Welcome to another preview from the upcoming Series 26 Avenger’s Wrath.
This amazing new set brings five unique game mechanics to the Naruto CCG. The second of these is “Desperation.” This keyword captures the shows’ theme of Ninjas pushing themselves beyond their limits when their backs are against the proverbial wall.
In the Naruto CCG, the “Desperation” mechanic finds its home with the Water symbol. A symbol which is synonymous with Ninjas that reach higher states of power like State 2 or Susano’o; but what does it do? Well let’s take a look at an example of a “Desperation” Ninja card.
As you can read, Ninjas with “Desperation” become twice as effective once your opponent has hit you for 5 or more Battle Rewards. In these dark depths of desperation these Ninjas can tap into a new power and use their Activated Abilities up to twice a turn. With “Kisame Hoshigaki (N-1534),” his effect will now allow you do drain your opponent of 2 Chakras each turn!
Series 26 “Desperation” Ninja cards will carve out a new place in Water Decks everywhere so check them out each week as they are revealed exclusively on this site!
