with the translation we have, yes it should.I never thought i would see a magcargo gx to be honest but it looks awesome has nice synergy with baby magcargo and the attack could be fun you don't want to use the gx attack so use turtonator gx, gx attack instead.
Also does the ability stack?
We DO have energy recycler from Guardians Rising
- Magcargo-GX - Good with Magcargo that reserves a card to the top so you'll always hitting the energy you want. The main atk though bothers me. How do we get those discarded energies back and spam the numbers? We don't have Baby Volcanion #HeyNick next roration. 3-4 Geodudes
i play online, so battle compressor is more useful in expanded, i can see this being used for aqua patch and maybe rayquaza.I've been wanting a Battle Compressor but for energy for a while now, since there are quite some decks that want energy in the discard, but have no good way of getting them there.
So Shuckle is definitely fulfilling that, however at the cost of a bench space. And Shuckle will be dead weight after that, so you better be able to afford locking down that bench slot with Shuckle.
