Well, your selection of Pokémon is certainly good. Though I don't like Sunny Castform; Castform cards are only seriously good when you have three or four different Castforms in a deck. It's much like Deoxys.

What I don't like is the fact you have only Fire Pokémon in there. If you have it, I suggest Magcargo from EX Unseen Forces. Take out two or three Fire Energy and switch them with Fighting Energy. Of course, only do this if you have the Magcargo in the deck, and I would suggest one or two Magcargo and two Slugma.

Your list for the Trainer cards is all over the place. Sort it out. You have some fairly good ones in there, as well as some useless ones. Lady Outing is a waste of space if you have only one or even two types of Basic Energy in your deck. A complete waste, get rid of it. Team Magma Schemer...better things to waste a Supporter card per turn on. You've only one Team Magma's Pokémon in there.

Ultimately...any water-type decks and you're down. You need counters. If I was playing with that deck I'd add a few Lightning Pokémon in there. Maybe some Manectrics, a Plusle-and-Minun duo perhaps.

It's good. But it has some massive flaws. 6/10.

Also Cipher the DX Magcargo is much better.

ive made some changes to it trainer wise, but ill be buying a starter deck to get some newer trainers since i just got back into the game. By then my deck will be much better and i will have the cards to make it more than just a fire deck, im considering using fire/electric. Thoughts?

Fire/Electric? EX Trainer Kit 2. It's awesome;,it has cards from sets that aren't legal in DX-on, but ARE legal if in the TK2 print! :D Arcanine from FRLG. Get. It. In. There. Also, plenty Fire and Electric Pokémon, and even (if you want them) a few Psychic Pokémon.

Is there a website to look at the expansion symbols and compare them to my cards to see what are legal and whatnot?

PokéBeach scans have all the symbols you need. Any more questions, Question Thread in the main TCG forum please.

Don't jsut use cards of the same type beause they are the same type, use cards that work together (dx magcargo and dx ludicargo) also if you post a deck please put duplicates as # of card theen card name not the card name 3 times, it makes for easier reading.
