OK, honestly, why does everybody throw this card to the side and laugh at decks that use it? Well, I will be the first to say that I have never thought of putting Energy Search in any of my decks. BUT with the new format, Call Energy will be the only special energy that I can see that will be played. With that said, there will be lots of basic energy cards in decks since we are losing DRE, Scramble, Holon Energies, Boost, and a bunch of others. SO, what's so bad about Energy Search over the basic energy? I can understand some decks that need the energy to attack/discard etc. and in those cases I can see the energy being more useful than energy search. BUT in many decks, Energy Search simply thins the deck, which is a GOOD thing. Energy Search can potentially reduce the deck by 4 cards which can help ensure better topdecks etc. It is an overlooked card, and personally if you have the space then Energy Search SHOULD be played. Just another rambling topic.
