Beastly Mage

Hidan

Today's card is a Starter Exclusive Hidan. Right off the bat: he's Lightning and Void. This fits well into the new Akatsuki Void theme (you can actually have all of the members in play thanks to this). He has Ambush, which can be good. Also, he's a T4 with a Hand Cost of 1. For a 6/0 - 6/0 it's pretty good. Now, his effect helps some of the new Akatsuki strategies, specifically those that deal with -1/-1 Coins. When a Ninja receives Damage from Hidan's team, that Ninja will get one of those coins. It doesn't specify if it's just one, so I'm guessing you can put one coin on the whole team. In the right deck this guy can help a lot (and if you've been watching the official previews, you know how he can help). Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: Starter/5
Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3.5/5
Art: He still refused to wear a shirt.../5


DIMHWT

hello pojo-loyalists, today we have for you the newest card from our favorite religuos fanatic, hidan from set 21 starters.
 
New hidan gets a minor stat boost from what we're used to at a 6/0 6/0 (about expected for a combat ninja on 4) with weapon (one day weapon will get something awesome, then all the weapon ninja will revolt!) with ambush and.....a handcost? his ability is pretty solid, whenever a ninja gets a damage (loses/ties a fight or jutsu) they get a -1/-1 coin on them.
 
void- the ability is a tad underwhelming, in the 21 format deidara and human path both have effects that are better for the element without the hand cost.
 
lightning-as of right now i can think of no archtype that could benefit from even one copy of hidan, almost a waste to pri nt him with that symbol.
 
fire-fire has been given the -1/-1 coin theme in this set, and hidan could make a useful addition if your not interested in the chibi on-color version.
 
water/wind-please kids, don't try this at home.
 
overall, im of the opinion that hidan is the least useable in big game out of the entire akatsuki set 21 starter exclusives, but that doesnt make him useless....
 
limited: NA
constructed block: void: 2/5 (void has so few ninja, i cant bear to give him  a 1) Lightning: 1/5 (handcost is his downfall) fire: 2/5 (if there was no chibi hidan, the starter would have some value) water/wind: 1/5
art: 5/5 (l-o-v-e this art extension)
 
I'm DIMHWT, and this was the naruto COTD, see you tomorrow ;)
