This is a deck I have been practicing with as of late.  It uses solid Base Pokemon with status effects (F. Magmar and Electabuzz) to dish out early damage/disruption and uses Arcanine's 80 damage Take Down as the finisher.  Here's the latest decklist I've been using...

4 F. Magmar
4 Electabuzz
3 Ditto
3 Growlithe
2 Arcanine

4 Bill
3 Oak
4 Defender
3 Scoop UP
3 Lass
3 Gust of Wind
2 Nightly Garbage Run

11 Fire
8 Electric

Defender is a fun twist to this deck, as it protects Electabuzz from any damage he may deal to himself as well as protects from opponents attacks!  This also works on Arcanine's Take Down!

Hope this helps...have fun!
