    I've made two varients, which are quite different from each other. One has a lot of techs, the other is a much more straightforward build.

    And so, into the breach, with the teched version.

    3 Pachirisu GE
    4 Ralts POP 7/SW
    2 Kirlia SW
    3 Gallade SW
    2 Gardevoir SW
    1 Gardevoir Lvl. X
    1 Baltoy GE
    1 Claydol GE
    1 Duskull GE
    1 Dusknoir DP
    1 Magikarp MT
    1 Gyarados MT

    4 Celio's Network
    2 Prof. Oak's Visit
    1 Copycat
    2 Roseanne's Research
    2 Team Galactic's Wager
    2 Team Galactic's Mars
    1 Night Maintenance
    4 Rare Candy
    2 Windstorm
    2 Warp Point
    1 Premier Ball
    1 Moonlight Stadium

    4 Double Rainbow Energy
    3 Scramble Energy
    2 Multi Energy
    4 Psychic Energy
    2 Fighting Energy

    I've gone with Pachi so that I can see what I'm up against and get out the appropriate techs and Ralts, etc. If I'm up against Magmortar, Gyarados will see play, as will Dusknoir (particularly for Magkiss varients, allowing me to put a recently Serene Grace'd Magmortar back). Claydol is for when I'll be going through a relatively slower set-up, also for mirror matches. Gyarados is pretty handy at mirrors, as either they'll have to flip a load of prizes or 2HKO me, allowing me to hit them very hard for one energy midway through. I might take out Moonlight Stadium for Lake Boundary, for the mirror and Magmortar. I'm not terribly sure how good my energy lines are.

    And here's the version which isn't teched quite so much:

    4 Absol SW
    4 Ralts Pop 7/SW
    2 Kirlia SW
    3 Gallade SW
    2 Gardevoir SW
    1 Gardevoir Lvl. X
    1 Baltoy GE
    1 Claydol GE

    4 Celio's Network
    3 Prof. Oak's Visit
    2 Copycat
    2 Roseanne's Research
    2 Team Galactic's Wager
    2 Team Galactic's Mars
    1 Night Maintenance
    4 Rare Candy
    3 Windstorm
    2 Warp Point
    1 Premier Ball
    1 Moonlight Stadium

    4 Double Rainbow Energy
    4 Scramble Energy
    2 Multi Energy
    4 Psychic Energy
    2 Fighting Energy

    Much simpler, a pure GG for Ploxing and Cutting. Nom nom nom.

    So, Lake Boundary? Gardevoir PK? Dusknoir but not Gyarados (and vice versa)? I just don't know. I shall flail here until I get some replies.

    I like the first deck, but -2 TGM and +1 POV and +1 Steven's Advice.

    Tentacruel13: thanks, I'll try that today.
    charchar: yeah, I do have a problem with speed. I don't have any Furrets (only got back into the game three weeks ago) and I don't actually have a second Claydol but I'll play about with a proxy. Thanks.

    I don't actually think having something prized in GG is that big a problem as you see your prizes after a while and can choose the card you're missing. It's a smaller problem than in most decks, anyway. Still, I'll take all these things into consideration and I'm off for a day of playtesting now. Cheers.

    No, I went to meet a mate in a cafe.
    But it didn't really work out because the underground network was being crap. :( Stupid Transport for London.

    So, anyone else got anything to add?
