The Iron Tide Theme Deck from the Ancient Origins expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game focuses on Metal and Water type Pokémon. Like other Theme Decks, Iron Tide includes damage counters, a custom coin, one two-player mat, a Metagross deckbox and a TCGO deck access code. For both Iron Tide and Stone Heart, one of three different coins was randomly included in each deck, each a Silver coin of either Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, or Mega Rayquaza.


Fury of Waves, Song of Steel! Crush your opponents with iron or sink them in the depths—either way you wield the chilling might of the Iron Tide theme deck! With Metagross leading the way, this deck shines like steel from the start. Add in some big attacks like Forbidden Iron Hammer from Registeel and Hydro Splash from Vaporeon, and your opponent is awash in trouble, bubbles, and a steely doom! Then evolve Magikarp to Gyarados to truly thrash opposing Pokémon, and watch the tide of the battle turn in your favor!
