Hi, i'm just now starting to try and get into the game. I attended 2 pre-releases of forbidden light and managed to pull some halfway decent cards which i would trade away to start a deck.

 

Now my question is: "Is there a versatile (read: not a deck that has 1 goal and 1 way of completing it) deck that is fun to play, doesn't auto lose to the big meta decks and isn't extremely pricey?". Right now, in pulls, i have about 100€ or 120$ worth of fullarts, rainbow arts, rares and GX's which i could trade away for cards to build a deck.

 

Solgaleo GX with metal magnezones (maybe a solgaleo prism star, and oranguru) seems like it'd be a fun deck, with Solgaleo GX's ability letting you switch around freely and it being able to one-shot pretty much everything and having steel frying pan for a nice buff. But i'm not sure if it's all that viable and whether or not there's a more interactive deck out there?

 

I pulled: Lucario GX (FA), Yveltal GX (RR), Eneporter (SR), D.Mane Necrozma GX, Dialga GX, Palkia GX, Xerneas GX, Volcanion prism star, 4 beast rings (1 is reverse) and a playset of Malamars. Do you guys know of any deck i could make with some of those?

If that doesn't tick your tock, I've been using a psychic build as well since it doesn't really have strong opposition or the weakness to physical that the last build has:

Hopefully you find some joy in these, as they're all surprisingly versatile (even the bee build has huge comeback potential if you can get over the idea of sacrificing a mulligan or two)

Hi, I tried to get a Solgaleo-GX deck going as well.
I just started recently with this game.

My setup is far from good but it gets the job done.
(I got a Thread here if you want have a look)
I think the Rayquaza with Turbo Storm would be a great addition, can charge up Energy as well.


The problem is the time to get the setup going:
-2 Phase 2 Line with SolgaleoGX and Magnezone
-Stadion

When you reach a loaded Solgaleo he is practically Godlike.
But a lot of stuff can hurt your ramp up and it can be a slow deck.
F.ex: Lele pulling a Guzma can really shut your Magnezone down.

If Solgaleo is you favourite Pkm of all time go for it.
If not maybe you should first build a stack of more general cards which can be used in more decks than just one?

I hope this helps a bit,

Bye
