Ino Yamanaka [Formation]
This week Rakath has us review the faithful trio in
the show, Shika-Ino-Cho. To start the weak, we have
Ino, tricky little girl that capture one's heart
both inside and out.
Mental power is always good, but she only has one. I
guess it is better than nothing. She also has one
support, which is standard. The effect requires
other Shikamaru and Choji, which makes sense, but is
bad in a card game. The fact that the team becomes 9
power and 5 mental is nothing to joke about on turn
2. Further more, effect of everyone in the team is
valid, which makes it slightly better. Then again,
the chances of you getting all three is not great.
It is not worth it to play 3 copies of each one in
the team just to play around with.
There is not much to say about her, since there is
not much to her but a pretty face.
Shika-ino-Cho deck: 5.0/5 its required
Power: 0/1 (Healthy) 0/1 (Injured)
Leaf | Genin | Female | Mental Power: 1
Valid: This ninja gets +1/+1 when "Shikamaru Nara"
and "Choji Akimichi are in this ninja's team.
At most, this team could be at 9 total at just turn
2. Pretty good. However, alone, she isn't all that
great. She has a decent Jutsu, but it's cost and
requirement are pretty steep and specific.
She's better than the original Ino, but that ain't
saying much. Her mental power really helps her
Maybe throw her in your Mental build. Otherwise, she
and her comrades are pretty fun to build a deck
around. In limited, her Mental could really help you
out, and early support is useful, but she's not
Constructed Mental: 3.5/5
Constructed Formation (Genin Rush) Deck: 5/5
- Ino Yamanaka [Formation]
First of this week with a theme, a good theme, an oh
so good theme. Ino's stats are generally par for the
course for this pretty girl. 0/1 - 0/1 - M1 No Turn
wait or hand cost. She has Mind Combat Attribute
(nothing to do with Mental Combat, all to do with
her Jutsu cards). And a Valid effect, she gains
+1/+1 if Shikamaru and Choji on her team. Why is
this better than her other form last set, you
control her effect, not them. That and mental
combat. Along with that she goes with the rest of
this week's theme.
Because of the cards tomorrow and the day after,
she's a toss in for Mental decks, and a staple in
her own deck. She's better than Set 1 form.
Ino Yamanaka rating - 4/5
Constructed rating (InoShikaCho decks) - 5/5
Constructed rating (Mental Power decks) - 2.5/5
Limited rating - 1/5 (Not helpful without the
others, chances of getting the trio are low)
Art - 3/5 (Meh...)
