Scyther 21 Gardevoir ex

Gardy Ex is a card that demonated last year's Worlds and has the possibility of doing it again at this Worlds this year.

With 150HP it can take alot of damage this is extremely good for an ex since your opponent will take two prizes to KO it.

The first attack has unlimited power (not really) but it can deal alot for only one psychic and a colorless energy. I don't about anywhere else but in my meta-game huge hand sizes are just that huge. There always seems to be a point where the opponent has more than 7 cards in there hands (thats why we play Copycat right). Also this makes a decent turn two attack. First turn play Ralts with a psychic, second turn play Candy into Gardy ex and attach energy for some decent damage (as hands tend to be large at the beginning of the game).

The second attack can deal unlimited damage (once again not really) but it can deal a ton, espically with all of the energies like boost, DRE, and scramble out there that provide more than one energy at a time so if you use a psycic and a boost to use Psystorm you deal 40 from just Gardy ex. Your opponent will most likely have about 3-5 out at a time mid game so thats not bad at all.

The bottom stats are expected except the extra weakness to.... grass?, the other weakness is psychic (making this deck suck against itself), no resistance, and a retreat of two is decent for this card.

Unlimited: 3.2 this card can easily find some kind of combo through the set of pokemon

Modified: 3.8 this card is power in the current enviorment and after worlds it will be gone, so don't trade away good cards for this
Limited: 4.5 if you draft this and its evo. line play it by it only needing one specific energy it is splashable, also Psystorm will reak havoc because most deck in draft has a ton of energy.

Scyther 21 out
Jaeger Todays Card of the Day is Gardevoir Ex from Sandstorm. This week were looking at the Gardevoir lines and Gardevoir Ex is must have in almost all Gardevoir decks so lets get to it.

Hit Points(150): I believe all stage 2 pokemon Ex have 140-160 hit points so 150 is right in the middle. Its high enough it'll probally take your opponent 2-3 attacks to knock out but by that time it will have done its damage.

Weakness(Psychic,Grass): The psychic weakness really isn't that big of a surprise since most psychic Pokemon are weak to psychic with a few exceptions and you rarely see grass decks, their are some really good ones out there but they seem to get over shadowed by the more popular decks.

Retreat Cost(CC): Two is resonable cheap for a stage 2 Pokemon Ex but like I stated in my last COTD with Gardevoir(RS) with a Gardevoir deck if your not careful you may run out of energy so retreating can be very costly I find running a Switch or a Warp Point(AM) really helps out.

Resistance(None) Not really huge surprise, would have been nice though.

Attack 1(Feedback): The nice thing is it gets around resistance since it places damage counters instead of doing damage, the bad thing is that if your opponent knows its coming they will just play their hand done so you won't be hitting for much damage but they might also reconsider playing that Steven's Advice(HL).

Attack 2(Psystorm): Early game you proablly won't be hitting for that much damage but late game I find myself hitting usually for over hunderad and whats great is that you can use Boost
Energy(DX) with it.

Summary: Its almost a must in Gardevoir decks, its very easy to abuse Boost with it, you can hit for almost unlimited damage with it. The only thing I really don't like is that it does not hit for a guarnetted amount of damage it all depends on factors in play.

Unlimited: 2/5

Modified: 4/5

Limited: 4.5/5
