    Wow. I like how Mew V is weirdly better and worse than Mewtwo EX. It does 10 more damage per energy and somehow has 10 more HP. Yet requiring 2 Psychic instead of 2 Colorless (aka attaching a DCE) is wonkier. Plus, I'm not sure, even with the increased damage, if this is all that decent these days. If you pay the minimum of two Psychic, even if your opponent had 4 energies on it, that's 180 damage. Not bad, but with Pokemon VMax having well over 300 HP, is this attack good enough?

    I like it, but I don't think it will see play, unless it's a good counter to something meta, or if there's some energy combo shenanigans. Which is weird to think that it probably won't see play, when Mewtwo EX ruled the game at one point.

    • Clefairy - 3 Geodudes. Forgot to mention it.
    • Venusaur V - Seems nice. It can OHKO Zacian, before we mention Zacian's Grass resistance. It's alright. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Incineroar V - Another option for Welder V. OHKO Zacian before mentioning Zacian's weakness. 4 Geodudes
    • Wailord V - Biggest 2-prized Basic we've got. Too bad it's not on the VMax level. We've got Buff Padding since it got 4 RC. Stall decks will love it. 4-5 Geodudes
    • Pikachu V - 2-prized Circle Circuit with no Electropower, payable atk cost, and its for 2 L energy. 4 Geodudes
    • Mew V - Not the Mew V we've expect. Its a weak version of Mewtwo EX that isn't for CC and a typing that suffers the impact of Post-rotation. It has free retreat, too. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Lucario V - Buzzwole but better. 4 Geodudes
    • Galarian Slowbro V - used for the ability. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Duraludon V - M has good tricks like Metal Saucer and 1-of copy of Perrserker, plus Scizor VMAX runs Duraludon anyway. This one is decent to utilize these tricks. 4 Geodudes
    • Eevee V - KOs Crobat V for 3 energy. 4 Geodudes
    • Altaria - step aside, Decidueye. Altaria is here. 4 Geodudes

    For the coin, will it be different for each deck? Or will it just be a green Eevee for all of the decks? Also, how do you get the playmat?

    I think the problem is that it’s Buzzwole without the support. No beast ring/no diancie prisim/beast energy means that it’s not gonna be hitting nearly as hard as buzzwole ever did, even with the slight buff in damage to it’s attacks

    Good lord, Wailord’s massive. Eevee looks decent to me, Boss’s Orders + Eevee’s attack = 1 dead Dedenne GX/Crobat V, and it can fit into different decks. I like Incineroar, good damage and acceleration. Duraludon also looks pretty nice, Metal has lots of tools to work with. Altaria is Decidueye for non-Grass decks.

    3 energy though? Can't use triple acceloration or twin energy ... Only way to get it powered quickly would be Welder.

    I'm always surprised when Wailord gets a deck like this – ostensibly it's because his HP is always a new high record, but 280 isn't it this time. There's a lot of other marketable water Pokémon.. again, a surprise.

    280 is definitely the record for 2-prize basics at the moment.

    It doesn't matter now that we know it has a 3 retreat cost, but making Switch = Poison is much better than running a stage one line that you have to rely on getting out. Just try testing Toxitricity. The main problem is getting the right Pokémon in your hand at the right time.
