First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Collin Skeen, AKA drtomoe123, and I'll be joining you in the CotD today. I've recently come back from a break from the Pokemon TCG (I was gone from RS-SF...it was more of an extended hibernation). However, over these past few months, I've been completely absorbed by the TCG world once again (after spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on cards lately, I'm starting to remember why I left...they're too addicting!), and I'm currently a League Leader and Professor in Southwest Virginia. I'm glad to join the team. :D Now, onto the review:

Cynthia's Guidance
Supreme Victors
Uncommon

Yes, we've got another Cynthia card! Cynthia's Feelings has become one of my personal favorites, mainly for it's ability to turn an empty hand and a sacrificial, used-up Azelf into something a lot more productive. I can't count the number of times where Cynthia has helped me out of a rough spot, so when I initially saw this card a while back, I thought, "It's Cynthia, so it has to be good."

Boy, was I wrong.

Compared her sweet Feelings, Cynthia's Guidance is a waste of space. If it was a normal trainer, this might be worth it, but it's a SUPPORTER. If you really want a card, why waste your supporter for the turn on a gamble on the top seven cards? Instead, you could just play smart and play Roseanne's to get a Basic or an Energy, or even Bebe's to get the Evolution or Lv. X you need. The only situation I could really see myself using this in would be in a case where I really needed a Rare Candy or some other trainer, since Trainer searching is pretty dry, but if you've got more than 20 cards left in your deck, your chances still aren't worth the waste of a supporter. Heck, go ahead and use Bebe's/Roseanne's to get you an Uxie/Claydol out and then you can show Cynthia just whose Guidance is more valuable.

Ratings:

Modified: 1.5/5 This card could be useful, but unfortunately, it's too situational. Go play a good supporter or something more consistent. Heck, go play Pokedex, it's MUCH better than this card.

Limited: 3/5 This card gets a big boost here only because supporters and trainers are hard to come by to begin with. I'm sure you could be in a situation where your next 5 cards are energy and at least Cynthia's Guidance can get something and shuffle.

So overall, if you're playing in the SV Pre-Releases that are coming up, I'd go with Cynthia's Guidance solely because there's little else you can have. But if you're playing from a cardpool that has more than 147 cards, you shouldn't rely too much on this card. Stick with her Feelings instead.
