    This is a deck I built the day after the prerelease, its built somewhat like beedrill, but has a few different twists! So far this deck has done excellent and set up extremely fast everytime! The list is currently 7-1, and I think it could prove to be a contender in upcoming tournaments....

    So heres the list!

    Pokemon: 17
    4-3-3-1 infernape MD/ 1 dp
    2-2 claydol
    2 moltress (awesome tech, a good back up for extra dmg)

    Trainers: 28

    4 rare candy
    4 Master ball
    2 Dual ball
    1 Roseanne's
    3 Crystal beach (shuts off gg and other stuff that relys on DRE and scramble.)
    3 Plus power
    2 Night maintenance
    2 Super scoop up (for moltress, and can come in handy for weak apes..)
    2 Stevens advice
    2 Felecity's drawing (discard energy for moltress, and draw power.)
    2 Bebe's research
    1 Celios network

    Energy: 15

    13 fire
    2 multi (for claydol)

    So far this list has worked extremely well, heres the strategy.

    Start with a chimchar and try to get t1 or t2 infernape and hit for 30 and spread early game.. Get an infernape active with about 2 energy on it, then start powering up multiple apes on the bench.. Once you get a few energy in the discard, or you need a quick 100, or you have no more energy on your ape, go for moltress. The moltress is pretty good against gallade because of its -20 resistence and it requires gallade to flip over an extra prize! Comments and suggestion always welcome!


    Oh and I came up with the name Infidel cause INfernape clayDOL (del)

    Infernape DP is NOT A TECH. Adding 10 damage to your attack is what Pluspower/Strength Charm do, and they both do it better than a stage 2. If you have so many energies in the discard, you should be running the Lv. X.

    That being said, it looks like a solid idea. I prefer some kind of Firestarter to keep 80-120 damage going throughout the game than Moltres, but it does take up less space. Can't argue with 7-1...

    Something in a deck that is in a small number, that isn't core to the central strategy, but helps makes matchups easier. An example would be playing a crystal shard in a deck, or a strength charm. A single card that isn't essential to the strategy, but assists the strategy in certain key situations.

    ^thanks for the explination, I dont have the level x in here because I never thought about using it.. I guess it could work, but it would require me to take out an ape. I never said the infernape dp was a tech, its just in there for its first attack if I need it to get lucky... (mrdraz...)

    Playing DP Ape for the first attack is even worse lol. If you don't want to run the X just play another MD Ape.

    I also have no clue why you're not using DREs. Fire + DRE = 110, or 2 Fires + DRE = 150, or 2 DRE = 140.

    OR 1 DRE+8 Fire in the discard=140, so yea, Infernape X should always be run, i would even say ixnay on the aydolcla and run delcatty. and i dont see the point of Moltres, it sits up on your active position and dies, or dies if you roll a tails on its power? or does it require a flip? and it would be REALLY bad to start with.. especially since you only run like 8 basics.
