Manectric ex

For a lightning and a colorless, Disconnect can be one of the most devastating attacks in the game.  Often, when Disconnect beats your opponent's Rare Candy, you will win yourself the game.  Combined with the right stadium, Disconnect lets you lock Cursed Stone, Battle Frontier, or any other game-winning card in play.

It's Mega Shot attack works best when you can get a non lightning on it, allowing you to take out a Wartortle, and various other Stage1 Pokemon on the second or third turn of the game, then follow up with a Disconnect.

Fighting weakness hurts, but metal resistance helps against all the delta evolutions.

Modified: 4/5

In unlimited, relying on attacks like Disconnect doesn't work.  Eventually you'll flip tails against a Cleffa and get ran over.   2/5

My reviews are ratings are for Modified only.

Manectric ex (Deoxys)

Modified (DX-on): 4/5 - no non-Supporter trainers still hurts a lot - especially with all the new stadiums and Rare Candy still being a big factor. With proper manipulation cards, like Pokemon Reversals or Energy Removal 2's, or POW! Hand Extension, this works really well with Mew ex from Legend Maker.

Magnetric ex~Finally we get to review some cards! I think it is neat that we get to review cards from Ness' winning decklist. I played this deck at a regionals but his deck is WAY more simple then the one I played. The First card is Magnetric I would say Magnetric is the key pokemon to this deck. Without him what would mew do? First off the main thing that made this deck so successful in the first place is Disconnect 40 and NO TRAINERS for 2 energy is insane but then you think about well they can still play supporters. The main supporters played in the modern format today are Holon trainers and they are all ran on a card called Holon Transciever which is probably the best trainer in the game. It also puts in a stadium lock on your opponent and there are plenty of other trainers they might use. Megashot is the snipping attack it is no mudslide but it works it can be really annoying when your opponent is hitting your bench for 80 every other turn. Manetric can hold its own in battle also but I would rather have it sitting pretty on the bench

Modified 4/5 Limited 4/5 Unlimited 1/5
 
Computer Guy From the deck that took the World Championships comes Manectric ex from Deoxys.

Manectric ex is a very good card when combined in the deck called Mewtric. Manectric ex by itself has good stats and good attacks and when its put into this deck you can see why its such a useful card.

Today's Key Card In Ness' Championship Deck ...Manetric Ex From Deoxys
The Foundation Of the Deck Is Manetric Ex. You Can Run the deck without Mew ex, But you Cant run it with Out "Manny". His First attack, Disconnect is what makes the deck so powerful. Without the use of trainers,and stadiums, the biggest decks in the meta-game seem to grind to a slow crawl, while you continue to punish them with Psychic Damage. Mega Shot, a High Damage, low cost attack, does 80 to any pokemon in the game, so you can deliver that final blow to your opponents active, or take out the big hitter your opponent is trying to build on the bench. With one retreat cost, he is a great all around Card. His fighting weakness keeps him in check.

Modified 3/5 (As an ex with low HP at 100. A fighting weakness, is a serious threat, because a basic fighting can pokemon can dish out 50 damage, and cost you 2 prizes.) Plus Queendom was still a Tier 1 deck

Limited 4/5 (Because of his fighting weakness, the lunatone-solrock combo, and Whiscash hitting him hard, he is 1 point from perfect. )

Current ebay Value $18 (plus or minus $2 dollars)
