Stupid Deck Idea: Stoutland

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Hey OHKO people, I decided it was time to get a new article out, and since I haven’t tested quite that much of Boundaries Crossed, I thought the category Pikkdogs oftenly used, “Stupid Deck Idea” would suit this better than “Deck Analysis”. Stoutland is probably going to be Tier 2-3, but I felt that a deck review for a deck that I am liking would be a good thing to do.

I have only played a couple games with Stoutland, so the deck might not be perfect, but I’m just going to post a deck I have been testing so you guys can get an overview of the deck and an option for something to play at a Cities if you opt


Stoutland revolves around locking your opponent’s Supporters via Stoutland’s Ability, Watchdog, which, well, shuts off Supporters so long as Stoutland is active. On top of that, it attacks your opponent with “Wild Tackle” (Not sure about the English name of this attack, so for my proxies I just put in cool sounding names, such as “The All-Mighty Stoutland Attack”), which does 90 and has a possibility of hitting Stoutland for 20.

The problem with this strategy is …

Pikkdogs Stupid Deck Idea: Spread 2012 (Registeel EX and Kyurem).

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs with a Stupid Deck Idea.

Hey Pikkdogs, Do you know what is the difference between your Stupid Deck Ideas and a regular Deck Analysis?



Good one.  Anyway, we are here to look at a more radical deck in the new format, one that has to do with spread.  You have already met my Extra-Dimensional sidekick Pedro, so Pedro why don’t ya give us a news article and send us to the article with some comedic momentum.

Well I can try. Today in the news is Captain Morgan.  Morgan was a 17th century pirate who the famous rum brand is named for. is reporting that archaeologists recently found cannons and wood that they think were from Captain Morgan’s lost fleet.  Henry Morgan was of course a pirate who terrorized the area around what is now the country of Panama, historians say that his ships ran aground near the shores of Panama, and that the find of his lost fleet could be very historically significant to the area.  Do you like the pirates Pikkdogs? 

Well, on one hand I like them because I can say the word …

EelZone: The Thunderrated Nats Deck

Monday, June 18th, 2012

I think I’ve lost my spot in Tier One.

Hey, it’s me, coolestman22 again. I’m trying to get a couple deck analysis articles in before Nats, so those of you who are going can see more options than just Darkrai/Tornadus and Zekeels.

As you guessed from the title, the deck I’m going to be reviewing is EelZone, a deck that I feel is extremely underrated.

EelZone’s history is that it was the BDIF during Cities. It had the most wins of any deck, and had good matchups against everything not Donphan.

EelZone was hyped to be good against EX’s. If you Lost Burned 4 energy you drew 2 prizes, so if you did that three times, you would win only using  Magnezone instead of having to attack with other Pokemon.

The problem is that Magnezone is a Stage Two, and it’s hard to set up. Mewtwo

Pikkdogs Stupid Deck Idea: Aerpoleon (Empoleon DE + Aerodactyl)

Friday, May 11th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a stupid deck idea for you.  A stupid deck idea is like a regular deck analysis, but for some reason we do not have a lot of confidence in the deck.  It could be more of a fun deck, or it could be a good deck that we just didn’t test out enough.   A comment on one of my recent articles inspired me to check this deck out.  It is kind of a swarm deck that features Empoleon as the main attacker and Aerodactyl in a Plus Power like role.  We will get to that later, but now we must say “hi” to Pedro.  Hey Pedro.

Hey Pikkdogs.

Would you care to start us off with a news story?

Sure.  Journalist Dylan Byers at “The Poltico” blog is reporting that the POTUS, President Barrack Obama, has told us a lie.  He did some researching and found out that in his 1995 Autobiography, Obama fabricated a story about a girl friend, when in truth no such girl friend exists. 

He lied about having a girl friend?  And that’s a scandal?  I made up about 75 girl …

Pikkdogs Stupid Deck Idea: Regigigas/Cofagrigus NV #46/Vanilluxe ND

Monday, April 9th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a Stupid Deck Idea for you.  Stupid Deck Ideas are a series of articles where we talk about decks that are more towards the fun side of the game, more than the competitive.  We also might call it a Stupid Deck Idea because we haven’t tested it a lot, which is the case with this deck.  Before we tell you all about the deck, why doesn’t Pedro come in and give us a little news story to get us going?  Hey Pedro.

Hey Pikkdogs.  Today we have some news from the world of technology.  Google has released information on a new product that will allow people to do things like check their email and surf the web without having to use a hand held device.  “Project Glass” is a program that involves the use of smart phone goggles.  They are an eye piece that you would wear like glasses that is connected to your smartphone, and you use them to view a webpage without the use of a handheld device.  One would make the “click” on a link or scroll down a page by making head

Stupid Deck Idea: How Bout a “Round” of Applause? Seismitoad + Wigglytuff Deck

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Jiggilly Pufff. Jiggilly………….Puff………Jiggillly Puff..Jiggilllleeeeeeeeee.

Oh sorry, A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a Stupid Deck Idea.  The Stupid Deck Idea is a type of article that we do when we have an idea for a deck that either isn’t that great, or that we haven’t tested enough.

The deck in question today is Seismitoad and Wigglytuff.  It may seem like  a weird deck to make, but it actually is a pretty simple idea.  So let’s take a closer look at this deck and see if it is any good.

The Basics

Before we go into how the deck works, let’s look at the decks three main attackers; Wigglytuff, Seismitoad, and Palpitoad.

Wigglytuff is a 90 HP Pokemon with a fighting weakness and a 2 retreat cost.  The first attack, “Round”, does 20 damage times the number of your Pokemon in play that have an attack that is named “Round.” The second attack, “Hypnoblast”, does 60 damage and lets you flip a coin, if heads you put the defending Pokemon to sleep.  Of course, we don’t really care about “Hypnoblast,” I don’t see anyone really using this attack.  “Round” could be a good …

Stupid Deck Idea: Amoongus and Leafeon

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with a Stupid Deck Idea.  I must admit that I haven’t tested many new cards right now, but one rogue idea has inspired me.  That is the idea of pairing Amoongus and Leafeon.  I know its not a good deck, but it is a fun deck.  So we are going to be talking about that soon.

First, I just want to make an announcement.  I feel that my articles are becoming a little stale and that I should change things up, so I think that I am going to give Pedro a break.  Maybe Pedro will come back after a while. Maybe I will find a different format and change things up, but right now I shall go it alone. Chances are that Pedro will just take a week or so off, but we will see.

Amoongus and Leafeon

The Basics

There was  rogue deck going on in the Battle Roads season that featured Roserade and Leafeon.  The decks aim was to do damage for one energy with Leafeon while Roserade sits on the bench.  If you attach an energy to Roserade you can give  a …

Pikkdogs Has Some More Tips for Beginners, and a Stupid Deck Idea: Chandelure Decklist!

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with my extra dimensionary sidekick, Pedro.  I decided that since we are not going to get information about the new set until next week, why don’t I do another article for beginners?

Because you stink.

Well, I do, but at least I know a little about the game.

A little is right. 

Just so you know Pedro, I do admit that I had a terrible Cities season, but I came to a decision that it is because I am cursed.

Go on.

So, instead of wasting time play testing, I instead am going to do the scientific  thing and try to break the curse.  I already know a couple ways to break a curse, but if any of our readers know something, I would appreciate it.

So what are you doing with all the curse breaking stuff?

I will compile a list of things, and then do all of them before states.  It probably won’t work, but it should make for a pretty cool article.

Well, that would be a first.

Pikkdogs Stupid Deck Idea: Hydreigon

Monday, November 7th, 2011

A big Hello to all you OHKOers out here, this is Pikkdogs here with a Stupid Deck Idea.  I am also bringing with me my extra-dimensionary sidekick, Pedro.   A Stupid Deck Idea is an article that spotlights a deck that either is more of a fun deck, or a deck that was not tested very much.  This deck will be one that has not been tested.  In this article I will just be giving out a  list for a Hydreigon deck, I have not tested them yet so I will leave those for you.

How lazy of you.

Well that is what I am, Lazy.  Do we have any news for the good folks Pedro?

Yes, lots of news.  Our first bit of news is that Yanmega Prime will soon be coming out in a promo box with 2 packs, and evolution line, and one theme deck.  It is called the “Prime Challenge” box.   The price has not been announced yet, but I would assume it would be about 25 bucks.  The box will also be coming out with Machamp, Umbreon, and Espeon Primes.  What do you think of that Pikkdogs?

Well, I do not like the decision.  …

Stupid Deck Idea: Audino Donk

Monday, October 24th, 2011

A big hello to all your OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs and my extra-dimensionary sidekick Pedro here with a Stupid Deck Idea.  If you aren’t familiar with the stupid deck idea concept, it was Ed’s idea to have an article that reviews a deck that isn’t the best.

Couldn’t we say that about all of your deck lists?

Well I guess so, let’s rephrase that.  A stupid deck idea is an article that highlights a deck that I don’t believe is as good as other decks.  It could be a deck that I haven’t had a chance to test, or it could be a deck that is more of a fun league deck.  This deck is more towards the fun league deck category, but it might be a little more if you can get a really polished deck.

Before we get into the deck, let’s check in with Pedro.  How are things going Pedro?

Well, I’m doing good.  How bout you Pikkdogs?

Not so well, I came down with a cold or something like that.  So I have an excuse for writing a terrible article today, I’m not feeling too well.

What are your excuses for writing terrible articles
