Shino Aburame

[Tracking by Insects] is one of the best incarnations of Shino yet (not the best, but one of them still). It lets you make a four-Ninja team in a flash. Mental decks can benefit from this guy, as well as many others. But, remember, he has to be a stand-by Ninja during the exchange of Jutsu for the effect to activate, AND he has to be healthy. Still, he's a good surprise for your opponent. Try it and see.


Limited: 4/5

Constructed: 3.5/5

Art: I want you!/5


N-US064 Shino Aburame

Hmmm, has 2/1 0/0, growth, a non-valid effect, and finally one mental power. lets look at its effect now, if its a standby ninja during the exchange of jutsu then you can throw it into any of your teams.  the uses i can come up with include a counter measure the newer DFC, or to add him to the same team as TN in order to have ammo to throw at your foe and kill a ninja after the battle, after all not many people pay attention to a players standby ninja when wondering if they should block.  Might be good in some kind of deck, but i can honestly only think of it as a low turn for a wind deck, if its stats were higher it might have a bit more impact then as a surprise addition to a team.

limited:3/5 good one turns are harder to come up with in here


Shino Aburame(Tracking by Insects).  A new Shino, still turn 1 unfortunately.  His effect allows you to place him into any of your battling teams if he was a stand-by ninja during the exchange of jutsu.  Now, with 2/1 stats, this effect won't change much, however he does have growth, which would make him a 3/2, which would be a little more useful.  His effect allows him to make teams of 4+(if you somehow add even more, or added to a team of already 4).  Not bad, not great either, since he has no other effect, it is only useful to give a team 1(2 if growthed) support, or +1 mental power(which is more likely where it could be useful).  In Limited this effect can be quite good because every little bit counts.

Constructed:3/5(Maybe a little more in a mental deck)
