    so guys,i was searching through scans yesterday, and i found armaldo d.
    i read its first attack and say"meh,you always need to use supporters".
    but then i thought of porygon2.
    use supporters,while not having them in play.
    so yea, i think this could be a preety good idea, i just need your opinions on it.

    heres a decklist ive been testing with.


    3 porygon GE
    3 porygon 2 GE
    2 porygon Z
    4 claw fossil
    2 anorith PK
    3 armaldo d
    1 minun SW
    3 phione GE


    1 lake boundary
    4 fossil excavator
    4 island hermit
    2 proffsor birch
    2 scott
    4 great ball
    3 rare candy
    2 warp point
    2 night maitnenance


    6 fighting energy
    2 cyclone energy
    4 special metal
    3 scramble energy


    anyways, the main strat is to spread early on with armaldo/discarding claw fossils.
    then use fossil excavator's to get em back.
    late game,everything should be in your 1hko range,so smack em for 70 for 2 and 1hko them.
    porygon2 just helps you setup/do multiple things at once while also letting younuse a suporter for your turn and smack em for 70.

    any thoughts on the idea??
    thanks for reading guys.

    Wait, is that card like the Armaldo from Sandstorm? If so, I thought this card would NEVER see play. I mean, the only thing that isn't a Supporter-Engine is the Fishing Engine. But STILL, what deck dosen't play Ceilio's?

    Anyway, great idea. Love it. Hope it does well.

    Good luck with it.

    but, no,its not like armaldo sandstorm.
    its first attack says"if you have a supporter card in play,this attack does 20 damage instead of 70."

    something to that extent.

    Oh, okay! Still like the deck! Might make it myself when GE comes out.

    EDIT: Oh right! Now I remember the card! Problem is... I only have a fake of it...:nonono:

    yea,the best thing i like about armaldo is its weakness.
    grass really isnt popular at all.
    and 110 hp to add to that.
    not bad,not bad at all.

    Actually the Fishing Engine wouldn't be the right way to go with this.. can't believe I just said that. Porygon 2 should be stackable so you can use Multiple Supporters per turn (the wording is similar to Delcatty) and with discarding the supporters, it just makes it run more smoothly!

    GAG will have a field day with you, but I think that trimming down on some of your supporters would be fine!!


    4 fossil excavator
    4 Island Hermit
    4 Team Galactic Mars
    2 copycat
    2 scott
    4 Great Ball
    3 rare candy
    2 warp point

    just for starters! You can Great Ball out a Porygon and then Phione can evo it!! The P2 needs to be out T2 if at all possible. If you have 2 of them on your bench, you can do 2 Mars and get rid of 2 cards from there hand! and still play a normal Supporter for the turn if not using Armaldo's first attack! INteresting idea and I like it!!

    Might think of taking the Pory t oa 3-3 and adding in 2 Pachirisu os if you get the Pachi Start, you can get 2 Pory and 1 Phione!

    Hope it works for you!!

    Odds are Pacharisu isn't coming out but I like the idea Meches (as usual...).

    i like the idea mr.meches.
    but the problem with mars is when gardevoir uses it,it also hurts you.
    i LOVE the hermit idea.
    im editing the list now.

    most likely phione WILL be in GE and pachirisu will not.

    DP4 was supposed to improve the format into something skillful and creative. Unfortunately we are losing all the best cards that could be coming. =\

    they have to come out eventually. maybe they didnt want such big format changes right before states

    hello gardevoir, still want to play?

    doesn't this also impact regionals? I don't think we'll get another set between states and regionals... very disappointing
