Are the A rarity cards alternates this time? (I'm kind of getting antsy for reprints)
Wow, that Medicham looks pretty vulgar.
I can’t totally see chaos tower/ Musharna in expanded
It really doesn't
Stall's main strategy is to win by deck out usually by letting their opponent draw their entire deck into their hand. Playing a card that would shuffle your opponent's hand back into the deck is opposite of what stall wants
Not only that but still decks are very susceptible to hand disruption as they rely on slowing building up their hand of resources to be able to react to their opponents' deck (and do so with slow cards like Lusamine and Steven's Resolve). As it is Let Loose Marshadow is already the bane of stall decks so having another popular hand disruption card in the meta would bed even more bad news
Well, the Gen 5ers got their wish.
Unfeazant looks interesting.
Haxorus looks STELLAR. If you can get past the Stage 2 liability (quite an easy task with A9T), for 3 energy, a Choice Band, and Devoured Field, you’re hitting 160. Another Energy yields 200 damage. This is a weird card, but I’m sure it’ll turn out okay. On a 1 prize, too...
As always, the League Promo reprints look tip-top.
Unfezant has a fun synergy with the triple Colorless energy. Because the Energy is shuffled back into the deck it doesn't get discarded and can be reused. So 90 damage for a single attachment with disruption on a stage 2? Still not good but maybe some weird stall deck makes it work.
Did anyone notice that that axew can't be guzma-d?
Wow, quite a few Gen 5 Pokémon made it to this set. I'm now suspicious that maybe a Gen 5 set was going to be made, but they cancelled it and spread the cards around in other sets. Though we've yet to see the Gen 5 starters.
Was gonna say what if people use Unfezant with triple boost energy to ruin setup and keeping the energy as its shuffled in
It's.. it's perfect.
The first atk on Latias is an ERROR in printing. Because doing damage to the selective target doesn't usually printed the number on it. It leads people to confusion. I am referring to the 20x on the card. Compare like Alolan Exeggutor GX which does dmg to the bench for each energy.... same thing as Latias but applicable to itself. Same thing as Tapu Fini-GX. Spread atks don't put the dmg on the card.
Not to mention Magmortar without Electivire and Alolan Raichu without Raichu.
Kind of disappointed at just one baby Pokémon, but at least it's one that's been forgotten for a while.
Interesting fact: while Munchlax only had four English cards, he had 12 Japanese releases, mainly as promotional cards. Even more interesting, many of these promotional cards were released during the EX series, even though Munchlax is a Gen 4 Pokémon.
Kinda a special case due to a legal case by Israeli magician Uri Geller, who claimed Kadabra was an impersonation of him. Long story.
TR. Its T-something Rare right? True Rare? Team Rare? Transparent Rare? It's Transparent Rare isn't it? Anyways, if the escape Rope and Nest Ball won't be released as alternate art reprints over here; then we might not lose them in the next rotation. Which i believe will be Ultra Prism and on for Standard. And Might be BW Boundaries Crossed and up for Expanded; which i highly doubt it won't be. It's just there's not a lot of people i know who use a lot of the cards in BW Below Boundaries crossed. Except for Zoroark, Sableye, Dark Patch and Super Rod. In my honest and humble opinion, i don't think expanded format would change that much if the rotation does become Boundaries Crossed and up for expanded. Anyways, i can see potential for some of these cards.
They changed Haxorus' Energy types!! It used to be Metal-Fighting, now it's been converted to Metal-Fire.
I wonder why they're intent on changing so many Dragons' Energy types -- they changed Dragonite's too.
(Side note: is it embarrassing I have TCG Energy type combos for all the Dragon Pokemon memorized...)
Awful set, truly awful. The worst thing is that this is most likely it for DCE too.
Reset stamp is the new staple for disruption decks, N only for opponent and it’s an item so doesn’t disrupt your hand or use your supporter card! Puts a lot of emphasis on the draw support Pokemon, so this will be great in Glaceon decks to frustrate Zoroak GX. Great card and great options with it, late game changer
It's been 20 years, has DCE ever not been in a rotation?
It was out of rotation for quite a few years. It was printed first in Base Set (1999) and didn't reappear until Heart Gold Soul Silver (2010). But has been around pretty much ever since.
I think Giratina Garchomp tagteam isgoing to be strong. I think people are focusing too much on the extra effect of the gx attack. Discarding one of you opponents Pokemon is pretty good, and swing for 240 is pretty good too. Viridian forest makes is pretty easy to find a fighting energy and accelerate with Malamar.
