Beastly Mage

The Fourth Hokage

Today's card is one that's sure to please many a Lightning fan.This version of the Fourth allows you to mark one of your opponent's Ninjas for later for the price of two Chakras (any color will do). What happens after that? During the EoJ you can place this guy in any team you control. If that team's battling at least one Ninja with a Mark Coin then that Ninja (or those Ninjas) get(s) one damage.It's a pretty strong effect, and very good for both Limited and Constructed formats. Both effects are valid, and he's also got some great stats (plus a double combat attribute of Oil and Weapon). If you run Lightning he's a good choice. Try it and see!


Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 5/5

N-712 The 4th Hokage [SPACE NINJUTSU]

Hey there, this might be a bit short as I'm kind of sleepy. My fault, your loss. But our first web match should be up by Fri/Sat. Look forward to it!

Today's card is The 4th Hokage, and it's still pretty cool. But as we know, you have to be beastly to carry that title, so let's check out it's stats, shall we:

T5 HC1 Lightning
Leaf l Male l Satoosa l Mental Power: 2
5/3 6/4 CA: Oil
Set 16: Super Rare

Man, what a beast! Nice stats on both injured and healthy, along with two mental protecting him from all the crazy new mental effects. It's good to see some mental on a lightning card, and having the Satoosa rank, while not really useful, is always good to have. Oil can be cool, I like it, and it helps out at toads. But now let's check out it's effect, shall we:

Valid: During your Mission Phase, you can discard 2 of your Chakras. In that case, place a Ninja Blade coin symbolizing a "Mark" coin on 1 of your opponent's Ninja.
Valid: During the Exchange of Jutsu, you can place this Ninja in any of your Battling Teams in any position. In that case, if there are 1 or more Ninja with a "Mark" coin in the opposing Team, give 1 Damage to those Ninjas.

It's like some weird reverse Deidara effect. I myself don't like paying for an effect before I get some reward off of it, but this isn't a bad effect seeing as lightning has gotten better and better at building chakra. So honestly, it's probably going to go off a lot. But it also puts a big target on The 4th, but I guess he had that before. I honestly like the older 4th (Younger Days), but this card does curve better with lightning's current ninja. So really, it's your choice on ninja.

Limited: 2/5 Hard to draft for a hand cost
Constructed: 3/5 Good here, but not the best to me
Block: 3/5 Same as in constructed
Art: Like a sexy lion gymnast, the 4th leaps around, just being all sexy and lion like/5


2/18 N-712 The Fourth Hokage

Today's card is one of the best supers in the new set and in the game most likely.

Let's take same time to have an overview of the card...

Name: The Fourth Hokage
EC: 5 HC: 1
Leaf | Jonin | Male | Mental Power:2
Weapon/Oil Combat Attribute
Healthy: 5/3 Injured: 6/4
The Fourth Hokage is a pretty game name to have since you have access to most of the devastating Rasengan jutsus. Another interesting thing about his name is that he doesn't have the (Younger Days) tag under it even though its Jonin Minato but I'm not going to complain since it not having Satoosa means he's a lower dop. For a turn 5 ninja, this guy has beastly stats that are even better when injured. Weapon and Oil attributes are also pretty good, but mainly Oil useful.

Now let's view his effect:
[Space Ninjutsu]

Valid: During your Mission Phase, discard 2 of your chakras. In that case, place one "Mark" coin on one of your oppnent's ninjas.

Valid: During the EoJ, you can place him into one of your other battling teams. In that case, give one damage to all ninjas with a mark coin battling against him.

This guy has been dubbed [Plastic Warrior] since both of his effects seem to mimic those of the [Lifeless Warrior] Ninjas and Deaidara [Plastic Arts], however, I'm not sure about the former. It may seem that he can be thrown into teams like (Younger Days) but I don't think he can just quite... the wording says put him in another of your battling teams, meaning has to be battling in another already and it does not say he can be thrown on while being on stand-by. A good effect still, nonetheless.

All in all, this card is another brick in Lightning's wall. The only thing now is to decide whether to run him or [Lightning Speed]

Limited: 3.75/5 His effect requires colorless chakra which helps and he's a beat stick
Constructed: 4.5/5 He's a beast in any Lightning deck
Block: 4.5/5 block hardly effects him
