    I got the SW Lavaflow and slightly changed it and I played my brothers and I was unbeatable. All I did was change the trainers. Can anyone tell me why?

    Because your brothers stink or they are playing grass.

    One had an extremely powerful fire and a really powerful water.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    I just play-tested it against all of my other custom decks and It PWNED! i played it against a deck with 2 DP Rhyperoir, 2 Pk Machamp and a MT Rampardos. It pwned. I'm about to try it against a Phycic deck. BTW, my brothers do not stink. for the longest time i had a losing steak ever since i started Pokemon.

    Sorry, but Magmortar is by no means broken. Blissey has a similar attack that truly is broken. Why not try that? Something must be wrong if your brothers can't bring down a single Magmortar...

    Hmm it seems you just play casual. If you played actual Premier tournaments you'd get stomped.

    Unless your opponents are on aquadots, you'll have a hard time with this at tournies.

    In actual tournaments, It's pretty standard to get out the Pokemon you need by T2/3 tops. T4 is pushing the ability of your deck to come back from that far behind in setup time.

    Blissey is easily T2-3 doing 40-60 damage, and Mario is doing 40+20 by T2/3 as well.

    Magmortar can't hold a candle (pardon the pun) to the common decks out in normal tourneys.

    If you want, you can post your list in the deck help and strategy forum, and we can give it an overhaul.

    So, to answer your question: No. Lavaflow is actually a pretty sub-mediocre deck, and not strong...

    Protip: Theme decks, even slightly altered ones, aren't broken.
    In fact, most people use them to make jokes when commenting on how bad another deck is.
    While I'm not arguing that you could have easily defeated your friends in casual play, you usually won't be able to get more than one win (if that) with one at a real tournament.
    Look at some of the decks in the "Archetypes" forum here, and read their strategies. Those are examples of decks that can survive in competitive play.
