Pojo's Naruto Card of the Day
Naruto Message Board you can:
Trade Cards (with an eBay type rating system), talk about

based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
Today's card is one that's sure to help those
players with a lot of squads integrated to their
decks. Same goes with those who like Platooning. A
New Squad gives you some draw power for that way of
putting Ninjas in play. Somewhat hard to pull off in
Limited, in my experience. But, in Constructed, it's
pretty nice. Try it and see!

M-487 A New Squad
Hello all, it's a good day to be an N. Jolly, as is
every day, because I am awesome. But enough applause
for now, we've got cards to review!
Today's card is one of my favorite of the set, A New
Squad. When I first saw this card, I wasn't
impressed. I thought of it as A Well Planned
Mission, a card with a decent application that
really needed a deck built around it. It was on a
good element, even though I thought it could have
been dual'd with Earth, but overall, I wasn't
impressed. This was a card that I underestimated
A New Squad makes you draw two cards every time you
play a squad or platoon. That with Wind is insane.
Let's go through some of our options, shall we:
Shino/Kiba, Kiba/Aka, Shizune/Tonton/, Shikamaru/Temari,
Temari/Kankuro, Sakura/Sai, and those are just the
on element ones (I consider Kiba/Aka on element).
You could easily find your way into putting Naru/Sai
and Naru/Hina in the deck with minimal effort, and
each one would net you two draws, even more if you
have more than one out.
This is a card that allows Wind to draw even faster
for something that it's going to do anyway. Imagine
on T3 hitting this mission with Kiba, Akamaru, and
Shino on board. First squad out into Kiba/Aka, and
then into Shino/Kiba. You just got four draws off of
one mission, and you can still possibly play Shika/Tem
in the same turn, netting you two more draws!
This is a very solid card for Wind, and I recommend
it in most Wind decks that run more than 3
Constructed:4.5/5 Just incredible draw
Limited:2/5 It really needs to be built around.

A New Squad
Another day, another card and if you thought Wind
was pretty crazy on draw power....they still are.
A New Squad is certainly a force that is to be
reckoned with if utilized correctly. Even if you get
this effect off once, there's barely any drawback to
it, especially if you run the Formation jutsu. Easy
to be abused, as well, especially if Shino/Kiba &
Kiba/Akamaru Squads aren't you're only Squads.
It's better than One Morning and that says enough
