Talk:Deck archetype (TCG)
Ok what if I know the the typical decklist and strategy/point of the deck (both from experience going against and using the decks) but I don't know any verbatim history? (like who first popularized it, etc) What do I do?? I can do Gardy+Gallade, Mother Gengar/Queengar, Salamence+Delcatty, Scizor+Cherrim, Shuppet hit-and-run, Palkia LV.X+Flygon (Stallgon), and Shaymin LV.X+Yanmega (thats my home deck but I'm sure some others have used it). So I know alot. --Sivart345 20:33, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
- Oh, those are some good decks. It really would be great to have someone else writing these... if you don't know a particular section, leave it blank with a tag stating that the section is incomplete. I should be able to clean it up once you finish. Include as much as you can, though. --ニョロトノ666 20:40, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
When adding decks
Add Wiggly Deck!
Wigglytuff decks from Jungle-on was a very powerful deck, possibly on par with Haymaker, though it was a completely different deck. They were generally run with Cleffas and Scythers to help fill the deck up quickly. -- Nick15 05:15, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Night March Page?
Night March is a huge deck in the format, and has been huge since it was printed. I believe it deserves its own article, similar to Porydonk (TCG) I'm still new to this forum thing -Pikachu6780 (talk) 00:09, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
I know I love giving my decks creative names and some of these decks are so well known that only a novice wouldn't know what they were called... but then again a novice is probably the one that needs to look up well known decks. When we get to the less well known decks or archetypes from the past, it can be quite frustrating to have to click through multiple articles because the deck has a name that doesn't mention any of the key cards or effects by name.
So perhaps there is a better way to list (possibly even name) these articles? Some decks are very fluid so it might take some tinkering to make it work but having two columns, like "Primary Name" and "Primary Focus" with the former being the general deck name and the latter being the main card of the deck would help out a lot. By designating them as "Primary" it clues people in that there can be variation, but it still makes it so you don't have to remember the "kewl name" a deck was known by when someone added it to the Wiki. I'm a long term player and if I am getting confused, I pity the newbies.
