Tuesday's card is Neji Hyuga, Detection By Byakugan. It's a Neji that can control your opponent's Chakra when you need to the most, during the Exchange of Jutsu when you are most likely to play a Jutsu. Did they build up for a Jutsu to ruin your fun? You can discard a Chkra to ruin their day and they can't really do much about it unless they have Power of the Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit in their deck or something that allows them to charge Chakra during Exchange of Jutsu. This Neji can be the perfect addition to the Chakra Control deck that runs Kisame, Chakra Absorption and Yoroi among other things. Plus, it's a Neji, which everyone likes. This is definitely worth a try, especially in a Taijutsu or Byakugan deck.

Limited: 4/5

Beastly Mage

Neji Hyuga [Detection by Byakugan]

Another super rare for you today. This one doesn't have a valid effect, but a good one still. By discarding chakras from your side, you can discard the same number of chakras from your opponent's side. If you need chakra for jutsus, this won't be too good, but it can still be good for Chakra Control decks among others. He's also got the usual stats for a Neji, so he's pretty good in that sense too.

This SR Neji has cool art and a cool effect. You discard some chakra, and so does your opponent. Shikamaru [Formation] will be making sure that your R&R Neji can't protect itself from Turn 2s and under, but Shikamaru can't do anything about this Neji's ability, making it nice if you can discard some growth/random Chakra to kill your opponent's Vortex/Trigram fuel. All in all it's a very solid card, not broken but worthy of SR status.

In limited, a single leaf hurricane can screw you hard. Also, 3/0 / 3/0 stats help a lot more in limited than constructed, I've noticed. This guy is a star.

Byakuya Kuchiki

Neji Hyuga[Detection By Byakugan]

Today we are looking at the second Super Rare for our Super Rare week. It's no other than Neji Hyuga. Neji is pretty much the same as all of his other versions. He has stats of 3/0 in both healthy and injured status. He's also a turn 2, but he also growth and the normal Neji traits. This Neji makes Super Rare status like most other Super Rares do by his effect. His effect allows you to discard as many chakras as you want to discard the same number from your opponent during the exchange of Jutsu. This effect is very, very solid it can allow you to get rid of your opponent's chakra to prevent them from using a Jutsu. The only bad thing with the effect really is it's not valid, and it also might prevent you from using Jutsu's. Either way, it's good protection from your opponent. This Neji will see play in a lot of decks especially in Tempo where tempo decks don't rely on chakra as much as other decks do.
Overall, I think this Neji is very good, and might be over looked by some people, but the ability to dump chakra outside of Yoroi and Kisame is pretty sweet. This also gives Earth a nice push as well.

My Ratings:

Constructed: 4/5

Limited: 3/5
