Invitiation is definitely one of the strongest Poke-Powers
in modified right now. Working great especially in any deck
that relies on Holon's Castform for energy, it also improves
deck's consistency and has a great lategame attack which
works well with its power, too. A weakness to psychic is the
biggest (and only) downside of this card.

(Also current "best looking player")
Nidoqueen d is quite possibly the best card to come out of
Dragon Frontiers. Being a Delta Pokemon, it has great
synergy with the Holon Engine. It's power Invitation is
almost as good as Pidgeots Quick Search, in certain decks.
Vengence can also end up being an amazing attack late game.
Vulnerable to Energy Removal, but the Power is useful, and
the attack is nice with Double Colorless Energy.
One of the most key cards in the format right now. Nidoqueen
d improves the consistancy big time in any stage 2 setup
deck. Very close to being a legit Pidgeot replacement.
Hard to get out, but obviously a game winner if you do.
Invitation is amazing, and Vengence OHKOs most things.
and ratings are for Modified only.
Modified 3/5 - I think this card is actually quite strong.
However, the requirements to maximize the damage efficiently is
a tad difficult overall, because if you dump away too many
Pokemon, you could haunt yourself later in the game.
Today’s Card Of The Day is…Nidoqueen from Dragon
At first glance, the card doesn’t seam all to special,
but as we look closer we see some potential. Queens poke
power lets you grab any 1 pokemon, no restriction, out
of your deck. Which is great if you are playing a swarm
deck. She has the standard vengeance attack, but when
combined with her power is very reliable. Discard
voltorbs and magnetons as part of you Holon engine. And
you have a quick hitting 90 damage attack.
Although her HP is low, she can abuse the steel energy
giving her an average hp of 120. But psychic weakness is
VERY bad weaknesses to have right now, so don’t expect
much from the queen this season.
Combos: Any deck that benefits from more pokemon in
play, Feraligatr d. comes to mind.
Modified: 3/5 her psychic weakness is going to limit her
use. And for three energy there are better attacks.
Limited: 4/5 grabbing all you pokes is very important if
you are running those 1-1-1 lines. If she is on you
bench, you have the advantage
