Deoxys ex

EX Delta Species

X-Act Deoxys ex (Attack form)

Deoxys ex (Attack form) is a deadly card, in the right deck. It has 110HP, which is very healthy for a Basic Pokemon, even for an ex Pokemon, but remember that Desert Ruins might, umm, ruin it. Its Poke-Power, Form Change, lets you exchange it with a different Deoxys ex from your deck, giving your opponent a surprise at times. Its attack, for two colorless and a psychic, does 50, with an option of discarding two Energy from Deoxys ex in order to deal an additional 20 damage for each Energy attached to the Defending Pokemon. This allows for a probable OHKO, at the cost of discarding two Energy.

Metagross from EX Deoxys combos well with it, since it allows you to get a Psychic Energy from the discard pile and attach it to Deoxys ex, which allows the latter to attack for more than 50 turn after turn. All in all, quite good.

Unlimited: It might work here as well, especially with Metagross DX. With Metagross, it becomes more immune to removals, and Psychic is not often seen in Unlimited, save for Slowking, which invariably doesn’t attack. It’s true that Psychic resistance is a little bit present, but these invariably are on Pokemon that have 60HP at most, and, if all else fails, you can always play stuff like Crystal Shard or even Magnetic Storm. It also helps that DCE can be used both for the attack cost and for the discarding, not to mention cards like Scoop Up and Pokemon Center to help Deoxys ex last a wee bit longer. Fun stuff. 3/5

Modified: Here it’s also good, simply because it can still get the benefit of Metagross DX. Fun fun fun. 3.5/5

Draft: Yes take it. Don’t worry about discarding two energies. Firstly, you don’t have to discard them… you can deal 50 damage if you so wish, without discarding anything, and something tells me that most Basic Pokemon have 50HP. Secondly, when you discard those two energy, you OHKO their attacker more often than not, which should give you ample time to attach two more energies, since it’s highly unlikely that your opponent has another evolution ready to attack you. Take it, or be prepared to lose to it. 5/5

Today's card is Deoxys EX from Delta Species

Well, I'm definitely not a fan of the Deoxys. We've tried this Poke exchange thing before and I don't think it worked very well. The concept is nice - get the Poke you need for different situations. The problem is not being able to keep him alive long enough for the effect to matter. They usually require too much energy and this one is no exception. 50+ for three energy is not very appealing to those who still see Sneasle (who is resistant to Deoxys by the way) still being played in places. Not only that, but you can still only run 4 Deoxys and 4 Deoxys EX in a deck. Thats only 8 Pokes that the deck would have to be centered on. It just doesn't work to my knowledge. Besides, this one is an EX and still doing crummy damage. If you are going to do a Deoxys deck, sure this guy wouldn't be a horrible pick, but I would reconsider running the deck all together.

Unlimited Rating 1.25/5
