    Well, I'm at it again. Remaking theme decks. This is a Gym-block theme deck, so it's for Unlimited. It's also within DCI standards (not used anymore, however), so there's no EX: Ruby & Sapphire or EX: Sandstorm cards.

    First, here's the original Erika theme deck:

    Pokémon (22) (all are from Gym Heroes)
    4 Erika's Bellsprout (Lv. 15)
    2 Erika's Weepinbell (Lv. 30)
    3 Erika's Exeggcute (Lv. 12)
    1 Erika's Exeggutor
    4 Erika's Oddish (Lv. 15)
    1 Erika's Gloom (Lv. 28)
    1 Erika's Gloom (Lv. 24)
    1 Erika's Vileplume
    4 Erika's Tangela
    1 Erika's Dratini

    Trainers (10)
    1 Celadon City Gym (Gym Heroes)
    1 Erika (Gym Heroes)
    1 Erika's Perfume (Gym Heroes)
    2 Poké Ball (Jungle)
    2 Potion (Base Set)
    3 Switch (Base Set)

    Energy (28)
    22 Grass Energy
    6 Psychic Energy

    Now it's time to remake it into an Unlimited deck that covers all the cards from Base to Skyridge (formatwise).

    For this deck, I've decided on a 3-2-1 Stage 2 line, a 3-2 Stage 1 line, 2 of a Basic Pokémon, and 3 of a Baby Pokémon. Of course, I cringe at this thought; the preassigned Pokémon for this deck is the dreaded Neo Genesis Cleffa. Nevertheless, the card actually fits in in an Erika-themed deck.

    The lines I chose were Erika's Venusaur, Erika's Dragonair, and Erika's Tangela. The mix screamed complete redo, and describing it would be too complex. Simply put, 4 of them were reassigned to be Trainers. 8 Energy, 2 Grass and all 6 Psychic, were also reassigned to the Trainers.

    Now was the time to examine the Trainer mix. I decided the Stadium mix was to be 2 Celadon City Gym and 2 Energy Stadium. The Erika Trainer was a bit too risky, so I chose Copycat as the draw engine instead, putting 3 of them in. I then mixed up the Erika's Perfume, Poké Ball, and Potion cards (as well as one reassigned card) into 3 Erika's Maids and 3 Super Potion. The last 6 Trainers became 3 Grass Cube 01 and 3 Town Volunteers.

    And now, here is Erika 2K3:

    Pokémon (18)
    3 Erika's Bulbasaur (Gym Challenge)
    2 Erika's Ivysaur (Gym Challenge)
    1 Erika's Venusaur (Gym Challenge)
    3 Erika's Dratini (Gym Heroes)
    2 Erika's Dragonair (Gym Heroes)
    2 Erika's Tangela (Gym Heroes)
    3 Cleffa (Neo Genesis) (shudder!)

    Trainers (22)
    2 Celadon City Gym (Gym Heroes)
    2 Energy Stadium (Neo Destiny)
    3 Copycat (Expedition)
    3 Erika's Maids (Gym Heroes)
    3 Super Potion (Base Set 2)
    3 Switch (Expedition)
    3 Town Volunteers (Aquapolis)
    3 Grass Cube 01 (Aquapolis)

    Energy (20)
    20 Grass Energy

    Any comments, fixes, and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
