Hints / Things to think about

  • This deck plays very differently depending on your Matchup, some games you will focus heavy on Sceptile EX second attack. And at others Giratina EX ability and attacks. If you play the deck alot be sure to learn and understand when yo focus on which Pokémon.
  • M Giratina EX is great for healing but also for putting those two extra Energy cards on to your Giratina EX on your bench.
  • Sceptile EX first attack may not seem but much. But some fortunate flips can turn a game around,
  • Ariados attack stops your opponent from retreating, in a bad situation remember this as you can Lysandre out a weak or Pokémon without energy you can stall the game (hopefully) for a few turns.

1 AZ
1 Ace Trainer
1 Sparkling Robe

Hints / Things to think about

  • Getting a first turn attack with Entei is not impossible with this deck. Always see if you have the options to do a first turn KO before wasting your supporter for the turn. Becuase you need to use Blacksmith to make it happen.
  • You do not always need to do your strongest attack with Entei even tho you have the option. Sometimes, you just want to tank up with Hard Charms and use ”Flame Screen” to set up a KO for next turn while being able to tank alot of damage.
  • Never forget, fire Energy in the Discard Pile is a tool for you with this deck.
  • Play a fire Energy or draw two cards with Scorced Earth, in most situations the card draw is correct to give your more options. But it all depends on the situation you’re currently in.
  • Entei’s second attack can do a maximum of 170damage in one attack. Make sure to punish those Manectric Exs’!

I want you! Bloggers, youtubers, writers!

Hello everyone! I must say feel good about Nurgle’s Place becoming the one blog I’m using, about games and different related hobbies. The one last thing I wish I could do with this blog, is to run it with other people, or rather, invite guest bloggers that can use this space to vent their thoughts on new games, events, reports, deck profiles and so on. I want to let the readers come back to a new content everyday from people that they know talk about interesting subject.

So I’m going to take a long look around the web tomorrow evening, try to find bloggers that blog for the joy of it, I will even be looking around on YouTube to find people that can make episodes to post on this blog. This is the next logical step for me and what I want this to become, I want it to grow and invite people from different hobbies to one place.

A forum, a youtube channel, interesting articles and comments and most importantly fun! Let’s make this into something special! If you’re interested to become a part of the Nurgle’s Place family, just leave me comment or email: Nurgleprobe@gmail.com

I’ll be happy to see you soon!

You will even get one a cute sign picture like me to use on the blog. 😉

Nurgle / Nurgleprobe – The person behind the name

So I may not be the best writer in the world, I may not have the most exciting blog that you can subscribe to. But you know what, I’m doing something that I enjoy and that’s the most important thing for this little project of mine, a project named Nurgle’s Place. And what is this about? A long boring post? Well maybe for some of you, this is the story about this blog, the person behind it and what it’s been in the past and what it will be in the future.

Let’s all sit down with a cup of hot tea, coffee, coco or whatever you prefer and read this story together.

It’s started back in the day when I went to University West, a school two hours away from where I live. I studied media in all kinds of different forms, interactive, emotional, social, commercial and so on. I’ve always enjoyed the huge subject “media” it covers so much of our lives that it’s almost impossible to comprehend before you take a step back and look at what the world is built of. Anyway, at University West we had a teacher that always wanted us to share what we were doing through blogging or some kind of social media. It may not sound so mind boggling, but during those courses, the subject of putting our work and thoughts on blogs became highly debated. What you’re looking at now, is something that has grown out of that. A blog where I share my interests and thoughts about games and other nerdy things.

To be honest, and you have to be honest at times, I’ve tried to write about things that are popular just to get a lot of hits for two or three days, I still do that of course but only if the subject at hand interests me. That is also the biggest reason that the blog has some ups and downs when it comes to content, some days I’m inspired and find a lot of things I enjoy, some days I just don’t feel like sharing anything.

I’ve had a few blogs and projects on the web long before this one, one being a card game that I and a friend worked/works on. I’ve always enjoyed creating; creating things that are enjoyed by people out there in the world, sadly this blog can’t cover that many people or even draw that much attention from the people I want to come here. I guess I could go around making a fuzz and noise about the blog and myself around the internet, but I feel that they should find their way here if something on this blog interests them.

The last week or maybe even weeks I’ve had a lot of things to think about when it comes to my blogging, should everything be shared, should the blog have a bigger focus on a certain subject to let a certain crowd enjoy it. I see a lot more activity on the blog when it’s about card games, I love card games and always try to stay on top of the ones I actually play, and I’ve tested more card games than I can count, well maybe not, I guess I can count to ten or so. I’ve never been a great player in any of the card games I tend to play, but I don’t mind being okay in several of them. Currently I’m even a Judge in the tournament card game: The Spoils. A game that I really hope will grow and become something big in the future. This blog will try it’s best to help that game out from now on. So prepare for some The Spoils content everyone.

Video games. Yea I guessed you would ask about that, I love video/pc games, and these days I mostly play the ones that allow for multiplayer, I enjoy good stories, but playing with friends is really the most enjoyable thing when it comes to gaming. Maybe that’s the reason I enjoy card games so much. Card games work, because people find the time and heart to sit down and play with strangers. But about digital gaming in general, this blog is really taking a step back from that, and that’s mostly because of my current economy, I just can’t afford new games at a good rate to review and talk about, and just posting game news like any big site out there doesn’t really interest me anymore (I used to do a lot of that). People won’t come here to read news they can find anywhere else, they will come here to read about new things, new thoughts, and a personal view on different subjects.

Well thank you for clearing my mind this evening, and I really hope you will stick around and keep yourself updated with this blog, now that I feel more secure writing about card games, there will be a lot more content to follow.

Cya soon!
