Pfft. What is the big deal about this thing?

In unlimited, give me Gligar. I know, it takes TWO whole colorless, and only does 20, but that's what DCE and PlusPower for. I, personally, don't have a coin that's weighted enough to warrant playing Tyrogue. 2/5

In modified, there's scarce little fighting weak stuff about. FTKO is possible, but anybody who's any measure of intelligence is playing lots of Basics. Baby VS Baby is a 25% chance of KO, at least in my non-rigged-coin-world, and if it's not first turn you should have a Metal on Cleffa if you can spot a Rogue. Bleh. I just don't get it. 2/5

In limited, though... A common baby who can do 30... In a "limited" environment, it's worth risking the flips. Plus, it fits anywhere. And it's an extra basic and possibly a stall. Schway. 3.5/5


Friday Tyrogue:
    ... =)! My favorite card, PERIOD. Oh man... what a cult... erm card. Ok, to make a long story short, the obsession with this card began on March 30th, in St. Louis, MO. Croconaw88 and I were in the finals of the GC. It was amazing... I won the flip. I had a decent hand, not much of one, and I could either A.) Attempt to Eeeeeeek, or B.) Attempt to win the game with a Smash Punch. Of course, this was against a Cleffa.
    Ok, truthfully, I know they weren't the best odds, but 1/4 to win a trip to Seattle? Especially when I already had good odds to win due to type advantage? Sure, what the heck. So I did it. Heads on baby rule, heads on smash punch. Game. Unbelievable.
    Now, Croc and I have obsessed over this card ever since... we play 2 in every modified deck, and have made mono-tyrogue decks. -_-
    It IS a big joke... mind you...
Standard Rating: 4/5 (Great against chansey, wigglytuff, clefable, electabuzz, etc.)
Modified Rating: 2.5/5 (Oh man Croc's going to kill me for this, but honestly, it's not THAT good. It's fun though ;x)
Draft Rating: 4/5 (Very good here.)

This baby's rank deserves a position in the top 5 Babies of all time. The other 4 are Cleffa, Pichu (NG), Igglybuff (Promo), and Elekid.

Anyways, it's a baby can dish out a lot of damage as an attacker. One colorless energy for a 50/50 chance of doing 30 damage is nice.

In Unlimited, I like to splash Tyrogue against Chansey, Clefable, and Wiggly. One of my current Unlimited decks is basically a Sneasel + Pichu + Tyrogue. You can call it a Snichu deck for all I care...

In Modified, it's not really that good. Evos have high HP so 30 damage is not that much.

In Draft, Tyrogue is amazing! It's splashable, fast, and deals damage. Plus, it's a common!

Unlimited Rating: 4/5
Modified Rating: 3.5/5
Draft Rating: 4.5/5
Crokanaw88 Friday: Tyrogue

I am crazy about this card. It all started when RaNd0m rogued me but he has that story.;x In Standard tyrogue pwnz. With a some of the main decks having weakness to fighting ( Wiggly and Chansey) makes it great. FTKOing a lone Jiggly or Cleffa is sweet.

In Modified Rogueing is even more common. Whenever anyone gets a lone baby they flat out "RESIGN" because they know they will be Tyrogued.

As for Draft if you get it the rest of the pod might as well resign. Some people say Elekid owNz Tyrogue but that is false. ;/ This might sound crazy and if it does I blame it all on RaNd0m. =p

Standard 3.5/5
Modified 4/5Draft 4/5
"You're SO tyrogued" ~ Croconaw88

Savior Tyrouge - I don't usually play this card... The only time I use this is if I'm trying to counter/meta my weakness. In standerd, It's a baby that attacks, can ko some things in one hit, and can kill things like electabuzz and wigglytuff with darkness or plus powers. I hate flip attacks. I would consider playing neo 1 pikachu over this card for the soul fact of if I get tails I still do 10 damage. Then again it doesn't have a retreat and has that ever so good baby power. In stander he could be support if you didn't need any other cards. If draft he would be a decent pick for sure.

Unlimited: 2

Modified: 2.5
