Beastly Mage

Raiga Kurosuki


Today's card is a doozy. If the victory or reward are outstanding, you get to discard every Ninja in your opponent's Chakra Area. That can be good late game, with a lot of your opponent's Chakra being composed of Ninjas that have been sent there by growth effects. This is basically one heck of a Chakra Control card. The second effect, though a bit situational, is also good. When Ranmaru is in play he gets +2/+2. If Ranmaru is on his team, then you got one fearsome Ninja.

Raiga Kurosuki [Funeral of the Living]


Weʼre ending our week with a very cool rogue ninja. You should not run this card unless youʼre planning on comboing it with Ranmaru. Ranmaruʼs effect allows you to play Raiga on turn 4, and Raigiaʼs effect allows him to become a 7/4, 5/3 when Ranmaruʼs in play. That combo alone is beastly. His second effect says if he wins an Outstanding BR/Victory, you can discard every ninja card in both players chakra.


Getting this effect to go through once is amazing. Most of the time, when people charge for missions, they usually charge a ninja as they want to save their jutsus for future use. And donʼt forget about ninjas that are chakra due to growth. Raiga gets rid of them with a simple Outstanding BR/Victory. You could definitely combo this card with the client Emi (whoʼs also on element). Having his effect go through once isnʼt game breaking but it does tilt the game in your favor. Try it out and see if it works for you.


Rating 3.8/5

Raiga (FOTL) :

Good card for mono-water decks which should soon be tier 1. This card would only be great if comboed with Ranmaru.

Limited: 4/5

Constructed: 4/5

The First Hokage

Raiga[Funeral of the Living]


This entire week we will be continuing to look at Lineage of the Legends, the newest set of Narutothreleased August 29th. Today, we will be looking at Raiga[Funeral of the Living].

He’s a turn 5 with 1 hand cost water ninja. Doesn’t Water have enough turn 5’s? He has a power of 5/2 and an injured of 3/1. He follows suit in winning an outstanding victory or outstanding battle reward to get his effect to go that gets rid of every ninja in your opponent’s chakra area. His other effect allows Raiga to get +2/+2 while you have Ranmaru on the field. Basically, if you can save Ranmaru, Raiga and him are a deadly team. Chakra control could be a great deck type as well. He also carries the Jonin rank to make able to use amazing Water Jutsus.


Overall, I think he is solid, but only in the right deck.


Constructed: 3.75/5

Limited: 4/5
