Glacia's Stadium:

Very few strong water Pokemon exist in modified now. Regardless, because of the threat of Cessation Crystal, decks run Windstorm, rather than their own stadiums, and don't have room for cards like this.

Name   : Glacia’s Stadium

Set       : EX Power Keepers

Card#   : 76/108

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 player’s (W) Pokémon (excluding Pokémon-ex) has no Weakness.

 

Right now, Glacia’s Stadium is a bit overshadowed: while getting rid of the Weakness of your Pokémon is good, there are a lot of good Stadiums right now for this to compete with, but if you have a mostly Water deck (that isn’t built around Pokémon-ex) then one or two copies of this is probably a good idea for your deck.  Remember, especially with Scott in your deck, you can do well with a Stadium split (that is running more than one specific Stadium).  I actually prefer splitting it if I can:  it lets you handle a wider variety of decks.  Most Water decks don’t contain Weaknesses to more than one or two Types.  So… you won’t need to eliminate your Weakness most of the time.  But when you do, it’s a life saver.  Sure, your opponent will have a chance to get rid of it before they attack, but a chance is better than no chance.

Glacia’s stadium
Modified: I don’t know of any non-ex water pokemon worth using this card for. 1/5

Unlimited: …no. 1/5

Limited: Works a little better in this format, but what stadium card doesn’t. 3/5

My name is Glacia
My Stadium stops Weakness
All Water Pokemon love me
Except Pokemon Exes

Unlimited: The only really good Water Pokemon that are around here are Blastoise and Suicune Ex. To bad the card says no Exes otherwise this could be great in your Suicune ex Blastoise Deck.

Rating : 1.5/5

Modified: We don’t see many Water Pokemon here cause of MetaNite but with this card Water Pokemon might have a chance. The only downside is that it’s a Stadium card wich mean Windstorm knocks it away.

Rating : 2/5

Limited: This with Glalie is Super nice otherwise kinda useless cause there aren’t many good Water Pokemon in the set.

Rating : 3/5
Alex Bramham Glacia's Stadium

Like Drake's stadium, In order for it to have any use at all (bar countering another stadium) it must stick. If they counter it the turn following, your pok¨¦mon have weakness again. This unreliabilty causes problems in planning the future turns of the game - you cannot tell whether your pok¨¦mon will still be around. The excluding ex clause turns the card into a joke, as they are the ones that will end up taking the most damage from weakness as they have more HP to endure attacks with. As the card must stick to be useful and there are far stronger stadiums to stick in play, there is no appeal to using the card.

Unlimited- Good card to have for a Raindance or Riptide deck to prevent weakness damage. Rating: 2/5

Modified- Other then Ludicargo what other half way decent water decks are out there? None!!!! There are better stadiums out there that Ludicargo can use Rating: 1/5
 
Limited-  This card is only good if you pull a lot of water pokemon or if you play it to knock off another stadium that is in play. Rating: 2/5
