LATIOS*

Modified:
A great addition to decks like Metanite or Sallygross, making troublesome Stage2's an easy OHKO.
4.5/5

Unlimited:
Stage2's are rare. If they're around, they're on the bench.
1/5

Limited:
Fitting the necessary energy to do 50 damage is difficult. 80 HP prevents it from being absolutely terrible.
1.5/5

Latias*

Probably the most playable Star Pokemon in the game at the moment. Decks like Sallygross and Metanite drool over this card, knowing it gives them a huge edge vs each other, and in the mirror match. Definitely worth the space.

Unlimited: 1/5
You wont see any stage 2s here, but you WILL see plenty of Energy Removal for your LPR attack!

Modified: 4/5
A staple in energy manipulation decks. Stage 2’s are very popular here. This card is a must.

Limited: 2/5
Nice first attack, but Shooting Star wont be helping much here.

Latios*

Modified 4/5 - I like Latios* a bit more than Latias*, because it can target both non-ex and ex Pokemon stage 2's. 150 damage is enough to One-Hit KO most of them, and for a discard of 3 Energies, it's a good deal.
 
Kempley05 Latios*

This week we’re reviewing some of the cards that see play in one of the deck most popular decks so far this year - “Metanite”

Today it’s Latios*. Like most stars he’s a tech as opposed to a key part of the structure of your deck. With Holons Pokemon he offers a quick knockout of all but about 3 of the stage 2’s in this year’s format. Great in Metanite, Mewtric and Megalix, an offer of a basic and 3 energy for a stage 2 with a bunch of energy is always a good thing. The decks you can use him in are limited, but in the ones you can he’s great.

Limited – 1/5 Energy cost makes it difficult to run, plus theres a lack of stage 2’s when compared to Modified. Don’t expect to see much of it.

Modified – 4/5 – You can’t use this in any deck, but in the ones you can it’s broken.

Limited – 3/5 - Not many stage 2’s, but 50 a turn with 80 HP for a basic Pokemon is nice, if you run the energy right it’s OK.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Latios* from Deoxys.

The best Shinning pokemon to ever come out, Latios* has 2 great attacks a low retreat cost, and his only drawback is that you can only play with 1 of him. For 1 colorless, you get to do 10 damage and heal anyone of your pokemon in play. That one damage counter may be the difference between a game and a turn 2 donk. His second attack is the end all for any stage 2 pokemon. 150 will ohko any stage 2 in the game except T-TAR. And with Holon castform, electrode, and magneton everywhere, it’s an easy combination. If you can get your hands on one of these guys, he will prove his worth in almost any deck.

 

Combos: Anything that gets multiple energies into play, for a surprise OHKO. Gardy d, Dragonite d. 

 

Modified:  4/5 If you could play more than 1 he’d be perfect

Limited: 2/5 it be very hard to get/keep all the right energy on him.

 

Current ebay Value: $45.50  (Plus or minus $ 4 dollars)

DarkJake Latios*

Finally a good card. Honestly, this guy is very, very, VERY, good. Doing 150 damage to Stage 2s, OHKOing most of them in the process? Where do I sign up? Any energy manipulation deck that can handle Lightning, Psychic, or Grass, should DEFENITELY play this guy! There's really nothing more to say, it's just good, it makes big stage 2 decks like ttar ex δ a JOKE. I loooove this card.

Unlimited: ummm… nope. 1/5

Modified: YES PLEASE! In ANY deck that it CAN be played, it SHOULD be played! A nonex with the ability to OHKO Stage 2s, ex or non; with the use of a Castform…nice. 5/5

Limited: Pretty useful here, ironically crystal shard CAN be drafted, lol. 3.5/5
