Beastly Mage

Hinata Hyuga (Childhood)

Today's card is a Chibi Exclusive from the upcoming Tourney Packs!

Hinata as a Ninja Academy Student has some good things going for her.A turn 1 with 2 support in healthy and 1 in injured is good even if she doesn't have any combat. Taijutsu Combat Attribute is good too. Her characteristics are plenty, I must say, Mental and Main Branch included.

Now, her effect is good too. It only kicks in when she's discarded due to the Showdown. Rather than hit the discard pile, she goes to your Chakra Area... and you get to (randomly) discard one card in your opponent's hand...

SWEET!

For Hand Control decks, this is good. Even though you lose a Ninja, you do get Chakra, and you discard one of your opponent's cards in the hand. Though, the name would apply more to the card art than to the effect. LOL

Limited: Tourney Pack/5
Constructed: 3/5

==================================
5/24/10 N-865 Hinata Hyuga (Childhood) [Cute]
==================================

Today's card is our compensation preview since Piercing Chidori was spoiled, and it is quite an interesting one to say the least. First off, she's a T1 ninja which is kinda strange since her Genin form is T0, sans her earlier forms which was T1. Also, she dons 0/2 and 0/1 stats which is the normal T1 support stats, except Hinata usually has a little bit of combat. That aside, she's still pretty good. Let's get to her effect.

Her effect is similar to that of the other (Childhood) Genins; it is triggered by moving her to your chakra area when she is discarded due to the showdown. I've had mixed feelings about these effects since you generally don't want to kill off your ninjas, except it makes them very nice chumps since they give you a nice boost. Her effect in particular is very good, since it is similar to that of [Reserved Character]. Nuking your opponent's hand with her when she dies is good, and it can start to stack if you play [RC] next turn.

She is very good in draft, as that is what she was made for, but she has a problem or two in constructed since Hinata [SS] + Hinata [RC]/(Student) is a popular combination. She can still be put in these decks, but it would be like running Haku (Childhood) and Tracking Ninja; both are good, but one becomes a dead-card when you have the other out. However, she is good in decks that are running Hinata [For The One I Admire] since you can grow over her for a possible two card nuke. Or you can always search her out Hinata [SS] for a T1 with three support that will be useful when she is no longer needed. The only other problem with her is she is not really a good choice for Naruto/Hinata since you won't get her strong effect.

Right now, she is very good and playable since she has (Childhood) attached to her name so she won't tie-up your Hinata slots, but some people may not want to run a lot of cards with the same name. In the end, Hinata (Childhood) is a very strong card that will be even better after rotation.

Limited: 5/5 Good effect, decent stats, early game. 'Nuff said
Constructed: 3.75/5 Very good, but you may not want to crowd your deck with Hinatas.
Block: 3.75/5 Same as Constructed since pretty much every Hinata people use are Block legal. After the rotation though, this card will probably become an Earth staple.

She sure is. We here at pojo bring you our first Tournament Pack 1 preview card! (All thanks to SOMEONE on the Bandai forums who spoiled our last preview…)
 
So, aside from being 100% adorable, I really like this card. It has good synergy with Hanabi to help your curve, and good support stats. It is odd to see a younger version of Hinata that is a higher entrance cost than her Genin versions, however. But this Hinata has all the nifty characteristics we’ve seen on the last 2 Hinata cards previous, plus an awesome effect. Hinata (like the other childhood cards) goes to chakra when discarded AND pops a card from their hand. Not too bad at all. This card will be useful in Hyuga decks and Leaf Academy Decks where dropping all your Hyuga ninja or getting growth off respectively will win you the game. Other than that though, most decks will stick with [Moving], [Strong Spirit] and [Reserved Character] Hinata cards.
