Void and Water beat lightning... Void is the cheapest deck i've ever seen, the only card that's over 3 dollars is almighty push. Water people just completly disregard because EoTS is gone? lol, what a joke. The reason these two decks beat lightning. They have sustain, they aren't flashy early game but late game they become almost impossible to overcome. Lightning is fast but you really won't get past 6 BRs against either of these decks if built/played correctly. I think this format is very balanced and people just need something to Q.Q about. It's time to duct tape the mouth shut and accept that the format is fair and just play.
I know this is a hard concept for most players to grasp and it will likely change in a set or two but for now naruto is a balanced card game for the first time in years.
