    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 Lt. Surge theme deck:

    Pokémon (22) (all are from Gym Heroes)
    4 Lt. Surge's Magnemite (Lv 12)
    1 Lt. Surge's Magneton
    4 Lt. Surge's Pikachu
    3 Lt. Surge's Voltorb
    2 Lt. Surge's Spearow (Lv 8)
    2 Lt. Surge's Spearow (Lv 17)
    4 Lt. Surge's Rattata
    2 Lt. Surge's Raticate

    Trainers (10)
    1 Energy Removal (Base Set)
    2 Gust of Wind (Base Set)
    1 Lt. Surge (Gym Heroes)
    1 PlusPower (Base Set)
    2 Potion (Base Set)
    2 Secret Mission (Gym Heroes)
    1 Vermilion City Gym (Gym Heroes)

    Energy (28)
    28 Lightning Energy

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

    Like Brock and Misty, I decided on three 3-2 Lt. Surge lines and a predetermined Baby Pokémon, in this case Elekid. The lines I decided on were Lt. Surge's Raichu, Lt. Surge's Jolteon, and Lt. Surge's Fearow.

    With that in mind, I turned the Lt. Surge's Magneton line into the Lt. Surge's Jolteon line. Then I turned the Lt. Surge's Voltorb into the three Elekid for the deck. The rest of the rebuilding of the Pokémon block is a bit too complex for words to describe. Also, I reduced the number of Energy down to 20. Twelve cards remained for the Trainer engine.

    Now to rebuild the Trainer engine. I didn't like the effect of the Lt. Surge Trainer, so I took it out and put in 3 Lt. Surge's Treaty (the other two came out of the unassigned cards). I then took out the PlusPower and put in a Secret Mission. The Stadiums became 3 Energy Stadium (I didn't like the Vermillion City gym effect either). The Energy Removal and Gust of Wind became Super Potion. The two Potions and a preassigned card became Lt. Surge's Secret Plan. The last seven cards became 3 Lightning Cube 01 and 4 Town Volunteers.

    And now here is Lt. Surge 2K3:

    Pokémon (18)
    3 Lt. Surge's Eevee (Gym Challenge)
    2 Lt. Surge's Jolteon (Gym Challenge)
    3 Lt. Surge's Pikachu (Gym Heroes)
    2 Lt. Surge's Raichu (Gym Challenge)
    3 Elekid (Neo Genesis)
    3 Lt. Surge's Spearow (Lv 17) (Gym Heroes)
    2 Lt. Surge's Fearow (Gym Heroes)

    Trainers (22)
    3 Super Potion (Base Set 2)
    3 Lt. Surge's Treaty (Gym Heroes)
    3 Lt. Surge's Secret Plan (Gym Challenge)
    3 Secret Mission (Gym Heroes)
    3 Energy Stadium (Neo Destiny)
    3 Lightning Cube 01 (Aquapolis)
    4 Town Volunteers (Aquapolis)

    Energy (20)
    20 Lightning Energy

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