    So you need hitmonchan and then hitmonlee to attack first before using hitmontop. That kinda stinks.

    I know it is mathematically unlikely, but I have to laugh at the auto loss possibility.

    Contrary Malamar would be Slowbro's nemesis or auto-loss, shy of Garbodor...

    Hitmontop is interesting and could work with Marshadow Gx as a pivot...

    Or

    Combine Porygon Z for a turn 2 sweep...

    1)Slowbro is risk attacker! Normally victini should work here (i hope that you can reflip the coin if you have 3 tails and victini)
    And 1/64 to lose is HIGH but is enought reson to risk it! I mean if you go 6 times in a game(basic attacker vs Non GX deck) you need at least 6 attacks to win so 1-(65/66)^6= 9% and if you need more attacks more risk. But with 120 Hp in Stage 1 you may lose anyway against non Gx decks

    But at least if you are behind and lucky you can win vs Gx decks. is so funny anyway

    The spread 60 is fine i mean we have decks to try split damage but this attack is really very specific,

    *documentary voice* And here we see the wild Slowbro, mocked and humiliated. It will show them in time, however. It will show them all...

    I don't think people here realize that if you use Victini to re-flip, your odds of losing on the reflip are not 1/64, but 1/8... It's 1/64 if you only reflip on triple tails and you're looking at the probability of losing on each attack. If you reflip whenever you don't like your result, your odds of losing are 1/8 because you are stuck with your final result.

    With vaporeon gx and naganadel, this will be an slower, but very much stronger and much much bulkier blacephalon.
    If you decide to retreat with that item which heals your water mons for 30hp, surely you'll have a long time alive
     
  13. EXCELLENT CARD. This will be great with the new Blastoise.

    Not quite the same but the core mechanic of the main attack, as mention already, is a stronger Blacephalon. I'm a fan. I'm just worried if all the shuffling of water energy back into the deck would completely brick your future draws.

    Yea well, lets not forget since Blastoise is a stage 2, you need to input the Stage 2 engine as well. then you need an extra draw engine to get back the water energy you shuffled back into the deck, while still having to discard the energy for Naga. This is going to be bricky w/o future support. But at least Crasher Wake might be live all the time and you can cut down on the energy cost since you can recover them back

    You smell wrong. Nag is energy ftom discard blastoise is shuffle water from pokemon into deck. Not very good combo. You would have to have a reliable way to discard 2 to 3 energy a turn. And making sure u get those energys each turn.
    Sure during set up use ultra balls or treasuees aleays discarding energy , but just how easy would that be? What lady turn 1 hope u have 3 treasures discard 3 energy. Attach 1 to blastoise(squirtle atm) . Turn 2 lady again attach 1 to warturtle . Use treasure get 1 nag out. Use ultra ball get 2nd nag out. Use stadium get 3rd out. Turn 3 use lady again attach water to something then ultra ball 2 for blastoise. Now you have 11 energy on board. Dealing 270 with choice for 3 turns. Yes math adds up but can u pull that all off?
