Today’s second preview today is “Tenten (N-1426)”. She is a Turn 1 Support Ninja but what makes her special is her ability to fix your Chakra area.
By paying a Earth, Fire, or Wind Chakra you can search your Deck for a non-AMBUSH card of one of the listed Symbols and move it to the Chakra area. This helps in two ways, first it allows you to pay for Jutsu or effects with mixed Chakra cost. Second, it thins your Deck of unwanted cards.
This trashing ability has been seen on cards like “Utakata (N-1353)”, “Kidomaru (N-1465)”, and “Shino Aburame (N-1476)” ; while it places you at risk to Mill Decks it does improve your chances of not missing drops or drawing crucial Missions or Jutsus later in the game when you may no longer want to draw early game Ninjas. This crucial strategy is employed in Deck Building Games and works equally well in the Naruto CCG.
If Tenten isn’t the girl you’re looking for then fret not since Set 25 contains a cycle of this type of Ninja effect for all five of the main Symbols.
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!
