Wow! I really like this deck. It has alot of thought put into it, and a nice
strategy. On to your fix...


No promo Arcanine. Just base set ones. I'd exchange the Magmar's with
Chanseys too. They're better for stalling, and you have enough offense, so
Magmar isn't needed. Use TR Drowzee instead of base set too. Actually, I
don't really like Hypno in this deck very much. It takes up too much room,
and there's not enough Energy.


This is the deck's weak spot. Instead of using Mr Fuji for getting the
energy back, use Energy Flow! It gets it to your hand, and you won't lose
the Mewtwo either. Scrap the rest of your trainers and start over. Something
along the lines of... 4 Computer Search, 4 Professor Oak, 3 Bill, 3 No
Removal Gym, 3 Plus Power, 3 Scoop Up, 3 Gust of Wind, 3 Scoop Up, 2 Nightly
Garbage Runs.


This is WAY WAY too much. Drop your Psychic to 8, the Fire's fine though.
You need 4 DCEs too.


3 Growlithe
3 Arcanine
3 MP Mewtwo
2 Chansey
3 Computer Search
3 Scoop Up
3 No Removal Gym
3 Professor Oak
3 Plus Power
3 Bill
2 Gust of Wind
2 Nightly Garbage Run
15 Fire Energy
9 Psychic Energy

Thanks for the deck, and nice job!
