Shino Aburame

Ah yes, Auron Jr. Now, I am a tad confused about this wording; does he have to be send out without teammates or without any other ninjas, including other teams? Also, one would think he can only choose one of the blocking teams that was sent out to battle, which is a shame; if you could use him to say "either I win a battle reward, or you lose your Konohamaru" he'd be good. However, since anything your opponent would block with could probably beat Shino, especially because he's a one drop, this isn't that great.

Limited/Constructed: 2/5


Friday's card is the new Shino Aburame and if you were wondering if this card is good or not, here's a second look at it. This Shino, like True Ace in the Hole, is a Turn 1 with 2/1 stats, Growth and Mental:1, but unlike True Ace in the Hole, this one is highly useful. When you attack, you get to select the team that battles him. More than likely, that trick will get Shino killed, but this trick also can get a big team through for a win, two Battle Rewards or to trigger effects that require a ninja to attack and remain healthy when returning to the village(Baki comes to mind specifically). If Shino does manage to survive when sent to battle, you may be able to heal him so he can do it again(run Iyashi!). This card adds to Wind's array of evasion cards.
Limited: 4/5(he's a low turn cost and can get in your team for the all-important win).
Constructed: 4/5(great for getting in effects like Baki's or for winning tha game for you).

Beastly Mage

Shino Aburame (n-156)

Hey there, Naruto fans. Today's card is yet another incarnation of everyone's favorite bug Ninja, Shino Aburame. His effect is quite simple. He attacks, your opponent must block with the team you select. Now, if your opponent's got some big teams, that's not a good idea. You better have a True Ace in the Hole (wait, that's another Shino, nevermind). Mental Power and Growth are good things, so he could be useful.


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


Hello pojo readers. Today's card is Shino Aburame from Revenge and Rebirth.

Hm, this Shino is pretty good in combo decks with Orochimaru [Recon], to play him over and over...He can also "revive" one of your ninjas after its bounced by the Third Hokage [Adressing Past Wrongs]. Unfortunately, having a good ninja bounced by the third usually spells game over, and you'd probably be better off with Shikamaru SP or Temari AM as your 1 drop, to help you beat your opponent before they drop their Third.

In limited, its a bit of card draw, and it can use Parasitic Insect. The mental power doesn't hurt, either.

Constructed: 1/5 (3/5 in combo decks)
Limited: 3/5
Art: 4/5
