Keldeo EX Full Art -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Keldeo EX Full Art Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Keldeo EX from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  This is the third of three consecutive Keldeo Pokemon cards that I'll be reviewing from this set.  The previous two Keldeo cards I have reviewed were both basic Pokemon and both pretty good.  Today's card is an EX card so if you want to when building a deck you may include 4 Keldeo and 4 Keldeo EX, but you'll have to read in the strategy section of this review to see what I suggest.  So Keldeo EX Full Art is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 170.  Keldeo has a x2 damage to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Keldeo EX's Ability is called Rush In which says that once during your turn if you have Keldeo on your bench, you may move it into the active Pokemon spot without having to fork over energy cards by using the retreat cost of your active Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Keldeo EX has one move called Secret Sword which requires three energy cards, all colorless, and does 50 damage plus 20 more damage for each water energy card attached to Keldeo EX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Keldeo is a basic EX Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Because Keldeo's only move requires three energy cards, I would set up Keldeo EX on the bench, get three energy cards on it, then when your active Pokemon gets in trouble, use Keldeo's Ability and retreat your active Pokemon spot for free and put in Keldeo EX.  Once Keldeo EX is in the active Pokemon spot, use Secret Sword every turn, make sure to attach three water energy cards to Keldeo EX so that this move can do 110 damage per turn.  I would definitely recommend building a deck based around this EX card, I would include this card in a water deck, and possibly include two Keldeo EX and two regular Keldeo.  I wouldn't include 4 of each because EX cards can make you lose the game incredibly fast if they're knocked out, and all the Keldeo cards require a good amount of water energy cards to attack so you'll really need to load your deck with water energy cards if you want to use 8 total Keldeos.  But if you use 2 and 2, or less, I would still make sure to have mostly water type Pokemon and energy cards in your deck so you can make Keldeo's moves that much better.  The Pokemon I would pair with Keldeo EX, could be Pokemon that have higher retreat costs since Keldeo's Ability acts as a free retreat cost to your active Pokemon, but I would also make sure to have a few Pokemon that can attack with only an energy card or two so you can attack quickly while loading up your Keldeo cards.  So again, I would definitely recommend using Keldeo EX in a water type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an excellent EX Pokemon card from the Boundaries Crossed set and a great way to end my three days of reviewing Keldeo cards from this set.  This card is even better than the first Keldeo card I reviewed from this set, and I gave that card a 5/5 so this card really is even better than that.  Just remember to tread carefully with this card since if it gets knocked out your opponent gets two prize cards, but hopefully it won't matter if you can dominate your opponent using Keldeo EX.  Overall, I would give all the Keldeo cards in this set a 5/5 rating.
