'''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.
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.
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.
