I'm hoping that this can be answered at the next rules team meeting. I know an 8-yr.-old boy who plans to use a deck based on this concept at the City Championships in 2 weeks. A judge will need to guess on this ruling, and the impact on the deck would be huge. When a card is released, it seems reasonable to me that the makers of the card should be able to answer a question about it within a reasonable time. Is a 2-month (or longer) wait really reasonable? Under the WotC chat system players would at least know that their question was heard and understood. In this case that's not clear at all. It would be most helpful if the rules team meeting notes included questions 'asked and referred to Japan'. At least that way, we'd know the status of the issue. Previously, WotC was unable to answer questions because 'they don't make the game'. Now that the game is manufactured by Nintendo, this no longer applies. I'm not happy with a company that can not answer basic questions about its own game.
