Meh..this card is alright.. pretty useful if you know you're gonna get the
snot beaten of you in combat if your opponent knocked you to 0 last combat, and it's their turn >_<..gotta hate that situation.. thankfully
this'll help you get out of that :)

Tuff Enuff: 2.8
Chibi Surprising Strength Drill

This was a great card for pre-release. It ensures that you can perform a normal energy attack every phase. This Drill can also guarantee that you won't be at zero, when your opponent is trying to beat you
down. You can also use it to manipulate your discard pile so you get what you want off the bottom. With all that said, there's still not any room in most decks for this card. This would have been a cool card
around Trunks Saga.

In Standard, this card can save your life. It should only be played in a deck that has a hard time keeping up its power stages.

In Tuff Enuff, this Drill probably won't stay out for very long. But if you have it out at the right time, you might just live through a massive beat.

This card is useful, but nothing to jump up and down about.  The main use I see in this card is that it allows you to play energy decks with a little less worry of running out of power stages to perform your attacks.  It's a very interesting card.  I think it will see some play, but probably won't dominate any tournament scenes.
