I just want to say I'm not a fan of one offs, but that's just me.

But anyways, here are some things I think most people will agree on:

Pyramiding is mostly a bad idea, so go 2-2 or 3-3 on the pawniard-bisharp line. Also, aegislash needs both forms to function properly or you will only be attacking every second turn, so i recommend running 2-2, one kings sheild the other the more offensive one.


Other than that I recommend maybe replacing the mawile and pawniard lines with klingklang plasmasteel 2-2-2 line to gain an immunity to EXes, a few silver mirrors could also widen what the deck is immune to as well.

I think you can afford to drop the rainbow energy as well, since your deck only uses steel energy to attack from what I can see and rainbow energy damages your pokemon.

Other than that i recommend running higher draw support like juniper, N, shauna, colress and the likes.


Rare candy is also another good idea, especially if you add the klingklang


That's just what I can think of off the bat, I hope it helps and sorry if I'm being too critical

I'd say go full on with 4 aegislash with king's shield (or maybe 3 king's shield and 1 of the other) then get 1 or 2 keldeo EX and add in some float stones and switches.


idea is to be able to use King's shield every turn (keldeo's rushing in puts the aegislash back into the bench and resets the effect of king's shield, allowing for use on next turn) if you can't get damaged, your opponent can't take prizes while you continue to stack those 50 damage


be sure to run some stadiums, maybe skyarrow or pokemon center. idea is mainly to counter virbank city gym, king's shield protects from damage but not poison so hypnotoxic laser and virbank can slowly build damage, so countering with skyarrow can help reduce the damage from poison and also makes it easier to retreat keldeo if float stones aren't available, pokemon center allows for poison damamge to be healed when you return aegislash to bench with rush in


aegislash's attack is a bit expensive so might have to consider running victini EX for the turbo energise to speed up the energy buildup.
