Should I replace Genesect EX with Aggron EX or Steelix EX?
I probably should put some Pokémon Center Lady, or Devolution spray, maybe a Rare Candy? Just sayin'.

My friend and I used to run a metal deck featuring Dialga EX, Keldeo EX and Bronzong with Float Stone and Muscle Band being necessary tools.

The idea was to always have Dialga as your attacker with a Muscle Band to make him do 170 damage every turn. He has to discard 2 energy to use his big attack every turn. Keldeo's Rush In makes Dialga return to the bench where Bronzong can attach an energy from the discard to him. 2 Bronzong on the Bench refuel Dialga every turn. Keldeo then retreats (for free with Float Stone) and Dialga is ready to attack.

We stopped playing that strategy because Keldeo rotated out. There is a Zoroark that works the same way as Keldeo, but he requires evolving and the deck didn't run as smoothly. Solgaleo can perform the same function, but's a stage 2, making it less smooth than Zoroark, but it's a strategy worth considering.

Thanks! The reason I have Solgeleo is for massive damage output, and I have Magernea and Skarmory for Greninja and decks that require abilitys to work. I have Genesect as a secondary attacker, although I will replace that with Steelix.

P.S. How do I change the banner from Kanto starters and prof. Oak to something else?

your banner changes automatically based on post count. it's not something you can control.

I'd probably stick with Genesect. It costs less energy and you don't have any energy ramping. Not sure which Skarmory you're intending to use. Roaring Skies?

Other suggestions I would make: switch out Energy Search for Professor's Letter, Reduce Cosmoem to 1 or 0 and add 3-4 Rare Candy, Find a way to fit another Lysandre.
