Naruto Uzumaki & Shion

Today's card is the Naruto/Shion squad. This card is one of those cards that makes it worth buying a Lightning Starter Deck. Why?

'Cause Shion is a Starter Deck Exclusive! >.<

This squad allows you to pick a number, any number, when put in play. When your opponent puts a Ninja with that very same number in its Turn Cost, then that Ninja is removed from play. Now, there's more to this than just removing Ninjas from play. There's also the "Super Chakra Rasengan", which we may discuss some time later (but, I'll give you a heads-up: the cool effect comes in play when there's a Priestess in play -.0).

Ratings:

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 3/5

1/20 Naruto & Shion

Today's card is one of the squads I hate playing against the most, Naruto & Shion [Prophecy of Doom]

It has the standard Naruto Characteristics (clone status/oil CA) giving it access to all of Naruto's nasty jutsus; Shion's Characteristics are only useful for Priestess decks, otherwise, they're flat-out useless.

The card has 4/3 healthy and 7/3 injured stats, which is the best stats compared to the other turn 3 squads out there in my opinion.

Of course, the most important thing here is the card's effect which can be a doosy: When it's put in play, you select a number; any ninja your opponent puts in play with the same entrance cost as the number gets RFG'd. This can shut down some of your opponents most powerful ninjas if you know what they're running. Calling out 4/5/6 in water can nuke their Vortex users, prevent Gaara [IP] from seeing the light of day, or eliminate the threat of Itachi and Kakashi at turn 5. The only downside to this card is that you have to give up a Naruto which isn't so bad if he's one of the 0 drops. All around, this is a great squad.

Limited: 4/5 If you get a Naruto Starter, you have both of these ninjas
Constructed: 4.25/5 Sometimes Naruto alone or another squad with Naruto in it is better.
Block: 4.25/5 Block doesn't effect this guy at all currently
