    Having only one copy of your main attacker in your deck is generally never a good idea, because ideally, you want to have one set up on the Bench to take its place after so you can keep attacking with, say, Lucario ex's Aura Sphere. Alternatively, run Brilliant Stars Lucario with it, and increase your Riolu count to 3 or 4.

    Having Armaldo as the one Stage 2 in the deck is not recommended. When you play a Stage 2, it has to be worth it because setting it up is already a lot of trouble on its own. For example, Pidgeot ex is worth it because its ability is really good.

    NEVER run SVI Skwovet without another Pokémon like Mew ex, or, better, BRS Bibarel, because Skwovet makes you have only one card in your hand, and you really want to recharge to have more options ASAP.

    Bring more draw supporters into the deck.

    Don't bring an unevolved Pokémon into your deck without its evolution, unless it has an a good ability (not attack) in its own right that make it better than its evolution card.

    Less energy (20 is a lot), more Trainers, and duplicates of Pokémon you REALLY want to use for maximum effectiveness with Lucario.
