Mayur V.

  We received two Sais in this set, one being a starter exclusive, and the other being a rare. Today, we are reviewing the rare version of Sai.

This version of Sai has Mastery, which separates it from the other two Sais. However, to compensate for that fact, he also has one less support than the other two. Because of this, his stats come out to being a 4/2, 2/2, which does not seem very good for a turn 4 ninja.

To be honest, I don't like this card. For one thing, dropping a 4/2 ninja on turn 4 is not a very strong play, considering 4/2 is a stat easily reachable on turn 3. Also, his effect, while decent, doesn't protect against Jutsus, which generally the biggest threats to a ninja.

The major reason why I don't like this card is that, in a lightning deck, he has competition from a vastly superior card, the Fourth Hokage (Younger Days). The fourth hokage has: better stats, two much better effects, Jonin, Oil CA, Mastery, and can use Rasengan. Considering every other element has better options on turn 4, this card would only see play in a lightning deck anyway. However, the fourth hokage is superior to this card in every way.

Constructed: 1.5/5 <---- Maybe has uses in a Sai-oriented deck, but other then that, it is outclassed by the Fourth Hokage. If you can't get the Fourth Hokage, I would suggest the starter deck version over this card, simply because it has three support.

Limited: 2/5 <---- A little bit better here, due to his effect. However, he is still understated for his turn.
