Being one of the noobs in the tcg game I find it very frustrating going up against EX filled decks which uses sheer power more than actual strategy (if I sound a little bitter it's because I lose a lot). And this got me thinking: is it even remotely possible to win a tournament without EX's and if so, what are these decks made of?
Being in South Africa I posted it onto a local forum and only got 2 responses. Any other opinions?
The 2 responses were.
*1. Try Garchomp/Altaria... it's still extremely good, and no EX's there!
2. Mm, I don't have any other better suggestion than the Garchomp/Altaria, but....
Your deck does not need to be full of EXs to win. You might think of trading or getting
one or two EXs for a particular type of deck? For example the PlasmaKlang Deck only needs
2 Cobalion EX or 1 Cobalion EX and 1 Registeel EX.
The EXs have their power players but they also have some nifty attacks to add to a
strategy of a deck. The only EX that every needs at least one of is a Mewtwo EX and you
can now just buy that one in a tin. MewTwo EX Tin
I know how you feel a bit though. Coming from the Cape Town Regionals and all of the top
4 decks but one are just running big basic EXs. I watched the games just to learn moves
*and strategics of the big basics, but it was not fun to watch. :(
