    Looking at all the stage 1 Cards in the format right now, I just decide to throw some together to see if there can be ant continuity in them. So here it is goes:

    07 SITH

    Pokemon 20

    2-2 Grumpig CG
    2-2 Manectric DP2
    2-2 Abomasnow DP2
    2-2 Ambipom DP2
    2-2 Gyarados DP2

    Trainers 27

    4 Bill’s Maintenance/ TVR (Depends on Play Style)
    2 Steven’s Advice
    1 Copycat / Team Galactic Wager
    1 Prof. Rowan/ Team Galactic Wager
    4 Celio’s
    2 H. Mentor
    2 Castaway
    1 Scott
    1 Strength Charm
    3 Plus Power
    2 Windstorm
    2 Battle Frontier/ Lake Boundary
    2 Night Maintenance

    Energy 13

    4 DRE
    2 Scramble
    7 Water

    the strategy, for those that arent familiar with the SITH from before (*Nods to Patriarch) is to Metagame your entire area for whatever might come out. With this one I have a Grass Type that uses Water nrg, Colorless that can use Water nrg, Gyarados which uses Water nrg, Manectric's first attack can abuse water nrg, and grumpig, well it is a Mario Tech and also causes some irrtation with Empoleon and Infernape do to it's Body.. it will mainly use DRE or Scramble!

    It doesn't really matter what your starter is in these decks, the idea os to setup the counter to your opponent. It also helps in triggering the Scramble for setup and attacking with the solo nrg attachment!

    A small explanation for some of the Pokes I chose:

    2-2 Grumpig CG Circular Steps is just nasty if bot hare setup with loaded benches. With everyone going to Empoleon, Ape, Gatr style decks, the Pigs Body helps it live a little while so to setup your counter attacker! It can hit for 110 with both benches full with a scramble or 100 with a Dre and W attached! Just Power and Fun!!

    2-2 Manectric DP2 With the Empoleon and Gatrs runnnign around now, you need an Electric attacker so I chose Manectric. Stacking Basic NRG makes the first attack nice, But with a Scramble attached, you can hit for 70 and spread damage with it's second attack! Solid damage and the spread helps a lot!

    2-2 Abomasnow DP2 This one was a FANTASTIC addition do to a Grass type to handle those pesky grass week deck. Its Body allows for Status Conditions to allow a possible prolonged life.. and the Damage Spread (Heads Flip) isnt reduced as it PLACES the damage counter, very Important with DRE attached! Just overall a Heavy guy to sit up there and take some damage at 100 HP!!

    2-2 Ambipom DP2 This was a toss up between Ambipom and Dodrio. I chose Ambipom as it can do the 80 for 2 (70 with a DRE) but also can supply some disruption wiht your opponents mental state! This Funky Monkey is just pure fun and sets up quickly!!

    2-2 Gyarados DP2 OK, THIS GUY PWNS... as long as Karp can Live! Just attach 1 nrg and Flail away!! the HP helps a lot and it can creat havoc if someone cant get the OHKO on it! 120 HP and DNA for the Flail is just nice in a Sith.. hard ot overlook!!

    So there you go!! Enjoy and keep those Minds open to look for other awesome possibilities!!

    The deck looked awful at first glance, but after reading your strategy, it is quite impressive! I don't understand why you call it "SITH" though.

    The main problem that I see is your reliance on Scramble. You talk about it a lot, but only have two. Since a lot of your attacks require one colorless energy, I'd play some Heal Energy. I know it sounds stupid, but it is a highly underrated card! It could help Grumpig withstand two hits from an Empoleon without fainting!

    SITH was the name given to the deck back in like 04 or 05 season that was based around all the best stage 1 Pokemon at the time, and was very anti-Meta.
    It had like Cargo, D. Hypno, Lanturn, and Rhydon I think.
    This is just another varient for 07.
    Looks pretty good.

    Very nice picks for the deck. I'd probably not run ambipom but I see what your going for.

    Run some night maintenace for recovery.

    OK, thanks for the answer. I wasn't in the tournament scene back then.

    Mew*... I was trying to point out the flexibility of the Scramble and how it can produce the quick hit so that others can see how this deck can actually keep up a bit! I do like the idea of Heal nrg but it is so tight in there.. may work with it a little!

    Kempley.. I am running 2 of them and that is tight... for complete rotation a third would be nice!

    P.Elm.. Thanks for replying to that!!

    The ORIGINAL name cant be referenced any longer so this was the Pick!

    Super Tech was the principal.... the other letters were changed to keep the reputation of the boards adn it was changed to using DARK Pokemon to go along with the release of Star Wars!! So SITH is how it was renamed!

    I did think about going with 6 Water and 3 scramble, but with more pokes abusing the Water nrg, it worked out this way!

    DM8, I considered going back to Lanturn PK but decided to use Manectric instead.. Lanturn is still viable, but the dbl weakness hurts it a bit and would change the whole deck theme!

    I love the Ampibom in here. I think this can be a very cruel card as you win with the KO or limit your opponent. Good flexible deck.

    VERY nice. The one pokemon that I'm not sold on here is Ambipom. Outside of Chomp & Flygon d there isn't a lot of colorless weakness out there ... and Ambi is going to have a hard time KOing them. What about Blissey as a replacement?

    Wow, I thought the new MT Ninetails would be a big key to any four corners deck. Good idea.

    MT manectric does have some pretty awesome attacks, but from what I've seen while using it, 80 hp just doesn't make the cut. If you plan to use him mainly for the gatr/empoleon matchup, it's pretty necessary that you run lake boundary as your stadium, so you can make him count.

    Okay, for all who dont know.

    Sith is a deck that I believe Whicker created (might be kettler). It was Dark Dragonite, Magcargo, Dark Electrode and other Dual Type Pokemon. Dragonite was used to move the energys to the pokemon that the opp. was weak to.

    blissey or dodrio is definatly a better play than aipibom

    SITH was an acronym that stood for whatever, it was NOT the version with Dark Dragonite, that one was called Dark SITH

    meches: do you think this is still a big contender, with weakness now maxing at only +30?

    ^thats why the made lake boundary.. and the new fossil metal dudes weakness is plus 40

    So this would be better described as a 4 corners varient? Ninetails sounds like a very nice line to have here.

    One other thing i remember is the need for a decent attacker T2. Usually they played 4 Swoop! Teleporter to try and ensure this. 4 Switch would be overkill I suspect, but I think a switching card would be helpful here.

    I'd add a scramble more though, maybe even two more.
    And take out the Ambipom. I don't see it being any good. I'd rather go for 2 Crystal Shard, and then you have two free spaces!
