What decks are there that are good in the current meta and can counter the Jolteon-EX/Glaceon-EX lock in the current standard TCG format?

Any deck that runs two lysandre and four vs seeker can outplay a J/G lock. If they just keep a single pokemon out then you will need target whistles as well. Another option is just find some way to stall them and deck them out.
I'm sitting on a somewhat 50-50 meta/rouge deck for Nats... Can't share but of your list of top decks mine has a 90-10 matchup against that whole list. But a 70-30 against Vileplume.Hi @ThePokemonSensei
The current best decks in the format (BDIFs) are:
Out of the above, the one that probably best gets around the Jolteon-EX/Glaceon-EX "lock" is Greninja. Greninja BREAK can use multiple Giant Water Shuriken to get around Crystal Ray, so Glaceon-EX isn't much of a problem. Furthermore, running a couple of Jirachi (XY-P) gives you the option of discarding the opponent's DCEs and, potentially, breaking the "lock".

Hope that helps.

Manaphy + Rough Seas can stall them out for deck out. Articuno can sometimes use Lysandre + Prior Damage to take multiple prizes (up to 3).It depends. The version I play has no evos outside of a 2-2 Octillery line. It's only real hope against Jolteon is to put it asleep with Articuno to break the lock.
i think it's a good comeback: zygarde has the right hp to fit the role!I know there's a bit of hype around Fighting Varients, does anyone think it will be a top tier deck?
