Beastly Mage

Neji Hyuga

Today's card is a pretty darn awesome version of Neji. He's a turn 4 Jonin with 1 Hand Cost (a bit odd for that turn) who has two effects that give Byakugan Hand Control a good boost. During the Exchange of Jutsu, you can give one damage to an opposing Ninja. The only way your opponent can cancel this if a card is discarded. This effect is not Valid, but his second one is: your opponent's hand size is reduced by 1. If you've seen the other Hyugas in this set then you know that they all have the hand reduction effect. Making your opponent discard a card to conserve a Ninja when the hand itself is getting limited can be painful unless there's some way to counter this. In the right deck, you'll probably get to clean out your opponent's hand with the Hyugas.

In Limited he could be good (though Hand Cost kinda tones him down). In Constructed he can be a pain for your opponent in a Hyuga Hand Control Deck. Try it and see!


Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3.5/5

Neji Hyuga 1037:
In many ways, this is the Neji that everyone has been waiting for. Decent turn, decent stats for the turn, a handy effect, and passive-but-not-overbearing effect, and with Growth to boot. This guy will definitely see play in Hand Control Earth.
Limited: 3.5/5 Granted you get plenty of Earth in your pulls/picks.
Unlimited: 2.5/5 I like [Seeing Through the Wall] still. Call it personal bias, if you will.
Block: 4/5 Definitely a tank, especially growthing into him on Turn 4 and following up with any Turn 4 Ninja.
