Sand Shield

Cards that use two specific chakra and don't negate jutsu: bad. Cards that can only be used by one ninja, and a turn 2 Genin at that, worse. If you must have a Gaara/sand deck, use Sand Armor, as it will mostly do the same job for half the chakra.

Constructed: 1/5
Limited: 1.3/5

Sand Shield
Jutsu-Wind
Cost: 2 Wind Chakra

Requirements: Sand Combat attribute

Effect: The user cannot receive any combat damage during this turn.

Super Rare

Yet again, another specific Super Rare, only this time not nearly as worthwhile.

Sand Shield only works with our main man Gaara until they release another Sand user, Shukaku perhaps? Anyway, this jutsu is similar to 8 Trigrams Rotation, which only protects Neji or Hiashi Hyuga from damage. It just tends to be not worth it in the end. There are more useful Jutsu for Gaara to use, such as Sand Coffin.

Constructed 1/5

Limited 2/5 Just because it's a super rare and could net some trade value/$$$

Wednesday's card is Sand Shield, and for all of us Gaara lovers out there( I still want to build a deck around him), this is the Jutsu that saves him from damage. Sand Shield is the original jutsu that reduces damage to its user to 0. It's like 8 Trigrams Palm Rotation Jutsu, only that one is better because more Ninja can use it. What lowers Sand Shield's playablity like all the Sand-based Jutsus is that only Gaara can use it, and the likelihood of having Gaara and a Jutsu like this at the same time is not high. Until Wind has a card like Temptation of Power that lets the player search for Gaara and some card to search for Jutsus, the best Wind can do is play a bunch of stuff that lets you draw cards. Wind does have a lot of stuff to use for card drawing, but in the end, you're relying on luck which doesn't pay off in the end and you won't have as effective of a deck if you have Jutsus everyone can use. Still, this is one of the chase cards for strange people like me who just collect cards based around Gaara.

Limited:1/5(drawing this and Gaara is about as likely to happen as a warm day in Antartica)

Constructed:1.5/5(Maybe you can get lucky enough to draw this and Gaara in a deck built around him, but I from experience know it's unlikely).

Beastly Mage

CotD for 3-28-07

Hey there, Naruto fans. Beastly Mage once more. Today's card is one that be seen in plenty a Gaara-themed deck. While Sand Shield may seem good, it only protects your "Sand" combat attribute ninja, not the team. So, in my book, it's not that good unless you want Gaara to stay alive for a little bit longer.

Ratings:
Constructed: 5/5 in a Gaara deck
Limited: 5/5 if you can draft Gaara
