Standard Aerodactyl

Discussion in 'PTCG Deck Garage' started by The Last Shaymin, May 13, 2019.

  1. ok this deck one shots some things

    pokemon: 5

    1 Volcanion
    4 Aerodactyl

    4 Unidentified fossil
    4 Fossil excavation map
    4 Greens exploration
    4 Ultra Ball
    4 Lillie
    4 Wishful Baton
    2 rescue stretcher
    2 choice band
    3 Cynthia
    2 Welder
    1 guzma
    1 Switch
    1 Firey Flint
    1 Heat Factory <>
    3 Shrine of punishment
    1 Power Plant
    1 fire crystal

    4 TAE
    9 Fire Energy

    so you guarantee the volc start, you always go second unless you are playing against a single prize oneshot deck (granbull, lost march) and you use the attack of volc to get energies onto a fossil. After that you chain wishful batons and take knockouts. once you cannot chain batons you then use your TAEs and win

    List looks good!

    Maybe a one of ReshiZard?

    That could be a good idea, but I think he’s going for the confirmed T1 Volcanion, so with a 50% (I’m not good with percentages, feel free to prove me wrong) chance of not starting with Volcanion...

    That would nerf aerodactyl's attack if he draws it in his first hand, considering volcanion is his other basic. Also losing it can cost him 3 prizes in the singles race.

    I would up the Volcanion lines for better mulligans, as well as add some disruption, once aerodactyl gets going he can hit a dead road fast if he runs out of energies, or dead draws. Wish batons can be shut down with field blower or Lysanders lab before attacking...

    Seems to me you should be running DCE's as well you could put 3 fire energys on 3 different fossils and then from there use DCE's to finish. Not saying ditch the Triples but DCEs would definitely help

  6. yeah exactly
    There really is not enough space to up the volc lines, although i was thinking of adding some red's challenge to get TAEs or something. If you have any ideas as to what to cut, that would be great.
    This is actually a really good idea. Maybe if I do this I should also put in some EXP shares so I can get the energies spread.

    Edit: add ditto prismstar, and cutback on cynthia's or swap them for tate and liza.

  8. I would not add ditto prism, although I thought about it. It ruins your volcanion start, and you cannot green's after you bench it.

    Tate and Liza are a worse draw supporter than cynthia, and I already run a switch so I should be fine.

    Love this deck concept.

    You already have energy acceleration in the form of Welder. Don't need all those Batons. Also, you can't attach a Baton to something that already has a Choice Band on it.

    I know you have 3 wonderful stadiums to complement your deck, but you could also -1 Baton to throw in a Sky Pillar for the PikaZek match.

  10. The welder is really just a backup plan, or its your win condition against single prize decks. The Batons make chaining attacks much, much easier, and running 4 means you can maybe get 2 or 3 chained attacks without having to welder again or use a TAE. A sky pillar is a good idea, I should playtest some games against pikarom to see if it needs it or not.
  11. ninetales1234 Biscuit Taste-Tester


    IMO the TAE is your backup plan if the Baton doesn't work.

  12. they are both a backup plan then.

    oh yeah on the online, this deck hit 34 mulligans. do I get a prize?

    I mulliganed 14 with Baby Blowns:D
  14. ninetales1234 Biscuit Taste-Tester


    Yeah, really! All the "challenges" they have on the game like "do 800 damage with X type Pokemon", they should have a "Ridiculous Amounts of Mulligans" challenge that awards you with tickets or something.

    No skill in that.

    They want to encourage skill based play.
