After discussing rouge decks and anti-meta game decks with mca3, he gave me an awesome idea that counters the current archtype: Magmorter and Gardilade.


Pokemon: 18

3-3 Garidos (Counters mag, and requires GG to flip almost all there prizes.)
3-3 mismagmus (Can possibly one hit garidvoir or gallade, and is great against blissy, magmorter, etc..)
4 absol (Destorys hands, and immensly slows down GG, and a ton of other decks too.)
1-1 Xatu/TecH (Depending where you live, you can tech cards to counter the decks that are most commonly played around your area, mawile Ge for GG, Sableye Cg for blissy, etc...)

Trainers: 25

4 Celios network
3 Roseanne's Research
3 Team Galactic's Wager
3 Team Galactic's Mars
3 Lake Boundry
2 Steven's Advice
2 Night Maintanence
2 Warp Point
1 Scott
1 Time Space Distortion
1 Battle Frontier

Energy: 17

4 Double Rainbow
2 Scramble
6 Psychic
5 Water


Strategy: The strategy of this deck is to start out with absol, destroy there hand while setting up either a mismagmus or garidos, (depending on what your playing, gg, mag, etc..) Then basicly retreat absol, play down a lake boundry and start one hitting there pokemons! Gardidos is great for hand distruction, and the xatu is a tech for his confusion, or for sniping benched pokemon! Let me know what you guys think! Comments and suggestion always welcome.

Thanks to mca3 for giving me some of the idea.

Use Grumpig instead of mismagius. It has a -30 body to fire, so then you can survive mag hitting the bench.

Then again, Grumpig is weak x2 to Gardy, which is its primary target.

True. Very true.

flygon999, Thanks for the suggestion but I think Mismagmus would work better in here because not only does it serve the purpose of killing G&G it helps against blissy, and magmorter also.

Pajamas, Thank you for elaborating on Grumpig more!

Overall, I thought for the 1-1 tech spot it could be a 1-1 line of dugtrio Cg If a lot of people in your area play magmorter, even in that case you could boost the garidos line to 4-4 and make mismagmus 2-2, (Vice-Versa, if GG is over played in your area.)

NICE JOB, with deck, PRIZE CARD!!! It looks better than I though, not too Shabby!!! That deck list looks SO good. IF I had to change anything, it would be the TSD for another Battle Frontier, but most BlazeMag decks are running Claydol anyway, I LOVE IT!!! When we were talking about it, I didnt even think it would turn out this good, GOOD LUCK with it, ttyl!!!!

Blooddraek, It's cool that you made a deck similar, but I don't like duskinoir. It does have a nifty power, but your opponents can play around it, and it can't take advantage of Gardivoir or Gallades weakness.

Mca3, thanks for the comment!

uuum why dont u use WP?? you stop sonic blade so they are forced to flip prizes to kill you. and free retreat also helps

silenth, Thanks for the comment! You should probaly play that dugtrio if magmorter is played a lot in your area.

Anyone else, more suggestions or comments?
