    There's a half-deck challenge of the sorts going on at my league later on this week.
    First prize is a booster box.
    Any idea on what I should play?
    SP is NOT an option.
    Only 30 cards, at a max 2 copies of each card, no Stage 2's, no Lv. X's that evolve from Stage 2's.

    I was thinking a Mightyena type of donk deck.
    Sample list:

    2 -2 Mightyena PL
    2 Crobat G
    2 Skuntank G
    2 Uxie
    1 Honchkrow G
    1 Unown Q
    Total: 12

    2 Collector
    2 Bebe
    2 SSU
    2 BTS
    1 Luxury Ball
    1 Twins
    2 Belt
    2 Poke Turn
    Total: 13
    Total cards thus far: 26

    2 Sp. Dark
    2 Dark
    Total: 4
    Total so far: 30

    Basic strategy, pray to get the T1 Mightyena, use Skuntank G to Poison Structure, and Desperate Attack for 80-100/turn.

    Any thoughts?

    You will definitely need more stadiums
    Victory Medal if you own any would be amazing
    Can you run 4 Special Darks? Or only 2?

    By saying max 2 copies of a given card, they mean anything but basic Energy, so yes, I would presume only two Special Dark.

    I don't remember the details, but didn't Arceus shine in the 30 cards format last year at the professors cup?

    Agreed with Kayle, you'll have problems getting Poison Structure off right now - you need something to pull up those Stadiums. Thankfully, we have a card that basically sets you up, in the form of Honchkrow G. It uses an attack to set up, but it's searchable and gets you out of no-stadium starts, getting you the stadium and a poke turn. Since that also makes your Crobats more reliable, I would say -1 Crobat G, +1 Honchkrow G.
