Beastly Mage

Ino Yamanaka
Today's card is the Ninja Dog deck's worst nightmare. This version of Ino stops any player from putting in play more than one Ninja per turn. So, Ninja Dog decks are stopped by this. Note that it says "put in play", so doing Growth on more than one Ninja per turn would be stopped as well. It stops your opponent from swarming, though it affects you as well. Just for that she makes good sideboard material against Dogs. But, she also has an effect that would make her splashable. She negates the effect of the opposing Head Ninjas. It's not just the Head Ninja battling her team, but ALL of your opponent's Head Ninjas (including the single ones). This is a pretty good effect (and it's Valid). She stops the swarms and abusive Head Ninjas, so she's good all around. Try it and see!
Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 3/5 (Anti-Dog sideboard: 3.5/5)
Block: 3.5/5 (Anti-Dog sideboard: 4/5)
Art: I'm guessing she's a cat person.../5



N-1039 Ino Yamanaka [Playful]



The next card in Female Week is the other playful ninja, Ino. Although she shares the same effect name as yesterday's Hinata, she does not have any special synergy with her like the [True Allies] set has.


This iteration of Ino has her standard turn two stats and characteristic, albeit one more Mental Power. Her first effect is a nice anti-rush effect that is useful for Puppy hate, and it can be useful in decks that don't use many squads or reinforcements. Her second effect is a simple negation effect that can be quite troublesome to your opponent in some situations. While it can be nearly devastating to certain ninjas, it may absolutely nothing to other ninjas.


This Ino will probably be side-board material against puppies along with Gamaken. She may see play in main decks that won't be hampered down terribly by her first effect.


Limited: 2.5/5

Constructed: 3/5

Block: 3/5
