So the basic strategy is to go second and get a turn one Archies, and go from there. The Tate & Liza is included to prevent out late game deckout. For decks that bench a bunch of Shaymin and other small stuff you generally want to attempt to get a towering splash gx from Magilord(you use the Giratina's ability to one shot the Shaymins). The Palkia GX is included to wreck turbo decks. The Kingdra GX allows you to one shot anything. I 75% of the time get the turn one Archies in my opening hand.

Possible changes.

I play one Crobat because a friend of mine plays turbo birds and he usually will take all my Shaymin for game, so that could be switched out for another Shaymin.
Alolan Sandslash GX could be put in and something else removed.
Misty& Lorelei could be added so I could use my GX attack more than once.

I have run into a few problems though if your opens manages to set up Garbodor or Alolan Muk this deck struggles a bit. If anyone has any suggestions or comments it would be greatly appreciated!
