    The Strategy:

    This deck is for a competitive tournament for my League next Thursday; the day my league breaks up for Christmas. So any help to make this more consistent and more powerful would be greatly appreciated. The strategy of the deck is to power up Raichu as quickly as possible with a Double Colorless Energy and a Muscle Band to attack with Circle Circuit for easy knock outs. The small Bats line is to add damage on hard to knock out Pokemon like Pokemon EX's or any other Pokemon that has more than 120 HP which is the maximum damage that Raichu's Circle Circuit can do with a full Bench with a Muscle Band attached.

    Deoxys and Shaymin are in the Deck for quick set up. 4 Deoxys so you have high chance of starting with it to it's Close Encounter attack: for 1 Colorless Energy to draw 2 cards even if you are going first. And 2 Shaymin-EX for it helpful draw that can be searched out with Ultra Ball. Faded Towns are included to whittle Mega's health so they can be more easily knocked out with Raichu and the Battle Compressors are here to discard Supporters to get back with VS Seeker when we need them most.

    I haven't tested this deck out much due to School being a thing and having to do Christmas cards and Christmas lists and all that jazz. But I'm really keen to get some help with this deck because I want to go competitive so please, critique away! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this post and I can't wait to hear what improvements people have for this Deck.

    first of all, add crobat
    I know this may sound like very basic, but it makes cards like AZ so much better.

    I would-

    +2 trainer's mail
    +1 shaymin
    +1 zubat
    +1 golbat
    +2 crobat
    +1 AZ
    +1 sacred ash
    +3 skyfield

    -4 deoxys
    -2 bridgette
    -1 psychic energy
    -3 faded town
    -1 professor's letter
    -1 lysandre

    The trainer's mail help you get everything out so much faster, and even 2 makes a worlds difference
    Hope this helps!
