Beastly Mage

Today's card is a Super Rare version of Sai. This version has Growth, 2 Mental, Anbu, and 1 Hand Cost (which shouldn't matter with the Growth). His effect activates upon being put in play. You get to draw one card for each "Ink" and "Ink Summon" Ninja you have out. This is good if you're running an Ink-Centered deck. He could also work in an Anbu Rush deck that includes Ink Summons (though the only Ink Summons we have right now are the Lions). Since he's Anbu he'll fit into that theme. Only downside with that is that he's a Lightning with Hand Cost (when most of the Anbus are Fire and almost all have no Hand Cost). Could still be useful if played right. Try it and see!
Limited: 2/5

N-1115 Sai [Virtuoso]

Today's card is the worst super rare card in set 21, in my opinion; however, he may become quite good in the future. Originally, his effect was going to be errata'd into drawing for "Brush" ninjas rather than "Ink" ninjas, but Bandai decided to no follow through with it. Since there are no "Ink" ninjas, at best, Sai will draw you three cards if you have three "Ink Summon" ninjas on the field. If it included "Brush" ninjas, he would draw for himself, and he wouldn't be too bad. Right now though, Sai can end up being a useless card if you don't have any Ink Summons out on the field. Additionally, he has hand cost, so you'll lose a card from your hand just by playing him.

Unless Bandai prints new "Ink" ninjas, this card really is not worth running, since you'll have to make room for the Ink Summons in your deck. Hopefully though, we'll get some cool new cards such as an "Ink Summon: Bird" or an "Ink Summon: Rat", or anything similar. Then, Sai would be pretty good as he could net you 4+ cards. But until then, Sai is a pretty mediocre pece of cardboard.

Limited: 1/5 His effect won't trigger in this format and he has hand cost
Unlimited: 1.5/5 There are many better cards to run over him in this format.
Block: 2.25/5 Might be a decent card after rotation if we get more "Ink" support
