A great card. Not only is this format filled with d Pokemon with
Poke-Powers, but many d Pokemon can benefit from having no weakness. Decks
like Delta can benefit highly from no weakness, while simultaneously
crippling decks like Metanite.

Another great stadium to consider adding in Mewtric.

5/5

Unlimited:
Few Pokemon d will be played in unlimited. Very weak card.
1/5

Limited:
Definitely worth considering, depending on which weaknesses you have. If
your delta Pokemon are weak to be a popular type, consider running it. But
keep in mind you will give your opponent's delta Pokemon no weakness, and
will not benefit from it if you run many types of Pokemon, as you want to
attack weakness.
3.5/5

Holon Legacy

A nice new Stadium from Dragon Frontiers. Sort of a mix between Ancient Tomb and Battle Frontier, only for Delta Pokemon though. Should be a nice fit in any Delta deck that has a nasty weakness issue, and no Poke-powers. I’m looking at Raichu/Eggs :-D.

Unlimited: 1/5
No Delta Pokemon here. No reason to play it.

Modified: 4/5
With tons of Delta decks running around, this card could very well be the new Battle Frontier. Great against things like Flygon d, Charizard d, Dragonite d, and Metagross d. Expect to see a lot of it as time goes by.

Limited: 3/5
I guess it’s pretty big if you happen to run into a weakness issue against your opponent, but obviously they’re going to get the same benefit. Average card here.

Holon Legacy

Holon Legacy ain't that great. Most of the time you would rather use Battle Frontier or Cursed Stone to hurt Poke-Power decks. True your delta Pokemon don't have any weakness when this is in play, but most players play counterstadiums and/or Windstorms, so it's pretty useless as an anti-weakness card.

Unlimited - Unless Neo Genesis Slowking gets renamed Slowking d, or Base Gastly gets renamed Gastly d, there's no reason to use this. 1/5

Modified - I see no reason to use this over Cursed Stone or BF. 2/5

Limited - Could be pretty interesting. If you're only drafting Dragon Frontiers, practically all the Pokemon in the set are deltas, so no Pokemon will have weakness nor be able to use powers, unless your opponent's lucky enough to have a counter for it. 4/5

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Holon Legacy

Modified 2/5 - It's very hard to keep your stadium in play, thanks to Windstorm. It doesn't matter if you have Golduck delta. But every deck needs stadiums, so if your deck is Weak to a popular type (let's say Psychic), and you don't sacrifice your advantage to your opponent's Weaknesses (e.g. Fire), then this is a decent choice.

If not, then consider other Holon stadiums, such as Holon Ruins or Holon Lake.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Holon Legacy from Dragon Frontiers

In a Metagame that is sure to be ruled by Delta Species this is a card that can hurt and help you and your opponent. First, being able to rid yourself of a weakness in an unfavorable match up. Second, by shutting down poke powers on delta species. The best part is, it works on EXs as well. Cards like Kingdra EX, who has a body and is there for support, won't have to fear the active position.
 
Combos: Raieggs will love this card. But The best combo for it… “This is my Secret”

Ampharos!!! Make all pokemon Delta species, then shut down their powers and rid yourself of weakness. Then smack them with a strong attacker, Exploud ex with no weakness!!!

 

Modified:  3/5 Situational card, you might need to keep your opponent to keep his weakness.

Limited: 3/5 The whole set is delta species so you might need your powers, plus you don’t want to make your opponent stronger. Use with caution.

 

 

Current ebay Value: $??? “Unown” (Plus or minus $? dollars)

Espeon Holon Legacy:

Unlimited: 1/5

Delta might as well not exist in this format because there barely is a delta worth playing here.

Modified: 3/5
Uh oh. It's almost the new Battle Frontier. Almost. When Frontier came out, there was a little card called Pidgeot running rampant in most decks that Frontier shut off. Most decks in the new format seem like they will be running delta but not many seem to be running powers. It stops a few decks like Metanite, Mercury and Gardevoir ex but it would HELP most other delta decks, by removing their weakness. This card is entirely metagame dependent and unlike Battle Frontier, can't be used as an empty stadium just to get rid of opponent's stadiums in some situations, because it would help certain decks by getting rid of their weakness.

People thought this card would make a huge splash on the metagame, but Battle Frontier still reigns as the best disruption stadium to hit the game so far.

Limited: 3.5/5
There are barely any powers in this format but getting rid of weakness could be good in certain situations.

Name   : Holon Legacy

Set       : EX Dragon Frontiers

Card#   : 74

Rarity   : Uncommon

Type    : Trainer

Sub-type: Stadium

Effect Text: This card stays in play when you play it.  Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play.  If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

 

Each Pokémon in play that has δ on its card (both yours and your opponent’s) has no Weakness and can’t use Poké-Powers.

 

Again, I will forgo my normal formatting since it doesn’t really help much with this card.

 

Holon Legacy is the new Stadium in EX Dragon Frontiers.  What makes it so interesting is that it can both help and harm a Pokémon δ: if they have no Poké-Power, its pure benefit, but if they have a Poké-Power, it will probably cripple a deck.

 

So, if you are facing a lot of Pokémon δ focused decks with Poké-Powers (which generally are the ones that see play), then this is a great counter.  Some will find it better than Battle Frontier because they want to use Poké-Powers on their own Darkness, Metal, and/or Colorless-Type Pokémon, or find Cessation Crystal cumbersome.

 

It may sound odd, but even some Pokémon δ decks will want to consider it: there are plenty of end-stage Pokémon that don’t have a Poké-Power and are worth using (or just have one Poké-Power to use when setting up).  For these decks, it is quite logical that getting rid of their Weakness will strengthen the deck.  Raichu δ/Exeggutor δ or whatever it might become after this latest set would be a prime candidate: sure, there was some type matching with Exeggutor δ going on, but the deck works by punishing Poké-Powers and this will just strengthen the match up when Weakness isn’t a factor.  Another thought is an “anti-Poké-Power” deck built around Ampharos δ, Golduck δ, and Holon Legacy.  No, I didn’t think of this on my own: this CotD was late so I saw Muk Man’s idea and fleshed it out by one whole card. ;)

 

Of course, it won’t mean much in Unlimited (Pokémon δ don’t see much play there) and is great in Limited but requires careful play (15 Poké-Powers it can shut down in the set, and only four Pokémon aren’t Pokémon δ).
