Tuesday: Butterfree

     LOL. I don't like this card much... I mean look at it. It's seriously weak. 70 hp for a Stage 2? Yuck. Whirlwind? Double yuck. Absorb? Horrible cost, triple yuck. Nice bottom stats. But overall, this card is pretty pathetic. Very weak to ER/SER, and in modified, it's bait for some big bad fire pokemon to come rip it to shreads. Don't play Butterfree... not even with N2 Caterpie :P

Standard Rating: 1.5/5

Modified Rating: 2/5

Draft Rating: 2/5

Croconaw88 Tuesday: Butterfree 

70 HP is pretty low for a stage 2. Free retreat is always nice. In

Standard whirlwind isnt that great and megadrain is just asking to get SERed. that combined with a weak basic makes it almost unplayable.

In Modified 4 turns is to slow to stop Gator or Crobat. Weakness to fire isnt good. Big fire will be very popular in the new modified.

In draft a gust attack can help a lot, but its still to slow.

Standard 1.5/5
Modified 2/5
Draft 2.3/5

There's not much to say about Butterfree.  It's a stage 2 with a bad basic and a decent stage 1.  Whirlwind isn't a very good attack, seeing as most people would have a free retreater on their bench.  Mega Drain is just... expensive =/.  4 Grass for 40? NOT cool.  In Unlimited, every possible factor stops it from being good.  1.5/5

Not much better in Modified.  Magcargo OHKOs it without even having to discard a fire.  Even though it's grass, Feraligatr would whomp it too.  2.5/5 here.

In draft, it's good if you can get it out.  It IS a stage 2 though, so this could be tough.  3/5.

Butterfree - This card never really stood out to me. A stage three with 70 hp and fre retreat. That's so scytherish, but scyther is a basic.  It's just too slow in unlimited.  In modified it is much more playable but of course faster things are present and fire is present too.  In draft it's too much to throw into a stage 2.  You would need like the perfect draft to get it and even at a stage 2 it's not a bomb... If your gonna draft a stage 2 it HAS to be a bomb, no question asked.
