    Greninja & Zoroark with incineroar gx from team up looks scary. Also Lucario & Melmetal maybe a one of in melmetal gx deck for that gx attack. Then play halla to get 7 cards get that gx attack as soon as you can these tag teams all look very competetive

    I predict the top tier decks from this set will be Charizard and Reshiram, Greninja Zoroark, Gardy, and Buzzmosa

    I still think someone's gonna break this card for it's GX attack. It seems pretty theoretical, but just using it's GX attack, next turn Acerola it back to hand, discard it to never play it again, and play down a bunch of prize one metal attackers under Shrine of Punishment (I don't think there's too many though, I just know the promo Dusk Mane Necrozma is gonna be one of them), add ways to find consistency to the deck (probably TEU Jirachi) and this deck might be super good. Zapdos/Jirachi will probably struggle to find answers to get proper KOs, you could easily prize-trade with PikaRom, Shrines will be really good against Zoroark decks, the works.

    Or you could do what Japan did and just make a stall deck out of it. :p

    Beast Game is back, everyone! :D Who’s ready for an INSTANT META SHATTER (♢♢♢♢<(4.5 Prism Stars))
    For some reason, I REALLY want to play Reshizard. (♢♢♢♢<)
    Heh, Muk Memes is here! Nice to see. (♢♢♢<)
    Marchamp is likely the worst one here. Sad. (♢♢)
    Greninjark/Incineroar is most likely going to be GAMEBREAKING. Within 3(?) turns you’re doing 270! 300 with a Band, and with all the Scar Charging you’re going to be doing, Wailkarp won’t be able to keep up. Oh, plus Darkrai <>. (♢♢♢♢♢)
    Lucarital... is the GX worth
    - A: your GX attack (answer is yes)
    - B: your attack for the turn (answer is yes only on first turn going second) (♢♢♢♢)
    Gardeon powers up good Fairies, like Gardevoir, and... uh... nothing else? Whatever. For the one trick pony it is, it does that trick very well. (♢♢♢)

    Overall, I’m pleased and can’t wait for this set to come out in just under a month!

    looking forward to gardyXsylveon but over all i dislike the style of these cards. the yellow is ugly and covers too much of the card, that small name font, although necessary, looks awful. i havent hated a base design yet but these tag teams are just over stuffed with unnecessary brackets and etc.

    Here is to hoping that Greninja zoroark will make Darkrai gx playable, and boost the value of my 6 rainbow rares :p

    Sylveon Gardevoir appears underwhelming upon first impression but is remarkably good when put into practice. Pretty much it is a basic Metagross GX, with a super oppressive GX attack and if I were to rank this set of tag team it would probably second and no worse than 3rd.

    With zoroninja, can you discard 2 incineroar gx’s and then use zoroninja’s gx attach to bring the stage two into the bench?

    The secondary effect of Slyvevoir's GX attack is going to be very annoying, really not looking forward to this card.

    Reshizard is dumb af but because of Kiawe it's going to see play and probably success as well.

    Zoroninja is probably the most balanced out of these - it has a cheap attack cost and the way its attack functions allows you to spread your energies around the board so you don't have to commit everything to a 3-prize attacker - but fighting weakness really hurts it as it has no built in "I win button" like Pikarom or Sylvevoir.

    Melmetal&Lucario is about as dumb as Reshizard, just the other way around.

    Marchamp is a nice tech for decks with rainbow energy+counter gain or just for Expanded fighting decks.

    The art on Buzzmosa is my absolute favourite out of all the tag team GX cards released so far and I'd love to own a poster-size version of just the illustration alone. Not sure if it's going to be that good anymore because of fire.

    The Muks are lolpoison meme.

    Wait a minute the set goes up to 214 meaning that the base set is as big as lost thunder. This means depending on how many Secret rates are in the set, Unbroken Bonds might be a bigger set than lost thunder.

    However, i think it may be a little too overrated currently. There are(right now) many bad matchups for a deck made around this card. The set up would have to be preferably early-game. There would have to be at least 2 Dark Patches and at least 1 Battle Compressor in the starting hand and the desired Pokemon in the active position and bench area. I do see some playability though. It would work if the deck is consistent enough. However, there is some if not a lot of dark support in expanded. Which would be: Dark patch, both Darkrai EXs, and brutal bash Zoroark. But that's just my opinion. The illustration is really awesome though.

    The artwork on greninja / zoroark is really cool! A little scared charizard / reshiram will destroy my hopes of playing decidueye for as long as I can.

    Not sure if I like the approach of how they make new cards have more text, basically 60% of card artwork is covered with text.

    For lucario and melmetal, would a dce fulfill the extra energy requirement for the additional effect? Or does it have to be a separate energy card?
