    A little weird having the SR Warp Energy in this set instead of Shining Legends, but at least we still get it. Mainly glad to get Counter Energy - that is going to be amazing for non-GX-centric decks (spread especially). Also glad that thus seems to be a much more support-centric set - there's nothing here that leaps off the page as a contender on its own, which is a good thing. Having a lot of more moderate & supportive Pokemon is always better than having a few big hitters - leads to more deck possibilities, and a more open meta.

    Prereleases will also be interesting with this set - lot of good Pokemon for that format, and some interesting match-ups & possibilities... though Bewear will likely be one of the most reliable (along Kartana, if you're really lucky to get it).

    Not a big fan of the prize card manipulation that this set focuses on, the only GX I would consider is Kartana. A little bit disappointing considering the past 3 sets.

    Counter Energy is the only card i am really interested to in this set. Planing on trying to make a deck that focuses on hitting the weakness of my opponent following a similar idea i am using with My Ninja Toolbox. Shining Mew to accelerate (Rainbow, Counter and DCE). After, when hes down, Ninja Boy into one of these depending on the weakness you need:

    Fire: Entei XY AOR (OHKO on Metagross or Solgaleo Gx)
    Lightning: Tapu koko SM-Promo (OHKO on Ho-oH Gx, for the retreat and spread dmg)
    Grass: Shining Genesect SL (OHKO on anything depending what is attached but can also transfer Rainbow or Counter Energy depending if needed)
    Water: Articuno XY RS (OHKO on any competitive Gx or Ex pokemon)
    Fighting: Zygarde XY-Promo (OHKO Darkrai Gx, Tauros Gx, Drampa Gx, Zoroark Gx or Raichu Gx)
    Psychic: Giratina XY-Promo (OHKO on Espeon Gx or Buzzwole Gx and a good counter to Greninja, Trevenant or Zoroark Turbo)
    Darkness: Hoopa Unbound (OHKO on Trevenant and most likely for the ability)

    Those are all basic pokemon's that can OHKO most Gx pokemon with the help of Counter Energy. Might be a bad feeling to always feel behind in prizes but i have hope i can make it work.

    Can Counter Energy provide 2 different types of energy? It says it provides every type of energy but only 2 at a time but could it provide 1 grass and one colourless?
