With the new Shrine of Punishment stadium , I've been playing with this Malamar spread deck in PTCGO and had some good results (just went on an 8 game streak.....but that doesn't mean much because I like to play decks that are a bit terrible/inconsistent but fun to play so I probably have a low rating).

Any thoughts on improving this? It is currently standard, but post-rotation it loses quite a few cards (brigette, ninja boy, poke puff are probably the worst losses), so any thoughts on how to make it SUM-on?

I like this version a lot versus the dce/counter-energy version since you don't have to worry about enhanced hammer. And although it isn't ideal, you can at least try to run it as a non-spread deck with the necrozma attacker if you end up against a tough matchup for spread (eg. Stakataka, Mr. Mime tech).

I've also thought about teching in A. Muk for basic ability shut off, but this list probably doesn't have the space (bench or otherwise) to fit it in.
