I am trying to build a deck just to play with my friends. i used to collect pokemon cards a few years ago. i only collected, but not play with the cards. Now i am trying to make a deck that is fairly budget. I have 2 slowking HGSS with the ability to rearrange the top 3 cards of either your deck or your opponents deck. So i have been trying Gengar AR (the one with curse ability) and Spiritomb AR (trainer lock) with Slowking HGSS. However, i find it hard to set up since Gengar is a stage 2 pokemon and it isnt as beefy as recent EX/GXs. I have thought about Seismitoad EX, but it is too expensive. And so i decided to try Noivern GX, whose attacks have both Item lock and Special Energy Lock, as well as a decent GX attack. So here's my decklist: Pokemon (14) 4x Noibat BUS 4x Noivern GX BUS 2x Slowbro Undaunted 2x Slowking HGSS 1x Misdreavus Platinum 1x Mismagius Undaunted Supporters (11) 2x Professor Juniper 3x Professor Oak's New Theory 2x Wally 2x Brigette 1x Ghetsis 1x Seeker Items (17) 2x Evosoda 4x Ultra Ball 3x Choice Band 1x Switch 1x Escape Rope 3x Pokemon Communication 1x Special Charge 1x Startling Megaphone 1x Sacred Ash 1x Computer Search Energy (10) 4x Double Dragon Energy 4x Dark Energy 2x Psychic Energy 53 cards. 7 spaces. The main strategy is to try to get Noivern GX out ASAP with a DDE to start Item locking. I really love Slowking's ability to rearrange the top 3 cards of your opponent's deck, and disrupt him. I run Mismagius Undaunted as a tech for her Poltergeist attack, which allows me to look at my opponent's hand and do 30 damage for each trainer, item, supporter, or stadium card he has. Under item lock, my opponent wouldn't be able to play his items, so this attack can easily be powered up. For the spaces, I may tech in 1-1 trashalanche Garbodor, crushing and enhanced hammers. Some questions: 1. Should i run Seeker or Acerola or AZ. I feel that Seeker is best as you can make your opponent put a evolution card back into his hand and he would have to waste a few turns to evolve again. 2. Should I run Noivern GX/Garbodor (ability lock) instead of Noivern GX/Slowking? I really love Slowking's ability though, as you can rearrange the top 3 cards of your opponent's deck AS WELL AS your own, helping you to get the cards you need. 3. Any other important items/ supporters i left out? if not, i would go 4 crushing hammer, 2 Enhanced Hammer, and maybe 1/2 Team Flare Grunt.
