Hello PTCGO Community!

 

I'm ArtichokeCat.

This is my thread.

I have so many deck ideas that I made a thread for all of them.

Here I'll post my decks- or my versions of decks.

This will probably be for managing the idea dump of my deck ideas.

 

Feel free to leave a comment with suggestions to improve my decks.

I often have multiple variations of a deck idea, so please tell me which one you think is the best.

Well, since I recently acquired some Virizion Genesect cards, (not enough to build a deck by itself) check out my spin on it!   Virizion-Genesect...Pyroar?   Pokemon-12 3 Virizion EX 2 Genesec

Nope Ninetails isnt rotating out into the new Standard format but it will be in the Expanded format.

 

How did this deck fair out?

Seems good.

 

Maybe take out one Shauna and add a Professors Letter though?

It could maybe do with some more energy too, not sure yet though.

Here's Druddigon! Mwahahaha!

 

EDIT: Saw the Theme Deck names from Dragons Exalted. I know what to call this one...

 

Theme Deck-Like Name:

 

DragonShred!

 

Theme Deck-Like Description:

 

Shred gets through ALL effects on the defending Pokemon. With damage boost from Altaria and Muscle Band, Druddigon's mighty Shred attack obliterates anything in its way without trouble.

In addition, Milotic offers quick energy acceleration, attaching energy from the discard pile discarded from the Professor's Letter-Ultra Ball combo, searching for Druddigon and preparing to power it up at the same time!

Opponents will see their defeat as the Common Plasma Blast Druddigon Shreds their plan to bits!

 

Pokemon: 14

4 Druddigon (Shred)

3-3 Altaria (Fight Song)

2-2 Milotic (Energy Grace)

 

Trainer:36

4 Professor Sycamore, 2 Colress, 4 N, 2 Bicycle

2 Lysandre, 2 Pokemon Fan Club, 2 Skyla

 

4 Ultra Ball, 1 Evosoda, 1 Sacred Ash

2 Professor's Letter, 2 Switch,

2 Startling Megaphone, 1 Computer Search ACE SPEC

 

4 Muscle Band, 2 Mountain Ring

 

Energy: 10

6 Water Energy

4 Double Colorless Energy

 

As always, feel free to give your thoughts on this deck in the comments!

Porygon-Z!!!

 

Pokemon: 14

3-1-3 Porygon-Z (Tri-Attack)

2 Victini LT (aka Fliptini)

3 Deoxys EX

1 Thundurus EX

1 Tornadus EX

 

Trainer: 34

3 N, 3 Professor Sycamore, 2 Colress, 2 Random Reciever

4 Team Plasma Ball, 3 Rare Candy, 1 Sacred Ash

4 Colress Machine, 2 Max Potion, 1 Dowsing Machine ACE SPEC

2 Startling Megaphone, 2 Switch, 4 Muscle Band, 2 Plasma Frigate

 

Energy:12

4 Double Colorless Energy

4 Rainbow Energy

4 Plasma Energy

 

The Strategy:

Porygon-Z is your main attacker:

For 3 Colorless Energy: Flip 3 coins. This attack does 50 damage times the number of heads.

This means you can do up to 150 Damage. Deoxys and Muscle Band are to boost damage so you can OHKO EXs. Victini lets you reflip coins so you can flip again if unlucky.

 

Thundurus EX is for recovery of your Plasma Energy. Tornadus EX is for dealing with the pesky Latias EX, which blocks out the ENTIRE deck, except for Thundurus EX.

 

As always, feel free to give your thoughts on this deck in the comments below.

On the subject of Spread...

 

Kyurem Spread! AKA: War of the Kyurems :P Kyurem OP.

 

Pokemon: 16

2-2 FF Milotic, 2-2-2 BCR Dusknoir

3 Kyurem LT, 1 Kyurem PF AKA Plasma Kyurem

 

Trainer: 32

4 N, 4 Professor Sycamore, 3 Colress,

2 Pokemon Fan Club

4 Ultra Ball, 3 Evosoda, 1 Sacred Ash,

3 Switch, 2 Startling Megaphone,

2 Professor's Letter, 1 Life Dew ACE SPEC

2 Magnetic Storm, 2 Muscle Band

 

Energy: 12

12 Water

 

I've decided to add a battle report to each one.

(Eventually. I want to find a game where I win so I can show off the strategy. :P)

 

vs Lucario-Mewtwo

 

I went 1st, and got the perfect start. Kyurem LT active, a Fan Club for a Feebas and a Duskull, 2 Evosodas to evolve them, a Life Dew for Milotic, Ultra Ball and Prof's Letter to set up my discard for Milotic and a N for next turn.

 

My opponent starts off with a Mew EX with a DCE attach, and only has a Lucario EX on the bench.

 

My turn- I Ultra Ball for a Plasma Kyurem which I bench, and N to another perfect hand. A Switch to get it to the active, an Energy to power it up, and I Energy Grace 2 energy out of the discard to the Plasma Kyurem for a T2 Blizzard Burn and KO the Mew EX.

 

My opponent, IDK WHY, Lysandre's out the benched Kyurem LT (thank you very much for the free switch, I think to myself) and Missile Jabs it, which he proceeds to do for the next few turns.

 

I get my Dusknoir out, and start spreading with the active Kyurem LT. I finish off the Lucario EX with an Outrage from the Kyurem LT, and I only have 2 prizes to go. My benched Plasma Kyurem threatens the weakened Mewtwo EX (with the energy) he sends to the active with a KO, so my opponent concedes.

Lucario-Cofagrigus-Milotic!

3-3 Cofagrigus PF (6 Feet Under)

2-2 Milotic FF (Energy Grace)

4 Ultra Ball, 1 Sacred Ash, 2 Professor's Letter

2 Switch, 1 Computer Search ACE SPEC

3 Muscle Band, 3 Magnetic Storm

 

Energy: 10

6 Fighting

4 Double Colorless

 

This is in no way a perfect decklist, so please offer advice for improving this deck below!

Yeah I know about Gourgeist...

I thought Festival was going to rotate which is why I didn't buy any. :P

I'll be sure to get 3 ASAP when the Trading Threads re-open tomorrow.

Probably get more Raichu too to make a Raichu-Champion's Festival deck,

or simply shove it into Flareon. :)

Maybe Jynx-Champions Festival-Raichu if I want Total Healing Overkill. Lol

Nah I'm not going to beat the entire Battle Frontier before the 3rd.

Besides, that card is expensive, hard to set up, and probably be out sped by Matthew's Deck.

Awesome Idea, especially against Matt :P But sadly he doesn't run Skyla so I can't look at his deck :(

 

P.S. you also forgot to say waste their Lysandre :P

Hmm...yeah never thought of that. :P

 

Also the game KEEPS matching me up with people who only use

Shauna, N, Cheren, and Tierno, so I never really see it work. :(

Im looking for a deck for unlimited that would be like a new and improved durant mill deck.

Any suggestions? Is there anything like that for standard as well?

Not really, since Durant Mill was probably the most successful Mill deck there was. :P

Unless you want to add Klinklang PLS for Ex protection or some sort of HP booster like Umbreon PLF + Team Plasma Badge.

 

PS. This thread is all Standard Legal/ Modified decks. :)
