The First Hokage

This card is one that makes the Reward Flip Deck shine. First effect makes it possible to disrupt your opponent's strategy late-game. When he comes to play, your opponent skips the Mission Phase. No Mission Phase during your opponent's turn = No Organization Phase. This could make it possible for a quicker victory. The second effect is Valid, and gives your opponent's Ninja and Mission cards (in-hand) +1 Entrance Cost for each of your opponent's face-up Battle Rewards. So, that means that if you have been able to flip 9 Rewards, your opponent will have a bit of trouble putting a few cards in play. Now, there are ways to put this guy in play earlier, and I think you know what Jutsu I'm talking about. Try it and see!

2/28/10 N-894 The First Hokage [The Creator]
Today's card is one of the more mediocre super rares from set 18. His previous incarnation, [Supremacy] from set 17, overshadows this card in nearly every way. The first effect for [The Creator] is rather nice; making your opponent miss their mission phase is crucial and can lead to a game win if played right. His second effect, on the other hand, is nearly useless. By turn 6, your opponent probably won't have too much trouble playing missions/clients with higher entrance costs since most of the most played ones don't go past turn 3. Additionally, most Battle Reward flipping decks will turning face up BRs face down again with cards like set 18 Deidara and Asuma. 
Ironically, this card was built to help BR flipping decks, but [Supremacy] helps these decks better, even though it was released before the deck type was created. [Supremacy] allows the player to return two of your opponent's BRs to your hand, but with flipping, you can see what you are getting, so you can take what you need for the moment; he basically adds two cards two your hand while making it more difficult for your opponent to win.
The only way that this card can trump [Supremacy] is if you bring it out early game with "Exposing The Hideout" so you can do early game shutdowns. Otherwise, run [Supremacy].
Limited: 2/5
Unlimited: 2/5
Block: 3/5
Trivia: This is the first time we get a First Hokage in a set without a Second Hokage counterpart.
