Muk ex -- EX Dragon Pokemon Card Review

Muk Pokemon Card EX Dragon Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Muk ex from the EX Dragon set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Muk's Poke-Body is called Toxic Gas and says that as long as Muk is your active Pokemon you may ignore all other Poke-Bodies and Poke-Powers. Besides the Poke-Body, Muk ex has two moves, the first move is called Poison Breath which takes one grass energy card and does 10 damage to the defending Pokemon and poisons that Pokemon. Muk's second move is called Slimy Water which takes three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 40 damage plus 10 more damage for each colorless energy in the defending Pokemon's retreat cost.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
If I could play this card today, this would be the perfect card to combat extremely powerful Pokemon that usually have extremely high retreat costs. Let's say a Pokemon has a four colorless energy card retreat cost then I could use Slimy Water and do 80 damage every turn. The only down thing about this card is that it doesn't have too high of hp so I would make sure and retreat Muk if it's close to feinting. The artwork on this card is done by Hikaru Koike and I don't really like it, it is too abstract for my style. I have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $3, on Professor-Oak it sells for $9 and on PokeOrder it goes for $22.49. So this is another ex card from this set that doesn't sell for much.

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

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Muk ex from the EX Dragon set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Rayquaza ex from the EX Dragon set.
