M-854 Genjutsu Adept

Remember that Manma card from last block set? He pretty much had this effect, but it only affected ninjas with an EC of one or less. This mission is pretty much the same, but it now it hits anyone battling against the user instead. Menma didn't see much play because his effect didn't really hit many ninjas, and he had very lackluster stats. This mission can hit pretty much any ninja, bar the handful of Genjutsu ninjas Fire and Wind has, so it could easily create a -4 for your opponent's larger teams. Additionally, it gives the user Genjutsu, so it provides protection against the effect for the user if your opponent uses it on you. Keep in mind that the added effect text is not valid, so you'll need to keep its target healthy. Additionally, it's susceptible to Hina, which is the unfortunate bane of PErmanent missions.

Will this card see play? Possibly. Obviously, it isn't terribly good against Fire/Wind, but it can still do early damage to those decks since most of the highly played ninjas with genjutsu are EC:4+. Since it has EC:1, you can overpower your opponent's teams early game. Additionally, if you a attach a second one of these to another of your ninjas, you can cripple any 2+ ninja team your opponent has. It's an all-around decent card. Fortunately, it has Menma's effect rather than Yakumo's, so it isn't terribly broken, but it still might cause a headache for your opponent. While it will not directly win you a game, it can force your opponent to make the first play in a jutsu chain which may indirectly win you the game if you have the counters to your opponent's cards.

Beastly Mage

Genjutsu Adept

This is one Mission that can be a good way of supporting a Genjutsu deck. It's a Permanent Mission that targets one Ninja (though it's not attached), and gives that Ninja the "Genjutsu" Combat Attribute. Also, the Ninja will get an effect that will lower the Support of all opposing non-Genjutsu Ninjas by 2. Note that there's no Entry Cost requirement. If you're running a Genjutsu deck, this card helps when you have a Ninja that doesn't quite fit in (due to Combat Attribute mostly). It can also help boost your chances at winning a battle. It might just give you that slight edge you need for a Victory.

In Limited it might help (I actually see this running better in that format). In the Constructed formats it could make good sideboard material. Try it and see!
