Steelix EX -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Steelix Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Steelix EX from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Steelix EX is a basic, EX, metal type Pokemon card with a HP of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Steelix EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Wild Edge, for four energy cards, three colorless and one metal, this move does 80 damage plus 50 more damage if you choose to do 20 damage to Steelix EX.  Steelix's second move is called Iron Tail and for five energy cards, four colorless and one metal, this move does 100 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Steelix 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.  Steelix EX does have a Mega EX in this set, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, so you'll want to make sure and read that review.  On its own, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, it is just way too slow, not only does its quickest attack require four energy cards, but this card has a high retreat cost as well.  So unless you want to put one of these in your deck and load it up with energy cards, do not use this card in a deck.  When in the active Pokemon spot, I don't think there is ever a time I would recommend using Iron Tail, it is just too easy to do 0 damage every turn.  Potions will be key with this card if you want to do 130 damage a turn with Wild Edge.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average EX Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, this card is just too slow to use in a deck, plus neither of the moves that this card has is that good.  So unless you plan on using this card with Mega Steelix, do not use this card in a deck.
