Welcome to another preview from the upcoming Series 25 “Kage Summit”.
Our last card today is the mentor to Team 7, “Kakashi Hatake (N-1444)”. This Turn 5 “Jonin” Ninja has both the Fire & Lightning symbols will solid stats (6/3 & 3/2) that Naruto CCG players are use to. It’s Kakashi’s effect that is new to players and adds another piece to the -1/-1 Coin Deck.
The first of Kakashi is a triggered effect at the start of each of your turns, and holds down one of your opponent’s Ninjas with a -1/-1 coin if you control another Fire Ninjas, making it more difficult for your opponent to attack back the longer the game progresses.
The second effect triggered whenever one of your other Ninjas is injured. If you control another Lightning Ninja, that injured Ninja becomes a bit stronger by receiving a +1/+1 coin from Kakashi’s effect. And since the injury doesn’t have to be due to the showdown numerous combos can ensue (ex: “Jugo (N-1191)” or “The 6th Hokage (N-1383)”).
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!
