Finally got around to organizing a spreadsheets for all of my decks for easy navigation and modification, but I'd like some feedback on how to modify them; most of these are proxy decks that I'm building to test/as loaner decks to teach folks at uni how to play.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rXvlbRqA4UW9u-UDlBDOTdwy_uNoMPHZnH8lDEsmXd4/
>Chomp/Lucario
Pretty much the budget deck from the paste ft. baby buzz. I want to convert this, but I don't know whether to go Dragon chomp or Fightan chomp.
>Malamar
Not happy with how this has been performing lately; thinking of converting it to UNecrozma, especially if Viridian Forest is as much of a buff to it as I think it is.
>Zoroark
Really happy with how well this has been testing; it started out as a Jirachi/Zapdos deck with Zoroark jammed into it. If I can optimize it, this or Tool Drop is probably what I'll try taking to Collinsville.
>Tool Drop
Exactly per the pic. Which is the better variant of this? I've seen versions without the aegislash/memories, and a version with lightning energy/volkner/koko prism.
>Pheromosa
A thought experiment that I'm trying to breathe new life into. Used to have Nihilego as a tech, but it was godawful Guzma bait.
>Control
Still under construction, and I've never played a deck like this before, so I'm not sure what the optimal balances are, or if I should run water energy so Swampert can actually take KOs.

Planned:
>some kind of Golisopod variant
>fire, either Charizard or Blacephalon
>had someone request me find out if any variant of Houndoom was viable
>>

so the new themes decks are kinda bad huh?

i played some torneys and barely saw any charizard or blastoise
>>
>Theme Shitter
>>
>>37531125
Wasn't blasto good?
>>
What are people saying is currently the optimal Pika/Zek build? I have seen many using the Jirachi engine but I am also seeing a few with Raikou.

I really like the few with Raikou as they run Acerolas which I feel is necessary right now.

>>37531433

New to collecting physical cards.

Is it worth buying Elite trainer boxes? Are you guaranteed a holo in each box or is it all random?
>>
>>37531659
you are only going to get shit from that box, fuck pikachu
>>
>>37531668
Stop memeing and give me a serious answer please ;_;
>>
>>37531686
I think you are guaranteed at least one holo, but I'm not entirely sure
>>
>>37531659
I prefer it over buying loose packs, at least at first. Once you have the awesome stuff it comes with you should consider dropping the 100 on a booster box.
>>
>>37531659

if you are never going to play IRL all the energy you get in this box is going to be useless for you
>>
>>37531714
>Booster box

Really? I always see people say that from a pure monetary standpoint, buying singles will be better than opening sealed product (on average)
>>
>>37531751
Buying individual cards is for soulless collectors or Pro players.
>>
>>37531778
Aka the people who keep the game alive?
>>
>>37530923
Murdered by a Jirachi. Witnesses say that the suspect was last seen riding a rocket-powered skateboard.
>>
>>37531798
Recycling cards for your collection does not keep the game alive.
>>
Ou7c4st says it is will be updated today. I guess I need to know a fair price/offer for Jirachis.
>>
>price of Jirachi keeps rising
>promo is now worth more than the prerelease kit
Come the fuck on Gamestop, get your fucking shipments in already.
>>
>>37531659
I think this is the definition of a collectors product and wannabe player
The box is tight as fuck
Inside the paper around the box there is artworks than serves as a poster
The exclusives dices are nice
The sleeves are not the best of the market but i think they're pretty lit(dat zekrom and pikachu tho)
For a new player it is very nice, but put in your head than the booster in the box will not be enough to make any deck. But with a little luck you can sell your precious pull(tag team and such) and make a budget rogue deck or start making a serious deck around it.
Also the new energy arts are cool
>>
>>37531125
Charizard is good but i think entei still better
Blastoise eats entei and charizard for breakfast and dabs on other water decks because of golduck
>>
>>37531659
The price of sealed ones skyrocket over time usually, so they're decent collector's products. They're a definite buy if you ever plan on attending leagues.
>>
>>37531918
>>37531924

What's the estimated holo rate for these boxes?
>>
>>37531659
Its just 8 random packs so no guaranteed holos. You're paying an extra $10 for the dice, markers, sleeves, and the box itself. If you're just getting into playing the game or want the paraphernalia then the box is worth buying
>>
>>37531958
Quit calling them "holos". I usually get 2 GX or higher in each of these boxes
>>
>>37531958
0-2
>>
>>37531895
You must be new. Ou7c4st says he will update today, and then 3 days later the update day will be today and it won't be updated with the update day being then

There's a guy I've seen in a bunch of youtube vids and on streams with a CeleSaur deck that I've seen win all the time. 2-2-2 Sceptile 2? Jirachi 2? CeleSaur 4 Shaymin.
>>
>>37532729
baby Sceptile or GX? I should try that one when I get some Shaymins and a second Jirachi

>>37532747
Baby Sceptile. I guess as a counter to clown man
>>
>>37532751
mind linking a vid or anything?
>>
>>37532753
The guy doesn't have a channel. It's just that every time I've seen him play CeleSaur he wins. But I just kind of looked at his deck from Azul's video. It's the first game at 2:15.

I want to display a specific card on a desk, so I want a stand for it, ideally see through plastic and not huge.

Is there like a named brand or item or an amazon listing for something that you guys might know of for this?

Google and other searches are fruitless because all I'm finding are like the holders for connecting ID cards to lanyards. The few that are meant for holding this kind of card are huge, obscure the card art, or are coloured plastic.

I think you can buy the cases used for graded cards from PSA without having a card graded along with the stands for the cases

>>37550111
You want to play celebi/venusaur as more of a stalling deck - think Plumeria, hammers, and more. You just use the first attack to put confusion on and disrupt the opponent, and use hammers to completely mess up their setup. Flip tails? Don't worry, evergreen GX will shuffle them all back in while simultaneously healing off everything.

>more of a stalling deck
I've seen a bit of back and forth on that, so I'm not sure. My first concern was not auto-losing to Blachephalon and Charizard; got add/drop suggestions?

The more consistent list has things like Lance/Dragonite but it's still ass. If you pull 4 gyarados and don't have a water deck I don't see why not complete challenges with it

Vaporeon is not a basic and being weak to grass won't help it much
>>
>>37552053
Ideally, it would combine with a basic water attacker that is weak to lightning or metal. I'm just not sure who that is. Articuno GX possibly? I don't think there is a good partner. Wailord&Magikarp GX is underwhelming and weak to grass.

hello fellow spreadsheet autist. pheromosa is perfect beast ring bait for the upcoming pheroswole tag team. i played pheroswole with venusaur at an LGS (japan) but it didnt feel very nice. i didnt test this out yet but anything with stage 1s over stage 2s will be automatically smoother. i did a few test draws, and found that pheromosa + free retreaters + switch + net ball + lisia + lele gives some good donk potential, and if you cant set it up, you can at least spam confusion until you power up your pheroswole and lurantis

Is Tapu Lele-GX still a must have card? I've seen people talk about Jirachi, but I'm pretty new to all this so I'm kind of confused. I pulled a full art Lily, so I'm probably going to trade it for some packs and I'm still deciding what I should trade the packs for.

There's your answer, too easy to E-Hammer/Faba into the Lost Zone while Mist Slash's "You may shuffle this Pokémon and all cards attached to it into your deck." combined with deck-searchers slows the deck down to a considerable level when compared to using Mysterious Guidance Alolan Ninetales-GX to set up one or more bench-sitting snipers per turn.

Wasn't the point of Greninja Combo that your SBE is never vulnerable to anything but mill?

The main problem here is consistency, how are you going to make sure that you have a Greninja at the ready when you need to attack given the requirements for Super Boost Energy's 4 Rainbow effect to kick in when you're constantly shuffling said Greninja-GX line AND Super Boost Energy back into your deck? The combo basically has to answer the same question many other hyped "power" combos are faced with: If it's so strong then why is it not topping tournaments?
>That makes the Decidueye argument even worse, now its 4-1-4 Decidueye with Candies and Timer Balls and 4-2 Alolan Ninetales too.
>now its 4-1-4 Decidueye with Candies and Timer Balls and 4-2 Alolan Ninetales too.
>4-2 Alolan Ninetales too
>That'sNotHowItWorksYouLittleShit.jpg
Do none of you check LimitlessTCG's tournament results? Most Decidueye GX/A-Ninetails GX decks run three Beacon Alolan Vulpix (with some even running an Alolan Ninetales GX GUR instead of a third Mysterious Guidance A-Ninetales GX as an alternate attacker) for a reason. This isn't even getting into builds that run Zoroark GX alongside the two.

if you are running the Meganium gimmick yes

How frowned upon is it to use a world championship Lele as a proxy for a real one in a pretty casual situation? Other people definitely use proxies, printed and even drawn. I didn't know it was a world's card. Bought it and a secret rare grass energy for $15

I'm fine with the RNG of a deck because of the amount of supporters we have to control drawing.

What I am not ok with is weaknesses. I like the idea but it shouldn't be a guaranteed knock out for any non stage 1 baby pokemon. It should be like +30-40 at most. Some decks are just an auto loss because of it.

Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[R][C] Outrage: 30+ damage. This attack does 10 more damage for each damage counter on this Pokemon.

[R][R][R][C] Flare Strike: 230 damage. This Pokemon can’t use Flare Strike during your next turn.

[R][R][R]+ Double Blaze GX: 200+ damage. If this Pokemon has at least 3 extra [R] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), this attack does 100 more damage and it’s not affected by any effects on your opponent’s Active Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)
