I've also found Resilient Life to be very suboptimal - lots of basics without their evolution lines especially on the Psychic side, and not nearly enough draw power. The saving grace is that Xerneas can thin the deck pretty well to make the low draw power slightly less of a handicap, and Mr. Mime can hit surprisingly hard for a cleric. You'll still be forfeiting a fair bit from dead opening draws in Trainer Challenges, though.
This. If you don't open with Xerneas, reset. Night Hunter is so bad that I still never got the pack from it.

The only deck (that I have) that I've had problems with is Enchanted Echo. The Eeveelutions are good, but most of the other pokemon are bad. And the trainers are absolutely terrible. I don't think maintenance should be in any deck, even ones that use archie's and Maxie's.

Nightfall, no question. Back in the days of the HGSS-DRX Trainer Challenge it was better, but with the current power ramp? No.
The only time I can win a game in TC is when I get a Metagross line start and power through everything (which happens about every 12 games)

I bought Plasma Shadow Theme Deck when it used to be at shop in PTCGO. If I don't start with Giratina, I used to lose everytime I played this deck in versus, eventhough it needs 3 energies to attack. lol
