Ratings are based

5 is the highest rating.
Meh... I guess it could be used as a
deck thinner, but there are better cards for that. A newbie card,
and nothing more really. Although someday it's usefulness may
soar with new sets, who knows.
Unlimited: Trash. Do NOT use it
Modifed: Not worth it. Use Bill,
Elm, Copycat and those kinds of cards: 2.5/5
Draft: Pretty good here. Any form
of card drawing is good. I played a draft an won it with 3
Mantinence and two Bills one time =D ...good times... 4/5
The Bottom Line: 2.5/5
Not a bad
way to look and see if you have what you need in your next three
2 advantages, get to draw the card of your choice NOW, then get to
pick which card you draw NEXT.
If you do not like your choices, go ahead and find a way to
shuffle your deck, so it is randomized again (Elm, copycat,
research, and others)
This takes the place of Bill nicely, gets you one card, and serves
as a mini-oracle/pokedex at the same time. This card should not
be immediately overlooked.
One other major bonus to this card is that it is not a supporter,
so you can still play any trainer after playing this card.
In unlimited, no matter what rules you play under, this card
should be overlooked 1.5/5
In modified, E-on (Expedition on with Best Promos) A nice
replacement for Bill, I will experiment more with this card. 3.5/5
In limited, a great card that lets you not only draw a card, but
set your next two draws. Unless you have a Professor Birch in the
same pack, a definite trainer pick, 4.5/5
Kudos to those who ran the R/S Challenge at Passtimes in Chicago
this week! Thanks for a great tourney!!! Just wish it wasn't a 5
Kudos to Adam, Poke, Dave and all the others who worked hard to
make the event go off! Great to see all the players out there in
a step down from Pokegear (GSC/Neos) but good in draft.
Unlimited- There's always Oak, CPS, and so much more viable draw
power, don't ever use this. It just loses a card in your deck!
Modified- There will be enough other draw options for you not to
use this. Pass on this card here as well unless you want it for
oracle since bill left.
Draft- Any draw cards in draft are hard to come by and are always
top choices. In the R/S challenge events, definitely use this!
It speeds up the game one turn and rearranges the top 2 cards in
your deck after the draw!
2 vs. 2- Nothing can be used in combination with this in my mind
except for Oracle, but its a little less useful in here than in
regular modified since your 2 pokemon need to be supported, so a
one card draw wont help much.
Multiplayer- You CAN use it on your ally if you want (perhaps if
a Slowking buried a GoW under a card or two in his deck), but
unless you really fear Slowking or use Oracle, try to steer away
