    Does the game need more of Aegislash?

    we need more steel and less psychic since every set gets almost no steel but tons of psychic

    Still, psychic lacks an archetype and decent support. Steel has everything already, 2 sweeper Pokemon (Dialga and MAggron), energy acceleration, great support Pokemon and attackers, EXLock, Special Energy Lock... I should also remind you that heavy ball is reprinted. (= free Aegislash and Tyrantrum EX, as well as bronzong)

    :)

    kawayoo has been on point with his art recently. Really happy to see anything from him nowadays.
     
  7. Hey I happen to like the fact that we're getting a psychic (ghost) line for Honedge (and presumably Doublade and Aegislash) instead of the a third steel line up of them. I mean we waited how long for the psychic Tentacruel line?

    I hope we actually get two psychic Aegislash, one for each form.

    The artwork is astounding. Honedge looks ticked.

    @Otaku
    I understand your concerns, To be honest I'm not excited about Manaphy EX in the slightest, I rarely play water decks. I dot like to discus about upcoming cards and create different kind of views.

    ...Perhaps I should play Mega-Latios EX with target Whistle, doesn't sound that bad now I think about it.

    I do understand that; frankly what I enjoy most about the Pokémon TCG is discussing tactics, analyzing cards and then writing about it all. ;)

    Hmmm...Creativity is becoming a bit absurd in the pokemon world. I think we should get a pool together to see if by the end of 2016 worlds Virbank and Laser will be reprinted. It's starting to feel like a bad inside joke I'm not aware of where everything is trapped in the twilight zone.

    Witness Honedge's notorius "The Sword and the Stone" lure, waiting to drain someone's life force who is so egotistical enough to believe in it. v_v

    I find myself....disappointed by these new cards. None of them entice me to play them or seem really interesting at all.

    Thems the breaks i guess.

    Oh... wow. What broken Tool support (or Tool counters D: ) do they have in this set? Between Garbodor, Suicune and things like the Burst Balloon that will be scary if unable to be removed in some way... there is a lot of hints being dropped in regards to tools.
