N. Jolly

Shino-True Ace in the Hole

The Good
-Draw power
-Growth

The Bad
-Turn 1
-Situational Draw

Now here's the Naruto Samurai, N. Jolly, with a card that I'm quite unhappy with; Shino(True Ace in the Hole). With stats like 2/1, 0/0, this card does not deserve to be a turn one, despite having a mental of one. And with somewhat of a lackluster effect of drawing a card from the bottom of your deck happening only with growth, you'd need to run three of these to get any benifit. Yeah, that's not worth it, I'll stick with my turn 0 Shino. But when I need drawing that takes up deck space for no reason, I'll think of this Shino.

Constructed-1/5
Limited-1/5

Hey all! Sorry I've been kinda flaky on the reviews, i've had finals and stuff...
Anyways, today's card:

Shino Aburame
1 Turn Cost
1 Mental Power
Growth
2/1 healthy
0/0 injured

[True Ace in the Hole]
If this ninja is put into play by the effect of growth, you may draw the bottom card of your deck.

I feel like doing what everybody else does.

Pros:
Bottom Card of Deck (Could combo amazingly)
Mental Power
Growth

Cons:
Turn Cost
Injured Status
Kinda Weak
Has to be put into play by the effect of growth

So, as you can see, the cons outweigh the pros. It could combo well with some cards that force you to put a card to the bottom of your deck, but otherwise it's not too geat, because of the requirements. for a one turn cost, the stats are too weak, and the effect isn't too great. Just too hard to play.

in limited, it's worse because you have to have multiple shinos. To chancy.

Constructed: 2/5
Limited: 1.5/5
