Beastly Mage

Haku [Kekkei Genkai: Bloodline Trait]

Welcome to another week of reviews. Today's card is the first SR Haku. Now, no jutsu negation is nice, however there are certain jutsus used today that require rank, which this ninja obviously doesn't have. It's not a gamebreaking card, but it's pretty good. It all depends on your strategy though. Now, 3 support is pretty good too. Using it is all up to you.

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 2/5 (Superhuman speed anyone?)
Art: Yes, it's a guy.../5

Alucard of the Abyss

Haku [Kekkai Genkai: Bloodline Trait]

Well, Monday's review brings us to an old favorite that has slowly lost it's luster over the course of the game.

[Bloodline Trait] used to be a very popular choice in the meta a couple seasons ago, but recently it's not seen as much. It is still a decent card, but the lack of a ninja rank really brings down the number of jutsu he can use that you wouldn't want to be negated. Big Jutsu choices are mostly the stuff that can be played as Jonin or higher rank or specific requirements (Deep Forest, Chidori, etc.) and Haku unfortunately doesn't qualify. He doesn't even see a whole lot of splash action in decks that run some lower jutsu like Paper Bomb or Sexy Jutsu, more for a matter of space. Even in Five Pronged Seal where you want Seal to go off it doesn't see play because it's a turn 3 which is generally 1-2 turns later than Seal wants to go off.

Casual play he is still a good choice. Casual is usually non-competitive and there is really no reason to run things like 8 Trigrams, Vortexes and Deep Forests and what not. He is a good choice for casual play if you are playing a deck that has an important Jutsu that you want to go off every once in a while.

For sealed/draft it's very simple: Choose him first. His solid effect mixed with the fact that you take anything good you can get makes it an easy choice.

Overall, solid effect but no rank makes him a card that is mostly passed over in competitive play. Nothing special about his stats, same as most general 3 drops.

Competitive: 3/5 (Good effect, but no rank brings down his score)
Casual: 3.5/5 (a little higher here because casual is just that, casual and not competitive)
Sealed/Draft: 4/5 (pick him first, solid effect makes it an easy choice)

-Alucard of the Abyss-

The First Hokage

Haku[Kekkei Genkai: Bloodline Trait]

When I first started playing this used to be my favorite cards and one of the best cards out there because of that 3 support. Right now, this card is easily outshined by the new Sound 4 Ninja being Tayuya, Kidomaru, and sometimes Sakon. Haku's effect is pretty nice, but since Haku is not a Jonin, his effect is limited to a very select few cards. His effect being Valid is nice, but his injured stats are pretty horrible. Haku has lost his flare for the most part, but for fun games, Haku can cause some definite problems. He's also not too bad in Mono Water builds.

My Ratings:

Constructed: 2.75/5 Outshined recently due to better Water Support
Limited: 5/5 3 Support in Path to Hokage Can Not be beat

Mark Howard

Haku [Bloodline Trait] is a very good version of Haku. If I had it, I'D USE IT. This is a good card that can be splashed into any Deck, although there better splooshers than this for most decks.

Although, for Water Decks (Especially those being a Haku/Zabuza build) it's like Hayate for Fire, Freedori, and Animal! In a Haku/Zabuza Deck capable of using lots of Jutsu cards, this Haiku scores

4/5 syllables.

NEXT TIME: It's like Lightning, but in Sword Form
saurabh dubey Haku ( Bloodline Trait )

This is goona be a short review. Average Haku stats, and the effect is cool, as justsu cards used by him can't be sharienganed. Besides low injured stats, that's all I can say about him.

My Ratings:

Limited: 4.0

Constructed: 3.5
