I have 2 different Gengar decks for upcoming Format.
A few weeks ago, I shared my Gengar + (Bats) deck list.
It got a healthy amount of views + deck improvement tips.
I feel the thread was a success!
I have decided to come back with my Alternative Gengar Deck build!
I call the deck the Shrine of Gengar!
I am going to share the deck list + my thoughts on deck.

****** Deck List Generated by the Pokémon TCG Online www.pokemon.com/TCGO ******
My deck idea is to make my opponents GX/EX decks suffer!
I feel these GX/EX decks are a Glutton for Punishment.
I think the time has come for some pay back!
I feel it is my duty to get revenge for all the other Non-GX/EX Pokémon in the game.
The way I plan to get revenge is by using the New Stadium called Shrine of Punishment!
**Every turn, both yours & your opponent, you are allowed to put 10 Damage on all GX/EX Pokémon in play.**
Obviously, The Gengar deck I am using has to run barely any GX Pokémon.
The stadium can kill my own GX Pokémon if I use a lot of them.
I added 1 Tapu Lele GX into my deck to help set up my turn 1 board with Pokémon Fan Club.
However, The 1 Tapu Lele GX is a test!
I don’t know if I should keep it.
I am open to idea’s.
My plan is to set up with the 1 Tapu Lele + Attack with it.
I want to kill it off before it becomes a Liability.
This is my justification for using only 1.
Now that I got the formalities out of the way.
We can talk about the Star Pokémon Gengar!
Gengar has an ability called Gnawing Curse.
**Every time your opponent puts energy from the hand onto a Pokémon they get hit for 20 Damage per Gengar in play.**
If you have 4 Gengar in play, They get hit for 80 Damage.
You combine the 80 with a Shine on your turn + opponent turn.
We reach 100 Damage with out even fighting there Pokémon.
They are half way dead!
Those high HP GX Pokémon thought they was real slick with 200 HP vs our 130 HP.
They are down to 100 now.
Who is beating who now?
130 > 100
Revenge is meal best served cold!
The Shine of Gengar!
I also want to mention another thing.
Gengar hits the below Pokémon for Weakness Advantage:
Based on the Communities overall jist, The above 2 Pokémon are expected to see some play in the up coming Format.
I feel this gives more justification for playing the deck.
What does everyone else think?
