Potpourii(sp) does not work in unlimited... and you never EVER use energy search in ANY deck at all. Same with Revive and Energy Retrieval. You're just trying to cover too many bases. Because of this, focused unlimited decks will rip you apart.

What I meant was taking into consideration what sets were available at that time. I meant evaluate it from the NeoDestiny metagame. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I knew that this deck wouldn't work in today's meta.

Doesn't matter. There's too many problems with the deck for it to even work in a ND-back environment. Let's start with the basics...

Too much energy (start with 20 and work down)
Too few Trainers (start with 20 and work up)
Bad Trainers (ditch everything, and start with Oak, Comp Search, and Item Finder)
Bad Pokemon (the Legendaries are all trash, and Lapras and Kangaskhan aren't much better)
Too many energy types

For a Potpourri deck, try using Pokemon that use as few colored energy as possible. Good examples of this are Jungle Scyther, Base Electabuzz, and Base Hitmonchan, which are also the good Haymaker cards. If I were to Potpourri, I'd go with Scyther, Buzz, Chan, Sneasel, Mr. Mime, and MAYBE Fossil Magmar. All of those are speedy Pokemon with low energy costs and can be powered either with Rainbow or DCE. Also, don't forget your Babies, which are ultimate stallers and the best defense in the game.
