I must admit, I kinda like the theory behind this deck.  Clefairy/Clefable is a really good way to dish out some good attacks for a really low cost.  Electabuzz is a super solid Pokemon for it's cost.  Fossil magmar is another good solid attacker for a low energy cost.  Thus far, it seems we have a theme of low energy attacks.  Let's roll with this.

For the Pokemon, jack the Fairy/Fable up to 4/3.  This will insure you see it.  Let's drop the Golbat line - it's not really needed.  Adjust numbers a little bit, and you get the following ratios:

4 Clefairy
3 Clefable
4 Electabuzz
3 Fossil Magmar
14 Pokemon Total

Energywise, we have now dropped a color and are running real low and tight.  Let's look at the following ratio:

8 Fire Energy
7 Electric Energy
15 Energy Total

Yes, this is REAL low, but we will have no problem with it after trainers.

With trainers, Energy Search and Pokemon trader are the only two I disagree with.  Energy Retrieval and Night Garbage Run will work great in here, as will Bill.  Try these out:

4 Bill
3 Professor Oak
3 Item Finder
3 Computer Search
3 Gust of Wind
3 PlusPower
3 Night Garbage Run
2 Energy Retrieval
4 Energy Removal
3 Scoop Up

31 Trainers

Give this deck a try, and see how it works for you.
