#6 - Shikamaru Nara & Asuma Sarutobi n860:
We are amidst the biggest and strongest squad
cards this games, with this Squad definitely being
one of them. With 5 support on Turn 5, easy
playability, simple BR-winning, and protection from
ninja effect, these guys are definitely noteworthy.
Even at this point in the game, this guy, along with
the S17 Asuma Sarutobi and the S6 Platoon version,
this card is a big hit.
In limited, you cannot run this guy unless you
pull a Shikamaru and an Asuma, and in Set 17, one
only comes as an SR, so no thanks. In unlimited,
this card works very well as one of the most
powerful Squads still and wins games in Earth and
Wind. In the Block format, the power of this card
cannot be denied. An engine to go from behind to
ahead in a couple turns is amazing.
