Sealing Jutsu: Breaking the Lion's Roar

Today's card is one that, up to now, only Granny Chiyo and Sasori can use. It requires the user to be a Manipulation Ninja with a turn cost of 4 or more. Requirements aside, this is a good Jutsu. To remove one Ninja battling against the user from play, and then remove all the copies of that Ninja from your opponent's deck... it's simply crazy! If you run a Puppet deck, this could be a good option for Removal Jutsus. Try it and see!

J-502 Sealing Barrier: Breaking the Lion's Roar

Hurray for today, N. Jolly has Skype! And my name on it is n.jolly, so hit me up if you are on there, I'm generally up for fun! And on a related note, I'm also afraid of Skype in the same way that I am afraid of bears.

Today's card is one of the SRs out of the new set, Sealing Barrier: Breaking the Lion's Roar. Unlike some people, I genuinely like this card. It's cost is Wind/Wind/Wind and it requires a manipulation ninja of T4 or higher, which means it's only users are Chiyo, Sasori, and Temari/Kankuro, which isn't a bad line up that Wind is probably already running. The cost is pretty expensive though, making it vulnerable to Gigantic Fan, which is being ran in threes in any deck with Wind.

It's effect though is very powerful. It targets one ninja target battling the user, and it removes it from the game. But after it does that, you can search your opponent's deck and remove all copies of it from the game. That right there can wreck up a theme deck, but the problem is, we already have Sealing Barrier for that. It's a nice removal jutsu for Wind, which is nice, but it's costed too high to help out the element.

I could see running this in a puppet deck, but Chiyo's jutsu has a better cost and for the most part a better (if not more risky) effect that can be tutor'd off of her effect, and that's just too good to ignore.

Constructed:2/5 Just not as good as it could be.
Limited:1/5 Not really any users here...

StormVyper Zera Sealing Jutsu: Breaking the Lion's Roar

This card would be fantastic if it weren't so strict. There's like, what, 3 or 4 Ninja that are capable of using this, but it's pretty harsh, especially if you're going against those decks built around one ninja. My biggest problem with this card, aside from the Requirements is the fact that your opponent can still keep any copies of that Ninja they may have in their hand. It kinda sucks to Lion's Roar your opponent's Gaara IP just to have them play another from their hand.

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 2/5

Master Wang Sealing Jutsu: Breaking the Lion's Roar

Another day, another card and boy do we ever love getting super rares for puppets...no sarcasm...

Lion's Roar is essentially the demi-Sealing Barrier in jutsu form and to be honest, it seems more accessible. Only three we know of can use this jutsu: Chiyo, Sasori, and Temari & Kankuro Platoon. This jutsu is pretty sweet to say the least. It really does punish your opponent, especially when they don't have a jutsu to counter it.

Granted the targeting isn't top notch, but the RFG effect is certainly more than redeeming. The cost though....*sigh* Just one chakra too much in my opinion. I mean, its cost is more demanding than the other recent three jutsu's that were released that other Manipulation/Sasori can use. Overall, this one might not see much play considering the other jutsu's out there that cost less and aren't as specific in the cost. I just wish it could've been two wind instead of three.

Limited: 2/5 *good luck pulling an uncommon Chiyo or an unplayable Sasori*
Constructed: 3/5
Art: 'the heck is going on beneath that seal? o.O;; /5
