• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup

  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

When I read the effect of Lysandre's Last Resort, the first thing that popped into my head was: "Holy hell!"

Just imagine being able to essentially reset your deck after going through your resources throughout a game. That is a very powerful effect. Granted, your opponent also gets a deck reset, but still. This might actually give me a reason to not be hesitant on using quad-Juniper/Sycamore in my decks! XD

The card was worded so you can't put it back into your deck through its effect, so it might seem like a one-off, but Pal Pad does exist. Just sayin'.

I particularly like how this card could be used in Expanded or Unlimited play. Suck it, Durant. SUCK IT.
