Hi welcome.

 

First you should explain a bit the deck. What pokémon are in there and specify the format you want to play in.

 

We couldn't say yes or no because based on the info provided, it would be a blind call right now.

 

Bring your deck and spread your ideas¬† for change to get the proper advice and thoughts. ūüôÉ

Since they mentioned top deck academy, I'll assume they're using this decklist in the standard format:

That said, I'm not really sure why the people who made this deck put Darkrai in there to begin with, especially as a one of, I've never seen anyone use that card. I think most Darkbox decks run a copy of Umbreon & Darkrai-GX (UNM 125) to punish playing Dedenne, but if you don't have one I feel like Hoopa (DAA 111) would also be a decent pick since it can attack early game without the help of Hydregion.

You're welcome. I didn't know about the Academy channel. Seems no extremely high level tho, although I just took a fast sight only.

 

Have fun!

Umbreon & Darkrai-GX (UNM 125) doesn't get talked about enough for how strong it truly is... I use it with a hydreigon build and that can quickly power up the 6 energy GX attack for full effect which is that automatic knockout combined with your opponent is unable to play any trainer cards next turn. It is VERY STRONG. I shut opponents down when i get it pulled off on my 2nd turn. (green exploration to get rare candy and evolution incense to evolve into hydregion, crobat for some cards and in particular energy, then dedenne gx for more energy and boom there is the 6 energy on Umbreon & Darkrai-GX). It's so good.
