the Set 18 starter Lightning Blade. -10/-10 FTW.
Limited: 2.5/5
Unlimited: 1.5/5 Trigrams>this
Block: 1.5/5 FBG>this

Lightning Blade Single Slash
When the first Tournament Pack as released, I thought this card was pretty great for a jutsu. What I didn't think to realize was the fact that there are just better jutsu to play at that point in the game. By the time that this most recent Tournament Pack was release, I lost all hope in the card being "the best." That said, I really like the flavor of the card, but I think between the requirements and the effects, it's not as good as it should have been.
Constructed: 1/5 This card is just not a playable jutsu in Unlimited.
Limited: 3/5 It isn't hard to rush mid-to-late game with this card.
Block: 2/5 I still hope this card could see definite play, but I just don't think so.
