Moving right along, let's head back to the Radiant Collection and touch on Froslass! 

Probably the most interesting about Froslass here is that she's actually got one attack that is completely Colorless - meaning you can splash her into other decks without much trouble. That's kinda neat! Course that attack is Snowy Drop, and for 3 Energy, you get to put 4 counters on your opponent's Pokemon any way you like. It's really not worth all that Energy for up to 40 damage on any one target - or 10 damage on 4 targets, depending on what you're going for - so what more appeal could she have? 

Well her Ability is decidedly less Icy or Watery or anything relating to her Type in the TCG unless you're counting the Ghost Type she's got in the games. Drag Along pretty much does as its name implies - it's a 50/50 shot of flipping heads and taking your opponent's Pokemon down in an instant if Froslass got KO'd. Those are always fun effects to have. 

Keyword being fun. 

Not to say you won't see Froslass competitively or that she won't take out a very important potentially game-winning threat on the flip of a coin, but let's just all agree not to actively rely on using her effect to clinch games, okay? Just stick with your main attacking Vespiquens and Seismitoads and Trevenants and such, and you'll be fine. 

Rating 

Standard: 2/5 (the fact that she's got a Colorless attack still means she can go just about anywhere) 

Expanded: 2/5 (and if we're just using her for an Ability she's got, well, she's as splashable as Garbodor at that point!) 

Limited: 3.5/5 (...Garbodor who can negate her Ability...huh) 

Arora Notealus: Yeah, there's not much reason to run Froslass in most decks. Even on the tech-off chance her Ability does go off, it's not like the opponent can't come up with the Garbodor contingency to negate it and run it over anyway. But details - WHO WANTS TO GO TO THE MOUNTAINS LATER!! We can hike up to the summit and meet the lady in the cabin there! 

Next Time: Fierce cats with psychic powers? Suppose I best grab the catnip...
