    Sadly none of them have played against this deck...

    ok the deck has merit but, you definitely need a cpl of things..

    Rare Candy a must.... and if you are not using Dragon Mareep.. you should... 50 hp helps

    Run a 3-2-3 Amphy line... and toss in an Amphy Ex.... trust me it becomes helpful

    Next on the Lords... 3 WEX and 2 Lords..... Surf can be devasting

    And also for the Linnoone line... it os ok, but Aq Espy works well in here, this is why:

    If you have 3 Warp nrg and an espy on the Bench... dont have to worry about SDD to get WEX out of there... this is important!!

    You can Warp, NRG connect to an undamaged WEX and pick warp back then Nurse the Benched wex..

    Rinse and repeat do to the warp in y our hand... if you need to draw, warp first then use your POR, get new hand then nrg return the warp... keeps it readily available.. I tended to keep mine down on WEX until he was going to be koed....
    Good Luck!! Hope I helped...

    I don't think there is a need for Rare Candy in this deck. You only have one Stage-2 so there is no space saving and you are unlikely to need the power of Ampharos in the first couple of rounds where there is so little energy to move. Not being able to get Ampharos in the same round as you plat Mareep could hurt you against Blaziken EX where he can knock out Mareep or Flaafy, but this is unlikely to be an issue since he has to go for the water Pokemon.

    Playing Flaafy makes it simpler to play Flaafy and Ampharos on either side of on Oak or Copycat, you can search for Flaafy with PETM and you are not vulnerable to Omastar.

    I would make some other changes to the deck, but you didn't ask for that.

    Grandma and Pokey: The poster didn't ask you to comment on his deck, he didn't even ask you to fix it. He just wanted to know whether he should play Rare Candy. If you want to advise him to drop the deck idea you should as an absolute minimum give him a thorough analysis of why the deck would not work.

    +1 rare candy

    for the rest of you immature little kids replying to these posts, could you mind just sharing your "deck fix" ideas instead of saying crap like "it wont work." He OBV didn't ask if his deck dominates or not, he asked for a fix.

    In follow up to my previous post lol
    Well the deck doesnt have much speed and attack/back up
    And the key in modified is if you get a blaze ex up first in theory you win. 9/10 matches, if u get blaze ex up first, you'll win. This has been tested and can be scientifically proven. Wailord ex can not beat blaziken ex. end of story.
    and if you beg to differ take up an apprentice game with me anytime... ill gladly proove my point


    Just play this

    Pokes-21
    2 RayquazaEX
    2 Blaziken EX

    i dont want to bust your bubble but yes it can if you have wailord ex and a amph on the bench(energy connect) there are 2 choices attack the amphy or the wailord but no matter what the wailord will attack becuase you could have another one on the bench or you have a nurse in your hand.

    Ya but im talking about a bench that can pose a threat, with bex or even niniken, you can have options that are playable in rayquaza, ninetales, blaze, bex

    with that its just amphy and wailord and they cant do a whole lot of damage... at least not as much as ray or 9tales or bex

    So...did you two play on apprentice yet?? I would like to hear the outcome. I watched the Wailord deck in action and it's pretty darn good. To be honest I have yet to see a Blaze deck in the 11-14 age group place here in California. Maybe I just missed it.
