Impact of Random Receiver?
What will the Impact of this card be, and how will it change draw and search engines?
Will it allow us to use a lower number of draw supporters in decks?
Will every deck play 4?
I honestly have no idea how this card will impact deck-building. I'd like to know what other people are thinking about this new exciting card.
Currently we have pokegear which many decks choose to run 2 of. It won't decrease supporter count as we have little in the way of search supporters next season. I do expect many deck engines to look something like this come cities.
4 Random Reciever.
I think it is very unlikely that the card gets played over Poke'Gear.
In a deck running nothing but draw supporters (Such as CMT), I think this card will be preferred. In decks running cards such as Seeker and Pokemon Collector, I think Pokegear will be the better choice.
Poke Gear: You might get a supporter (or a choice of supporters), but sometimes you won't.
Random Receiver: You always get a supporter, it might just not be what you want.
They have pros and cons, but I do think that Random Receiver will see some play when it's released, and a lot more play after Poke Gear is rotated out of the format.
