    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Here's the list:


    4-Celio's Network
    4-Quick Ball
    3-Roseanne's Research
    3-Cessation Crystal
    2-Strength Charm
    4-Plus Power
    3-Crystal Beach
    1-Island Hermit
    2-Warp Point
    3-Time-Space Distortion
    2-Night Maintenance
    3-Potion(people have been playing it in my area, and it has been working)
    2-Buffer Piece


    Strategy: Aiight, last time I posted a deck ryanvergal locked it because of an insufficient strategy. So let's see what I can come up with this time. Start with Kricketot and Call For Family. Get a Kricketune up Turn 2 and start pounding them for hopefully 70-ish per turn. The Island Hermit is to flip the 4th Kricketot. Time-Space so I can repeatedly Bench Knocked Out Kricketot, and Maintenance is for recycling Energy, which the deck is kind of low on. Roseanne's and Castaway both get Energy, so I think that'll be fine. Warp Point wins games. Plus Power/Strength Charm enable you to OHKO those 80-100 HP Pokemon. Crystal Beach wrecks a lot of decks, and Scott searches them out. Copycat is for draw, and many decks often have a 10+cards in their hand. Celio's and Quick Ball get the crickets, with Potion and Buffer Piece keeping them concious. There you go Ryan, how's that?

    How do you edit the title?

    The point of the deck is no DRE. The chances of my opponent Turn 2-ing me are too slim for DRE. Kricketot have 60HP and Kricketune's Attacks only require 2 Energy. Besides, I'd need 3-4 DRE to have a chance of getting one T2, and that just isn't worth it.

    Like I said in the strategy, Castaway and Roseanne's get Energy. I don't think that'll be a problem.

    I wouldn't use this deck if I where you.

    I went 1-4 because it just isn't consistant enough, even WITH TSD.

    You always bring all of your cards with you, right? Because I need a few to complete the deck.

    What do you need?

    I think you should put in more energy. You don't always want to use your Supporter on energy. Aside from that, this actually looks good for Kricketune.:thumb: (And not trying to be rude, but you typed trianers instead of trainers, and thier instead of their.)

    Normal edit, then click "Go advanced" I think.

    I have the bugs, Roseanne's Research, and Scott.

    and if you go first and you have no energy only 1 out a 6 chance you going to have an energy add like 4 more or 3 more or something
    and if you start with wooper theres a greater chance of you not your opponent being t2ed

    If you draw 1 card you have a 1 out of 6 chance of it being an Energy. There's 7 in an opening hand. The chances are way higher than that. More Energy wouldn't help the lone Wooper start.

    and theres a good chance like 20 perscent chance and its then like 15 percent of you having an energy t1
  12. Fox McCloud

    It's above 50%.
  13. empoleonperson

    actually do 8 cards divided by 60 cards and you
    get .13 repeating

    Every time you draw 6 cards you're drawing one-sixth of the deck. Grass Energy makes up one-sixth of the deck. Then, when you add in the other two cards chances go above 50%.

    I went on Redshark and did 10 practice draws, including the T1 Draw. These were my results:


    I did it again

    Plug in 10 for good starting pokemon (grass energy) and you'll get rougly 25% hands of mulligan-or no grass energy.

    So about 75% of your games you'll start your hand with a grass energy.

    If you include castaway/roseannes for having an energy by T2 then you drop your energyless starts down to lower than 10%

    I personally think DRE is a must. Once a magmortar comes up and obliterates a few kricketunes in a row (2-3) and you try to recover with TSD and NM you're going to be so energy dry you won't be able to come back.

    I have cc, scott and tune.
    sry but I can't lend out my tsd.

    It T2, T2 tune all the time. I just go first flip heads with wild kick and... tada death(I mean KO). Or warp point. Or I use strength charm + Plus power aura sphere KO. Testing against tune it works much better with DRE.

    I changed some stuff. The Quagsire wasn't helping, probably because there are 4 Cess Crystals. Don't you guys think Crystal Beach would hurt my opponent more than DRE would help me? Every deck in the format heavily relies on DRE or Boost. This deck still functions pretty well without them.
