  • 2 Basculin S6a (beatdown)
  • 1 Inteleon S1W (search)
  • 2 Inteleon S5a (enable)
  • 3 Drizzile S1W (search)
  • 4 Sobble S5a (search)
  • 1 Crobat V (draw)
Trainer (30):
  • 1 Adventurer's Discovery (search)
  • 2 Boss's Orders (control)
  • 4 Prof. Research (draw)
  • 4 Marnie (draw)
  • 3 Energy Retrieval (retrieval)

  • 3 Quick Ball (search)
  • 3 Level Ball (search)
  • 3 Tower of Water (retreat)
Energy (10):
  • 3 Rapid Strike Energy
  • 7 Water Energy

STRATEGY:

Start with either Inteleon V or Sobble. Make sure to have three Inteleon V and two Sobble on the battlefield at the end of the first turn. Next turn evolve Sobble into Drizzile and search for Adventure Discovery to evolve Inteleon V into Inteleon Vmax. Use Double Shooter to hit the bench and recover discarded [W] energy with Energy Retrieval. Attack with Inteleon Vmax and return the attached Rapid Strike Energy to your hand. Use Basculin and Rapid Strike Inteleon to clean the battlefield.

SPOILER:

Since this deck has heavy reliance on flipping a Rapid Strike Energy back to your hand, presumably, how do you plan on countering Marnie? Would you consider a 1-1 line of the new "Anti-Marnie" Milotic? If, so, what would you cut? If not, what is the strat for getting around it, or do you just let it happen? Additionally, they just revealed Duraludon VMAX has Aegislash EX's ability, do you think it's worth playing a Phoebe to get around it?

Hi John InCENAroar,

Thanks for the review. I would not include Milotic in this deck. If anything I would use Octillery instead since he is generally more usefull than Rapid Stike Milotic. The research that I did not include Octillery in this deck is that deck space is rather tight and I have no glue on how to squeeze him into the deck. At the moment I would take the risk of having to redraw Rapid Strike energy with my draw supporters which can be searched out with the Inteleon line. Since S7 has not been fully revealed thus far I am less concerned about it at the moment. However I am not that impressed by Duraludon Vmax thus far. There are several means to bypass it. You can also use [W] to fuel Inteleon Vmax's attack and return one of them to your hand each turn.
