there is a simple rule to using this card. If your deck
uses a fossil pokemon (Other than Aerodactyl…) then you
use this card. If it doesn’t, you obviously don’t use
this card. Do I need to say much more than that? OK,
another quick thing. You get to search either your deck
or your discard, but remember, once you start searching
in either your deck or discard, you can’t switch back.
So look in your discard pile before using this card.

– 1/5 without fossils, 5/5 with fossils. Simple no?
– 1/5 + 1 for every fossil pokemon you pull.
for the short review, but it really is just that simple.
“Traffic signals in New York are more of a rough
7/3 Fossil Excavator (MD)
So, you can get a Fossil or a Fossil evolution from your
Deck or Discard Pile. 95% of you (rough estimation
there) reading this will not care about that because you
don't have or have no intention of making any sort of
fossil deck (yet) or using any Fossil cards, and thus
you won't really want to use this card. For the 4.9% of
you (rough estimation again) that have made or are
making a Fossil deck, this card is a 4-of staple
straight away (unless you are really tight in space and
can only fit 3 in), and is so amazingly useful, you
won't care at all what this or any of the other reviews
say today as you will keep running it in your Fossil
decks. Now, there are 0.1% of people (again, just a
rough estimation) who are using just a 1-0-1 up to about
a 2-2-2 line of a Fossil in your deck (probably Omastar
(MD) to be honest, generally in your sniping deck), and
you are probably wondering if you should use Fossil
Excavator in your deck to get your Fossil out when you
need it. Using it does depend upon how big of a line you
are using of the Fossil in your deck, if you are using
Claydol (GE) or not (so, basically, you are), and how
vital the Fossil is to your decks strategy. If the
Fossil is vital to your decks strategy, and you are
using Claydol and you have a large line of the Fossil in
your deck, then it is probably worth putting a Fossil
Excavator or 2 in your deck, just to make sure you can
actually get your Fossil out. If it isn't vital to your
decks strategy and thus have a small line, then I'd say
you could probably play 1 Fossil Excavator max, just for
if you ever really need to get the Fossil. However, you
could probably just wait and draw into your Fossil line,
since it isn't vital to your deck, and thus not use
Fossil Excavator at all.
Modified: It's a fantastic card, in Fossil decks. If you
aren't using any Fossils, there is no point to use this
card, and even if you are using even a Fossil or 2, it
may still not be worth using Fossil Exavator. Fossil
Excavator is great, but too specific to actually be used
in every deck, but that's pretty obvious. 1.5/5
Limited: Chances are, you will get a Fossil or two here,
but not a very good line. It's nice for the reassurance
and certainty of knowing you are getting a Fossil, but
may end up finding itself as dead weight instead. 2/5
Okay, so this guy can't get Old Amber out-- but he can
get out the Stage 2 as far as I know (they haven't
reprinted Mysterious Fossil so I'm not sure).
Modified: 3/5 For a fossil deck, it may not need it.
Limited: 4/5 Might work well to get a fossil to stall
for a turn while you set up.
Trainer week round out with a reprint for the Mystic
Dawn set, Fossil excavator. This card is essentially a
Premier Ball mixed with Prof Elm's Training Method
centered on fossil pokemom, a priceless addition to any
fossil deck, which seem to be surfacing with the
readdition of Kabutops
and Omastar. Outside of a fossil deck this card is
useless, at best.
