Beastly Mage

The First Hokage [Supremacy]

This card is pretty good. Its first effect activates upon deployment. You can move up to two of your opponent's Battle Rewards to your hand. This can turn the tide of the game in a pinch, like when you need to get some cards back, or just diminish the chance of your opponent winning. The second effect (Valid) is one that could help replenish your deck. During your Mission Phase you can move up to four cards in your Discard Pile to the bottom of your Deck in any order. Good sideboard material when facing a Mill Deck, or just to recover stuff you need. In Limited he's good if you manage to hold off until turn 6. In Constructed and Block he's way better. The Mastery part also helps. Try it and see!


Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3.5/5
Art: I got your forest right here!/5


Number eight on the list is one of Earth's biggest threats, The First Hokage [Supremacy]. Returning two of your opponent's Battle Rewards to your hand is very powerful, as it not only gives you hand advantage, but also helps you stall out your opponent. His second effect even allows you to stall out even more by returning 4 cards from your discard pile to the bottom of your deck every turn. This especially useful in Unlimited, where Mill is rather threatening. On top of all of this, he has Mastery which allows him to reuse Earth's deadly Tree jutsus he has access to.

He is a good choice for any Earth deck, and even better for Battle Reward flip decks, as you will get to see the cards you take. He's an all around powerful card.

Limited: 3.75/5 If you pulled this in limited, you best try to run him.
Unlimited: 4.5/5
Block: 4.75/5


#8 - The First Hokage n825:

This guy first saw serious play in the Respective Dreams deck as the end game for the end-all-be-all control deck type in its meta. He now has a home in the BR Flip deck that was conspired with Set 18, so that you have a better idea of what he's picking up. Even to this day, several months after the release of the BR Flip strategy, he shines as the end game of one of the strongest decks.

In limited, this Ninja can turn the tide of a game you are about to lose and prevents you from decking out, so he's not bad at all there. Even in unlimited, he is the best First Hokage iteration and even the best Turn 6 Ninja Earth has, especially with all of his jutsus. In the Block format, he is the Big Earth Ninja that comes down and controls the field with BR advantage, anti-mill and Mastery.

Limited: 3.5/5
Unlimited: 4/5
Block: 4/5
