CotD for 4-16-07

Greetings from Puerto Rico, Naruto Fans. No, I'm not on vacation, I actually live here. Today's card is everyone's favorite sickly Ninja, Hayate Gekko [Judgement]. His effect is quite simple: if a Ninja in your team is discarded by the result of battle you can move it to the top or bottom of your deck. This version of Hayate has a good support, so you'll probably want him as a back Ninja. Too bad his effect is not valid. Also, he's got mental power status as well as the Special Jonin/Proctor characteristics, which gives him access to certain Jutsus (Crescent Moon Dance comes to mind). If you run something with Fire or a Mental deck, this guy's a good choice.

Ratings:

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 3/5
Art: 3/5 (sorry, the other Hayate has better art)

Hi there, this is Ghostcat from the Pojo forums offering a review for today's card, Hayate Gekko.

N-100 Hayate Gekko (Element: Fire)
Entrance Cost: 3 | Hand Cost: 0
Leaf | Special Jonin | Male | Proctor | Mental Power: 1
[JUDGEMENT]
When another Ninja in this Ninja's team is discarded as the
result of the showdown, send it to either the top or bottom of the original owner's deck.
Healthy Stats: 4/3 | Injured Stats: 1/1 | Attribute: Weapon

When Curse of the Sand first came out, a lot of people were excited to have "a new Haku" or 3 support ninja on turn 3. Actually, he is far better than the SR Haku. He is a Special Jonin, which gives him access to lots of good jutsus, he has mental power, Proctor status, and an (arguably) better effect than Haku.

Unfortunately, now that Revenge and Rebirth has hit the shelves, we have access to Tayuya, a ninja with 3 support healthy or injured, which is better than both Haku and Hayate [Judgement.]

Hayate Gekko [Judgement] was cool for a while, but he's been replaced by better version of himself and better 3 support ninjas.

In limited it's another story. 3 support on turn 3 is great, and he can bring back a strong ninja, which are usually in short supply in limited, so he's an excellent choice.

Constructed: 2/5
Limited: 5/5
Art: 3/5
