Beastly Mage

Gentle Fist Style: 8 Trigrams 64 Palms

If you've seen the series, you know this is one of Neji's signature techniques from when he was a Genin. So I find it odd that it requires a Turn 3 or Higher Byakugan Ninja to be used. Anyways, this card has two effects that can help the Hyuga Deck. First it makes one of your opponent's Ninjas go Stand-By. That's pretty simple. The other effect is activated when this Jutsu is in the Chain. During that moment, your opponent can't activate any effects from Jutsus or Ninjas. So, in effect, it's the end of the Chain. It's pretty strong, and helpful at the same time. For three Earth it's worth it. Good thing is that Chunin versions of Hinata can also use this card, but you probably want Neji to use it. The Expert part of the text states that if Neji uses this Jutsu you give one damage to the same Ninja you sent Stand-By. This would allow you to get it out of the battlefield, and make sure that Ninja doesn't return for a while.

Ratings:

Limited: 1/5 (specific characteristic + minimum turn cost + specific element cost)
Constructed: 2/5
Block: 3/5

I haven't had too much time to think about some of the things this can do, but from the way I see it, it can be a real "Game over." It definitely varies in rating depending on the format it is played in, but it is by no means a bad jutsu.
 
Limited: 2/5 If this is the rare in one of your packs, I feel bad for you because you probably won't be passed/pack a Neji.
Unlimited: 2/5 There are just too many good jutsus here for an over-costed Knockout Blow to see play.
Block: 3.5/5 The slot it would fit in is probably already filled with Howl or Super Slap, but you could give it a chance.
