Well I guess I had 2 do this sometime. I live 10 minutes away from the Convention which is a Plus. I love Columbus!! Anyway I have DuskQueen and Monarchy built, but I hatwe thier match-up's against Empoleon. So I dicide 2 put an old Empo list together and don't have the stuff 4 it. Scared 2 barrow from someone b/c of an event that occured @ last years nats I jus said screw it. Then my good friend Kim told me jus 2 run her GG which was weird as heck! With no other deck in mind, I accept sadly and get ready 4 the tourney..... On w/ the report- R1- Guy BanBliss/CessBeach Lock Oh fun, Banette. I take a couple prizes then this guy jus gets good set upand runs though me. I'm ok though. Remaining Prizes- 1-3 I'm losin. Grab that duskull with psychic, rare candy DRE. No Hard Feelings right?:lol: GG 1-0 R2-Cool Lady Empoleon/ Bronzong I love the way this deck plays! She had T2 Empoleon, but I had T2 Gallade. Flipped over 4 for 130 and she couldn't get goin after that. GG 2-0 R3- Stephen BanBliss OMG I hate this deck, but love stephen. One of my fellow Ohioans! Wish I could have gave him a better game though. I had Duskull start 2 his Chansey.I should last a few turns w/ my resistance right? WRONG!!!!!! T2 Blissey boost stregth charm. I had a Ralts 2 but the story isn't much different. BTW my hand= Gardy, Gallade, Gallade, Scramble, Crap. Anything missing? GG 2-1 R4- Nice Lady Empoleon/ Bronzong This was a fun one. We both got get up and it went 2 time. I'm pretty sure my psychic locking her claydols and suicunes didn't help her 2 much. If it wasn't 4 time, I think she would have had me! 3-1 R5- Erik Nance BanBliss U know the bad thing about winning? U gotta play other people who keep winning. Man that blows. Anyway, he gets T2 Banette, beach and cess on me. Guess he knew wat he was up against. It's a good thing he couldn't get his banette in the discard only doin 40 4 about three turns. I set up a gallade and went work. I was worried he may have a lake boundry lurkin somewhere, but he didn't. We trade prizes. Then I finally get my dusknoir set up. Palm his lunatone and bring down the shuppet. Tied 2-2 I had Gallade, Gardy, Claydol, Dusknoir. He had 2 Blisseys. Both of my prizes were unflipped. His blisseys weren't tanked up so I took advantage. Got out the lake boundry and flip over one 4 psy cut. K.O. Next Turn Re-Run! That was a great game. The windstorm pulls were way lucky! Erik Nance is a great player and sport!:thumb: Hope 2 play u again. 4-1 After 5 rounds I'm 4-1 and in 30th place out of 500+! This is a wierd feeling 4 me, as I don't do well in tournaments. But don't worry! I would feel my usual way again soon enough!:biggrin: R6- Pretty Girl Gardevoir/ Empoleon IDK wat happened 2 me this game I jus broke down. We both had good set up, but I was pretty sure I had the advantage. I was makin misplays left and right. Soon time was called and I was down 1 on her turn. GG 4-2 R7- Some Guy Eeveelutions Holy Crap! Something other than gallade or empoleon! NO WAY!! T3 Leafeon Lv. X. K.O after K.O.. I finally I kill it. He brings up Leafeon and premier balls.Come on man!! I couldn't get him. GG 4-3 R8- Another Guy Mirror I can't think while playin the mirror match. Plus he knew his deck better than I did. GG 4-4 R9- The Last Guy MagKiss I do not wanna play @ this point. He got wat he needed anyway and I let him cream me. 4-5 Wow. Well anyway, overall I had alot of fun. I didn't plan on makin Top Cut, but when the opportunity comes wat r ya gonna do! Thats how I felt after R5 when I was 4-1. 4 anyone who reads this thank u and I hope u enjoyed it! Props- 4-5 @ Nats Dusknoir The Ohio players steppin up. Uncle Mike 4 kickin butt @ nats.
