3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.

the bogosian explosion

Jiraiya...Ya the special little cousin of the perverted one. At least the pervert is way more interesting.

Anywho, for its turn cost it is extremely good. It's effect, meh not sooo much; it is perfect in a deck based on growth, but then you wouldn't really need to use his effect would you. 1 card from your hand for a +1/+1....ummm how about kunai???? Yep that pretty much works for me.

Excellent turn 6...but why do that when you can have a turn 4 possibly 3 Jiraiya!?

constructed: 3.5/5
limited: 5/5(i feel for your opponent)


Jiraiya [Releasing the Seal]

Pros: Big Power
Make Ninja’s Fat

Cons: Limitations

I love this post-Thanksgiving theme we have going on. Today we have Jiraiya [Releasing The Belt] I mean Seal]. Ok, so his effect is only ok. If a ninja with growth doesn’t have a growth coin on it discard a card and give it a growth coin. This would be awesome if three things were different. One, the ninja doesn’t have to have growth. Two, the ninja could have growth coins on it beforehand. Three, the card went to your chakra area instead of the discard pile. I like the old Toad Hermit but he’s so much better in other forms and will be a lot better in later sets.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 4/5
Art: 3/5

The Review

N. Jolly here with the new Jiraiya, Releasing the Seal. This is a card that with stats alone warrents it's play in most lightning decks. But this one has a neat little ability that allows it to let other cards get more powerful by sacrificing cards from your hand. The the only real problem is that there's not enough targets for this card to use with right now. Only Shikamaru (Smarty Pants) is really worth the effort, and Lightning/Earth is really more of a Taijutu element right now. Both cards you'd think to use with this, Shino(True Ace in the Hole) and Naruto(Fast Growth), don't get it unless they're brought out through growth, so they don't get their neat abilities. But this is a card that will be more useful as the sets go on.

Constructed 3.75/5
Limited 3.5/5



Hello all Pojo faithful, and welcome to another week of Card reviewin. Sorry for not postin yesterday, but to make it short and sweet, Monday's Kakashi=very good. Heh, now, movin on to more recent events, today brings us to the newest COTD, one of the Supers of the Curse of the Sand set, Jiraiya, N-127.

Jiraiya-Super Rare Lightning Ninja; Costs: 6-1; 7/2, 6/2; Leaf/Sannin/Male
[Releasing the Seal] At the beginning of your turn, you can discard 1 of the cards in your hand to place 1 Growth coin on a Ninja with "Growth" if it does not already have one.

The second (numerically) Jiraiya from the new set, and it's just as playable as the other. Stats are basically the same, and this Jiraiya is able to give Growth to one of your in-play Ninjas, if it doesn't have one. The only thing that it does is place the +1/+1 coin on the selected Ninja, and that's only if said Ninja wasn't brought out by Growth. Overall, it's a decent cards, but I'd probably play it more for the stats rather than the effect. Remember, by using Jiraiya's (N-127) effect, you just place a coin on a Ninja, you don't send it to the Chakra area or anything of the like. If you're running a deck that heavily relies on Growth to power up your Ninjas, slip 1 of these in there, feel it out.

Limited 3/5
