Pokemon Card of the Day: Mismagius (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Mismagius from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. Unfortunately once again, this rare card has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, but it does have a -20 resistance to normal type Pokemon, and a low retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Mismagius doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Sleeping Spell, this move does 30 damage for one psychic energy card and you also flip a coin when you use this move and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is now asleep. Mismagius' second move is entitled Poltergeist and this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic. This move does 30 damage times the number of trainer, supporter, and stadium cards in your opponent's hand. So as far as strategy goes I would use Sleeping Spell before I use Poltergeist, I would try and use Sleeping Spell until I flip a head, that way you can hope your opponent can't awake from its sleep and therefore can't attack you. A good way to know when to use Poltergeist would be when your opponent uses a card that lets them take cards from their deck and then show them to you, that way you know for sure if they have the necessary cards to do at least 30 damage. Another strategy to use would be to use a Poke-Power that lets you look at your opponent's hand, that way you can calculate the amount of damage you can do and figure out if Poltergeist is worth using or not. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because overall it is a little below average with only 80 hp and two moves that neither do much damage. In my opinion, once I use Poltergeist once, my opponent would probably use their supporters, and etc. more quickly so I can't use that against them, so after one turn that move will probably only do 30 damage at the max. So thanks for reading today's review of Mismagius from the Undaunted set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Undaunted card.
