No special techniques, let alone jutsus (they're not ninjas) I hope we don't get something silly and made up just to fill up the space, I would much rather see new Block format valid Pain cards...
I think the samurai will be a bit more impressive than that. They'll be able to incorporate a few new "Ninjas", and a plethora of new Weapon Jutsus; they can focus chi into their swords, making for powerful weapon tricks. If they work in some synergy stuff for them, since they are more squad-oriented than individual ninjas, maybe the Anbu tricks of Non-unique or one deploys another, they could be pretty good. They've been seen fighting Zetsus, and they were efficient there (I know, that isn't where we are, but they aren't terrible; they were just fighting Sasuke, who was cheesing, at the time, same as if he attacked "regular" Leaf Village shinobi). Mifune could be pretty good, all by himself. I don't expect anything as broken as the original Sick (Six) Samuarai, from Yugioh!, but I do see some potential, nonetheless.
I rather hope that they go back, and cross the Void theme with the old Samurai card theme; those two cards looked cool, and I think it would be nifty if they could differentiate them, just for kicks. It should keep Void competitive, though it will need another element, probably Earth, to keep it afloat.
