Thank you for your time!

Well that's your problem. If you want a good Namekian deck you need to have a bit of cash. The card engine, Namekian's Strike, isn't too hard to get with the big release at Worlds. It will be out in a few short months, so get it then.

Use the WGS Piccolo 2-3 and CS 4, and if you have it the level 5 (not totally necessary). Physical Blocks are Ducking Techniques(2-3) and Pikkon's Leg Catches(3). And the omnis. Dash, Gohan's Kick, Namekian Shield Destruction, and MAYBE Namekian Shuto should be your Physicals. Sidestep is terrible. I would go with Energy Ricochets, Goku's Energy Absorption, NEA, and of course Namekian Energy Deflection. Oh my gosh I found someone running Namekian Energy Ray. >_< Cool looking card, but that's its only merit. The only energies I'd run from your selection are Focused Blasts, Quick Blasts, Eye Beam, Good Advice, and maybe Piercing Beam (if I was desperate). Heat Seeking... nice, but only does a measly 4 life. I'd go with good stuff like Vegeta's Energy Focus, Piccolo's Power Ball, Android 19's Energy Burst, Vegeta's Jolting Slash, and Supreme Kai's Ki Push. At least you can find cards like Jeice Flash Attack if things go really bad. Just don't run stuff like Energy, lower your opponent's anger 1.

What... no Trunks Energy Sphere? >_< You are a hero... what... Piccolo works best as a villian. But if you want hero, fine, just no Jolting Slashes, FIR, A14, A19's Energy Burst, etc. Vegeta's Surprise Defense and Mother's Touch are WAY outdated in being decent cards.

Keep Expectant Trunks, Hero's Lucky Break, and Vegeta's Quickness Drill (maybe). Ditch the rest of the nons. You need stuff like Piccolo and Heroes Gather and Krillin's Concentration for insane searching ability. Your deck should be packed with a bunch of utility Combat cards like Stupid Tricks, A17 Smirks, POTD, Battle Pausing, etc so you can't go wrong.

And you of course need more Locations/Battlegrounds. 1 Winter Countryside, 1 Z Sword Plateau, and 2 City in Turmoil work for me.

I wrote an article about a good Namekian deck before. Get some ideas there, even though it is outdated. Hopefully I helped at least a tiny bit.
