Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX - Battle Deck - Primary Deck

This deck is one of the most balanced decks to come out of the new battle styles pokemon card expansion. Not only does it contain two of the rarest cards in the set, but many of the cards also have exciting alternate artworks so you can keep your deck looking fresh and unique for your own preferred look. If you like to take your opponents apart strategically a little bit at a time while simultaneously preventing them from dealing damage to your primary damage dealing pokemon, this is the deck you are looking for. Tactical card players will love the Urshifu decks, and I expect many variations to come from the base cards in this set. I've already started playing with a Dragapult VMAX variation that is very fun to play. For now, please see the set below and enjoy the newest change to the pokemon trading card game meta, Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX - Battle Deck.

Always Go First

When using the Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX Deck, you should always choose to go first if you have the option to do so. If you play this deck correctly, you should be able to use your Urshifu's best attack by your second turn. This will allow you to wreak havoc upon the rest of their cards. Many decks will still have low-level Pokemon sitting unevolved on their bench which and you can quickly send them to your opponent's discard pile. Once you have this advantage, you should wipe out their primary attackers to finish the match.

Urshifu V - Rapid Strike

This pokemon is one of the key components of the entire deck. When you first draw your hand, this is a strong choice for your starter pokemon. It is also a great pokemon to use your balloon trainer card on.

Crobat V

As one of the most versatile draw cards in the current Standard metagame, of course, Crobat V is included in our Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX deck.

Crobat V allows the player to draw until they have 6 cards in their hand when they play Crobat V to their bench. This is a fantastic card in the metagame because it allows you to draw a whole bunch of cards without using your precious 1 support card for that move. Most current decks include Crobat V.

Galarian Zigzagoon / Scoop Up Net - Secret Weapon - One Hit Quitter

The new rapid strike decks are all about landing as many small bursts of damage as possible to deal just the perfect amount of damage to knock out each of your opponent's pokemon until you have taken all 6 of your prize cards. Galarian zigzagoon makes it easy to do just that. Every time you play this card to your bench, you can apply 1 damage counter to your opponent's pokemon. Coupled with the Scoop Up Net trainer card, you can deal as many single hits as you need to finish the match.

Phoebe - Trainer Card

Phoebe is one of the new battle styles cards that is a must-have card for decks like Urshifu to deal with big prevention decks like decidueye. Without Phoebe, you won't be able to kill your opponent's decidueye, and it will be a slow and painful loss.

Martial Arts Dojo - Trainer Card - Stadium

Martial Arts Dojo brings a refreshing feel back to the stadium card pile, especially in fighting pokemon. Urshifu will often be just a couple of hits short of knocking out the opponent's pokemon. Depending on whether you are ahead or behind on prize cards, you can do an extra 1 or 4 damage by having Martial Arts Dojo on the playmat.
