Mind Machine Deck Tune Up

Mind Machine Deck Box Art

Mind Machine was a popular theme deck in the e-card era. It was from the Skyridge expansion, and today I will make it better than ever.

Mind Machine

Gear up Xatu with Technical Machines, recruit Colorless Pokémon, and power up with all 6 types of Energy to help you crank out win after win.

Here is the deck list as is:

4 Natu 80/144
3 Xatu H32/144
4 Ditto 51/144
4 Rattata 90/144
2 Raticate 89/144
2 Snorlax 100/144
2 Miracle Sphere α 129/144
2 Miracle Sphere β 130/144
2 Miracle Sphere γ 131/144
2 Oracle 138/144
4 Moo-Moo Milk 101/111
2 Professor Oak’s Research 149/165
1 Town Volunteers 136/147
11 Psychic Energy
3 Fighting Energy
3 Fire Energy
3 Grass Energy
3 Lightning Energy
3 Water Energy

Edits

Since this deck revolves around Xatu, I would put in a fourth copy. I would also take out 2 Rattata, since it only runs 2 Raticate. I would also add a Stantler and a Celebi, because they are very powerful. Since the only Pokémon that use\ psychic energy in the deck are Natu and Celebi, I would take out 8 of it. The deck now has 53 cards in it. Time to add trainers.

+1 Xatu
-2 Rattata
+1 Stantler 102/144
+1 Celebi 145/144
-8 Psychic Energy

For a theme deck trainer list, I honestly think that this is one off the better ones. Here it is now:

2 Miracle Sphere α 129/144
2 Miracle Sphere β 130/144
2 Miracle Sphere γ 131/144
2 Oracle 138/144
4 Moo-Moo Milk 101/111
2 Professor Oak’s Research 149/165
1 Town Volunteers 136/147

I want to change this list so it has 22 quality trainers. This means taking out a couple of Moo-Moo Milks and adding some more draw cards. Here are my edits:

+2 Fast Ball 124/144
+1 Oracle
+2 Professor Oak’s Research
+2 Underground Expedition 140/144
-2 Moo-Moo Milk
+1 Lure Ball 128/144
+1 Fisherman 125/144

Now we have a full deck, and it is better than ever. The only thing left to do is test it. I would if I had the cards, but since I don’t, I can’t. If anyone builds this list or one that is similar, please leave a comment and tell me how the game played out. Thank You!
