How do 3 different decks consistently win?

    Every year, the World Championships decks have been printed as follows: all three division's champion decks, and a deserving 2nd place deck. What I find eerie, however, is the fact that all 4 decks manage to be different, that is, no 2 age divisions have ever had the same deck win. It is strange to me that, by chance, the decks are ALWAYS different, in this format especially. Most everyone was sure that GG would win all 3 age divisions, yet it somehow only pulled off one, and 2 rogues made it to boot into the deck print (Toxizor, Blissey, Plox, and Empoleon will be the decks). I don't understand... is there a curse that every year, 3 different decks will win?

    Yes, thats the only reason some people didn't play gg.They know the CURSE!!!!

    I think it is quite interesting how it plays out like that.

    There were only two decks that did well at Worlds:

    Big Stage 2 That Uses Powers and Scrambles
    Fast Stage 1 deck with Cessation and Crystal Beach

    ;P

    But 3 different ones won!How does it all come together so perfectly?!

    ...and every year? You would figure that in at least one of the 5 Worlds we have had so far, 2 of the same deck would have won...

    different metagame for each age group, player skill and how the players play.

    team magam won all of 2004 worlds age groups.

    Sorry, didn't realize that...

    Considering I wasn't a Metagame player then, does anyone know if Magma was worse of a metagame leader than GG? As in... more sweeping than it?

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    And either way, didn't GG run the board in all divisions generally? I don't see how the 3 divisions have a different metagame.

    Wow, if it was really like that in the past (to my ignorance, lol), then how did Plox manage to NOT take at least 2 divisions??

    Maybe not for the Japanese, but no American player knew about it.

    On Gardy not winning:

    "This whole phenomena is a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a government agenda."

    The Magma deck was a deck that was considered "not good" in the 2003-2004 season; some people played it, but it never had a consistant win streak or many American followers. That year was all about Blaziken variants and how to beat them... Right before worlds, Shiftry became popular, and at worlds, the metagame was very diverse..Shiftry, Walreign, Crobat, Swampert, Gardevoir, as well as a few Blaziken-to name a few. Most of the Japanese players played a very consisten Magma deck and pretty much dominated all 3 age divisions, although the Masters Division, (called 15+ division at the time), almost had a Blaziken win, but bad luck prevented Blaziken from winning and Magma pulled the win.
