PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

My first TCG deck

0 votes

Hello, and welcome to my first TCG RMT! I'm fairly new to the trading card game, and since this is my first deck I ask that you go easy on me. ;P
This is a Water and Grass deck mainly, but I added a Fire Type, which I'm sure will make Rio barf.
I have a large Electric weakness, so I added the Stadium Card Plasma Frigate to ensure that at least Lugia EX will be safe.
For Energy reasons I think I'll replace Black Kyurem with White Kyurem.
Manaphy is supposed to synergize with Keldeo EX.
I think my Energy amounts are messed up, but it's what I have at the moment.
On with the deck!

Energy: 22

Water Energy x5

Fire Energy x5

Grass Energy x5

Double Colorless Energy x2

Plasma Energy x5

Pokemon: 25

I'm sorry Rio. I have let you down.
Note to self: Don't post RMTs late at night, you start doing things like adding too many Plasma Energy and messing up your Pokemon.
Please get dem tags outta there. It's un-ladylike. >.<
Since when am I ever lady-like? :P

Best answer

You have low amounts of energy, too many types of energy, and also five Plasma Energy, where four is the max.

First, the Pokemon. You can't even use Black Kyurem's attacks, so we'll take that out. Moltres is not a good EX card, and we need to lessen the number of types in the deck. While a tri-color deck can work (I've pulled a few off before) it isn't the best idea for a new player. We'll remove Keldeo, which is a card that fits in with Rain Dance more than a dual color deck. I'm also removing Lugia, mainly because it requires a bit more help to work to the best of its ability and also so we can have a different, easier to use EX. We'll then remove Jellicent and Frillish, since they aren't all that great. Bouffalant, Manaphy, and Druddigon can also be removed.

Now, we're left with Torterra and Beartic. The most obvious thing about this is the high retreat cost of Torterra and Beartic. Thankfully, there is an easy solution to that problem. Glaceon http://serebii.net/card/plasmafreeze/023.shtml decreases the retreat cost of all Plasma Pokemon by two. So have two of them out and Torterra and Beartic can retreat all they want. We then need a bit of Basic might. Kyurem http://serebii.net/card/plasmafreeze/031.shtml is bulky and can do nice damage to the foe. Shaymin http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/010.shtml can be used to get out Basics. The might of Torterra and Beartic backed by Glaceon's ability and the impressive Basic bulk of Shaymin and Kyurem provides a strong force. We'll then add a couple of Articuno EX http://serebii.net/card/plasmastorm/132.shtml which can easily deal with an unprepared foe.

Okay, so next up is the Trainers. You have pretty awful Trainers right now. Let's take all of them out except for Colress. Now let's add some Shadow Triad http://serebii.net/card/plasmafreeze/102.shtml, Pokemon Catcher http://serebii.net/card/emergingpowers/095.shtml, Cilan http://serebii.net/card/nextdestinies/086.shtml, Pokemon Communication http://serebii.net/card/blackwhite/099.shtml, Skyla http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/134.shtml, and a Computer Search http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/137.shtml.

Shadow Triad get back not only any defeated Torterra, Glaceon, Kyurem, and Beartic, but it also gets back your Colress and Plasma Energy. This makes them an invaluable card for a Plasma heavy deck such as this one. Pokemon Catcher is quite simply the best Trainer. Add four whenever possible. Cilan is good to get energy and thin out the deck. Nothing I hate more than getting an Energy in my draw. Pokemon Communication and Computer Search both work to get cards you need. Skyla is used to get back Trainers, which is very handy is you want to use Catchers some more.

Finally for Energy, we can have Grass, Water, and two Plasma. Let's see what the deck looks like.

Pokemon: 22

x2 Grotle

x1 Computer Search

Energy: 15
