Hey, now here's a card to add to your Dark Gengar deck! Put your opponent to Sleep every turn. Of course, you have to worry about putting yourself to sleep, but there are ways around that, right?

This is a card with a nice power. I like to see unusual cards that are actually playable. Not too good in Unlimited, but it fits in some Modified decks. Note that the way the LC is sorted, you will get two Drowzee and one Snorlax packaged together. This is great if you are playing sealed or an alternate Draft where you pick multiple cards per turn.

Unlimited: 2.75/5

Modified: 3.5/5

Draft: 3.75/5

Nothing is cooler than breakdancing Drowzee.

In unlimited, Status decks don't work too well. Full Heal Energy, Scoop Up, and the like are staples. And sleep is a fairly weak condition without Dark Gengar. Plus, the attack isn't that good. I'm sure it could be used, but I really don't see how or why. 2/5

In modified, Dark Gengar has had a signifigent impact, and this provides yet another way to keep them asleep. Lets you toast anything and everything easier with Misdreavus. You know, it makes me think they reprinted this card to improve Dark Gengar. Hmm...Conspiracy-y. 2.9/5

In limited, the downside of putting yourself to sleep comes into play more than before. You're less likely to have cards that get rid of status. But the attack isn't bad in this format, and it makes a good addition if you're drafting psychic. 2.7/5


Tuesday: Drowzee

There was once a really good deck that my friend, Chris, used. It was a Dark Vileplume/Drowzee/Snorlax deck that WORKED! It was unbelievable. He actually placed 3rd once in a 25 person tournament with it! It totally TecHed out, and did extremely well. TR Drowzee doesn't seem like much, because it still leaves you with only a 25% chance of actually putting the opponent to SLEEP next turn. However, combined with Dark Gloom, you long distance hypnosis first, then use Dark Gloom's power. Normally you'll get the opponent with some status effect.

Standard Rating: 2.3/5 (Useful in that snorlax deck)
Modified Rating: 1.7/5 (Dark Hypno in modified? Yeah, that'll be a great archetype on the day Osama loves America.)
Limited Rating: 3/5 (It's quite a bit better here.)

Croconaw88 Tuesday:Drowzee

Lets look at his stats. 50 HP is average for a basic. The bottom stats arent great. His attack is decent 2 energys for 10 and sleep.

In Standard Drowzee won't cut it since its evolution isnt even good.

In Modified you need a heavy hitter and drowzee is just not one of them. It could be used in a Dark Gengar deck but there's better ways of putting your opponent to sleep.

In draft special effects are always good. 

Standard 1/5
Modified 1/5
Draft 2.5/5

sAvIoR Drowzee - Well, Drowzee... this is a under-played card to say the least.

It's just not much of a card. Even it's evolution isn't that great. Of course being able to do 30 damage to a benched pokemon can be an advantage, especially to babies, but for the cost of 3 psychic it's to costly. Drowzee is weak in standerd, weak in modified, but I guess playable in draft with the nice little confusion attack.

Standerd - 1

Modified - 1

Draft - 2.5


This is an interesting card. Long-Distance Hypnosis can combo with two cards, Jungle Snorlax (now an uncommon in LC!) and Dark Gengar. While it might not work so well with Dark Gengar, it works really well with Jungle Snorlax.

50 HP and a mediocre attack isn't that good, plus there aren't any good Hypnos around.

In Unlimited, the card is not really playable. I guess you can make a fun deck with Snorlax but don't expect the deck to win a lot...

In Modified, it's decent. It won't see a lot of play though.

In Draft, this is where it trully shines. Remember, Snorlax is now an uncommon in LC, making it possible for you to get the combo out easier. Status effect is hard to get rid off in Draft and Snorlax's high HP is really great. I think it was a good idea for WoTC to lower Snorlax's rarity as it makes it more playable, especially in Draft.

Unlimited Rating: 2.2/5
Modified Rating: 2.7/5
Draft Rating: 3.2/5 is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
