What about Puzzle of Time? Can 4 Puzzles replace stuff like Super Rod, etc? (Or did it only see play because of Battle Compressor?)

Can you do an updated Standard video with the new cards? And if any of them are worth using/ adding to a deck. I would really appreciate it. (btw you basically taught me how to play. So thank you for that.)

Jelco Leys says:

This isn’t a tutorial, it is just you going over all the staples, not telling your viewers when you play a certain amount of the, or when to include a certain card. Also, town map and delinquent aren’t staples.

Aldo Castillo says:

Are you ok? You look in pain while you speak xD

Antech says:

Hey i love your videos and built my own deck. When I want to use it for online it says it will have to remove some specific cards. why is that? is it some part of the rules? maybe they arent allowed in play?

I’m new in the Pokemon TGC community and I have lots of questions but let’s start with one.

What do you mean by “standard”? Is it a way to play? Does it mean there are others?

ShinThanatos says:

why not use double rainbow or double dragon? they are all special so it wouldn’t hurt, right?

Briana Stull says:

I run a Fairy deck, Xerneas Break and M Gardevoir. I run four Fairy Garden’s, should I still add switches and float stones?

ToasTDingS says:

I built a Deck with all stapels in it, Named it “1.Shape” and everytime I want to built a deck I copy this deck and delet the card I didn’t need an add the specific card to the deck. I highly recommend doing this, safes a looot of time an stress

bruno santos says:

This helps me a lot. I don’t have any tradable packs, but I have a lot of coins from winning theme deck versus games. I’ve been trying to cobble together a standard deck but I only have single copies of EX’s that don’t work together
