    This is a sort of a Mario variation with Sandslash MT instead of Lucario. Here is the list:

    Pokemon- (15)
    4 Sandshrew MT
    4 Sandslash MT
    3 Machop DP
    1 Machoke DP
    3 Machamp DP

    Trainers- (20)
    4 PlusPower DP
    2 Strength Charm DF
    4 Cessation Crystal CG
    4 Rare Candy HP
    2 Windstorm CG
    4 Warp Point DP (might seem oppressive, but it wins games for me, it really does :D)

    Supporters- (12)
    3 Holon Mentor DF
    2 Team Galactic's Wager MT
    3 Castaway CG
    4 Celio's Network CG

    Energy- (13)
    8 Fighting Energy PK
    3 Double Rainbow Energy CG
    2 Scramble Energy DF

    Strategy: T1 Sandshrew uses Sand Attack for disruption against your opponent so that Pokemon such as Infernape have a 50% chance to T1 me with a DRE. T2 Sandslash and then either use Spike Armor or attach a DRE and do 50 with Poison Spike. When Sandslash gets Knocked Out, send up Machamp with an energy to do 70 with Revenge. Rinse and repeat.

    Pokemon Analysis-

    Sandshrew:

    Used for T1 disruption and to evolve into Sandslash T2 or T1 with Rare Candy going second.

    Sandslash:

    Attack with Spike Armor to put 4 damage counters on the attacking Pokemon or attach DRE and hit for 50 with Poison Spike.

    Machop:

    http://pokegym.net/gallery/displayimage.php?imageid=22612

    Used to evolve to Machamp, but can also be started with to hit for 20+ with PlusPower and Strength Charm.

    Machoke:

    http://pokegym.net/gallery/displayimage.php?imageid=22579

    Used to evolve to Machamp...and that is pretty much it. :D

    Machamp:

    Revenge hits for 70 when Sandslash gets Knocked Out and if you are behind on prizes, Scramble can be your best friend to use Dynamic Punch.

    I think you should just stick with mario.

    i think this deck mades a lot of sense cause theyll have to take the 40 if they choose to kill the sandslash then they have to deal with the 70 from machamp. but if you have three candys do you really need 2 machokes?

    dude, when they evolve the effects of Sand Attack go away.

    or retreat, switch, warp point, bleh. Sand attack isn't a big part in this though,

    Actualy, I think that mario is so bad that you should try this. Looks interesting.

    Everybody, thanks for the props and the fixes. Do you guys think I should make the Machamp line 3-1-3 and add +1 ????

    I checked and Sandslash's Spike Armor says, "...if an opponent's attack...." isn't Active Pokemon, opponent's so SuicidalPikachu and Rew are incorrect. Sorry for bumping.

    I don't think this has the donking ability Mario does. Let's call it SORRYio.

    You make a good point and i was thinking maybe a 1-1 or 2-2 Dugtrio CG so they have to hit my active to get the four damage counters and if I start with Diglett, I can Warp Point. :D
