Sasuke Uchiha (Childhood)

Today's card is a little kid version of everyone's favorite Emo Ninja. This version of Sasuke has a valid effect, which tends to be a bit of a rarity with Sasuke cards. Rather than go to the Discard Pile after being killed in the Showdown, he goes to your Chakra Area (which in itself is good). When that happens, you mill three cards from any player's deck. Of course, you'd probably pick your opponent's deck. Problem: it doesn't say "Up To 3 Cards". When the effect activates, but your opponent has less than that quantity, you can't do it. *sad*

Still, for an Uchiha/Mill deck, or any Mill deck for that matter. This is a good card. A turn 0 with decent stats? Yes, please!

6/15/10 N-795 Sasuke Uchiha (Childhood) [High Potential]

The next card for our Childhood theme is everyone's favorite emo. Sasuke (Childhood) is similar to yesterday's Naruto (Childhood) in the way that he is lacking one of his trademark characteristics, in this case, Sharingan Eye. Again, I will repeat what I said yesterday; the lack of Sharingan Eye does not make this card worthless, just not as good but good nonetheless. His effect also activates like Naruto's; it goes off when he dies and it requires you to send him to the chakra area. His effect mills 3 cards from your choice of either your deck or your opponent's. While most players will do the former, the latter has some uses for combos, specifically, cards that necro your discarded ninjas (i.e. Anbu Rush).

This card is my favorite of the new Childhood ninjas because of his combo with Furido [Dawn] in a mill deck. Here's Furido's effect:

"During your Mission Phase, you can discard 1 of your Chakras. In that case, put 1 Ninja card, with an Entrance cost of 1 or less, from your Discard Pile, in play."

The way it is worded, you can pay Sasuke as the cost and revive him. In technical terms, you first pay the cost of Furido's effect by killing Sasuke, then the "In that case" part kicks in after Sasuke is discarded, allowing him to be played. After you revive him, send him out to his death and mill 3 cards from your opponent's deck. He'll return to your chakra area due to this, so you can just abuse him with Furido's effect to play him for free and without deploy restrictions. While it is a late game combo, it has proven to be a good one for me.

Sasuke Uchiha (Childhood)-High Potential
So today's review will be on Sasuke Uchiha (Childhood). As his effect states, he does have high potential. As a Sasuke fanboy, I was very pleased getting another child version of Sasuke. We haven't had a young Sasuke since the Itachi/Sasuke platoon. Now down to business.
When he is discarded to the showdown, move him to your chakra, then mill 3 cards from the top of either your or your opponent's deck. The first part of the effect alone is good. Gaining chakra is always nice. The mill aspect is what I believe people really like about him. With Mill seeing more and more play, this is a nice turn 0 ninja for either format.
What is also nice about him is he has solid stats for a turn 0, at 3/0 0/0. He is a basic turn 0. I would like him to be 1/0 but he isn't. What else is great is an underlined thing about him, he can use Chidori and Piercing Chidori. He also works really well with squading into Sasuke & Orochimaru. Overall, not a bad card. I would still run the 4/0 vanilla Sasuke though; unless you run mill
Limited: 3/5
