    well i just got back from a really long break from pokemon tcg and i wanted to return and play with a competitive deck i saw lavaflow theme deck and i was really impressed with magmortar's ability so here's my attempt to build a Magmortar deck slightly based on the theme deck

    Pokemon 20
    4x Magmar
    3x Magmortar
    1x Magmortar lvl x
    2x Growlithe
    2x Arcanine
    3x Cyndaquil
    2x Quilave
    3x Typhlosion (Firestarter)

    Energy 16
    12x Fire
    4x Dre

    Trainer Cards 24
    2x Roseanne's Research
    4x Celios Network
    4x Tv Reporter
    2x Nightly Maintenance
    2x Team Galaxy Wager
    2x Copycat
    3x Steven's Advice
    3x Rare Candy
    1x switch
    1x Warp Point

    the deck revolves around Magmortar's ability to dish out huge damage by pumping him up with the help of firestarter. Arcanine provides secondary attacker and will be able to save the active pokemon using its pokepower but also dish out 120 damage.

    actually im not familiar with our metagame but from what ive heard water type are not that popular and even though i wanted to have electric as back up for Magmortar there are quite a few to choose from (electivire and Ampharos) which im not sure will fit the deck.

    Any help modifications and suggestions are strongly needed and much appreciated

    Woops, my bad

    If you dont like RK9 add in 2-2 Catty and 1-0-1 Typhlosion

    Then take out 2 Fire Energy and put in 2 Corsola

    IMO Scramble is better than DRE in here if you let them take the first prize, its plus 60 which helps alot

    If you are still looking for an electric tech of some sort, you can try Rayquaza ex d from Dragon Frontiers, who is very usable as a tech with its body. If you were thinking about Electivire or Ampharos, don't go with Electivire. It needs its own deck to work at all.
