Mightyena and Donphan

I have a deck right now that is Muk/Nidoqueen. After a while I thought about this and I think might work. Mightyena PL with Donphan Prime!!!

pokemon-paradijs.comThe main idea of this deck would be to outspeed your opponent and get multiple KOes early in the game. Donphan Prime can do 60 for 1 energy at the cost of doing 10 to every one of your benched Pokémon. Mightyena, if Poisoned and if the defending Pokémon has at least 1 energy attached to it, can do 80 damage + 10 for poison, unless it is an Pokémon SP. Having this in mind, you must set up quick with the Uxie, Pokédex, Quick Ball, and Broken Time-Space.

If you can set this up the first turn that you can play trainers, then you should be able to keep KOing your opponents’ Pokémon before they set up anything.

If you have any questions about any cards please post or if you have any suggestions.

    I do not see any synergy at all between Donphan and Mightyena.. Besides the fact that you want your list to be different, it doesn't offer anything beneficial like an out to Donphan's many weakness (via Luxray GL or even Raichu GL). Mightyena is too weak to withstand even 1 Earthquake without Nidoqueen, and once you Poison Structure him, it's an EASY ohko. IMHO either go straight Donphan with Luxray tech (See previous articles) or just a standard MightyTank list. All of the above, plus no play testing = sad. Also, no deck should play 3 night maintenance…

    I think you should rethink this list, my friend.
    As cpeterik pointed out, no synergy…
    And as cool as Mightyena's body is, anything kills it because its HP is too low. Gyarados, Garchomp C /w a crobat drop, blaziken fb… this thing just simply doesn't work for the modified format. It's a really cool idea (I've playtested it a few times for fun) but it just doesn't work due to the high-damage, high-speed nature of the meta.

    Finally, if you do want to make this work, let's look at the list. A 1-1-1 line of nidoqueen with 4 RC? Pointless.. you'll have tons of trouble if something gets prized. Try a 2-1-2 1 RC line instead (or better yet, since you play BTS, don't play candy at all). This deck loves call energy; +3 at least. Quick ball and pokedex are bad, get rid. Moonlight stadium is another good option. I would add at least 2, so you have 6 stadiums (if something your opponent is playing starts discarding stadiums, you're screwed).

    While it may be an interesting idea, it's not really worth running both together; they have no real synergy, especially without a way to give Donphan free retreat.

    I'd go with either straight Donphan or straight MightyTank; only because they don't really test well together.

    I agree I would run it straight Mightiana like a 4-4 and increase your Nidoqueen lines like 2-1-2. Interesting idea though!

    Hate to rain on parades here, but I don't see Mightyena really helping out any matchups other than Cursegar, and even vs that you've still got to contend with Mr. Mime.

    The Nidoqueen isn't a bad idea, but even that you fail to fully abuse: -2 fighting and +2 Multi for maximum effect.

    i wud rather use mightyena muk queen so mightyena's health problems will decrease and muk's body will heal two instead of one, they both gain from special conditions so i guess its worth a try but about dialga G will be a proble
