With the new Mulligan rule (opponent draws only 1 card instead of 2) and the new Fossil trainer rule (Fossils may be played as starting Pokemon), I'm guessing that the average number of "real" basics included in E-on decks will drop. Furthermore, cards like Lanette and Fan Club make it possible to further reduce the number of basics. In the past, my minimum basic count was 11-12. When Fan Club came out (and Traders were still available in Modified), I dropped down to 9-10. Now, I'm thinking I can drop to 6-7 "real" basics, thereby making it possible to run a two Stage-2 combo line. Anyway, my point is that I'm expecting to see "real" basics replaced by Fossils in many decks and more multiple Stage+ decks. JMO.
