What do you guys think? I think Klawf ex has a great ability that can be combined with Crushing Hammer to create an annoying energy disruption deck. However, its attack is just too risky and underpowered if you flip tails. But I think Klawf ex can be worth trying and may become a very annoying energy disruption deck. On the other hand, I think Brassius is a very strong supporter because currently, we only have Judge, Shauna, and Copycat as our shuffling supporters and none of them seems to be powerful enough so you can draw many cards. I think Brassius can be a very interesting card if you use it in decks like Lost Zone or Mew VMAX.
