Hey PC. So, since the PLF set is about to be released, and I've been hearing a lot of hype around the new deck, Deoxys/Thundurus/Lugia/Snorlax/HypnoGym. It basically uses Deoxys to powerup attacks with its ability, Thundurus and Lugia to KO things fast, Snorlax/Lasers to stall and poison the opponent. I really like the idea, but I figured out pretty fast that it will fall to pieces against Garbodor/Darkrai/Hammers; another deck I love. This one blocks all abilities while discarding opponent's energy. A great strategy. However, that deck may lose against things like landorus and Tool Scrapper decks. another deck that Im considering is Keldeo/Blastoise/Black Kyurem. For those that don't know, this deck uses Blastoise's ability to attach incredible amounts of energy to Keldeo and Kyurem, and big blast the defending Pokémon. It's usually pretty quick, too.

So my question this time is not about rating decks. I would like you guys to help me decide which deck to run.

1) Thundurus / Deoxys / Lugia / Snorlax / HypnoGym
2) Garbodor / Darkrai / Hammers
3) Blastoise / Keldeo / Black Kyurem

Which deck?

Deck 2 seems like it would be alright, but Deck 1 would still be your best bet.

I'd be wary of hype decks that receive a lot of hype prior to a set's release, and I'd instead focus on countering the hype decks if I were in your position. Many of the hype decks I've seen in the past 4 years had counters discovered for them after the first major tournament they were used in, if not sooner than that.

Cool. I'm currently constructing a list consisting of 3 Garbo, 3 Darkrai, 4 Sableye, 4 HTL, and 4 Enhanced Hammer. It's definitely gonna be tight, but I'll try it lol.

Why would you use Garbodor with Darkrai? I guess if you use float stone it wouldn't matter. It would sure mess up TDK that's for sure!

Pretty sweet actually. Placed top 4 in two BRs, and will be heading to LA BRs next week. I'll post the list now. I think it still needs work, so any help is appreciated!
