Hmm ... Haven't heard from IQ in a
couple of days.
Maybe he's en route to the Pokemon
World Championships in Seattle this weekend?
Nah .... Though he is a pretty
dang good Pokemon Player. My chance to embarrass
Did any of you guys ever see this
photo of IQ making Top 4 at the Pokemon STS in New Jersey in
2000? That's IQ shaking hands with Dark Master Trainer Mike of
WOTC. IQ ... you look like you're ready to axe someone off in
At least you're
sporting a cool Pojo Hockey Jersey IQ. I think I need to get
you a new one! - Bill
Notice one thing here: the common
card which does basically the same thing, The Talking Ends Here,
is banned. That should tell you that this card is overly
powerful that only escaped banning because of its rarity.
This is the key card that suicide Earth DB decks are based on,
waiting for the opponent to try killing him, then pulling this
stunt to fetch out all the Dragon Balls, since that'd make up the
rest of the deck. Fortunately, the rarity of this card is
probably what keeps this deck type so unpopular, but the ability
to stop a loss for any number of turns is just asking for insane
combo potential. I know there was some really big combo in
Tuff Enuff that it was able to pull off until there was errata on
it, but I don't know what that was.
Anyway, though I'm personally
clueless to whatever you could do with this card, stopping a loss
for any amount of time is just too good to pass up in any
tournament, especially if you play non-survival.
S: 4.7 TE:
This card can do many things,
including get your hopes up only to have them dashed apart. It can
give you a chance to "get it together" and win, while your
opponent has to wait. This card is best used in the end game, when
both players have barely any cards left. To do this, you have to
rejuvenate it, constantly perhaps. Orange and Blue Decks will kill
this card with Blue Betrayal and Orange Staredown, so keep this card
for later against them.
Black, Saiyan, and Red
decks, have next to no anti-non combat. Put it out against them.
This card is a good partner of Foreboding evidence and Its Just Not
Worth It. Its Just Not Worth it and WTLTH = possible 3 turns
survival against DB's or anger. This card isn't effective in Tuff
Enuff, since it can't protect you against overkill victory (Once you
are overkilled, you are already OUT of the tournament).
Tuff Enuff: 1/5
The coveted Where There's
Life There's Hope. The miniature Talking Ends Here. Most decks run
one of these, if they can get their hands on them. It's an unwritten
law that all non-CIT DB Decks should run 1 of these. Why? Because if
you get down to 0 life cards and use one of these, you'll just draw
your DBs and win. It's a very good card. It has won me games. It has
lost me games. It loses a little bit of value in Tuff Enuff but by
no means should you still not play it. Yes, it is truly worthy of an
Ultra-Rare. I will say that it is the best Ultra-Rare out there
right now. So if you can get your hands on one, use it.
Standard - 4.7 -- Woooo those Dragon
Ball decks love this card. Alot.
Tuff Enuff - 3.5 -- Not a pushover by
any means, but just not as effective.
Where theres life theres hope - Trunks Saga
Hmm. Well i cant say much about this card cos we reviewed the
talking ends here and this card is similar. On the other hand. This
card is a may be difficult to find since it is an Ultra Rare card
from the trunks saga. Not me though i pulled 2 :P. Anyway this card
is nice in any deck. It can hold off dragons victory or backlash
wins for a turn at least. Hopefully you can win before the effects
of wtlth runs out. It will not cancel backlash though which sucks.
But it can cancel dragons victory if you gain or lose anger before
the effects of wtlth is gone which can be helpful. This card doesn't
need to be in EVERY deck but it is a nice card to have in your deck.
Note: I shall be at tuff enuff championships hope to see there! Good
luck as well!
Friday - Where There's Life There's Hope (TS)
This is probably one of my favorite cards (after my Foil Krillin, the Mighty
and Krillin redemption level 2 HT 0_o) of course I don't own one due to the
fact that it's an Ultra Rare :(
This card is amazing, it prevents your opponent from winning in any way
what-so-ever, what's bad about that? Of course you have to be able to
defeat your opponent somehow before he/she is able to go again. So if you
have a horrible card draw on your turn, and have a bad hand when this come
into effect, all you're doing is prolonging the inevitable. Another thing
about this card is the fact that it's a Non-Combat card, so it can easily be
destroyed by Gohan Meditates (which I now believe is a staple in all decks),
Blue Betrayal, Orange Destruction Drille etc.,
This card is still amazing.. like if you're playing a Saiyan deck and
they've activated 2 Whose Da Mans, and 3x Saiyan Offensive Rush, and
then you activate this card..they won't be able to touch ya 0_o (if you have the
right amount of cards left in yer deck) so you won't be overkilled, and
hopefully you will have good card draws (or cards like Goku's Ready) and
people to kill your opponent before they kill you. I think it's just as
good in this environment as it is in the Standard environment
