    Trainers are a fundamental part of everyone's deck, and as we all know, we're losing many important ones with the new rotation, and sometimes, at least for me, it's hard to keep track of the cards that are legal.

    So as I'm sitting in bed sick, grieving over the fact that I'm missing Hartford regionals right now (i'm so salty), I put together a quick list of Trainers that will be legal post-rotation, organized by which set they were released in.

    I just put down all of the ones that I knew were very popular and ones that I thought might have future potential; let me know if I missed any!

    SM - Unbroken Bonds also contains Energy Spinner. It is the only Item that reliably snags a Basic Energy in Standard, IIRC.

    Here’s some Dragon Majesty stuff you might want to add.

    -Fiery Flint
    -Lance Prism Star

    Also, I think Dusk Stone could have a spot, but that’s up to you. ;)

    Didn't even really think about those ones, but I added them anyway : )

    Thanks! I just thought Fiery Flint could see play in ReshiZard or Blachephalon, and Lance could somehow do something.

    Yeah, Fiery Flint will probably work well with Welder, basically two turns of guaranteed attaches, which would be great early game. I have a feeling pretty much EVERY card with some relation to fire types will see some play in the upcoming format...

    Remember the FA supporters and FA items extend the card's legality.
    For example crushing hammer secret rare from ultra prism and FA lusamine from, again, ultra prism

    Oh yeah, I'll add them all in, but I didn't add them at first just because of the difficulty to get them $$$

    You can use other ones.
    Because lusamine FA does the same thing as the crimson invasion lusamine, you can use a crimson invasion one instead of the expensive FA.
