Pokemon Card of the Day: Mismagius (Unleashed)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Mismagius from the Unleashed set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to colorless type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Mismagius's Poke-Power is called Magical Trans and this move allows you to move a psychic energy card attached to one of your Pokemon to another Pokemon once per turn. So with this move you could either start moving energy cards off of a Pokemon that may be knocked out soon or move energy from all of your other Pokemon to a Pokemon that needs a lot of energy on your bench very quickly. Mismagius's only move is called Psychic Pulse and this move does 30 damage for only one psychic energy card plus it does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon that have any damage counters on them. So this card is very essential in spread type decks and can really be powerful if you use it with a card that does 10 damage to benched Pokemon regardless if they have damage on it or not that way when you use this card in your active Pokemon spot Psychic Pulse will do damage to every Pokemon in play. I would suggest getting this card on your bench as soon as possible so you can transfer energy cards if you like, it would have been nice to have unlimited transfers but that would be too dominant. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because it is a very good spread damage type Pokemon and it only needs one energy card to use this move plus it does 30 damage which is pretty good for only one energy card. So thanks for reading today's review of Mismagius from the Unleashed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Xatu from Unleashed.

For this card I have mixed feelings, the above-average 30 plus ten for each damaged benched and the magical trans are really exccelent additions to any psychic deck which focuses on spread damage and attacks which cost loads of energy. But there is the conundrum--how many fast psychic pokemon can do more than 60 or good spread damage consistently which require more than 1 or 2 energy? There are Gengar (AR with shadow skip)and, Metagross (UL), and Dusknoir (either of them from SF,) I don't include Gengar Lv. X because he needs benched pokemon to be damaged. All are decent back-up or main attackers, but i've tried these decks and out of my personal experience Mismagius makes the decks slower, trying to set it up and once he is, trying to keep him alive. It can be advantageous if your opponent cannot attack the bench, but with Garchomp C Lv. X rampant it is unlikely that this will be the case. So alone just looking at it it is good, even worthy in my eyes of the 4/5, but in practice it is barely worth the effort of including in a deck, deserving the low rating of 2/5.
