Standard N's Resolve/Garchomp-Giratina GX Ideas

    Basically it's a bad ADP.

    Giratina and dragon talon are there to get some damage counters on to get the 160+80 damage attack out. Playtested it a few times and it's underwhelming. Not expecting it to be high tier at all but wondering how and if it can be improved.
    Thought about adding the CEC Blacephalon as well instead of Giratina but think it would move a lot slower.

    I don't know if it can be something you like, but what about trying to use Roxie and Weezing in order to spread some damage? You can grab Weezing with Mysterious Treasure, discard it by Roxie, draw and spreading.

    I run a Garchomp-Giratina deck too, BUT I use a Malamar "engine" for energy attachment-acceleration. Have you considered/tested this approach?

    In general, my initial assessment of your list is that you rely upon those N's Resolve for energy attachment acceleration, but can also "miss" energy attachment sometimes. Any non-energy card would be discarded. So, your deck appears to be too inconsistent.

    Also, since you're running a Dragon - Psychic deck, cards like Mysterious Treasure, Pokémon Communications, Acro Bike, etc. should be leveraged more.
