You have a lot of energy and not a lot of Trainers in here.

I also need more information about your Pokemon to rate the deck, meaning I need to know the sets they're from.

At least 99 percent of the deck is either Borderline Crossing or Dragons Exalted the rest if any I forgot I'm sorry but the idea is a power dragon deck with pyschic types for special condition stall if you will my deck uses 18 energies because dragon decks tend to need a lot og energies but should I reduce to 16 and add 2 more trainer cards or lower? The idea of the deck is to stall while I beef up my dragons with energies. The misdreavus lvl 19 is from that other deck that uses a lot of cards with lv in their card name. Hydreigon and the psychic and dark types are from Dragons Exalted. Kyurem(White) and the fire and water types are from borderling crossings. As for the rest (energies and trainer cards) I threw the box ' away. Next time ill keep them.

The biggest issue is that you're trying to use too many different types of energy and too many different types of Pokemon while running only 1 copy of many of your Pokemon and not running many search trainers like Level Ball, Heavy Ball, or Ultra Ball (you do have Great Ball, though, so that's a plus). Pick the Pokemon in your deck that you want to focus on the most and rebuild the deck around those.

Ah well could I just try to get more of those colorless energies like warp or blend and that's fine also the main dragon I want is Hydriegon because he is perfect for my deck honestly I guess White Kyurem can go although ill miss him and believe it or not I have no problem with placing the correct energy I need. Also ill definetly try to get ultrball and stuff like that.

Blend Energy are very versatile and can fit any of your energy "splashing" needs within reason. The primary purpose of a Warp Energy is to be able to retreat your Active Pokemon out of a tight spot without discarding any energy to retreat it. Warp Energy might not be altogether necessary in this deck, actually.

Ty I appreciate the feedback ill trade warp energy for a trainer card. Do you think Mewtwo(the one with hypnoblast 10 damage and puts pokemon to sleep and psychic 40 damage with a secondary effect that I can't remember what it was also this Mewtwo has 80 hp.) Also I was thinking about using psychic giratina with a move that does 90 damage and hex which does 50 more damage when the pokemon is inflicted with a special condition excluding confusion I believe.

Are you playing at a league? Many leagues will not allow players to use older cards, which is what that Mewtwo sounds like it is. Giratina's energy costs look to expensive to really be a good fit for this deck.
