    Hey everyone,

    This is a pretty plain Scizor Prime deck. I've done a little research and looked into what others are testing and considering for it. I've seen Steelix and Scizor suggested, Scizor and Flygon, Scizor and Nidoqueen, etc. I quite liked Darkrai079's suggestion of Metagross and Scizor as well.

    4 Scyther PL 130
    3 Scizor UD 84
    1 Scizor MD 29
    4 Skarmory UD 21
    2 Uxie LA 43
    1 Azelf LA 19
    1 Chatot MD 55
    1 Doduo SV 102
    1 Dodrio UD 11

    4 Bebe's Search
    3 Pokemon Collector
    3 Looker's Investigation
    3 Conductive Quarry
    2 Lucian's Assignment
    1 Luxury Ball
    3 Expert Belt
    1 Palmer's Contribution
    4 Energy Exchanger
    4 Super Scoop Up
    2 Warp Point

    8 Metal Energy (Basic)
    4 Metal Energy (Special)

    Strategy: It's the classic Scizor Prime setup; hopefully I open with Skarmory and use Skarmory's "Steel Coat" attack to begin building Scizor Prime on the bench for an early-to-mid-game sweep with "Metal Scissors".

    Techs: Dodrio's Poke-Body offers retreat reduced by :colorless::colorless:, Chatot is there to help me get out of a bad hand, Scizor MD is an alternate attacker that punishes other Pokemon for the usage of Special Energy cards, Looker's Investigation is simply my personal preference for a shuffle-and-draw supporter (I get to look at their hand at the price of one less card than I would get for Professor Oak's New Theory and possibly disrupt them along the way), and everything else seems more or less self-explanatory.

    I won't claim to know anything about the deck-- I'm more of a stage two player (last season was predominately CurseGar, and before that it was Gardevoir/Gallade and then later Machamp for me) so I'm kind of going into this blind. Any suggestions and constructive criticism are very, very welcome.

    conductive quarry and ssu are gross. flips are bad dude

    4 energy exchanger is too much. 3 is plenty

    3 belt seems like 1 too many also

    I agree, I'm not big on flips. Suggestions on what to add in?

    I suggest +4 reversal (it's flippy yes, but it's always good in a deck like this).
    You need a counter to Dialga G. Reversal it's also a good card against him. Then if you find a space for a tech fire..

    SSU's are really good, why would you take them out?

    because 50% of the time they are a wasted card?
