  3. Updated 03/13/19 - Added Garb/Muk
  4. Updated 06/03/19 - Added Quagsire, Updated Granbull, Removed Dugtrio and Egg/Sceptile
  5.  
  6. General tips/commentary on budgetizing a list
  7. 1. Cynthia. With N and Sycamore no longer in the format, you'll want four of them. The Garchomp theme deck comes with two copies of it, and Erika works often as replacement.
  8. 2. Elm's Lecture and searching stadiums are generally the best way to replace the ability that Brigette gave you to rapidly fill your bench.
  9. 3. Run extra consistency. Most decks run only 6-9 draw/shuffle supporters since with Tapu Lele in the deck, every ultra ball leads to a supporter, but you can run up to 12 with 4 Erika/Lillie/Cynthia to help compensate.
  10.  
  11. These lists should be considered templates/skeletons or examples, individual card counts and extra additions will always come down to playtesting and personal preference (and also what you have available, poorfag).
  12.  
  13. Decks are left in importable format for the sake of convenience. To import a deck, just copy it to your clipboard, go to the TCGO deckbuilder, click new deck and press the import button at the bottom.
  14.  
  15. Keep in mind that budget in paper != budget online.
  16.  
  17. You can search this pastebin via the tags added to each list which indicate whether a list runs basics or evolutions, what types a list has and the general overall costs. Generally lists that include cards that cost more than a pack or so are [$$] and lists that have cards worth over 2 packs are [$$$], prices are constantly fluctuating so don't take that as a hard and fast rule. Decks with a [*] have recent event results. Yes, there are budget decks that are making cut at events/winning online fansite tournaments these days.

  62. Comments: One of the easiest to assemble standard decks, you will have many of the cards you need from buying two Mach Strike theme decks. Deck tends to run lower than normal counts of most supporters due to Garchomp's attack requiring you to have played a Cynthia. You can upgrade it with 2 fighting Gabites/Garchomps for Brooklet Hill searching and hitting Zoroark for weakness, but a number of dragon pokemon is optimal to still use mysterious treasure.

  105. Comments: Similar to Garchomp, you can get a lot of the cards you need for this deck from buying 2 Empoleon decks. That deck has the wrong Piplup as well IIRC, you want to run the 70hp one.

  144. Comments: There are a few interactions of SAPS (single prize/energy attackers with Shrine of Punishment) decks; some spread damage with pokemon like Weavile CRI and Tapu Koko and move damage counters with Tapu Lele, others use Buzzwole and stronger pokemon to hit like a truck. This list won Samuel Jacques second place in Santa Catarina along with other Buzz/Garb and Buzz/Weavile decks in seven of the top 8 spots. Shrine is around 2-3 packs but these decks do not rely on Lele GX. Zapdos is the new hot SAPS deck but due to Jirachi's pack cost is far from budget.

  166. Comments: This deck is the dumbest deck in this game and it should never work, but sometimes it does somehow, maybe like 10% of the time. It's the cheapest list, even cheaper than Garchomp since 56 of the cards are freebies. You can script a bot to run this piece of shit with no noticeable difference in play. You won't win much but if you just want a cheap dark deck for damage/KO challenges this will do it, if you want to maximize value efficiency you can even just run 1 and 59 energy at the cost of more mulligans.

  201. Comments: Garbodor is a good attacker that punishes item heavy decks but most opponents can go around trashalanche; a-muk from team up helps you get good damage earlier trying to chew the opposing deck. Alchemy muk fits in the deck to disrupt lighting and other decks, often better than the draw power your orangurus provide (as they also lose the abilities).

  240. Comments: 160 damage WHOOWEE! The bright pink scheme of granbull's card undermines how good this beast is if you manage to lose your hand's cards every turn, dealing more than garbodor and weavile in the early game. Even 4 viridian forest and some dianthas help your hand's consistency. The oranguru/magcargo engine is crucial for this deck to work.

  284. Comments: Only the japs to make three pokemon that use 4 energies, one being from shining legends, viable in the same deck. This list replaces lele gx for marshadow and can go in a lot of directions: abuse koko if the opponent can't attack or retreat, counter zoroark with onix, try prize trading with giratina... You could even fit promo lele (the psychic one) to move damage lategame.

  313. Comments: Don't be too fooled by Gyarados's potential 240 damage with one energy; having 36 fucking energies in the deck pays off with lack of consistency, and on the first turns not every revealed card is an energy. But if the deck can be built irl under $10, who's to complain? It does not even need common staples like Cynthia.

  355. Comments: Jumpluff cost a ridiculous ammount of 4-5 packs even before making a top 8 until it became a rogue deck for good in Team Up. You'd want a Lele GX instead of a Marshadow but this list can still net some wins against bigger tier decks.

  394. A word of warning: Budget lists in Expanded tend to be at a larger disadvantage than in standard and tend to be slightly costlier. Computer Search is included because it was available as a ladder reward, lowering its long-term value online. IRL it is not a budget card, and some cards that are fairly inexpensive online (like Exeggute PLF) are not IRL.

The list is built around using Sableye's Junk Hunt in conjunction with Life Dew to stall. You force them into a situation where they deck out first using trick shovel. This is a new spin on the list as it contains potential attacking options.

  509. Comments: Similar to standard Volcanion-EX but with a higher focus on Turtonator due to Blacksmith's ability to return fire energy from discard syngerizing with its Bright Flame attack, the fact that Turt has higher HP doesn't hurt either. Muscle Band is an option over FFB in this deck since it makes the Zoroark numbers work a little better at the price of leaving your pokemon vulnerable to a full sky field OHKO from Riotous Beating.

  549. Comments: I never thought I'd be making a budget list with Shaymin-EX, but the card isn't worth much these days. Night March is pretty straightforward, the deck has very useful weakness matchups these days with Marshadow being able to OHKO Zoroark and PikaRom somewhat easily. Watch out for Oricorio and Karen, this deck was cancerous enough to get 2 different hard counters (3 with trump card) in the past.

  585.  
  586. Comments: A similar style of list built around getting lots of pokemon in discard to power up Vespiquen and Flareon's attacks, both of which do more damage for each pokemon in discard. Blacksmith gives you a way to play with basic energy cards and ensures you're never out of attackers before you're out of prizes, since the deck is built with losing your active each turn in mind. Running such a high Shaymin count isn't strictly necessary if you want to economize a bit, most of them will be discard sitters but it's good to have more of them for consistency.

  631. Comments: An infamous ascended meme designed to fuck Gardevoir-EX's day up back when that was a dominant standard deck using a very unique lucky helmet draw engine combined with the Double ancient trait, which lets Gyarados equip two tools. A max damage Full Retaliation comfortably hits 210 which is ideal for the majority of the stage 1 GX being played right now, and the CIN Magikarp has built in protection against spread damage that hard countered this deck in the old days. Team Magma's Secret Base is the spendy card here, but you can't skimp on it.

  670. Comments: Turbo Darkrai has fallen off a fucking cliff, in 2017 it was winning every other event in standard and now here it is at meme tier in expanded. Being meme tier, the cards to play it are fortunately much cheaper. You have a ton of options for energy acceleration/recovery in this deck via dark patch, max elixir, darkrai-GX's ability, ect so when things go well you can have some very explosive turns. Hypnotoxics are good for dead end GX and also let you hit an odd damage number with Darkrai-BKT (your 'turbo' attacker) for the 190/210 hp cards, choice band also lets you do this. The amount of hate around due to the bullseye on Zoroark/PikaRom's back makes this list a little miserable to play at times unfortunately.

  766. Comments: An old idea involving big basics that Simon Trottier piloted his way to top8 in Toronto. Mew copies your whole bench, Articuno is an late-game attacker, Sableye and Oranguru bring back energies and counter gain from the discard pile... Some cards in this list seem random but have an actual purpose against the meta.

  809. Comments: The only advantage this has over nightmarch is not sharing some counters like oricorio and milling, because you're doing less damage than it on average. Still, it is a fun deck to pilot without needing a GX in the list. You can also cram the lighting rotom there for beating trainer challenges.

  854. Comments: This deck's idea has been around since expanded came out but got some life with LTS Clamperl, letting you use he main attacker on the first turn (if you go second, but you don't want to force that). If you liked being a rainbow sucker with Exeggutor here you bring the energies to the table and not just let them discarded. Also while this is budget Huntail is a bitch to get in public trades because of its scarcity, so hope you can deal with forum trading!
