    Looking for some feedback on my Zoroark/Banette post-rotation deck. I think it has a lot of potential but feel like it can be optimized, especially the Supporter/Item counts.

    My main issue here is that a well timed Xurkitree completely dominates this deck. You literally have no option but to scoop if they play down Xurkitree GX. Yes, you can Guzma around it and they might fear a regular energy coming in, but with none in deck, in a Bo3, you're done. Even if they lose game 1, then their entire focus becomes getting Xurkitree out and walling you. And sure, Xurkitree GX isn't exactly the most common card played, but Ray CAN play it. Beast Box CAN play it. And we're getting even more lightning support in November, meaning it's going to see play then as well.

    Don't get me wrong. I've been trying to test this deck as well. And there are other issues. But that is my biggest concern besides not being able to keep up with the other Zoroark decks out there. But maybe I'm just crazy. Ho hum indeed.
