    Full Art Alolan Vulpix V, Jynx Character Rare from ‘Incandescent Arcana’!

    I think TCPI looked at what he did with Galarian Slowking V and they went, “woah, we didn’t think you’d go THAT hard on this one. We need to contain this to just the regular art box. Here, do Pyukumuku next.”

    Help Are there any cards that "protect" stadiums?

    not many Pokemon can do this. Handsomep mentioned Regice (CES) and Palkia (CEL). But they can only do it if they are in the active. If you go Expanded, there's a Ninetales that can do it--can't remember the set, but it can be on the Bench and you're set. I know this was attempted when...

    New 'V-UNION' Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

    Well now! - Can only summon THAT SPECIFIC V-Union per game (you could theoretically "summon" Mewtwo V-U, Greninja V-U, etc.) - need all 4 pieces in discard pile - no deck building restrictions to V-Union, (you could run 4 of each part). Battle Compressor is being eyeballed as busted...

    'Single Strike Master' & 'Rapid Strike Master' Officially Listed, +UV Cards?

    Morpeko is definitely interesting. It’s a contender for “Sableye replacement” in Expanded you have Rototiller Excadrill, but it requires Fighting Energy and is a Stage 1. It’s already in a viable control deck, it’s just not splashable. Bunnelby can get back 2 of any card for C, but they...

    'Shocking Volt Tackle,' Japan's September Set!

    Man! They're really trying to get an Electrode/card that KOs itself that's balanced.

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    This and UNB Malamar. Boss's Orders a VMAX back. Devo Curse it to hand, use Hypnotic Reign to discard it AND use a big beefy attack for D

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    All I care about is the Celebi. Quick translation program says it's 30X the Energy attached to....you? Them? Both? Amazing Bloom evolves all of whatever is on your Bench. Personally....big oof. IIRC, there's a Shining Celebi coming out soon anyway because of the movie, so I'll hold out...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    There are distinct differences between Jirachi-EX VS Island Challenge Amulet and Shaymin-EX VS Scoop Up Net With Jirachi-EX and Island Challenge Amulet. Both cards were part of an integral hand lock combo. If you were to ban one over the other, there would be balance either way, especially...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    FIGHT! Up to this point, they haven't. Almost all of Pokemon's consistency has been in the form of once-per-turn Supporters, or requiring a massive setup (multiple Zoroark-GX). Shaymin-EX has been sort of weird in Expanded, it's been ok. It's helped combo decks do their combo thing more...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    I want to like Amazing Raikou. It reads like it's on the cusp of great potential. a 1-Prize Pokemon that can put 240 damage ON THE BOARD for nothing more than a wonky attack cost (no "damage to all your Pokemon", no self-mill, no coin toss, no extra conditions. Just "if you have the energy...

    There's a few things. And if you don't want spoilers from Metal Gear Rising, just skip all this: As far as character design, I started with a sort of "template" using Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2 (before we knew more about him from the pre-sequel) and the villains from No More Heroes 1...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    As much as I love the Neo Destiny set, the Shining chase rares from it and the two from Neo Revelations were a massive "miss". Partially because their attacks were usually expensive, hard to fulfill, and/or largely ineffective. It was also difficult to implement them in existing decks because...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    Well now. Amazing Rare is not much more than a rarity designation. I was really hoping for Prism Star 2: Electric Boogaloo. the attack cost is REALLY reminiscent of the old WOTC Shining chase Rares: bizarre costs and energy typing that doesn’t make sense. That said, so far, Jirachi looks...
