    This Mandibuzz BREAK is useless as heck. Also, the more I watch Alakazam-EX's artwork, the more I love it!

    By the time the set is released I think M Alakazam will be very playable, they will make this one work. It's been a long time since we have seen an Alakazam card, it better be awesome :) I like it when a card doesn't seem that awesome at first but still has a big impact, I am hoping for this scenario.

    I like how Mandibuzz BREAK looks. Will be a nice one to add to my collection.

    M Alakazam + Devolution Spray + Bats = RIP Night March/Vespiqueen.

    Yea... I thought they might make a better one though. Maybe along the lines of 'once per turn discard up to three cards from your hand and place that many damage counters on your opponents pokemon' that would be pretty nice and make this really cool card even cooler. But for now, we just have dimension Valley and magma base to help grandpa...

    Wow, Grumpig is clearly meant to beat up on Joltik. If only there was a way to also beat Pumpkaboo ...

    It is not useless by any means the attack cost is less and is powerful discarding tools is really important in some cases

    Devolution spray will be awesome. I was looking for something to pair with aegislash from breakpoint and now know that's forretress.

    It seems as if the Wigglytuff line and Exploud line will make an appearance in this set as well, as they are featured in Grumpig's artwork with Minccino.

    Actually, grumpig has another nasty use: Shaymin EX. You don't want those damaged and on your bench.

    Well, Forretress spam is now a thing. I'm gonna have some fun with this...

    Mandibuzz Break is also interesting. I think the effectiveness of the card will depend on A. what normal Mandibuzz can do and B. how popular Garbodor ends up becoming.

    That art is also really creepy. Is it grinning at me ?!

    LOL Grumpig's first attack. It's all over for Nightmarch, if you're able to keep doing that to your opponent's Joltiks. IT'S ALL OGRE NOW!

    And with this hate, m friend still plays night March! he's says he's got a trick up his sleeve.

    OOOOOHHH!! I just realized! bats with Mandibuzz break! Pretty cool combo! And unless they got another tool for Garbodor! You can use bats!

    Lucario... A stage 1 that does 50 damage for 1 Energy.
    I remember Dugtrio doing something along the same lines, but was better due to the modification damage and weakness

    Would it kill them to make a playable Garchomp EX card once in a while?

    I also think it would be odd for one side of the stadium to have 1 more condition than the other.

    Why is the Garchomp so bad? Tyrantrum showed promos don't have to be trash. Hyper Beam should do 150 damage since it costs 4 energy. Come on.

    Mandibuzz BREAK looks alright. Discarding all tools could set anyone including Entei back a turn. Eco Arm might have more use now outside of Entei.

    Devolution spray? Gosh...say bye, bye energy. Along with Crobat, Milotic and Crawdawnt get a big boost too.

    I'm going to crack up when Fortress and M Gallade take all the golbats + AlaKazam on round 2 turn 1 because of devolution spray. Without Night March, M Gallade will be a fun casual play deck.

    Just saying Devolution Spray was a problem in expanded why do you think shiftry got banned.
