Musharna (Plasma Blast) 

Hello and welcome to a new week of reviews on Pojo’s CotD. We kick off with a look at Musharna. 

What we have here is a Stage 1 Pokémon with a middle-of-the-road 100 HP. I suppose the ‘attraction’ (such as it is) is Precognitive Dream, and attack which costs one Psychic Energy and lets you draw three cards before Musharna falls Asleep. Using an attack to draw cards is only really desirable in the very early game, which Musharna, being a Stage 1, struggles with. Double Draw Virizion (NVI, PLB) is therefore a much better card in this respect, but even that rarely sees play because most decks will either have an attack they want to use, or would rather go for the Tropical Beach Stadium. The Sleep drawback seems totally unnecessary here too. As far as the other attack goes, Psybeam offers just 60 damage for three Energy, plus a weak Status Condition (Confusion) which the opponent can simply retreat out of (or prevent with Virizion EX). 

Even though our current card pool is completely lacking in playable draw Pokémon, we still have better options than this (Electrode PLF, Virizion, Tropius PLB, even Musharna NEX), so don’t expect to see this card at any tournaments. 

Rating 

Modified: 1.5 (even the cards that are better than Musharna see very little play)

Limited: 4 (I’d probably use any form of draw here to be honest)
