Would my Volcanion deck still be good?

Recommended Posts

WingsofFire1014

I made a final Volcanion deck list earlier that you can look at in the Volcanion thread. Would this deck still be good after the most recent rotation? I'm not seeming to win with it anymore. Are there some tweaks that I could add to it?

It's hard a Volcanion EX deck be good itself right now. It evolved to Ho-oh/Turtonator mainly, with Volcanion EX as Tech to reinforce damage.

 

But Volcanion still can win some games for sure. Where the thread with the list is??

The thread should be on page two of the deck construction area.

 

Also, do you have any Turtonator or Ho-Oh GX deck ideas for standard.

Well I don't really have a list but, you have some good lists in there. But you know: Start 1st, Ho-oh active > Kiawe > (Choice band) > 1HKO 95% of the format next turn.

 

Just add some support like the Heat factory and Lysandre {*}, CES Magcargo could be a nice addition.

 

Review the new fire cards in the Standard and choose wisely to reinforce Volcanion, or Ho-oh/Turto, or a mix.

The problem is, the deck list I posted was for standard, not for expanded. I wanted ideas for the standard version.

Well, if you want ideas for a Standard deck it's safe to say that Volcanion isn't looking to hot right now :P.

Then what is looking hot for anything involving Turtonator in standard? How about Volcanion in expanded?

There's a chance it will be good again right?

Of course being Volcanion must be Expanded. I don't think it will be tier one again but, there is a ton of good Fire support around.

 

Just build it and play, if you win around +70% of games, it's fun enough.

 

No one can foresee what is coming, but right now, there's a lot of better options to play.

Is the new Victini Prism Star card good enough for this deck?
