Modified:
The only thing stopping Copycat from being more popular is it was replaced
by Holon Scientist, which has the advantage of being fetched using Holon
Transceiver. However, Coypcat is a stronger card than Holon Scientist, as
the benefit of drawing more cards usually outweighs the ability to hold on
to a good one to draw less.

Copycat has become a very strong card because of the amount of decks that
use Holon's Castform's Delta Draw to set up.

Modified: 4/5

Unlimited:
Copycat is actually one of the few supporters that you CAN use in unlimited.

However, to avoid slowing yourself down, avoid playing more than 2 or 3
supporters in your deck in unlimited.

Copycat is strong because anytime your opponent uses Cleffa (Neo: Genesis)
to Eeeeeeek, you get 7 cards.

Unlimited: 3.5/5

Limited:
While hand sizes generally aren't too large, any draw you can get can give
you a huge advantage. Play it if you draft it.
Limited: 4.5/5

Copycat

Copycat has been stuck in binders all across the nation ever since Delta Species gave us the AMAZING Holon Engine. Most decks just run 4 Trans and a Scientist over Copycat now. Copycat still has its place in the non-Holon Engine decks though, such as Mewtric and Arcanine.

Unlimited: 2/5

This is almost never going to be as useful as an Oak. Supporters are very under powered in Unlimited.

Modified: 3/5

Still decent, but not as strong or consistent as the Holon Engine, in my opinion.

Limited: 5/5

Any draw in limited is an automatic 5/5.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Copycat

Modified 4/5 - This is definitely one of the best draw cards in the format. However, it is situational, and running more than 2 or 3 is not recommended. You need to have this card in your hand, and wait for the right opportunity to maximize this card's potential - such as when your opponent just finish a huge Delta Draw with Holon's Castform.

My name is Copycat
I’m not hard to understand
I can draw up as many cards
That your opponent has in his hand

Unlimited: Situational I mean say you opponent just played 4 Bill then Copycat is nice.

But why waist a Supporter if you can play cards like Bill, Erika and Oak.


Rating : 2/5

Modified: Nice card here but isn’t as good as it used too be. I mean we have better Supporters out there that can draw cards for you and they can be fetched faster with Holon Tranceiver.

Anyway this cards really depends on the deck you play with. Still a nice card though as it has the ability to shuffle cards back in to your deck.

Rating : 3.5/5

Limited: Any draw is good in Limited.

Rating : 5/5
 
Kempley05 Copycat

Copycat is one of those cards that people seem to underrate after its temporary absence from the format. A lot of people judge the quality of draw cards by their net draw. This isn’t what counts, what matters is the draw of fresh cards.

So while most of the draw cards in this format get you 3-4 fresh cards – with the larger hand sizes we’re seeing this gets you typically 5-7. Against Castform engine decks you could even get into double figures.

Problems are that you are relying on some luck of the draw, however, in a consistent simple list; multiple copycats provide a very decent draw engine. The better of the two shuffle draw cards in modified.

Unlimited 2/5 – There’s better draw cards here, but could help v. a Vilepume ex lock..

Modified 4.5/5 – Top draw card, and arguably the best alongside the Holon engine.

Limited 5/5 – Any draw in limited is essential, play it.
