  1. I’m already putting this together. I love budget decks!
    I think my daughter could pilot this deck in her weekly events as well. Double the value there.

  2. Me too. Shortly after starting TCG my son moved on to VGC.

    This deck has potential to be really good. Totally truing it out tonight!

  3. Umm if this deck doesn’t enter the conversation for worlds, it absolutely proves everything that I’ve ever said about the meta.
    I’ve said this about ten times in the past couple of days, but I’m saying it again: Shrine of Punishment is making GX Pokemon unplayable. One of my opponents even played Sky Pillar tonight, and I still beat them.
    Here’s the list I used to go 6 W 0 L tonight:

    * 2 Oranguru SUM 113
    * 1 Skitty CES 120
    * 1 Delcatty CES 121
    * 4 Murkrow UPR 71
    * 4 Honchkrow GRI 79
    * 4 Tapu Koko PR-SM SM30
    * 1 Tapu Lele PR-SM SM45

    ##Trainer Cards – 33

    * 1 Lusamine CIN 96
    * 1 Rescue Stretcher GRI 130
    * 4 Ultra Ball SUM 135
    * 4 Acro Bike PRC 122
    * 4 Shrine of Punishment CES 143
    * 4 Nest Ball SUM 123
    * 4 Copycat CES 127
    * 4 Cynthia UPR 119
    * 2 Field Blower GRI 125
    * 2 Guzma BUS 115
    * 3 Mallow GRI 127

    ##Energy – 10

    * 4 Counter Energy CIN 100
    * 4 Double Colorless Energy FCO 114
    * 2 Psychic Energy SUM 162

    You can probably use Fairy Lele if you don’t have Psychic Lele, since you’ll almost certainly be trailing when you use her. But either Lele is better than Spiritomb…. Oh wait I just realized that you’re using the SLG Spiritomb. Oh yeah that’s fine too, but you definitely want to incorporate Magical Swap in somehow.

    Not sure about Delcatty or the Mallows, but Mallow can sometimes synergize well with Oranguru. But you definitely want 4 Shrines and a Lusamine to get at least one of them back.

    But awesome idea Mike, you hit it out of the park on this one! And believe me NOBODY is talking about this. One of the meta prediction videos I watched today pooh poohed Shrine. There is no doubt in my mind that it is completely broken, and all theorymon around GX decks should stop until we figure out a way to counter shrine.
