Create Your Build for Shinbi
Shinbi was announced to join Paragon list of Heroes on Feb-16 with the reveal trailer below and became available on Feb-20 with the .38.0 update. Shinbi is the first and foremost Omeda City’s biggest pop star and in the battlefield of Agora she is a melee assassin with a good potential to deal burst focused damage to a single target. Her main position is the Mid Lane but she can do Jungling as well due to some sustain abilities in her kit.

Paragon Cards for Shinbi
Shinbi is a focused damage dealer so the first thing is Power Cards. Her Basic Attack does not scale very well but her abilities do. Next to use her Ultimate to its full potential Shinbi has to be in a combat for a long time and therefore she needs some sustain. HP and both types or Armor is required.
And lastly to be able to disengage Shinbi needs anti crowd control. E.g. Hunter's Guile.
Shinbi Picks and Counter-picks
Pick Shinbi if you plan split-pushing and force dueling with other heroes. She does this really well. Countering enemy carries is her other strength especially if they don't have much mobility.
Shinbi can be countered by a CC chain since her sustain comes mostly from her ability kit. When stunned she can get bursted down very quickly.
