Lord
Tranorix
Hade-Hane

Hade-Hane is a Level 5 Flip Effect monster with 900 ATK and 1000 DEF. He can be summoned with Giant Rat, but if you do that, you won’t get to use his effect, as he’ll be face-up.

Hade-Hane can bounce up to three cards back to their owners’ hands. That’s a good effect. The problem is that he’s a Flip Effect monster who’s also a tribute monster. It’s just not a good combination – it wastes too many resources.

Can it be useful? Sure. I suppose you could combine it with Shallow Grave, or summon it with Giant Rat and then use Book of Moon or something…but I wouldn’t recommend it.

CCGCC: 2/5
EARTH Deck (with Guardian Sphinx, Des Lacooda and co, probably): 3/5
OVERALL RATING: 2.5/5
 

ExMinion OfDarkness
Hade-Hane

As if Penguin Soldier wasn't enough...

Hade-Hane is a Tribute Set that lets you bounce 3 opposing monsters back to the owner's hand. Honestly, I've never been a fan of regular bounce -- giving an opponent their resources back leads to early hits and life point advantage but usually ends up biting whoever tries it in the rear end, thanks to massive swarm with the monsters that kept getting returned along with other cards. Bouncing to the deck (a la Phoenix Wind Wing Blast) was actually viable as it denied the opponent a resource next turn (modified Yata-lock, anyone?) but I don't really see what's so great about regular old monster bouncing. I'd much rather just have the opponent's monsters destroyed through some better effect.

Oh wait, I barely even touched on the fact that Hade-Hane is a TRIBUTE SET -- you're investing two resources (Hade-Hane and the monster tributed) in order to try to bounce 3 monsters (at best). Hade-hane gets Nobleman'd? -2. Hade-Hane gets removed by BLS, some other weird face-down monster removal, or negated by Balter? -2. Even if it gets the effect off and bounces THREE monsters, if the opponent either resummons them later or uses them to pay for discard cost effects (Vortex, Tribe, graveyard fodder for BLS) you're still -2. If you flip Hade-Hane, you better win that turn, and with wasted resources and turns on a tribute set, that's probably not going to happen.

1/5

Hade-Hane COTD

...Yeah...

If your opponent has 3 monsters out on the field, chances are you're losing, anyways. Bouncing them won't help much unless you do something like Morphing Jar right after. And both Hade-Hane and Morphing Jar can get searched out by Giant Rat! Then use Book of Moon! I got combos!

=/.

I guess you could try it out and see if you can use it effectively, but most of the time bounce is not very effective, and the stats are so weak that a Sangan can take it in ATK mode, so I wouldn't go too offensive with this unless you have Tsukuyomi and Book of Moon to cover you.

Rating: 2/5 (T3H C0MB035!11!!!uno!)
 

Coin Flip
Hade-Hane, huh?

General:
1/5 Traditional
1.2/5 Advanced

I was originally going to review Fiend Megacyber for today, but then Monday’s card was changed to Fiend Megacyber. Now I actually need to think of a good card. Which isn’t too hard.
 
Snapper Hade-Hane

……… Well if you thought yesterday's card was bad, then I'm happy to say you probably won't think to highly of today's card (which is Hade-Hane in case you've forgotten).

What can be said about a Level 5 Flip Effect monster? Nothing good.

Moving along, when Hade-Hane is flipped face-up, you can return up to three monsters on the field to the owner's hand. Unlike yesterday's card, Hade-Hane's effect is usually useful, allowing you to in most cases clear the opponent's field of monsters.

The only real downside is that it is a Flip Effect that comes with a Level 5 monster. So the moment you Tribute Set Hade-Hane, your opponent will suspect something, and make it's desctruction priority number one. Couple this with the fact that you could be using Penguin Soldier for a near identical effect or Guardian Sphinx for a much more useful effect, and Hade-Hane falls into the same category as Byser Shock (the bad one).

Advanced: 1.5/5. Could be useful, but it's unlikely your opponent will allow you to use the effect.
Traditional: 1/5. Flip Effect = need for avoiding.
Overall: 1.25/5.
Art: 3/5. I don't think tribal communities have much in the axe department…
 
dawnyoshi Hade-Hane - seriously. Just run Penguin Soldier if you want bounce. Penguin Soldier, Abyss Soldier, and Nightmare Penguin are looking down at this card from the Empire State Building when it comes down to constructed tournament play.

In limited, however, Hade-Hane is the ultimate field-disruption, as it completely destroys turns of summoning from your opponent. Oh, wait. You need to tribute set this monster just to make sure its effect with go off. Oh, wait. If you had time to do that, you’re probably winning already. Oh, wait. Nobleman-Eater Bug is infinitely better.

It’s collecting dust for a reason. Leave it buried under your bed.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
Limited: 1/5
 

Dark Paladin
Hade-Hane

Today's card has the unremarkable power of being able to return up to three of your opponent's monsters to their hand when attacked. As with yesterday's card, the only REAL thing that hinders it is the fact it requires a tribute.

Earth and Beast are meh on accounts of no one is probably going to run this card...ever. The only real purpose it might serve would be in a bounce deck, and Hane-Hane might be better. It returns two monsters, but doesn't require the tribute.

Again, like yesterday, this card falls just short of playability, due to the tribute.

Ratings:

1.0/5 general
2.5/5 Bounce decks (both formats)

Art: 3.0/5 Very tribal

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
 
Rj Hade-Hane
Attrib: Earth
Type: Beast/Effect
Level:5
Atk: 900
Def: 1000

FLIP: You can return up to 3 monsters on the field to the owner's hand.
Well, looking at Hade-Hane's stats, you could clearly dismiss THIS thing as crap, and that is mostly what it is. I admit trying him out in casual, it was pretty fun. I would use Giant Rat to bring it out, and in the end phase Book Of Moon it, something like that. The combos were sorta hard to pull off, and I never played the deck outside of testing with my friends.

I mean, at least with Byser Shock, I would not be very surprised to see someone top 8 at a Shonen Jump tourney with it. Mainly because it has some combos, more then I listed yesterday. With a little luck you probably pilot Byser Shock to top 8 ;\. But probably not.

I really am trying to drag this review out, but I mean, there is only so much you can do with this thing. Maybe make a soul control variant and use this =/. 3 monsters is a good bit, but if your using even just 1 resource and this, (Tribute + This/Soul Exchange + This) and all you hit is a bunch of goat tokens, that isn't even worth it. I am not even getting into the whole "I set this and the nobleman it", congrats, thats a 2-1 for them (Your tributed monster, barring Sangan or SInister Serpent, + This monster itself, when they used one nobleman.)! I would much rather have a airknight attacking/killing those goats. Airknight also makes your opponent go "Omg, he has an airknight out and the only monsters I have are these goats! Wait! Snatch steal!111" "Umm, Dust tornado".

Rofl.

Traditional: 1/5, at least in advanced, you can toy around with types like this. I mean in traditional you have Dark Hole AND Raigeki. So "=/=/=/".

Advanced: 2.5/5, not worth it 90% of the time.
