    This is a deck I've been testing. It focuses on Landorus EX and Mewtwo EX for easy damage output and the Drifblims to help it beat Plasma.

    [spoiler=My List]
    Pokemon - 13
    3 Landorus EX
    3 Mewtwo EX
    3 Drifloon PLB
    2 Drifblim DRX
    1 Drifblim PLB
    1 Sawk PLB

    I/S/S - 45
    4 Juniper
    4 N
    1 Colress
    2 Bianca
    2 Random Receiver
    13
    3 Ultra Ball
    4 Switch
    4 Catcher
    1 Computer Search
    2 Silver Bangle

    2 Tool Scrapper
    2 Max Potion
    2 Enhanced Hammer
    Energy - 11

    I really like it against the meta, but Blastoise just destroys it and I have no idea how to deal with that matchup.

    are bangles AND mirrors need for plasma? only drifblim gets them.
    and sawk isnt needed for absol. your benches are small and landorus hits weakness.

    minus 2 bangle and a sawk
    plus a hammer and a 1+1 drifblim line(the 50x one, or the good one as i like to think of it)

    Keldeo Blastoise w/ techs (Mewtwo or BK variant)

    Ah. It's really a lost cause with this deck, lol. There's really nothing you can tech to beat it.

    4 Drifloon. 3 is too little. Have you ever seen anybody run 3-4 lines? I haven't. Speaking of, you need the 2-2 split of Drifblims. You may want to try Victini EX for Virizion.

    For the blastoise matchup, why not use Sigilyph DRX or Boufalant DRX? Both have use and can effectively counter with Silver Mirror.

    The age old solution to Blastoise:
    Drop-
    -1 Mewtwo EX
    -1 Sawk
    -2 Silver Mirror
    -2 Switch
    -1 Pokemon Catcher

    and add-
    +2 Trubbish
    +2 Garbodor (DRX)
    +3 Float Stone

    3 stones is not enough. Consider adding a 4th somewhere.

    Takuya Yoneda's top 8 Darkrai Garbodor list only ran 3 Float Stone (yes I know it has Sableye) and a 2-2 Garbodor line is really just there for Blastoise in most match ups you wont go for it this is a minimalist line to deal with Blastoise and not a dedicated Garbodor deck.

    I really like the idea for the Garbodor line, but I cut all tools in my most recent list and IDK if 3 Tools and Dowsing would be enough. It shouldn't hurt consistency, either.

    With that thin of a line you cannot COUNT on having it for the Blastioise matchup. You are then riding on the fact you are lucky enough to pull it off.

    hardly, t3 garbodor isnt hard to pull off so long as you can draw through your deck

    With a 2-2 and a 3 its still tough, If you are looking for it on T3 I guess that is true, but I generally want it by T2 vs Blastoise because if they hit a T2 Blastoise it could be too late already.
  18. Ziggmiceter

    This is why I'm really reluctant to drop even 1 Mewtwo. VS Blastoise just starting Landorus could be a death sentence. It's not that hard to get out, though. But if you get the T3 Garb vs. T2 Blastoise, Mewtwo'ing them is your best approach, and it works well. If you start Mewtwo+DCE, by T3 if they're attaching to Keldeo each turn you would KO them.

    SamSoldier Don't know what to put here D:

    You guys want a easy to fit and decent counter to Blastoise eh?
    What about Frozen City?

    too risky, they could just beach it away one turn and get energy on the board. and your mewtwo loses hp when you attach to it as well.
