Let’s start things off with a deck list.
3 M Rayquaza EX (RSK 61/108)
3 Rayquaza EX (RSK 60/108)
4 Reshiram (RSK 63/108)
2 Shaymin EX (RSK 77/108)
1 Hydreigon EX (RSK 62/108)
1 Lysandre’s Trump Card
4 VS Seeker
4 Mega Turbo (RSK 86/108)
4 Ultra Ball
3 Rayquaza Spirit Link (RSK 87/108)
1 Escape Rope
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Computer Search ACE SPEC
3 Scorched Earth
4 Double Dragon Energy (RSK 97/108)
The objective of this deck is to get a M Rayquaza EX powered up and hitting for 300, taking OHKOs as often as possible.
M Rayquaza EX has a massive 230 HP and a beneficial Delta Trait “Wild”. Delta Wild reduces all damage from Grass, Fire, Water, and Lightning types by 20, effectively giving it a resistance to all of those types. Its attack, Dragon Ascent, deals 300 damage for a painful [R][R][R][L][C], with the added negative effect of discarding 2 Energy. Usually, an attack this expensive would be a death sentence, but in this case we have some help.
Our first method of energy acceleration we have is Double Dragon Energy (DDE). DDE is a Double Rainbow energy with no downsides except being restricted to Dragon Types. We will be running the Dragon type Rayquaza EX for this reason. In case we can’t quite get our Mega out, we can still attach DDE to our basic.
Our next method of energy acceleration is Mega Turbo. Mega Turbo allows us to attach one basic energy to one of our Mega Pokemon from the discard. Cards like Sycamore, Ultra Ball, and Computer Search can be used to dump [R] into the discard to accelerate to M Rayquaza EX. Scorched Earth is a counter stadium that also grants us a method to discard [R] and gain some additional draw power. One copy of Professor’s Letter is included to give us more [R] in hand to discard.
Our final method of energy acceleration is Reshiram. With Turbo Blaze, so long as Reshiram is active, we can attach one [R] from our hand to one of our Dragon Pokemon. Normally, this would only yield one additional attachment per turn, but with 4 switching cards and Hydriegon EX with Scorched Earth giving us free retreat, we can potentially get multiple attachments per turn. Reshiram can also serve as a counter to Safeguard Pokemon in a pinch.
For draw support, we run the traditional 4 Juniper/Sycamore and 4 N. Additionally, we play 2 Shaymin EX. Shaymin EX’s ability allows us to draw until we have 6 when we bench it from our hand. One copy of AZ allows us to pick up a Shaymin EX and use it again. Scorched Earth, as previously mentioned, also nets us some extra draw power.
Lysandre is here to pull up a benched EX for an easy 2 prizes and Lysandre’s Trump Card is useful if and when energy starts to run low.
We should try to start with Reshiram and get a Rayquaza EX benched ASAP. Try to get two attachments turn 1 (Via Turbo Blaze and a manual attachment.)
Next turn, try to get your partially powered Rayquaza EX Mega Evolved and attach the remaining energy necessary. Either play a switch or use Hydeigon’s Dragon Road to retreat into M Rayquaza EX and take the first KO.
On subsequent tuns, try to use Mega Turbo and manual attachments to keep M Rayquaza EX going. If you have any additional ways to attach energy, start powering up a second Rayquaza.
Hopefully you will run out of Prizes before the deck runs out of steam.
Good luck everyone, and most importantly, have fun.
