Neji Hyuga & Hizashi Hyuga

This is one powerful platoon for Taijutsu decks. Being able to use the most powerful Jutsus a Hyuga can use (namely Neji and those with a high turn cost) for free is pretty good. Too bad that it's not valid, like the second effect: the part about not being affected by your opponent's missions, which is a good bonus. Other problem with this platoon: it's a Genin! Since the dad's rankless... still, it's pretty good in its own deck.

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5 (unless you can draft the Jutsu cards)
Constructed: 3.5/5
Art: Very paternal/5

Mark Howard

Today's card is Neji and Hizashi. Being a turn 5 Platoon is pretty good, and no hand cost and 7/0 6/0 is much better. The first issue here is that one of the cards is Neji. Generally, Neji gets shunned from the metagame by being a turn 2 card with his only stats being either 3/0-3/0 or 3/0-2/0, which is only as powerful as Sasuke, and Neji effects don't stand out as much as other early-turn Ninjas with 1 (or none) stat point lower.

Aside from that, they can use those silly Trigram cards without paying the cost. That's really good, but then again those Jutsu can sometimes let you down when you need them most, so they aren't too reliable. But, just being able the use it for free is good enough.

The stats are pretty good as well. They're almost as good as Jiraiya, but then again he's already high enough. Also, this Platoon is not affected by Mission Cards, so they can't be Selecting the Strongest, Caged Birded, Cursed Fated, or balblablad. Other than that, there's nothing generally awesome about these guys, but there's nothing particularly terrible about them.

3.5/5

Art: Meh

Fun Fact: Neji is a Nazi because he has a Swastica (or however you spell it), or a multiplication symbol, or just an X. Whatever floats his boat.

Tomorrow: *Checks next Tab*, okay, it looks like we're booked for our next review!
