The cheapest one you could possibly build is Garchomp in Standard. You just need to buy the Mach Strike Theme Deck twice and you already have most of the cards that you need. That said, I have to point out that the same Garchomp line is available in Fighting type (you would have to trade for those, the ones that come with the Theme Deck are Dragon type). Personally I think that Fighting type is better (can do weakness damage to Dark types, including Zoroark-GX, which is incredibly useful when you consider how prevalent that card is).


The main deck that comes to mind when thinking of Dragon type is actually Rayquaza-GX tbh, but that's too expensive.  Garchomp is significantly more affordable.

Options are


- Double Mach strike (tho indeed, a mix between Dragon and Fight would be ideal)

- Rayquaza GX

- Ultra Necrozma GX.. Ok, UNecrozma is not the cheaper card ever, but at least is not +10 packs like Rayquaza GX and you can get some Malamar from Theme decks.


I'll check when in game for more but these 3 a priori.look the best.

I have some bad suggestions... Does that help?  :mellow: (all of these are for Expanded) 

Kingdra PrC+fliptini= 2-hit KOs and disruption.

Noivern FuF and its BREAK make it hard for your opponent to find KOs.

Giratina-EX was once very popular... Now it is meh.  The same for Tyrantrum-EX, which can be combined with metal links bronzong.

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.

They just had a "Dragon" set, but that's all we've got. <_<

"Swishonk!" That's what's happening!

Any Standard deck can be adapted to work in Expanded. Of course, all Standard-valid decks are automatically usable in Expanded, but it would probably be a good idea to include the good Expanded-only cards that your deck can benefit from (VS Seekers, Battle Compressors, Trainers' Mail, Sycamore, an Ace Spec, etc).


That said, there is no guarantee that it will work quite as well in Expanded even after being modified. If you're low on budget, I'd strongly recommend the double Mach Strike for a Garchomp deck (with the addition of Fighting type Garchomps which you'd have to trade for separately). It should still be decent in expanded, but Standard is where it'll perform the best imo.

My favorite dragon deck is Noivern-GX :P Especially with the dragon damage boosting Altarias. Obviously, if you're gonna do item lock in Expanded, Seismitoad-EX is still the king, but the toad ain't dragon type ;D Also Noivern's second attack shuts down DCE decks quite well; the bat is kinda like a combo of Seismitoad and Giratina.


Another dragon suggestion: attacking Goomy Hustlebelt seems pretty funny.


And old school RayEels or RayBoar can still sometimes do work. Especially if you click to go into Legacy instead of Expanded xP


I have also occasionally seen Kommo-o-GX decks on YT. I've even seen people suggest adding it to Garchomp decks and Lance Prism it out and slap a Super Boost on it. I dunno why really. But I imagine it's probably quite demoralizing to be beaten by a card that bad  :cool:
