I doubt Tylar will fix the Unlimited Rogue List until next year (at least once before Gencon 2013)... The format is pretty much unplayable because Hikaru is *the* most broken card in the format.
Fourth Hokage isn't a problem in Unlimited. There are so many ways to stop him or to make him useless (especially if you have X number of ninjas out, if they burn 3 cards in hand to injure someone and possibly OV your team, oh well.. you have many other ninjas)... the fact Fourth can use jutsu is meh as well. He's not a problem (yet); though he's best in True Allies builds (as he can be recurred via Kakashi and repeatedly dropped).
Leech and Kushina might eventually become a problem; I think both should be watched definitely.
I envision Unlimited as balanced if every element has an "equal power level". I didn't really see many people play Earth at Gencon Unlimited, but Earth has Pillars (and a t3 Yamato who can use it). Earth also has BR Flip.dec which is their best deck AND 3x Byakugan to burn away the hand. Every element except for Monovoid is broken in Unlimited (or has potential to be so).
