The opponent has only one prize left. I only have one prize left. My opponent has a Darkrai EX out, undamaged. The Terrakion on my bench has only 30 HP left. Things are looking dire. But I send out Shaymin EX, who deals 180 damage to my opponent's Darkrai EX.
This is The 11th Hour, a deck that is strongest in its final hour. Of course, I don't intend to just gain six prizes when my opponent has only one, and Terrakion's basic might along with Cacturne's low energy cost will allow me to nab some prizes. Plus Shaymin and Lucario become more powerful as the match goes on. A risky deck to use, but one that I wanted to make.

-Needed for evolution.
x3 Lucario: http://serebii.net/card/plasmastorm/078.shtml
-An incredibly powerful card. My opponent just needs two prize cards left in order for Lucario to take down most EX cards. And only three left before it can take down Stage 2 cards with one hit. As for Basics and Stage 1 cards, four prizes left is enough for a large number of them.
x2 Cacnea: http://serebii.net/card/plasmafreeze/009.shtml
-Needed for evolution.
x2 Cacturne: http://serebii.net/card/plasmafreeze/010.shtml
-If I can launch that one for 60 attack early in the game, I have a huge advantage. Downside of course is that I have to damage one of my own Pokemon. Also has Payback for two energy, which becomes a two for 90 with energy discard when my opponent has only one prize left.
x3 Terrakion: http://serebii.net/card/noblevictories/073.shtml
-130 HP basic with two 90 damage attacks.
x3 Shaymin: http://serebii.net/card/boundariescrossed/010.shtml
-Used to bring out basics.
x2 Shaymin EX: http://serebii.net/card/nextdestinies/005.shtml
