So now that Roaring Skies is out, naturally I’m here to rant and rave about the latest and greatest in obscure rogue decks. This time my focus is on the new Shedinja. This deck is a blast to play, as it really catches people off guard with how hard and fast it hits.
First- My current list!
4 Mew EX
2 Floette (FLF - Flower Veil)
1 Jirachi EX
3 Muscle Band
2 Silver Bangle
3 Repeat Ball
2 Ultra Ball
3 VS Seeker
1 Computer Search
2 Startling Megaphone
1 Sacred Ash
1 Professor’s Letter
4 Frozen City
Basically, the name of the game here is speed. Ideally, you want to get a Mew EX and a Shedinja out as fast as possible. I’m considering running more Wally for the sake of more Turn 1 Shedinjas, but that’s your call.
Once you have Shedinja on the bench, Mew EX can use Hopeless Scream (50 damage for every damage counter on him). Attaching a Rainbow Energy while Frozen City is in play will put 3 damage counters on Mew, allowing you to do 150 damage for one attachment. Muscle Band pushes this up to 170 and you can always attach another energy for more damage counters if you need more KO power.
Obviously, leaving a damaged 120 HP EX active isn’t always going to be the best idea, so that’s why it’s a good idea to attack with Shedinja himself as well. Floette grants Shedinja an additional 20 HP so he can make use of the Rainbow+Frozen City combo for an easy 150 damage as well.
Honestly, I"m even considering dropping a few Mews and allowing Shedinja to be the main attacker of the deck. Gotta test more before I make that call.
But yeah- this deck hits HARD and it hits FAST, and for all you devoted Seismitoad haters, it pretty much eats the 'toad alive thanks to weakness.
So what does everyone think? Anyone else playing this deck right now? Any variations? We can’t let the various Rayquazas steal all the Roaring Skies thunder here!
