Beast Ring from SM5+!

A new Item card named Beast Ring will debut in SM5+ Ultra Force! The set will release in Japan on January 19th.

Beast Ring – Trainer
Item

You may only play this card when your opponent has 3 or 4 Prize cards remaining.

Search your deck for up 2 Basic Energy, reveal them, and attach them to 1 of your Ultra Beast Pokemon. Then, shuffle your deck.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

Thanks goes to Franco T. for the translation!

    The card isn't broken. Reminds me a lot of the turn mechanic based Pain cards in the Naruto TCG. I hope they don't break these prize based cards.

    This is certainly interesting for celesteela and buzzwole but really situational.

    Did you hear that? That's the sound of Guzzlord-GX becoming a real deck.

    Though obviously the best use for this is to attach them to a Nihilego-GX and put your opponent back to 6 prizes.

    • Beast Ring - Hmmm! Seems good for Buzzwole for fast set up to a GX while attaching an Energy to a non-GX. To Naganadel, mostly the first atk is the main priority. Guzzlord, never won big tournaments. So this is incredibly good on both Buzzwole and Naganadel. I love it. 3-4 Geodudes considering the fact that it can be played in the mid game after receiving a GX or GX+non-GX or 3 non-GX KO.
    EDIT: Okay, its a 5-Geodude card. It's a buffed Max Elixir for a UB and can be use 4 of them in one turn. Hek yeh!

    Beast Ring sounds like an amazing mid-game energy acceleration option.

    hmm Milotic FLF or Electrode EVO combined with this for turn 2 energy accel. go from 1-2 energy to 16 max, 2 for reg attach + 3 for each milotic (3x2) + 2 for each beast ring (2x4), for expanded and 14 for standard.

    realistically you're more likely to get 2 for reg attach, 4 for electrode and 4 from the beast rings so 10 which is still all you'd need for rest of game typically.

    Wow with 4 item cards that would potentially be 8 energy attachment. Plus with Zoroark-GX and puzzle of of time that number increase, of course that is assuming the energy in deck plus having the right cards in hand etc...but overall a very useful and I think 3-4 of in any deck with multiple ultra beasts.

    Think it can be used in accelerating more energy in energy dependant decks with attacks based on energy attachment such as in Primarina-GX deck or Raichu-GX?

    It can also be used early game to quickly set up buzzwole, guzzlord

    Xurkitree fits well with Raichu; however currently (don’t think we will see water ultra beast either in the future) there is not a good fit for Primarina...Necrozma works but only for gx attack.

    Early game only works if you quickly give up two prize cards though since item can’t be used unless opponent has 3-4 prize cards left

    In order to use it your opponent has to have either three or four prize cards remaining, Thus there is a smaller window for using this card.

    They are really pushing for the use of an Ultra Beast deck. I’m not complaining now but just hoping UB’s don’t become broken like Gardy was with all this support they are getting (although I’m not sure if being as broken as Gardy is possible)

    I mean they really aren't getting any more support than plasma pokemon were and aside from them needed to change the start game rules for Plasma Lugia those weren't really broken.

    Or not, it requires your opponent to have 3-4 prize cards remaining.

    Boy I'm finally glad that buzzswole has finally stopped going up, nevermind it's still going up.

    Trust me, the next card leaked from this set will be Xurkitree with an ability that boosts the damage of your UBs by 10. Reply to this message when I predict correctly.
