      You have far too many lines of evolution (things like Glalie are completely pointless here) and far too many energy cards.

      Decidueye GX is virtually unplayable without either Forest or Rare Candy and the regular Decidueye is straight up unplayable.

      2 Professor Kukui
      3 Hala

      4x Rare Candy
      3x Max Potion
      3 Choice Band
      I'm not sure of numbers but that's more what you want to aim for. You only use Alolan Ninetales in a Decidueye build to bench snipe, same reason you use Koko (hits everything for 20) then you lay down damage with Decidueye GX via its ability. Tauros GX is essential as it gives you a hard target to hide behind that your opponent will not damage.

      You limit yourself so so much by trying to only play SM> cards and you'll have a hard time facing down even semi competent opponents with semi decent decks simply because you have no way to get past basic staples like Lysandre. I put Sycamore in your list and I know its not SM but if you can make an exception for Ranger then you can make an exception for a good card

        The thing is, I want the deck to avoid the set ban for as long as possible, also Decidueye GX is really expensive, and I choose to play budget

          then i dunno what critique you're looking for. If you won't invest in $2 worth of professor sycamores and a few competitively viable cards then all I can say to you is good luck buddy

            I have the Sycamore cards, it's Decidueye GX that costs a bit much, what about a Tapu Koko GX deck? I have 4 of them, also can I use ANY print of double colorless?

              Yeah Koko GX is really viable, I'll throw you a quick list together if you want?
