    Okay here is the Decklist for another (yes another) Gardy/Gallade Deck. But..... this one (yes this one) took 1st in Citys. Please post you opinions on how to improve this deck.

    Pokemon 17

    4 Ralts SW

    3 Kirlia SW

    3 Gallade SW

    2 Gardevoir SW

    1 Gardevoir LV.X SW

    4 Absol SW

    Trainers/Supporters 28

    3 Celio's Network

    3 Team Galactic's Wager

    3 Roseanne's Research

    3 Team Galactic's Mars

    3 Professor Oak's Visit

    4 Quick Ball

    4 Rare Candy

    3 Night Maintenance

    2 Warp Point

    Energy 15

    7 Psychic Energy

    4 Fighting Energy

    4 Double Rainbow Energy

    Okay the Srategy of this deck is (of course) to start with Absol and demolish there set-up. While doing this you are using the heck out of Trainers and get Gallade and Gardevoir ready for battle.

    Once Pappy is all powered up it's game time. Is a big guy in your way? Just blow it up with Psychic Cut (heck blow anything up with Psychic Cut).

    And all this time you have been using your Benched Gardevoir's Telepass to use your opponent's Supporter along with your own.

    And if you need to knock out some basic Pokemon you use Bring Down to knock out your oppnent's lowest HP Pokemon for an automatic prize (yes this is nice).

    And after all that's done your oppnent's face should look like this :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:.

    Team Galactic's Mars and Professor Oak's Visit are your draw power baby.

    Absol/Team Galactic's Wager are for killing your oppnent's hand. But you must think when using these in a combo.... NEVER use absol if your oppnent's hand is big this is Team Galactic's job..... NEVER use Team Galactic's Wgaer if your oppnent's hand is small you're just wasting it.... use Absol when hands are small.:wink:

    Rare Candy (you guessed it) to quickly Evolve Ralts to Gallade/Gardevoir.

    Roseanne's Research is to get your Ralts on the Bench so you can Evolve to Gardevoir and use Telepass (this = 2 Supporters a turn) (this = THE AWESOME).

    Quick Ball is to get a (no pun intended) quick Pokemon.

    Potion is to make sure you knock out your oppnent's Pokemon with Bring Down not yours.

    Celio's Network is to search for Gardevoir/Gallade (whoever is most handy at the time).

    Night Maintenance is to fish out Gardevoir LV.X/Gallade from the Discard pile.

    And at the end of the day when you accept your prizes you should look like this :biggrin::cool:.

    I think the rest is obvious. If you don't understand something feel free to ask!

    I would imagine that the potion helps with Bring Down?
    If you have a TSD add one for a Night maintenance
    Max out the rare candy take out one energy
    +1 mars - 1 potion

    You would be right in saying so! About the potions that is. Me? A TSD? Hehe that's funny. I can put in another Night Maintenance tho. I'm getting to that as we speak. 3 Mars? that could work.

    Okay done go take a look at the list. I'm still working on the Rare Candy tho.

    I'm thinking -1 Psychic Energy +1 Absol

    -1 Fighting Energy +1 Rare Candy

    Would this be better? Please alert me *IF* I just so happen to be wrong. (like that'll happen)

    I tried using Absol and TGM in a Gardy/Gallade deck (with a few other techs) at Cities the other day and failed miserably, since getting things out was too irregular. Also, if you get into a mirror match, TGM isn't very good for you since your opponent will take advantage of this and bleed you dry with it.

    What age group do you happen to be in, just out of curiosity?

    why do you run 4 celios?

    you can abuse their celios with you only need 2-3 celio for gardy and then u can use their supporters...

    Senior. But my brother is using the deck and he is in Junior Division. And no one in the Juniors has Gardilade. The Seniors and Masters are hoging all of the Gallade. This is how he won!:biggrin: So the whole thing about a mirror match is no problem.

    Because my brother (he's playing this deck) is in the Junior Division and they don't have Celio's Network. They have Bebe's but not Celio's. The Seniors and Masters are hoging those too.:nonono:

    I didn't mean the trainer card itself, i meant the amount of pokemon searching supporters... I think that 2-3 would be enough... (you've got 4 (3 celio &1 bebes)

    Ahhhh okay I'll take out one Bebe's (the worst one).

    Okay I read the list and like I said in pm I like it I'm gonna try it. But this deck is playing in the Junior Division so I'm not gonna put in the tech cards because no one in the Juniors runs anything that I'll need them for. GL at future tournys!

    Does anyone else have anything to say? Any opinions anyone?

    Props to you on the deck, and major props to you for giving it to your brother to run!

    Happiness is a Junior Champion.

    Thanks! But I didn't give it to my brother I built it for him (they're his cards not mine).

    But on the down side he won't let me use it in the Southaven CCs this Saturday.

    Stingy little ungrateful brat!(just kidding).

    I have decided to take out the Potions. What do you think I should put in?

    -2 Potion or NM
    +2 Warp Point

    A simple card to replace another simple card.
    I'm sure he can have some fun w/ Warp Point, then Gardy LvX's power, then KO!
