... Never been one much on reports about each match (besides how can you top a Kettler report). I just report on the tourneys as a whole and what deck I played and what I played against. This season my Mob of 4 became a Duo, due to Nancy judging and Heather working. Dale and I both played the deck we played during CC's. Bancario/Crystal Beach with the Fishing engine 2.0 with different tweaks in each. In OK I run into Gardy mostly, which my list of 2 celio and 3 visits makes the match up harder than usual and bites me in OK top 8. For TX I switch them out for a max on quickball, max on birch and 2 island hermits. The change worked great against Gardy and others but would be my downfall in top 8 against Magphlosion when Lucario LX evades me the whole game. Even thou I didn't place above 5th in either state, I was one of only two that made top 8 in both states, John K. being the other. So my record for OK is 5-2 and for TX is 7-1. In OK I don't recall lopsided luck going my way. The games usually came down to the wire. But in TX 2 of my games I was able to way out speed the other deck and bench them for the win. Another match, against Magphlosion, my deck timed everything precisely and allowed me to make moves for a win that is usually 60-40 in Mags favor. IMO, Even thou the field was mostly Gardy(heavy in OK) and Magphlosion (heavy in TX). Other very solid decks seen and played against where Exploud/claydol, Blissey, Electrivire and Empoleon/claydol. Dale did well at each. 3rd in OK, losing to a good friend and mirror match, then missing top 8 on resistance in at 9th for TX. Don't remember OK top for seniors but TX was 2 Gatrs, 2 Bancarios, 2 Magmortors, Gardy, Mario. Both tourneys were ran very well. Props to all that had a hand in them! It was great seeing everyone. Now onto Regional’s, which will be an overgrown State ( or was states a mini regionals?), but maybe I'll be able to come up with another Great Rogue Deck.
