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!

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
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
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
Block : 3/5
