  1. TheAquaPiplup I have an unhealthy obsession with Glaceon-GX


    Hello and thank you for opening this decklist. I have my first league cup this Saturday and would really appreciate if I could get recommendations for my deck.
    Below is the decklist.

    20 Pokemon
    1 Ditto Prism Star LOT 154
    2 Zoroark-GX SMP 84
    2 Tapu Lele-GX GRI 60
    1 Slugma CES 23
    2 Zorua SHL 53
    2 Eevee SUM 101
    2 Eevee SUM 101a
    1 Magcargo CES 24
    1 Oranguru UPR 114
    3 Glaceon-GX UPR 141
    1 Alolan Muk SUM 58
    1 Marshadow SHL 45

    29 Trainers
    4 Cynthia
    3 Professor Elm's Lecture
    3 Guzma
    2 Lillie
    -1 Professor Kukui
    +2 Acerola
    4 Ultra Ball
    2 Energy Loto
    2 Bodybuilding Dumbbells
    1 Field Blower
    1 Rescue Stretcher
    1 Pal Pad
    1 Escape Board
    1 Switch
    1 Choice Band
    -1 Weakness Policy
    2 Devoured Field

    11 Energys
    7 Water Energy
    4 Double Colorless

    Now I believe that I should have an Acerola, Shuckle-GX or maybe a Durant or girafarig but don't know what to take out of the deck.
    The reasoning for Acerola is because it's useful in general.
    Shuckle-GX would be in there for shrine decks, buzz, zoroark, granbull. However I believe that it's inclusion is not as necessary as Acerola.
    Durant would be there as a stadium removal and as mill and I would replace a devoured field with it.
    Girafarig reason for inclusion would be to counter unown hand and malamar or blacephalon

    If there are any questions regarding the deck, feel free to ask them.
    I will try to respond to your query as soon as possible.

    Hi AquaPiplup! I have never played this kind of deck, so I can't even try to purpose an useful fix.
    Aren't there too many energies? Maybe I'd play a couple of Water Energy less and I'd add two Aqua Patch (to full charge a just evolved Glaceon).
    Moreover, aren't two Zoroark too few? If you prize one of them, you almost loose your consistency device. I think an optimal ration between Glaceon and Zoroark should be 3 - 3 or even 2 -3. But, I repeat, I'm totally ignorant about this.
    I'd remove the mono Kukui: Glaceon doesn't reach any good number with it, and in order to hit 130 with Zoroark you have Devoured Field.
    Girafarig can be cool indeed, and I would remove Marshadow for it. Marshadow fill your already filled up bench (consider: two Zoroark, a Lele, and Magcargo).
    Let me know if I said a not so stupid thing at least! :)

    I tried the deck quite a bit. I can say I was definitely wrong about Aqua Patch, it is useless. But I can ensure you: your Zoroark line should be 3. You should also consider a mono Judge ;)

    I had a judge instead of a marshadow but marshadow was easier to find and combo of of
    I only need 2-2 line because the other spaces go to techs like Alolan muk, ditto prism star, weakness policy
    Also if I were to remove cards for another Zoroark line which cards should it be

    After going to my first league cup I decided to make these edits because in most cases having 1 card doesn't guarantee a win against a certain matchup in this case metal type decks.
    -1 Weakness Policy
    +1 Acerola

    Also I would like to add a kukui or choice band but don't know what to remove.

    I agree with Missilistico. A line of zoroark will make the deck much better and more consistent. To make space for it I would drop 1 water energy and the oranguru
