Modified 2/5 - I don't think there's anything besides Magcargo that can take full advantage of this card yet. Nevertheless, its Poke-Power looks promising. Anything Pokemon that can somewhat manipulate discard piles, like Dragonite d, can make it somewhat worthwhile.

Computer Guy Sableye from Ex Crystal Guardians.

I don't like this card at all. It just doesn't do enough to be useful.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Sableye from Crystal Guardians. This is one of those cards that separates the elite from the “noobs”. It doesn’t make the greatest starter, and it’s not a heavy hitter, but it can be very useful. This card can be splashed into any deck, and can be very crafty if used correctly. His power “Excavate” lets you look at the top card in your deck and discard it if you like. “How is this useful?” Delcatty ex or similar cards that use the discard pile to help calculate damage will benefit from this card. His attack is also a mid to late game threat. Disable lets you do damage and prevent 1 attack of your choice from you opponents active. To my knowledge, this is the only disable that does damage. The ability to limit you opponent’s attacks mid to late game can let you build your bench, or stop your opponents all together (if they only have 1 attack).

Combos: Works well with any pokemon or trainer that makes use of the discard pile Delcatty Ex (CG), or Omastar (LM)

Modified: 3/5 Do not overlook or underestimate.

Limited: 4/5 No weakness, a good HP plus the ability to disable, makes this guy last a long time.

Current ebay Value: $2.00 (plus or minus $.75 cent)

Not a bad card, excavate has a lot of abilities in terms of deck thinning and allows you to control a little more of your game. Possibly he could be used in decks that like discard, I'm thinking Metanite possibly. Apart from that he's a possible card in Mewtric as his attack can stop Pokémon with one attack right in their tracks (Charizard d, Metagross d) however most have 2 or more. Has potentially and could make it into several decks, however the decks that use him won't be great in number.
