I just made an Erika deck for the east coast sts. Please help make any
changes to it that would make it better.

Pokemon 18
3 E. Oddish (gym challenge)
3 E. Gloom (70HP)
3 E. Vileplume
3 E. Dratini
3 E. Dragonair
3 Scythers

Trainers 15
3 Professor Oak
3 Erika Maids
3 Computer Search
3 Celadon City Gym
3 Gust of Wind

Energy 27
24 Grass

I've played this deck some and its done ok winning about half the games I
played, although its hard to test it when no one else wants to play with the
15t/3c format :( Thanks for fixing my deck (or at least reading down to


Well, Scott G. happened to pick one of my favorite lines, Erika's Vileplume!  Let's see if we can make it work for the STS in New Jersey. 


Hmm... the biggest problem I see here is that you run VERY low on basics. I'm adding Rocket's Scyther, as he is a great staller while you set up.  That gives you 12 basics, the bare minimum I'd recommend for this format.  Otherwise, you look fine.


I'm going to try to give you a little more to work with here.  Erika's Maids is a broken card in an Erika intensive deck!  By having such, I think we can reduce your Comp Search by 1.  Item Finder works really well in this environment. Gust of Wind is also essential, but let's cut one to make a little room. I think you can do with a single Gym, no problem.  Switch is great for an emergency, like if your 'Plume gets gusted up with no energy on it.  And let's add a Nightly Garbage Run to get any Pokemon back that end up in your discard pile. 


Slightly adjusted for room.
