    Default A Lugia/Ho-Oh Legends Deck? Already?

    Well just today I got back from the HGSS prerelease and found out about the nifty Legends cards. I collected the four available, and made a deck as soon as possible. I haven't distinguished much about what I can do with it, but it seems to have a bit of potential.
    (Note: If the set isn't marked, it's from HGSS)

    Pokémon-18
    1x Ho-Oh Legend Top half
    1x Ho-Oh Legend Bottom half
    1x Lugia Legend Top Half
    1x Lugia Legend Bottom half
    1x Delibird
    1x Chimchar POP9
    1x Monferno DP
    1x Infernape DP
    2x Magikarp SF
    1x Gyarados SF
    1x Gyarados
    2x Baltoy SV
    2x Claydol GE
    2x Snorlax RR

    Trainers, Supporters, Stadiums-11, 3, 1
    Trainers
    1x Life Herb
    1x Pokégear 3.0
    1x Energy Search
    2x Energy Restore
    2x Switch
    1x Quick Ball
    1x Pokéball
    2x Expert Belt

    Supporters
    1x Professor Elm's Training Method
    1x Bebe's Search
    1x Palmer's Contribution

    Stadium
    1x Snowpoint Temple

    Energy
    9x Fire
    6x Electric
    10x Water
    2x Rainbow

    Strategy
    First off, I hope to god I start with Delibird to set up, or at least Snorlax to stall.
    Try to get out either Gyarados or a legend, and get energy out. Expert Belts add to their already fair damage/health, which helps. If all else fails, I get out the flaming monkey and try to do whatever I can with it. The Snowpoint would add more to the Legends' heath, increasing a 130/140 health by a solid 40.
    The Palmer's gets either a Snorlax, a KO'd fighter, or just energy back out. Losing even a few Pokémon would be fatal to this deck. The rest are just for either getting Pokémon out, or keeping them fueled.

    Improvements I already need to make
    I know it's low on Pokémon and might be a bit high on energy. I might also want to switch out some trainers. I won't get angry if I'm flat out told the deck sucks. That's why I'm here.

    Way, way, waaaaay too many Energies. You need way, way, waaaay more Supporters and Draw/Search Trainers. As it is, this deck flat out sucks. A Ho-Oh/Lugia Legend deck would be fun, but it wouldn't really be competitive and it would be difficult to do correctly. Essentially, you need to drop a lot of the energies, drop the Delibird, drop the Infernape, drop the Gyarados line, and add in more Trainers and Supporters.

    The chances of this deck starting with a dead hand are immense, in which case you lose. Ho-Oh is by far the better of the two, since Lugia has a virtually unobtainable energy cost. How opposed would you be to switching the deck to just Ho-Oh?

    The plan is to switch to Ho-oh. I've posted this on Pokégym also, and I've gotten suggestions there, too. And after a lose streak of 6-0 in my house, I'm pretty sure you're right.
    Are there any trainers/supporters you would immediately reccomend?

    1x Luxury Ball
    1x Palmer's Contribution
    4x Bebe's Search
    3x Roseanne's Research
    2x Professor Oak's Visit
    4x Poke Drawer + (if you have room)
    4x Pokemon Communication

    That sort of thing. Cards that will make your deck faster and allow it to run more smoothly.

    I've got my hands on most of these, but Pokémon Communication might be the hardest. Also, I have no Roseanne's or Pokédrawers. But it all seems achieveable.
