Articuno EX

I really like the potential that Articuno EX has, so I put together a list just last night and play tested it a bit.

Pokemon:
3 Articuno EX
3-1-3 Dusknoir
2 Kyurem
:12

T/S/S:
4 N
3 Cheren
2 Juniper
4 catcher
3 Rare candy
3 eviolite
2 pokedex
3 ether
3 plus power
3 colress machine
2 Level Ball
2 Ultra Ball
2 Communication
:36

Energy
8 Water
4 plasma energy
:12

The main idea for this deck is to attack with Articuno EX and paralyze. The active pokemon cannot do anything unless switch, full heal, rush-in, etc., is used. Next turn Dusknoir moves energy around to benched pokemon to KO all pokemon at once. If against PlasmaKlang or QuadSigilyph, Kyurem then comes into play to spread damage with Dusknoir.

After play testing for a while, I noticed this deck has very low consistency. So any constructive criticism would be nice.

You know what that means. Moar Supporters!

-3 Plus Power
-1 Either; The third Either doesn't do anything without the third Pokedex. I'd just stick to Colress Machine personally.
+3 Skyla
+1 Juniper

RE: Articuno EX

This deck would see a huge help from Skyla, being able to search for the items you NEED on a turn, and in a deck with so few pokemon, you can afford the other juniper Mora suggested above. If you can get your hands on an ACE SPEC, any of the big 4 (once Plasma Storm actually releases); Dowsing Machine, Computer Search, Gold Potion, and Scramble Switch would benefit this deck. Another card this deck will need is at least 2 copies of Switch. Without it, once your Dusknoir gets catcher'd, which it will, you're sunk. A third switch might even be needed.
So, on top of Mora's suggestions:
-3 Eviolite
-1 Colress Machine
+1 ACE SPEC (of your choice)
+3 Switch

Playing:
Virizion/Genesect (w/Deoxys&Lugia) Goes hard
PDL
KingGatr
Darkrai
Flygon is back <3
