The aim of this deck is to utilize Mr. Rime's Ball Juggling attack in order to swing for massive numbers on the second and third turns of the game, oftentimes laying waste to even Tag Teams and VMAXes in a colossal Feat of Strength. Of course, to do so, the power of Zoroark-GX's Trade must be used to make an otherwise Faire Game, well, a little more Rigged. Use Exeggcute's Propagation to feed Zoroark's endless hunger for cards to acquire your combo pieces. Heed closely the Wicked Whispers of Ball Guy in order to set up, thin, or, most importantly, throw your opponent into the Dunk Tank! Finally, use Renowned Performer Guzma in order to go for the throat (that is, benched Dedennes, Crobats, Leles) and capitalize on your opponent's Cascading Disaster!

This deck is a far cry from many of the one-note archetypes in Expanded. Why deal a fixed quantity of damage when limitless power is at your disposal? Scream in delight as even the likes of ADP crumble under the staggering force of Mr. Rime! Embrace the frightening power of this Carnival Clown! For this is a Deck of Lunacy! Chaos! MADNESS! At the Darkmoon Faire!

Yeah... that's the sort of thing that I do have in the back of my mind. Although Xurkitree-GX is probably the more prevalent threat, the idea of getting locked out of the game does warrant some consideration. Sure, maybe a copy or two of Silent Lab could help with this sort of thing (I guess Lab also beats people trying to shove Mew EVO lol), but I'm not quite sure where to put it.

Here's some other things that I might try to squeeze in. I probably won't be able to fit them all, but they're up for consideration:
  • Some way to recycle Pokemon
  • Special Charge
  • New "Hand Block" Milotic in Chilling Reign
  • "Heal Block" Mimikyu VVI (Is playing around Mallow/Lana even worth it?)
  • Some way to recycle Supporters (1-2 VS Seeker, but with such heavy Zoro draw, perhaps Pal Pad is worth consideration?)
I'm just not really sure what to cut. Maybe some of the "Balls" could be cut in favor of techs (for example, Nest Ball and Cherish Ball are not particularly useful outside of the setup phase). Thoughts?
