Snowpoint Temple

 

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

decks?)

 

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.

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 get made.
 
Right, er, that's about it really. There isn't really much to say about such a simple card.
 
Ratings:
 
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, unique purpose

2/5 I don't see anyway to really play this to your advantage unless you get lots of strong basics.
