Twilight Ninja Kagen

 

As I mentioned yesterday, Twilight Ninja Kagen piqued my interest because of his low level. Being a level 1 Ninja begs to be targeted by Ninjitsu Art of Duplication. So, of course Konami had to go and give him 0 ATK and no flip effect or even a worthwhile main effect. But unlike his brother Jogen, this monster has some worthwhile traits.

 

His scale is incredibly weird, since the highest level ninja is only level 7, but it offers an alternative method to summon out the underrated Red Dragon Ninja if you have a lower scale (do not use Jogen. He’s terrible). Plus his pendulum effect isn’t bad at all. Getting Hanzo to 2800 and Gold to 2500 is no joke, especially when you’re doing a Gold swarm or transforming Hanzo the next turn. It’s simply unfortunate that his field effect is utter crap.

 

Overall Kagen isn’t completely useless, and he has some future value if high level ninjas were to ever be released. But right now, the best Ninja decks still shouldn’t use him.

 

Advanced: 2/5

Future Potential: 2/5

From one Ninja Pendulum to the next, here is Twilight Ninja Kagen.
 
Kagen is a scale 10, but you can only Pendulum Summon Ninja monsters and you can't negate this effect. Standard for a high scale, but you'll only play this in Ninjas more than likely. Once per turn, if a Ninja monster you control attacks, you can have it gain 1000 ATK until the end of the Damage Step, even if Kagen leaves the field. This is a nice little effect to help something like White Dragon Ninja kill something he normally couldn't.
 
As a monster, you can tribute Kagen to have a Ninja gain 800 ATK until the end of the turn. This is nice on a Pendulum Monster, but he is a Level 1 and there are only 2 Scale 0 monsters. Would of been nice if Kagen was Level 2, but oh well.
 
This is another decent card for Ninjas to kill monsters they normally wouldn't be able to kill. Worth playing, especially being a Scale 10 for Ninjas, though there isn't a Level 9 Ninja.
 
Advanced Rating: 3/5
