Pain (Deva Path)

Deva Path is the strongest Pain, and the most sought-after Akatsuki right now. First off: Rinnegan, Mastery, and Ambush. He is (at the moment) the only qualified user for the Rinnegan Jutsu card, and he has two triggered effects that require you pick an opponent's Ninja at the start of your turn (optional). If your Turn Marker is even that Ninja MUST be sent out to battle this turn. If the Marker is odd then that Ninja CAN'T be sent out to battle. This can be used to either get rid of one annoying Ninja or to clear the path for the big hit. The effect is great, and the stats are excellent too. BTW: Notice "Name: Yahiko"?

In Limited he could be useful. Remember that Void's Hand Cost can be covered with any color. In Constructed he can be a killer. Trust me on that one...

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5

===========================
N-1000 Pain (Deva Path) [Deva Path]
===========================

We are Pain. We are god. Today's card is the poster boy of Set 19, Path (Deva Realm). This is the first version of the most iconic Path of Pain, and for his first card, he does not disappoint. At turn 6 with Ambush, Mastery ,Satoosa, and 8/3 healthy and 6/2 injured, Deva Path is one beatstick, albeit sacrificing a ninja or client. At the start of your turn, if your turn marker is even, you can force one of your opponent's ninjas out to battle; however, if it is odd, the selected ninja cannot be sent out to battle. This is a very convenient effect that forces bad blocks by your opponent as well as being an effect befitting of Deva Realm's abilities. If your opponent is stalling you with chumps while they are building up a strong team, you can force out their  strong team or stop the chump blockers from blocking. Regardless of the turn marker, forcing or stopping a ninja from battling is devastating. Additionally, Deva Realm is the only Pain realm that can use Rinnegan, which gives him an extra edge if you like running that jutsu. When it comes down to it, Pain is an incredible card that is very splashable and powerful. A very handy card indeed.

Limited: 4.5/5 Sacrifice sucks, but it can easily win you games if you can draft one.
Unlimited: 4.5/5
Block: 4.5/5
