For Expanded, the deck is still quite playable. You just have to take out Reset Stamp for something else, possibly an N or two (or maybe no hand disruption). The build is unplayable in Standard for the moment as it requires access to cards like Acro Bike, Fiery Flint, Ultra Space, and Heat Factory {*} to run smoothly, all of which have already rotated. If you're looking for a more budget-friendly Blacephalon build, I suggest trying Cinccino Blowns. It's quite similar to Pidgey Blowns, a deck that you can probably find online. I can provide you with my list if you'd like.

I was planning to use this new list. I would love to see your list too.

That's probably a stronger list for Green's Baby Blacephalon, the deck was weaker after the 2019 rotation. The real struggle with the deck is winning the Prize trade. To beat single-Prize decks like Mad Party or Night March, you can try running tech cards like Bursting Balloon to help accelerate your Prize trade. Giant Bomb is also pretty good against a lot of decks.

 

Here's my Cinccino Blowns list (Standard):

Zacian V is powerful but a bit expensive. I'll try to buy it. Which budget card would you put in instead? The list is really good.

By the way, I have 1 locked Dedenne-GX and I will use it.

Unfortunately, there isn't really a substitute, there isn't a better option than Intrepid Sword for the first turn set up. You can run 1 more Cinccino for draw power later on, or maybe an Oranguru SSH to preserve resources. Or maybe just add another way to find Pokemon, another Quick Ball wouldn't be bad to have. Thanks for saying the list is really good; it's done me very well so far (I've been able to beat pretty much every meta deck).

Can you send me a medium budget list? Not low like Starly Control, not high like Cinccino Blowns. 

 

I have 1 copy of Dedenne-GX, one of the expensive cards.

There isn't much in between the two decks, they're some of the much cheaper options. Here's a potential option to try out, the most expensive card in this deck is Dedenne GX and it makes no use of Jirachi TEU or anything else like that:

It's a SlowDuck deck that revolves around discarding Supporter cards from your hand to take big OHKOs. It's different from other variants flying around, I use 3 Turbo Patch to help get off a Cold Cyclone sooner with Articuno, and I run Dedenne GX instead of Crobat V to draw more cards.

I was thinking of replacing Boss Orders with Pokemon Catcher because it's cheaper. Do you have any other suggestions?

I highly discourage you from making that change. Boss's Orders is very important to the deck as it's a Supporter card, and it's needed for the damage output. Also, you can retrieve it with cards like Cynthia and Caitlin. It's only 2 copies, invest in them; they'll serve you well for a long time.

1 copy Boss + 1 another card bad again?

I wouldn’t call it bad, that’s pretty good. It’d be better to have 2 Boss, but if you only have 1, it’s alright. Replace the other Boss with a Pokémon Catcher most likely, and then swap 1 Turbo Patch for a Bede to increase your Supporter count slightly.
