articuno is great, 2 para attacks with respectable damage. more with healing or scoop effects. really solid aggro-control.
Articuno could be cool for something like Gym Leader Challenge and that's about it. I'm not sure if this is better than the Ancient Trait one, but auto-Paralyzing is pretty strong.
Beautiful Articuno artwork. Let's see if Moltres and Zapdos compete with that. By the way, tonight it will be the full set revealed. :D

The Articuno is interesting, I think if you can find a way to loop the Paralysis attack endlessly it can be very strong (like the Expanded Shock Lock deck). As it is you're going to run out of Scoop Up Nets/Hyper Potions and Energy Recyclers eventually.
Beautiful Articuno artwork! I'm not overly excited about either of the card's effects, but they're decently designed if not especially exciting or good. That Articuno will probably feature in a rogue deck or two due to the auto-paralysis.
Articuno could be insane in expanded with protection cube from flashfire. 70 for 2 W and guaranteed paralasis with no drawbacks? Definitely going to be toying with a deck around this concept!
