Jiraiya and The 4th Hokage

Today's card is one more Tin Promo Squad Card. Jiraiya and the Fourth allow you to turn every single card in your opponent's Chakra Area into a Lightning Card. That means that if you're battling a Watter Deck, your opponent got zapped. Even if the card are dual-colored, that means nothing. The ONLY symbol they're gonna have IS Lightning. Unless you're battling a Lightning Deck or some deck that relies on Colorless-Cost Jutsus, this card is a good backup plan for your Reinforcement Deck. The effect is not valid, but the Injured stats make up for that. Trust me, this card has a few people happy right now.

PR-065 Jiraiya & The 4th Hokage [Teacher And Leader]

Today's card is another one of the three "Untouchable" tin previews. Personally, I have mixed feelings about this squad. First off, it is the first squad with hand cost, which is pretty heavy considering every Fourth Hokage and Jiraiya have hand cost of their own. This makes the squad a five card requirement, possibly four with Fourth Hokage (Younger Days). Additionally, Jiraiya and the Fourth are very powerful cards on their own, so it is hard giving up two of your most powerful ninjas to get this squad, although it isn't too bad if you squad it off of Jiraiya (Childhood) or Fourth Hokage (Childhood) (albeit, no one uses the former).

While it is hard to pull off, it has one of the most satisfying effects in the game. It makes all of your opponent's chakras have the lightning symbol and only lightning. This can easily shutdown nearly every jutsu your opponent might have. While this is all good, it has a few downsides. First off, if it is not "Valid", which is a shame since it  has such nice injured stats. The second is the obvious effect that it is practically useless in mirror matches. The final con is that Sakon [Cursed Twins] easily shuts down this effect, as well as Asuma [Will of Fire], but the former is easily splashed sideboard material.

All in all, this is a pricey squad with an interesting effect. It's sort of like the new Kakuzu (Soul Form) -- an expensive card, but with a possibly game sealing effect. Knowing when to play the card is the most important thing you'll need to know.
