Neji Hyuga and Hizashi Hyuga

This card in action is pretty good. Even though the free jutsu effect is not valid the mission protection effect is. A bit like a Freedori, but for Hyuga decks. Small problem with this card: it's only a Genin (since Hizashi has no rank) even though it's a platoon. In limited, it's good, but better in constructed. Try it and see.


Limited: 2/5

Neji Hyuga & Hizashi Hyuga [Decoy of the Main Branch]

Today we have an awesome platoon from The Chosen. This card has one of the best combat values for a turn 5 ninja. No hand cost is also a plus. Obviously this card is meant for a deck based around Byakugan. The ability to use 8 Trigram Palm Rotations for free is great. The other jutsu, Gentle Fist Style: 8 Trigrams 64 Palm, should not be played. The ability to be unaffected by missions isnʼt that useful at this stage in the game. The lack of Jonin stats is a downside but then again, Earth and Wind never had many jutsus that relied on Jonin stats. A funny situation would be to send this ninja out when your opponent uses Naruto vs Sasuke because of the fact that this platoon doesnʼt have a secondary rank.

So besides the obvious fact that this card goes into Byakugan Decks, there is another use for this card that isnʼt so obvious. And that is a deck based around platoons. Wind and Earth have some fierce platoons such as this card, Ino/Inochi, and Shikamaru/Temari. I believe it is possible to make a deck comprised of mostly ninjas and platoons and a few key missions. I wonʼt go into major detail but the centerpiece around the platoon deck would be Skillful Tactics M-US018. And if such a deck does become top tier, this card would have a place right into it.

This card goes right into a Byakugan deck. In any other deck, you need to debate about whether you want him in. On one hand, he has great stats. On the other, he doesnʼt have an effect that would help anything other than Byakugan decks. Overall, this is a good card with some potential for future use.

Rating: 3.5/5
