Beastly Mage

Sakura Haruno

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 and see!


Limited: (Chibi Promo Version)/5
Constructed: 4/5
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 checked...


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

StormVyper Zera 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.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 3/5
Artwork: Action poses > neutral poses.

  Hey there all, today's card on chibi week is:

Sakura Haruno N-419

  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 there.

  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 here)
Constructed: 3.5/5 (Good ninja for T3 and could prove deadly)

Art: Oh no she found me!!/5
