2006 World
Holon's Castform

The best card in modified. Not only an amazing energy, but allows every delta based deck to be consistent. Without Holon's Castform, decks like Delta, Metanite, Sallygross would have trouble setting up. Having the ability to use Holon's Mentor to grab energy will greatly improve any deck's consistency.

Here Delta based decks aren't strong, and it's another target for Neo:
Genesis Murkrow.

With enough Delta Pokemon, its a decent opener. Overall, a nice energy to have if you are running multiple types of Pokemon.

Holon’s Castform

Arguably the best card in the game. Not only is Holon’s Castform an amazing opener, but an amazing closer as well! Delta Draw is an amazing opening for most decks, and Castforms energy ability is insanely good at every stage of the game, especially later on when you’re running low on energy. Everything about this card is broken.

Unlimited: 1/5

Not as good as Cleffa, and it’s nasty Tyrogue bait. Sucks as energy as well here, due to energy removal.

Modified: 5/5

Definitely a perfect score here. Everything about the card is better than it should be. If you’re playing a setup deck, 4 of these are a necessity.

Limited: 5/5

You’ll have plenty of Delta Pokemon here, so Delta draw is disgustingly good. The energy effect is still pretty nice to have around as well.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Holon's Castform

Modified 5/5 - Without this Pokemon, delta Pokemon decks wouldn't be as attractive and competitive as they are right now. With Holon Mentor, this allows a fast and consistent setup of your Pokemon army for most decks consisting of primarily delta Pokemon.

Kempley05 Holons Castform

This week we’re reviewing some of the cards that see play in one of the deck most popular decks so far this year - “Metanite”

Today it’s Holons Castform. I am quite happy to make a bold statement here - this is the best card in the format!

Holon’s Castform is Mentorable energy that you can attach to ex’s, and it’s huge draw in any delta deck, it allows easy teching of Latios* or Latias*, the quantity of cards you can get makes most delta decks work, it’s easily the best starter in the format if you have delta basics available. It sees play in decks like Metanite, Raieggs, Sallygross, Flygon ex delta and so on – quite right too.

Un-Limited – 1/5 – Bigger draw without attacking available, not good here.
Modified – 5/5 – Like I say the best card in a delta filled format.
Limited – 5/5 – Top notch card, special energy and draw are precious in limited.

Holon's Castfrom

Holon's Castform is a card that is so good and useful that nowadays it's extremely hard to come by. Combine it with Holon Mentor and you've got this sweet combo that lets you draw so many cards early in a game.

Not only is Holon's Castform a great draw card but its also a great way to power up a card because it counts as two of any type of energy. What makes the card even better is that you can get it out of your deck with Holon Mentor. Also when it's in the discard pile it counts as a pokemon which means Power Tree would work well with it.

Holons Castform~This is hands down the best pokemon card in our modified format today. over half of the most competitive decks out there play this card in their decks to ensure maximum consitancy. The fact that We have holons mentor makes castform a A+ starter and most of the pokemon in modified today are delta. Another bonus is the fact that it is not only a great starting pokemon it is also acts as a better but worse double rainbow energy that is searchable with mentor. If you are making any delta based pokemon decks it would be highly foolish of you not to play castform
