Magcargo ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Magcargo ex Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magcargo ex from the EX Dragon 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 three colorless energy card retreat cost. Magcargo doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Melting Mountain which does 20 damage for one fire energy card, however when performing this move you must discard a card from your deck if that card is an energy card you can attach it to Magcargo. Magcargo's second move is called Lava Flow which takes three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, and does 40 damage plus 20 more damage for each energy card you choose to discard when you perform this move.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
The artwork on this card makes Magcargo seem extremely tough and unstoppable, it looks like Magcargo is inside of a Volcano, thus you would think fire moves wouldn't have any effect on it. The artwork was done by Hikaru Koike, I like the background on this card but not the actual drawing of Magcargo. If I were to use this card in battle I would use Magcargo ex once, by using Lava Flow and discarding all three energy cards attached to it and do 100 damage and then slowly build up to do Lava Flow again. I have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $4, on Professor-Oak it sells for $16.54 and on PokeOrder it goes for $14.99. This ex card is one of the least expensive cards from this set.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Ampharos, Dragonite, Golem, Kingdra, Latias, Latios, Muk, and Rayquaza.
