Pojo's Naruto Card of the Day
Naruto Message Board you can:
Trade Cards (with an eBay type rating system), talk about
discuss upcoming and past tourneys, converse on
the anime &
based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
Today's card is a negation Jutsu. The requirement
for this one is that the PRINTED entrance cost be of
2 or more. Pretty simple in that area. For two Wind
or two Fire you can negate and discard a Jutsu being
used. Once again, simplicity. Then comes the bonus:
if that Jutsu has two or more specific symbols (like
two Fire, two Water, or something like that), then
the user of that Jutsu gets -2/-2 during the turn.
That's a nice addition to a negation Jutsu. Pretty
good in Limited, and in Constructed/Block as well.
Try it and see!

It's now the middle of the week Pojo faithful and
today we have another review for you. Today's card
is my favorite for the week by far. It is a handy
jutsu that is catching a lot of tournament play, the
all mighty Labyrinth. So dive into this spectacle
and see what makes it so magical.
Labyrinth is an outstanding card. I love Labyrinth.
David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly would agree. This
jutsu from Will of Fire is catching more and more
competitive play, and for good reason. Let's review
what it does.
Labyrinth is a dual-element jutsu of fire and wind.
Has a cost of either 2 wind chakra or 2 fire chakra.
Requirements are a printed cost of 2 or more. It
targets 1 jutsu being played. Now for the effect,
negate and discard the target. Then, if the target's
cost has 2 or more specific symbols, the target's
user gets -2/-2 during the turn.
So now let's break this down. The cost is rather
easy to pay. You are going to be playing either
monowind, monofire, or the most common seen deck;
fire/wind. By running one of these three decks, the
chakra cost is easy to pay. To people saying what
about medical or female decks, well, I consider
those to be monowind. The requirement is
understandable. Yes, I know you can't negate a jutsu
on turn 0 or 1 with this like you can with Sharingan
Eye. This is still the better negator. I would
probably run this over Counter also, which sounds
crazy to female players; but I feel this card is a
little more solid. It has the same requirements turn
count, you just dont need the female aspect. Now for
the effect, it is a negation tool. It is better than
Sharingan Eye and Visual Jutsu in my opinion because
of the second ability. If that jutsu your opponent
trys to cast has 2 or more specific symbols, that
ninja gets -2/-2 for the turn. This will normally
lead to you winning the victory, sometimes even an
outstanding victory. Here is an example, your
opponent sends out Kakashi Hatake (Boyhood) and cast
8 Trigrams. You respond with Labyrinth. 8 Trigrams
is negated and discarded. Then, Kakashi gets -2/-2
because 8 Trigrams has a specific symbol cost of 2
fire chakra. Sounds good to me. It does more than
Sharingan Eye and Visual Jutsu usually just doesn't
get the job done.
This is just one example of why this card is seeing
more play. This card, like Hinata Hyuga (Student),
is one of many I saw in about 90% of the decks at
Shonen Jump Championship Atlanta. So, going into the
SJC season leading into Nationals, expect to be
caught in the Labyrinth.
I hope you enjoyed this review
See you tomorrow Pojo faithful
