    after building your deck and saving it click on the unlimited option at the bottom you can then specify the reprints.

    I hadn't thought of including the reprints in the "available" lists actually. I'll take a look at it.

    FYI, Secret Wonders are now in the Pokepedia.

    lol gino you spent more time writing this thread than you would have the entire season on writing the extra line to say you had a different lucario or whatever.

    The VA PTO has wanted deck lists written like that for a while now and has recently began to more rigorously enforce it. I'll have to check if he still wants set names for energy cards even though it seems to be getting dropped from POP's deck list templete.

    I don't get it. I think that as long as a card has been re-released and you list the re-release info (proving that the card is legal in modified), that should be enough.

    What does it matter that you're using a specific Lucario? If that Lucario is legal in any modified set - and you list one of those sets on your decklist - that should be enough.

    I think there are some PTOs who get caught up on the minutia of enforcement to the point of distraction.

    The deck list has to be a clear unambiguous description of a legal deck being used by a specific player.

    The cards in the actual deck have to match the deck list in such a way that the person checking the deck can quickly and efficiently establish the correspondence between the physical cards and the list.


    It is wrong IMHO for a player to write out their deck list in such a way that it requires the list-checker to refer to the reprint document when an alternative way of filling out the deck list would not require that additional work.

    So in the case of the Lucarios I'd be okay with all of them listed as DP 06 as long as at least one copy of a DP 06 Lucario was present.

    However if you were to play 4 Machamp HL #09, I would not be happy if you listed them as PK #11. Even though we play it as the PK reprint it is neither the same card (text change) nor can I check it by comparing the picture / name / text with a current card that is in your deck.

    If you play 1PK & 3HL Machamp I would expect them to be listed on separate lines, because the deck with the HL Machamp needs an external reference outside the deck which the 4PK Machamp deck does not.


    The bottom line is that you can't go wrong if you fill the decklist in by following the instructions on the sheet! If you want to vary from those instructions in how you complete the decklist then it is your responsibility to make sure that your list isn't more difficult to check than one that had actually followed the written instructions.

    That isn't a hardline position surely
