    I don't see it. Firestarter+Stark Mountain is just better, especially because a Lv X with 4 Retreat Cost is not only ridiculous to set up, but because of the text of Flame Bluster. And I quote...

    It's pointless. You can't use the attack twice in a row. so why wouldn't the easier to set up Typhlosion Stark Mountain combo be better?

    I think Pokemon like Houndoom, Rapidash, Blaziken, and Infernape definitely would be much better.

    Oh, and the Burn thing. I don't see it being a big enough bonus...again,

    Why not just Heatran, Rotom, Claydol? Heatran can do Unlimited damage......

    Your forgetting Heatrans body. It's also a LOT easier to get out then a stage 2.

    How is ato 30 inbetween turns not amazing? :/

    I agree, Blaziken and heatran lx would be better. 80 to any pokemon, EVERY turn. Plus, you are still able to power up a blaziken on the bench while you attack.

    Kingdra will be pretty huge.

    I can rare candy a benched Cyndaquil. Instead, I'd have to retreat or warp point whoever is already out, level him up, and retreat or warp point again. A basic level X that isnt going to attack is a lot more troublesome.

    I could see it being a lot better if you could be burned on the bench. Poison decks would be better too. But most of the excellent cards next format willmjust laugh. Raichu IFDS=Free Retreat. Dusknoir has free retreat with stadium. Lumineon, again, free retreat. I guess it's good for a quick 30 damage, but most of the time, it won't do much else. It does give Magmortar a much needed edge against Empoleon(30+100 for KO), but again, I still don't see the magic. Maybethe issue is more that Magmortar isn't terrible, it's dcent enough--it's just not excellent, like most of IFDS.
