Well, what I can see it's the Muscle band. As it is from the XY set and not reprinted, it's what makes the deck only playable in Expanded. I would switch it for a FFB and it will be playable in Standard (and still in Expanded).

Thanks, Any feedback if I should change anything to make it more competitive against the Standard Meta?

​As far as I know i've seen alot of people running 4x enhanced hammer and 4x crushing hammer, This could wreck my deck pretty solid if they manage to get at least 3 of those. Any card I should look for?

I would go for a pair of Enhanced hammer myself to battle Mewtwo decks a bit.

 

Another very nice card it's Special charge. Allows you to recover the DDEs from discard which can be quite important medium-late game.. One should be enough imo.

 

Other that that, the deck looks good and pretty solid. Just take care attaching tool to Garbo if still Shaymin-Hoopa to play or if against Megas decks for Hydreigon-Giratina. You would shut down yourself. That's why I always liked more the non Garbo version but now Garbo rulz.

I don't have experience with this deck myself, but if you're affraid of energies being removed you can always try benching a Carbink to avoid that.

It only works on basic Pokemon that have basic energies with them.

Alright, a few things.  I really feel that you don't need more than 1 copy of Hydreigon EX, its ability will normally be shut down with garbodor, and in most situations, you'll want to use giratina as a dragon attacker.  To replace it with another pokemon (other than a second shaymin, which you say you need), I think a baby yveltal would be pretty good.  With Garbodor, hex maniac is largely unnecessary, and I feel that a second copy of lysandre would be far far better as a replacement.  As for other changes, i recommend removing the reverse valley, its largely unnecessary if you run more fighting fury belts (three is a good number).  Switch vs Escape Rope is personal preference, either one works, however another interesting option is using Olympia, is a very underrated supporter card.  Also, i feel another dark energy would be really good, 9 seems to be the magic number in my experience.  

 

Overall Changes:

 

-1 Hydreigon EX

-1 Hex Maniac

-1 Muscle Band

-1 Reverse Valley

-1 Skyla

 

+1 Shaymin EX

+1 Lysandre

+2 Fighting Fury Belt

+1 Darkness Energy

 

 

Optional:

-1 Switch

+1 Escape Rope / Olympia (either of the three work fine)
