Limited: 4.1

1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Hey all,

Today's card is Holon Ruins from Delta Species

Well, let's face it - this is a terrible card here. There's much better draw and much better stadiums to play. If you are playing delta Pokes, then you're not playing serious anyways (I haven't seen any playable ones yet). Sorry, but this is just a bad card.

Unlimited Rating 1.1/5
I see very few bad things about this card. Pretty much all of the δ Pokémon are playable. Non-supporter draw is great and you get to use the effect every turn. The only disadvantages are:

- There are (depending on the situation) better stadiums to play (Desert Ruins, Battle Frontier). Holon Ruins is a good card; just don’t forget to put a “staple” stadium in your deck as well.

- You have to discard a card. Of course, discarding cards is a cost that many good cards in TCG’s have; in Pokémon, good effects like drawing cards are usually worth the discard.

- Also, there’s the chance that your opponent plays δ Pokémon as well.

Unlimited: Much better draw power in this format. Don’t play this card. Even if you want to play a stadium to counter any stadiums your opponent may have, there are better stadiums in Unlimited. 1.2/5

Modified: If you’re making a δ deck, this is a good card to have. It’s non-supporter draw, which is rare in this format. 4.7/5

Limited: 37% of the Pokémon in DS are δ Pokémon. And they are all playable. Just as playable as the non-δ Pokémon, if not more. If you get this card, deck it. Get some δ Pokemon as well. 4.8/5

Holon Ruins

Sorry guys, I have exams this week and I was very busy so I couldn't write COTD's.
Not because of my exams of course, haha, who gives about exams anyway?!
no, my father demolished my computer so I have to share a computer with 4 other people now, so I am rarely online.
anyway, I should write a COTD now that I am online so here it goes;

I don't think it's really good here, it could be used with rocket's zapdos (to discard a lightning energy), but there are better stadiums here. also, I don't think delta pokemon are really playable here anyway.

Pretty good counter card for battle frontier.
if you play delta pokemon that is, of course, also, this stadium combines with magcargo. Magargo puts any card on top of your deck, holon ruins fetches it, and you didn't even spend a supporter on that.
pretty awesome card in delta decks.

pretty good here as you have draw power.
Discard a card, draw a card.
It's pretty likely you play delta pokemon here, and also that you might have a crappy card in your hand.
