First thoughts are that you have way too much energy. Second, your trainers aren't complimenting what your deck does. As far as I can tell, Shedinja and Wobbuffet are there simply to stall until you get your mega Zard set up. Any opponent will see right through this strategy, and start setting up their side to take down zard. I'm using Volcanion from the newest set in a fire deck, but if you were looking to get the cards anyway, I think you would be better off concentrating your effort. Add two more Charizard EX, take out one style and focus on the other, for me, I'll just show how I would concentrate on the fire side. Take out Wobbuffet and Trick Coin. And Hard Charm, and Evosoda. You can replace Trevor with Ultra Ball. Add in Blacksmiths, Charizard Spirit Links, Protection Cubes, N, Professor Sycamore, Energy Retrieval to name a few. I know it's changing a lot, but your deck as is seems weak to being picked off easily by a discard/control deck, or any deck that can weather the dual mega zard attack. This provides consistency and depth to it.

Trainers are your lifeblood, so use them as such. This variant should easily get you Mega Zard on the table quickly. And with the double colorless, you can get him fully powered faster. Don't be afraid to do a hand refresh, as sometimes that's what you need to win. A protection cube on one zard turns him into a monster. As he doesn't hurt himself, and can spam a 300 damage attack every turn with no penalty. Throw a fire energy on Shedinja to let him attack, and discard one for Scorched Land, when Shedinja dies, you get to use Blacksmith and potentially add 3 energy in a single turn.

Consistency is what makes great decks. Look for ways to ensure you get your main strategy going as easily/quickly as possible, and use them. Good luck, and have fun, no matter what deck you end up using.

But I thought the protection cube just stops recoil damage, but Zard has no moves that deal recoil damage making the card useless?

Are you looking at standard format or extended? Honestly, the discard aspect of that attack can get quite brutal, especially when you are milling through a good part of your deck to get to it. I'll try to put some thought into it.
