Mudbray -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Mudbray Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mudbray from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Mudbray is a Basic, Fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move on this card is called Stomp, for two Energy cards, one each of Fighting and Colorless, this move does 20 damage, plus, if you get a heads when flipping a coin, the move does an additional 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mudbray is a Basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Mudsdale, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, there isn't much use for this card in a deck, mainly because it is slow on the attack, and even if you're able to flip a heads when attacking, 40 damage for two Energy cards isn't much.  There are plenty of better Basic, Fighting type Pokemon out there to use for your deck.  If you are forced to use this card in your deck, Burning Energy, and Regirock EX are two ways to increase the amount of damage when attacking with Mudbray.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Mudsdale, this is a well below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Sure, as a Basic Pokemon with a Stage 1 evolution, 80 HP is above average, but with the slow attack cost on this card and the higher retreat cost, there is no reason to waste two Energy cards on this card to only do a maximum of 40 damage per turn.  Look elsewhere when building a Fighting type deck.
