I'm returning to the TCG after a long absence (how long? Team Rocket long.) and looking for some advice on building a deck I'll enjoy playing. I'm trying to construct a deck that (a) has a theme and (b) doesn't have some instantly obvious counter (like it doesn't work against water decks or something). I have the start of a deck design in mind, but I could use some advice on how to finish it, as well as a sanity check that I haven't missed some simple way to neuter it. Any advice would be appreciated. Pokemon: 20 4 Porygon 4 Porygon2 4 Porygon-Z 4 Ho-oh 4 Kecleon Trainers: 16 ~Not sure what to put here. Energy: 24 3 :fire: 3 :fighting: 3 :lightning 3 :grass: 3 :water: 3 sychic: 3 :metal: (basic) 3 :dark: (basic) The basic plan is: feed Ho-ohs lots of different colors of basic energy to pump their attacks. Evolve the Porygons quickly and use Porygon-Z's Conversion to hit the opponent's weak points whenever possible. Feed Kecleons whatever colors are needed to let them tank the opponent while the other pokemon are powering up. I figure I'll need to use trainer cards that'll let me pull lots of energy, from the deck and from the discard pile; supporters would benefit from Porygon2's Download, but I suppose I shouldn't rely on it. So what are your thoughts?
