As a Delta basic, Mantine d is inferior to Chimecho d when
it comes to
getting energy back. However, Mantine d works nicely in
Tyranitar d, allowing you to Crush Draw successfully, rather
than hoping to
simply get lucky.
In unlimited, much stronger combos exist, and Mantine is
Murkrow's Mean Look.
Although a weak attacker, Mantine can help you when you run

Mantine’s Poke-Power seems to be quite useful. It’s
obviously meant to be combined with Tyranitar d and its
Crush Draw ability. It’s very vulnerable to Cursed Stone and
Zap though, so try not to have too many in play if you
suspect your opponent is running either of those cards.
No good combinations here.
I definitely think there’s some potential with this card and
Tyranitar d. I have a good deck idea actually. I think I’ll
write an article about it :-D.
Useful if you need your next card to be energy. The 10
damage isn’t a big deal, as there’s not many ways to attack
the bench in this format.

Modified 3/5 - I like this card combined with Pokemon that can
manipulate topdecking, such as Tyranitar d or Charizard d.
However, this is not a Pokemon to put on your Bench against
decks like Raieggs until you actually need its Poke-Power. The
Bench damage and Cursed Stone will KO your Mantine delta before
you can make good use of it.
Useless here, free prize.
A mediocre power, low hp, terrible attacks. The only
possible combos are with t-tar d and Camerupt ex but who
Getting energy back could be useful but very rarely is.
Energy is the thing you should have enough of o in this
My name is Mantine
Energy is my
I get it back for you
With my Power
there’s Blastoise to get something powered quickly.

Modified: As you all
might know our friend Chuck wrote a article about a deck
that uses this card.
In this deck the card is really nice cause it gives you
energy to attach with Crush Draw. Besides the use of it
in this deck I don’t see the use of it.
Rating : 2/5
Limited: Could give
you extra energy just watch out you don’t KO your self
with it’s Power.
