Ratings - Golden Muffin
Golden Muffin is another Central Arena prize muffin, and it is a victim of fractional icons as well. Although it shows 15 icons, it is really only doing 4.5 icons of each icon type for a total of 13.5 icons. This is not terrible, it just means that Golden Muffin is not a first-class muffin. Brain Muffin does the exact same icons as Golden Muffin, but does 5 full icons of each type, dealing a true 15 total icons. For important battles, consult my review on Brain Muffin.

Golden Muffin is that ugly muffin that can be used in a less meaningful battle when a user does not want to use one of their 15-icon muffins. (I'm assuming that many battlers now have muffin stashes thanks to the new Battledome. :P)

For battlers that have not upgraded their Multiple Use weapons to the level of Altador Cup Throwing Star or above, Golden Muffin is useful for some extra damage. However, Brain Muffin or another 15-icon muffin should be used in place of Golden Muffin in more important battles.

Price/Power (2/5)
Misleading in that it looks to have 15 icons but doesn't

Countermeasures (1/5)
Some of this is taken off by a Scarab Ring combo, others by common shields such as the Leaf Shield but this is by no means horrible. Main problem seems to be the commonly used and blocked physical being present.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Look at the other battle muffins or bombs to see which one would be best for your opponent, or for a little more scratch perhaps consider if a Swift Darkfire Negg Bomb would be right for you instead.

Other Points (None)

Final Thoughts
Muffins become increasingly less relevant as the tide of icon inflation marches onwards.
