Wednesday - Cloyster

A very decent card! The hp is great, the first attack is mediocre, and the last attack is very good for the cost! The weirdest thing I saw with this was that IT IS WEAK TO METAL!!! That's definitely twisted.

Steelix will seriously kill this guy though, and steelix is heavily played in all the formats. I think it is best suited for a limited environment.

In unlimited, I'll give him a 2/5. He's a great pokemon, and great for fun play, but in a tournament environment, it's simply not up to par. 

In standard, it has some use. I think it might not be a horrible backup line for a water deck. I'll give it a 2.5/5.

In limited, it's simply awesome. Nobody drafts metal, and the fact that it's got great attacks for the cost makes it even better. I'll rate it 3.5/5.

I don't know why, but I like it.  Really, it looks fun no?  And that is what the game is about.  Not the best, but not bad.  The first attack is cool, but too expensive for what it does.  Auto Fire is sweet.  Kinda like a Crobat or something, just cool man.  I guess it could be in some kinda deck, like double colorless for lick, then a water next turn for Auto Fire.  Neat.

Limited:  Cool as it is, it won't really see play, like the equally cool Politoad =D  2.75/5

Modified: Hmmmm... It would be fun, a suprise, but it won't be used, more so now that the format is dead =/  2.75/5

MMF:  NOW it can see play.  Fire is big here, boys and girls, and he can REALLY hurt those big, bad fire pokemon.  3.5/5

Limited:  VERY nice.  Get him out, and your opponet will be hurting.  But, it is a rare, so that hurts it.  But if you get it, well =D  4/5

Is that a weakness to metal? Now that's new, but bad.  2 energy to do 10 and flip for paralysis???!!!  Did I read it wrong?  That's horrible!!!  It almost makes Dunsparce look good! Auto fire is better, but still not good.  OK, I gotta admit that 80hp is solid and 2 retreat isn't that bad.  I definitely do NOT recommend this card in any deck, unless some genius finds a way to combo it up with Dunsparce and make it broken =D.

After reviewing a great card, we now have to review a really mediocre card, Cloyster. Lick requires one more colorless energy than it should and it does not do enough damage. Auto-Fire is decent with a DCE in Unlimited. In Modified, it's just not worth it. In Draft, since the first attack is colorless, and the 2nd one only requires one colored energy, it's a decent card to draft with but that's about it. =/

Unlimited Rating: 1.8/5 (Don't bother with this card...)
Modified Rating: 2.3/5
Draft Rating: 3/5 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.
