Lions Barrage

Card Number: us007

Review Date: 08.06.07

Average Card Rating

Constructed: 2.33
Limited: 2.33

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


Lion's Barrage

Not too complicated of a jutsu. Requires Sasuke, but fire decks and some others run three copies anyways, and this jutsu can be decent lategame. Pay two fire for 1 damage or 4 for two. If they block with a jonin, you might force them to waste a Sharingan or Trigram, and if you're using Sasuke [Power of the Curse Mark], which becomes 5/0 when healthy if you have 2 or less cards in hand, that might not be too outlandish.

It's kind of expensive, but the damage is sure (no coin flips, etc.). It requires a specific ninja, but you're fairly likely to have him when you draw the jutsu.

Constructed: 2.5/5
Limited: 3/5

Beastly Mage

Lion's Barrage (j-us007)

Welcome to another week of reviews. Today's card is a character-specific jutsu. The new version of Lion's Barrage offers damage in exchange for fire-type chakra. Since it has 2 X's it means that you must pay at least two chakras for it, meaning you're gonna discard your opponent's ninja with this. Problem is that only Sasuke will be able to use it. But still, in Fire decks this can be useful, particularly in Freedori decks since Sasuke is one of the main cards (if not THE main card) in it. Try it and see.


Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5
Art: Ouch!/5

Lions Barrage

Today we are looking at the new Lion's Barrage from Eternal Rivalry. It's your normal Jutsu pretty much. Good thing the text on the card was fixed over at Bandai or this card would've been pointless. Either way, it requires Sasuke Uchiha as the user, which doesn't help the cause out very much. It's an X/X Jutsu which means in order for you to deal 1 damage to your opponent you would need to discard 2 fire in your chakra area, for 2 damage you would need 4 fire. Honestly, this Super will probably end up just staying in the binder, there are much better choices out there in terms of Fire jutsu cards.
Although, I sorta like the art on it. Other than that, I think you will find out for yourself how bad this card is...

My ratings:

Constructed: 1.5/5, Need Sasuke and at least 2 Fire chakra

Limited: 1/5, Need to pull Sasuke and this along with enough fire chakra...


The World didn't need another one of these. 
Yes, it can effectively kill a ninja, but at a very high cost:  Four fire chakra to be exact.
I would just rather 8 Trigram a ninja to the top of the deck and take it as a reward for two fire.  That's much easier and more effective.  Sure, this card can be used earlier because of Sasuke, but who has 4 fire on turn 1?
That brings me to the fact that it can only be used by one and only one ninja, which is never good.  It would be slightly better if it could be used by anyone with sharingan eye, but no, that is not the case.
In Conclusion:  Don't use either one.
Constructed:  2/5
Limited:  3/5  (better here because the one damage can be more useful, but remember to get Sasuke in there!)
