Blaine's Lava Pit (TCG)

The Blaine's Lava Pit Deck is a FireColorless type deck found in the Gym Heroes Strategy Guide. The deck is classified as one of the easy-to-build decks, containing more common cards and less strategy than advanced decks.


This deck focuses around Blaine's Magmar and its Lava Burst attack. To make the Lava Burst really effective, this deck needs Fire Energy—and plenty of it! Lava Burst puts a lot of cards in your discard pile fast, so we included some Nightly Garbage Runs to let you put Fire Energy back into your deck (for another Lava Burst).

When you can't use Magmar, just hit your opponent's Pokémon hard and fast with your other Pokémon. If you need some time to set up an attack, use Blaine's Ponyta. Its Agility attack can give you time to build up your better attackers. Unfortunately, Fire Pokémon are almost all weak to Water Pokémon, so this deck might have problems against a Water deck. To help with this problem we added some Colorless Pokémon as back up for Blaine's Fire crew.
