    • Lillie (1)

    Look at the top 6 cards of your deck and put 2 of them into your hand. Discard the rest of the cards.

    • Pokegear 3.0 (4)
    • Jesse and James (2)

    Supporter

    Each player discards 2 cards from their hand. (Your opponent discards first. If a player has no cards in their hand, they do not discard any cards.)

    You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).
    Energy (9):
    • Fighting (5)
    • TAE (4)

    This deck is supposed to be used as an Anti-TTGX deck, by utilizing Zygarde as an energy accelerator onto Aerodactyl. To get the energy in the discard for acceleration, my current solution is Jessie and James or Hapu, since we lose Ultra Ball, but I would love another solution. I am also counter-acting the negative effect of Research Lab by ideally using it on the turn I use Blue's Strategy, which lets me draw up to 8 after I use it.

    Edit 1: Noticing how the deck couldn't really have an obvious answer to energy denial, I swapped the omastar line for the new Archeops line, which will provide a more reliable single energy backup attacker.

    Zygarde is mainly there to serve as a way of accelerating energy on to my benched Aerodactyl/archeops. I've also found that at least in terms of basic gxs like blacephalon, it sets up numbers really well when diancie is on the bench, since the boost to both does 180.
