Trade Cards (with an eBay type rating system), talk about
discuss upcoming and past tourneys, converse on
the anime &
based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
Today's card is Sakura Haruno [Growing Power]. She's
got some good Chunin Sakura stats, including 3
support, 4 combat, and 3 mental. Her effect is
pretty good too. By discarding one Chakra when she's
sent out to battle you can increase her combat by 2
and decrease her support by 3. That changes her from
a 4/3 to a 6/0! In a Wind deck, you're probably
going to generate more Chakra than you can handle,
so she's a good choice for that kind of deck. Try it
Limited: (Chibi Promo Version)/5
Art: I'll give her 5/5, just because a lady friend
of mine likes her. LOL
N-419 Sakura Haruno: Growing Power Chibi!
Hey all, N. Jolly here. Totally forgot about
reviews yesterday, and would have really liked to
discuss Deidara, but just know that I think he's
awesome, is going to be staple for Earth T5 for a
long time, and is absolutely fabulous!
...ahem, now onto the card for today, Chibi
Sakura-Growing Power. Now this is a card that has
prettty good stats for it's turn, 4/3, 0/2, not bad,
as well as medical, 3 mental, and medicine combat
attrribute. Honestly, she'd be more useful if she
was still weapon, or even Genjutsu, as we were told
all throughout Naruto she was good at...sigh...meh,
complaining won't make this card better, I've
Anyway, her effect is a pretty fun one, allowing you
to discard a chakra when this ninja is sent out to
battle to give her +2/-3, whic means she's your head
ninja. The only problem I have with this effect is
that you have to use it before your opponent picks
their blockers, so if they see this coming, they
probably won't block, which isn't always a bad
thing...but I'd rather have it when battled and
opposed. Still, giving her growth is one of the
golden things I love about the Shippuden cards,
allowing you to play her over your ADP on turn 3,
thus giving you a 5/4 and a deployment...like an on
element Kankuro...still, growth really helps this
card out, as it does with the rest of squad 7.
Constructed: 3.5/5 Great card, but we're getting too
many specialty Sakura's to have a general one like
this be incredible.
Limited: 4/5 Well, since you can't get chibi cards
in limited, I'll be giving them a the rating of the
first word I thought of when I saw this card, so
it's limited review is "Aaaww!"/5
Art: Chibis for the win/5
Sakura Haruno [Growing Power]
A 6 Combat ninja is nothing to sneeze at, and the
cost is really cheap. That's one point shy of
Kankuro, and we all know how hard it can be to get
over his Salamander tricks due to his size. Not only
that, but she transitions seemlessly from head ninja
to back ninja due to her 3 support.
Ah, this Sakura is actually quite useful for
mid-late game but particularly dominant on mid-game.
She has chunnin, female, 3 mental power, growth,
medical and medicine combat attributes, that's quite
a long list of useful stats and she also has (H:4/3,
I:0/2) which isn't so bad at all for a turn 3 ninja.
She's particularly useful in rush decks but mostly
seen in Kunoichi decks because of her great prowess
Her non-valid effect lets you make her a 6/0 ninja
during the turn for the cost of a generic chakra
whenever she's sent out to battle. She's basically a
beatstick for turn 3, and not only that but she has
an arsenal of good jutsus at her disposal, some that
benefit from this effect like Clean Hit. I do
however prefer the promo Sakura [Competitive Spirit]
over this one though, just because she's a
reminiscent of the ever-useful original Zabuza.
However, this Sakura is also an excellent choice.
A useful turn 3 ninja that gets big and puts the
hurt on, not bad but there are better.
Limited: 4.5/5 (Her booster version is incredible
Constructed: 3.5/5 (Good ninja for T3 and could
