I agree with Altjira, wizards should have really made more ninja cards. Theres 37 different samurai, so why are there not more ninjas?

If the ability didn't have the "your turn" restriction, it would be bonkers. As it stands, very little utility. A peep at your opponent's hand ain't wort Ninjutsu-level hassle when Telepathy is around.

I read an article that mentioned how to use her second ability in a clever way. In the case that you have more attackers than your opponent has defenders, once your opponent has declared blockers, it's not unlikely that he/she has blocked your Ninja. Return those blocked Ninja to your hand, then Ninjutsu them in using the attackers your opponent chose not to block. This ability is also useful if your opponent chooses to cast his Instant-Speed removal on your Ninja after the Declare Attackers Phase, but before the Declare Blockers Phase (because during that phase the unblocked ninjas could be ninjutsu'd out to give the spell an illegal target before resolving). Back when combat damage went on the stack you could probably abuse the ability to that end also.

Rant: Ninjas were a small cycle. Only Blue and Black got them, and they were limited to two commons, one uncommon and one Rare of each color. Walker of the Secret Ways was the Blue uncommon Ninja, and though useful in certain situa... (see all)

why did it have to be TARGET ninja, though? why not just; {1}{U}: Return a Ninja you control to its owner's hand.

Once this Mirrodin rerun block is over, how about we continue on with history and do a sequel to Kamigawa as well? :D

Some of you information seems to be off. It's about 25,000 years after the Kamigawa Kami War, which occurred long before Tetsuo Umezawa defeated Bolas on Madara. When Bolas escaped Tetsuo's prison, he swore vengeance on all the Umezawa clan and anyone instrumental in their victory. If we read the novels depicting the Kami War, Toshiro Umezawa was brought to Madara by the Myojin of Night's Reach. Bolas sought out Night's Reach -- defeating her, turning her followers against her, and destroying her realm, which -- it should be noted -- is not Kamigawa, or at least not in its entirety. We see that Kamigawa is still extant in Agents of Artifice, where Jace defeats Tezzeret -- long after Bolas's conflict with Night's Reach.

There you have it - hope yet for a revisit.

The best ninja art ever. Shame on wizards to have printed so little ninjas and so much bad spirits in BOK. sigh.

They really should have called the ability sneak attack or something. Now it's unlikely to see print again since it's so heavily tied to the Japanese flavour of the Kamigawa block. They'd have to bend over backwards to accomodate them in most settings. Bad Wizards! Think ahead next time.

TNC: I'm going to use this card.

LO: But you don't have any ninja in your deck.

TNC: But it's pretty.

LO: But you don't have any blue in your deck.

TNC: Lo, it's PRETTY.

LO: You have a creatureless discard deck!

TNC: Look, if you try to interject logic into this conversation one more time I'll equip her with Pennon Blade.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
