Next up is another feline by the name of “Chainya (N-1437)”. This cat lineage can be traced back to “Giant Tiger (N-696)” which use to be the king of “Animal” Decks, and while this Ninja is an “Animal” it goes best in a -1/-1 coin Deck.
For a Turn 0 Ninja it has a very respectable 3 Combat, but this Ninja can grow substantially larger since it gets +1 Combat for each coin on all your opponent’s Ninjas. This includes but is not limited to Growth, Clay, Mind, Ghost, Charge, Mirror, Drain, and Flash coins. However, we’ll be looking at the coins that you can control, and that would be Fire’s -1/-1 coin theme.
So how much bit can this cat have? One of the earliest and easiest ways is with Series 24’s “Tobi (N-1377)” to plant a -1/-1 coin and with “Karin (N-1245)” the fun doesn’t have to stop! You can also play Ninjas like “Sasuke Uchiha & Kakashi Hatake (PR-076)” and Series 25’s “The 3rd Hokage (N-1446)” to turn out tons of -1/-1 coins.
Jutsus and Missions can also quickly pump out -1/-1 coins and Turn “Chainya (N-1437)” into a ferocious powerhouse. “Subdue (J-891)” lands a quick injury and -1/-1 for the cheap cost of 1 Fire Chakra, while “Madara’s Eye (J-809)” can trick out two -1/-1 coins as well as potentially draw you 2 cards!
Finally we have Mission cards that can slowly inundate your opponent’s Ninjas with -1/-1 coins like “The Uchiha Clan (M-863)” and “Last Words (M-758)”. Try them out with this fantastic new Ninja from Series 25 and find your own combos.
To combat the growing threat of Uchiha Madara, the Kages from the Villages of Stone, Leaf, Sand, Mist, and Cloud gather together to address this unprecedented force. Series 25 contains loads of new Ninjas, and 5 exceptional SR Missions to commemorate this historic alliance.
But that’s not all! Set 25 contains support for Genjutsu, Taijutsu, Weapon, Cloud, Puppet, Tailed Beast, and Ink Decks. This amazing Set also pushes Decks to combine 3 or more symbols for a whole other level of power!
Make sure to check the “Set 25 – Kage Summit” Thread in the forums for polls and discussion of these great cards.
