    I've been considering Gengar for a while. Nice idea, but since Moonlights are essential, maybe 1/2 Scott? Lose the pokenav for 2 more celios. 6 masterballs/duskballs seems risky but since you are going for speed and have so much of them, you should be okay. Don't know about tournament winner but it seems like a decent deck to me!

    (Funniest start: Bronzor with no other basics. Dusk/masterballs get you Haunters, Gengars and Claydol. lol)

    mrdraz07: can I put this deck on my stickied thread, Library of Modified Decks?

    dont run 1 4-3-4 line and 4 candys, waste of space
    do 3-2-3 and 3 candys. Most everything else has been said

    even if 3-2-3 when something dies u night maintenece then u want to get it out quick so 4 candies. playing 3-2-3 lowers teh chance of getting it as a basic so bronzong is pointless in early game.

    After a lot of play-testing (approx. 20 games): IT ROCKS!

    The 10 pokepower spread element is pro, and Genegar is an amazing spread. I tested it with a slightly differed trainer line:

    4 Rare Candy
    4 Moonlight Stadium
    4 Celio's
    4 Dusk Ball
    3 Pokedex Handy 910is
    2 Prof. Oak's Project
    3 Warp Point
    = 24 Trainers

    Professor Oaks over Professor Birch because of Claydol. 4 Dusk Ball to fetch any pokemon sent to bottom with Prof. Oaks and Claydol. 4 Celio's because it is needed. I want to run 1 Scott but I don't know what to take out.

    If you don't get a moonlight stadium, there are two things you can do.

    1. Still put Bronzong up and Pain Amplifier rather than Gengar.
    2. Put up a Haunter if you don't have a benched Bronzong then free retreat next turn.

    Spread cards not to use that are tempting:

    Aerodactyl: Slows down the deck and is not really worth playing since pokepowers are optional and having a pokepower isn't.

    Ampharos: Slows down the deck a lot.

    Rayquaza ex d: You have to add lightning energy which slows down the deck.

    how about dodrio? CCC: triple pick; do 30 to 3 pokemon. if you attach dre it still does 20 to 3 pokemon.

    Dodrio = no. Wastes 3 energy and DRE disrupts the spread. Gengar/Bronzong is a solid combo (more than solid, amazing combo actually) and you don't clutter the deck up with unessecary pokemon. Plus there's no space in th deck for 4 extra pokemon.

    After a lot of play-testing: Bronzong is good as well! Bronzong can normally spread more than Gengar but it doesn't have the flexibility of Gengar (doing 30 to one and 10 to another). Pain Coating isn't particularly good. Plox can kill it if played well and Magmortar can also kill it off, although if Ghost in a Bell is played correctly it can reuce Maggy's damage (Maggy needs 6 energy to kill off Bronzong/Gengar). And Gengar can't be attacked apart from sniping or if you Life Drain them. Life Drain is also a good attack.

    I am seriously considering playing my version of this deck.

    Lot of play-testing? Your version?

    If you don't mind, I'd like to see a new list. I'm all for changing the list.

    He's playing it for you. <333

    It's pretty solid and I think he beat a Magmortar at league last weekend.

    Wait a minute, Bronzong has no legs! He floats! =.=

    No, the deck sounds like a lot of fun. Gengar has always been underestimated, even though its a liability on a flip. Good luck with it.

    I tested this out, and I was sorely disappointed. Gengar lacks the big damage capability that Empoleon has, and even the spreading ability (since 30 for P is inferior to 30 to 2 for WC). Because of that, I had difficulty OHKOing anything. I flipped much lower than 50% for Gengar's Poke-Power too, with my opponent even sometimes being able to burn me for the KO, not even activating Gengar's ability.

    Bronzong just didn't help much at all. It didn't help OHKO anything either, and with Gengar taking so long to lay damage, by the time Bronzong came out, the game was already over.

    it's a cute idea, but spreading doesn't win games anymore. big damage does.

    edit: oops, it looks like this deck was made for this format with the DP gengar. Sorry about that.

    Looks like a nice deck, although unfortunately formats about to change....:frown: Yeah I ran Skittles for a while(and still do since I haven't had time to make a new deck), so I should know, just about any deck with Bronzong will kill Skittles. Interesting idea though, I like it.
