    This is a deck that has been in the works since the start of the season when I started playing in tournaments... this deck has never actually been in a tournament, but it appears to be able to do a good job... after the creation of the deck, it obtained a small following (not nearly enough to affect the game). Now that the new season approaches, I changed the deck to match... and it isn't doing too well... One last thing, this isn't the first time I posted this for the new season, but with Legends Awakened coming, I need to tune it up... Also, if a card is blatantly obvious to add then I probably don't have it but feel free to mention it... I haven't bought more cards since SW, and I have a limited budget...


    Pokemon (19)

    3-2-2-1 Infernape Lv. X (DP-DP-DP-Promo)
    2/1-3 Magmortar (MT/SW-SW)
    2-1 Arcanine (SW-SW)
    2 Smeargle (SW)

    Trainer / Supporter / Stadium (23)

    4 Bebe's Search
    3 Roseanne's Research
    1 Time - Space Distortion
    2 Night Maintenance
    3 Warp Point
    2 Team Galactic's Mars
    4 Rare Candy
    3 PlusPower
    1 Premier Ball

    Energy (18)

    18 Fire Energy

    The Strategy

    Discard energy as fast as possible, paying no attention to whether I'm decking myself out or not as long as Infernape LV. X is in play. Suicide Magmortar and Arcanine help with this concept, Smeargle drains Energy from the deck at the start of the game to ensure I don't draw them often. TGM is filler. Water = GG. Now do you see what I meant by this deck isn't doing well? the loss of Delcatty (PK) was pretty big, even though this deck used only one copy...

    Phew, that was tiring to type... I think I should also note that I WILL list cards I don't have that people recommend...


    Recommended Cards

    1 Infernape MD
    2 Bronzong MT

    this is the experimental list that will be edited based on everyone's ideas...

    a bronzong DP(i think its Dp) line could go good with this and also if your going to run arcanine make it 2-2 not 2-1
    Edit: bronzong is from MT

    Arcanine's mainly a placeholder until I can get Porygon-Z/Lunatone/Regice/Registeel/Bronzong...

    I already knew that, and I don't really care... Kingdra is just overhyped, I think I can still take it...

    Since when has weakness been the end all be all in the past? Weakness might not matter in this case. Especially with something so overly hyped as Kingdra.

    if infernape has 130 hp, then weakness does make a difference between 2HKO and 3HKO
    i think i already said this on pokebeach (same username), but yeah use bronzong.

    ragingphantom New Member

  10. burnpsy

    burnpsy New Member

    test it, test it, test it!!!! this deck rocks dude, one of the best fire decks i have seen. o ya, put in motar x, it might help with heavy damage, and to take out a kingdra.

    I've just tested the deck, and it seems that I don't draw more than 2 basics at the start of the game, usually not what I need so I need to find space for 3 Roseanne's Research...

    alakazam for powers. it helps in discarding.
  18. burnpsy

    burnpsy New Member

    No. Alakazam is a bad card, and we already have Bronzong...

    I now have a tesed matchup against Kingdra:

    Vs. Kingdra
    49-51 - Kingdra

    If my opponents pulls out a T2 Kingdra, then I've probably lost, otherwise I'm fine...

    this also comes with some changes I had to make to my Trainer line...
