    That may be the most niche and pointless energy card designed yet. Wow.

    Draw Energy is awful.
    Heracross would have been niche with DCE/Counter Energy, but DCE is rotating so it's awful.

    It's definitely better than the 3 HP-restoring Energy Cards (Herbal Energy, Potion Energy and Recover Energy.) It's unexciting, but I'm fine with them making cards like this, particularly if Special Energy or Colorless Pokemon get support.

    For Blissey decks? Also, with the loss of Double Colorless Energy, I think it has a use for extra draw power for decks that use attacks that cost more than one Colorless and can't use Triple Acceleration Energy.

    I kind of like Draw Energy

    You will not get as niche, weird, and pointless as Miracle Energy.

    Even when the HP threshold was 120, Potion Energy was garbage. Herbal Energy isn’t much better.

    Heracross is a sick slowpoke/psyduck counter for fire decks, welder/attach = GG

    With Porygon Z this will be an amazing card (the Draw Energy). The Heracross is also interesting considering its all colorless energy and the tag team doesn't have to be the active.

    Why are people hating Draw Energy? I thought the exact opposite when I saw it. It's a free draw in decks that have attackers that use single Colorless attacks, mostly Colorless attacks, or run P-Z for acceleration. In Porygon-Z, it's nuts as a free draw while powering up your Whimsicott, Naganadel-GX, or the Tag Teams that have some colorless costs (MarChamp, EeveeLax, etc). Combining with Super Scoop Up and any potential new card that could replace Acerola or return Energy to the hand (something like Energy Reset or Energy Pouch) would only make this card even better in P-Z decks.

    Draw Energy might compete with Recycle Energy for my Miracle Twin Aegislash deck idea...

    Eh, I'll still be nice to draw energy. Sure, it's a single card and it's only colorless energy, but in decks where the attacker takes one colorless energy to do the job (there shouldn't be too many examples that come off to mind, but there's gotta be at least a couple pokemon that can make use of this kind of energy, arguably the new Tapu Fini, though it might just end up using a basic energy instead), you can make use out of this with CES Magcargo to get what you need. Any card that draws off the top of your deck is noteworthy with the pre-mentioned Magcargo, so I'll keep this card in mind when it comes out.

    No one is going to play Slowduck tag team over here because we won't have Aqua Patch anymore so unless we will get a busted water TTGX that Heracross will remain bad. Also, it can't even one-shot Slowduck omegalul

    Draw Energy+Porygon-Z memes yaaay.

    I only see Draw Energy being good in Shedinja stall only if Reshizard/Blacephalon die after rotation

    What if they made it as a counter to PipStoise TTGX?

    Draw Energy would be pretty cool if none of the following had happened.
    - TCE was printed
    - DCE is rotating.
    Kinda missed your chance there, TPCI.
