    Anyone got a good decklist for Alolan Ninetails that works after rotation? I think Guzma will combo well with aqua patch when Burning Shadows is legal. See if you can use any other cards from the new set!

    Here is the decklist I use now:

    Are you looking for people to change your deck list for after rotation? Or for people to post their own Ninetales post-rotation builds? In any case, I've been running Ninetales for a bit now and have had some success with it.

    In any case, for your build I would do the following:

    - Dragonite EX (Not really sure what this card does for you besides using the ability, but you run two Rescue Stretcher anyways and you want to save your DCE for Ninetales)
    - 4 VS Seeker (Obviously removed from rotation)
    - 2 Rough Seas (Same as above)
    - 2 Lysandre (Same as above)
    - Pokemon Ranger (Not sure what this is used for outside of getting around opposing Glaceon EX or Jolteon EX. Only running one going forward makes this thing way less effective because you can't pull it out of your discard pile anymore and it's very situational)

    + 1 Alolan Ninetales (the NON-GX that's coming out in Burning Shadows)
    + 1 Remoraid
    + 1 Octillery
    + 3 Guzma
    + 1 Sycamore
    + 1 N
    + 1 Brigette
    + 1 Choice Band

    Decks are going to have to start running thicker supporter lines, hence why I maxed the Sycamore and N to 4 and added a second Brigette just in case one is prized (which tends to happen to me). Octillery is the best draw support Pokemon in the format after rotation. I've been using a 2-2 line and it's much more consistent. The new Alolan Ninetales completely walls EX/GXs which can buy you some time and/or help win you the game. I don't think 2 Choice Band is enough so I added a third.

    Hope this helps!

    The Dragonite was experimental (I'm going to take it out, probably replace it with Special Charge later on). Thanks for your input, I think a 2-2 Remoraid/Octillery line is a good Idea onward!

    A 1-1 remoraid octillery line is not good enough, if your octillery is prized it will make things tough. 2-2 is a must it really helps having that octopus out there
