Name five supporters off the top of your head right now. I bet you thought of some of these: Oracle TV Reporter PETM POR Copycat Fan Club Fisherman Town Volunteers You didn't think of Forest Guardian, did you? Actually, you probably did, since it's in the title, but I digress. Did I use that word correctly? I never was any good at grammar. How many of you use Master Ball in your modified decks? Anybody? Otaku, Baboon, um...nobody else. Not to single you guys out, but the power of Masterball can't be denied, since it isn't a supporter. Any non-supporter trainer immediately turns my head nowadays. Masterball is good, no doubt. You draw seven cards, choose a pokemon card and show it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck. Forest Guardian, which is a supporter, lets you do the same thing, except: 1) You must shuffle your deck before you draw the seven cards. 2) You may choose any card 3) You don't show it to your opponent The cards are very similar. But with all the good supporters, Forest Guardian didn't make the cut in most decks. It's rotating out soon anyway, most people think, so why bother? Here's why: Any card out of seven into your hand. Any card. If you like Masterball, then why not use this. It's a supporter. So what? Drop some Oracle or something. Which brings me to Oracle vs. Forest Guardian. Oracle let's you take two cards from your entire deck. This kind of searching is UNPARALLELED in the current modified format. So why bother writing this article, you ask? Forest Guardian gets the card right into your hand. No waiting, no chances for Desert Shaman disruption. Nothing. Just one card of seven, straight into your hand. So what? you think, I'll just play Delcatty. It let's me draw right away. First of all, you have to set Delcatty up. You can't use it first turn. First turn Forest Guardians are extremely helpful, especially in today's format. So it's good first turn, big deal, you think. Ah! It is a big deal. Today's evolution filled envio relies heavilly on speed, speed, speed. Give it a chance. Guardian is a very good card. I used to run 3/3 Oracle Guardian, but no more. I'm using 4/2 now, and Guardian has taken the lead.
