Unlimited - Nay. 1/5

Modified - Great Poke-Body. Toxic Sludge also counts Double Rainbow, Multi, and Scramble (if you're ahead on prizes). Panic Liquid can trap the Defending Pokemon. They can't retreat to rid themselves of confusion, so their only way out is to use a Switching trainer, Gardevoir LV. X's Teleport, or just evolving. Muk loses points because of his low HP and his cheapest and only attack costs 3 energy. 3/5

Limited - The opponent is very limited in ways they can break confusion, so Muk is great here. 4/5

Muk LV.43 is a “fair” card.  Toxic Sludge appears meant to punish Grass players, but as Jermy101 points out in his CotD, it would also nail Double Rainbow Energy and Holon Castform users (and anything else that has a Special Energy providing Grass).  Sort-of Auto-Poison at the end of each players turn is pretty handy, but as a former Liability player, I know this kind of thing is only “so-so”.  It is probably just as useful for shutting of some Poké-Powers as it is for the damage that can accrue, and with only 80 HP and Psychic Weakness, Muk isn’t apt to last long.  It only has one, three Energy attack.  It is a good, big attack for it (50 damage, Confusion, and the Defending Pokémon can’t Retreat next turn), but the effort spent keeping Muk alive and powering up probably would work better elsewhere.  Also, if the opponent doesn’t have anything providing Grass Energy on their Active, the combo really loses potency.


I will say that I am glad they made this card if only because they combined Confusion with a “can’t retreat” effect: Confusion lost a lot of its potency when TPC altered the rules so that a player could have his Confused Pokémon Retreat to the Bench to shed Confusion, instead of having to flip for it like when the game first began.  Eliminating the Retreat option makes it a good offensive/defensive option again.




Unlimited: 1/5


Modified: 2/5


Limited: 4/5



My name is Muk
I got you beat
With my Panic Liquid
You can’t retreat

Unlimited: We have a better Muk from Fossil.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Not much Grass Pokemon in the Format. The Body  is Ok, but it has low HP
and it’s weak to Psychic wich is heavily played now with the rise of Gardevoir Lv. X

Rating : 2/5

Limited: Good in Limited, Stage, decent attack and good Body.

Rating : 3/5
