    There are many more options in the Modified Format but these are the decks I thought of originally, plus I cant afford Luxchomp. Any refinements you would make to any of the decks above, feel free to tell me and believe me YOUR VOTE COUNTS
    Appreciated, Pyrocitor~

    Out of all of these, Dialgachomp is probalby best.
    Charizard and Kingdra/Machamp may get you a winning record but prob not top cut.
    Vilegar and Sablelock will at least get you into Top Cut
    Dialgachomp should easily get you in Top Cut and a 1st or 2nd place if played right.
    Right now I'm leaning to KingGar being a great deck.

    Thanks for the input dude, thats one vote for DialgaChomp then.
    I cant decide between all of them, although VilePlume is no fun to play, and I have little experience with it so I guess I can discount it.
    More Votes wanted people

    Idk what you should run, pretty much test them all out on redshark and see which one you like the most. But I will give you a lil advice, the most Collectors you should probably run in a deck is 2. 3 is a lil too much and 4 is just ridiculous.

    More votes are appreciated guys, testing is underway but I still cant decide what to run. Every post from now must contain a vote

    I vote Dialgachomp but for the love of god run a tech against blaziken.
    I'm sorry i can't suggest a good tech i'll look in to it and get back to you.

    1-1 Glalie (AR) works as a Blaziken FB Lv.X tech but I dont have space for it. Is there an alternative counter to Luxray X than Promocroak, because I cant get one. Mankey and Relicanth are counters, but they need fighting energy.
    What can I take out for a Luxury Ball because its a staple? I know there is a lot of trainer lock around, but the same applies for all my other trainers.
    I need to remove three cards because I am over the 60 card limit, so Im starting with 1 Conductive Quarry, and I cant get a promocroak so I will remove that too.
