    With Unified Minds only a month or so away, I've taken a real liking to quite a few Pokemon in the set, one of them being Terrakion for the attack Cave King.

    Pokemon (8)

    4 Terrakion UNM
    3 Reshiram & Charizard GX
    1 Marshadow and Machamp GX

    TSS (39)

    4 Cynthia
    4 Green's Exploration
    4 Switch
    4 Acro Bike
    4 Tag Switch
    4 Welder
    4 Pokegear 3.0
    2 Cherish Ball
    2 Fire Crystal
    2 Fiery Flint
    2 Buff Padding
    2 Shrine of Punishment
    1 Heat Factory Prism Star

    Energy (13)
    4 Rainbow Energy
    7 Fire Energy
    2 Fighting Energy

    Terrakion – Fighting – HP140
    Basic Pokemon

    [F][C][C] Cave King: 50+ damage. If all of your Benched Pokemon have damage counters on them, this attack does 150 more damage.

    [F][F][C][C] Rock Smash: 110 damage.

    Weakness: Grass (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 4

    The goal of the deck is to setup into a Terrakion T1 to be able to start attacking as soon as I'm able. ReshiZard makes for a great secondary attacker when using the Welder engine while Marshadow and Machamp are great at setting up revenge kills on PikaRom if I don't have a Terrakion setup or the conditions for Cave King aren't met.

    Def a viable option. You should run the new tag switch as you could potentially hit for 200 on turn one if you were able to hit a welder, rainbow energy to a bench ReshiZard, then tag switch the rainbow to terrakion.

    Yoooo my brain read it as basic energy and not just outright energy, I'll make some room for it. Should I run 4?

    Some Options:

    -I'd run your own shrine so that you can get that guaranteed damage on Reshizard. It also allows you to weaken those TTGXs that reshizard struggles to OHKO.

    -Maybe test out a buff padding on terrakion because in this metagame TTGXs are only doing around 150. With buff padding you are avoiding the OHKO from them. With no field blowers you have a much higher chance of buff padding staying on.

    I would run a full set just to up the chances of a turn 1 200. That's really the selling point of this is that it can one shot a PikaRom turn 1

    You should be running Viridian Forest in this deck to search out the fighting energy. You can turn 1 Viridian or Shrine, then Green's for turn 2 for viridian or Shrine and you should be guaranteed to be set up (assuming you hit a welder on the turn you don't Green's).
