This is a deck that Tyranitar666, and Xeodus have been helping me with. They say~and I agree in full~ the deck doesn't work...yet.

Burning Scythe

Pokemon:17
4-Cyndaquil
4-Quilava
4-Typhlosion
3-Cleffa
2-Rocket's Scyther

Trainers:26
4-Elm
4-Wrath
4-Double Gust
3-Secret Mission
3-Focus Band
3-Gold Berry
2-Time Capsule
2-Energy Stadium
1-Chaos Gym

Energy:17
4-Grass
13-Fire

As you can see, the main idea is to set up, and attack with Typhlo. If I can get 3 down, he is basically an unstoppable force, doing 60-80 a turn, and having them piled with the energy underneath, all of em with 4 energy is great.

The main part~and my fav~ of this deck is Rocket's Scyther. He may look out of place, but being able to whop a atr for 80, and not worrying about having only 3 energy in the discard along witht he addition of shadow images with focus, he is nearly impossible to touch, let alone KO. With the flexibility of only one energy to attack with, I only need 5, maybe even 4 in the deck. He takes away a lot of my worries from gatr, I can hit him for 80, and even if scyther dies, go up and clean with typhlo.

Thanks for your help everyone!

I have not tried this deck so this is off the cuff. You state "the main idea is to set up, and attack with Typhlo". If this is true, dump the RK9 line. You are not playing cinnabar or blaines and it is 2/2 anyways. That frees 1 spot. Drop 1 or 2 fire (you run nrg stadium) and you can add 2 or 3 speed cards like master ball, gaze, secret mission, breeders field, etc.

I may consider it, I dunno, my plans on going to a tourny to test tonight, well didn't happen. I like having the extra power of having an RK9 with 5/6 energy on it, waiting for that gatr to step up. But then again, it isn't NEEDED. I'll consider it, ty.

Sorry about that, seriously though I find it stupid-> why have somone not read an entire post, then change a deck without even knowing the reason a aparticular card is in there? I always read the complete post and most if not all of the all replies before I reply to ANY post. I wish some other people would do that >_<
