Pokemon Card of the Day: Magmortar (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Magmortar from the soon to be released Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, fire type, Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Magmortar doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Wildfire and this move takes one fire energy card and this move lets you discard a number of cards from the top of your opponent's deck equal to the number of fire energy cards attached to Magmortar, but the downfall to this move is that you have to flip a coin and if you get tails then you have to discard all fire energy cards attached to Magmortar. Magmortar's second move is called Flaming Punch which does the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, in this case 2 fire type, and 1 colorless energy card. As far as strategy goes I would keep this card on my bench and put 3 energy cards onto it before putting it into my active Pokemon spot, the only time I would use Wildfire would be if it is getting towards the end of the game and my opponent is getting down there in cards in their deck and by using this move it will win the game for me, otherwise I would just always use Flaming Punch. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because overall it is very average, I was thinking about giving it a 2 but I think there are a lot of possibilities for its Wildfire move. So thanks for reading today's review of Magmortar from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Electivire.

Yea, this card is mediocre at best... I could maybe see Wildfire seeing some decks built around it, but that flip kills the urge to use it.

This card is unusable. The first attack is a novelty at best with a flippy drawback. The second attack is just avarage at best and is nothing special which makes it a bad rare and the worst Magmortar card to date.

The Unleashed and Supreme Victors Magmortar cards are better and it has nothing on SW Magmortar.
