Today’s Card Of The Day is…Stantler from Unseen Forces

Wow! I wonder where this came from…lol Anyway a very overlooked card, because of his lack of a poke power, poke body, or heavy damage potential. But if you look closer you will notice what makes Stantler a “SUPER” card. His first attack allows you to confuse your opponent (My Favorite Status Condition) if they are evolved. Then there is Push Away, “Push away is the only attack in the entire game that allows you to look and chose to discard ANY TRAINER without restrictions! Other attacks make you choose at random, or shuffle back into deck. But the ability to discard any trainer (which includes, fossils, transceivers, stadiums, rare candies, tools and supporters, for those who didn’t know) can really cripple your opponent. I heard there was a pretty good deck using Stantler…

 

Combos: Very Splashable, but combos very well with Mew ex (LM) gives you a higher hp. 

 

Modified:  3/5 His low hp, and a horrible fighting weakness keeps him average.

Limited: 3/5 again, in a set where there are great evo lines he is just average

 

 

Current ebay Value: $1.50  (Plus or minus $1 dollar)

P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

STANTLER
Modified:
In modified, Push Away can be a sick attack, typically used to take away a draw card, or a stadium from your opponent. Doing so can put your opponent in a very difficult situation, and often this is unpreventable to avoid.

Stantler works best in decks with Mew ex, as a lone Stantler isn't going to do much, and Push Away is generally a situational attack. Playing it with Mew ex allows you to focus on other attacks, but keep Push Away as an option.

Modified: 3.5/5

Unlimited:
Lass & Rocket's Sneak Attack are much easier ways to remove your opponent's trainers. Although neither discard them, the speed of unlimited will often make the game feel like you did, as they may never see that card again.
Unlimited: 1.5/5

Limited:
A basic with decent HP, but its attacks are nothing special. Screechy Voice

is weak because you'll be against basics often, and Push Away is weak because your opponent will have very few trainers - those they do they'll play immediately.
Limited: 3/5

Stantler

Stantler was a staple in "Mynx" last format. Mew copied its Push Away attack to set your opponent up to lose later on by nailing all of their stadiums/switch cards to get out of the frontier/pow lock. It's not as effective anymore though, as most of the key cards in Mynx rotated out, such as Admin, POW, and Swoop Teleporter.

Unlimited: 2/5

For a Double Colorless, you can do 20 and almost always knock a card out of your opponents hand, as most Unlimited decks play 30+ trainers. This is really bad against Cleffa though, as it becomes a flip, and doesn't even knock Cleffa out.

Modified: 2/5

Still decent with Mew and the Holon Engine, but not nearly as good as it was in Mynx.

Limited: 2/5

Screechy Voice is ok, but Push Away probably wont be taking out any good trainers.

Stantler

Modified 3/5 - I think it has a lot of potential to be abused. Against almost any deck, ripping out trainers like Rare Candy, Holon Transceiver, or critical stadium cards like Cursed Stone will hurt your opponent a lot. However, once you're done messing with your opponent's hand, you'll need a cleaner Pokemon that can win the game quickly. The last thing you want to do is let your opponent come back beating you after you spend all that effort controlling and disrupting the game.
 
Kempley05 Stantler UF

Santler is actually fairly underrated. His attack allows you to damage, and crucially discards cards like windstorm, Cessation crystal, stadiums and so on. Can be a could card to prevent or create a stadium or tool lock. He also allows you to take a peek at your opponent?s hand which can be a decent advantage.

However, he lacks the clout to be put up front and survive ? he?s more likely to be seen as a tech in Mew ex based decks, however I?d sooner attack with something a bit more substantial ? that will help you more in the long run.

Unlimited 1/5

Modified 2.5/5

Limited 3/5 ? Colourless and can be thrown in any deck ? won?t be you main attacker though.

Unlimited: Even though there are many Trainers in Unlimited this thing get K.O too easily.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: 70 HP and weak to Fighting means this thing isn't gonna make it.

Rating : 1/5

Limited: 70 HP, Basic and Colorless Attacks this could be a nice addition to a Deck.

Rating : 1/5
