I have a mostly Team Rocket deck I like to call "Deadly Ground."Here's the
list followed by the strategy:

3 Grimer (fossil)
2 Dark Muk
3 Diglett (TR)
2 Dark Dugtrio
3 Scyther
2 Lickitung
4 Super Energy Removal
3 Gust Of Wind
3 The Bosse's Way
3 Nightly Garbage Run
3 Rocket's Sneak Attack
2 Item Finder
2 Prof. Oak
10 Fighting Energy
11 Grass Energy
3 Double Colorless Energy

The strategy is to use Lickitung to stall while I build up Dark Muk and Dark
Dugtrio. I would then make Dark Muk the Active Pokemon, using its
status-inflicting damage and increasing  the opponent's Active Pokemon's
retreat costs twofold with the Pokemon Power. Even if my opponent pays the
increased retreat cost, he/she would still face the potential of taking 20
damage upon retreating, courtesy of Dark Dugtrio on the bench. Scyther, of
course, is my heavy hitter should the need arise. I think it's a pretty solid
deck but can't help but feel that it's a bit lacking in the Trainer
department. Could you tell me if this is so? Thanks!


The deck has a few rocket cards that are pretty unnecessary.


I have no problem with the pokemon so i wont touch them.
Trainers are where i'll focus my attention instead.


SER: a nice combo with dark muk.

GOW: three is pretty standard.

Boss's Way: soooo many better card searchers than this guy (i.e. computer

NGR: for a deck with so many pokemon and energy, combined with the lack of
card drawing, this card is mostly useless. thankfully the 2 oaks i'll be
adding in will warrant at least a couple of these.

RSA: these are great in a really competitive tourney deck, but being that
this deck really isn't a tourney deck, i'll take these out for another oak
and one more computer search.

Item Finder: these is fine.

Oak: have i ever taken any of these out... ever?

Hrm, we seem to have one extra spot. How 'bout we take out three random
energy and, with the other open slot, put in four plus powers.

So ummm lemme find that final listing:

Pokemon (17)

3 Grimer (fossil)
2 Dark Muk
3 Diglett (TR)
2 Dark Dugtrio
3 Scyther
2 Lickitung

Trainers (19)

4 Super Energy Removal
3 Gust Of Wind
4 CPU Search
2 Nightly Garbage Run
2 Item Finder
4 Prof. Oak
4 Plus Power

Energy (21)

9 Grass Energy
9 Fighting Energy

Hope that helpses
