    Hello all. Not sure if anyone is actually out there (looked like I saw some tumbleweeds rolling through as I scanned). I used to come to this site all the time when I was a kid just to talk Pokemon. Many years have passed and I now run a league, but I'm a total amateur at best. I could use some help with my current deck! It feels a little too sluggish.

    I created this deck to try to counter things like Night March decks by shutting down Item cards with Noivern GX. Problem is, I rarely seem to be able to get Noivern out fast enough to achieve said goal. I would really like to get better with deck strategy so I can coach our league kids on building better decks.

    Here's what I'm running right now:

    Eevee (w/ Energy Evolution) x4
    Umbreon GX x1
    Espeon GX x2
    Noibat x4
    Noivern GX x3
    Hoopa x3
    Darkrai (Prism Star) x1

    Evosoda x2
    Great Ball x2
    Professor's Letter x3
    Mysterious Treasure x3
    Devoured Field x1
    Hex Maniac x2
    Skyla x2
    Cynthia x3
    Ninja Boy x1
    Acerola x2
    Teammates x1
    Wally x1
    Wishful Baton x1
    Muscle Band x2
    Bodybuilding Dumbbells x1
    Choice Band x1

    Double Colorless Energy x2
    Dark Energy x7
    Psychic Energy x5

    I'm thinking of removing Darkrai, upping my Wallys and Ninja Boys, and removing the Mysterious Treasures. In retrospect, they probably don't do me much good.

    Knowing that the strategy is to shut down Item cards to prevent the opponent from getting up and running quickly, thoughts on ways to improve here? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hiya EG, we had a problem and a number of us couldn`t see this forum for some reason. That`s all fixed just now and the spam cleaned up so hopefully someone can come by and give you advice!

    Noivern is a novel item lock strategy. You seem a little light on draw power. Maybe the problem is getting to your Wally and Ninja Boys and other cards rather than their count. Maybe a single Hoopa & no Darkrai in favor of 3 more draw supporters?
