    Hey guys, today I'm posting my deck and hoping to get some input on it. I trying to figure out whether to aim for T1 Night Spear or try to set up for a T2 Night Spear. Input on this deck is very appreciated. Here's the list:

    3 Darkrai EX
    1 Keldeo EX
    2 Sableye
    2 Absol
    3 Deino
    2 Hydreigon
    Pokemon 13

    1 Computer Search
    4 Max Potion
    4 Dark Patch
    3 Ultra Ball
    1 Float Stone (for Keldeo)
    3 Pokemon Catcher
    3 Rare Candy
    2 Eviolite
    Trainers (Items) 21

    4 N
    3 Professor Juniper
    2 Bianca
    3 Skyla
    1 Colress
    Supporters 13

    10 Basic Dark
    3 Blend
    13 Energy


    I'm defiantly looking for a quick Night Spear as of T1-T3. Also by then I would have liked to have some things set up (ex. Hydreigon, 2nd Darkrai, Absol on bench.).

    I having trouble with consistency of Darkrai EX and Hydreigon. Thanks ahead of time for your help. All advice is appreciated.

    First things first though, you have 14 pokemon and 15 supporters, so your deck list is actually at 63. You'll have to trim some cards to make it playable.

    I would personally cut out Ghetsis, but that's just me. Not sure what else you'd want to eliminate.

    Sorry about that. Should be fixed now

    Is the float stone worth it? Wouldn't a card that benefits the deck instead of 1 card be better? Or is there something I'm missing here?

    While float stone is good on Keldeo, you can Dark Trance onto and off of Keldeo and therefore, with Dark Cloak, have free (hooray) retreat, no float stone needed in most Darkrai decks. Unless you're using something really weird, Darkrai is the alternate to float stone. 4 Max Potion is honestly a bit much with Junk hunt and so many skylas, so I might cut that down to 3 or maybe (big maybe) 2. That leaves room for that 4th Catcher, 4th Juniper, and maybe that 4th Ultra Ball.

    You are right about the Keldeo EX thing that was my plan. I like the idea of simply Dark Trance energys over and back. I thought about adding 1 more Deino and Hydreigon for consistency. I'm thinking about keeping Juniper, Catcher, etc. the way they are and adding Dark Claw line. Going 4-0-3 or 3-0-3 on Hydreigon seems consistent. Dropping Max Potion seems like a definite possibility. I will defiantly try these suggestions out. Thanks for Your Help.

    Although I agree with with you Darkrai is the alternative, I think Darkrai Decks might want a float stone or 2 because of Garbador.

    That is a true factor, but, with Plasma Freeze out people will most likely opt towards the Really strong decks aka Keldeo\Blastoise, Darkrai, Thunderus\Deoxys, and CobaKlang ( not saying anything against Garbodor but). Would adding Dark Claw be worth it? Give me something else to try to add in or out. Thanks for Helping

    Blastoise actually went down in popularity, and Big Basics w/ Garbador won 5 State Championships, tied with Darkrai decks, As for your deck, I'd say take out eviolite. No need for it its better to have Dark Claw to hit for 110

    Wow, I didn't Know that. That is a great idea! -1 Max Potion, -2 Eviolite +3 Dark Claw

    3 Dark claw is a bit much (for me personally) since it doesn't work on the Dark Trance Hydregion... You can Junk hunt them out at most times that you REALLY need one.

    If you're going to use Float Stone, I would just use one and only then based on your local meta. Then again, if you're seeing a lot of Garbodor in your area you might want to try using something besides Darkrai, ha ha.
