The Bog is absolutely brutal if you go first and manage to play it as the last card of your turn.

That Stadium is really strong. Not only can it allow you to hit certain breakpoints, but it'll be fantastic with Single Strike Morpeko in Standard! Expanded will also love it with gimmicky but deadly decks like Building Spite Spiritomb and Omega Barrage Torchic decks (the latter when paired with Hustle Belt).

Ah right, I kinda forgot about it since it hasn't been very accessible in PTCGO (at least for a reasonable price), so I was using Odd Cemetery in its place (which has its own benefits, allowing you to hit your own mons that were already on board with manual attaches, but in return not hitting psychic opponents). Though I suppose with PTCGL you can just redeem Magma's Secret Base now, and in real life the card is just over a dollar for lightly played copies.

At least it still stands that Morpeko in Standard will really appreciate it, though I imagine you'll run a mix of Bog and Odd Cemetery.

this is kinda cool. probably not meta but it should be a viable rouge/tier 3 deck.
You hit for only one basic energy which makes it more consistent than the old gyarados (but the power creep have almost doubled the amount of damage needed to deal ohko's, and despite that gyarados was somehow bulkier than this). One thing Bisharp has that gyarados is actually zoroark so u could hypotheticly have 4 pawniards on bench when atacking (30*2*4=240 240+30 (belt)=270) but you still wouldnt take a ko on arceus without something extra.
now how do we get the stadium out consistently? Last time around we had trainers' mail. and either you have to clog out your bench and deckspace with inteleons (I would rather prefer 2-2 Bibarel for the low deckspace investment). if not, you would have to go with cramomatic and/or peony. which makes the deck seem to be a bit weak to me.

if we could fix that issue then you would have a consistent deck 1 prize deck that at a genreal level hits for around 150-210 that can reach up to 270+

Gapejaw Bog - basically Team Magma Secret Base. Helps opponent achieving key numbers. 4 Geodudes
Pawniard/Bisharp - cool concept yet Regionals deck-worthy. Cool you can do a lot like 1000 dmg, whatever. This is so impractical in some situations. 2/3-4

Bisharp is a deck right up my alley. With some Zoroark action, this could hit some interesting numbers, even if not terribly consistently. Should be fun to muck about with.

Funny thing is Old Cemetery is just Frozen City but no psychics

BTW, look at @ToineLay's tweet, and this Bisharp has some combos with Cherrim, Old Cemetery, and Zoroark.

But this combo is too iffy in the long run

does there exist any other cards that can put damage counters on the bench?
we have viv donphan but that will only be legal for 3 months with this. Alttough that could be a nice combo, you would hit for fighting weakness in the early game and late game ohko everything.

spikemouth is not viable as you need the bog stadium. but spikemouth could be a fifth or sixth stadium

and pawniard aint single strike to be compatable

If we have 4 benched Pawniards(let's say we've got a Bisharp with Zoroark)and all of them have 2 damage counters,we reach 8 damage counters and we're at a total of 270 with one Metal Energy.
Damn.
