    So after regionals i had no clue what to play for Nats. I rly wanted to win this after getting second last year so i knew i had to make the perfect deck choice. So up untill nationals i was going to play the exact list that mikey(sry mike not even going to try to spell ur last name) played and got top 4 with. So i arrive meet up with Bobby, Kant, aaron, steve , mikey, jeremy, and i meet chad and pramwat. After this kant introduced me to the one and only MATT CHIN. It was all going great until i relize I left Plox at home:[. SO i need something else to play well, Jimmy gave me his approval and told me about sausage, along with Erik Nance. So some time around 1:30 friday night i build it and played it once with steve(Thanks for everything this year bro) and hit the bed.

    So its saturday morning i go with sausage (ban bliss) and so it begins.

    Round 1 Lucario - I play against riolu and i use ghost head t2 win! yesss!

    Round 2 Empoleon- He gets piplup start and i start with mew* and a water energy and cess and i just spread till mew dies and the finish everything with blissey.

    Round 3 Empoleon- He got a good set up and started to spread damage evrywhere compared to my so so start. I just couldn't keep up. good game.

    Round 4 EEvee lutions- i got turn 2 blissey with cess and just started to run threw verything he had.

    Round 5- plox- i was able to get bannetes going and kept cess and beach in play and take this one.

    Round 6- Empoleon- I remmeber that this was a rly good game and i barely pullled it out thanks to the 3rd warp poitn(ily jimmy) to take the win.

    Round 7-??- i for get who i played and what it was i just remmeber i lost.:[

    Round 8-plox- I was kinda worried about this one because i knew he was a good player and i had to win. luckily i get a ban start and run threw everything he had.

    top 32-empoleon- I get a good start he dosen't and i just have and keep board control all game.
    game 2- same as 1

    top 16- i had to play curran again so i was still a little worried but i just get out baneette and cess and win.
    game 2-same as game 1

    top 8- so i got an invite 2 yrs in a row at nats and i'm pretty exited. i have to play empoleon and this is prolly my worst matchup (still very winnable) and i get a horrible hand and get goin and he gets t2 empoleon and i fold cuz i could tell he liked to use the clock and i just had no chance.
    Game 2- I drew no supporters all game and lose:[. so ik was dissapointed for not winning it this year but honestly i don't have nothing to complain about. 2nd last year and now 6th this year. And its all because of a few ppl i would like to mention.

    Steve silvestro- Bro i don't think i could've done everything i did this year without u. I appreciate everything u and your dad have done for me so much. Its been great times steve i <3 u.

    Jimmy- I wanted to say thanks on letting me on another jimmy ballard project i can't say i could've done so good without u man. I appreciate that a ton. It was great meeting u.

    Zach - Thanks for all the help testing for Nats. You've also helped me out a great deal. Take care and I'll see you at worlds.

    Mike Farrington(my dad)- Thanks for driving me to evnet after event there is no way i would be where i am without u. Thanks dad.

    Great job Garrett. When I heard you were playing Sausages, I figured outta 206 other players, you would draw my son (Alex) again in a mirror match. He top cuts Reg's if he didnt draw you 1st rd there w/ a mirror. He loves Blissey and really liked Banette, so we merged the 2 decks. The Mew * tech is the bomb with this deck. He was going to go straight lockdown Bliss, but we needed a bench sniper late game vs Empy and Mew * was the play. We carried it over to BanBliss (or Begfriend in your neck of the woods) and voila, nearly the same list as Sausages, w/o the Jimmy list! (Even had the Mew d for the grass decks)

    See ya at Worlds!


    PS Your Dad was great as my lead runner in JRs. Kept me up to date w/ the Hive!
