Searching Standard: Blissey V
Hello and welcome to another episode of Searching Standard, where each and every week I look for new, innovative decks for you to play in Standard. This week, I'm looking at a deck that was recently featured on the YouTube channel of FlexDaddy. It features Blissey V CRE 119, and can deal massive amounts of damage. Let's get started by taking a look at the deck list.
The main attacker in this deck is Blissey V CRE 119. By using it's Blissful Blast attack, you'll deal a base amount of 10 damage to your opponent's Active Pokemon, plus 30 additional damage for each Energy attached to Blissey V CRE 119. Naturally, Blissey V CRE 119 needs to be partnered with a Pokemon that is able to attach a lot of Energy quickly, like our next Pokemon...
Magnezone ASR 107's Giga Magnet Ability allows you to look at the top six cards of your deck and attach any number of Metal Energy to your Pokemon however you would like. This Ability doesn't have to be used while in the Active Spot, so you can keep Magnezone ASR 107 safe and sound on your Bench. Magnezone ASR 107 can also act as a backup attacker, as its Power Beam attack will deal 120 damage, which isn't too bad. You will need to rely on using Rare Candy PGO 69 to evolve Magnemite ASR 105 into Magnezone ASR 107, as there are zero copies of Magneton in this deck.
Radiant Venusaur PGO 4's Sunny Bloom Ability allows you to keep a consistent amount of cards in hand. It's a fairly unique Ability that triggers after your attack happens. Keep Radiant Venusaur PGO 4 on your Bench, as you'll never be able to attack with it. Its only purpose is to draw you cards.
Speaking of drawing cards, that's exactly what this batch of Supporters do. Professor's Research BRS 147 allows you to draw a new hand of seven cards at the cost of discarding your current hand. Marnie CPA 56 shuffles your hand in before you draw a new hand, but more importantly, it forces your opponent to shuffle their hand into their deck and draw a new hand as well. This can be a great way to slow down their momentum. Finally, Adaman ASR 135 doesn't exactly draw you any cards, but he does allow you to search your deck for any two cards to put into your hand. You'll need to discard two Metal Energy to do this, so try to keep this in mind before attaching Energy to your Pokemon each turn.
Every deck needs a way to find the Pokemon you need, and this deck is no exception. Quick Ball FST 237 can find any Basic Pokemon, while Evolution Incense SSH 163 can only be used to search for Evolution Pokemon. Ultra Ball BRS 150 requires you to discard two cards when you play it, but it can find any Pokemon from within your deck regardless of its evolution status.
There's but a single copy of Boss's Orders BRS 132 in this deck, but it will be very helpful. You can play it to switch your opponent's Active Pokemon with one of your choosing from their Bench. This allows you to choose a Pokemon you know you will Knock Out, scoring some Prize cards in return.
As you've seen, there are a lot of great Supporters in this deck. By playing Pokégear 3.0 SSH 174, you'll have an easier time of ensuring you have the Supporter you need when you need it.
With Magnezone ASR 107 attaching so much Metal Energy to your team and with cards like Adaman ASR 135 requiring you to discard Metal Energy, you'll be happy there's a copy of Energy Recycler BST 124 in this deck. Energy Recycler BST 124 will let you shuffle up to five Metal Energy back into your deck, where they can be useful once again.
If you're looking for a deck that synergizes well, you'll want to give this deck a try. Blissey V CRE 119 is able to do a lot of damage thanks to the Energy that Magnezone ASR 107 provides. It's a fun deck to play, and it's also very powerful.
What do you think of this deck? Do you have any suggestions for improvements? Let me know by leaving a comment below. And be sure to join me here again next week as I continue my search for innovative decks in the Pokemon TCG. I'll see you then!
