Ladies & Gentlemen, I am back!
I am continuing my Series of Converting Theme Decks into Budget Standard PVP Decks!
I have showcased:
- Destruction Fang
- Imperial Command

The deck I have for you today is the beloved Clanging Thunder!
I have gone through the Theme deck.
I have taken out the cards which are not very good.

Theme decks love to have extra Pokémon & extra Energy.
Standard decks don’t like to use excessive Pokémon & Energy.
I have slim down the deck with Budget cards so anyone can play the deck!
In order to keep the deck Budget, we only want cards that are 1-2 packs affordable.

The win rate of this deck is actually pretty decent.
It has won 6 games out of 10.
The win rate is over half.
I think it is fairly impressive especially for a budget build.

Without further delay, I would like to post the deck list:

———————————————————————————

Let’s talk about the deck strategy:
Every deck needs an opener.
A Pokémon that you want to start the battle with!
The opener I have for you today is a little unorthodox.
- Pikachu
- Jangmo-o

Most decks like to set up a full bench.
Some of my previous deck builds used Alolah Vulpix to set up your bench.

The problem is this deck is different.
You don’t want to set up fast with this deck.
The reason why is because the Boss Pokémon in the deck gets stronger if you have less Pokémon than your opponent.

For these reason’s, We don’t want a bunch of Pokémon on our side of the field.
We want a lower Pokémon size + more cards.
Pikachu is the best starter Pokémon.

It can help us draw an extra card with it’s Attack.
In addition, We have 2 different Raichu’s in the deck.

We can make the Alolah Raichu - It is used mainly to Attack with.
Or
We can make the Evoshock Raichu - It is used mainly to Paralyze with.
This is our main starting plan.

KEY THING TO REMEMBER:
Look at how many Pokémon your opponent has in play.
You want to try to stay 1-2 Pokémon less than them.

——————————————————————

The Pokémon Draw Supporters:
- Oranguru

Oranguru can save you.
It lets you draw if your hand size is below 3.
This can help you get more cards.

—————————————————————-

The Boss Pokémon in the Deck:
- Baby Kommo-O
- GX Kommo-O

We plan on using the Baby Kommo-O first Attack!
The first Attack is called War Cry.
It does 30 damage + 90 more if we have fewer Pokémon than our opponent.
The attack is 1 Double Colorless Energy.
120 Damage for 1 Attachment is very good!
We also have the stadium Devour to increase the Damage by 10!
We want the 1 Charge heavy hitting punch!

The only time we want to make the GX Kommo-O is if we want to do the GX Attack
Or
If your opponent has less Pokémon in play than you.
Your Baby Kommo-O will usually pick of 1-2 Pokémon.
Than your opponent will have less Pokémon than you in play.
The result is your War Cry Attack no longer does 120 Damage.
It will only do 30.

This is when you want to switch over to the GX Kommo-O.
The GX Kommo-O can help you when your opponent loses Pokémon.

The only downside with the GX Kommo-O is that it takes 3 energies to charge up.
However, you are able to charge.

———————————————————————

This is pretty much the decks strategy.
I think this deck strategy is more easy/simple.

I actually didn’t have to write a lot this time around.
I think the main reason is because a lot of the cards are very clear cut.

There is only 1 card that is interesting.
I added a Supporter called Vokner.
Vokner let’s you grab 1 item card + 1 Light energy.
It is a unique Lighting support card.
It is very good.

The deck is using Light Pokémon + Lighting Energy.
Vokner can be very helpful.
And that is all.


As always, Thank you for stopping by to read my thread!
