    Dude, milling is becoming a legitimate deck option. Right now it looks like a PITA because Charizard GX and Rhyperior are both Stage 2s, but at this point there's gotta be a Durant card right around the corner that snaps everything into place and makes it a viable strategy.
     
  3. @Mr. Rhyperior - get over here quick! 5 Geodudes, surely :eek:

    Honestly though, Rhyperior looks decent - not amazing - but decent. The Ability, used multiple times throughout the game, will be annoying. It all depends on the partner you run it with though.

    I wonder where Rhydon is?

    It seems too slow for a mill deck. A powerful attack but not attacking every other turn hurts it. Could combo with float stone to switch to another attacker-Lycanroc or Zygarde maybe?

    This wouldn't be bad at all if the new Rhydon ends up being a decent attacker. That way, using Devolution Spray wouldn't be much of a problem.

    Maybe Rhydon will be the actual playable card?

    Actually, it's a direct update to a previous Rhyperior.

    Incidentally, I think that Rhyhorn may have my favourite art of any card. Certainly my favourite in a while at any rate. Not sure why, but I like it a lot. Maybe we just don't get enough happy Rhyhorn.
