Cool thank you! I have been checking that out a bit but I am confused with some of these decks that only have like 4-5 energy cards, maybe I have a lot to learn in terms of deck building but it seems very low? Also, it will take a long while to obtain all those cards unless I spend money (which I am trying to avoid). I am having fun right now with the theme decks and theme event tournaments and trying to win and gain extra packs.
Very few decks can afford to go that low. They are basically all ones that use double colorless and that alone, and even so they almost always use special charge to get energy back from the discard pile.
I have a few GX cards right now as well (never played with any of them).
Not sure if any of those are good to build around?
Sylveon can be used in control/disruption decks, if that's a strategy you're inrerested in. Gardevoir is very strong, but you'll need minimally two copies and that will be expensive. Ho-oh and Nihilego have their uses, and you could probably build a solid deck around the phoenix. I'd suggest paring it with Kiawe.
Another side note question - I obtained a second Mach Strike Deck that is NOT trade locked, is that worth anything in trade?
It is, actually. I don't know its exact value, but it's not irrelevant.
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.
