Hedge
Ninetales ex

The first attack on this card is broken, no doubt about it. For one colorless, you get to gust one of their men from the bench and burn/confuse it. Broken. The second attack is VEERRRYY boost-able. This card also keeps a nice 90 HP, just under the devastating 100 HP that allows desert ruins to reek havoc upon it. One retreat makes this card High Pressure system-able, and the Vulpix ascension stuff makes this card ffaasstt. All around, here we have a fast, flexible, streamlined, powerful, tricky, shiny and pretty card, that evades Ruins and retreats for free with a little trainer support. Verryy nice. Also note the one errata here that most people know, but just to make sure before Worlds (If Worlds is still not re-scheduled… The hurricanes down there in Florida are nuts… Good Luck to anyone who’s living down there, we’re hopin’ for yas) Feebas was errated and Vulpix was not. ::

* EX Hidden Legends Feebas is receiving errata for its "Ascension" attack to bring it in line with the Japanese version of the card. It should read, "Flip a coin. If heads, search your deck for a card that evolves from Feebas and put it on Feebas. (This counts as evolving Feebas.) Shuffle your deck afterward." Please note that this only affects Feebas; Vulpix's "Ascension" attack does not require a coin flip. (Jul 22, 2004 PUI Rules Team)

Soo, Vulpix now has the better ascension attack… ah well, one more reason why Nex is might quick and all-around strong.
 
Johnny Blaze NINETAILS EX– Ninkin is back. Not really, its still an Ex that is Wobby bait and when Boost energy is rotated out of the Nintendo block this weakens 9Tales Ex. On a side note, I sure hope that Nintendo reprints Boost Energy. There are so many decks that benefit from it: Wailord, SceptEX, GardyEX, WigglyEX, HL Shiftry, Wobby evolved from a Wynaut, 9Tales, etc etc. I was real mad when Recycle Energy was rotated out. Nintendo keep all the special energy cards that you can, it gets people playing other decks.

Back to the review, with the new evolution ruling you can get 9Tales from Vulpix’s Ascension attack and up and running full powered 2nd turn with a Boost energy. Granted 9Tales will be energyless after a 100 damage Fireblast but the flip side is that its 1st attack can run on only 1 Colorless. So he can be ready doing damage and bench manipulation with Intense Glare. 90 Hp for an Ex is kinda low but with its speed and free retreat with a High Pressure System in play this is the way to play it.

Unlimited: 2/5 – Not much here. With Raindance being more popular than ever it is too risky to play Fire in this environment.

Modified: 3/5 – This deck could be a real contender at Worlds with the 1st turn evolution ruling. A 2nd turn 100 is nothing to sneeze at. Team it up with it’s non-Ex counterpart and you have a nasty FireFox to deal with.

Limited: 4/5 – Definitely play it if you get the Vulpix. Unless its stuck in your prizes you can get it out very quickly and dishing out damage in no time.
