Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Strength Charm

EX Dragon Frontiers


Date Reviewed: 12.11.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1.5
Modified: 3.1
Limited: 3.5

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

2006 World
Definitely a strong card in modified. While most decks would consider this a "luxury card," (that is, a card that isn't bad - but would take up too important of a spot) it is capable of winning you games. The element of surprise ten damage adds can completely catch an opponent offguard and single-handedly win you a game. It also works well with decks that do damage quickly, allowing them a huge +10 damage to use to KO popular 50-60 HP basics.
Modified: 4.5/5

PlusPower is superior as you can attach as many as you wish. Strength Charm

is simply your fifth PlusPower, as the only advantage is it is a tool, but few or no cards exist that abuse or search for tools that are also strong in

Unlimited: 1.5/5

In limited, attacks and damages will be very similar, meaning an extra 10 damage can actually be significant at numerous times during the game.
Limited: 4/5

Strength Charm

Strength Charm is a pretty good card. It has the little bonus that it can never HURT you by being in your deck. An extra 10 damage in certain situations can be devastating.

Unlimited: 1/5

Run Pluspower instead of this

Modified: 4/5

A good card here. Like I said, 10 damage can be the difference between winning and losing a game at times. Being able to Castaway for it is also a nice little bonus.

Limited: 4/5

Play it if you pull it. 10 damage is always going to be useful here.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Strength Charm

Modified 2/5 - This card's effectiveness is very deck-dependant. The important HP/damage thresholds in one hit are probably 90, 100, 110, and 120. Thus, for decks like Scizor ex that deals 80 damage to Evolved Pokemon for 3 Energies, the extra 10 damage means One-Hit KO on Banette ex. Nevertheless, there are better trainer choices (such as Cursed Powder), so you have to be very selective about which decks to include Strength Charm with.

Strength Charm

Strength Charm is purely situational. In some cases it can win you a match and in others its a useless card in your hand.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Strength Charm from Dragon Frontiers
Here is another of the few tools that can be used by an ex. Strength Charm allows you to add an additional 10 damage to your attack before weakness and resistance, meaning that if the defending is weak he is taking an additional 20 damage. But sadly in a format where most pokemon are well out of OHKO range, an additional 10-20 damage boost for 1 turn only would not help very much, just because you will have to attack a second time anyway. If you have extra space, and your deck is pretty consistent. It would be a nice tech.

Combos: Kingler with strength charm could hit for 90 damage, Quagsire also has the same attack. You can also use it with Slowking UF to do more damage, then in the discard it powers up his attack.

Modified: 2/5 Since most pokemon are not in ohko rage even with strength charm, the space could be used for a tool that isn’t required to be discarded.
Limited: 2/5 very situational, and since space is tight in this format, I would recommend against it.

Current ebay Value: $.25 (Plus or minus $1 dollar)

P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

My name is Strength Charm
I’m a Tool that adds up 10
You can play me in your deck
To surprise you opponent now and then

Unlimited: Plus Power anyone?

Rating : 1/5

Modified: This thing is a really nice surprise factor to your opponent. Especially in decks that don’t do enough damage to the opponent, lets say a Pokemon does 40 and needs 10 more to K.O your opponents Pokemon Strength Charm will help you do that. Also it’s a big plus it can be searched with Cast Away.

Rating : 3.5/5

Limited: This thing is nice here as you could do just enough just on time.

Rating : 2.5/5
