Random
Friday - Thought Wave Machine

I've reviewed random cards for sure. But this week has been REALLY random. =\ On average, you will return half a card to your opponents hand. So you DO get to rip up cards in pokemon ;) No... not really. Actually, only 50% of the time will you return an energy... 25% return 2. It really is only a good card if you return 2, and those odds aren't that great. A BAD card.

Basically, this is sickening. Seeing this in a deck might make me simply throw tyrogues at you randomly.

Unlimited - 1/5
Modified - 1/5
MMF - 1/5
Draft - 1/5

This card is amazing against Steelix or Chansey if you're good at getting Heads.

In Modified, it's a form of ER that is allowed so that makes this card a bit special. If a Gatr or a Magcargo is going to kill you next turn anyways, you might as well gamble with Thought Wave Machine.

In Draft, it's a decent last resort card.

All I'm saying is, even though the card rely heavily on flips, it can save you in really tight situations. If your opponent has a monster up and you have no other options, TWM might save you. You might consider TecH-ing one or two in your deck just in case. It MIGHT turn an unfavourable situation around. That's a big MIGHT...

Unlimited Rating: 3/5 (Decent last resort card)
Modified Rating: 3.5/5
Draft Rating: 3/5

Thought wave Machine

This card is kind of an energy removal card.

Having the possibility of setting your opponent back a few turns is pretty good. But the fact it relies on a flip kinda makes it bad. Especially, if the first flip is tails.

In Unlimited, just use Energy Removal and Super Energy Removal.

In Neon and Modified, it just isn't worth it. The draw back on the card is just too much.

It might not be that bad in draft. Because quick first turn attacks aren't that common. And possibly setting your opponent back when you just would have ended your turn is a chance worth taking.

Unlimited-1
Modified-1.5
Neon-1.5
Draft-2

Oh no, Another flip!  this could be the new MMF ER/SER. The only problem it the flip.  This would be a good card in a Dark Vaporeon or Dark G8r deck to put your opponent in an energy crisis.  Other then that, it won't see much use.
 
In Unlimited, most players will use SER instead making this card pretty bad.  Thought wave machine will prolly only be seen in MMF and only a few players will play it.
 
Unlimited 1.5/5
Modified 2/5
MMF 2.5/5
Draft 3/5
