Your deck is already better than every other beginner deck I've seen in years and probably better than a lot of the advanced player decks posted on the forums as well.
Hey, It's not my fault I like rogue.
I copied this deck list from the internet (almost identical to 5th place at Roanoke Regionals). But I don't understand how to pilot it properly. I'm new player and I would be very thankful if someone more experienced explains me in short what is my game plan with this deck.
I haven't played it personally, but I think I can say how it works well enough. You want to use mysterious treasure, nest ball, and Ultra Ball to get was many Inkay out turn one as possible, and probably a Dawn Wings or normal Necrozma-GX. Try to discard Giratina with one of those items- if you decide later you want to attack with it, you can always use the ability. Also try to discard at least a couple of energy, though not too many- you'll be using Malamar's ability to attach energy whence you evolve them, but you still want to be able to the the on-from-hand-a-turn attachment. Acro bike also helps with this discard, as well as finding pokemon. If early on you need to get more pokemon out but your hand is low, you can use Marshadow small's ability. You can also use it later, but it's really best T1. From there, take a look at your oppenent's deck- which attacker is best? Should you use non-GXs? Will a fighting type hit for weakness? ...Do you need to stall with Chimecho? Did your opponent use a big attack last turn- that mimikyu can copy? Is it a good turn for Dawn Wings's GX attack (a turn they're unlikely to have Guzma)?
The stadium, being a one-of, should be saved until it is necessary or to replace a prism-star stadium. The tools, escape board, also help with retreating. Ideally, they get used on one-retreat-cost pokemon, but they make it easier for anyone who's stuck active.
That's the basics.

The truth waits for no one. That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you. The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.
