Ice Burn (Water/Fire Deck)

0 votes

I know that both of these types watch each other's back, so now each only has 1 weakness. Plus, water actually covers the other weakness of fire. Anyways, I took Kyogre EX, and looked at it's problems. I noticed it almost has an inability to attack the pokemon out in battle. So, I noticed Reshiram. With it's power to attack, and the fact that it's not EX (so i can fit in another Kyogre EX) really makes it apart of my team. Here's the rest of the deck, and all of that jazz...
English Sets only.

Pokemon: 21

Kyogre EX: http://serebii.net/card/darkexplorers/026.shtml :X2
The main roller for this deck, there's two because usually Trachy suggest two of the same EX cards.

Reshiram: http://serebii.net/card/bwpromos/023.shtml :X2
Absolutly dominates the opponent. Perfect need for Kyogre, even though it means lots of energy space.

Tepig: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/024.shtml :X3
All for the Emboar.

Pignite: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/025.shtml :X2
Still all for Emboar, but this Pignite's still decent.

Emboar: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/026.shtml :X1
Almost as strong as an EX card. It's unbelievable.

Moltres: http://serebii.net/card/nextdestinies/014.shtml :X2
Powerful. But i'm really pushing the Energies here...

Squirtle: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/029.shtml :X3
The protection on the bench with shell shield is priceless.

Wartortle: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/030.shtml :X2
Withdraw makes this pokemon less vulnerable while it's using waterfall.

Blastoise: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/031.shtml :X1
This is part of the core on this deck. The ability is unbelievable, hydro pump gives this deck the right to have water energies...

Kyurem: http://serebii.net/card/bwpromos/044.shtml :X2
Glaciate is very useful when trying to hit the pokemon on the sideline.

Energies: 19

11 Fire Energy
8 Water Energy

Trainers: 20

X1 Gold potion
X4 Cilian
X2 Pokemon Catchers
X2 N
X5 Evolite
X3 Pokemon Communication
X3 Cheren

Your lessons for today: Besides Basic Energy cards, you can only have four of a card in your deck. Second is that Water actually doesn't cover any weaknesses of Fire. Fire is only weak to Water. Water is not any better against Water.

Now for taking out Pokemon. Moltres should be taken out. Reshiram is just a far better basic. We'll take out the Emboar line. It isn't very powerful. A four for 120... Reshiram has a better attack and it's a basic. Plus, Emboar's four retreat cost can trouble you. Finally we'll take out the Blastoise line. Blastoise is an excellent Pokemon, in fact it is one of the best in the game. However, that is only for the specialized Rain Dance deck. Your deck requires Fire Energy far more than Water Energy. Taking out Blastoise will leave more room and allow you to pull off a Stage 2 line that better fits your deck.

Now for cards to add. With the space we have let's add one more Reshiram and two more Kyurem. We have a nice number of basic powerhouses so far, nine actually. Let's make that 11 and let's have those two we add be cards that further support our basic dominance. Lapras has a nice 100 HP and can search for more basics to be put on the bench. Now for a new Stage 2 line to replace Emboar and Blastoise. I'm going to suggest Chandelure whose bench damaging and powerful two for 80 can cause some heavy damage to the opponent. The low energy use also allows you to place more energy on your Reshiram. We'll add two Chandelure, two Lampent and three Litwick. Finally, I'm going to suggest adding two more basics to your deck. Tornadus will provide some handy support for your team, including getting back Energy. That should do it for Pokemon.

For Energy, let's go ten Fire and seven Water. A little heavy on the Energy, I know. But I think it is needed for this deck.

We have 23 spaces available for Trainers. We need to take out an Eviolite, because as of now your deck is against the rules. However, we'll keep the other four, as this deck is very basic heavy. I'm actually going to suggest taking out the three Pokemon Communications. The two Lapras help get out Pokemon quickly enough, so Communication isn't needed. Plus, the room is going to be used for more important Trainers. Let's add another Cheren and two more Catchers. And finally, we'll add four Super Rod to get back Energy lost by Chandelure and Reshiram.

Final Deck: 60

Pokemon: 20

x3 Litwick
x2 Lampent
x2 Chandelure
x4 Kyurem
x3 Reshiram
x2 Lapras
x2 Tornadus
x2 Kyogre EX

x4 Cilan
x4 Pokemon Catcher
x4 Eviolite
x4 Cheren
x4 Super Rod
x2 N
x1 Gold Potion

Energy: 17
