Deoxys

Unlimited - Can be powered up with a DCE so it's immune to ER/SER, but still 60 damage is pretty weak, and so is 70 HP. 1/5

Modified - After doing Crystal Laser you can switch with another Deoxys and hit for 40 more, but all of the Deoxys have pretty weak attacks, so I don't think this card cuts the cheese. Besides after doing Crystal Laser the first time he'll probably be KOed the next turn. 1/5

Limited - Here it seems better because stuff usually does low damage in this format, so you can keep hitting for 60 for maybe 2-4 turns. An 70 HP basic with a colorless attack, not bad. 4/5

Deoxys delta

Unlimited 1/5 - This Basic doesn't do enough damage or have enough utility compared to other powerhouse Basics - Cleffa, Sneasel, etc.

Modified 1/5 - This card just doesn't work. Although you could theoretically get it out turn 2, 60 at turn 3 for a KO, you should think long-term. 70 HP is not too attractive either, because it can easily get One-Hit KO'd, and many decks can do it by turn 3.

Limited 3.5/5 - I am not sure about the rest of the cards yet. However, I "predict" that I can KO every other turn with Deoxys delta, so it's not too bad.

Deoxys:

A neat little card. The effect of Crystal Laser is interesting because you could Form Change on the following turn, then do 40 more damage with your choice of Deoxys. The Normal-type Deoxys from the Deoxys set has a Link Blast attack which can hit for 80 on the following turn, but overall, the Deoxys will get overpowered by their Stage1's or Stage2's and is therefore unplayable.

While a neat combo, the card is definitely subpar as far I'm concerned, especially because none of the other Deoxys are playable either.

I'd rate it a 1.5/5 in modified.

(In unlimited, psychic resistance still exists in Neo: Genesis Sneasel & Murkrow, and makes Deoxys a joke. 1/5.)

As for limited, I acutally like it. A strong basic is always nice in draft, because you do not have to rely on hoping to draft the corresponding evolutions in your next few packs.  4/5

Unlimited: You could us it with Double Colorless energy to do 60 damage on the second turn. There are plenty of other basics that can make good use of Double Colorless Energy, like Scyther [BS] and Erika’s Jigglypuff. 1.6/5

Modified: With the release of Holon Phantom, there will be 8 Deoxys in Modified, giving you plenty of ways to use the “Form Change” Poké-Power. I don’t see any really game-breaking combos. You could use this attack and then use “Form Change” to bring out a Deoxys on turn three, whose attack requires three energy (and its attack would now do 40 more damage). All Deoxys have less than 80 HP, making them easy to KO by turn three. In addition, having less than 80 HP makes its Poké-Power apt to be shut down by Mt. Moon. 2/5

Limited: In a slow format like this one, you could end up doing a lot of damage, depending on how many turns you can keep Deoxys alive. 4/5

Deoxys [delta species]

Unlimited:
a big no-no here, 20 damage for 2 energy is incredibly bad, considering we already have sneasel to do an average 80 for 2. the effect of the attack is kind of bad too because a lot of pokemon have free retreat or other ways to get rid of the +40 next turn effect.
1/5

Modified:
I find the power interesting, just because the delta species deoxys's all are different types of pokemon, so you can search for the deoxys your opponent is weak for. the only problem is that the deoxys are generally overpowered by any stage 2. or big ex. the attack isn't really interesting though, you could donk someone, but I wouldn't rely on that to happen. (And I'd rather wouldn't win that way either)
2/5

Limited:
Really nice, 70 HP basic with an colorless attack that DOES some pretty good damage after the first time. also the power helps a tiny bit.
4/5

My name is Deoxys
I might look strange
I can switch color
With my Form Change

Unlimited: Works with DC but then it’s just to weak. And also weak to psychic.

Not a huge problem but still a problem.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: I don’t know maybe the new Deoxys will combo with it or something but on it’s own doesn’t make it.

Rating : 2/5

Limited: Could be nice. Needs just two energy so fast attack. And if you have more switch to

Whatever you need.

Rating : 3/5
