    Magmortar scoffs in the face of Energy Removal 2. Don't go thinking that will save you the matchup against it. I wouldn't play the Torterra deck simply because it has Torterra in it. Torterra is not playable, but Empoleon is pretty good. So, you make the call :thumb:.

    It would only slightly slow down Magmortar, and thats if you remove a scramble. Empoleon is way better choice.

    Straight Empoleon w/lapras is the best way to play

    I recommend this pokémon line:

    Pokémon n° 18
    4 Lapras GE
    2 Mawile GE
    4 Piplup DP
    3 Prinplup DP
    4 Empoleon DP
    1 Suicune SW

    big deal!! Energy Removal 2 only takes off 1 energy. A Scarmable or DRE can get them back on the K.Os fast. When, you are playing against Magmortar, you need to have Absol becasue it can take out major trainers, and if you discard a Magmortar or a Lv.X on the first turn, they have to waste a trainer early in the game, to get it back. That is the true meaning of beating Absol.
