I don't think so. It says "you can ONLY summon this..."

Every Ritual Monster in the game is worded the same way. (Well, they slightly changed the wording for newer ones, but Shinato's ancient.) There are no Ritual Monsters that have to be Ritual Summoned with a specific Ritual Spell.

Ritual Monsters aren't really playable outside of relinquished because you need at least 3 cards to summon them. They are easily destroyed by trap or spell cards.

Just put One or 2 in a cyberangel
My Shinato deck!
I can see this being very good combined with Vennu.
But Mai kept her drops for herself...
If this and tree frog are the only cards I want out of this box. Is it worth spending the gems. I'm thinking maybe just go for 1 and try to combo him with BLS with gateway to chaos. I'm also thinking he could be a waste cuz he looks like a less supported BLS super soldier.

That does sound like a really cool deck to use. If you wont spend the gems for it than i will lol thanks for the idea btw! Shinato/BLS deck in the making..
Well, if Noah come with Manju of ten thousand hand as his level reward it would be bliss.
