Best decks in March Pt. 2

New Cards

What’s poppin’ TCG Park readers? Are you also satisfied with the new set of Brilliant Stars? I certainly am, and I’ve been building as many decks as possible to test this set for our community! This article will share my top five decks from Brilliant Stars! I’ve already covered the first part of this article featuring the other top 10 decks, so with that being said, let’s jump into these new decks

5. Gengar VMAX

Gengar VMAX [Fusion Strike] might not have been taken seriously at first, but it’s since found its way close to the top of the metagame. Path to the Peak [Chilling Reign] allows this deck to get around tough Abilities, like Skyscraper on Duraludon VMAX [Evolving Skies], and Gengar VMAX can OHKO anything with G-Max Swallow Up! Ultra Ball [Brilliant Stars] and Choice Belt [Brilliant Stars] both take this deck to new heights!

4. Arceus VSTAR Toolbox

While some decks focus on a core strategy, this deck focuses on whatever works in each matchup! Maybe you hit a Gengar VMAX deck and you wanna hit it for Weakness – Galarian Zapdos V [Brilliant Stars] can make that happen! What about Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX [Battle Styles]? Hoopa V [Fusion Strike] says hi! I could go on forever, but that’s how this deck rolls! Use Arceus VSTAR to power up various attackers and take advantage of your opponent’s deck!

3. Duraludon VMAX / Arceus VSTAR

With Riley Hulbert winning the 150 player Full Grip Games event with this new archetype, the whole world has their eyes set on Duraludon VMAX [Evolving Skies]. Use Arceus VSTAR to power things up with Trinity Nova, try your best to Single Strike Style Mustard [Brilliant Stars], and block your opponent with Skyscraper. After testing this deck for a bunch of games, it seems incredibly effective! Let’s check it out!

2. Dark Toolbox

Dark Toolbox is a deck that differs from person to person, but it often consists of Galarian Moltres [Evolving Skies], Sableye V [Sword and Shield], Galarian Weezing [Shining Fates], and Hoopa [Darkness Ablaze]. You wanna offer up a few Prize Cards while doing damage before swooping in with a Crazy Claws or Fiery Wrath! This deck is difficult to play, but it’s incredibly effective. Let’s check it out!

1. Mew VMAX

Here we are, the best deck in format, Mew VMAX [Fusion Strike]! Mew VMAX has been crushing events ever since Fusion Strike and the recent release of Ultra Ball, Choice Belt, and Double Turbo Energy [Brilliant Stars] make this deck even better. Considering Mew VMAX can already copy any attack in your deck, accelerate Energy, and more – these changes make the deck absolutely broken!

Time to Test

With all of the knowledge of the new Brilliant Stars set in this article, I hope it has inspired many of you trainers out there to play some Pokémon! As for me, I always get inspired from new set releases and use it as a time to explore as much of the format as possible. I hope to share my findings with our community and write about them here! I still have a bunch of testing left to do so I’m gonna start that and catch up with all of you later! Happy testing 🙂
