    Hi all, long time, no see. ;-)

    After a worlds 2017, we had te stop playing for a while, but starting again soon. YAY!
    To get new cards, we're playing the new pre-release Unbroken Bonds.
    So a little help with building decks with these cards after that is welcome.
    We're a family of 4 players, so more options for decks are welcome!

    Which decks could be a good idea so we know what to trade e.g.?

    If you are trying to use mostly Unbroken Bonds cards then I would suggest Buzzwole & Pheromosa GX of Gardevoir & Sylveon GX. (You can search for Japanese lists) Both are somewhat easy to pick up. I would say Buzz & Phero are med-high budget whereas Garde & Sylveon is low-medium budget. If you want the deck easiest to pickup I would suggest Pikachu & Zekrom GX decks. Though I would say Pikarom is high budget as easy pickup decks usually are. For a budget deck I would suggest Gengar Omastar. It's cheap, Easy to play but it's not that great. The best deck regardless of other factors would be Gardevoir & Sylveon in my opinion. Buzzmosa is a close second though.

    I think that focusing on fire is probably your best bet for an easy to play deck - you'll need some cards from earlier expansions, but there's a ton of fire support (and fire Pokémon) in this one. Old fire decks include Charizard and Blacephalon GX; in this expansion you get Blacephelon (non-GX) as well as Heatran GX. All benefit from a lot of fire trainers in this expansion.

    Thanks for the help! Let's see what the draws will be on Wednesday! Pre-release day! :D
    Any must play cards at the moment? Like Shaymin-EX in 2017?
    The decks don't have to be easy to play, but low budget is welcome. We are a family of four players, so we need to build four decks. ;)

    My youngest liked to play Nightmarch
    My oldest likes to play water decks (Greninja)
    My husband... he just likes the color purple and a 50/50 chance of winning :)
    And for me... I just like an easy cheap deck with the cards that are left over. Kangaskan was my favourite once.

    I agree with you. I originally thought reshzard would be mediocre against other decks but in reality it kills everything.
