The Combo: Magmortar + Dialga + Ninetales MAG-DIAL 9 No Pokebodies, No Prime Pokemon, No Stage 2 Pokemon Just one LvX Pokemon that doesn't even need to be in here. Gimmick Step One: Dialga's power, "Reverse Time", places 3 energy from the discard on top of the deck. Gimmick Step Two: Magmortar's attack, "Hard Crush", discards the top three cards of the deck. 150 damage for discarding those 3 energy cards. * Ninetales' power, Roast Reveal, discards a fire energy and draws 3 cards from the top of the deck. Combined with Reverse Time, Ninetales can be used to draw pokemon or energy back into the hand from the discard pile. Reverse Time 6 times and it's game over. Ideal Active: Magmortar (1Fire, 1DCE) Ideal Bench: Magmortar, Ninetales, Dialga Roast Reveal - Once during your turn (before your attack), you may discard a R Energy card from your hand. If you do, draw 3 cards. This power can't be used if Ninetales is affected by a Special Condition. (Poke-POWER) Reverse Time - Once during your turn, when you put Dialga from your hand onto your Bench, you may search your discard pile for up to 3 in any combination of Pokemon (excluding Pokemon LV.X) and basic Energy cards. Show them to your opponent and put them on top of your deck in any order. (Poke-POWER) [2R] Hard Crush (50x) Discard the top 3 cards from your deck. This attack does 50 damage times the number of Energy cards you discarded. The Pokemon: 20 3 Magmortar CL 1 Magmortar SV 4 Magmar TM 3 Ninetales CL 3 Vulpix "Shiny" 1 Dialga X "Time Skip" 3 Dialga PL 05 "Reverse Time" 2 Jirachi RR Trainers: 24 4 Research Record 3 VS Seeker 3 Seeker 3 Bebe's Search 3 Warp Point 2 Junk Arm 3 Engineer's Adjustments 3 Pokemon Collector 1 Luxury Ball Energy:16 4 Double Colorless Energy 4 Call Energy 8 Fire Energy Pokemon Magmortar: Main Attacker. Uses Hard Crush to OHKO pokemon. If can't use Hard Crush for whatever reason, attach another fire and discard both fire leaving only a double colorless energy left on magmortar to attack for 100 damage with mantle bazooka. [gal=51456]Magmortar[/gal] Magmortar's power, Evolutionary Flame, burns and confuses your opponent's active. It only works when Magmortar first comes into play, so Seeker is required to re-use Evolutionary Flame. Magmortar's attack snipes for 30. Might be good for setting up 2HKOs. Probably just ruins the consistency of the deck. [gal=48158]Magmortar[/gal] Magmar: Eruption Personal preference. [gal=51074]Magmar[/gal] Ninetales: Hand Support Just great draw power. Also helps get fire energy into the discard quickly. Although once dialga and magmorta get their cycle going, the same three energy will be placed back and forth each time with dialga's power and magmortars attack. Leaving ninetales to sit on the bench and just burn fire for draw. [gal=51476]Ninetales[/gal] Vulpix: Shiny Searches for two fire energy and puts them in hand. By far best vulpix for this deck. [gal=42436]Vulpix[/gal] Dialga: Best way to Hard Crush someone. Agreeably the only way to make magmortar work. Warning. YOU WILL START WITH HIM. In such a case where you start with Dialga. Pray to the poke-gods you get a metal energy. Attach a metal and a DCE and swing for 50 t2 and you get to draw your hand up to 7 cards. then next turn evolve into dialga X and retreat for one less energy. [gal=42390]Dialga[/gal] Dialga X For games where you start with Dialga. It is best to just level up and retreat for two energy. Think of time skip as an attack. If it fails your turn ends or you can use "call energy" again. Time skip can also win you the game. By using "Seeker" twice and taking two prizes in a row. You might just clear the board and end the game. [gal=42506]Dialga X[/gal] Jirachi RR: Great starter. Attack can also be used during a turn for "double seeker" to clean the field. Free retreat. Good metal pokemon. Seems to fit the deck. [gal=45535]Jirachi[/gal] Trainers Seeker: Allows you to use Dialga's Reverse Time AGAIN. Most important supporter. Might need 4. VS Seeker: Allows you to use Seeker AGAIN. Most important trainer in the deck. Research Record: Running out of excuses for having this here. Replace with Poke Gear. Interviewers Questions: Searches top of the deck for energy. Bebe's Search: Pokemon fetcher. Warp Point: Magmortar only retreats for 2, but dialga retreats for 3. Junk Arm Engineer's Adjustments Pokemon Collector Energy Double Colorless Energy: Magmortar's Hard Crush requires one fire and two colorless. Perfect for attaching one fire and one double colorless. Fire: Dialga has to take 3 basic energy out of the discard for Hard Crush to put them right back. Metal: For when fighting with dialga or jirachi is a good idea. It should never be a good idea. Best Idea = Rainbow Energy Back Up for turns without the ability to travel back in time. Reverse Time: (Power Locked) Research Record Look at the top 4 cards of your deck and put as many of them as you like back on top of your deck in any order. Then, put the remaining cards on the bottom of your deck in any order. (Trainer Locked) Wow... I don't really know about dealing with Vileplume and Spiritomb. The deck is too simple to add things like Dialga G X. Basically, if you can't drop down a Dialga and Hard Crush, try to drop a seeker and pick a Dialga up from the bench and place it back down. Super scoop up to save supporter turns or donk. Or use research records and try your best if you can't use powers. Or just attack for 100 and discard two fire energy. Try to pull of putting 3 energy back on top of the deck and discarding them again for 150 damage a total of six times and you should win the game. Edit; Current deck stats. Possible Reverse Times: 12 3 Dialga 3 Seeker 3 Vs Seeker 2 Junk Arm 2 Research Records for desperate times. Use jirachi on turns you have seeker out to pick up two dialga from the bench in one turn. For turns where power spray has stopped reverse time, jirachi may be important. Otherwise it is best to just attach another fire to magmortar and use the second attack. It discards two fire for 100. That may not be 150 damage, but it isn't that bad either. In the case of vileplume, trainers like vs seeker, super scoop up, and research record will be useless. The only way to use more than three reverse times, would be to use Seeker. Jirachi would not be a good card to use two seekers with that that point, because dialga could be sent to the lost zone from hand.
