    Very helpful thread here...thanks for all the insights. Both me and my 7 year old son are new to PTCG (1 week in) and very excited about getting going with building some custom decks...we went through a trainer set and currently playing with one of the Battle sets, but now ready to build our own decks and be able to play in some tournaments. Knowing my costs will be doubled, it is an easy decision to not splurge and put lele's in his decks, and I'm 50/50 currently on if I will do that, so this thread has given me some great ideas. A few posts back, it was also helpful to see some potential sets for a younger kid to play and continue to learn with.

    So I would love any continued feedback on how I should go about building a deck for my young son and myself as well...

    Great community here...glad I found this forum!

    Thanks!

    Of all the decks that I've added here, (for your 7 year old, or the both of you) I would suggest Alolan Ninetales GX, as it's very easy to pick up and play. I'm sure if you asked most of the people on this thread, they would probably say the same thing.
    It could take some practice to get competitive with, but none-the-less it won't take too much devotion to nail the strategy you want to use.

    I would say to spend about $3 on a couple of marshadow SHL because they are are some cheap replacements to tapu lele.

    That sounds good...another thing I didn't mention, was we are currently living in Beirut. So there is just one local shop that just started carrying PTCG stuff (so selection is small and a bit pricey, with no singles)...and you can't really get things mailed here that easily. So we have some visitors coming from the US in about 3 weeks, so I am going to have to do some online shopping and have it all nailed down for them to bring over to us.

    How is there a league in your city if there is no card shop? unless you are just planing to play against friends, I don't understand

    There is a card shop that has just in the last 3-4 months officially started carrying Pokemon...they told me they are planning to do official type tournaments in the coming months...but as of now, its just players meeting up there to play.

    I was playing around with the Alolan Ninetales GX deck, which only has 57 cards so you can add 3 cards. I found a Pokémon that works well with this deck: Burning Shadows Kingdra. You can combo it with A-Ninetale's Ice Blade attack by using Brine (90 damage to any Pokémon with damage counters on it) to create a deadly bench-hitting menace, and if you're really feeling sadistic you can put Tapu Koko in there somewhere and have it Flying Flip a whole bunch of weakened Pokémon and win the game. You can also use Tornado Shot to hit the opponent and damage something on the bench; you do have to discard an energy, but you can Aqua Patch the next turn to get it back. Plus, it only asks for one Water energy for its attacks, so it's easy to set up.

    So fill the remaining three cards with a Kingdra line:

    +1 Horsea BUS
    +1 Seadra BUS
    +1 Kingdra BUS

    Then make the following changes:

    -1 Remoraid BKT
    -1 Octillery BKT
    -1 Alolan Vulpix GRI

    +1 Horsea BUS
    +1 Seadra BUS
    +1 Kingdra BUS

    To get this:

    * 2 Rayquaza GRI 106
    * 3 Alolan Vulpix GRI 21
    * 3 Alolan Ninetales-GX GRI 22
    * 1 Glaceon-EX FAC 20
    * 2 Manaphy-EX BKP 116
    * 1 Remoraid BKT 32
    * 1 Octillery BKT 33
    * 2 Horsea BUS 29
    * 2 Seadra BUS 30
    * 2 Kingdra BUS 31

    ##Trainer Cards -

    * 4 Professor Sycamore XY 122
    * 2 Professor Kukui SUM 128
    * 4 Aqua Patch GRI 119
    * 2 Ultra Ball SUM 135
    * 2 Brooklet Hill GRI 120
    * 3 Guzma GRI
    * 2 Rescue Stretcher GRI 130
    * 2 Field Blower GRI 125
    * 3 N NVI 101
    * 4 Choice Band GRI 121

    ##Energy - 13

    * 9 Water Energy 3
    * 4 Double Colorless Energy EVO 90

    It's also cheaper than the original since you have less BKT Remoraid/Octillery to get (in this deck, you really only need one).

    Hey, @GekkisaiDaiNi can you try and get this thread pinned because its annoying when i cant find it (Jk it would be nice for new players to be able to find this thread so they can build their decks and not fail in tournaments.)

    oh. Yeah, thats an issue.
    @Jadethepokemontrainer can you get this thread pinned for reasons stated above?

    That makes more sense as jade is a mod of this thread, though we may want to clean up this thread first (I am trying to set up one basic formatting for the thread and transfer it to that, but it was hard with the spoiler glitch)
