Itachi Uchiha (Anbu Days)-Leaf Police
Sorry I have been away for so long Pojo faithful. I was on vacation for a few weeks and I get back to work with everything being crazy. With me being super busy so I haven't had time to review. So, finally after a long abscence, here is my first review since the fourth of July.
The theme for this week is from the new set Tournament Pack 1, TP1 for short. This is a set I personally love because it was designed for draftability. However, the main reason most love this set is because of those cute little ninja named chibi. This set introduced a few new cards in chibi form, along with some old favorites. Today, we will be looking at one of those new chibi cards.
Our review today is of everyone's favorite deceptive hero/villian Itachi Uchiha. He is a turn 5 fire ninja. 6/3 healthy, 2/3 injured. Has leaf, anbu, jonin, ambush, and sharingan eye. His stats are rather basic for a turn 5 ninja. He maintains his support value, which is nice. What I like about him is he has leaf so, you can Succedded Will of Fire with him in your village. The other big thing and the major thing about him I like is his anbuness. This Itachi was made for the Anbu deck. Which got support in this set in the form of yesterdays preview. Bandai has always tried to give Anbu support and recently they have been getting some here and there. I don't forsee Anbu being a meta changing deck though. For fire, this Itachi doesn't belong unless you don't have Goal or GIG. Now for his effect.
When this ninja is put in play, you can discard all in-play non-ninja cards.
When this ninja is in your discard pile, if your opponent has more cards in their discard pile than their deck. During your mission phase, you can deploy this ninja without paying the hand cost.
A solid effect. I really like the first ability a lot. The thing that shuts down this guy is Miruko. That is a meta changing client. There are to many put in play effects that we use and if you are matched against Miruko, it can lead for a long day. That said, his first ability to clean off your opponent's Next Targets or BBQs, Michirus, etc is nice. His second ability I only see being useful in mill or anbu.
Overall a solid Itachi but better exsist.
Constructed: 2.5/5
Limited: 3/5
Block: 2/5
