    This may have been posted before but I was wondering if anyone could help me with this deck. I plan on building it regardless as it's really fun, but any suggestions on helping it win would be greatly appreciated. Basically, while dratini (d) is a bad starter with only 40 HP (but no weakness), dragonite d EX's 2 energy attack works really well with Ampharos' poke-power (in theory). And I think having furrets is always something I will have in my deck.
    Here's some quick links for reference:
    Dragonite (d) EX
    Ampharos SW
    Furret SW

    The format of the redshark list is like this:
    number in deck, name, type (Pokemon, Trainer, Energy), then set-number

    4, Mareep, P, SW-94
    2, Flaaffy, P, SW-50
    3, Ampharos, P, SW-1
    4, Dratini (d), P, DF-46
    2, Dragonair (d), P, DF-28
    3, Dragonite ex (d), P, DF-91
    3, Sentret, P, SW-104
    3, Furret, P, SW-27
    2, Professor Rowan, T, DP-112
    4, Bebe's Search, T, SW-119
    3, Roseanne's Research, T, SW-125
    4, Rare Candy, T, HP-90
    2, Team Galactic's Mars, T, SW-126
    3, Buffer Piece, T, DF-72
    3, Holon Mentor, T, DF-75
    4, Multi Energy, E, HP-96
    5, Lightning Energy, E, DP-126
    6, Grass Energy, E, DP-123

    As far as the Pokemon go, Dragonite d EX and Ampharos seem to work well together theoretically. I also considered instead of the Dragonite line using Shiftry EX CG to harm pokemon using their pokepowers instead. I'm not sure. Either way, Furret is in there because: 1. Sentret is a decent starter. 60 hp, weakness to fighting but it's a straight +10, and his 1 energy attack is look at the top 2 cards of your deck, choose 1, then put the other on the bottom. 2. Furret is all kinds of awesome. His energyless attack lets you get ANY 2 cards you want. Read that..... rare candy + stage 2 pokemon, or just get whatever you're missing. His second attack isn't bad either, 40 damage for 2 energies and you have the OPTION of not only retreating Furret after you attack, but you can also move all, some, or none of his energies to the new active Pokemon. If you can't tell, I love Furret. So... that's basically my reasoning. Any help would be appreciated :)

    In theory, yeah, that should work, because you'll shut down all their trainers and they'll have no choice but to use their trainers, and with Jamming adding up, you can easily knock out two or three Pokemon a turn with Draggy's second attack.

    why play 4-2-3 lines? play 3-2-3 or 4-2-4.
    after 7-10
    before 6.5-10

    I play them because I was actually having serious problems with mulligans. Before when I only had two 4-2-3 lines (dragonite and ampharos) I would get sometimes up to SEVEN mulligans in a row. only 8 basics in a deck. after adding furret, it got better adding +3 more basics, however taking away two wouldn't help much overall with this problem.

    There is no draw in this deck. This format is dominated by discarding. I would suggest finding room for Professor Birch.

    Actually there are 2 Galactic Mars, but I see where you're coming from. Problem is, a lot of people play Speed Stadium where I come from so my hand is generally pretty close to 6 cards if not sometimes well over that many. But I agree that it needs more draw, maybe adding more Galactic Mars or perhaps some Professor Oak's Visit or Professor Oak's Research?

    Try Absol, with all that rose/mentor and multi he'll help in many ways.

    The REAL trainer lock deck will come out with DP4.

    Untill then this looks pretty good.

    Great idea. The hard part will be getting out two stage 2s and actually powering them up to attack in a format laden with hyper-aggressive stage 1 decks.

    No. :wink:

    I'll give you a hint.

    It locks trainers and spreads damage.
