Card of the Week!
So what are your thoughts on the New Gyarados GX?? 240 HP is nothing to scoff at however a 4 retreat cost is just scary. The Weakness is unfortunate in this meta not to mention having to evolve from magikarp. Do you think it potential to do 200 damage is something that could see play?? Let us know in the comments below.
Shadow HuntThis Pokémon can use the attacks of any Basic Pokémon in your discard pile. (You still need the necessary Energy to use each attack.)
(F)(F)(C) Beatdown 120
(F) Peerless Hundred Blows-GX
50× This attack does 50 damage times the amount of basic Energy attached to this Pokémon. (You can't use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)
Marshadow is one of those cards where the community seems to be split about 50/50 as to its playability. It has seen some niche play in Night March (such as the Daytona Regionals Semifinalist Gustavo Wada who played one in his Night March deck)
I really like the potential of the card especially if Night March stays as big in the expanded format as it has been. It does have the unique benefit of hitting the ever popular Darkrai for weakness but has a weakness to A LOT of popular cards (including the deck it most likely would be played in Night March) With Garbodor and Necorzma both seeing a lot of play it really hurts the potential of this card.
150 Hp is such a weird number I am happy that it was given more than its semi counterpart Mew EX but still the 150 number is not hard to hit.
Single retreat cost is expected.
Ratings: (using a out of five baseline)
Standard: 2/5 I don't see a lot of decks playing this card in standard especially with the Necrozma decks currently running wild
Expanded: 3/5 Right now it really is only seeing play in nightmarch and really only as a one of.
Artwork: 3/5 Seems fairly basic nothing really stands out too much to be.
