    I kinda like it. It's worked out pretty well for me so far. My only concern is Gallade =P

    you have a pretty solid list as is the things i would change are:

    -2 Murkrow (SW)
    +2 Murkrow (MT))

    You want the deck to be as consistent as can be. Any starter that helps you thin your deck is good. The most you would want to go is 3-1. But personally I would go 4-0.

    -1 Darkrai #3
    +1 Scott

    If Cressilia becomes popular then ok play that one. But right now it's hard to say, and the other Darkrai has a better first attack which could disrupt your opponent. Scott helps you get your stadiums out.

    -4 Super Scoop Up
    + 4 Team Galatic's Wager

    TGW is needed in any hand disruption deck, especially this one since you have the Umbreon*. You just have to time the Umbreon* right.

    -1 Weavile D/P
    +1 Weavile S/W

    Again there is really no need for the other Weavile as it really doesn't fit the disruption scheme you have going.

    If you have any Great Ball or Quick Ball I would play those over Premier Ball. Since right now you really have no way of searching out your basics. Quick Ball at least gives you the chance that your would get them and your Lv. Xs at the same time.


    *Just a little tip when you write up your future lists: It's not so much of a problem differing cards from sets but most people go by set number rather then the Lv. of the card. As far as your list goes the average number a supporters a deck should have is around 14. Some manage to play with less like Gardevoir/Gallade or any Delcatty deck since they pretty much let you use an extra supporter per turn.

    yea i agree dont use the crappy 3/106 darkrai...its not good i think patriot has the pokemon list made out for u
     
  10. PokePockets

    PokePockets New Member

    meh, the 3/106 Darkrai allows me to search for ANY energy card in my deck, but true. I'm probably going to take Chirscobi's tips to heart, play some TGW, but not get rid of all the SSU (allows me to use Umbreon*'s Power more than once) i thought about doing 2 SW Weavile instead.

    tyranitarpownzor New Member

    true u can use him for energy searching..but dont just put him in for one effect...to me he falls in comparison to the other...i agree use 2 of sw weavile...have u thought about using the new hypno???he heals himself moves all damage 2 the other..then he does 60 damage putting them 2 sleep..that helps 4/106 darkrai...see were im going w/ this???also sidneys stadium..and maybe moonlight for free retreat

    I thought about playing some sidney stadium. True on the Darkrai as well, i'd much rather dish out damage than get some energy, i guess. I'm already playing Moonlight Stadium. I like the idea with the Hypno

    i play a deck almost the exact same as this deck, heres my list it might give you some ideas on yours:


    Pokemon:

    2-Darkrai lvl.40 GE
    2-Darkrai X GE
    2-murkrow MT
    2-murkrow SW
    2-honchkrow MT
    2-Honchkrow X
    3-Sneasle DP
    3-Weavile SW
    3-absol SW
    1-charizard* (something for weavile to power up and smack for 150 or 200 with darkrai X's power added)

    Trainers/supporters:

    2-premier ball (you need 2)
    4-Galactics mars (to further absol's baleful wind)
    4-plus power ( for maxiumum damage with darkrai X's power added)
    2-island hermit ( in case anything you want is prized like murkrow or something)
    2-rosannes research
    2- night maintenance
    2-holon mentor
    2-bebe's search

    Energy:

    1-scramble
    2-double rainbow
    4-special dark
    10-basic dark

    You dont really need to worry about gallade because honchkrow is resistant and weavile isnt weak, the only one that's weak is darkrai. also try mawile GE to stop gallade from flipping prizes.

    you dont really need moonlight stadium because honchkrow and weavile have free retreat and darkrai and darkrai and absol have:colorless retreat, it might be a good idea to put one in tho.

    hope this helps:thumb:

    I think you should try to drop one of your lines and put in more absol. You only run 2 absol, so you're almost never going to start with it.

    Trainers/Supporters/Stadiums
    2-Bebe's Search (MT)
    4-Premier Ball (GE)
    4-Team Galactic's Mars (MT)
    4-Moonlight Stadium (GE)
    2-Celio's Network (CG)
    4-Plus Power (DP)
    4-Super Scoop Up (DP)
    1-Windstorm (CG)

    -4 SSU is kind of bad for this deck. you dont have enough HP to make it worthwhile, and there arent enough tricks to warrant 4 of them
    -4 PP is way overkill
    -4 MS is bad too. Try to add some draw or something

I took a little bit of all of your tips, and redid my Darkness Falls deck, and it's working better than ever (other than the time i hit heads on my SSU and donked a Golduck/Xatu deck with 2 Hide Crowds in a row with Sp Dark energy) but that's another story. Here is my new & improved list.

    Pokemon-
    2 Murkrow Lv.10 (SW)
    2 Murkrow Lv.20 (MT)
    3 Honchkrow Lv.42 (MT)

    2 Sneasel Lv.21 (DP)
    2 Weavile Lv.30 (SW)
    2 Darkrai Lv.40 (GE)
    1 Darkrai Lv.X (GE)
    3 Absol Lv. 31 (SW)
    Pokemon=18

    Trainers/Supporters/Stadiums
    2 Holon Mentor
    2 Team Galacitc's Wager
    1 Scott

    So that's why. Just letting you know.

    2.I play 2 of each Murkrow because i only have 2 MT Murkrow to my name as well
