Modified - An obvious combo would be Magcargo with Wigglytuff, since Magcargo can't be Asleep. Lava Plume is a blah attack, doing only 60 damage for 3 energy with a possible burn. The retreat cost is high. In conclusion this is a bad card in Modified. 1/5

Limited - 60 damage and burn for 3 energy isn't great, just decent. The massive retreat cost means once Magcargo goes active, he's stuck there. 2/5
(03/28/08) - Magcargo Lv. 35

Name: Magcargo Lv. 35
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Uncommon

Analysis: Magcargo is pretty good. The Body is great, because it prevents Magcargo from becoming or ever being Asleep or Paralyzed. This works great when teamed with Wigglytuff from Great Encounters. Lava Plume allows automatic burn, which will give you two automatic conditions on the Defending Pokemon every turn! Discarding the top card from your deck is of little concern considering the automatic burn. The retreat cost is costly, but just pack Switches and Warp Points. It has only 90 HP and the weakness to water can hurt, but it is only 20 luckily.

Modified: This card has combo written all over it. Use with Wigglytuff. (4/5)

Limited: Resistant to two special conditions while able to inflict another automatically? And if you also got the Wigglytuff... Whoa. Just don't discard anything good with Lava Plume! (4/5)

Like the other days card this just is too weak to play a role in constructed so let look at other formats.

In limited this is very strong 90 HP and a powerfull attack makes this a powerhouse. But with at cost of FFC and no cheaper attacks it takes a lot of time to get up. Fast and or staling choices like skarmory are usefull partners. Its retreat is high so do not expect to retreat it. Its water weakness is bad as it really is hurt by other limited powerhouse floatsel. At least it wont be OHKO’ed. In No rare format it can OHKO venomoth without thinking about sleep. It will still take the poison thoug…
