  • 2 Dusk Mane Necrozma GX (beatdown)
  • 1 Dusk Mane Necrozma (beatdown)
  • 1 Solgaleo Prism Star (beatdown)
  • 3 Silvally GX (beatdown)
  • 3 Type: Null (evolution)
  • 2 Tapu Lele GX (search)
  • 2 Registeel (beatdown)
Trainer (32):
  • 4 Professor Sycamore (draw)
  • 1 Bridgette (search)
  • 3 Guzma (control)
  • 3 Cynthia (draw)

Energy (14):
  • 4 Double Colorless Energy

Start with either Registeel or Type Null and set up with Bridgette. Search out Type Null and two attackers. Accelerate with Turbo Arm, Turbo Drive and Beast Ring. Use Solgaleo Prism Star to recover energies. Silvally GX provides free retreat to all Basic Pokémon which makes the deck real flexible. The deck can achieve ohkos with Meteor Tempest and Rebellion GX. Dusk Mane Necrozma non-GX handles Safe Guard Pokémon and also consistutes an awesome cleaner.

Mush. Up!
Since Magearna EX provides additional support with its ability and can one-shot Gardevoir GX with easier energy requirements, have you thought about it?

Hi Vitiel,

Thanks for the review. With Max Elixir and ten Basic Energies it has not been hard to fuel a second Registeel on the bench to ohko Gardevoir GX with Choice Band. Once the opponent took two to three prize cards Cobalion is also an excellent counter to Gardevoir GX. Since both of them only give up one prize I tend to favor them over Magearna EX. I considered Magearna EX over Kartana GX but the latter one has a better ability.

Hi Phototoxin,

Fire Memory was released in SM4+. It seems reasonable to assume that it will be released either as a promo or as part of SM5 in the USA.

Hi jacktropolis,

Thanks for the review. Personally I like to have another bulky attacker that can at least hit for a decent amount of damage. Celesteela GX fits that bill. Another option would be Kartana GX but I prefered Celesteela GX thus far because of the more diverse weakness and the resistance to Fighting. With the release of SM5 the deck will receive an update.

Hi folks,

Updated the list with the new cards released this week. Would like to fit one Pal Pad but not sure whether it is needed and how to fit it into the current list.
