    Strategy

    Like Absolutions, there isn't one set path to victory, you play the best you can with your hand and the deck is designed to give lots of options. Ideally, you KO pokémon cleanly and quickly without wasting energy. Weaker attacks for pokémon with lower HP and charge up Latios GE for a big hit. Pretty much anything is a good starter. You can delta draw with Castform after searching out basics or use disable with sableye. As for the Lati@s, you can give them free retreat by searching out and playing latios ex δ. Latias ex δ's poké-power combos with holon circle. You can attach extra energy and not receive an attack every turn you have a cicle (unless they replace the stadium). Scott will get holon circle and tech stadiums. Holon circle also works great with amulet coin: draw the turn that gets 'skipped'. Castaway and roseanne's research get energy from your deck too and you can use castform to return a basic to then be reattached. With Latias ex δ dropping energy all over the place, you can hit with big attacks. Latios GE can even set itself up for attacks if you get the heads on the coin flips.

    I apreciate your feedback but I have my reasons for not implementing them all.

    If Latias is prized, it's prized. Call me a gambler but I just accept odds of 9:1 as no problem. What is so good about Holon Adventurer? If I was going to run 4 draw supporters, considering the high scott/castaway count it would make a lot of sense to play different draw. I could get steven's advice from my deck with castaway when I am playing an opponent who has a big bench and my hand will be <7 when I play it. I could get wager for when I am in an advantageous position but have a lower hand. I could get rowan when I need a fresh hand but want to keep say a supporter for the following turn. TV Reporter for when I want to keep the cards in my hand as they are and draw in addition. Felicity's is nice for big draw when I don't like the hand. All these options are available to choose with scott or castaway (or if I simply have two of what would have been two adventurers) if I run a line like this:

    1 Steven's Advice
    1 Team Galactic's Wager
    1 Professor Rowan
    1 Felicity's Drawing

    Castaway is like an instant pluspower because I can pull strength charm and just because the weaker attacks are there doesn't mean I will be using them. Where in my strategy does it say "Turn one attach an energy, 2 use ice barrier for a measly 30, then do 60 an pluspower for the win11!"? The strategy says it is to play holon circles and get them with scott. That way I only attack when I want to do big damage. It also explains how good amulet coin and holon circle is, so why would I take out amulet coins?

    Rayquaza ex is an interesting option but I don't like it as a starter. Sableye is a nice starter with disable and from then on you can check your topdeck each turn.

    Delta Rainbow Energy?

    Hmmm. I would definetly play that with Rayquaza ex δ. At the moment, Latios ex δ isn't intended to be used as a an attacker and the water energy could be obtained quite easily with Roseanne's or Castaway. δ Rainbow energy doesn't work well with multi either. I need lots of basic energy for Latias ex δ's fellow boost poké-power too. I don't think there's enough δ pokémon at the moment but if any more were added maybe.

    Does anyone think Super scoop up could work nicely here?
