    This my friends, is the Burning Swarm. I have used it a 2 BR's Previously, and have had a combined record of 7-3 making one Top Cut and have only lost to T2 Beedrill, Garchomp/Infernape, and Hurricane.

    Any way to help my deck is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    4 Moltres MD
    4 Eevee MD 62/100
    2 Leafeon MD 24/100
    1 Umbreon MD
    1 Espeon MD
    2 Leafeon Lv.X MD
    1 Cyndaquil MT
    1 Typhlosion MT


    4 Switch
    4 Roseanne's Research
    4 TV Reporter
    2 Rare Candy
    3 Super Scoop Up
    2 Celio's Network (i only have 2)
    2 Bebe's Search
    2 Night Maintenence


    12 Fire
    6 Grass
    3 Multi



    Strategy:Hope for Eevee start... Spread out the Eevees. Start to set up Espeon, Umbreon, and Leafeon. Get Typhlosion and Moltres somewhere along the way. Hope that you hit your coin flips on Flame Charge. Once you have Typhlosion, Leafeon Lv.X and Moltres set up, go for the most likely essential 100 every turn. Leafeon Lv.X makes a great attacker as well

    So, there is the list, any help would be appreciated.

    I'm very interested in the logisitics of this. Do you search out all 4 Eevees T1 and then drop a Cyndaquil? Because then you only have one bench space for Moltres? And with only 9 basics, 1 in every 3 games you start with Moltres. 30% mulligan rate isn't too great either. I'm just intruiged, and it would be very helpful if you went into a little more detail about just how it works?

    MO I would drop the 1-0-1 Typhlosion line and the 2 Rare Candies for a 2-2 Claydol. I just don't like that 1-0-1 tech...too risky.

    -1 Cyndaquil
    -1 Typhlosion

    -2 Rare Candies

    +2-2 Claydol

    I would drop the Typhlosion if it wasn't so Crucial to get my Moltres' going, but maybe that isn't a bad idea

    MagicUmberon:i actually have only mulliganed once with this deck. Yes, i have had a couple of Moltres starts which arent pretty, but a majority of the time, i start with Eevee. I normally CCF for 2 Eevees, meaning i have 3/6, leaving me room for 1 Typhlosion and up to 2 Moltres. I actually do ok with the Flame Charge flips also, so i don't normally have to worry, but it's definitely not the majority of the flips. All in all, the deck works out very well if i can at least get Leafeon/Moltres by T2-T3, which i normally do. The Typhlosion has come in handy before, and i actually use Leafeon as an attacker alot more than people think.

    It's important to think about what has happened AND what can happen. You have an equal chance of starting with Moltres and Eevee. Definitely cut out one Moltres.

    I actually would play 2-2-1 Delcatty in this deck this way you can charge a moltres early and then get your energy back into your deck with Delcatty EX.

    I thought about throwing Delcatty in this deck, but i just currently can't find the room, especially if i only decide to play 3 Moltres, then maybe i can cut down on some energy, i will just have to see
