Mudsdale -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Mudsdale Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mudsdale from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Mudsdale is a Stage 1, Fighting type Pokemon card, with a HP of 140. It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Mudsdale does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Enhanced Stomp, for three Energy cards, two Fighting and one Colorless, this move does 60 damage, plus if this card has a Pokemon Tool card attached to it, the attack does 60 more damage.  High Horsepower is the name of this card's second move, for four Energy cards, three Fighting, and one Colorless, this move does 180 damage, however the move does do 40 damage to Mudsdale.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mudsdale is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Mudbray into play (I reviewed Mudbray from this set yesterday) and then evolve Mudbray into Mudsdale.  If you read yesterday's review of Mudbray, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card overall.  Although it does have a high HP, and can do up to 60 damage per turn, it is limited in that it only has one move, and its only move is slow on the attack and requires coin flips to do damage.  So knowing this about Mudbray and looking at this Mudsdale card, if you want to use this Pokemon line, I would recommend setting it up on your Bench, since both moves on this card require lots of Energy cards.  Once set up, this card is decent on the attack, especially if you're using a Pokemon Tool card on this card, therefore making it do 120 damage per turn for only three Energy cards.  So while this card is slow to set up, if you're using Pokemon Tool cards in your deck, I would recommend using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family, that way you don't have to waste too many Energy cards setting this line up on the Bench.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card overall.  Despite being incredibly slow to set up, once set up, this card is very powerful, doing 120 to 180 damage every single turn.  Add in the fact that the HP on this card is similar to Stage 2 Pokemon, this card should certainly be considered when building a Fighting type deck.  Together with Mudbray from this set, I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating.
