its kinda funny put I had this card for a card of the day before DMTM posted his, and like 2 people said it was dumb, and both were profeccors, well- to each his own opionion, but for decking decks. This sucker is awsome.

The attack in question is

Dark, Dark, Colorless, Colorless, Colorless.
Gigacrush 60, Both players discard the top 3 cards of there deck.

wam. I win.

I don't think this is really usable in tournaments due to it's far too expensive attacks and overall inflexability, but it can be fun.
It might be a really annoying combo with Slowking. But it will never be legal in Modified, so there's no need to think about that one.
Perhaps it's playable with Unown O or Houndoom. But you still won't know what you will be throwing away yourself. [Frown]

Why won't it be legal in modified. A 5 energy requirement and you also discard cards off your own deck. Sounds pretty balanced to me.

I believe our elite friend was making mention that the card will never be able to combo with Slowking in Modified (as slowking is banned before AQ is released)

this card looks to be able to abuse boost energy, and rainbow energy, and crystal energy (will certainly help dark and metal decks unless they errata it).

80 damage base with 2 dark, kind of nasty.

I'm dreaming of TTAR moltres, the kind I want to deck you with!!!

only problem, you get Tyrogued twice, you get KOd. I kid you not, fighting is coming back (ducks as things are thrown at him)

See you on the boards!

He meant Slowking (as meganium put it).

Boost Energy could be helpful here. Could be.

Do you get the impression that Slowking might have been banned because of this fellow here? .... 3 Slowking on your Bench, opponent is denied to play 3 trainers, then up comes Tyranitar and shaves them off? EVIL.

Tyranitar is OK... kinda cool... not too shabby... I'll wait and see how it does in the field before making a solid judgement on 'em. ... Though, I've always been a big fan of the Tyranitar cards... Tyranitar-Moltres seems a very interesting idea, maybe I should risk playing it when its released. [Big Grin]

THis card could also be a great combo with one of the Pokedex cards and Lucky Stadium, letting you choose which cards you want to keep/discard. ALSO! with the Feraligatr (Berserk) could become a deck-destroying combo!

His Energy costs are too much for the punch. Would need to combo real well, very susceptible to Energy control (Lot of in this set) and Fighting.

Slowking was not even considered as a viable Archetype with this card. Too hard to get going.

the reason slowking was banned is because all decks had one of the following

2+ pichu
2+ igglybuff
2+ muk
3+ Slowking

and all because of slowking... 5 energy is too much, just use dark t-tar/king (when it was allowed) sure its not perfect, but this guy sucks, sorry

Maybe the upcomming aquapolis WAS the reason slowking was banned.
