Hey Pokémon trainers! It’s Pokémon TCG trainer here with another article for you from the PTCGO store! Today we have a special article for you about one of the most fun decks to play in the standard format that is a good purchase for any player that is currently on a budget. If you have the cards on PTCGO for this deck I’d highly suggest trying it out because it is very fun to play and can aggressively counter the most played decks. This deck is also a very good play for the upcoming third iteration of the team challenge tournament because it is so fringe that it will catch your opponents off guard! this deck was first brought to my attention by popular YouTube personality Azul GG, and I would like to personally give him credit for this amazing list. It uses a lot of weird cards that you wouldn’t normally see in a lot of Pokemon online decks and I think that that is something that is worth noting because it makes the deck unique. without wasting any more time I’d like to jump right into the deck that we are going to talk about today Blissey V!

I booted up my Pokemon Trading Card Game Online app, loaded up some PTCGO codes, and then traded those Pokemon online codes to trade for this deck. I was very excited, and it honestly didn’t take that many PTCGO codes to make the deck. If you’re looking to buy some codes, we sell them here on PTCGO Store, and I highly urge you to check out our competitive pricing and swift delivery! Let’s talk about the newest way to play Blissey V!

Strategy


Blissey V

The main strategy of this Blissey V deck is to get as much energy into the discard pile as possible and attach them using Blissey V’s attack. We play a lot of interesting cards in this deck such as Path to the Peak to slow our opponent down while we can set up our field. Since Blissey has it so much HP we can afford to take a lot of hits from the opponent. This often translates into additional turns where we can draw more prize cards than the opponent. Cards like Crushing Hammer also aid us in this strategy because they also help to slow down our opponent in such a fast-paced standard format. We use cards like Cape of Toughness in order to extend the HP of our Blissey V. This in return makes our Blissey V army even tougher to take down than before. If the opponent can comfortably knock out our Blissey V even when it has a cape on it, then they deserve the win at that point. The best part? Most decks can’t do this, especially when they don’t have access to their abilities or to energy cards. If the opponent is ever unable to take a complete knockout on our Blissey, we will have no problem completely healing our Pokémon with cards that we will get into later in this article. The current standard format has so many healing cards to be utilized; it was hard to choose which ones to include in our deck! Let’s take a peek at our decklist for this cool Pokémon.

Key TCG Cards


Blissey V

4 Blissey V - This is the only Pokémon in our entire deck, and trust me when I say this: we don’t need anything else other than our Blissey V! Coming in at 250 HP, this tank of a Pokémon is ridiculously hard to take down and can dish out a beating on to our opponent. With a Cape of Toughness attached, we can increase the HP of this Pokemon to 300! Not many Pokémon in the current standard format can hit that much damage, meaning we can take at least 2 to 3 hits without playing any sort of healing cards. Blissey V praise on having energies in the discard pile: we get these energy cards in the discard pile by playing unique cards like Allister, or returning energy onto Blissey after a KO has been taken. Keep in mind - unlike VMAX Pokémon, Blissey only gives up two Prize Cards! Meaning our opponent will need to KO three 300 HP beasts in order to win most games. This sounds like an unlikely task; once we get one Blissey loses with energy, there’s no stopping this monster!

4 Professor’s Research - An extremely aggressive draw Supporter that will help us chuck some energy cards in the discard pile.

Allister

3 Allister - This is a great Supporter card that we’ve decided to include in an effort to discard energy cards as easily as possible. Allister is a card we can find using Pokegear.

Zinnia's Resolve

2 Zinnia’s Resolve - We play this card to a similar effect as Allister, and it allows us to draw lots of cards at an alarmingly fast pace.

1 Flannery - This card is vital in the Mew matchup. A guaranteed way to remove a Fusion Strike Energy from the opponent’s field. This way, a Meloetta can’t run through our Blissey army with four Fusion Strike Energy in play - they’ll cap at 210 damage (plus Power Tablet damage).

4 Pokegear - A very versatile card that aids you in being able to find your Supporter of choice at the time you need it. It isn’t guaranteed, but with proper deck thinning you’ll be able to have a decent idea of which Supporters you might get.

Cape of Toughness

4 Cape of Toughness - A +50 HP buff for ourBlissey army is a no-brainer, especially in a tanky deck! These help our Blissey stay alive for longer and withstand more hits.

4 Crushing Hammer - These serve a very similar purpose to Fan of Waves but the main difference is obviously that these can discard any type of energy. If we can accelerate energy with Blissful Blast and then proceed to remove any energy from the opponent’s side, we can create an unstoppable board that our opponent won’t be able to counter.

2 Fan of Waves - There are so many Special Energy running around in our format right now: Capture Energy, Fusion Strike Energy, Speed Lightning Energy, and the list goes on. This card can punish our opponent for including those in their deck, and potentially buy us a turn when we might need it most. Fan of Waves alongside Path to the Peak can be a very crippling combo, sometimes putting our opponent into awkward spots. I’ve won countless games from this card, mainly because it can be played immediately and gain value by setting our opponent back a turn. This utility means we can find the best timing to play this card, and maximize our efficiency with it!

Path to the Peak

4 Path to the Peak - I’ve included a full four copies of Path to the Peak in this deck in an effort to get around annoying abilities like Dark Signal on Umbreon VMAX or perhaps to shutoff the occasional Crobat V. We don’t have any Rule Box abilities in our deck beside a single copy of Suicune V. This card can shutoff Mew VMAX in its tracks because they rely so much on Genesect V’s ability. Many Mew lists are cutting a few Stadium cards from their lists (or in some cases all Stadiums altogether), meaning sometimes your first Path to the Peak might stick for the whole game! If not, you have three more to try and lock your opponent out of the game.

4 Lucky Ice Pop - A healing card to offset KO numbers from your opponent. You can even fully heal your Pokémon with one Ice Pop, you just need to get lucky enough!

2 Suspicious Food Tin - A very potent healing card. It comes at the cost of removing a Psychic Energy, from our Blissey, however, we can get the energy back later on and reattach it to Blissey for a minimal drawback.

4 Hyper Potion - This card serves the same purpose as Suspicious Food Tin; it’s just even more potent and has a higher drawback. Be sure to time these well, because they can really set the opponent back!

4 Psychic Energy - We have specifically chosen to play Psychic Energy in this deck because it enables us to use cards such as Suspicious Food Tin. There is really no other purpose as to why we are playing Psychic because Blissey V requires Colourless energies.

powerful colorless energy

4 Powerful Colourless Energy - This is one of the cards that makes Blissey V such a powerful budget deck. This energy allows us to do 20 additional damage to the opponent's active Pokémon, and we can always recycle these energies back with our Blissful Blast attack. We play four of these cards because we want to do as much extra damage as possible, and we also want to find these as quickly as possible as well.

4 Capture Energy - If you haven’t noticed we don’t really play very many search cards in this deck. Most Pokemon online decks often rely on playing ball cards, however, this deck relies solely on the special energy. It makes sense to play this energy over a ball card because you can recycle these energies back with our attack.

4 Lucky Energy - This energy card proves to be a unique inclusion in our deck because it allows us to draw cards without the use of a draw Supporter. Lucky Energy can be consistently recycled with our attack - this also means we’ll be drawing a lot of cards throughout the game as well! This card also ties into the strategy of our deck so well because since our Blisseys will be tanking so many hits, we’ll be able to continuously draw multiple cards at the end of each turn. These also help us recover well after our opponent plays Marnie, and is the best Special Energy card in our deck.

Conclusion

This deck is one of the most unique answers to Mew VMAX right now in the metagame (mostly due to heavy Path to the Peak), and it really stands a chance most things provided that your opponent doesn’t Marnie you too frequently or have the ability to OHKO you. If you like flexibility with Trainer cards each turn and the ability to lock your opponent out of games with the Path to the Peak then I highly urge you to try out this deck. This deck requires a decent bit of stuff from different Standard expansions, so you should check out our shop for your PTCGO code needs. I’d suggest nabbing some PTCGL codes and building this deck online because this deck seems like it will stick around for a while - it could even be a good choice for the Team Challenge event coming up. Until next time, have fun!
