Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.

Friday: Omystar

70 HP is way to low for a stage 2. Water gun is another average attack.=\ Spike Cannon is decent with an average of 30. For a stage 2 it's attacks aren't worth it. 

Standard 1/5
Modified 1.5/5
MMF 1.5/5
Draft 2/5


Omastar - Another weak card.  This evolves from omanyte, which noone will use except for the power.  That evolves from mysterious fossil.  The chances of this hitting the board and slim at best.  If it does it's not a significant threat either.  HP is low for a stage 2.  1 Retreat is not bad but not above average to 70 HP.  40 for 4... 60 for 2 if you're lucky.  Flippy and Horrible can define this card.  Also, lots of grass can take this out. Scythers are just good.

Omastar, 70 hp is solid for a stage one, but this is a stage 2! Water gun is exactly the same as Psyducks attack and 40 damage for 4 energy is pathetic. Spike cannon on average will do 30 for 2 energy which is nothing special...for a basic. Omastar would be better if it was a stage 1, but even then it wouldn't see much play. Omastar, even without mentioning its weakness to grass, is among the worst stage 2 Pokemon made.

Friday - Omastar

This is nice. At first glance, it's not. But I think it could be playable, if it's basic/stage1 weren't so mediocre. Water Gun is somewhat good, and the second attack is =/. Basically, it has no place in any constructed format, but it can be REALLY good in limited.

Omastar (Level 32, LC)

This Omastar (like Omanyte) was originally introduced the Fossil expansion. It is really an interesting card to say the least.

Neither attack does solid damage for their cost.

Water Gun is the standard of the Water Gun attack. The base damage is 20 with 10 more for each additional. It will do 40 damage at most for 4 Water energy.

The Second attack (Spike Cannon), on average does 30 damage for the 2 water energy.

In Unlimited, 70 HP barely gets you anywhere when it's on a stage 1, but on a stage 2? No thanks.

Having to evolve from a Mysterious Fossil, then having to protect the 40HP Omanyte is just a chore.

In Modified, it just dosen't do enough damage. It will get KO'ed easily and cant fend for itself.

In MMF, It's an even bigger chore getting it out because there isn't that much card drawing. The attacks don't make doing this worth it.

Finally, draft. The Omanyte woulden't have to be protected as much because theres not too much of a threat of Gust here. But still, drafting Mysterious Fossil, the stage 1, and stage 2 will be easier said than done.

Overall, bad attacks. Bad HP. Bad Evolutions.

Unlimited- 1 out of 5
Modified- 1 out of 5
Neon- 1 out of 5
Draft- 1 out of 5 is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
