Card Trivia

 Shien translated means Blue flame. Shōgun is a military rank and historical title in Japan.
The Shien card series was most likely inspired by the great Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga. He shares almost all of the traits that are popularly associated with Nobunaga and looks exactly like the Samurai Warriors depiction of Nobunaga.
This monster appears in the artworks of Gozen Match, Blind Spot Strike, Stand-Off, Face-Off, Evenly Matched and Barrier Ninjitsu Art of Hazy Transfer.
White Ninja probably tries to assassinate Shien as seen in Blind Spot Strike.
Shadow Six Samurai - Rihan appears in the artwork of Shadow Art of the Six Samurai impersonating this monster.

OCG Rulings

Continuous Spell and Trap Cards can be used.
