Magearna EX -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Magearna EX Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magearna EX from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Magearna EX is a basic, EX, metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 160. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Magearna EX's Ability is called Mystic Heart and says that all effects of attacks, excluding damage, done to any of your Pokemon that have metal energy attached to them are prevented.  Besides the Ability, Magearna EX has one move called Soul Blaster, for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 120 damage, however during Magearna's next turn, this move only does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Magearna 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 about Magearna EX, it would make most sense to use this card in a heavily metal type deck, that way you can utilize its Ability and help all Pokemon in play with metal type energy cards attached to them.  Other than that, this card can hit pretty hard, doing 120 damage a turn and 180 damage in two turns.  Even with 60 base damage a turn, it is an average move.  So, overall, I would recommend playing this card in a metal type deck, and if desperate enough, you could definitely play this card in almost all type decks since it requires mainly colorless energy.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  I like that this card has a solid Ability, above average move, and a low retreat cost.  This card works well in metal type decks, can do major damage and help other Pokemon in play as well.  So, you can't go wrong by including this card in your deck.
