    Why don't you just test it?

    Most any deck containing Absol contains Mars.

    There is not one standard list for this deck, but I would encourage AT LEAST a 3/3/3 Empoleon Tower then add 1 LVL X just to increase the pain.

    I am playin
    4 Absol
    3-3-2-2 Empoleon/Lv. X
    1 Suicune
    1 Umbreon*
    4 SSU

    It's really nice actually.
    The Cune is really nice cause you can play 2 Empoleon and be OK since it grabs it back.

    Rambo, if no fish bite your lure, there is no reason to cast again.

    I like Suicune and I ran it in my Empoleon but I really never found a use for it on a consistent basis. I would drop it. Also the 3-3-3 line seems less solid than the Empoleon builds I am used to where the focus is on a 4-4-X line because the Prinplup is very decent. I guess with laying damage counters not being as productive, a cut on Prinplup can occur, but I don't understand the cut on the Piplup. Is it just to increase an Absol start? If so, I don't understand the Suicune and other tech. A suicune start can lose you a game easily (see my CC report! lol).

    i just wanted to know what the point in a deck is if it loses to the top deck(s) in the format. thanks for the insightful reply, prime.

    I see what you're saying but I only play 2 Empoleon.
    I am playin a 3-3-2-2 Empoleon/Lv. X build cause I place a heavy emphasis on the Lv. X w/ Absol, Mars, and TGW. Cune is indeed necessary playing only 2 Empoleon, and 4 SSU along w/ Umbreon* makes it a very efficient and effective card.
    I may bump the line to a
    4-2-2-2 line or a
    4-3-2-2 line just to decrease my chances of starting w/ Cune and Umbreon* though.
