    The list looks great to me, Klinklang would be a problem if it gets set up, but unless you wanted to tech in a V-create Victini, i would say just spamming poison, and catchers would low them down, they only have so many switches. They have no energy acceleration so you should be faster, just keep KOing klinks.

    I havent tested it but i wonder if including 3 or so crushing hammers would help with that match up, considering they can only attach 1 energy at a time.

    My list is the same except for
    -1 RR, +1 Bianca
    -2 Energy, +2 Energy Search (can be junk hunted for more energy, and thins the deck... might be good to play 1 of these at least)

    mattynate That's not rasslin'!!

    Hmm no skyla?????

    @matthynate yeah, no Skyla. I need speed, Skyla doesnt really do the job well.

    TechnoLegend Can't do that! Too hard to tech stuff into a deck like this. PoisonSpamming is a very effective strategy though, I've tried it once with Sableye circulating the Hypnotoxic Lasers and Catchers.

    SoldiersSpirit I will defend my Kingdom.

    Are you not worried about garbador? Better hope there isn't a couple of decent garbage players or your whole deck shuts down, unless you count on spamming/jh'ing lasers...especially if they play two stadiums themselves just to counter virbank lol.

    This isn't Speed Darkrai, this is Darkrai/Lasers. Speed Darkrai is Darkrai with EtherDex.

    Exactamundo. Toss hypnobank 1 ultra ball and one catcher for etherdex engine

    Actually, Darkrai/Lasers is probably a better deck than Speed Darkrai. If your goal is to T1 Night Spear, though, go for Speed Darkrai.

    just sayn if he wanted speed, build speed, not lazers

    EtherDex is inconsistent. I can get T1 with this given a juniper and some resources
  16. PellOfTheTundra

    PellOfTheTundra Do you even LT-87

    Etherdex is overhyped and pretty bad, TBQH. It's inconsistent, can be extremely useless in some circumstances, and is slow acceleration in general. I don't care what you're running with it, it's just overhyped.

    Skyla. Nuff said.
    I play speed darkrai with lasers, It's just better.
  18. pkmn

    pkmn that's when I won nats

    Why should I be running Skyla when I emphasize speed. I really need the draw for my resources.

    What do you need to pull of a turn one Night Spear with Etherdex and what do you need with this not-lazerbank-deck-that-mains-lazers?
    Etherdex
    2 dark energy in hand
    1 Ultra ball in Hand
    1 pokemon on your side of the field
    1 Ether
    1 Dex
    1 Dark Patch

    THis not-lazerbank-that-manes-lazers
    3 Dark energy in hand
    2 pokemon on your side of the field to begin wth
    1 Proffesor juniper
    2 Dark Patch

    I main lasers. I call this speed darkrai since no one would opt to play etherdex anyway unless for fun. Well for me to hit he t1 I need: 3 darks 2 patches 1 energy switch 1 ultra ball and 1 Pokemon. But then any of these can be replaced by juniper. Just because I said I could pull off the turn 1 night spear doesn't mean i can do so consistently..
