This is a very short piece explaining the cards I changed in Darkrai/Zoroark/Nihilego to deal with the issues my original list had. For those who missed the first section, this is a link to it. Before you read this, I want to note that London competitors are probably better off playing the Registeel Genesect list Michael and I posted two days ago. This is simply an update for the players who have been testing Darkrai Zoroark and feel comfortable with it.
Darkrai Zoroark gained some hype after I debuted it, but this excitement came with the constant critique that it lost to Gardevoir. I would contest this notion chronically but eventually came to the conclusion that it was, in fact, a slightly unfavourable matchup. Garbodor was another issue just because of how problematic Garbotoxin is. Lastly, drawing Darkrai GX or other Pokemon at the right time was hard to do. Repeatedly I would have to play Darkrai down from my hand (in the early game) rather than use Restoration, setting me behind by one attachment.
This is a formidable list of issues to overcome. Lucky for me, I adore Darkrai enough to push through these seemingly huge problems. The solutions certainly were not obvious. I tried several different engines including – but not limited to: Energy Switch W/ Parallel City, triple Enhanced Hammer, triple Kukui, Yveltal EX, and Guzzlord GX.
Some of these had more viability than others, however the list I concluded with, plays none of the above. This sixty solves all of the problems I was having, while making the deck more consistent.
