Between Keldeo and Darkrai is Scramble Switch the A-Spec of choice? I think Comp Search, Sableeye, Darkrai, and Dark Patch shenanigans is like that.

Yeah, my friend suggested the Scramble, but in all reality it's just subpar, so I'll probably go back to the Search.

I think 3 Absol is a little much, 2 should be fine. You should really have 3 Sabeleye and 2 Keldeo. If you don't have 2 Keldeo and you play gothgor, you pretty much just lose.

I would play Computer Search for definite. 

Absol is great at 2 and any more than that isn't really necessary.

Yeah, I changed out the Scramble for Search.   I'm also going to drop the 3rd Absol, but I'm contemplating playing either a 2nd Keldeo or a 4th Darkrai.  It's tough to decide.

I have recently switched from Blastoise to Darkrai and, because I had the Keldeos anyways, I decided to try out 2. I haven't been disappointed by it yet. It's so good.

i don't get why you'd play more than 1 absol, i'd much rather nightspear. only time i wanna mindjack would be with laser and claw for a ohko but that's so rare it seems gimmicky to play 2-3 imo. it's good for a surprise ko but after that they won't fill up the bench again and you're better off nightspearing.

I guess it gives you a few more outs to PlasmaKlang (Even though it has seen less play recently). It's not uncommon to be facing a full bench against Plasma Basics either, and there may be some situations where you would want to 120 (140 is with claw) to just the active pokemon rather than spreading out the damage like you would with Night Spear (I.E. 120 to Blastoise or Plasma Kyurem with Laser/Virbank OHKOs them.)

I should mention that Darkrai should still be your main attacker. 2 Absol seems to be the magic number. 

I also enjoy the suprise factor around it. You can hold it in hand mid/late game and then drop it and manually attatch + Patch/Energy Switch for the 2 energies it needs to do decent damage.

i agree with absol at 3, he puts in sooo much work and is a non ex which will be important vs a lot of match ups, hes particularly strong vs plasma which will probably be the most popular deck for nationals, also turns klinkklang into auto win and is also good vs gothitelle decks.

What do you think are the chances that Darkrai is still going to be legal in the next few sets?

I'm going to be switching back to my Blastoise deck for a while until I can pick up plasma, Cradily/Nidoking/Nidoqueen (Post Blast), or Accelgor/Gothitelle.
