The Luminous Frost Theme Deck, along with Rock Steady, were released as part of the Burning Shadows set on August 4, 2017.
Luminous Frost focuses on the types.
This Theme Deck is available in the Shop for 500 tokens starting on August 4, 2017.
Luminous Frost may feature Burning Shadows non-GX Alolan Ninetales (whose ability prevents all damage and effects from Pokemon-EX and Pokemon-GX), but since the Theme Format is devoid of EX/GX Pokemon, Ninetales is of little help here. Still, Luminous Frost features some strong attackers in Kingdra, Bruxish, and Alolan Sandslash is a decent attacker and support Pokemon.
Kingdra with its Brine and Tornado Shot (both 1-energy attacks) are decent enough to be a deck of its own. Brine does 90 damage to 1 of your opponents Pokemon that has any damage counters on it. Tornado Shot does 90 + 30 to 1 of your opponents Benched Pokemon, but discards an energy to Kingdra. Tornado Shot followed by a Brine can weaken your opponents Active and take out a Pokemon on the Bench (90 to the Active and 120 to a Benched Pokemon in 2 turns).
Bruxish can also combo well with Kingdra here with its Synchronoise attack, which does 60 damage + 20 damage to each Benched Pokemon that shares a type with your opponents Active. Since Theme Decks (and most decks) feature only 2 types, chances are there will be some Benched Pokemon with the same type.
Alolan Sandslash (from Guardians Rising) does a mediocre 50 damage and then a mandatory switch with 1 of your Benched, but its Slush Rush ability allows you to draw an extra card each turn.
