Today's card is the new Jonin Temari from A New
Chronicle. Right off the bat, she's a turn 3 Jonin
with one hand cost. That's somewhat odd for a turn
3, but some don't mind running her. Is she really
worth it? Let's analyze...
She's got 2 Mental rather than 1 as her Genin
versions. Her stats in healthy are comparable to
Kurenai's, though in injured she's only got 1/2.
Now, her effect is quite good, IMO. When she's sent
out to attack you can discard one Chakra and she
gets +1/0. When she's sent out to block you can do
the same thing, but she gets 0/+1. In any position,
be it Head Ninja or Back Ninja, she can be of great
help. But, as with most of her Genin versions, her
effect isn't valid. Still, try it and see.

Hello Naruto players, today we have the poor mans
Kankuro....Temari from set 12.
Temari is only the second ninja to be given jonin on
turn 3, unlike her brother though Temari has hand
cost 1, making her an interesting choice indeed.
Stat wise she is much like Sakura Haruno growing
power from the previous set, except she get's no
negatives and can boost from either the front or the
back of the team, so for 1 chakra, you either get
+1/+0 on the attack, or +0/+1 on the defense. They
also gave her a boost mentaly with mental power 2,
Thing is though, Temari is best used as her turn 1
wind scythe. Because of Shadow Clone Jutsu going off
more and more, you need a jutsu disruptor and wind
scythe is the gold standard for that, add to that
Temari on turn 3 has no growth, well you get the
Overall not a very good Temari, but a solid backup
for filling the jonin role on turn 3. But Wind
Scythe is still the best Temari
Constructed: 2 out of 5. Not bad, but not good.
Limited: 2 out of 5. Hand cost is dicey, Someone
lost a game in draft because he forgot about temaris
Art: 3 out of 5. Not bad, not bad.
Temari [Boldness and Splendor]
The Jonin Temari has some great stats. BUT, she has
a Hand Cost. Hayate has those exact same stats but
without the cost. But, anyway, she's Female, has
Mental, and Jonin, three great stats. If you don't
mind her Hand Cost, she's actually pretty good. If
anything, use her for the picture.
The problem with Temari is that she's outclassed
because of that hand cost. Wind Scythe & Pressure
can both do better. Temari does have a good effect,
though, but since she's always going to be a back
ninja, it's only useful when blocking. Not good, any

[Boldness and Splendor]
This is one Temari that I’m not too fond of. You can
burn a chakra to get +1/0 while attacking or +0/1
while defending. We already have a Temari that gets
a similar boost based on her mental power that is a
turn 1. Besides, I’d much rather nuke a jutsu or
mission card from their hand by running WS or WP
Temari. Given though, this one has jonin rank and 2
mental, making her a viable target for Sakura’s
decision. She keeps decent support stats while
injured at least. Here’s what gets me though. She
has a hand cost? What the heck? Her effect DOES NOT
warrant that. Expect this one to sit in the binder,
people will still use any of the 4 other better
Temari, and then platoon it into Shikimari or
Art: My friend Jeff is in love with Temari and
thinks this pic is sexy.
Somehow I believe this card isn't going to blow you
Temari (Boldness and Splendor) is a great card but
no where near amazing. For starters unlike her
sibling (Kankuro) you have to pay an entrance cost
to take advantage of having a turn 3 jonin on the
field. Then there is her effects, both of which are
not valid. Now her effects are decent, with being a
5 on attack or a 4 on defense but isn't that only
one above the genin temari ( the one that boost it's
support by it's mental power). Along with having a
starting support that equals the mental boost temari
she has no growth in order to place over your other
temari, and trust me if your using temari she will
stay till turn 3. As for her mental power it's the
standard stuff, strategically I would say that the
temari that discards a jutsu from your opponents
hand is better, but it all depends on how your deck
works. I'm personally not into the whole power boost
gambit, mainly due to effectiveness of jutsu's and
the versatility of off/on mental power battles.
Limited: 3/5 (other sand support to help)
