Kyurem EX -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Tynamo Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyurem EX from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Kyurem is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kyurem EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Outrage, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Kyurem.  Kyurem's second move is called Giga Frost, this move requires four energy cards, two each of colorless and water, and does 150 damage, however after using this move, you must discard two water energy cards from Kyurem.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Kyurem EX is a basic Pokemon card you won't need to use any other cards with this card.  But remember, because this card is an EX card, if this card is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  So knowing this, you definitely won't want to use too many of this EX card in a deck.  This card is probably one of the poorer EX cards out there, but if do include this card in your deck I would keep it on the bench, put at least four energy cards on it, then late in the game when you need a one hit KO, move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Giga Frost.  Another strategy you could take with this card is to use this in a deck where one of your Pokemon does damage to your benched Pokemon, that way you could already get damage on Kyurem, up to 170 damage, and then do 200 damage in one turn with Outrage and knockout every Pokemon that could possibly be in the active Pokemon spot in one turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very average EX Pokemon card.  So compared to the first two EX Pokemon cards in this set, this one is much worse, but I still think it is average overall.  I definitely couldn't see myself building a deck around this card just because it can't do that much damage very quickly, and the only way it can do a lot of damage is too have consequences (either discarding energy or having damage on Kyurem) so it definitely isn't a card to build a deck around.  This is just a supporting type card in your deck, and one that doesn't have to be in every water type deck out there.

What are the other EX cards from this set that do not have EX Full Art versions?
Please respond by including the correct answer and a link to your YouTube channel.  I will give the first person with the correct answer the code card, and an estimate for the price of Deoxys is what I'm asking, as long as you're in $10 of what I know the price is I will consider it a right answer.

there are no other cards!

BTW, I dont think Kyurem EX is a great card, but it has some combos you didnt mention. The most obvious one is with Blastoise to keep him hitting every turn. Yes Keldeo is better.
