Beastly Mage

Under a Starry Sky

A great card for Tempo Decks. Since a lot of cards in that type of deck are Genin (and most of them Leaf) this card fits in nicely. Returning cards from the discard to the deck is good, particularly against Mill decks. This and Emina... well, you get the idea.

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5

M-310 Under a Starry Sky (UASS)

 

Hello readers. Today's card continues the mission-themed week we are currently having. It also follows yesterday's card as this is also a Turn-3 dual-element mission (Wind/Earth).

 

So for the cost of 1 Wind or Earth symbol from your hand you essentially get to do the following:

Count the number of Ninjas in your village that have both the "Leaf" and "Genin" characteristics. You can then retrieve that number of cards from your discard pile, arrange them in any order, and place them on top of your deck.

 

Now, how practical is that effect? Well, if you are playing a deck that focuses heavily on Wind and/or Earth and a lot of your Ninjas are in the "Leaf" and "Genin" category, then this card may be for you. A deck that might find room for this is one of those good old Genin Rush style decks. Those decks do tend to use a lot of Ninjas that would qualify for the effect of UASS.

 

So, the real question is: Will this card see play over the other wealth of Earth/Wind mission cards often found in Genin Rush decks? With the current 40-card decks, it will not likely see a lot of play. We already have Emina who lets you get back 5 Ninjas and is easily splashed into most decks. Plus, Wind/Earth tempo-style decks already have a lot of their slots filled with a wide variety of good mission cards (Caged Bird, Pass Permit, etc). However, with the format changing to 50 cards, you may see cards like Under a Starry Sky begin to populate decks.

 

I would currently score Under a Starry Sky as...

 

Constructed: 2/5

 

Limited: 1/5 (There weren't a lot of Leaf Genin ninjas in Lineage.)
