    Two types ... very few Trainers ... two Stage 2's ... high Energy count ... This one just won't do. Focus! Choose one Stage 2 line, and work around it.

    2 Poliwhirl
    3 Politoad
    4 Slugma
    3 Macargo
    2 clefa

    trainers
    3 bill
    3 prof elm
    3 breeders
    3 focus band
    2 copy cat
    2 fisherman
    2 oracle
    3 switch

    NRG

    10 fire
    10water

    Pokekid's idea works, although I might even drop 1-2 each of the Basic Energies from that, probably for Gold Berries and/or Double Gusts.

    -3 Poliwag
    -3 Poliwhirl
    -2 Politoed
    -1 Shining Gyarados (just not practical)
    -1 Cleffa
    -1 Gold Berry
    -1 Berry
    -1 Hyper Potion
    -1 Bill
    -1 Oracle
    -5 Fire Energy
    -4 Water Energy

    +3 Carvahna
    +2 Sharpedo
    +3 Moo-Moo Milk
    +3 Energy Stadium
    +2 Town Volunteers
    +2 Copycat
    +2 Town Volunteers
    +4 Darkness Energy
    +3 Energy Charge

    Gold Berry's unreliable at best, Berry has cards better than it, and Hyper Potion appears to be a poor substitute for Super Potion (though it does find itself handy in Modified Electrike or Mewtwo EX decks). The Bill-Oracle combo doesn't work with just one of each. Having two Stage 2 lines, while good in some decks, isn't in others. Also, too much Energy.

    Sharpedo can do up to 70 damage for {W}{D}{C} (the {D} is the optional discard, and is written as {C} in the Energy cost, meaning you don't need it to attack), and hurts the opponent whenever he or she attacks. Moo-Moo Milk is the reliable Modified healing card. Energy Stadium returns your basic Energy easily, and I added more of both Copycat and Town Volunteers for efficiency. The Energy Charge can return Darkness Energy into the deck for Sharpedo to use again.

    Not this again, Carrington. Gold Berry is far better than Moo-Moo Milk! Other than that and Cleffa, though, your suggestions do make a good deal of sense.

    replay to pikachu99
    Yo you need a full-proof way to draw cards.
    How about 4 Bills?
    4 Professer Oak

    BTW: your creatures/pokemon don't look to powerful...
    What do you do about decks with 4 Energy Removals?
    Or Dragonair with Hyperbeam?
    Or even Golduck with Hyperbeam?
    to a Koga's Muk

    What if your opponent plays Gooping Gas?(to kill off all the babys)

    Dragonair, Golduck, and Koga's Muk are all rogue decks -- not to mention, illegal in Modified. This is a Modified deck.

    Other than the singles in the Trainer engine (which I think should become something like 3 Gold Berries, 2 Focus Bands and 2 Double Gusts), it's looking a lot better.

    Take out the fire. If your so scared of Electric Pokemon, keep the Destiny 'Wag line. But if you want splashy-splashy, you have to play with the Skyridge 'Wag line. Skyridge 'Whirl very splashy.

    Take out Breeder Fields, and Bounce Energy. Throw in some Traders, Breeder, and some Warp Energy. Here's my 'Toed Deck. It's WOTC Modified though:

    Energy:
    19 Water
    2 Warp Energy

    Trainers:
    3 Double Gust
    3 Professor Elm (Reverse Holo Promo)
    3 Oracle
    2 Pokemon Breeder
    2 Pokemon Trader
    2 Fisherman
    2 Town Volunteers
    2 Gold Berry

    Pokemon
    2 Neo Genesis Cleffa
    2 Promo Cleffa
    2 Neo Destiny Tyrogue
    2 Neo Genesis Pichu
    3 Skyridge Poliwag
    3 Skyridge Poliwhirl
    3 Skyridge Politoed
    3 Fossil Articuno

    Maybe this'll help.
