    im curious as to why you play darkrai instead of fairy garden? just thinking youd want a counter stadium and it does the same thing as darkrai without taking up a spot on your bench.

    I found aromatisse/Mewtwo ex to be quite potent. Many people have used it against me in online and it’s main goal it to manipulate mewtwo ex so he can get knockouts every turn while conserving other energy on he bench so if he gets knocked out, he won’t loose more energy than nessesary.

    The problem with a fairy toolbox like this is the following question: How does it beat Rayboar or Blastoise decks that can OHKO your active and all energy off of the field? This was the biggest problem that hydreigon decks faced and have since been a tier 2 deck. I do not believe that using the max potion-move energy off and heal method is going to be in a tier one deck in this format.

    IMO fairy toolbox decks need to do the following in order to be successful and overcome the big OHKO decks:

    Stream non ex attackers that can 2 hit KO their big EX pokemon. With the fairy support that is currently available, you can get enough energy on the field by t2-t3 to stream Bouffalants, Xerneas (non EX), safeguard pokemon, ect.. You could splash in a Xerneas EX and a Mewtwo EX or Yveltal EX to hit hard, but you wouldn’t want to give up more than 1 EX prize if you were going this route.

    I also believe Slurpuff or Keldeo and Fairy Garden would be a better route to go than Virizoin and a bunch of special energy.

    Tell me where i’m wrong Kyle. I always enjoy your responses to our comments.

      Well, the first thing I should point out is that this is not a well-refined idea at all. The cards just came out, and this is my first attempt at trying something new. We also don’t know what decks will remain popular for the new set, so it’s difficult to know what to prepare for.

      If you want to beat Blastoise or Emboar, my suggestion would be to play Palkia EX and a few more Safeguard Pokémon. All you need to do is Strafe and switch into one of them. Since those decks don’t run a lot of non-EX attackers, you can wear them down eventually. Suicune is especially nice because it can KO Reshiram and Delphox.

      I don’t believe the non-EX attacker route is viable. You can’t afford to lose three Energy on things like Bouffalant every turn. Even though you do get a little acceleration early on with Xerneas, you can’t get them back once they’re gone. You need to try to run huge HP Pokémon to try to retain your Energy in play. Granted, this is becoming more difficult with Muscle Band and Yveltal EX in the format.

      I’m not a big fan of Fairy Garden because just about every deck plays Stadium cards. Rotating between attackers is an essential part of the strategy, and you can’t do that if your opponent counters your Stadium. Since you can take advantage of all the Special Energy anyway, it makes more sense to me to run Darkrai EX.

    Just a question: couldn’t you use Sigilyph for the same reason as using Suicune? I know it cannot OHTK anyone but it can be fetched with Level Ball (Suicune can’t).

    why no wigglytuff?
    balloon barrage is pretty ridiculous when teamed up with fairy transfer
    also the fairy stadium is really good too

    1. Kyle Sucevich

      Yveltal EX has Wigglytuff’s attack, but it’s even stronger. Plus, it’s a Basic Pokémon with 170 HP. Unfortunately, Wigglytuff is just outclassed here.

    im surprised no one has mentioned using a diance ex or m diance ex in their fiary deck its a good way to stop a heavy based ex deck
