    It’s been a grand length of absence prior to me getting back into the world of Pokémon TCG and over the past month or two I’ve been rediscovering the world of collecting, competitive play and casual league nights. The various elements that have changed over the years give the game more depth and strategy requirements. Pokémon now have more HP, we have the EX Pokémon available that bring next level ferocity to a deck, and trainers also now include things such as tools and stadiums.

    When I started playing again my main desire was to attend some tournaments. Pokémon League nights offer a great environment to play casually and trade but they lack the sheer volume of opponents and the thrill of attaining a prize. Upon researching decks and cards that were tournament legal I had noticed the cost of singles are far higher than in my youthful days of the early millennium. Some Pokémon EX cards can go for as high as $40.00 and even the uncommon card Pokémon Catcher, a staple in almost every deck, can fetch $15 apiece. Recently though, a new build of deck has emerged in the competitive world and it can be put together for a fairly modest price.

    Sigilyph is a basic psychic Pokémon from the set Dragons Exalted with 90hp, 1 attack, 1 ability and a retreat of 1 colorless with weakness to psychic. It’s the ability of this Pokémon that makes it formidable against heavy hitters like Darkrai and Landerous. Safeguard reads, “Prevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokémon by Pokémon-EX”. This simple ability can completely disable some of the decks currently in competitive play which focus on using EX’s to win the game and has placed 1st in various tournaments around the world. The deck focuses on 4 Sigilyph and several Mewtwo EX as the versatile counter to your opponent’s non-EX Pokémon.

    The deck uses your standard trainers to search out cards; Professor Juniper, N, Skyla, Ultra Ball, Computer Search and Level Ball. It also uses the Skyarrow Bridge to reduce Sigilyph’s retreat cost to nothing so that you can retreat without sacrificing energy. The most expensive card in this deck is Pokémon Catcher, a card that allows you to switch your opponent’s active Pokémon with one of their benched Pokémon of your choosing. This will help keep their EX Pokémon active when battling Sigilyph, and can bring out their non-EX Pokémon when you have Mewtwo EX active. The deck also makes use of Crushing hammer and Enhanced Hammer to discard your opponent’s energy, slowing them down further. You can substitute in other various trainers in varying quantities such as Tool Scrapper, Eviolite to protect your Sigilphs, Energy Switch to move your energy around on both attackers as well as Pluspower to help you with killing blows. I would also recommend Super Scoop Up to provide potential healing for your damaged Pokémon.

    In the end, this deck can be built for less than or close to $100.00 and utilizes the creative use of non-EX Pokémon in a powerful and clever way.

    Deck List

    2 Mewtwo EX (Next Destinies) 54/99

    Alex Khanin, a regular here at Troll did a fantastic job at PTQ: San Diego hosted by Above and Beyond. He was kind enough to share the elite deck with us. Take a look! Khanin commented that the deck needs a better plan against Tron. Ghost quarter and surgical is a possible plan but maybe something else would be advised for the board.
