Updated hippowdon/ ninetales deck
Gentlemen, let's broaden our minds.
2-2 Ninetales (pl 102-hs 7)
4 Sableye sf
1 Unown q
1 Lux Ball
2 Warp Point
My absolute pride and joy. The idea is to preferably start with sableye (hippopotas or vulpix are ok too) and impersonate an engineer's for good early draw.
Hippos and Ninetales are the main stars and Roast Reveal provides awesome draw when paired with engineer's. I look forward to facing SP with this, I don't know why. I'm not gonna change the energy amount to less because then the draw engine will run out of fuel a lot quicker than it's supposed to.
I don't really care much about Sand Reset- will definitely be sprayed, and I have to time it VERY carefully. I also found (thanks to NathWalt) that Spiritomb is NOT a good starter for this deck. This deck relies on speed and excellent draw, and Mr Tomb does none of that. Only 1 uxie is needed, as my hand looks to be massive most of the time (well, more than 7 cards anyway).
If anything, I'd like to maybe add another bts, possibly for 1 bebe's.
Please lend me your suggestions :D Also, by all means try it out on Redshark to get a feel of what I'm rambling on about :D
