    Because of setting up aromatisse? I thought Geomancy T1 would set Lugia up perfectly for a T2 Plasma Gale?

    tynamo2014 I BEACH!!!!!!!!

    lugia does not work with basic energies i have tested with all sorts of stuff and DCE and plasma is always faster.

    Played against a guy that used Thundurus and Genesect as the only Team Plasma Pokemon that I got to see in our BO3. I honestly had no chance of winning the series if he had drawn Supporters in game three. It was literally all draw pass for him in 5 turns while I got to play 5 Junipers (Dowsing Machine, I'm not a cheater). In game 1 and 2, however, he really just destroyed me, and I believe I only won game 2 because he used G-Booster on my active instead of a Muscle Banded Land Crush for the KO (On a Darkrai EX).

    Point is, this deck is fantastic. It can be ran as either a machine that can pump out G-Boosters nearly every turn or switch up the strategy and go for one of the many techs you can fit in this deck. I actually rate it at tier 1 in my personal list, whether you are using Plasma or not.

    If you use Geomancy T1, you can T2 Plasma Gale. Because T1 or T2 you should still be able to find a Lugia, and Aromatisse, and Colress Machine. Geomancy IMO is equivalent to a DCE. However Lugia needs wayyy more support than energies. Because if Xerneas stays alive and you run Deoxys, your damage is capped at 170 with a muscle band. Those condition may not be T2, granted. Lugia/Aromatisse needs attack support from other Pokemon IMO. Aromatisse+fairy energy-DCE = keep all your energy when you max potion Lugia or any attacker.

    *edit: I misread. Faster, perhaps, but I still think the above stands.

    I run almost an exact list, just a few changes(I run Palkia EX and 2 DCE, it's helpful). Works great online, but my meta hates it lol. VirGen/Balloons is a nightmare.

    Yeah, It's bad but workable, I have no VirGen in my Meta, if i did, I would drop the Baby Ray for a Entei EX.

    Echoing this. I've fought this deck numerous times on ptcgo and at Georgia states and, once they get 3+ energy on the field, it becomes a nightmare to face. I have been consistently underwhelmed going against straight fairy decks with Xerneus(-EX) but Plasma fairies with Genesect, Thundurus, Landorus, and Yveltal to move energy for giant KOs out of nowhere is really strong. The only real pains I've seen the deck have is preserving bench space since it feels like it's absolutely precious when you need all sorts of stuff on the field at once and going up against a flurry of enhanced hammers.

    Hmm, interesting list, but why Deoxys?
  13. snscompt1

    Bumps up the damage a bit more, and a decent psychic attacker I would think. Two Deoxys plus a Palkia with Muscle Band OHKOs Black Kyurem EX and Raquaza EX.

    MetalArmedAngel My lovely Luka ♥♥

    Heatran+Muscle Band+ 1 Deoxys= Screw you Virgen
    Palkia+Muscle Band+ 2 Deoxys= Screw you BKEX/Ray EX

    I guess that's true, but bench space is so tight in this deck, and you could just play baby ray or Entei EX for counters.
  16. MetalArmedAngel

    MetalArmedAngel My lovely Luka ♥♥

    I don't like fragile attackers in Aromatisse, but I have been thinking about it.
    If I don't like Deoxys (which I don't atm, but more testing) I'm taking both Heatran and Palkia out for Baby Ray and Entei EX. Probably the extra space will go to 1 Shauna and a Plasma Energy
  17. Tax_collecter

    So you cut Deoxys? Also, resoning behind no G-Booster, it discards Plasma energy that would otherwise be, un-usable.
  18. MetalArmedAngel

    MetalArmedAngel My lovely Luka ♥♥

    G booster is still something I'm Iffy on? I love the fact that this deck has an ohko method outside of yveltal, but discarding energy can be quite painful.
    I'll try it out this week.
    And yes I did take out deoxys
  19. Tax_collecter

    Tax_collecter Active Member

    Yeah, I've been loving my G-Booster for late game, when you've accumulated upwards of 3 Plasma energy on Genesect. Just being able to discard them and get 200 is awesome.

    If you can pump out enough energy early on with Thundurus than discarding 2 for 2 Prizes isn't that bad at all. Then you can A) move Energy up to Genesect EX and do it again or B) attack with something else because you can move Energy so pick whatever.
