Hey Everyone! Expanded testing has been a lot of fun for me as it is my favorite format. There are so many viable decks, and a lot of news one surfacing due to Hex’s ban. This means that a lot of ability based decks will be resurfacing now that they no longer have to answer to the threat of ability lock. What could be the best way to beat an ability based meta? Play ability lock.
It just so happens that Zoroark-GX decks can just play Garbodor and use it just like they would use Hex Maniac. One may even say that with Garbotoxin it is even easier to consistently hit the lock since we no longer have to use our supporter on Hex Maniac. While this isn’t 100% true, it still holds merit and is a reason the deck is extremely powerful.
A lot of people thought that the power of Zoroark-GX came from its ability to stream Hex Maniac, but really, its lightning fast set up and consistency came from being able to propagate Exeggcute and essentially have free Ultra Balls and Trades. This theoretically allows you to play with way more cards than you should over the course of a game which provides a lot of value. With that, let’s get right into the deck.
