Niva is a true expert in the art of looking after the Jungo, whether they’re of the feathered, furry or scaly variety. Yet, despite all her efforts to pass on basic first aid tips, such as not necessarily fighting with every GHEIST member who crosses their path, she's still a long way from being short of work.

Life for the animals in Clint City’s Zoo was turned upside down the night the meteorite “JNGA XII” crash landed on their cages. In the moments after the crash, radiation emitted by the huge rock, mixed up the DNA of all the creatures in the vicinity. Half-man and half-animal, the Jungo unite behind Ongh and swear to never return to their cages.

    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.

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    3 pillz on her, your opponent will either not be able to defeat her and they take 4 damage, or they do defeat her and their damage is reduced greatly. Amazing card.
