    I see so often that cards are being rated 1/10, 0/10 for unlimited decks, even though they seem like great cards.

    What are some of the best cards to build around when playing with these decks?

    Slowking (NG), Blastoise (BS)/Suicine EX, Vileplume EX.

    Anything that blocks trainer cards or does 100+ from T1 forwards is considered viable in that environment.

    Previously I had only searched the deck help forum, but I searched this forum and there was heaps of info on all these imbalanced cards...

    Slowking ftw...

    (and here I am thinking Clefable was one of the best...)

    Lass is probably the best card in unlimited right now (and maybe of all time)

    Slowking was mistranslated!

    When are they gonna errate this one? 6 (?) years since its release, and still no errata. :(

    ^Most cards there are horrible in unlimited.

    Cards like blastoise(base) and suicune ex. Energy removals and super energy removals. Vileplum(that blocks trainers).
    (i'm sure there are pokemon that blocks powers and bodies) and also aerodactly that blocks evolution.

    Decks like metanite, lbs, ludicardo, flariados, blissey, infernape,gallade,absol(SW) would loos badly against unlimited decks.

    after 10 posts and no one mentioned cleffa?

    Well, Lass-Cleffa was The Combo at it's time.

    Now you would prefer setting up fully and strike from T1, and Lass basically ends your turn.

    It's still good, it gives changes to many non-T1-decks to get their setup going... And Cleffa has the 50% protection from all attacks.

    its not so much the cards as the decks themselves. of course most decks played cleffa, oak, computer search, elm, bill, gold berry, and Town Volunteers.

    It's basically all been mentioned.
    BUT T1 Aerodactyl w/ Sneasel is pretty amazing.
    The game really comes down to who can play their trainers first.
    SO, going 2nd is huge, it can mean the difference btwn. the game.
    A good unlimited deck runs through nearly their entire deck on T1, which is why T1 Plume and T1 Aerodactyl are good counters to Blast/Cune.
    BUT it still all depends on the player who goes 2nd.

    Dark Gengar gets used fairly often, otherwise pretty much everything has been mentioned.

    Occasionally I run into a Brock's Ninetails + Stage 1/2 EX + Brock's protection
    but not often.

    Its amazing alot of people havent mentioned Gust of Wind.

    That deck in Unlimited Banette Ex is utter broken.

    Fossil Muk is awesome!

    Clefable-Muk, HL Banette-Muk, Raticate-Muk and Blissey-Muk are four of the best decks in Unlimited! They kill Vilex, Blasticune, and pretty much every other Power-reliant deck....even Sneasel-Slowking.

    For what it's worth, you can pretty much just put a good attacker with Slowking, Muk or Dark Vileplume and have a good deck. lol

    Also, Neo Discovery Igglybuff and Goop Gas Attack are good.

    A 30+ bench attacker is good for killing benched babies.
