    I built this deck after the Dragons prerelease and it is AWSOME!!! It's soooo much fun to play, and I got tired of my old Swampert/Cacturne deck. It runs VERY smoothly and I haven't had any trouble with it so far. Tell me what you think! :thumb:

    -1 Magnemite
    -1 Magneton
    +2 Kecleon

    If you are going with all energy types anyways, use the Rainbow Pokemon as well....

    Change energy to

    6 Electric
    4 Grass
    2 Fire
    2 Water
    2 Psychic
    2 Fighting

    add in Lady Outing too. The holo Flygon can Dance energy like crazy between Vibriva's attack and Lady Outing. Can power up immensely by third turn...

    I don't like Kecleon, too flippy for my taste. I wish I had some Lady Outing though... I changed the energy to your suggestion Spectreon, and it runs alot better! Thanks!

    Yeah, he is flippy, but with almost garunteed 40 a flip, and 80 a flip on double weakness, Flippy is a good thing. I am going to try out a Flygon deck too, which i will post soon, which just happened to include Magneton too.

    With Magneton, do you really need Energy Recycle System? Trade 1 for a second TV, and 1 for another Juggler, which should bring them to 1-1-1, or 3 if you add them together.

    Also, if you have them/when you get them trade Oran Berry for Briney's Compasion. No Pokemon EX means Briney should be in the deck. Much better healing.

    Hey, my friend (dark-sith... he should be signing up for the boards soon) at the Dragon Pre-release built this kind of thing for his sealed, he's been tinkering with it for modified as well. I like his version a bit better than yours, though they use a lot of different things.

    As for a fix on yours... hmm

    Drop a TV...

    Like Spectreon said, you need Lady Outing. With that, Vibrava's attack, and Magneton's power, you can drop like 7 energy down in one turn with an Energy Shower... which is what this deck should try and accomplsih... stuff like that.

    Also, dark-sith plays Tv Reporter in his... I really like it with this instead of Juggler. You can always discard energy with retreating, and other stuff.

    I don't like Dunsparce much, but i guess its not bad.

    Anyway, check out his version, it should be up soon.

    Latios EX maynot be to shaby for this deck. You can shower a bunch of energy, and between its first attack, and Magenton, keep it doing 100 every 2-3 turns once you get rid of all its energy.

    Because he is using it for Muk EX tech. If you dont fear Muk EX, or dont see it palyed in your area, youdont need it. But if it is played, it is nice Tech card.....

    BTW, -1 Dunsparce/Magneton for +1 Latios if you want. Good BBP, and good quick damage with Flygon...

    The whole point of Juggler is to discard energy so I can get it back with Magneton. The net gain with Juggler is higher than TV Reporter. I will be editing the decklist b/c I found my Lady Outing. I tried using Latios ex, but it didn't work out too well... I think I'll try it again with the improved deck. Thanks for the fixes!

    I wouldnt rely on Latios, just have it (1, 2 at most) as a good back up. Can beef it up while you attack with someone else... then let it loose. If it gets more than 1-2 KOes, I would be suprised, but 100 Damage is enough to KO alot of Pokemon!!!!

    I like magneton with delcatty. Discard and nrg for catty, trade a card for nrg with ton. Juggler also combos nicely with tons power.

    Yeah... I like those fixes, but I don't have the cards for either of them...

    I kinda figured, but it is a good reference if/when you do get them, and lets you know what you are keeping an eye out for at least.

    I don't think you should use the multi or Rainbow, they don't add to Flygon's Rainbow burn. Also I would change the Energy Switches to Lady Out Goings. Lady Outgoing along with Vibrava's attack gets you plenty of energies.6 different energies, 6 types of energies with just 2 cards.

    And is there really a lot of Muk EX in your Meta?

    Also I would take out 1 Bill's Maintenance and one TV Reporter for 2 Lannett's Net Search. You could get Trapinch, Latios, and Magnemite.

    Ummm, it's Lady Outing Kyogre... And I only added Multi and Rainbow b/c I added Girafarig, ao now there are 15 pokes that need specific energy. I don't have any more Lady Outing or else I would have already added them. The Energy Switches are handy b/c when a Holo Flygon is about to be KOed I can move atleast 2 of the energy to the new active Pokemon. I know Magneton gets energy back from the discard pile, but with Energy Switch I get to drop them on the new active. Thanks anyway...
