Cyrus’s Lost World- Absol G and Palkia G.

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Hey all members of Omar-Nation, this is Pikkdogs here with a deck analysis. This article is about a lost world deck. Not to be confused about one of my favorite novels,”The Lost World”, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  If you haven’t read it, I recommend it. Its about Dinosaurs, poisoned arrows, and Hot Air Balloons, what could be better than that?  But anyway, this article is about  the card, not the novel.                                 

Like most people out there, I had long been interested by Lost World, and was thinking of ways to use the card.  Most people were thinking of using Gengar Prime, but without Claydol, Gengar decks aren’t as consistent as they should be.  Since they are also slower, it is very easy to play around Gengar.  So I looked for other ways to play Lost World.

I remembered a match that I played at 2009 Fall Battle Roads against a person from Ohio.  He was using a speed version of the Cyrus Engine, and Absol G to place a lot of cards in the lost zone.  I ended up winning that game, but I always remembered that unique deck.  So when I saw Lost World, I thought it was the right time to copy that guys idea and make a deck out of it.

So thats how I came up with Cyrus’s Lost World.  The purpose of this deck is to get 6 Pokemon in the lost zone as fast as possible.  This is achieved by using Palkia G and Absol G.  Palkia will mostly be around to limit the opponent’s bench and clear room on your own, though it can help to put their opponent in the Lost Zone.  Of course, Palkia G has a “Lost Cyclone” Poke-Power that lets each player choose three benched Pokemon, and the rest go to the Lost Zone.  Absol G will be the main Pokemon that puts others in the Lost Zone.  He has a Poke-Power “Darkness Send”, that lets you send up to the top 3 cards of your opponent’s deck into the lost zone, based on coin flips.

Top 5 Impactful Cards of Call of Legends.

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Hey all members of Omar-Nation, this is Pikkdogs here with a set review and the top 5 cards of Call of Legends.

If you look on any Pokemon site now a days, you will find no shortage of people bashing this set.  A lot of people are calling it the worst set ever, and are just mad at it. It only has a handful of playable cards, and most cards are reprints of so-so cards from the last couple sets.  Most players call this set a total blunder for Play Pokemon.  The poster child for this so called blunder is Phanpy.  Phanpy has a Poke-Body that twice misspells its names.  The card just sums up what a lot of people think Play Pokemon did with this set.

But, there are people who think that this set is pretty good, we call these people collectors.  These collectors love challenges, and this set features 11 shiny Pokemon, that is what I call a challenge.  There is sure to be value in these Shiny Pokemon if you pull any from the pack, a lot of collectors will be happy to find the rare cards of this set.

Besides being a good set …
