    Hey guys, I'm hoping to go to regionals this year and this is the deck I built;

    Throh x1
    Arcanine x3
    Growlithe x4
    Cilan x2
    Mienshao x2
    Meinfoo x2
    Larvesta x4
    Volcarona x2
    Excadrill x1
    Drilbur x2
    Riolu x3
    Lucario x1
    Chansey x2
    Blissey x1
    Terrakion EX x1
    Entei EX X1
    Sawk x1
    Cheren x3
    Pokemon Communication x4
    Skyarrow Bridge x1
    Fire Energy Basic x12
    Fighting EEnergy Basic x7

    The main point of this deck is to burn them out. Using Arcanine to burn them and Volcarona to do double damage with burns. Excadrill will do damage to the bench along with the other card. What do you guys think?

      I'd do something like this:

      Arcanine x4
      Growlithe x4
      Larvesta x4
      Volcarona (DEX) x4
      Emolga (DRX) x3
      19

      Cheren x3
      Juniper x4
      N x4
      Random Receiver x2
      Heavy Ball x3
      Pokémon Catcher x3
      Super Rod x2
      Tool Scrapper x3
      Switch x2
      26

      Fire Energy Basic x12
      Double Colourless Energy x2
      14

      I've thickened your Pokémon lines for maximum consistency and added 3 Emolga DRX. Emolga is a great starter Pokémon because you can easily get some basic Pokémon on your bench which is great in modified. I've removed the Fighting type Pokémon and Entei EX and added some more Trainer cards. 4 N and 4 Juniper alongside 3 Cheren provides good draw support while Random Receiver gets you those supporters more easily. Tool Scrapper is very useful against Garbodor which otherwise shuts down Burning Scales and the strategy of your deck. Switch is useful to prevent being locked with a Volcarona without energy in the active position, Heavy Ball let's you search your Pokémon with a high retreat cost (every Pokémon but Emolga) with no disadvantages. Double Colourless Energy allows you to attack with Volcarona faster.

        The first thing I see, that I thought of as "meh" was the 4 N. I don't want to give my opponent the opportunity to draw a new hand and possibly get somthing that can screw me over. I will not be playing in modified. This years Regional Tournament plays from Black & White on up. So HG/SS will not be a legal play set. Would the list you gave me still be in effect? Cause I have every card from the Dark Explorers and I'm starting my Dragons Exalted collection and unless tool scrapper is in there I cannot play it. I agree with the Juniper however I dissagree with the taking out of the fighting pokemon cause the double burn + the bench damage = (to me at least) an easy win. Doing 30 damage to a bench pokemon alongside volcarona doing it's "double burn". Now that you know that this will be only Black & White on up what do you say about the list and modifications?

          I see, though you don't have to play N everytime you have one in your hand. Playing conservative can be very important in the current BW-on format, and late game when you're behind, N can give you the opportunity to come back. A well timed N works wonders so I've learned over the past few months. The list I posted is BW-on and is tournament legal, and Tool Scrapper probably won't matter too much as long as your metagame isn't filled with Garbodor. I thought the fighting Pokémon would only make your deck more inconsistent as you don't need them for your deck to work properly. Of course you can swap some cards with fighting Pokémon if you prefer.

            I like the fire fighting concept of burn and then smash. But I'll see what I can do to modify the deck because you do have some good points. I was seeing how I wasn't getting many basic pokemon. I want to keep the blissey because of heals. But I might throw in the emolga for basics only.
