I just recently started getting back into the game, I used to play quite a bit back in the days of neo, but besides playing unlimited with my friends, I would like to try modified. I thought up this deck because I wouldn't have to get many supporters, I have like 2 atm, and the X is coming out in a tin, so the deck should be easy to make, so far I have the energies from the old sets, and 1 rare candy, a good start. pokemon 14 3-2-3-1 Rhyperior 2-2 claydol 1 azelf LA trainers 26 rare candy 4 bebe's search 4 night maintenence 4 premier ball 4 felicity's 4 quick ball 4 super scoop up 2 energy 20 fighting 20 will sub out 4 fighting for 4 call if I can get my hands on some From what I've seen of other people's modified decks, the supporters can drain the pokemon from them pretty quickly, leaving nothing but delicious energy I guess the strategy here is to get a rhyperior X up and going as soon as possible and attack for 0, and with all those kingdra countering rogue decks that will be running around, I think it'll fare okay, also, it can take a hit from Kingdra and KO back. warp point kills this though, how do I deal with that? also, getting X prized would hurt, how do I fix that? really, it operates on the principle of a stronger, slower kricketune, I think. pros: 2HKO'd by kingdra, OHKOs back insane damage potential for 0 a little luck based, but shouldn't be once supporters have done their work 170 hp it's rhyperior combats growing electric metagame cons: bad starts losing a rhyperior X and not being able to get another one out because I've discarded my rhyperiors, which is why I added quick ball to get everything into my hand asap, and NM to combo with it, I'm still wary of that though, since I can't test it. not being able to use bebe's because I don't have a pokemon in my hand slow, a stage 2 lvl X is essentially a stage 3 possibly discards valuable cards having a candied X devolve after you've discarded all of your rhydon with hard crush hurts warp point hurts, rhyperior has an awful retreat, and I only have one X In closing... could someone give me a hand with this, I really don't know much of how newer decks work. also, where is the best place to get newer trainers and supporters?
