Mew EX (Legendary Treasures) 

Unlike yesterday’s Stunfisk, you can totally see why Mew was selected to get the prettyful pink shiny treatment. He is perhaps THE original cutemon: far more mysterious and elusive than Pikachu. 

Anyways, Mew EX is pretty much on-theme, as most Mews seem to be (Mew Prime and Mew ex LM, for example). It is only appropriate that the Versatile Pokémon should be the ultimate in . . . well, versatility, and that’s just what we get, thanks to Mew EX’s aptly-named Ability. With him in play, you may copy any attack of any Pokémon in play, provided that you have the required Energy for it. 

It’s always great to have one of these Mews in the format: they are such inviting combo pieces, challenging players to come up with ways to exploit a variety of attacks by abusing Mew’s status as an easy-to-play Basic. The most notable example would be Mew’s use in the powerful Gothitelle/Accelgor deck, where he could be used as a proxy for a Benched Accelgor, as he is faster to get out than a Stage 1. Also, the low HP/two Prize drawback didn’t matter as long as he could return to the deck by copying Deck and Cover. 

If there aren’t too many other opportunities for Mew EX right now, I’m sure there will be in future. It’s such a well designed card with the kind of high risk/high reward trade-off that always keeps you interested. 

Rating 

Modified: 3.75 (rating will vary wildly according to what Mew has to work with. I picked this kind of at random)

Limited: 1.75 (I would question the usefulness of a low HP combo-orientated EX here)
