Ebony Owl Netsuke

Ebony Owl Netsuke
Mr. Owl doesn’t approve of you having nice things, so he’s going to shoot you with his laser eyes. That’s honestly what I think about whenever I see this card. This card can come out pretty early in the game, meaning that its effects are going to be felt through the match and its effect are pretty painful. Getting hit for 4 every turn you start with a full hand puts an opponent on a pretty tight clock. However, that clock can easily be jammed by just not keeping a full hand. And unlike cards like ThumbscrewsMiser's Cage, your opponent needs to have a full hand or larger to trigger the owl’s laser-death-eye-beams. A hand of six cards is still decent and the damage only triggers on upkeep, so it’s pretty easy to avoid. Cool art, less-than-decent card.

Pros: Deals a good chunk of damage to opponents with big hands, cheap
Cons: Can easily be avoided 

Rating: 2/5
