Sakura Haruno [Control of Chakra]

Today's card is an interesting one, especially since I use it. Even though my deck is mostly Water/Fire it has a few other elements in it. This card helps take care of, let's say, Earth and Wind Chakras placed by Growth effects. This little jewel of a card helps in such cases. Try it and see.

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: (Multi-Color deck) 4/5
Art: 4/5

Today's card is Sakura Haruno [Control of Chakra] I like how she's a 0-drop with a whopping 3 Mental Power (by "Mental", I mean she's mental, to the power of 3), but can she live up to it? No. Her effect is kinda pointless. During the Mission Phase, you can swap 2 cards in your Chakra Area with 2 in your discard.
First of all, not all that many cards get into the discard pile, and you aren't always gonna have 2 or more Chakra out. The chances that they'll be elements you don't want, and ones you do want are discarded. Not very likely, but it can work well with discard-dependant cards, but overall, those aren't very good.

2 all around.
Art: Why's she so happy!? Didn't she just play with that paper airplane a bit rough?/5 Next time: A slightly older, much dumber, not-so-attractive one...

Alrighty, we shall take a look at a common Sakura that has some potential.
She's turn 0 with growth and has 1 support in both healthy and injured status.
Anyways, her effect allows you to exchange to cards from your discard pile with 2 cards in your chakra. Sometimes this can be beneficial especially if you hit the right jutsu, but honestly, Sakura won't be seeing any type of action at all due to the fact of the dominating turn 0's of Ino, Sasuke, Choji, and so forth making this Sakura obsolete. Also her effect is not valid, so meh, I wouldn't use her. She has potential though.

My ratings:

Constructed: 1.9/5

Limited: 2.75/5

At best, it is above average. It could help in dual/tri element decks (it took me a few minutes to think of the word element as I play too many other card games). Getting back 2 chakra for 2 chakra is generally a 1-1 swap, with this card being a DECENT ninja if used right. You could swap 2 earth for 2 fire and then use Divination (although why the heck wouild you run this in a fire/earth deck, unless it is fire/earth/wind)? That was just an example, there are other ways of looking at it. Really, we see that it makes 2 chakra any element you want it to be, as long as you have 2 of that element in the discard pile.
 
Constructed: 3.5/5
Limited: 4.3/5 (you never know when you need chakra for jutsu)
