Earth Style: Earth Pike
Today's card is one of Kakuzu's signature Jutsus.
Earth Pike can be paid for either with one Earth and
one colorless, or one Water and one colorless (and
it's a double element Jutsu). Depending on what you
used to pay for this Jutsu you get a different
effect. If you paid for it with one Earth and one
colorless, the user can't receive damage (as in ANY
damage) during the turn. If you paid for it with one
Water and one colorless, you can injure one Ninja
battling against the user. Now, these effects are
good, particularly since the user doesn't have to
necessarily be Kakuzu. In limited, this card can be
good, in constructed, could be better. Try it and
Art: OK, I see the ring.../5
When I first pulled today's card, I thought it was
pretty subpar, but it actually isn't too bad. It can
be paid with either one Earth/Water and one
colorless chakra. If it was paid with an Earth
Chakra, the user takes no damage for the turn. This
is great for saving your powerful ninjas from
getting killed or it can let your chumps live to
chump another turn. If it was paid with a Water
chakra, you injure one ninja battling against the
user. This is a pretty good effect considering the
cost and no requirements, which is good for Water's
early game. Of course, if you pay it with one Water
and one Earth, you get both effects which is a nice
bonus. It's not too hard to use both effects in
Akatsuki decks which have a lot of dual element
cards that feature Earth symbols. It's an all around
decent jutsu that is not overpowering and very
Limited: 2.5/5 Might be good here with its flexible
cost and no requirements.
Constructed: 3/5 Very good for your early game
jutsus for water and decent protection for earth.
Block: 3.5/5 Less good options for jutsu in block
make this even better.
Earth Style: Earth Pike
Hello Pojo faithful. Time for another review. Todays
card is another jutsu from Will of Fire. Its Earth
Style: Earth Pike. So lets dive into what it does.
This jutsu has 2 separate cost and a different
effect depending on what cost you paid to activate
it. The good thing about this jutsu is any ninja can
use it, so no requirements needed. The first cost of
this jutsu is 1 water and a colorless. If you pay
this cost, you get to injure 1 ninja battling
against the user. That sounds good to me. Now for
the second cost, it cost 1 earth and 1 colorless. If
you paid this cost, the user can not recieve any
damage during this turn.
Both are really solid effects, both have uses, and I
don't think you can go wrong with either of them. I
can't say which one I like better because both are
Altogether a solid jutsu. See you tomorrow Pojo
