Yes,another short review for another
decent card. Friday, I will make a regular review. The
recent cards (including this card) we have reviewed do
not require long reviews since they do one thing.
This card allows all basic pokemon
(including basic Lv. X pokemon) in play gain +20 Maximum
HP. This card is mainly good in AMU decks since the only
pokemon you play are basic except for Claydol and maybe
Mightyena if teched. This card does not have much else
use other than that. Other decks can not really utilize
this cards effect because most decks are based on
evolutions (Do I really need to list the
Modified: 3.25/ 5. It is great in AMU
but it most likely not see play out of it.
Limited: 2.25/ 5. It's not so great
here since most pokemon are going to stay in their basic
form. Plus it is more of a problem if your opponent
utilizes it more than you can. I rather not play it
unless you are playing Regigigas, Groundon, Kyogre, etc.
9/11 Snowpoint Temple (LA)
Right, Snowpoint Temple, one of the 2 new stadiums from
LA, and this is absolutely brilliant, and the review
about it from me is going to be annoyingly short. The
effect, quite simply, is to increase Basic's maximum HP
by 20. This can help basics turn OHKOs into 2HKOs, which
is nice, but you'd really need to have a mainly basic
deck for it to be most effective, or at least have a
Basic as a main attacker. Because of this, there are 2
decks who automatically benefit from this card, Skittles
(giving Ho-Oh (SW) 110HP) and AMU (giving the pixie
Lv.X's 110HP), and then any other new rouge decks that
Right, er, that's about it really. There isn't really
much to say about such a simple card.
Modified: In the right deck, this is absolutely
brilliant. However, any deck focusing on evolutions
should steer away from this card and use some other
counter stadium. 5/5 in basic decks, 1/5 in evolution
deck, but since there are more evolution decks than
basic decks... 2.5/5
Limited: Chances are, even with the evolutions you will
be using, you will find yourself using the basics
mainly, thus Snowpoint Temple will be very nice.
However, this is likely to be the same sort of thing for
your opponent, so will be a double-edged sword. If you
have the more powerful basics, then it could be useful,
but don't count on it. 2.5/5
HEYA all you pokefreaks and pokemeeks (who shall
inherit Kanto), it's about to get cold in the Pokemon
TCG. I'm talking, of course, about Snover. I MEAN, free
checking your opponent's hand? WHAT? And Snowball fight?
'Scuse me? Automatic four-of.....in your shoebox. Hahaha
Just kidding (who doesn't love Snover?), today's COTD is
Snowpoint Temple. Again, since it's a trainer, I'll just
be discussing it's type and it's effect and where you'll
see it, kay? Now let's get CHILL-AY!!!
Stadium: You'll be seeing alot of Stadiums in the
DP-on decks. I don't mean like eight copies of them, but
that every deck will probably be running at least one of
them. obviously, this hurts your stadiums by them being
uprooted by your opponents. But, these stadiums are
still powerful enougfh to warrant play, so suck it up
and play multiples.
Effect: This is another very simple effect. It will
help decks that play basics for offensive power, and
will really not do a hell of a lot for decks that don't.
That +20 might make your Chatot or Phione a bit bigger,
but it probably won't actually help you throughout the
game. This is a custom card for a specific deck.
Combos: What is that deck, you ask? WHY, it's none
other than AMU. The lake trio nedd the extra HP, which
will help sice they'll also have no weakness. They don't
need Dawn Stadium since they'll already get free
retreat, so this is the obvious great pick. Maybe some
other form of Haymaker (Mewtwo-focused deck maybe? Or
Mewtwo in AMU?) can effectively utilize this card, but
for now all copies are in AMU.
Ratings: 4/5 Once again, a unique card for one,
2/5 I don't see anyway to really play this to your
advantage unless you get lots of strong basics.
