Well, it's nice that the best card of the week is
being reviewed on Friday! Hanewata brings one
question to mind...how is this only a Super Rare?
Anyway, we have a Level 1 Fairy-type Tuner monster
of the Light attribute with 200 attack and 300
defense, with a simple effect. It can negate any and
all effect damage you take during a turn by being
discarded to the Graveyard, and it can be done
during either player's turn, so it can be damage you
do, or your opponent is doing to you.
It's a great card, for either Format, and I would
recommend playing one for whatever Deck you are
using, as it will most likely come in handy at one
time or another. Hand disruption isn't all that big
right now, so it can sit relatively safely in your
Hand. Plus, it's a Tuner, so it has an additional
use for Synchros!
Art: 5/5 SO cute in holofoil! A different colored
Watapon, but with Wings :) Adorable!
This is like a Kuriboh for Burn damage. That is all
there is to it. The fact that it is a Tuner, LIGHT
Fairy is just a bonus. In the end, he is just
anti-burn tech. And how many Burn decks have seen
play at a Shonen Jump this year? None. So, the
counter to a non-existent decktype would not be good
to play right now.
I have to rate this card fairly though, he stops any
burn damage for a turn, often at a total surprise to
an opponent. He does what he does better than pretty
much any other card out there. Unfortunately, he is
not needed at all right now, but if ever Burn decks
come back, he will be played, at least in side
You can discard this card to make any effect damage
you take this turn 0.
This effect can be activated during either player's
Effect damage isn't as big as it was when Chain Burn
was around. Hanewata can be discarded like a D.D.
Crow to have any effect damage you take this turn 0.
The only effect damage cards we have that are played
are Ceasefire and Magic Cylinder. It would just
eliminate Chain Burn decks, but since Burn decks in
general aren't being played this card won't see mucb
play. It is a tuner though, which can help Syncrho
summon. Its a card that would have been better years
The Fairy Kuriboh. That's pretty much enough said,
Maybe not. Kuriboh hasn't seen play, really, since
Legacy of Darkness, and his status as a tier-one
card has been disputed since his release. The main
reason he hasn't been maindecked for so long is the
fact that his discard is just another card out of
your hand, no more, no less. He didn't feed the
graveyard for you (except in the Necrofear Return
deck), and Hanewata can. Hanewata can add a lot of
power to a Fairy build, whether it's Counter-Fairy
or otherwise. I'd definitely expect to see him being
In Traditional, it can feed the graveyard for some
Chaos, but overall it won't see much play.
