Beastly Mage

8 Triagrams 128 Palms

Another version of Neji's lethal Jutsu. This one implies a bit of chance though. You have to flip a coin 4 times and for every head result you give one damage to any of the opposing Ninjas. If played right, this can be a disaster for your opponent (you do the math). Try it and see.

Village Kage
8 Trigrams 128 Palms

This card is an awesome addition to the Byakugan archetype. This archetype has never surfaced as a top tier deck due to the lack of support from Bandai. But this new jutsu is a step in the right direction. Itʼs rather chancy but itʼs well worth the risk.

First off, the cost is very nice. Itʼs easy to pay and cannot be gigantic fanned. Requirements are decent. We have Neji, Hizashi, Hiashi, and the Hiashi/Hanabi platoon as ninjas that can be the user of this card. Granted, we need better Hizashis and Hiashis, but the requirements make it so that this jutsu can be consistently played.

Now for the effect. Iʼd like to think of this card as an automatic 1 damage since there is a 93.75% of flipping at least 1 heads. But most people would prefer flipping at least 2 heads. Flipping 2 heads allows you to negate jutsus via removal of a ninja. And the odds of doing so are 68.75%. So most of the time, youʼll have two damages to fire at your opponent, and almost all the time, you can do at least 1 damage. This effect is also flexible. If you flip 2 heads, you can either discard a ninja or spread the damage to the back ninjas and try to score an outstanding victory.

Obvious combos are using effects that allow you to re-flip a bad flip or automatically flip heads. Byakugan decks still need a bit of help but I am liking this new jutsu and hope to run it when this archetype gets a little bit more support. All percentages in this review are 100% correct.

Rating: 4.1/5

The First Hokage
8 Trigrams 128 Palms

Continuing on with Approaching Wind, we take a look at 8 Trigrams 128 Palms.

The Jutsu requires Ninja Hyuuga or Byakugan and a Ninja of turn 4 or higher.
The effect says flip 4 coins, for each head give 1 damage to the target. The targets are the team you are battling against. The Jutsu costs 1 earth and 2 of any chakra. I personally don't like the Jutsu. I hate relying on luck to do damage, I'd much rather play something that has a solid effect without relying on luck whatsoever. I like the concept, I just wish it did not have to do with a coin flip.

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