    Tried the Colress method. Not as good as the dual bikes.

    Here's my first list for this deck. I'm really debating the use of Rare Candy over Evosoda, or at least I'm debating the split that I have. I'd appreciate any comments on this deck at the moment.

    POKEMON - 14
    4 Dratini PLF
    1 Dragonair PLF
    3 Dragonite PLF
    2 Trubbish LTR
    2 Garbodor PLF
    2 Victini-EX

    SUPPORTERS - 15
    4 Professor Juniper
    4 Shauna
    4 Skyla
    3 N

    ITEMS - 21
    4 Rare Candy
    3 Level Ball
    3 Heavy Ball
    2 Pokemon Catcher
    2 Float Stone
    2 Silver Mirror
    2 Silver Bangle
    1 Super Rod
    1 Evosoda
    1 ACE Spec Victory Piece

    ENERGY - 10
    4 DCE
    4 Fire
    1 Grass
    1 Lightning


    My one major concern is the energy count. Any further input is appreciated.

    I'd run some Blend GRPD and a Virizion EX

    There are two ways to run it, though. Virizion EX or Victini EX. Dylan Bryan ran the Victini version at Winter Regs, and I think Ryan Sablehaus ran Virizion. They both work.

    Neither work very well anymore because of Yveltal EX. But the deck is still an auto-win vs. Plasma, pretty much.

    Just thinking about this deck, and I know it has been relatively unpopular since Yveltal EX, so I don't know how well this would work. But, what about running Dragonite with Aromatisse, and Baby Xerneas to power it up? I think it could be interesting.

    Deafen is so good because you can prevent your opponent from playing scrapper and breaking Garbodor's ability lock. Dragonite/Aromatisse would certainly be fun, but it's just not as affective as disruption as Dragonite/Garbodor is.
  12. Wrags23

    Wrags23 Feeling... rogue.

    It wouldn't be added into the Dragonite/Garbodor... it would be just Dragonite, a 2-2 Aromatisse line, 2-3 Xerneas, and a few tech attackers (Mewtwo EX, Xerneas EX, etc.).

    Right, but now that I'm thinking about it, Garbodor is making a comeback very quickly since FLF got released. Why use it when your opponent might be also? You could also prevent them from even attaching to Garb by using deafen. I actually like the Garbless deck idea, but only because I seem to be drawing a blank on what abilities really need to be blocked.
    Red Signal? Annoying but they usually run 1 Lysander.
    Rush In? Don't see Keldeo much anymore besides Stoise.
    Deluge? Hopefully you get off a T2 Deafen so they can't rare candy.(same goes for
    Dark Cloak? Usually run with Garb nowadays. So. Yeah.
    Intimidating Mane? You're a stage 2.
    Fairy Transfer? Run couple enhanced hammers and kill Aroma and you're good.
    I feel like I'm missing some important ones, but it's late.

    Overflow, Power Connect, Verdant Wind, and Infernal Fandango are a few that you missed.

    Deluge and flandango are the same thing *face palm*

    If anything it's a much fair assessment to say that alot of your matchups are garbo orientated, but the other half of the format is made up of annoying ability based decks, then it's even more so of a fair assessment to say that you ignore the matchups you can do nothing about and play right through them and keep playing through the annoying decks as well.

    I know they are the same thing. You just said in your post "(same goes for" and left it at that, so I fixed it for him by saying "(same goes for RayBoar)."

    What about Mew's Versatile? Sinister Hand? Sand Stream?

    This deck has a lot going against it right now. The only reason the mods still have it at tier 2 I would imagine is because of the more heavy focus on the BBS right now.
