    Ooh, battle arena decks that are actually in Standard Rotation? Neat. Something for my league folks to buy to get closer to real decks!

    This is actually pretty good. These cards aren't as strong as they were before but still really good for players especially new ones. New players will be able to get some staples that will surely help them get into the game.

    It is a shame that they never came out. I thought it could have been a fun way to get some legacy stuff.

    I’m thinking Ray will be VikaRay, but am I wrong? Also, I severely doubt this, but could there be a Shining Genesect in the Ray deck?

    Nah, it will probably be Lunala. Maybe Lusamine or Lance, but I doubt it. And I doubt Giratina Prism?

    Ray will probably have Shay or Koko. Maybe Latias or Lance.

    I wonder if the GXs will get a special foil pattern like the EXs did in these (diagonal lines instead of vertical). Maybe the Prism Stars will even get a special foil pattern?

    4 Inkay
    4 Malamar
    2 Ultra Necrozma Gx (a full art version of the promo Ultra Necrozma Gx we received in the dragon majesty box.)

    It’s cool that they want to make a gx deck that people can play right away, but if you wanted to run rayquaza you would run no less than 4 rays to accelerate energy. I feel let these are just theme decks with GXs. There are theme deck that could be playable; empoleon, garchomp, charizard. But theme decks, like the battle decks only give you 2 of your main attacker. I wish the would focus on boosting the consistency of these decks and give you 4 of your main attacker, less filler cards and way less energy.
