Jiraiya [Legendary Pervy Sage]

Today's card is everybody's favorite dirty old man, Jiraiya!

This version of Jiraiya is quite solid. Turn 5 with 7/3 - 7/3? Yes, please! Problem with this card is that he can't be included in teams with Ninjas that are turn 2 or less. So, no Genins (other than the turn 3 Narutos) in his team. He's pretty solid, and I'm guessing there will be cards in this set that will make Jiraiya even more playable. Try it and see.

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5
Art: Pervy enough for ya?!/5

Matthew Low Friday 5/8 - Jiraiya [Legendary Pervy Sage] - Lightning - Ninja

A T5 Sannin that keeps 7/3 stats. Now that the previous Jiraiya powerhouse has been restricted, I can see this guy seeing some play as just a beatstick. Sure you won't be teaming him with your random zero drop or Gaara [Tragic Name] to toss guys, but he's still a beatstick and worth trying out. Time will tell if he's good enough that his effect isn't detrimental. From first look, he's not bad. Not amazing, but still decent.

Constructed: 4.0 out of 5.0 (Solid stats and early drop, but is that enough?)
Limited: 4.0 out of 5.0 (Hand cost but if that's satisfied, he's a monster.)

Jiraiya

 

Here's the new Jiraiya. He has ridiculous stats - 7/3-7/3 on T5. His only cost is that he can't be with T2 or lower ninjas. In the right deck, Jiraiya can be devastating. He's also a good addition to most Lightning decks in general. Is he worth running alongside Instruction? Yes, especially if you don't use Naruto much.

 

3/5

Art: It's okay.

Fun Fact: I don't think I'll have enough blood in my finger to write my name on that scroll, man.

StormVyper Zera Jiraiya [Legendary Pervy Sage]

This Jiraiya is sporting some nice stats for a Turn 5 Ninja (hell, those are nice stats for a Turn 6 Ninja.) 7/3~7/3 is pretty good, but all this power has to come at some price, correct? Of course it does, but it's a fairly small one: Jiraiya can't be teamed up with Ninjas Turn 2 or lower. But to be completely honest, does it really even matter? Provided you're hitting all your drops, this shouldn't be a problem at all. He's bigger than just about everything on Turn 5 except for vanilla Might Guy (gets rolled on the following turn as his Injured stats are lower). When you get right down to it this Jiraiya is a beatstick plain and simple, but in Constructed, you may opt to choose another Jiraiya to get more out of the card than just a big ninja (Jiraiya is actually pretty strong with his regular stats). Just make sure you leave the kids at home when playing this guy though. Jiraiya doesn't like the little wipper-snappers; too much sass.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 2/5
Artwork: Eh.
