There are only two Steel/Fairy types out in the world: Mawile, who was originally just Steel, and Klefki, the new dangling set of jingly keys from Gen VI! As much as I'd love to make fun of GameFreak running out of ideas (looking at you, Vanilluxe and Garbodor), Klefki's a far more creative design for a key ring, don't you think? 

In any case, this is Klefki's first Steel-type card, which means you can run it thematically with the rest of your Steel deck if you want to - the only real question is, do you want to? Klefki isn't notably strong at only 70 HP, and I doubt you're gonna be utilizing his Dull Light attack for a measly 2-for-20 and Confusion. So what else does Klefki have? 

I think you saw it the moment you looked at him: Call for Family. That's right, it's yet another "Call for Family" Pokemon that we have to compare to Emolga (LTR). What's the difference? It requires Steel Energy, and Klefki has 1 Retreat Cost. The funny thing is, Emolga hasn't been that big of a deal in a long time from what I've seen - there's not a whole lot of crazy Emolga strats going down these days! Which means that Klefki's even less relevant now. 

It's a shame too; there could have been a really neat card for a Steel-typed Klefki, but perhaps they got too focused on other Steel types that by the time they got to Klefki, they were all like, "Eh, just make him another Caller." 


Standard: 1.5/5 (it's sad how irrelevant something like Call for Family - which once upon a time was REALLY GOOD - gets over time) 

Expanded: 1.5/5 (not much better here) 

Limited: 3/5 (I can imagine seeking out that Big Basic still far more valuable here) 

Arora Notealus: He'll never let go of your keys, Jack! You can sink to the bottom of the Atlantic, but Klefki will always hold onto your safety deposit key!
