ok so just for laughs I decided to give the deck wizard a shot and see what it comes up with by selecting malamar-ex and sharkpedo-ex. This is what it generated based on those 2 picks

As you can clearly see by this decklist, the trainer cards it picked were completely randomized, 7 of which have absolutely no relevance to the decks selected pokemon. This deck would almost guarantee that your not only going to lose, but make you look like you have absolutely no idea how the game is played. I for one strongly believe that some fine tuning aught to be done to the deck wizard so the user playing the auto built deck doesn't make a fool out of themselves when they try to play a game with it.

The deck wizard, Mick, is terrible.  But you might be surprised how well they can do if the player is good enough.  TheTopCut had a Wizard Wednesday series, and won a few of them.  Thewin percentage of such decks will never get over 20%, but it's amazing that they can compete at all.

Yeah It honestly might as well have tossed in whichever energies RNGesus decided the deck should include. It wouldn't make the deck any more or less garbage.

The intended use of the Deck Wizard is not to generate decks. The Deck Wizard's sole purpose is to provide us with our daily share of LOLs. The "Pick Random" button is a work of art.

I got one thing to say: Deck Wizard is definitely NOT infallible, but it CAN get you started.

 

 

It goes without saying that you shouldn't think it'll be too good purely based on two cards.

 

For instance, I just picked Guzzlord and Xerneas in extended format and it ended up literally just putting those two into a deck with 18 other colorless pokemon. I was like "what."

Deck Wizard is basically only good for making fun, stupid decks to play against friends in a Deck Wizard format battle. A tip is self sustaining, basic Pokemon are always the best to choose. For example, Boltund V is a lot better choice than something like Chesnaught BREAK. (Is that even how you spell Chesnaught? I haven't seen one of those cards in sooo long.)

Gave it a try myself, went for unlimited with having the game randomly pick the cards it would be "themed" around. This is the mess it came up with: very randomly a Grass-energy user in a deck it doesn't belong in, 4 Machamps to 3 Machokes, Beast Ring without Ultra Beasts, Crasher Wake without Water Energy, and Lysandre Prism Star without Fire Pokemon.

4 Hop for draw support is great but also playsets of Pokeball and Quick Ball is incredible!

This is probably one of the best deckwiz decks I have ever seen!

P.S. Lol, gave me more Tranquill than Pidove!

What’s more suspicious about deck wizard is that they always put in 20 energy.

The deck wizard once made a deck with 1 Charizard EX and 3 M Charizard EX. That stupid thing knows nothing about strategy, and not even basic things like including enough basic Pokémon!

I have a question. What is the deck wizard?

Also,  thanks for the warning if I ever do find out what it is.  🤔

It is an evil virus within the PTCGO system that plagues players with terrible decks! 😄

 

When you go to make a new deck it asks you which format you would like. Up the top you can choose Deck Wizard. It then proceeds to ask what your two favorite Pokemon are and then builds a deck around them. Not to be used if you want a good deck, but if you want a laugh however...

Fixed it for you. anyone who thinks an  software from 10 years ago is gonna be able to give you a good deck out of all the possible combination of cards, can't be that bright.
