Invasion of Akatsuki

Today's card is another exclusive, and one that'll make a few drool. First off, it's a turn 3 with no hand cost. That's right! No Hand Cost!!!

This mission is fully permanent (as in no time limit) with two effects. First effect: You get to look for a "Rogue Ninja" in your deck and place it in your Chakra Area. Now, that could seem like a waste of a good Ninja... until you read the second effect: All "Rogue Ninja" and "Akatsuki" Ninja cards in your Chakra Area get "Ambush". That means that any version of Itachi, Sound Ninja Sasuke, and so many others get that really nice characteristic. In an Akatsuki deck, this card is great, same for decks that rely heavily on Rogues.


Limited: 3/5 (if you manage to draft the right Ninjas. If not, 1/5)
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3.5/5
Art: Nice!/5

M-625 Invasion of Akatsuki
Yay, a preview card I don't hate!  Let's all do the Kirby Dance!  <('.'<)(^'.'<) (^'.'^) <( '.' )> (^'.'^) (>'.'^)(>'.')>  Come on, it's awesome!
Today's card is a cool Akatsuki support mission, and it's at times like this that I admit I just copy and paste the card, which makes our preview cards that much more work for me...and with that, let's take a look at it's stats, shall we:
Invasion of Akatsuki
T:3 HC:0 Fire/Water
Effect: When this Mission card's effect is applied, search you Deck for 1 "Rogue Ninja" Ninja card and move it to your Chakra area.
Effect: "Akatsuki" and "Rogue Ninja" Ninja cards in your Chakra area get "Ambush".
It's a nice set up for Aka decks, and having no hand cost makes it a 1 for 1, which is nice.  But it also continues to show off the deck's biggest problem: Chakra Generation.  Having all your ninja with ambush is nice, but the deck doesn't build chakra well as it is, so having more reason to not pay with ninjas in chakra is harsh.  I like the card, it's just that Aka decks use too many permanent missions, and other than Formation, there's not a lot to capitalize off of with them.
Limited: X/5 X=playable Aka/Rogues next set
Constructed: 2/5 Not fast enough here
Block 2.5/5 Cool here, but Aka decks already run a lot of perms as is...
Art: They're so close to forming Captain Planet, but nobody has heart.../5


5/7/10 M-625 Invasion of Akatsuki

All right!!! Another exclusive preview!! For once, we got a good card this time, or at least in my opinion. This Fire/Water mission allows you to search out any Rogue Ninja or Akatsuki ninja from you r deck and put it in your Chakra Area. Then all Rogue Ninjas and Akatsuki ninjas get Ambush. All for no hand cost. This card is great if you ask me, since it is sort of like LAR for water and in Fire, it can grab a T4 Sasuke or [GiG].

This card is quite amazing for curving out ninjas on any of your turns at T3 and up:
T3: Haku [Camo]/Sasuke [COoTE] (some people in my area still run him)/Tobi (Chump)
T4: Sasuke [CH]/[StB]/[FB]
T5: Zabuza [BP]/[DOCV]/Kisame [FM]/[CB]/Itachi [Goal]/Hidan
T6: Kakuzu/Itachi [GiG]

I for one, love this card mainly because it has no hand cost. This card is a must for Akatsuki decks, great in Water, and a decent Sasuke/Itachi searcher in Fire.

Limited: 1/5 Good luck pulling this and Hidan/Kakuzu
Constructed: 4.25/5
Block: 4.25/5
