    Pokemon (13):

    Kabutops MD x3
    Kabuto MD x2
    Omastar MD x2
    Omastar PK x1
    Omanyte PK x2
    Aerodactyl MD x2
    Zapdos MD x2

    Trainers (31):

    Professor Oak's Visit x4
    Holon Fossil x4
    Rare Candy x4
    Fossil Excavator x3
    Roseanne's Research x3
    Team Galactic's Wager x3
    Super Scoop Up x3
    Dome Fossil x3
    Mysterious Fossil x3
    Night Maintenance x1

    Energy (15):

    Double Rainbow Energy x2
    Scramble Energy x2
    Fighting Energy x8
    Water Energy x3

    Strategy: Well, try for a fast Kabutops. Stop Trainers like Candy, Warp Point, TSD, NM, etc. Can be very annoying, especially in mirror match (lol, no fossils can be played by them). Spread with Tops/Aero/Zapdos too, then play Star for Devolving them, hopefully getting a KO. Then Wager all those Evolutions back into their hand, and stop them from Candying back with Tops. Aero either makes them A) take damage when they use their Powers, or B) Make them hesitant to use their Powers, which is the goal. If you can lock dow their Trainers, Powers, and Evolutions, plus spread, the game's won IMO. It's tough for them to set up, they can't have any extra tricks up their sleeves like Magmortar's Torrid Wave or another Omastar's Primal Swirl. Sure, they can actually still use Powers, but they'll take damage, which is also good, obviously. 2 Telepasses from Gardy = 70 HP. Which is in the KO range of Kabutops. Using Teleportation actually hurts them, and might make them think twice about actually Teleportationing or Retreating. Tops keeps a constant flow of damage to the Bench, making it not safe for them to hide on the Bench until they have back up, sacking Starters like Pachi or Phione or Sentret. Zapdos is to damage the Bench in the first place, so Tops can spread. It also allows some surprises, like play it, make that 40 damage from Aero on Gardevoir 50, Candy Mysterious Fossil to Omastar, Devolve the Gardy, KO on the Ralts. Fun. Holon Fossil is very nice here, obviously, it makes Aero a Basic and Kabutops and Omastar Stage 1s, which is great. So, this is my version of Fossils... I'm using it at Brs, so comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    You need a starter. I fossil or Zapdos start would be terrible.

    Take out Zapdos. Too risky.

    Add in Phione, Pachirisu, or Rotom IMO.

    Rotom? What?

    Pachirisu? Huh? Gets out Zapdos... yay.

    Phione? Maybe... but, Evolving isn't a problem.

    Dome Fossil is the Starter. T1 20.

    Zapdos is a very good card in this deck IMO. It's helped alot.

    With only 7 other basics, I'd say it is......NOT!!!!

    I'd recommend removing Zapdos + Super Scoop Ups.

  5. KAZUTO!!!

    KAZUTO!!! New Member

    Hm? 7 other Basics? No, there's 6. Count again.

    Also, Mysterious Fossil is an okay start, you can Candy it to Tops.

    Okay, so I'll add Relicanth instead of Zapdos. Oh, yay, now I have 5 good Starters, except one makes the deck a turn slower. YAY!

    Zappy can stall till I get an Excavator or Holon Fossil or actual fossil. It has 100 HP. It's not going to get T2 donked very easily.

    Old Amber is the worst start, with only 50 HP. Hopefully, you can draw into something you can use.

    SSU isn't just for Zappy, you know. It's also for Omastar.

    Yes, Relicanth is waaaaayyyyyyy better than Zapdos. Play that instead now.

    Fine, I see what ya mean by the SSU's. Keep them in too. I can't think of any other fixes for now, so, good luck at Battle Roads!!!! :thumb:

    I have 16 cards in here that allow me to automaticly get a fossil from my deck, including fossils, and not counting straight draw. Think I can manage that with a 100-HP Basic as my starter?

    Relicanth is also a turn slower, and doesn't help at all with Kabutops's spreading. Seriously, IMO, Zappy, who can also stall mid-late game, and help with Kabutops's spreading, is a better choice.

    Play a second Omanyte PK, making it 2-2-2 and only 1 Old Amber, don't expect Battle Frontier or Lati-Lock to come up, but just in case, you have Omanyte, and Holon Fossil. To be honest I wouldn't play any Old Amber at all, so...

    -1 Excavator
    -2 Old Amber
    +1 Omanyte PK
    +1 Mysterious Fossil
    +1 Omastar PK

    u dont need a starter.. Fossil start is what u want.. add in more dome fossils.. And play the md omanyte.. It restores your fossil and the helix fossil speeds up the evolution process.. take out zapdos for aerodactyl.. then looks good. I would also try to through in a 2-2 line of claydol by taking out super scoop up and a fossil escavator. then take out 1 pov and 1 roseanes for 2 bebes, or celios to get your claydol.

    Omanyte PK is much better because it gets Aerodactyl around Lati-Lock and Battle Frontier by playing them to the bench as Basics, plus Fossil Excavator can easily grab a Fossil from the discard

    Prize_Card: I have 3 Dome Fossils... that's all I need. Why? Because too many, and I have useless junk in my hand, AKA Dome Fossil. You don't see 4-3 (no Lv.X) Magmortar lines around here, do you? Or 4-4-1-1-1 Gardevoir/Gallade lines? Also, what Po-Po-Pocchama said. Omanyte PK is better. More Aerodactyl? Why? No real point... just takes up room, and 2 is enough. Plus, Zapdos is better then stuff I don't actually care about in my hand. I would want to add in Claydol, but SSU and Excavator are important. I would like to add in Dol, though, but I don't know what to take out.
