    Here is my new deck I put together with some new cards I pulled/bought. Just picked up a 30cent Darkrai promo today at a local card shop!

    POKEMON:
    3x Darkrai Ex
    3x Sableye
    2x Mewtwo Ex
    1x Terrakion Ex
    1x Landorus Ex
    2x Bouffalant

    SUPPORTERS:
    2x Skyla
    4x N
    3x Professor Juniper
    1x Cilan

    TRAINERS:
    3x Hypnotoxic Laser
    2x Virbank City
    4x Dark Patch
    3x Dark Claw
    2x Pokemon Catcher (I only have one currently)
    1x Escape Rope
    1x Switch
    2x Energy Switch
    1x Crushing Hammer
    1x Energy Search
    1x Computer Search (ace spec)

    ENERGY:
    3x DCE
    9x Dark
    5x Fighting

    My strategy is basically just always have something to do on my turn, constantly set up energy, poison, and attack. Im pretty sure there is some stuff I can take away and add. But that is why I am posting here for help! I played today with a different version (-3 N, -3 Prof. Juniper) and I did alright. Did just lose haha. PLEASE HELP! STATES IS A WEEK AWAY!


    Bump for help!
    States close! Need cards!

      This is actually a pretty neat deck. However, some cards aren't reliable, such as the single Crushing Hammer. Here are some edits I would make to this deck:

      -1 Terrakion-EX
      -1 Dark Claw
      -1 Escape Rope
      -1 Crushing Hammer

      +2 Energy Switch
      +1 Skyla
      +1 Professor Juniper

      I see you have a lack in Ultra Ball, but I don't know what you should take out. I'd advise putting in 3 to 4 Ultra ball if any.
      Good Luck at States!

        This is my revised list. I used it this weekend at a local league and against my gf and it did pretty good. I was able to collect energy and move them around quite well. Everything was going quite smoothly. It could have just been the draw I had but I really think my take on this deck could take me to at least top 16 at states.

        POKEMON:
        3x Darkrai Ex
        3x Sableye
        2x Mewtwo Ex
        1x Terrakion Ex
        1x Landorus Ex
        1x Bouffalant

        SUPPORTERS:
        2x Skyla
        4x N
        4x Professor Juniper
        1x Cilan

        TRAINERS:
        3x Hypnotoxic Laser
        2x Virbank City
        3x Dark Patch
        2x Dark Claw
        2x Pokemon Catcher (I only have one currently)
        1x Escape Rope
        3x Energy Switch
        2x Crushing Hammer
        2x Energy Search
        1x Computer Search (ace spec)

        ENERGY:
        3x DCE
        9x Dark
        5x Fighting

        I have no switch in because of Darkrai's ability which is any pokemon with a dark energy attached to it has free retreat. Which helps move Pokemon around the mat freely, even Mewtwo, Landorus, and Terrakion. But I was thinking of taking an energy switch out and adding a switch just in case I run into a Garbodor.

        I'd definitely drop something for a 3rd Skyla. Maybe that Escape Rope?

          I just get the feeling I'm going to need that Escape Rope since I'm only running 2 Catchers :/ What you think? Do you think I should drop an Energy Switch for a regular Switch just in case I run into a Garbodor?

          Ah! Then yeah, that might not be a bad idea. That or Tool Scrapper.

          Or both Tool Scrapper and Switch since Garbodor is pretty dependent on the Garbodor actually having a Tool attached to it. Maybe 1 Switch and 2 Tool Scrappers as well as 2 more Skyla, dropping 2 Energy Search and all 3 Energy Switch. Just food for thought. Alternatively drop the 2 Crushing Hammer instead of Energy Search or Energy Switch. Tool Scrapper and Skyla will save you against Garbodor, or at least buy you enough time to get something active that will 1-shot the Garbodor.

            I got it. Drop an energy search since I have the Cilan, drop an energy switch, add in a Skyla and a tool scrapper.

            So I can search for any card under the trainer section of my list right? Can I energy search for a DCE (I've always wondered that)?

            Skyla allows you to fetch any card that falls under the Trainer card-type umbrella (Supporters, Stadiums, Tools, etc).

            However, Energy Search only allows you to search for Basic Energy, and as Double Colorless Energy is not a Basic Energy, you cannot search for it with Energy Search.

              Oh I didn't know you can look for all that I thought it was just bare bones trainers. What can you Junk Hunt with Sableye for? Same?

              I wish they would let you grab DCE with energy search or Cilan. So DCE just has to be luck of the draw?

              No, not the same for Junk Hunt. Just Trainer - Item class cards. AKA the stuff that was in the "Trainer" class in the HGSS and DP eras.

              DCE is either luck of the draw or Computer Search, really.

                I think it can fetch Tools, too.
