Special: ゲットだぜ!Decks and Gifts From Afar  

It's been a while since my last Getto Daze post, and while this one is small, it's still full of things I'm very ecstatic over! Two new decks, and a total surprise package that was full of sweet treasures galore. Two of the major things I got in this I hope to scan sooner rather than later, too, but until now I've got photos up at least.

Dive in below the cut to take a look!

First up in my recent haul: the brand new Xerneas and Yveltal half decks. I was a bit too ill and otherwise occupied yesterday to open them when they arrived, so today was the day.

Xerneas' whole deck is fairy-type, and it's pretty damn awesome for it (so much pink!) -- included in each deck is a special booster pack which has six cards instead of the usual five, with the sixth card being a promo that can only be obtained through the deck.

I'm very, very biased, but these three cards were the ones I was most excited for when the deck lists got released.

Yveltal deck -- like the Xerneas deck it's a single type focus, in this case dark, and also comes with a special deck-exclusive booster with promo card inserted.

And I had some extremely good luck in my pack. As far as I can tell the main contents are all randomised save for the promo -- a Japanese follower of mine also pulled a YveltalEX SR card but the rest of their pack was totally different!

The two promos in question. Pancham and Clefairy.

Secondly: I got a wonderful surprise package from Nate, fellow card lover and conspirator from Bulbapedia, with a hoard of gap filling promos and sweet birdy cards! This was such a wonderful thing to get in the mail~!

Gap filling came in across the board from 2003-2007. Turtwig had eluded me for a while even though I had it's other partners in crime from that meiji set, and the other three are PCG-P strays that I was missing. Super bonus points for two of them being Combustken with Mitsuhiro Arita artwork!

I also got sent these little darlings; two of my favourite birds in reverse holo! I don't collect English cards anymore so I didn't have these dears!

And to add even more cherries to the top: holo versions of EBB cards which were non-holo in the Japanese release. Also featuring more birds. Gee I wonder if I'm perhaps biased to a certain kind of Pokemon... ;) I can't thank Nate enough for this really sweet parcel, and I'm just touched in general that he thought of me, let alone bundled all these up and sent them my way.

So what are those promos? I'm a smidge confused regarding them Callie. They come in a booster pack?

Those promos are 014 and 015 XY-P, and the only way to get them is in the special booster pack that comes with the deck :) So the booster pack is still a 5-card booster pack, but it's got the promo in the back as a special 6th card!

Darn! Didn't order those decks! Thanks!
