    I recently changed my Empoleon/Magnezone deck into this deck in hopes of making it run much, much faster. Let me know what you think and comments and suggestions are much appreciated.

    RECORD: W:9 L:4


    Piplup x4
    Prinplup x4
    Empoleon x3
    Electrike x 3
    Manectric x 3
    Minun x 1


    Holon Mentor x1
    Celio's Network x3
    TV Reporter x3
    Night Maintenance x1
    Team Galactic's Mars x3
    Roseanne's Research x2
    Castaway x1
    Warp Point x 2
    Rare Candy x 4
    Cessation Crystal x2


    Water Energy x10
    Electric Energy x6
    Scramble Energy x3
    DRE x1


    The general Strategy of this deck is to bench snipe using empoleon and prinplup and Manetric's second attack which does straight 70 to the defending pokemon and 20 to everything on the bench the same type, also Manetric can do a decent amount of damage with his first attack which does 20 damage per basic energy attatched to Manetric so he's pretty much always doing some form of damage even if not powered up completely, or if i don't get 3 lighining on him. Minun sits on the bench for his power which lets me draw three if a pokemon is knocked out and Stantler is in there to grab supporters just in case.

    This deck went 3-2 at cities and is overall 9 and 4 (just made it a few days ago)
    Thanks for your suggestions and comments!

    i considered using CG because of the nice discard drawing, but i eventually decided on all MT electrikes becuase of the recent obsession with Absol. I've stopped two or three absol starts just by going first and using Electromagnetic Jam to stop them from attaching energies.
  4. David won a couple of cities with something like this. The deck list is posted near the end of the Ambush deck .

    prinplup is good on his own not just as a vehicle to get to empoleon so i'll keep four of them, but recently stantler has done nothing other than make me angry, so i'm doing
    -1 Stantler
    +1 Candy

    other thoughts?
