You can play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).

The Noibat line, Fennekin line, and Helioptile line will also be in the set, but we can’t read the cards because they’re covered:

    Lysandre Prism further strengthens my theory that the Lost Zone will be important soon. I also dig the art on it.

    The Lysandre sleeves look cool, too.
    supermattdab0ss and Sal Fontana like this.
  3. Perfect_Shot Standard sucks, so Ban Expanded


    Well, they made sure Ultra Necrozma GX had a helper when they printed that Malamar...
  4. jessalakasam Floette is love Floette is life


    Zygarde with Bonnie is definitely interesting
  5. KingJellybean Aspiring Trainer


    Lysandre prism star kills night march. This is already shaping up to be a very interesting set.
  6. Lysandre Prism looks soooo good, can't wait to throw that in my Volc list.
    Zygarde-GX is alright, Bonnie is alright, Diancie is nifty, and Psychic energy acceleration finally! (One of my friends was talking about Psychic-type Dynamotor recently too, lmao.)

    I am glad there is yet another counter to Night March. That being said, I am gonna need to worry about my Energy being rocketed out with Lysander ◊. I am still holding hope for Xerneas-GX, even though Diance got turned to a Fighting-type.

    I might look at running Malamar if and when they release Psychic-type Tapu Lele.

    Magic terms:
    For each of your red creatures in play, exile a card from your opponents graveyard. Exile Lysandre.

    Artwork looks really good for Zygarde Gx but, does this mean that Bonnie/Zygarde Gx becomes the new meta for stall/mill decks, sounds fun, not.

    Lysandre will make its way into use just as Cyrus will.
  12. The Ultimate Umbreon To Ultra space and beyond!

    That Lysandre looks promising, and Zygarde will go well with Bonnie. In expanded you could have Sky field for a big bench and then play 4 Bonnies over four turns. Still don't get the point of the other two sets, Dragons storm and Champions road though.
  13. MultX Aspiring Trainer


    Lysandre will boost that heatmor or houndoom ex decks))
  14. MultX Aspiring Trainer


    I really like Malamar. Will do all Necrozmas (except Dusk Mane) a ton of good.
    Bonnie - I actually don't mind repeating THAT GX-attack
    Dianice - Post-rotation booster for Buzzwoles and other fighting-types. Too bad that Guzma-KO destroys this permanently
  15. PieterPie Aspiring Trainer


    Sweet pack arts for SM6, also looks like fighting got a lot better! That zygarde is pretty darn good
  16. Sorpah King of Not Much


    Diancie and Malamar are both super cool, but my heart belongs to that Alolan Exeggutor and its stupid attack. Single prize attackers with cheap attacks that two-shot everything are great. Maybe with Leafeon-GX and Promo Lurantis.

    Zygrade is op n will be used alot. To think about it every turn you can do 280 damage n be immue to gx n ex's
  18. fleshrum April in Kalos...


    oh my god, that malamar is amazing!!!!
  19. Lanstar The Funny Fairy Bug


    Now we have a Psychic rendition of Eelz/Bronzong... Just watch this Malamar be paired with Ultra and Normal Necrozma-GX, as well as all sorts of awesome energy acceleration strategies. Bronzong was so fun in standard while it was legal, and this one should be fun, too!
  20. PlatinumDude Aspiring Trainer


    Can't wait to drop this Lysandre into an expanded Fire deck to kill them Night March/Vespiquen decks.

    Malamar is the new Bronzong, I guess. I think we can safely call a deck that involves Malamar "x + squids" in the same way we called anything that had Eelektrik in it "x + eels".

    Zygarde GX is a good mid/late game addition to Buzzwole I guess. Shame it can't accelerate Strong Energy into itself though, but at least it can use a DCE attachment. The lore for its GX attack should read "Prevent all damage, done to this Pokémon from your opponent's Pokémon EX and Pokémon GX during your opponent's next turn," adapted from Toxapex GX's Total Shelter.
