'''Metanite''' is a [[Pokémon TCG]] deck that utilizes the [[Holon Engine]], and combines the "Crush and Burn" attack of [[Metagross]] with the "Delta Charge" [[Pokémon Power|Poké-Power]] of [[Dragonite]]. The [[Holon Engine]] burns through the deck very quickly, allowing a player to root out their [[copies of {{TCG ID|EX Holon Phantoms|Rare Candy|90}}|Rare Candies]], which in turn will let the player quickly get their {{TCG ID|EX Delta Species|Metagross|11}} and {{TCG ID|EX Delta Species|Dragonite|3}} into play. As an additional speed boost for the deck, {{TCG ID|EX Holon Phantoms|Holon's Castform|44}}'s "Delta Draw" attack can give the player many extra draws.
 
==Cards==
 
The key cards in the deck are Metagross and Dragonite, both of which combine to form the deck's name. Of course, [[TCG ID|EX Delta Species|Holon Transciever|98]] and the rest of the [[Holon Engine]] are also crucial to the deck's success. {{TCG ID|EX Holon Phantoms|Holon's Castform|44}} is also a main tool because it can quickly give a player the cards they need to put together the Metagross/Dragonite combo, such as {{TCG ID|EX Holon Phantoms|Rare Candy|90}}, which allows a player to skip an evolution. And, naturally, the deck will not work without Lightning Energy.
 
==Restriction==
 
After the 2007 TCG World Championships, the {{TCG|EX Delta Species}} set will be restricted from [[Pokémon Organized Play]] in the {{Rotation (TCG)|Rotation}}, and {{TCG ID|EX Delta Species|Metagross|11}}, {{TCG ID|EX Delta Species|Dragonite|3}}, and most of the [[Holon Engine]] will be going with it, rendering the deck completely unusable. It was a deck that ruled the game for a long time, and banning it will begin a whole new format.
