Mismagius (Legendary Treasures) 

It’s a fact of life with Trading Card Games that some cards must be unplayable filler. There are three reasons for this: 

1. Without ‘bad’ cards, you can’t have ‘good’ ones.

2. Even if all cards were good in isolation, some would be better than others and so bad cards would be created by default.

3. Hundreds of new cards are released each year. Making them all balanced and playable is next to impossible. 

Why do I mention this? Because it’s the only way of explaining the existence of a card like Mismagius and giving it some kind of purpose.  Let’s face it, Mismagius is a low HP Stage 1 with attacks that aren’t usuable or even interesting. Absorb Life does 30 for two Energy and heals an almost irrelevant 10 damage from itself; while Spooky Shot is an underpowered, effect-free, 70-for-three Energy attack that has virtually no meaning in today’s format. Oh and Mismagius is Weak to Darkrai . . . as if you needed another reason never to let this card within a country mile of a competitive deck. 

It’s not even suitable for fun/league play, as there is nothing particularly ‘fun’ about it: there are no real combos for this card, or any effects you can work with. Even in limited, you would have to pull a really poor selection of Pokémon to end up with this in your 40 card deck. The artwork is nice, I guess, and that’s the most you can really say about it. 

We get these cards in Pokémon. We don’t like it much when we do, but we should be used to it by now.

Limited: 1.5 (the set has great pull rates so you should never need to use this)

Mismagius

 

Modified:

Why is this a rare, who knows? It could be a Basic and people wouldn't use it. Not going to be a long review today, it's not even a particularly original illustration.

 

Unlimited 150:

Mismagius hasn't had many cards made, but out of the few to pick from, there's better than this. Mismagius GL LV.X's Poke-Power creates such a powerful combination that it's on a partial ban-list!

Combined with the certain Unown (like Unown G from Great Encounters) that can turn themselves into a Pokemon Tool and a Pokemon with Damage Swap (Like Alakazam Base or Reuniclus B&W) you can heal your Pokemon for an infinite amount of damage every turn. It can be quite difficult to set up but once it does it becomes a 1 hit KO only game which can be impossible against good control decks (such as Gardevoir that can easily house this combo).

So, there wasn't much to say about today's Mismagius, but you learnt something about an old one!
