Today we take a look at the two Starter Super Rares that can be found in ”Ino-Shika-Cho” Theme Deck and “Sand Sibling” Theme Deck. First up is ”Kankuro, Temari, & Gaara of the Desert (N-1487)”! This particular “Squad” Ninja card marks the return of Tri-Squad Ninja cards which haven’t been seen since Series 14 “Emerging Alliance”.
Tri-Squad Ninjas work the same as normal “Squad” Ninjas, to play them you must select Ninja(s) that include those listed in its name from your Village and remove them from the game. At the cost of these staple Wind Ninjas you gain a Turn 4 Squad Ninja with unrivaled power and ability.
First off this Tri-Squad has all the Combat Attributes of the Ninjas that form it, as well as the Characteristics of the “Genin” Ninjas depicted on it. This Ninja has a rare Combat value of 7 which makes it an ideal Head Ninja in a Symbol renown for their Support Ninjas (Tsunade being a prominent exception).
However, Power can only get you so far, the best part of this Tri-Squad Ninja are its 2 effects. The first effect applies whenever this Squad Attacks, and quickly injured a Ninja with an Entrance cost lower than it. Turn 3 and lower Ninjas better beware!
The second effect on this striking Ninja applies while defending, and limits the Ninjas of Jutsus your opponent can play to just 1. With Wind’s array of powerful negation Jutsus your opponent will be struggling to deal with this awesome Ninja each and every turn.
So pick up the Series 25 “Sand Sibling” Theme Deck and the Siblings from the Sand will grant your Deck their immeasurable strength as well!
