Pokemon Card of the Day: Dialga (Call of Legends)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dialga from the Call of Legends set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Like Deoxys from yesterday, this card is pretty bland, it doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body and it only has one move called Time Rewind which takes 4 Metal energy cards and does 70 damage and allows you to shuffle your hand into your deck. As far as strategy goes I would recommend keeping Dialga on your bench until you get 3 or 4 energy cards on it and I would consider moving it into your active Pokemon spot either when your hand is quite small or you don't have any in your hand or you need a certain card, that way when you move Dialga in you can rotate through many cards in your deck by using Dialga a couple of times in a row. The only bad thing about this card is that it is a metal type and that it has a high retreat cost so if you do put it into your active Pokemon spot I would use it until it dies because 3 energy cards is too much to waste by just moving it in for one turn and then retreating it. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because even though it has a powerful move, since it is a basic Pokemon, its move takes to long to perform and its retreat cost is too high, if I were to use this card in my deck I would only use 1 of these in my deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Dialga from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Groudon from the same set.

Perhaps this is a good card against Vilegar (No hand, no trainers, which means No Poltergeist damage!)

Question about Time Rewind: Using the move results in your hand being shuffled into the deck. Do you get to draw any cards back out, or are you left with no cards?
