Well, long sotry short, this is what I can make with recent cards that can be a "long term" deck. Water Wyrm Pokemon x 19 Dunsparce (SS) x 3 Eevee (SS) x 4 Onix (SS) x 4 Steelix (SS) x 3 Vaporeon (SS) x 3 Wobbuffet (SS) x 2 Trainers x 21 Copycat x 4 Lum Berry x 3 Mirage Stadium x 2 Moo-Moo Milk x 2 Power Charge x 2 Professor Oak's Research x 4 Town Volunteers x 1 Warp Point x 3 Energy x 20 Fighting Energy x 4 Metal Energy x 4 Psychic Energy x 3 Rainbow Energy x 4 Water Energy x 4 Warp Energy x 1 Most of this is based on what I have or can easily get. Steelix is a power house unless it faces water: Rage can just be sick. Spinning Tail is good while you let the damage pile on, even though it costs more than Rage. Vaporeon has powerful, inexpensive attacks, and can be searched out by Eevee. Ffet handles nasty Psychics and exers. Dunsparce lets me get a bunch of basics, then make them active. This is important becuase I use Mirage Stadium so my opponent cannot hit and run steelix to death. As I said at the beginning, most cards in here are the ones I was able to get (or can get rally easily). Eventually, I probably would drop the Ffets for an Espeon (SS) or two, since it is fairly effective against most commonly played Pokemon ex. Thanks for your time. Edit: I forgot to mention this, but I am looking for what I need to trade for that I could improve the deck with, even if it's a bit harder to get. The catch is it should be "long term" thinking, that is, avoiding E1-3 as their time is limited. For example, most Pokemon ex that are out can't go toe-to-toe with a Steelix, save for Magmar and Typhlosion ex (which is covered by Vaporeon), and Gardevoir and Mewtwo ex. As such, I was thinking of dropping Wobbuffet and adding in one or two Sandstorm Espeons. That is one reason why Dunsparce was in the deck (that and I can use its attack to get an Onix then swap out with said Onix). I'd drop a Vaporeon then, but two should be sufficient.
