Scizor Lv.42 MD

 

Welcome, today’s COTD today is Scizor, a card that didn’t see much play this year and will see even less play next year. The HP is decent and the resistance is nice, while the weakness isn’t so good. Special Blow is a move that promises so much but fails to deliver when you need it. Doing 80 damage for 1 (M) is amazing, but, with scramble and DRE going out next season, there really is no use for it… The second attack has a high damage potential, but is again stopped dead, this time by a coin flip. Hey! You can also get a T2 donk if your opponent plays Call energy, how about that?

 

Pros –

80 for 1 (M)

Nice HP

Nice resistance

T2 donkability

 

Cons –

Bad weakness

Too dependant

COIN FLIPS ARE EVIL!!!

 

Modified – Could work… For the remainder of the season… Or if they reprint DRE or Scramble 4/5…

 

Limited - Won’t find many special energy here, but 30 for (M) is still good.

 

Guess what!?! This card rocks in unmodified! With so much Double Colorless Energy running around this thing can do 80 damage a lot (Watch out for Raindance!)

Alright, this is the stage 1 we're talking about. It can potentially do 80 damage for 1 energy? It's 1st attack can and will do 80 where everyone likes Special Energy. It's second attack averages to do 70 damage for 3 energy. Better than that Toxicroak at least. HP is average and fire weakness hurts, but you can still run those Special Energies to keep Scizor from getting OHKOed. Psychic resistance helps this guy run a little better as well.

Modified 3.5/5 With so many people playing Call Energy, wouldn't it be nice to snag the 1st prize?

Unlimited: 3/5 Unlimited plays a lot of special energy and could work well with Scizor ex-- if you don't want to let your opponent to grab an easy 2 prizes, you could grab the other Scizor using Wally's Training.

Limited: 5/5 There are 5 special energies in this set and people are bound to run some of them. With everyone running call so they can get basics and thin the deck out, Scizor should do very well.

Scizor

Happy Thursday all, today the magnifying glass is over Scizor... which is just where the problems begin... 90 hp is respectable, one retreat cost isn't bad, -20 resistance to psychic could help, but holy fire weakness! +30 to fire is really not fun considering only having 90 hp and the popularity of Infernape/Magmortar/Blazinken/Typhlosion... the attacks aren't bad... with the new rotation there really won't be much use for sniping special energy users and coin flips are a no-no from the second attack...

Modified- 2.4/5

Limited shows some potential for this guy, with 3 special energy in this set and only needing one energy for a solid 30 you're likely to have him last a bit longer than most others in this format.

Limited- 3.8/5
