    Here's a deck I built at League. Probably thinking of replacing Registeel with Landorus. Registeel was only in there to go against Landorus EX and try to shoot 3 things for 90 dmg to work with. But Landorus with 1 EN can get 60. I'll keep playing around with it.

    Probly a good idea since Landorus requires less energy than Registeel and spreads almost as well. It doesn't matter where the damage goes, because it'll be moved somewhere in the end most likely.
    Also, why are there 4 rare candy? Do you feel you need that many?

    I like the ditto idea. It actually helps a lot more than I originally though.

    The lines look thicker in the middle than they need to be and you don't have a good starter. Might connsider adding one more candy as well.

    I only added 4 Candies just to get the high chance of T2 Dusknoir. Dusknoir should be out by at least T2 so you can move dmg from Landorus/Regi on T3.

    What?

    LanturnPrime HAS RETURNED!!!!!!!!

    very unlikely that will happen, even with a huge amount of consistency.
    and this sentence: move dmg from Landorus/Regi makes no sense unless you are playing against Landourus EX/Registeel EX

    Wait, let me rephrase that: move dmg CAUSED by Landorus/Regi. And if it's Landorus, then by T2, it's possible to move 60 dmg.

    No Ditto? It seems like it would be a good fit in that deck.

    What do you think I should drop for two Dittos? They would make nice bench sitters for powering up Attack Command but I don't know what to drop for them.

    Not so sure about needing Super Rod. I can see it coming in handy when you're tied closely and lose your fourth Empoleon, but...

    I guess I would consider cutting out a Super Rod, a Switch, and an N. Or something like it, the idea being to thin out a few lines but to not actually give up anything.

    I would remove 1 Catcher as Dusknoir can move dmg around. Catchers should be used to stall.
  15. Does anyone have any advice to give on my deck? it is the bottom of page 1.

    Empoleon1107 maybe you can remove Max Potion, Catcher or a Tool Scrapper?
    Edit, ninja'd by Binks.
    BinksTheOshawott Dark Claw seems like a great fit into the deck.

    I agree, as it gives you more damage to work with. I found it quite useful in recent testing. But I feel you do need 4 catcher, because it gives you a better likelihood of getting one and stalling more effectively.

    I would try to add 1 Dusclops just in case. You never know if your candies become prized.

    My list is so tight you wouldn't believe. I can hardly bring myself to drop anything. Dusclops would forcew me to drop something I need. If I ran more Dusknoir it would be different.

    If the deck is built around a fast Dusknoir, there's no reason to include Dusclops. If you can't get that fast Dusknoir or any other "fast goal" you've probably already lost anyways. I'd only include it if the deck was more moderate.
