Kakashi Hatake (Boyhood)

Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans. Today's card is Kakashi (Boyhood). This version of Kakashi allows you to recover one Chidori card from either your Chakra or Discard areas whenever he attacks. This is just great in constructed, where you can simply use and abuse this effect. Then, there's the other effect. It gives +1/+1 to your Rin and Obito Ninjas. That's just great, since they can pump him up too. Another way to bring the pain in constructed. He's also good in limited, since he is a pretty strong Ninja at turn 4. He's also got great characteristics (Growth included). If you manage to get a couple of these, go for it!


Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: Kakashi is always a win!/5

N-709 Kakashi Hatake (Boyhood) [NEW TECHNIQUE]

Man, what a weird weekend it was...lots of adventure, mocking of new people, and hey look, there's a new vid up on my youtube channel with Password about Fire in the meta today! I bet your friends would think you were just super cool if you watched it, rated it, and subscribed! Your friends totally told me that!

It's the start of Gaiden week, and today's card is a pretty big one in the meta now, Kakashi (Jailbait), is one of the more sought after SRs of this set. I like this card myself (and if any of you have one or more for trade, I'm looking for it!), so let's take a look at it's stats, shall we:

T4 HC0 Fire
Leaf | Male | Jonin | Sharingan Eye | Growth | Mental Power: 2 | Name: Kakashi Hatake
5/3 3/1 CA: Genjutsu/Weapon
Set 16: Super Rare

This card is hot! Leaf is nice for Miniherits, Male is...not bad, Jonin gives him access to all the jutsu that make this card sexy, with Sharingan Eye added to finish off his access to Fire's best jutsu. But the thing I love is growth, which means that if you run the T0 Kid Kashi, on T4 you can growth into this beast and still play a ninja, which is hardcore. Imagine doing that with both your Kakashi and Sasuke...what a day...ahem. Being a 5/3 on T4 is pretty nice as well, giving this ninja options on where you want to put it in the team. Not Sasuke good, but way better injured stats. But his drop in mental does hurt a bit; it's not going to kill you, as he's above the mental power: 1 barrier that most cards impose, but it's still not as good as he was a turn later. As for having name: Kakashi, that's pretty useful, as without it, he couldn't play his signature jutsu. Speaking of which, let's check out this card's effect, shall we:

When this Ninja is sent out to Attack, you can move 1 "Chidori" Jutsu card from your Chakra area or your Discard Pile to your hand.
Valid: Your "Obito Uchiha" and/or "Rin" get +1/+1.

Infinichidori? That's what this reads to me. It's like mastery that just loves one jutsu card. Having a chain of one in discard used to pay for one in chakra is just how fun works, and it's quite possible with all the cycling Fire has. And getting a chidori into discard isn't hard with Tobi, giving you an easy discard for him as well. The pumping of Obito/Rin is kind of nice, but most of the time, it won't be a big issue. Obito might be in your build (more on him later), but Rin won't be seeing play, so you're only really going to have to worry about one pump.

In constructed with Sasuke BTL, this guy is his own deck, especially combined with Sharingan of Tears. In block, this card is still great when used with the new Chidori or even the old one. Even drafting this guy wouldn't be bad, as he's a strong ninja who's just decent to have in deck. I'm a big fan of him.

Limited: 3/5 Big beat stick with Sharingan
Constructed: 4.25/5 Makes Freedori live again!
Block: 3.75/5 Very strong here, but less broken combos...
Art: It has been argued that this card should not have Sharingan Eye due to the point where the picture comes from. I am glad he has it, because he is a hero/5
