Beastly Mage

Ino Yamanaka

Today's card is a new version of Ino. This one's quite simple effect-wise. Your opponent's Male Ninjas get -2/-2. Simple enough, IMO. Early game she's quite good. Late game, however, not so good. >.< In a Kunoichi deck she's pretty good. Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
Art: ^_^.5


N. Jolly
N-631 Ino Yamanaka [Enticement]

Hello, hello, hello! N. Jolly is rocking it in the sexy new school super house! Here with yet another card to review for your to read! So read it, and prove to the world that you're not illiterate (There's been rumors...)

Today's card is a new Ino from FR, and it's been seeing a lot of play. As per normal, let's check over it's stats, shall we?

T0 HC0 Earth
Leaf/Genin/Female/Growth/Mental Power: 1
1/1 0/1 CA: Mind

This Ino is a bit stronger than her normal versions (Other than Ino [GWSG]), and having one combat is quite nice with bug tokens and Sakura [ADP] still floating around. Growth is pretty nice too, and being Leaf will help out the new Ninja Academy deck next set. Having Mental Power: 1 isn't too bad either, it makes for a nice play into Shikamaru [F]. And Mind CA...well, that isn't going to help much unless you're trying to deck around it, and without Chunin rank, you won't be able to use any really good jutsu with it. And now, let's go onto her effect:

[Enticement] Your opponent's "Male" Ninja with 2 or less Entrance cost get -2/-0.

Wow, what an early game Ninja! Hitting this on T0 could swing a match in your favor pretty quickly! That'll drop Kiba, Shino, Naruto, and Sasuke (We'll get to the elephant in the room with him shortly) down to either 0 or 1, either of which is a huge drop. A card like this will cut tempo down very quickly as well as halting your opponent's early advances. The only thing that makes this card not great is...Sasuke [CTS]. With Sasuke [CTS], this card's effect becomes a huge hindrance to you. And with Sasuke [CTS] seeing such heavy play, he's a huge card to consider in how effectively you can use Ino [E].

Overall, I like this card, but it's just not good enough yet, especially with Ino [P] in the game.

Constructed:3/5 Has too much working against it
Limited:4/5 A much better early game hit here
Art:-1 to whatever Master Wang gives this, just because she's blond/5
StormVyper Zera Ino Yamanaka [Enticement]

There's a number of really good Turn 0 Ninja in this set, and this is probably one of the best. This game is run by high combat ninja like Sasuke, Naruto, Gaara, and now Choji, and she singlehandedly puts them back in their place for free. Had we not received Sasuke [CTS], I could easily see this card in just about every deck for her ability to tremendously slow down your opponent.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5
Master Wang DAMN! Missed the Platoon review! I love that card. xD Been busy the last couple days...

Ino Yamanaka~Enticement

Another day, another card and lolz another T0 Ino. Oyes!

I myself have a bit of trouble over which Ino I would use in my deck. Almost all of them have good effects and this one is certainly one of the better ones. -2 to EC 2 and less is dynamite! There would not be a single problem if you could hit your tempo with this card. This effect can be put in any deck and shuts down so much tempo. I really love the Kunoichi arch-type theme with it and it'll certainly be having your opponent wish for some more females in their deck what with the stronger T0's being all male except for one little Anko. If you want to have an Ino in your deck, you MUST try a couple games with this one before you make a final choice.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: Have some flowahs....and DIIIIIIIIEEEEE!!! /5
