Itachi Uchiha

Today's card is a Super Rare from one of the new Starter Decks. This Fire/Void version of Itachi allows you to negate a Jutsu by moving down your Turn Marker by the same number of the Jutsu's cost. Now, I am guessing that X in this case is equal to the amount of Symbols on the cost. So, if the Jutsu has three Symbols, you move your Turn Marker down by three and negate that Jutsu. In a Void deck this shouldn't be much of a problem. Part of the strategy in that deck is moving your Turn Marker up fast. The effect is Valid, so that's good. For a Starter Deck Super Rare he's pretty good. Try it and see!

Todays card is something special, today we have one of the starter super rares from set 21, itachi uchiha.
itachi has it all, ambush, a 6/4 healthy stats (great stats for a t6) of course genjutsu and most important, a valid effect (remember kids, if you dont have valid, u have no effect injured:)) u can move your turn marker down to negate jutsu cards with the same cost. his wording also means he doesn't have to block to use his effect, so chump blocking is an option if you think ur opponent is holding that hydro pump. in the current format jutsu rarely costs more than 3 and is still played, so worst case your going down 3-4 turns, but with deidara and his parter, itachis cost isnt really a cost at all.
void-this is your turn 6, im of the opinion that a deva path can and should be in void decks, but this is your guy on 6, jutsu protection every turn for no real cost is ridiculous.
fire- i really like itachi, he has sharingan and genjutsu. the cost is a tad more felt than it is in void, but the effect is still just as valued. turn 6 in fire is not a crowded feild, i'm fairly confident that this guy will be a favorite for fire for a while.
water/wind/earth/lightning-he's a solid 1 of, but i doubt many people will go to itachi because hes off color.
overall, i am very impressed with itachi, and i think he will be a force.
limited: NA
constructed: void-5/5 (this is voids best card) fire-4/5 (i am a fan) water-3/5 (still has a solid effect, but the off color means you cant take full advantage of ambush) wind-3/5 (not a lot of competition, might be a place for itachi to shine) earth-3/5 (if the first hokage/kakazu are too rich for your blood, itachi could make a real impact) lightning-2/5 (late game in general isnt a place lightning useually loads its curve, and jiraiya is the turn 6 of turn 6's for lightning. but who knows what a well placed itachi could do.)
art: 5/5 (still a fan)
I'm DIMHWT, and this was the naruto COTD, see you tomorrow ;)
