    The point of this deck is to start with Absol, and start damaging the bench. I then use Yanmega to attack while Chandelure is there to set up k.os. Zoroark is there to counter reshiram/zekrom/rdl/badboar.

    Pokemon
    3 Absol Prime
    4-4 Yanmega
    3-2-3 Chandelure
    2-2 Zoroark
    1 Tyrogue
    1 Cleffa

    I/S/S
    4 Collector
    4 Judge
    3 Copycat
    2 Juniper
    3 Junk Arm
    3 Communication
    2 Great Ball
    3 Catcher
    3 Switch

    Energy
    4 DCE
    4 Rescue

    I like this deck! I'm building one very similar for my gf. This is what I would recommend:

    Pokemon (19)
    4 Absol Prime
    2-2 Yanmega
    2-1-2 Chandelure
    2-2 Zoroark
    1 Tyrogue
    1 Cleffa

    I/S/S (29)
    4 Collector
    4 Judge
    4 Copycat
    3 Rare Candy
    3 Communication
    3 Junk Arm
    3 Twins
    3 Catcher
    3 Switch

    Energy (12)
    4 Psychic
    3 Grass
    2 DCE
    3 Rescue

    If you want to start with Absol, you need to be sure you max him out. Having fewer pokemon increases the chances of A) drawing him first hand or B) if no basics, drawing him after you mulligan. Chandelure is awesome, but the power is only good if he's you active, so alternating him with Yanmega every other turn would be the most effective. Then switching Zoroak in every-so-often on catcher-ed dragons for the KO.

    Even if you don't use it, it's nice to have back-up energy in case you're forced to attack. I'm always the one who gets energy screwed, so I find running 1 or 2 more energy than normal can be very helpful.

    Rare candy is there to quickly get chandlure out and twins is a staple in this type of deck (or any deck utilizing absol) If absol is starting, plan on using him as a punching bag while you evolve/power up your bench. Using twins with this can be very effective when you need that evolution card the turn after it's KO.

    I hope all that made sense! ^_^

    The ONLY way Chandulure makes sense to play is with Jirachi. Yanmega helps that idea even more, and also doesnt require a differing energy type. Absol doesnt do as much here as one might hope, because it's useless if they pichu/collector before you have absol/cant get ti soon/can't bounce to it and cant retreat it easily.

    The deck concept is nice though, it just needs jirachi support and Zoarark works as an attacker against dragons.

    with out plus power, zoroark isn't much of a counter to the dragons. i would suggest trying to fit it in

    In Reshiphlosion Reshiram usually has 1 damage on itself, and zekrom hurts itself when it attacks. No need for pluspower.

    Eviolite says "hi"

    Without plus power, Chandulure llows for the 1HKO of any dragon, or, in absence of evolite, allows you to set up a ko on multiple ones at the same time.

    So yeah. No need for PP. Just more switch/setup cards.

    dodrio maybe? allows free retreat on absol and chandulure.
     
  9. Pokemon:
    4-3-4 Chandalure
    2-1-2 Kingdra Prime
    2-2 Dodrio
    1-1 Blissey Prime
    1 Jirachi

    This with 3 Switch-4 Junk Arm, and alot of disruption(Crushing Hammers, Judges, N's, stuff like that) and this deck is realllly fun and really competitive.
