Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
Not much to say today, but I
should point out the following errata:
Q. Does Darkness Chant require the owning player to count
either Basics OR Evolutions in the discard pile, or can both
be counted together?
A. The attack is intended to count both Basics AND
Evolutions, not one or the other. (Jun 17, 2004 PUI Rules
K, keep that in mind
peoples. As for the card itself, works well against Meta
and Shiftry… err, kinda well against Shiftry. Anything
that uses special energies sloppily it can mize. Works
pretty well with Crobat and Gorebyss, also.

BANNETTE– We are reviewing cards this
week that will have an impact at Worlds. Umm, I don’t really see
how this card is going to have an impact on the World
Championship. By the time it can really do anything useful, with
only 70 HP it is going to dye. Maybe if it resisted Psychic it
could be decent. But with a weakness to the ever popular Shiftry,
and a resistance to Fighting I really don’t see the power in
Unlimited: 3/5 – OHKO on Sneasal (Candy 1st turn then Double
Rainbow, then Oak, Oak, Oak, to discard enough basics) and a
resistance to Tyrogue. It could be a neat 1st turn kill deck. I
would need to try it out more but it seems like it might work in
this environment due to its low energy costs and Darkness Chant
gets through resistance.
Modified: 2/5 – Like stated before I cant see the power in this
card with only 70 hp and subpar attacks. Yes it places up to 6
damage counters but how quick can you get 6 Pokemon in your
discard in this format?
Limited: 1/5 – Shadow Steal is only dealing 10 with the absence
of special energy cards in HL Draft. And if you have 6 Pokemon
in your discard pile in Limited you have already lost.
