Beastly Mage

Shikamaru Nara & Choji Akimichi

This is one nice Squad card. The stats are pretty good, Secret Pills and Mental: 4 included. The effect is what makes this card shine. During the Exchange of Jutsu, you pick one card in your Reinforcement Deck that has the name "Shikamaru Nara" or "Choji Akimichi" (or both), remove it from play, and this two guys get +3/+3 and +3Mental Power. Now, just to make it clear: this is an optional effect, so it can only be used once per turn. It's chainable, and you can chain it to whatever effect your opponent uses. Pretty good in constructed. Try it and see!

Limited: 1/5 (Squads aren't really that useful here most of the time) Constructed: 3/5
Block: 3/5

09/15/10 N-819 Shikamaru Nara & Choji Akimichi [Leaf's Uncovered Elie]
Today's card is one of the best squads in the game, in my opinion. It is essentially a 8/6 MP:7 beast at turn 3. It's sorta like the new Kankuro [Tactician] in some ways; it's an over-powered T3 ninja. Getting out the squad isn't too hard with Shikamaru [Flex] and Choji [Moving], or other variations of those two. There shouldn't be too much trouble executing the effect multiple times. In fact, it is possible to use it 8 times, which is more than enough, with the following set-up:
2 Shikamaru Nara & Choji
3 Shikamaru & Asuma
3 Shikamaru & Kakashi
The only downside for this card is you can't have it out at the same time as the fantaastic Asuma/Shika squad, but you can play whichever one is better for the situation.
Limited: 1/5 Technically possible to play, but you would need at least two copies of this and pull the Super rare Shikamaru to use it.
Unlimited: 4/5
Block: 4/5
