Itachi Uchiha

Today's card is a pretty good version of Itachi that's not Akatsuki but Leaf. Test of Power has two Valid effects. The first one makes it so your opponent has to play with the hand revealed. So, you're seeing whatever your opponent has in store for you. This allows you to use the second effect. If your opponent has two or more cards of the same type (Ninja, Mission, Client, Jutsu) in the hand then he gets a third Valid effect, which allows Itachi to win you a Battle Reward whenever he scores any sort of Victory. The first effect can be used anywhere, but some would say that the second effect is somewhat situational. Unless you're running a Hand Control deck you'll probably kick off the second effect a lot. This card is good in Constructed, and in Limited he could be good even with the hand cost. Notice he's got Ambush and Anbu in the characteristics. He could fit into one deck that promised to be fun in the future.


Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3.5/5

N -1058 Itachi Uchiha [Test Of Power]

Today's card is my favorite Itachi in the current format for many reasons. For starters, he is Leaf rather than Akatsuki, so he will not mess up a late game Succeeded Will Of Fire. He also has Anbu, so he is one of the best late game options for the future Anbu decks when set 21 is released. Additionally, he has Ambush, which is always a nice thing to have. Making your opponent play with a revealed hand (and for no cost to boot) can easily turn the game in your favor, since you know all the tricks up their sleeve. His secondary effect, which is not terribly hard to pull off, since your opponent should be holding on to at least two jutsus late game, makes Itachi almost like a Kakashi Hatake [Early Settlement] 2.0.

The only competition this card has right now is Itachi Uchiha [Goal], who is also a powerful T5 ninja. If you are running SWOF, I would suggest [Test Of Power], but otherwise, either Itachi is fine, just a matter of preference. In the future, however, this Itachi will see a lot of competition with the new Itachis' in set 21.

Limited: 3.5/5
Constructed: 3.75/5
Block: 4.25/5
