Hey Hey Hey We just got finished with our State Championship today around 7 o'clock or so? It was a long day...way longer than I hoped for, but it was awsome. It was the State Championships for Missouri and I won it!!! I wasn't really sure on what to play? I have always played Blaziken/Eggs from the start and I switched to Niniken for the CC's after talking to Mudkip about it for a while, then I switched back due to a gut instinct I had. I know Ninikin beats my version of the deck hands down...simply due to the weakness factor, but the deck is still very strong. I knew Kingdra/Ex, Swampert/Ex and a lot of the other biggies would be there. Ninetails can easily take them down (b/c I have done it in the past) but energy-wise, Eggs is more suitable for my environment. If I would have played Niniken 2Day, I wouldn't have won. blah blah blah...here's da deck. Smokey Weeds 27 Pokes 4 Dunsparce (SS) 4 Torchic (Dragons) 2 Combusken (Winner Promo) 4 Blaziken (Holo) 1 Blaziken Ex 3 Exeggcute (Aq – Psychic one) 3 Exeggutor (Aq) 2 Skitty 2 Delcatty 1 Ditto (SkyRidge) 1 Wobby 18 Trainerz 4 TV Reporter 4 Oracle 2 POR 2 Desert Shaman 3 Rare Candy 2 Switch 1 Town Volunteers 14 Flame Energy 1 Multi (4 Wobby just in case) Breakdown.... BeX - DERRR...it's broKen Ditto - its 4 Ray and other multi-tasking (almost lik3 a 5th 'Sparce) Wobby - This thing saved me/won me the game on more than 1 ocassion. I used it as a wall and 2 attack when needed Shaman - this card worked wonders for me. Early game when your opponent Oracle's with no Delcatty...it's great. Every game I played I had a Delcatty out. I always played Shaman when it was critical for my opponent to acquire certain cardz. I always got an energy card with Shaman so I'd use it on Delcatty 2 get 3 more cards. It worked 4 me! So in the 6 Rounds Swiss, I ended up going 4-2. I lost to a Mew2 Ex/Wobby deck either 1st or 2nd round due to a horrible draw, and BPBD's Swampert / Ex / Suicune Ex deck in like the 4th round?My deck just wasn't working for me in the Swiss Rounds. Almost as if God was Smiting me????? Going into the Top 8, I was the 8th Seed. The 1st seed was Undefeated with Sceptile / Ex and I smoked him 2 games in a row for the win. They were good games and he's an awsome player but I totally had the type advantage on him. Next round, I play a Salamence / Aero Ex deck. I smoked him the 1st game, he smoked me the 2nd game, and the 3rd game was close but I won due to my Eggs flips. For anyone who enjoys this..... NEWMAN was playing the Sally deck that I knocked outta the T4. Final match is between BPBD (Swampert / Ex / Suicune Ex) and I again. The 1st game was really close, but I kept dropping Blazikens and throwing energy around left and right. He had 2 prizes left and I had 1. I had 2 Blazikens on the bench, a Combusken w/ 3 energy on it and a BeX in my hand...he could do nothing. Outstanding game!!! The next game, neither of us got any draw the entire game, but he had 2 Mudkips in his prizes . I eventually won. In the Top 8, I had Dunsparce in my opening hand every game and I always had gawd hands (except the very last game w/ BPBD). Almost as if God suddenly started liking me???? The day was fun and I traded for a lot of cardz and I got lotsa packs and one of those nifty Pikachu Trophies for winning Gimmie a fix on the deck, cause I'm always looking for improvements.
