"The Black and the White" – Talking Texas, Exploring Expanded, and Synthesizing Sydney Standard


This is the companion discussion topic for this article.


Wobbuffett BREAK is this year’s Salamence EX, the expensive promo that is suddenly relevant but rotates soon and will be worth nothing in six months. And as a 3-of rather than 1-of, that stings.


On the topic of good but expensive cards.

The box with the Xurkitree Promo was AU$100 here. Bought one very begrudgingly.

Fortunately pre-releases of the new set means there’s Full Arts/Rainbow Rares floating around.

I’d say it’s a fair guess that Wobbuffet BREAK won’t be very existent here either based purely on availability of the card. Hilarious to see a BREAK card that isn’t Greninja in 2018.

Hopefully see you in Sydney :slight_smile:
