    Hey I thought of Dragonite ex combo the other night. This card and the word "playable" usually never belong in the same sentence, but I think this could match the speed and possibly power of many decks out there if used correctly. :
    Pokes: 18
    4 Dunsparce (SS)
    4 Dratini (dragons)
    4 Dragonite ex
    3 Magma's Numel
    3 Magma's Camerupt

    Energy: 18
    8 Lightning
    8 Water
    1 Rainbow
    1 Multi

    4 POR
    4 Rarecandy
    1 Fisherman
    4 Nurse
    2 Strength charm
    3 Pokemon Reversal
    3 Magma Ball
    1 Birch
    2 Warp Point

    Strategy: Get one or two camerupt, one drag ex, and a few energies in your hand by second turn. This makes drag ex quick and 70 a turn for the rest of the game (hopefully) nurse removes the dmg from camerupt every few turns, and also from drag ex when needed. One multi and one rainbow are included on the off-chance you end up needing to fight with camerupt. Strength charm is tEcH for 150 HP monsters.
    I'll take any suggestions; the one thing I have problem with is a Bex getting to my camerupt. Other than that, with the testing I've done so far, the decks works oddly well. :D

    Dragonite ex is better with Swampart/magneton. Use magneton to get energys back from discard and swampart to attach two energys per turn. If you are going to use camerupt atleast add in 2 skitty/2delcatty/4oracles to help setup and for discarding energy to get with camerupt.

    And by the way dragonite ex is playable and it made it in the top 4 at one of the tournaments i was in. You just have to use swampert and magneton with it.

    I tried the swampert idea once, but it was too slow. It got pwned. Also, the idea of this deck is for a quick 2nd turn force. I try not to fumble around with long-term advsntages like delcatty. :p Regardless, thnx. Anymore suggestions?

    it doesnt work hedgie....
    camerupt only takes basic nrg cards from discard and puts it on camerupt along with the damage.

    but i dont think it can work as smooth as u think.

    dragonite's call for power.

    and btw, I said it was fun to play with.. I just didnt have luck with it :x

    possible fixes: fastball (only 2 evolutions.. you want one or the other, id probably run 4 :O)
    kill the str charms, max poke reversals
    -1 POR, -1 nurse, -1 birch, for TV reporter ;D

    Either that or I suck. I thought I made my dragonite ex deck to the best of my ability and it just didnt work out. I was very sad to see such a cool pokemon go to waste T_T

    I ended up blaming dragonite for my failures. Go me :(

    Ok the swampert works a whole lot better than this because even if dragonite ex dies youll still have a backup. Plus this deck will loose later on in the game every game using camerupt but if you use swampert it actually works and you can also use latias ex in this deck.

    newman here, i like your deck idea i was the first at least in my area to give this card a chance when aq ma came out i thought of something very similar to this which i think you might have more fun with i give you props though for using and thinking of something fun different but competitive...ok so here we go.

    4x dratini
    1x dragonair
    3x dragonite EX
    3x Aquas Lanturn
    2x magnemite
    2x magneton

    7x water energy
    7x electric energy
    3x boost energy (i will explain)

    3x oracle
    3x weakness gaurd VERY IMPORTANT unless you areodactyl
    3x juggler
    3x birch
    2x copycat
    2x switch
    1 town volunteers
    3x pokemon nurse
    2x oran berry
    3x archie
    3x rare candy

    play around with this and see what you think, dragonite for resistance to grass and fighting protecting your weakness on lanturn and magneton. magneton for water, along with boost for quick damage or just against water. weakness guard to protect you from crystal shard most decks only run a max of two and colorless pokes etc. magneton to get energy back juggler or just to put right back down on dragonite the next turn. what i like about the deck is you have few basics you garranty your self a dratini or magnemite which you can do quick damage with second turn. most of all though the opportunity to do 70 damage every turn like you were doing with camelrupt. good luck to you in the future.

    p.s. if you dont know me im the one who envented wailord fossils. HA HA HA

    As soon as I saw it I was about to say something just like this.... then I saw Newmans post.... Dropping Swampert line for Aqua Lanturn is defenitely the way to go here... the Boost are greatness here for the 120 daamge attack (even if it is a flip)... now for my rendition....

    3 Sparce
    3 Dratini
    1 Draginair
    2 Drago EX
    1 Drago Exp (free retreat baby!!!!)
    2 Mite
    2 Ton
    2 Skitty
    2 delcatty
    1 M Fossil/Under Sea Fossil (prolly better for Sparce to find)
    1 Aero EX
    2 Aqua Lanturn

    7 Lightning
    7 Water
    2 Boost

    4 Oracle
    3 Copycat/Oak/Shaman (personal preferance)
    3 Rare Candy
    2 Archie
    2 Aqua Hideout (tricky little Drago aint he....)
    1 Town Volunteers
    4 Nurse
    3 Reporter/Juggler

    This is personally closer to what I would play. Aero here for the Shard protection, you only need a 1/1 with Oracle Catty combo. Should recyclye nicely, and Ton can be a big hitter too.... Boost helps everyones attack (cept Lanturn/Sparce) which is nice....

    Yeah, but this could make a nice speed deck although, like many speed decks, it gets fragile if the opponent gets set up.
