Pokemon Card of the Day: Magmortar (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Magmortar from the 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, the first move is called Top Burner and takes one fire energy card and this move lets you discard a card from the top of your opponent's deck for each fire energy card attached to Magmortar, then at the end of your turn flip a coin and if it is tails you have to discard all energy cards attached to Magmortar. Magmortar's second move is called Burst Punch and this move does the standard 60 hp damage for 3 energy cards, 2 fire and one colorless, plus it burns the defending Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes I would use Top Burner at the end of the game when my opponent is running out of cards in their deck, I would try and win the game by having my opponent run out of cards in their deck, besides that I would only use Burst Punch any other time in the game which will knock out most Pokemon in two turns especially since the move burns the defending Pokemon too. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because both moves are above normal, Top Burner gives you a way to win at the end of the game and Burst Punch is better than average because it burns the Pokemon and does 60 damage. So thanks for reading today's review of Magmortar from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Nidoqueen from Triumphant.
