Niva - "Wise Gap"

Ability Summary:
'Courage: -4 Opp. Dmg, Min 2' = If played first in a round, Niva will reduce the Opps dmg by 4 to a minimum of 2.

Pros:
+ 8 Power.
+ Her 4 Dmg and 6 with fury works in amazing synergy with her clan bonus.
+ Excellent ability allows for lots of bluff potential.
+ Doesn't need her ability to hurt.
+ If you use her first as an attacker and lose, your Opp is still reduced by 4 damage if unopposed.

Cons:
- SoB cuts into her gap potential.
- SoA ruins her dual potential.
- Weak versus Attack/Power manipulation if attacking.

-
Rating:
-------8 Power
---4---- Damage
------7- Ability
-------8 Bonus/Ability Synergy

Overall Rating: 9/10

This card has so much potential. A Wonderful dmg reducer or a +6 gap (+8 w/fury!) producer, her courage base lets her become a very decent bluff either way and her base stats allow her to ignore her ability entirely and be played any time. SoB and SoA reduce this potential, but overall she's a very versatile card. I don't even consider the 'courage' nature of her ability a con as it provides so much strategic potential. Highly recommended.

Niva
Level 1- 3/1
Level 2- 4/2
Level 3- 6/3
Level 4- 8/4 Ability: Courage: -4 Opp Damage Min 2.

Pros:
-8 Power is very very solid, and can win her some battles.
-Can reduce your opponent by 4! With a low minimum of four.
-Usually I would put 4* as a Con. But with Pegh and Mindy, Niva can be found in your deck anytime!
-Still stands pretty well against SoA. But it rids of her awesome damage reducing potential.
-Lots of strategy with her. You can pump a bit of pillz into her, if you win, you can make a 6 life gap. If you lose, -4 Damage!
-Niva can be used as a 3* filler, since she unlocks her ability at Level 3.

Cons:
-Low damage, NOT a huge problem, since Jungo isn't exactly a 2HKO clan. (They're supposed to make Life Gaps...)
-SoA hurts more than SoB, since she loses her awesome damage reduction ability.
-SoB can hurt, too. Since she loses her +2 Life...
-Can be predictable, there is a chance that you're opponent will just throw out an SoA when you play with her Courage.
-Because of predictability (Is that even a word?), your opponent can also counter her.

Conclusion: 9/10.
Since Sylth is banned, I figure using Niva is what's best. She's amazing and Courage isn't even a huge problem since there's a lot of strategy potential for her. She can play games with your opponent's mind. I recommend pumping a little bit of pillz into her since a life gap of 6 isn't so bad.

This card is amazing. If you can't afford her oh well. smiley I think a lot of people don't understand the potential of most Jungo cards. An 8/4 with Courage: -4 Opp Damage Min 2 and +2 Life is insane. The Ability leaves the opponent not wanting to waste pillz, so you can just squeak by with 3 or 4 pillz on Niva. 4 Damage and you gaining 2 life is nothing to laugh about either. The next attack the opp makes could just be shot down with Pegh, and oh look! You might only happen to take 2 Damage.

She is great addition to all of the other 4* in Jungo smiley

I see a very big benefit with her courage abilitiy. Opponent usually doesn't expect that you'll play with her when your second. SURPRISE smiley

In the last evolution 'Y U No stop my ability?'

what would make Niva op? 2 more damage

Monday 13/05/2013, 10:01

Oh come on now people, countering her ability is no big deal, she doesn't have it half the time anyways. It's that 8 power and 6 life gap you gotta look out for. Jungo has some high powered cards and good attack manipulators, Niva can definitely find a place in any Jungo deck.

She is exactly the same as Kephren with one less damage and Kephren is still a newblood.
Guess what? He's about 5000 clintz cheaper.
Come on guys.

Lvl 1:For the looks of your eyes,i can see that you got an Anthrax smiley

Lvl 3:Nah,this bandages will cover you up smiley
Lvl 4: Ongh,another dead patient heresmiley

Niva would be much better without courage

Fact: 19th century nurse Florence Nightingale did keep and nurse a baby owl in which she kept in her pocket

so i think that is why Niva is an Nurse Owl

This card is so expensive!
Rate green if you can't afford it now!

potential 3* filler. true 6 power is a lot different than 8 power and not as much strategic potential as shadowcouncil mentioned in his review, but if u need tht low * filler and already have Pegh, it could b an option.
