This is my planned Umbreon GX Expanded Format deck

 

##Pokémon - 18

 

* 4 Eevee SUM 101

* 2 Yveltal SLG 54

* 2 Darkrai-EX PR-BLW BW46

* 2 Hoopa SLG 55

* 3 Umbreon-GX SUM 80

* 1 Flareon AOR 13

* 1 Jolteon AOR 26

* 1 Jirachi Prism Star CEL 60

* ?

* 1 Vaporeon AOR 22

 

##Trainer Cards - 28

 

* 3 N NVI 92

* 2 Colress PLS 118

* 1 Professor's Letter BKT 146

* 3 Choice Band GRI 121

* 4 Cynthia UPR 119

* 3 Guzma BUS 115

* 4 Pokémon Communication TK-Excadrill 24

* 1 Super Rod BKT 149

* 1 Sacred Ash FLF 96

* 1 VS Seeker PHF 109

* 2 Field Blower GRI 125

* 3 Nest Ball SUM 123

 

##Energy - 14

 

* 8 Darkness Energy Energy 7

* 4 Double Colorless Energy NXD 92

* 2 Psychic Energy Energy 5

 

Total Cards - 60

 

Now I could use an Espeon GX to fill up that empty space (it was recommended by another user) however I find there to be some downsides, such as psychic energy taking up space in the deck and the fact that after a GX card is destroyed the opponent gets 2 prize cards. Also it's much more expensive than a Yveltal or a dark energy card

You don’t have to use Espeon GX or Psychic Energy.

You could use only Dark Pokémon + Dark Energy.
I think you have tons of options.

You could try a 3rd Yveltal.
You could try a 3rd Hoopa.
You could even get fancy with Yveltal GX or Darkrai GX.

Your deck is very flexible.

It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

I second that third Yvel. But that could just be me. Been getting prized heavily this weekend and it's made me rethink my life choices.

I would say remove the espeon gx and the psychic energies add 1 more yveltal and 1 darkrai ex with dark cloak ability or you can add the darkrai and 1 more energy.
