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
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
[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
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
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.
DAMN! Missed the Platoon review! I love that card.
xD Been busy the last couple days...
Another day, another card and lolz another T0 Ino.
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.
Art: Have some flowahs....and DIIIIIIIIEEEEE!!! /5
