    Hey everyone, I'm a retired player who used to play a lot of Zekeels and Rayeels so this deck seemed like it'd be a perfect style to get back into the game. This is the first list I've come up with to get back into things.

    Pokemon (14)
    4-3 Malamar
    2 Ultra Necrozma GX
    1 Dawn Wing Necrozma GX
    1 Necrozma GX
    2 Tapu Lele GX
    1 Deoxys 67

    TSS (33)
    4 Cynthia
    4 Guzma
    2 Lillie
    1 Copycat
    4 Nest Ball
    4 Mysterious Treasure
    4 Ultra Ball
    3 Choice Band
    2 Beast Ring
    3 Altar of the Moone
    1 Rescue Stretcher
    1 Switch

    Energy (13)
    3 Metal
    1 Beast Energy
    9 Psychic

    As a malamar player myself (i just play regular necrozma, but their close enough) I think it's important that you always have at least one non ex gx attacker, like Mimi Kuhn from guardians rising or lunala Prism star (which can also accelerate energy). I would also recommend going up to 4 guzma, since they help retreating and getting prizes. I also think you should have an update energy recycle system, to get energy back. You may also want a third or even fourth altar of the moone, but that's just my personal preference. I would also recommend using other supporters instead of Sophocles, but I haven't really had enough experience with the new supporters, so do what you like I guess.

    For what you should take out, the Marshadow is really only needed in regular Necrozma decks, since they have trouble KOing Zoroark GX.

    Hi KindFawn,

    Nice deck. Consider these modifications:

    - 1 Marshadow GX (not needed in this variant)
    + 1 Deoxys SM7 (nice one-prize attacker)

    - 2 Sophocles (not that great since hand sizes will generally be rather low)
    - 2 Tate and Liza (two are sufficient)
    + 4 Cynthia (best draw supporter remaining)

    - 1 Pal Pad (not needed that much)
    - 1 Acro Bike (three will suffice)
    + 1 Choice Band (needed to hit numbers)
    + 1 Altar of the Moone (stadiums will become more common)

    Personally I would also make these modifications but those are a personal perference:

    - 1 Dawn Wings Necrozma (one will be sufficient)
    - 1 Malamar (with the search item count you will find them)
    + Necrozma GX (nice alternate attacker with a more offensive GX attack)
    + Tapu Lele non-GX (damage counter rearrengement works well with Necrozma's GX attack and Ultra Necrozma's GX attack)

    Hope this provides some initial assistance.
