I dont think you are givign the card a fair chance. New Sakura lets u return 2 cards from chakra/discard to deck potentially. not to mention mizukage lets u negate 4 ninjas. all EOJ are doubled up so preta path can negate twice while odd and human path removes 4 cards and naraka lets u play double icon.
the card has a lot of potential ad with TB rushing our way ninja effects are going to need to step it up to beat em.
It has potential but it still relies on the opponent having 5 BR's I like to avoid playing cards that relies on my opponent's actions in a match unless it's specifically to deny said actions. Compare that to Empassioned Speech which works right away and is in an element that has the draw power to support it.
