hm, the official website says there's 66 characters but they've only shown 65, which makes me believe there's at least one new character left. I hope its Spring Man.
Nah, it's 66.
65 doesn't include Echo Fighters, but it does include Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard as seperate bodies.
65 -2 Pokemon, +3 Echo Fighters = 66

You mean the deck that was worse than the variant that succeeded it, with no new releases between, and only took the format by storm due to bandwagoning OCG???
Alliance is a +0. IDK how you think it's a +1, nor do I understand how you can even begin to say it's a problem. Not to mention that Sorc generally requires Chronograph or the PS to be activated.
Also, forgot to touch on Scout further, but scout's deck is more synergetic, more stable (somehow), and has the ability to use Scout multiple times in a turn.
Plus, Scout isn't more Xenophobic. It and Monolith saw some play as a 2-card engine in Metalfoe, because it was an easy means to amass 2 bodies for CyDra Infinity. This lacks that sort of potential.
Actors are definitely bad. They got 90+% of their anime support, if not all of it, and then some. Yeah, there are 4 more cards here which could change it, but the deck thus far is a ridiculous mishmash of opponent dependancy.
And this isn't even covering your far more opinionated points...

"Mm." Came Professor Cedar's hesitant response, followed by a brief nod. "By culture I mostly mean social habits. Though also I've found that Pokemon have their own forms of art, religion, and languages..." She caught herself before she went on for too long and straightened her glasses. "In any case. Popplio families tend to spend their time bonding with their young by creating water shows together. It's hard to observe as they tend to avoid showing anyone these shows until they've perfected them. Moreover they tend not to perfect it until they've evolved, so it doubles as a sort of coming of age rite."
"Ah, Etoile and I already do practice her water tricks! She does not have the best control of her balloons yet, but she does have one down!"
Excited to show off her young Pokemon's perfromance, Genny sent Etoile out, sparkles filling the space around the baby as she emerged.
"Utilises Anneau Hydro, mon papillon!"
With a happy bark, the sea lion stood on her hindflippers, proudly sticking her head up with her eyes closed, arms out wide as the rings began to spin around her, the sparkles from her appearance accenting them nicely.
"It is not the balloons that Popplio normally use, but she is coming along nicely, non?" The entertainer beamed, proud of her little performer.

"Nah, you're stuck with us 'til the end." Ivan said jokingly, earning a cocked brow from Genny. She was about to question his mood when he sighed before coughing. "Sorry for givin' ya such a hard time back then. I'm sure the last thing you needed was some bonehead berating you."
"Why, Monsieur Ivan... Everyone has their moments, non?" Genny smiled softly, shaking her head, "It is in the past... Though, I must say I am surprised that monsieur has taken such a shine to me~"
Walking ahead of her male companion, Genny's smile faltered slightly as she looked at the town, gripping one of her elbows with her opposite hand. She steeled herself as she made sure to return the smile to her face, resolving herself.
This town has nothing to do with home... And this region is likely full of towns like this. I came to spice places like this up! I can't afford to let myself be shaken like that!
The professor was, as expected, a hermit... But Genny had not been prepared for the woman to be such a curmudgeon, yet she would also recite such a speech. Genny was thoroughly baffled by the woman before her.
"We did not come here for anything in particular. Jackie here simply wanted to meet you!" Genny reproduced her smile, tilting her head slightly as she closed her eyes, "Though... When you say Pokemon Culture, do you mean how species interact amongst themselves? If so, do you know about Popplio, by any chance?"

Shiranui really doesn't fit the deck as a name, especially without sword tbh.
I think a lot of the cards here are pretty standard. I think O-Lion and Summon Sorceress aren't quite, but they work well with the Sky Striker engine.
Speaking of, the Sky Striker engine allows me to trade in mid-late power plays (Sword) for early enabling plays that are really helpful, and it really requires the same amount of ED space as sword. Given that this deck needs to establish ASAP to attempt to outvalue the opponent between Snows, Omega, and Borreload, it makes more sense to run this engine than a card you need to set up like Sword.
Not to mention, Engage/Hornet + Tuner + Mezuki gets you Summon Sorc + 2 Omega + Snow in grave, with 2 cards to spare, hopefully handtraps or disruption.
The engine also synergizes really well with Omega, because you can use the cards in DP/SP before he returns, plus he can clear himself to turn them online. Having a Widow Anchor set after making Omega(s) feels nice.
I put the second in because I can reliably make it, and it feels like it gives the deck a wincon other than just killing opps going second, because you can "grind" opponents out between omega, Snow, handtraps, Anchor, and Infinite Impermanence. Slowing your opponent down when your deck makes value from cards previously set up really helps.
I also use him as a regular old Link material fairly often, because he allows me to recover lost resources. Plus, he can usually be remade the turn he's sent to the grave.
Now, the deck does burn out a bit in the later game, so the real idea is to grind your opp's resources down fairly quickly, then just punch them. Borrel aids a lot in this, because he breaks boards and steals their best dude... But that's pretty obvious.
I had Quariongandrax, but I cut him in favor of trying Yazi out. I wasn't making him much anymore, what with aiming for clear MMZs, and Yazi gives me spot removal.
Burial, Upstart, Plague, Spiritmaster, Yazi, and Formula are the cards I'm iffy on, but I wasn't sure what else to really do in those slots. Spiritmaster is one I look at really hard, because of how he works with Snow, so it's a case of if it's worth it for that one interaction/the rare chance he enables you early.
ask w/e, i have more to say but feel like i'd just be rambling

Why are you leaving blackwings on the field instead of going into links and Full Armored :thinking:
Like, the deck is stupidly good at fielding monsters, sure... But leaving a rogue BW on board is pretty fucking bad. Even then, isn't this, like... worse than Icarus Attack? You trade in additional potent removal and potential flexibility in what it tributes for the ability to get a bad beater from the ED. Whoohoo?
Nevermind that the monsters you field don't generate advantage, outside of Simoom. The links you go into are good for that.
also legit, Zephyros is fucking naff in the deck, Vayu doesn't exist, and Steam isn't sticking on the board.
It's a bad meme deck, but it's not the type of deck that wants this, much less to devote ED room to a bad card, albeit with Auster synergy. No clue why it can't access the better Black-Winged Dragon.
