Matthew Low
Black Energy Drain - Dragon Ball GT Lost Episodes Saga Uncommon - #55 Combat – Physical

Power: "Physical attack doing 13 power stages of damage. Masked. Focused.
Train an Ability."
Endurance: 1

Sigh. Silly card with extra happy bonus abilities that really nothing to jump for joy over.
The attack is bland; there is much better out there. Masked could throw an opponent for a loop. Focused is great but that only matters if big damage or great secondary effects are in play, neither which is true (any more). Train an Ability, great, but I haven’t been won over by Ability training, at least in Black.

You’re much better off, IMO, running a better Masked attack with a good effect.

Expanded: 1.6 out of 5.0 (Nothing amazing)
Focused: 1.8 out of 5.0 (ditto)
Sealed: 4.3 out of 5.0 (you might as well run it with little options)
Richard Barbee Black Energy Drain
Combat, Physical
Physical attack doing 13 power stages of damage. Masked. Focused. Train an ability.

Okay, I chose this card as just some random card from LES. Basically, it's beatdown. Train an ability is nice and all that, but Black doesn't have that many abilities. Focused means it stands a better chance of hitting. 13 power stages is a lot to take. And last, but not least, it is masked meaning that you can laugh when your opponent throws that omni-block just to have it shoved right back into their face because it is focused. So, what's the downsides to it. Lots. There are plenty of better cards to pick over this one, unless you're going for straight beatdown. It's a nice card, but don't hurt yourself trying to fit it into your deck. This is really a better card for players on a budget, as it provides nice damage and some support, and is relativly easy to find. You can combo this with Ledgic, Oceanous, or Black Concealed Mastery for some additional bonuses. Other than that, it's not great. It's not broke. But it can get the job done, depending on your deck.

Expanded: 2.5/5 (Read the review)
Focused: 3/5 (Less decent attacks, so do keep this in mind when building a focused deck)
Sealed: 5/5 (It's an attack. It's beefy. It's... just run it)
Ok guys, I got to be honest. I don t know too much about this card, so if my review is bad, I m sorry. But lets see what I can do For starters, it s Masked. Focused. It also trains Ability. So that s pretty good. One thing I do understand about this card, is that it does 13 Power Stages of damage, so that can go either way. If its Goku at a high power level, like SS4, he ll just get it all back, so its worthless on him. If used on a lower level guy, he or she won t get it back as fast, and some good chances to inflict damage.

Exp- 3/5
Foc- 3/5
Sea- 3/5
