Wassap Souper,

Hey Souper. I was looking at some of the polls earlier (Which Archetype Do You Play?) when I realized that i have never played an Archetype before. So I decided to make a RainDance deck. I have built the deck, and have used it only twice. So far, it has a 1-1 record. So can you please help me?!?

Articuno and Gyrados are for Electric decks. I have no problem getting new cards, so feel free to totally dismantle my deck. Thanks for reading this.

Raindance as an archetype has been recently declining. With the new sets that have come out recently, Raindance has lost a lot of its original strength as one of the original Big 3 Archetypes. It's still a good deck, but doesn't monopolize the environment the way Wigglytuff and Haymaker do. Energy flow and Pokecenter make a great combo in Raindance, one of the few contributions from recent sets.

The Trainer ratios might need work, playtesting will tell you that. I really wanted to add a couple Bill, but with such little room I opted for more potent drawing cards like Oak and Com. Search. If playtesting shows problems getting Blastoise out quickly enough, try to squeeze a couple Bill in, cutting the Flow/Center combo if necessary or if it doesn't seem to be helpful. Good luck!(17) 4 Squirtle 4 Blastoise 3 Magikarp 3 Gyarados 3 ArticunoPok閙on(23) 4 Prof. Oaks 4 Com. Search 3 IF 3 Energy Flow 3 PokeCenter 2 Gust of Wind 4 BreederTrainer(20) 20 Water EnergyEnergy
