Top Modified Decks

December 1, 2006

In no particular order, I consider these the top decks in modified at the moment. Most of these decks are popular all over the country, so none of them should surprise you.

Mewtrick (Manectric ex/Mew ex)
The loss of Rocket's Admin. was a devastating blow to Mewtrick, as your opponent's large hand becomes a loaded cannon ready to go off as soon as you are forced to stop using Disconnect. However, Mewtrick has gained a critical stadium card, Crystal Beach, which improves not only its Delta match, but countless more. With so many decks running similar engines and Pokemon, Mewtrick no longer is required to play 5 basics to counter all of them, and now has room to fit more trainer cards.

Delta (Raichu d/Exeggutor d)
Relying on the Holon Engine (Holon's Castform/Holon Transceiver/Holon supporters), Raichu's Zzzap seems to hurt every deck but your own, conveniently spreading damage without taking prizes. This perfect attack will give you great board control and simultaneously allow you to respond with Scramble Energy once your Raichu d is KO'd. Exeggutor d uses Split Bomb with the same idea, and also has a Delta Circle attack, which works perfect with the 8+ delta Pokemon in your deck.

Metanite (Dragonite d/Metagross d)
Another deck that was strong in modified last year is very strong this year, too. Being the most consistent multiple Stage2 deck in the history of modified, Metagross d & Dragonite d use the Holon Engine and have great synergy that can overpower any deck. Metanite relies on Windstorm to avoid taking losses to decks that play multiple Cursed Stone and/or Cessation Crystal.

Banette ex
With the release of a better Shuppet, Banette ex has become a consistent and fast deck. While it runs into some problems from Scramble Energy, Banette ex has the ability to swarm, and can be combined with countless other Stage1 and basic Pokemon.

Arcanine ex
While overall a superior attacker to Banette ex, Arcanine lacks a basic with the Ascension attack. This will make Arcanine a little less consistent than Banette, but overall, a more devastating attacker, with better HP.

Sallygross (Salamence d/Metagross [DX])
Another deck relying on the Holon Engine, Sallygross is consistent, and Metagross [DX] uses Super Connectivity to maintain an attacking Salamence d, which can oone hit KO's almost every popular Pokemon in this format.

Flygon d/Salamence d
Like Sallygross, Flygon/Sally uses the Holon Engine too. Except this time, Flygon d is providing Delta Rainbows to maintain an attacking Salamence d. The advantage of Flygon d over Metagross [DX] is that it has lightning resistance, which works great against Metanite. This deck also has the ability to run Flygon ex d.

Good luck at Cities!
