2-Anbu [Rising Threat]/[Hidden Threat]

Today we'll take a look at two cards that made quite an impact in 2011. Both of these cards went through Erratas, restrictions, and finally got banned. Let's take a look at them, shall we?

[Rising Threat] is a T0 Leaf, while [Hidden Threat] is a T1 Mist. Both are Anbu-class/Fire males, and both have a similar effect. When you have them in your hand, you can put them in play, and that wouldn't count as a Deployment. For those familiar with the World Mission cards, these two made a good combination with World of Fire, which allows you to mill in exchange for the Blade Coins on the Mission. The other reason for this is a little something right before the effect text: Non-Unique. The potential for swarming was set! They also have different effects in the second part. When [Rising Threat] is put in play all of your Anbu Ninjas (him included) get +1/+1, while [Hidden Threat] protects all of your Anbu Ninjas (him included) from damage this turn. Not only could you swarm with them, there was a chance you could also rush with them as well. Originally, they were only called "Anbu" until an Errata changed their name to include their respective Villages, meaning you could have six out rather than just three. With the Swarm/Mill/Rush tactics being used in both Block and Unlimited, it was discovered just how much of an exaggeration in simplicity these two guys were.

That's why they're now blocked!

They also fit into pretty much any deck that could use them. Void loved them because of its need for Sacrifice material Ninjas. All other decks liked them because having Early-Turn hitters is always good. But, it was in Fire/Anbu/Mill that these guys made their impact.


Since they're now blocked, I'll only rate them in all formats (before the name Errata - after the name Errata) before the Blocking.

Limited: 3/5 - 3.5/5
Unlimited: 3.5/5 - 4/5
Block: 3.5/5 - 4/5

But the art never changes on both!

Art: Silent but deadly.../5

Had this ranked at #1 on his Top 10 List.
