Imagine my dismay.

It was a simple enough E-mail.  Guy had a wierd name but I figured I'd check his deck out. 

Started out innocent enough as I was scrolling down.  I started making mental notes... "hmmm, only 1 Mewtwo? Poor-mans Psychic deck... I can deal with that."

Then I made it to the trainers... "ooh, ahh...Computer Search, Scoop Up, Gust of Wind"

and then, abruptly, the bomb dropped....

3 Poke Balls and 4 Recycle??????  AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously folks, I cried so hard I shorted out my Keyboard! (I filed a claim with PoJo but he ain't returning my calls)

I can only say this so many times... I'm only gonna explain this one more time, nice and slow.

Read Recycle(go on, do it!)
Flip a coin.  If heads, put a card in your discard pile on top of your deck.

Now, what happens when you DON'T flip heads?


I'll tell you what... NOTHING!  That smells.  Smells Bad!  Smells really BAD!!

So for the love of Pete, gather up all those Geodudes, Shellders, and 50% nothing cards and NEVER PLAY WITH THEM AGAIN!  I can't afford too many more keyboards.  =(
