Yesterday, I wrote a essay about the deck list I submitted on here.
For some reason, it didn’t let me post it.
I was only able to post the deck list.
Today, I wanted to touch on a few things so that everyone including the OP can understand my card choices.
I feel the deck list I made is respectable.
I will start at the beginning.
The Bright Tide Theme deck is a deck which features a star Pokémon named “Primera”
I believe everyone would agree!
On the face/cover of the Theme Deck, Primera is the Pokémon on display.
I always tell people when you start building a deck to follow some guide line rules.
Rule #1 - Who is the Star/Boss monster going to in your deck?
In this situation, it will be Primera.
Rule #2 - Can you add in any EX/GX into your deck that will support your Boss Monster?
In this situation, We can add a GX!
The GX we can add to improve our Boss Monster is Primera GX!
Rule #3 - What is unquie/ special about this Pokémon?
What sets this Pokémon apart from others?
In order to find this out, We have to look at each of Primera & Primera GX attack’s.
Write down what you notice!
First Observe Regular Primera attack’s
A- It can do some confusion!
B- It can do some healing
Second Observe GX Primera attack’s
C- It can boost it Attack based on Energy attached to it
D- It can discard energy from opponents Pokémon
E- It has GX attack that heals all Pokémon
Rule #4- Let your deck strategy reveal itself!
We haven’t done anything except look at our Star Pokémon’s attack’s!
And guess what?
Deck Strategies have presented themselves to us!
Between our 2 Pokémon we have 5 attack’s.
The deck strategy we implement is going to be designed to help us improve on 1 of those attack’s.
Now let’s list the strategies that we can do!
A- Confusion Deck Strategy - We build the confusion to leave our opponents with status effects
B- Healing Deck Strategy - We build on the Pokémon natural healing
C- Energy Powering Up Deck Strategy - We help our Pokémon gain energies fast so we do heavy hits
D- Energy Discard Deck Strategy- Our Pokemon can discard energy from the opponents we build upon that
We have bunch of options here.
The option I chose was Option B!
A Healing Deck Strategy.
Why? Because I feel that would be so annoying!
Primera is gifted with the ability to heal
We are building on that ability.
Primera GX has 250 HP
250 HP is really high.
The chance of killing that much HP in single hit is unlikely.
To me, It would be so annoying to see a Pokémon with 250 HP Healing itself.
The deck list I made yesterday was based on this strategy & idea.
You can see all the healing this deck will do!
- Primera Natural Healing
- Super Potion
- Rough Seas
- Healing Scarf
I only added 1 Lana because it is support card.
We only get to play 1 per turn so I wanted to get more items that healed!
I didn’t want to use Potion because it heals only 30.
I didn’t want to use a Max Potion because it discards all energy. Primera needs a lot of energy to do attack’s.
I felt a very good in between card would be Super Potion.
It heals 30 more than Potion and discard only 1 energy less than Max Potion
I chose Oranguru as your draw supporter monster because it is budget.
Tapu Lele is very expensive.
I chose Alolah Vulpix because it is a very good starting Pokémon.
You don’t want to start with Popplio because it Attack not that good.
Alolah Vulpix is better because it can search out your Pokémon.
In addition, if you face a person who is using massive amounts of EX & GX, you can evolve into Ninetails to punish them.
You punish them for not adding in regular Pokémon into there deck!
Hopefully, you can see why I made some of my choices.
It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
