    That item card could be a great disruptor

    Kangaskhan will be decent in Theme decks (if it makes it). A basic that can swing 120 for 2 energies is pretty good. KOs Thundurus and Rapidash.

    Mountanious Smoke looks nice in control decks but I amnot sure whether it is better than current alternatives such as Giant Bomb and Cursed Shovel.

    Mountainous Smoke is just the Coronavirus Air of the Pokemon world, change my mind.

    • Kangaskhan - ehh. 2
    • Smoke Stick - Great for Prize denial. Its just basically discar one of your opponent's prize cards. If Jirachi * is legal once this came out, this will hate it. Anyways, it can be fit in some decks. (Mill decks are ded) But, Tool Scrapper saw play. As long Tool Scrapper is there, Tools like this will be short lived. 3-4

    Mountainous smoke isn't bad at all. I could see this being played in decks with robo substitute or mill/disruption decks.

    What's wrong with Kawayoo? He's been one of my favorite mainstays since I've started some years back.

    Your opponent has to take prizes in order for this to work, so it won't function with Robo Substitute.

    No, I'm serious. I love Kawayoo's drawings.

    Ooh, alright. For some reason your post to me looked kinda like you were being sarcastic or something. My mistake, sorry about that!

    I love Kawayoo myself-I don't know who my favorite artist out of all of them is though. Shizurow (did a lot of the Level X cards and the NXD/DEX EX cards, hasn't been seen since) and Ryo Ueda (Most of XY's Full Arts) are easily my favorites for 3D renders. I'm always a fan of classic Arita stuff given that I'm a sucker for classics.

    Given how easily decks play from their discard, I'm not really sure what the point of that Smoke card is. Now if it went to the Lost Zone, then maybe you have something, but this seems extremely situational at this point.

    I like Kangaskhan's attack in Expanded, where it can be copied by Mews or Marshadow GX for DCE.

    Would that tool affect Jirachi Prism Star or would Jirachi's Ability override the tool's effect?

    When you start with "ahh yes". It generally means your saying something sarcastically or making fun of an error. I legit thought you were pointing out a typo on the name lol. Just some friendly advice for you.

    Jirachi Prism Star's text:
    As opposed to the tool's text:
    I think we'd have to have an official ruling on this to be sure, but it seems likely that Jirachi's ability would win out there. The ability fires *before* you put it into your hand, and generally it's not required that you actually be able to do the thing that it happens before; it's like the steps are:

    1. Pick up face down prize
    2. Turn it over and look at it
    3. Put it into your hand

    Jirachi's ability fires at (2). Smoke Baton or whatever it's called replaces (3). The "Before you put it into your hand" is there to prevent people from, well, putting it into their hand (and thus making it possible to cheat), not telling you it depends on that ability to do so.

    This Kangaskhan is just colorless Entei (CEC). The numbers are identical. So it fits in non-[R] decks that play Twin, but it doesn't hit for weakness to one shot Zacian, etc. Ok. I didn't play the Entei from CEC, b/c the LOT one was still way more fun, but at least this Kangaskhan won't have any real competition from other Kangaskhan cards.
