M Steelix EX -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Mega Steelix EX Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Steelix EX from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  M Steelix EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, metal and fighting dual type Pokemon card with a HP of 240. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  M Steelix does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Canyon Axe, for 5 energy cards, 4 colorless and 1 metal, this move does 160 damage, plus 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is a Mega Evolution card and an EX card so if you use this card in your deck and it gets knocked out, your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one and when you evolve an EX card into its Mega Evolution, your turn ends, you cannot do anything else.  So knowing these things, you'll always want to use Mega Evolution cards with caution, with that being said, you'll always want to use the appropriate Spirit Link trainer card do evolve the EX card into its Mega EX form so you don't have to end your turn.  So knowing how Mega EX cards worth and knowing that Steelix EX wasn't that great, mainly because it was extremely slow on the attack and under-powered, there is no reason to use more than a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family if you want to include this card in a deck.  You'll want to set the line up on the bench, getting 5 energy cards on this card before attacking, Double Colorless energy cards will help.  You can definitely play this card in a spread attack type deck, since Canyon Axe spreads damage around.  If you aren't building a spread attack type deck, this card isn't worth it, since it requires so many energy cards to use.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Mega EX Pokemon card on its own.  This card does do major damage, not only to the opposing Pokemon, but to your opponent's benched Pokemon as well, but because both Pokemon in this line are really slow on the attack, combined I can only give this line a 2 out of 5 rating.
