Fine I'll tech your deck, geez, I have a life too. Enough bugging me on AIM, you've given me what, a couple hours to do it, and I was like at work during that time... remember I am doing this at no cost to you, so you better appreciate this. :/

Oh boy. Nail Defensive/Energy...
You've got a couple things going right, but a lot of things going wrong. Namekian is strong, but without the main cards like Namekian's Strike this won't go far. There are a lot of cards lately that destroy Namekian, and one like this without the great cards is doomed if it runs into a lot of the right tech.

First off, you are a hero, and that cuts down on cards like Vegeta's Jolting Slash and Android 14, which Namekian needs. Nail is ok; the new PAT helps him a bit, and the auto energy for 5 or 3 is nice, but his problem is the fact his other levels fail him. Neither level is that great, and even his level 1 is overshadowed. With Saiyan 1-3 Goku still around he's a bit of a risk. Once leveled he will have a minor problem surviving.

Nail isn't a regen character; that's Slug's job. Cards like Namekian Regeneration are misleading. It isn't a good card at all. You are better off running Dragon Blast with Namekian DBs and Make A Wish.

The problem with this deck is it is very unfocused. You've got a nice card in Piccolo's Power Ball that needs to be upped to 3. But you've got a mix of bad cards and good ones of different ideas. That and way too many physical blocks (bad ones like Piccolo's Physical Defense too) in an energy environment.

Your Sensei deck needs work as well. There are some extremely good cards that you could run like A Hero's Heart is Strong (in many situations like Krillin), Black Scout Maneuver, Breakthrough Drill, etc.

You've just got cards like Namekian Defensive Stance that are just plain bad. I mean, even making your deck full of endurance like with Namekian Finger Blast would be an upgrade.

You've got a long way to go. I mean, compare Pikkon's Leg Catch and Goku's Quick Dodge with Piccolo's Physical Defense and you know you have a long way to go.

Good luck...
