This is my current build for M Manectric-Ex XY-on 2016
The deck plays quite nicely, here is some reasoning behind some cards;
4-3 Manectric Line - I want to open Manectric-Ex as early as possible.
1 Hoopa-Ex - This makes setting up much faster off a single Ultra Ball
1 Articuno - This is for decks with low hp or to finish off an Ex ( I go on the assumption I will flip heads 1/3 so I do not rely on this card. 1 head flip + Muscle band = 80dmg which is normally enough).
1 Regice - This is for Ex heavy decks and can act as a nice non ex hitter (e.g. with muscle band, can ohko Raichu / Vespiquen and make a 7 prize game)
Items are kind of standard;
1 Ace Trainer - It is a good card but I feel that it could be replaced, maybe with an extra AZ?
2 Trainers Mail - This doesn’t do a great deal imo, its good for searching for supporters and spirits links but could be replaced with something else.
Typical issues with the deck could be starting with a Pokemon with a high retreat and struggling to find the AZ or Switch. Super Scoop Ups could be added and could be the correct move however I have bad luck and do not hit the heads when needed, would rather have consistency.
The general aim of this deck is to apply early pressure (when possible) with M Manectric-Ex and power up more Manectrics on the bench. The ideal situation is to have at least 2 M Manectric-Ex all set up with possibly an alternative attacker such as Articuno or Regice and constantly switch between the attackers while healing as much damage as possible with the stadium.
I welcome everyone’s opinion on this deck as I would like to make this as consistent as possible.
