  1. This deck rocks! The only bad thing is, it is a grass/fighting deck. Fire type is a very common type, and grass pokemon in this deck (such as Cradily) are weak against fire. Otherwise, this is a ruthless deck.

    Okay....... I would generaly try to keep with one Stage 2 Pokemon. In this deck you have 2. Pick one and go with it!!! Two are just too hard to work with in E-on. And anything you only have one of is probably not worth having. Take a look at dkates E-on deckbuilding tips in his signiture. Look him up in the members section.

    I would have to disagree. I used to play alot of 2 stage 2 decks in Neo-On and there is no difference here other than breeder is rare candy. But I do see what is the problem. 4 Evolution lines? You have 2 stage 1s and 2 stage 2. Now when running a deck of two stage 2's, most likely it is not safe to run another evolution line. I would change that. EIther have 1 stage 2 and 2 stage 1's or have two stage two's and keep it at that. But really, do what you want.
  4. Well if I do, what will i replace it with?

    I assume that all the single trainers is because you don't have any more. That is kind of OK for now, but be careful with having too many supporters in an Armaldo deck.

    It is difficult to play two Stage-2s (but not impossible) if you play no other evolutions. You also want to have at least 2 of each Stage-2 which shouldn't be difficult for you to get since they are from the theme deck. So we will start with

    4 of each Fossil
    2 of Stage-1
    2 of each Stage-2
    2 Rare Candy

    We then need some Pokemon that we can use as starters even though the Fossils can be quite useful. Pick 5-6 of them, like Solrock, Volbeat, Illumise, Seviper, Cacnea (w/power), Carvanha, Hitmonchan EX. The main criteria is that they should work well at keeping the opponent at bay while you get your big guns going.

    The end result will not be a turnament quality deck, but it should do fine for casual play.
  6. After going to the exDragon tournament, I have taken apart my Cradily Armaldo deck, in exchange for a Latias ex Deck. Please tell me if I should add more of one trainer card or other specific cards.
