Flash Flood Warning! — Expanded Blastoise and Turbo Water

I think of Blastoise when Water is talked about in Expanded. That’s actually not all, I have been trying out some wacky new decks using the type and today I’ll be sharing them with you. Blastoise / Archie's Ace in the Hole is still strong first and foremost, it even gained Misty and Lorelei from Cosmic Eclipse. Misty and lets you reuse Palkia-GX‘s Zero Vanish GX, obliterating Turbo Dark decks in short order. This is the best use I’ve got out of the reuse of a GX attack, although I admit that Magikarp and Wailord-GX for Towering Splash GX spam may have some merit, I just have not got this combo off in practice enough to have a greatly informed opinion. If nothing else, playing Misty and Lorelei in these Water decks to come is worth it just for the multiple-time Zero Vanish GX loop; Turbo Dark can almost never win against that kind of disruption.
