Try this out.

 

The goal is to get as much spread damage on Galarian Yamask using Donphan (earthquake attack). Mid-late game, it's your turn to give that damage back to your opponent via Galarian Yamask Spreading Spite attack. 

 

Jirachi is your set up Pokemon. 

Crobat V for drawing. 

Mew to protect your bench against another spread damage deck.

Jinx to help keep your Pokemon alive.

 

Pokémon - 21

* 1 Crobat V DAA 104
* 4 Galarian Yamask RCL 101
* 4 Phanpy VIV 86
* 4 Donphan VIV 87
* 3 Galarian Runerigus RCL 102
* 3 Jirachi VIV 119
* 1 Jynx UNM 76
* 1 Mew UNB 76

Trainer Cards - 29

* 2 Big Charm SSH 158
* 3 Switch SSH 183
* 4 Marnie CPA 56
* 3 Martial Arts Dojo UNB 179
* 2 Boss's Orders RCL 154
* 4 Professor's Research CPA 62
* 3 Pokémon Communication TEU 152
* 2 U-Turn Board UNM 211
* 4 Quick Ball SSH 179
* 1 Evolution Incense SSH 163
* 1 Ordinary Rod SSH 171

Energy - 10

* 4 Twin Energy RCL 174
* 6 Fighting Energy SMEnergy 15

Some other cards to try for consistency are Dedenne GX, Oricorio GX, Eldegoss V, as well as Jirachi TEU and Manaphy SHF. If Crobat V is out of your budget range (it's kinda expensive to get one!) then I'd look into some of these, most likely Dedenne GX and Oricorio GX, as they're some of the best support Pokemon, along with Crobat V. Just having 1 copy of each will greatly improve your deck's consistency, as it turns every search out to a Pokemon, like Quick Balls, Great Balls, and Pokemon Communication into a way to draw cards.

 

Manaphy is also a neat inclusion that I saw in your deck, it becomes much better with U-Turn Board or Air Balloon though. These Pokemon Tools let you bring up Manaphy when 1 of your Pokemon is Knocked Out and use its ability, then get it out of the Active Spot so you can attack reliably.

I'm still an intermediate player but have won a few small local events. Honestly I just watch streamers, *******, or pro games. You tend to pick up details on their decks or notice patterns among the decks they make whether it be a fun deck or a competitive deck. A lot of the game is situational so it's good to see what they do in those situations. Hope this helped and if it didn't I'm sorry haha
