    K so I was looking through the sets to pick one to make a deck for. I was going to go off of the prettiest set symbol (real deep thought process, I know) but then I saw Platinum Arceus. The very first set I ever bought. I decided to make one for that set. Furthermore, I saw that the actual theme decks were for two Arceus forms, but the Grass one wasn't one of them. Since that's the one I pulled, I'm making the deck around that. Furthermore, I have to make the second type Lightning for the express purpose of including ma boi Shinx, my namesake. I call it, "Leaf's Judgement" Your welcome for not calling it, "Judgement Swagger."

    NOTE: All cards are from the Arceus set. If I give a set number, it means there are two versions, and that is the one I chose.

    Pokemon: 29

    2x Arceus (grass form)
    2x Pikachu
    3x Electrike 62/111
    1x Manectric
    1x Zapdos G
    2x Tangela
    1x Tangrowth
    4x Shinx SH12 (I don't care it's a rare. This is the one. It's not the one I pulled, but it's the one that made me want to make Shinx my username. If having this invalidates it, then please just pretend it's the other one)
    3x Luxio
    2x Luxray
    2x Bagon 52/111
    1x Shelgon
    2x Cherubi
    2x Buneary
    1x Lopunny

    Trainers: 8
    2x Beginning Door
    1x Bench Shield
    2x Professor Oak's Visit
    1x Energy Retriever
    2x Ultimate Zone

    Energy: 23
    15x Water Energy
    8x Lightning Nergy

    Judgement doesn't always have to be harsh. Sometimes, judgement rules for peace and prosperity. For you, that is. Arceus and Lopunny make sure your Pokemon are always in tip top shape, setting up perfectly for Tangrowth to come in and devour the competition! Zapdos makes sure the opponent won't soon forget the name Team Galactic, and leads the attack with an array of other powerful Lightning types. Manectric shows that sometimes the best attacks are the simplest ones. To top it off, Luxray slowly builds up on the bench, protected by Bench Shield, and then swoops in at key moments to do massive damage! With powerful trainer cards that make it easy do swap between Pokemon, Leaf's Judgement will leave no doubt that even the mightiest of foes are still at the mercy of Arceus' judgement!

    Also, I have a question: If I were to make lists for battle arena decks, would those be invalid? I was thinking of trying to write up lists for the canceled Landorus vs. Genesect decks.

    Here we are! Sorry for the (very late) Week 2 Results!
    This week's Best Deck award went to @RiverShock's Gooey Slush deck!
    And the Best Description award went to @Mr_Lockehart 's "Team Galactic C0mmander Series: Mars" deck!
    Both will be available for all to see in the Theme Deck Hall of Fame shortly!

    The deadline for the (very late) Week 3 competition is midnight PST on 1/7/2018. You can call it bumping the thread, but I don't think it is.

    You know... It's been bothering me how non-standard the previous deck is (even though I kinda like the concept), so I felt I should do a second Hidden Legends deck.

    The elements combine to conjure a vicious storm! The Storm Blade theme deck will barrage your foes as the elements combine. Palkia's Aqua Blade will bring a downpour of destruction on your opponent combined with Raikou's Electric Ball! Feraligatr causes a big splash while Manaphy keeps your pokemon fighting! With the power of a tempest, the Storm Blade theme deck is sure to wash away those you face.

    (I know the deck has a lot of holos and rares, but Shining Legends doesn't really have a lot of common/uncommons to begin with since its a miniset)

    I've opted to go a little closer to the Forbidden Light Theme Decks' composition (dropping the Pokemon count to 20 rather than the 24 of past sets), though 20 energy is too high, so I'm sticking to 18 energy in favour of 22 Trainers.
