Beastly Mage


Today's card is [Origami Angel]. This version of Konan, which is the strongest version so far, has some pretty impressive stats. Besides 2 Mental Power, Ambush, 5/4 - 0/3 (worth the Hand Cost) it also has a Hand Control-Related effect. As long as your opponent has less cards in their hand than you every Ninja opposing Konan's team gets -2/-2. For a team this can be pretty brutal. Remember that the totals add up, and sometimes a decrease like this can make Outstanding Victories come up like crazy. Too bad the effect isn't Valid, though it's still good. In a Female Deck she'll fit in quite well, given that she's a Wind Ninja (most Female Decks have more Wind than Earth). Save for her not having a Rank (which would only affect her in Unlimited) or Void (which would make her Hand Cost more payable) she's pretty good. Try it and see!


Limited: 1.5/5
Constructed: 2.5/5

Art: Keep her away from the Oil.../5


N-1329 Konan [Origami Angel]

When Konan was first released in the card game, everyone complained that she was under-powered for being an Akatsuki member. Not anymore. Konan finally has made it to the big leagues of heavy-hitting late game ninjas with quite a nice debut. She's now 5/4 healthy which is pretty decent support and she also has Ambush which greatly increases her playability has a high drop. Her effect is a very powerful one, in my opinion, because the Wind player should always have the larger hand. Best case scenario, you're dropping your opponent's team power down by 6. If you think about it, Konan could be considered a 7/6 ninja since she will be decreasing at least one ninja's power when she is opposed. the question is whether she will be played over Sasori [Creating the Masterpiece] or not. Although I do not think she is better, she is definitely playable and a good alternative to Sasori.

Limited: 3/5 A little harder to get her effect, but devastating if you do
Unlimited: 2.75/5
Block: 3.5/5

[Origami Angel]
At Pojo, we have received an interesting spread of previews this week. Unfortunately, today is probably my least favorite. It's another Konan! Will our paper angel ever really see play in a meta format? We have yet to see, and this Konan is no exception. With an effect that is better suited to earth, Konan is just lackluster at best. She's a turn 5 that can potentially give your opponent's team a -6-6 as long as you have more cards in hand. The thing is, how often are you stockpiling cards in your hand on turn 5, even in wind? She's one of the few wind ninja with ambush, so that's a plus, but she's still not all that impressive. Even worse still, she's not valid, so she becomes a target for Chidori, Fireball, Lariat, etc., so that they can get their team power back. She's competing with Kurenai for the turn 5 slot, and Kurenai can swing a jutsu chain in your favor. Even in the Kimono deck she'd be out of place so I'm not even sure what to make of her, if anything at all. Oh, here's and idea. You can pretend to be Konan by flinging this card at your opponents and giving them third degree paper cuts. Match won.
Limited: 3/5 (A beatstick is still useful in a draft.)
Unlimited: 1/5
Block: 1.5/5 (If this effect was printed on a turn 2 or 3 earth ninja, it might be useful. Oh well.)
