    Cresselia. Alright card but always a pro when its levelled up =D

    ...Still better than GE one so you can mess up opponent setup :thumb:

    And you can also find that crucial setup card farther down in your deck to get yourself going early on. Still, most of the time I think I will be playing around with my opponent's deck early in the game. However, the Psychic weakness is a rather large problem for it with an easy KO potential from a Psychic Lock.

    I'll say 7.5/10 Very neat card, but I doubt it will make a lot of decks as a starter.

    Worst Cresselia yet. the lv.X can only do 40 which is why a Cress that can do 50+ needs to be run. This would be the best Cressy yet if only it had 10 more base damage. Messing with set-up is fun, but your opponent gets 4/5 of those cards with Felicity's anyway. Possibly more with Claydol.

    When does anyone attack with Cresselia anyway? If I'm going to attack with a Cresselia, I'll use the Lv.X's attack. This is the best non-Lv.X Cresselia, simply because it can help your setup. If you start with it, 1 energy will help get your deck moving. If you've already got a great hand, you can either search for the Lv.X, or you can try to mess your opponent up. If you're going to play Cresselia Lv.X in your deck, use this guy.

    Meh... Only good as an early game setup or spread stopper. On top of that, the one I got in a prerelese started pealing in my first game. -_-

    This card is great for helping you get what ever cards you need.
    But 3 Energy for a 40 attack, idk. They should've let you heal more than just 1 once a turn.

    I think both Cresslia's are good.
    This one I would give a 7/10.
    I ike the GE one for its healing capabiities. It has saved me in the past.

    Cresselia from md. Well let's compare this one with the older one. This one has 70 hp while the ohter one has 80. It has the same bottom status. Now it's attacks are both the same as the old one but are they better let's look. The first one for any energy let's you look at the top 5 cards of either yours or your opponets deck and rearange them as you like. This is good in that this can help you draw a card that you need or keep your opponet from getting the card that they need. It's second attack for PPC dose 40 and heals 1 damage from each of your pokemon. Both of the cards can heal but one heals it self while this one heals all of your pokemon. The older one can do more damage and can heal one of oru pokemon of all damage if you discard 2 energy. It all comes down on what you prefure. This cressila can help you set up or hurt your opponet if you start with this on while the other one can heal one of your pokemon.
    I give this card a 7/10

    IMO, this one is better. Sure, The Cresselia from GE has more healing capabilites, but this one allows you to setup quicker, or hinder your opponent's setup. The fact that it has 70 HP is a let down, but it is still a good card.

    As long as G&G are ruling the table, this card is gonna have a hard time doing much at the tournament level. It's not a terrible card, the healing is nice, and the set up is fantastic. It would be a nice card to Set up with at the begining, lvl up, retreat, and then use as a tech until you are ready for a knockout for the double prize.

    With Claydol - 85/100
    Without Claydol - 70/100

    (In the fall, when the last EX expansions are cut, this card will will be more useful.)

    I don't know. I think they are both the same. I mean they both are allmost complety deffernt. GE helps you heal and has more HP. This one helps with the setup. But really they are just used for the LX.

    I give this one a 8.5

    Space Duck is good, foresight and you can level up to manipulate damage counters. As if Cress Lv X didn't put your opponent in a tight spot as it was....

    Let's compare it to our regular Cresselia from GE.
    For the minor attack, they're about the same; alright but not great.
    And the main attack, roughly equal also. Cres GE does 10 more damage (which you want, because Cresselia Lv.X's attack is only good for the KO), but removing damage can be handy, especialy if you run something like Gardy PK.

    I'd give Cresselia MD 8/10, and recomend Cres decks to run a GE and MD.

    i don't really like either, I think they cut Cresselia's power a bit since its attacks dont do much. If i was forced to do it, it would be in a big damaging deck that always leaves up to 30 hp or it wont do taht great.

    Welcome to what will be my last CotD review for quite a while; I leave this Friday for a 2 1/2 month study abroad trip, so I will not likely have the time to do these while out and about. Anyways, onto the review:

    Cresselia MD is a decent choice to use over the GE one. Stat-wise, she has 70 HP (Good, but 10 lower than the GE version), +20 Weakness to Psychic (not good, since Gardevoir is such a big threat), no Resistance, and 1 Energy for a Retreat Cost. Future Sight is a decent choice for an attack should you be forced to start with her (obviously, you should ideally not be attacking with her until you level up) as it allows you to rearrange either your top 5 cards in the deck or your opponent's top 5. Healing Light is expensive at 2 Psychic Energy and 1 Colorless Energy for a mere 40 damage, but it does allow you to remove 1 damage counter from each of your Pokemon, potentially saving some from being sniped and KOed. It can also be used I guess if you're weakening something to finish them off with Cresselia Lv X's Moon Skip.

    Overall, I feel she is a better starter (once again, if you have to) despite the lower HP, as Future Sight lets you either give yourself an advantage or to mess with your opponent's start. The GE version, however, is better with its attacks for supporting its Lv X form. In the end, I guess it's really up to you though as a player to pick what one you want to use.

    Modified - 7/10 (Solid Pokemon, meant for leveling up though and not for attacking by itself).
    Limited - 7/10 (2nd attack is expensive, but heals your Pokemon. Future Sight is great for getting an advantage in setting up)
    Unlimited - 1/10 (Why would you use Cresselia here?)

    Best Cresselia yet.

    Blehh. At least it's better than GE. Starting with this one could actually help you some. I'm just not a fan of Cresselia at all. The art is pretty wicked though.
