I got tired of playing the same tier 1 decks/making Ex dependent decks, and just made some of the most random things I could. They're all fun to play with, especially the monkey deck. It actually inspired a guy to make their own haha.
Kinda interesting, but it would be cool if you posted how they all fit together and work. Cause some of them I haven't a frosty clue Qwaa
That would help wouldn't it? Sorry. :P Off to the spoilers!
Barrel full of monkeys
Ok, so the monkeys from Next Destinies have have collect (that take 1 energy of their respective type and draws 3) and Stadium "___" attack which takes one energy of their type and on colorless that does 30 damage initially. But if there is a stadium in play, it does 30 more damage and has a secondary effect. Simipours' Stadium Wave makes the defending poke fall asleep; Simisears' stadium burn, burns the defending poke; and Simisages' Stadium Drain heals 30 hp from Simisage. So it's sets up pretty quickly, with their low attack cost. And if one is taken out another can take it's place right away.
Onwards to Victini
It's centered around Druddigon's Dragon Tail attack, deals 80x each heads (flip 2). Victini is it's main supporter, if I pull 2 tails I can reflip for at least a 1-1. Emolga's CFF can summon Swablus, Victini and extra Druddigon to the bench and it has free-treat if i need something to switch in and out without hassle. Fight song Altaria is of course for the extra 20 damage to OHKO or 2HKO almost anything. And Dunsparce is a new edition for its free-treat and double draw, if/when I need it.
Fun with Delcatty
Rayqauza from Dragon's Vault has Shred that isn't affected by poke-powers or affects (like eviolite or bouffer) and needs 1 electric, 1 fire and 1 colorless to use. I use Delcatty's energy gather attack to set it up asap. The 30 damage it deals is a bonus. And even though Shred already does 90, I have Altaria, just to be a d*ck. :P and again Emolga for CFF.

Which is true, you don't need EXs, although they are nice safety blankets to have around. I don't like using EXs in general, don't ask me why. For whatever reason, I choose not to use them.
I agree, its not the best T/S/S line up, but I still make it work. If you have any suggestions, like I said I'm open for any and everyone that comes my way.
Take your pick my friend. You can shoot ideas for one deck today, then expound on the other two at a later time. Personally, I like the monkeys because it got the most response out of it. A few players who have been on TCGO for a bit are like "lol, wtf a monkey (in a good way)." And a good amount of rookies were stunned at the set up speed of it.
So you kinda get where I'm coming from then. EX's have their pros and cons, and its up to an individual to use them or not.
