    Here is my very bad Alolan Ninetales Deck that lacks attack power, I need help and cannot spend any money (I may be able to trade for some cards so still suggest card swaps). I need tips for strategy and tips in general. I also need a faster way to get energy from my deck to my Pokemon. Thank you!

    Shuckle and aqua patch are for energy, (I need a few rainbow energy for Shuckle). Marshadow is for the ability, Alolan Sandslash is for the ability too. Keldeo GX and BUS Alolan Ninetales are for GX/EX counters with ability. Main damage dealers are GRI Alolan Ninetales GX, Gyrados GX, Lapras GX, and M Blastoise EX.

    Before we do get into it. Which format are you trying to play in? Expanded or standard? Because your title says Standard but the majority of your cards can only be played in expanded.

    It's standard. Can you tell me what cards aren't allowed in standard? I didn't know. Still need tips. Thanks! :)

    Standard-legal cards right now are all the cards from Ultra Prism onwards, inclusive.

    If you are going standard, sorry to say but you'll have to build an entirely new team as only a few of your cards are standard legal. Shuckle LOT, Great Ball, Rotom Bike, and Crushing Hammer. Everything else on your team has rotated out :/ Sorry mate

    Some others are legal, like keldeo and gyarados gx, lana, hau, water energy, energy retrieval, and pokemon fan club.

    Well, the whole deck, just about, needs replacing to be legal for standard tournaments. But assuming you are playing with friends and they don't mind, general deck building tips are in order. I'd suggest getting somewhere between 8 and 12 good supporters. Some decks use specific sets of supporters like the" tag call" engine, but it never hurts to have the best general draw supporters for your format. In standard, Cynthia, professors research, Lillie and marnie would all work. In expanded add N to that and sycamore and juniper can fill in for research.

    If you need to keep the deck mostly intact for budget reasons, see if you can trade for alolan vulpix GRI, as they have the beacon attack which helps greatly with set up (though they too are no longer standard).
