The era of Sword and Shield tended to change metas quickly. Pokémon TCG. Now, with the start of “Scarlet & Violet”, the cards that can be used in official play have changed dramatically, and the situation is even more shaken. New powers replace old powers. Stall tactics that worked three months ago are gutted.
But it’s not all evolution. Saying goodbye to things like the Inteleon engine doesn’t mean Boss’ Orders is going away any time soon.Proper adjustment of the original spin Miu VMAX Continue to destroy rival decks around the world.
Updated by Quinton O’Connor on December 27, 2022. With the Scarlet and Violet era of the Pokémon trading card game not far off, and a belated rotation pending in early 2023, it’s hard to say whether there’s any reason to return to this installment in the future. But we did it today, clarifying some techniques and including sample decklists. I don’t know how long this will last, but for now the Mew VMAX remains an absolute behemoth on the battlefield.
Changes in Scarlet and Violet
With a plethora of cards from the Sword & Shield era having been banished by the latest rotation, some of the most prominent decks in the recent meta have been marred in predictably brutal ways, and creative fans should keep them relevant. to find bold new ways to do so. . We are seeing this and great end results all over the world.
Having said that, Mew VMAX doesn’t suffer as much as most, so the number of card shifts is relatively slim. This is mainly due to the newness of key cards. Much of it stems from the recent half of the Pokémon TCG’s Journey to Galar. Things like Battle VIP Passes and Power Tablets are good examples of strong holdovers, as explained below.
I can still feel the change. We took this opportunity to tweak the original decklist to match the strategy that arose towards the end of the previous rotation. And, of course, it was necessary to do away with certain concepts entirely. Quickball is replaced with a mixture of substitutes, for example. They usually get the job done.
In fact, the changes reflected at the end of the guide don’t have much to do with the first batch of Scarlet and Violet cards available at the time of this update. Over time, that may change as well. But rather, top players are replacing early Galar cards with latter ones. Case in point: Switch Cart, Forest Sealing Stone, Shiren. of course, judge is already back, and it hasn’t gone anywhere with Sword & Shield either.
What makes the Miu VMAX so special?
is that all? cross fusion strikeWith two colorless energies, you can imitate the moves of your benched Fusion Strike Pokémon opponent. No, it’s strings. attached. This kind of attack defines a generation. Similar to Clefairy’s Metronome, but 100 times better.
Of course, it revolves around using the Fusion Strike deck. But if the Fusion Strike deck is strong, it’s not so bad. The most common approach is to get the Mew VMAX on the field.keep Genesect V on the bench.Using Genesect V techno blast attack. This does a very powerful 210 damage, but with some disclaimers.
First, it costs 2 steel energy and 1 colorless. Not the hardest deal, but it does require a steady supply of steel energy, which the Mew VMAX deck doesn’t. The second issue is important. Next turn, Genesect V cannot attack.
If Genesect V is the main fielder, the 2-energy retreat cost will wear off quickly, Mew VMAX has zero retreat costThis means you can switch every turn to keep two colorless energies and (ideally) replace them with another Mew VMAX. Rinse and repeat. Mew has 310 HP and is surprisingly bulky. Be careful with dark types.
Don’t ignore Mew VMAX’s other tricks. Not an All-Star, but would be a great backup. max miracle At the modest cost of 2 Psychic Energy, it does 130 damage to your opponent’s active Pokémon. The VMAX 130 sound isn’t earth-shattering in and of itself, and it really isn’t.
But Max Miracle has an ace. Enemies cannot rely on any special effects in the game to stop it, as it breaks through any barriers. If your deck is built around blocks, it will probably cause problems. Remember the Dauntless Shield from Zamazenta V? Not so brave anymore, puppy.
How to build a Great Mew VMAX deck
Look at that cutie. Indeed, mankind cannot be terrorized. He’s definitely worth adding to your Mew VMAX decklist.
merge or lose
Since this is a Fusion Strike deck, you should avoid including Pokemon outside of the Fusion Strike system. It probably goes without saying. Maybe not. However, the synergy these cards can achieve cannot be overstated. I wouldn’t throw Squirtle into a fire-only deck. probably.
took Mew V, for example.you will want four For these are the ladders to you, two Mew VMAX. (The 4:3 ratio is very common in the meta, but sometimes 4:2 works better.) One of the nice things about the Mew VMAX deck is that the Mew V doesn’t. just A ladder though.
With 1 Psychic Energy, Mew V can seek out any energy from his deck and attach it to a Fusion Strike Pokémon, allowing him early in a match or even near the end if the match gets into a strange stalemate. You can increase your strength.
Mew V psychic leap Deal 70 damage for that one psychic energy and return the card to your deck. “Why would you want Mew V back in the deck instead of evolving it to VMAX?”
What are you Might be so Instead, shove Mew V into the bench, have him use Psychic Leap once the active Mew VMAX reaches the final leg, and ban rival trainers from taking 3 prize cards. If you have another VMAX for him, keep sporting. But feel free to laugh it off.
How to use the updated deck
Nothing lasts forever. As we’ve already talked about, the Mew VMAX deck needs some tweaks, not to mention the difficult requirement of completely discarding rotated cards. (Unless you’re playing outside the official rules, but if so, have fun.)
We’ve laid out the typical winning formula for Pokemon, and it doesn’t change with rotation. But what about trainer cards? After all, in this world the world is your corridor. The more you switch things up, the more chances you have of catching the enemy team off guard. Feel free to experiment with new cards. don’t forget tHis deck was heavy on trainer cards, but the new changes made it even heavier.
That being said, there are some staple items you can’t live without. boss’s orders,The first one. power tablet Increases damage from Fusion Strike Pokémon by 30 for 1 turn. This is the great part. All four in the deck can be used at once if desired. Are things getting closer to loss than you thought?
sample deck list
Let’s share a sample Mew VMAX build to see it all come together. Remember, as always, you are free to adjust to your heart’s content. Some cards are mandatory. Some can be manipulated gently or changed completely. The most important cards (besides Mew, of course) are Genesect, Fusion Strike Supporter, and the aforementioned important boss orders and power tablets.
The Battle VIP Pass and Forest Sealing Stone are perhaps just as important new additions. Fusion Strike Energy is clearly a must, with 3 Double Turbo Energy doing a great job covering more bases, giving this an impressively lean 7 Energy build. Remember, the point behind that leanness is to load the trainer, not the Pokemon. You only need 10 creatures to do this click.

switch cart deluxe
What’s better than a simple Switch? A quick switch that heals 30 damage. This is a short explanation, but it’s a simple concept.
How will Miu VMAX change in the future? Of course, it won’t be long before it has to be disassembled and completely discarded. But the core purpose, the way it works, they could carry over to similar cards. It’s a great approach, and one that’s also clearly malleable as our decklist has changed over time.
