    Pokemon

    4 Absol SW
    4-3-1 Magmortar

    Energy
    4 Scramble energy
    3 Holon FF
    9 Fire

    Trainers
    4 Roseanne
    4 Celios
    2 Cess crystals
    1 Streanth Charm
    2 plus power
    3 Steven advice
    2 prof rowen
    3 Quick balls
    2 NIght maintenance
    2 Warpoint
    2 WIndstorm
    3 Castway
    2 Potion


    Strategy
    U start out with absol and own your oppenets hand with the aid of mars. If they have a claydol out just cess crystal ur absol so it shuts that down. In the mean time your charging up your magmortar(preferably with 3 one each). When they knok out your absol bring out the magmortar attach a scramble and start sniping with one bring out another to start killing. The other one can be the x just to own. Potion helps it heal along with its power. I maxed out the celios and roseanes because i had basics and energy problems. To stay on the safe side i added thos in. Holon FF is a key to this deck in my area because i know im gona have some good tecker (did i spell tht right l0l)in states playing empoleon. This helps so much.
    Concerns
    My weakness. Im scared of water. I know im gona have alot of people to play water so im not sure what to do. Im scared im not gona be able to get the FF out on time

    Any advice

    i dunno if Cessation Crystal is a good choice for this deck, especially if you are using Magmortar SW, and if you aren't using Magmortar SW then you should IMO. Water will be a problem. IMO you should drop the 3 potion and add 1 more FF and 2 Pluspower, and maybe drop 1 Strength Charm for a 3rd PlusPower

    9/10

    see but thts just its im sometimes so scared of something my deck will be revolved around me beating it and when states come i see some if almost none of the pokemon. then those 4 FF will be useless and the porion comes and handy so much. as for the cess crystal im just gona attach it to absol in the start of the game so i cn shut them down. Its one of those cards tht you have to know when the right time to use it, Should i use streath charm or plus power. i always like straenth charm better because i could search for it with castaway and pluspower can stack and its not a tool. so idk what to do ADVICE?

    i agree about running cessation crystals i like how he has the holon energies so he can stall for 1 turn and then retreat and bring out a magmortar

    You need Minun and a 4th Scramble.
    3 Str. Charm? Go for 1 Charm and 2 PlusPower.
    Mars is a nono. Steven's is better.

    i think you would have to get really lucky to hurt a claydol deck with absol, and with just basic magmorter, with no support or energy acceleration, i think mag will have trouble taking stuff down

    i honestly feel mag delcatty typhlosion is a lot safer, i think in general decks are too good to lose to absol now, i've seen countless decks work well with claydoll, from my understanding of absol, it might make the top cut by beating the not so good decks and players, and having decent luck against tier 1 decks and players, but IMO it will lose in swiss eliminations, in almost any metagame, because the stadandard of tier 1 decks has gotten so much higher than at cities, in fact a lot of people thought magsol was never a tier 1 deck, but in some areas a deck like that can be effective, but i think by now almost every area would have caught on,

    if i had to make a fix, i'd say take out potion for some amount of windstorm, if you get beached your finished since the only leg magsol has to stand on energy wise is scramble

    looks solid once it is set up, but it doesn't look like it will set up consistantly: Heavy reliance upon top decks. You need more draw cards, and though I like the healing it is more important to get setup than to take off a few damage counters.

    -3 potion
    +3 draw cards of your choice.

    well mars would help screw up there hand.
    but maybe ur right i think ima play 3 stevens with a pof rowans

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

    u have a really good point but u now what im gona try it. and i can alway pull a cess on them i play three castaways and 2 cess which is just like playing 5 cess. i dont really like any other deck. and im really comfortable playing it so well see. i think two windstorm is enough though.

    im gona take out the mars for 3 stevens and a rowan i think thats more than enough draw power

    The deck need as much draw as it can get, that's why Steven's is > Mars.

    I suggest putting an energy acceleator instead of absol. Someone like blaziken/typlosion/or mabey togeiss.
