It's been a while since I didn't see Plasma packs in ladder. Maybe were not so long ago but, I was not playing full and honestly, there are ladders that I don't even arrive to complete first step, although being good rewards as Acerola FA or Guzma FA (I think it was!).

 

I keep 4 Sycamore FA since the late XY era, when price went a bit down as I don't manage too much packs at all. But I keep adding RA Juniper to my Expanded decks although not being so fancy. I feel great with her. Don't know if because she was THE supporter when I began to play or why, Just a feeling.

 

I started this same week thinking it was time to replace my FA Sycamore copies for FA Juniper, even if I had to trade my FA Sycamore's away (which is not the goal anyway but if helps I'll do). And I got my first FA Juniper (ever) on trades surprisingly fast.

 

Next surprise was to discover she is the 2000 points reward so in mind, complete this ladder and get my second. If I can do, one less to try on trades, which are not the easiest because of low availability/demand. Of course if you're rich in packs this is not a problem. Not my case with the time I have to play.

 

So is great she is there "for free" :)

 

In addition, Plasma are my fav sets, being Blast my favourite and more cards I have of the 3, Freeze is the one everyone loves because of SR UB, and probably also Sygiliph, Empoleon, Garbodor, Garchomp, Max potion and FA Ghetsis (sadly banned). Has always been the Roaring Skies or the Guardians Rising of its era which means for the majority of players, the best pack through time.

 

So I just thought myself and had to come to say, whoever decided this would be this 3 weeks ladder: thank you :wub:

 

Sincerely,

 

(A happy) Chasista ^_^

Wait, this rotation we have FA Juniper? Looks like it's time to grind xd Excelent timing, too. My vacations start next week so I'll actually be able to complete the ladder this time. As Chasista said, many thanks to the ones that decided this.

On a side note, how much are you looking for in exchage for a Sycamore? I know this isn't the trading section so I'll keep it brief. I have some packs to spare right now so I might be interested.

Actually, you can get FA Sycamore at 2 Rising in public easily. People offers 1 LOT and although some people asks for 3 LOT or GRi there are lower offers just over or below.

 

Most of the offers involve Sycamore as a part of a medium/high price GX to fill it up. I think Sycamore's value seems higher this way.

 

But as for getting the card itself, I would try offering 1 LOT or GRI + another random pack, just improving the lonely pack offer without arriving the one of 2 high value packs. I think you have high chances to get it this way.

The regular professor juniper says I can't use it it keeps saying putting it or professor sycamore in your deck makes it illegal deck in standard play. Can I assume the full art juniper will do the same?

Well, yes. Both Sycamore and Juniper rotated out of Standard a good while ago.

They're both legal in Expanded, though keep in mind you can only have one or the other.


The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.

You can combine them as long as you don't exceed 4 total between both right? I'm going to be really sad if that's not the case xd

No.

You can add only OR Juniper, OR Sycamore.

 

Even though you add just 1 copy of Sycamore, you cannot add a Juniper then, and opposite. So your play set MUST be one OR the other. There is no possibility of any combination.

 

Sorry, you sad now :unsure:

Seriously? (Yes, seriously.)

 

Despite my never planning on using Juniper at all, that ruling either needs to go away or be expanded to ALL cards that have identical functionality with just a name change. Especially when it's Supporters.

 

It is still perfectly legal to build a deck with 4 Tierno and 4 Hau. Sure, they're weaker, but this is "an errata ruling," not a "card too strong, must ban having more than 4" ruling.

I agree. And not only supporters, but I would not add pokémon probably. (And I actually thought, based on the Juniper/Sycamore experience, this was for any "reprinted" card with a different name! I see it's not)

I think pokemon are already completely restricted by the 4-card limit. Is there any way for a reprint to get around it? Unless you consider type variants identical ***. the new infernape)?

You cannot add more than 4 copies of same name. No matter the type or set. But you still can add 4 Cheren+ 4 Tierno+ 4 Hau being "the same card".

 

That's why "reprint", in quotes. Different names means they are allowed.

 

So should be too for Juniper and Sycamore. Or apply for all "do the same" trainers.
