With the hype of the Lost Originlink outside website expansion with new “baby” Pokémon cards and the Lost Zone mechanic, there are cards that go unnoticed by the public. Like

Shiftry

Shiftry: Lost Box combination with underrated potential

Deck Analysis

Loading icon
Here we have 4 main attackers in the deck: 1)

Shiftry

with its attack

Tearing Gust

, For one grass energy, deals 210 damage and sends itself and all cards attached to it to the Lost Zone; being raw and high damage for a "stage 2" while making a Lost Zone card stack combo for Cramorant LOR 50 and Sableye LOR 70.

Ad

2)

Cramorant

that serves as another attacker thanks to the ability

Lost Provision

, which this Pokémon ignores the energy costs of its attack if there are 4 or more cards in the Lost Zone. This is one of the keys to use its

Spit Innocently

attack, which does 110 damage and is unaffected by weakness. 3)

Sableye

is the attacker who uses damage counters, making a "spread" effect thanks to its

Lost Mine

, which for a psychic energy, you can put up to 12 damage counters between your opponent's Pokémon. 4) And

Miltank

enters as a Pokémon that avoids damage from Pokémon V from the opponent's game, thanks to its ability

Miracle Body

, and its attack

Rout

, for two colorless energies, does 10 + 20 damage for each Pokémon on your opponent's Bench.

Recursive Pokémon

1) To protect your game against “Sniper” decks that can destroy your

Seedot

,

Cramorant

,

Comfey

and

Sableye

, we have to put Manaphy BRS 41, which grants protection to your Benched Pokémon if they take direct damage from your opponent's attacks. 2) Radiant Greninja ASR 46, which with its

Concealed Cards

ability, you discard an energy card from your hand to draw two cards. 3) Comfey LOR 79 is essential to run the process of discarding the Lost Zone with

Flower Selecting

ability, which if it is the active Pokémon, you look at the top two cards of the deck and chooses one for your hand and the other is sent to the Lost Zone.

Trainer Cards

- Colress's Experiment LOR 155 looks at the top 5 cards of your deck and put 3 cards in your hand and the rest to the Lost Zone. - Boss's Orders SHF 58 serves to pull a Pokémon from the opponent's Bench to bring it as active and close with a Knockout for

Shiftry

to deal this massive 210 damage against the opposing Pokémon.
Loading icon
- Rare Candy PGO 69 is precisely the evolution acceleration key from

Seedot

to

Shiftry

, making it possible to assemble the evolutionary setup as quickly as possible and then deal damage in its final evolution with 210 damage. - Ordinary Rod SSH 171 is precisely the recycling of basic energy resources and Pokémon in your discard, being able to choose one of the two options or both, which are: 1) Recover two Pokémon from the discard pile and put them in the deck. 2) Recover two basic energies from discard pile and put them in the deck.

- Training Court RCL 169 serves between turns (yours and opponent's) to draw a basic energy from the discard pile and put it in your hand; thus contributing to the energy management, which has few copies of 4 different types.

Format Archetypes

Advantages

As a purely

Single Prize

deck, it is good at dealing with ultra-rare decks, and can respond against ultra-rare Pokémon from recently trending decks like

Giratina VStar

,

Origin Forme Palkia VStar

,

Arceus VStar

and among others.

Ad

In addition to the raw damage dealt by

Shiftry

, you have the versatility of dealing fixed damage with

Cramorant

and still deal "spread" damage with

Sableye

, if you have a match against Manaphy BRS 41 from an opponent's deck, which can be circumvented.

Disadvantages

The acceleration of the use of the Lost Zone without due care and which cards that can be taxed can hinder the development of the game at specific times, or even burn the deck as you reach the

Late-Game

and

End Game

not having enough to respond to some situations and being close to the deckout, considering using 4 Shiftry at once, usually losing 8 cards (if you consider having evolved from Seedot to Shiftry through Rare Candy). It's hard to deal with decks that have "Spread" with massive damage counters like

Mewtwo-VUnion

,

Mimikyu-VMax

,

Dragapult-VMax + Sableye

like in this example.link outside website Decks that have more aggressive “Spread Sniper” power like

Greninja VUnion

,

Urshifu VMax -Rapid Strike-

,

Magnezone VStar

are also tough.

Conclusions

It's a cheap deck (except for Comfey and Sableye that have increased in price recently) and great to play to know the "Lost Box" and see its potential and versatility with 3 different types of attackers in this deck. It's worth the check and chance for this deck, which has a very aggressive and unusual proposal.
