EX Holon Phantoms
You can play only one Supporter card each turn. When you
play this card, put it next to your Active Pokémon. When
your turn ends, discard this card.
Discard a card from your hand. If you can’t discard a card
from your hand, you can’t play this card.
Draw 3 cards. If you discarded a Pokémon that has δ on its
card, draw 4 cards instead.
This is a Supporter, specifically a
Supporter. This means it works with Holon Transceiver.
So while it requires a discard, it can be searched out from the
deck or retrieved from the discard. So even if it is similar to
or slightly inferior to another Supporter, this means it still
may be of use.
As I just hinted at, this is similar to several other cards we
already have. It lets you draw three cards at the cost of a
discard. The main downside is that it’s a discard before use,
so you have to have at least one other card in hand to use it.
Not too difficult, but it matters. Like Rocket’s Mission
it rewards you for a specific discard. Not surprising, Holon
Adventurer rewards you with an extra draw (so four instead
of three) if you discarded at Pokémon that has δ on its card.
Another solid draw card, but obviously not for every deck.
Consider it if you’re relying heavily on Pokémon δ or using
Holon Transceiver and related Supporters (the infamous
Engine), and definitely use it if you’re running both. After
all, getting a Pokémon back from the discard is pretty easy, and
cards that due it usually get multiples at the same time. Thus,
with a proper Trainer blend you can make the cost roughly a
third of the normal.
1/5 – Even if you are using the related cards that I mentioned
above, here there are just too many better choices.
3/5 – That’s a general rating: as a whole, decks can take it or
leave it. If you are using related cards as above, the score is
half a point to full point higher.
5/5 – Draw power is incredibly important in Limited, and this
set should have quite a few Pokémon δ.
made card that won’t hurt most decks, but most decks have better
options. It is well suited to two classes of deck as described
in Uses and Combinations: those using the Holon Engine or
just many Pokémon δ.
