    Strategy:
    What you do is set up Blissey in the Active position and drop a Growlithe on the bench while you load Blissey with energy. Then to take out the big stuff you drop k9 and deliver the mail to the Defending Pokemon.

    Why 2 growlithe?

    ^ Oh yeah..... Growlithe is not an ideal starter in this strategy obviously so I lowered it down to 2 so it has a less chance of being prized and less chance of starting with it. It's only needed to take out the beasts too.

    Well, if you're going to play a 2-4 line, I think you might as well play a 2-2 line or play Time-Space distortion to instantly get back growlithe to have the next arcanine ready. 4 Arcanine leaves alot of dead cards in your hand that could of been used to up consistency. The reason why Houndoom was generally played as a 1-2 is beacause of the prize factor, but one in 2 Arcanine prized doesn't hurt because most likely you'll be getting it before you need it since this deck is built to score quick KO's

    Yes, do think about TSD. In my testing, it's very hard to get the growlithe or arcanine out at the right time when one piece of it is stuck in the discard.

    I don't have TSD but I'll try to get some. The reason for 4 Arcanine though is to have them in hand so I don't have to bother searching for them and instead only worry about Growlithe. But I'll try that.

    - 2 arcanine
    +1 TSD (dreams of having TSD!)
    and another draw card, more draw = more consistancy.

    with the TSD you could drop a Night Maintenance and that frees another slot: Warp Point maybe?

    I'm never very good at the fine details of energy balance so I'd probably start with 3-3 on the boost-DRE, DRE does nothing for blissey.

    I know DRE doesn't help Blissey but it's like gas to the fire for Arcanine and his power.
