    4 4 4 4 4 4
    6 3 3 3 3 6
    3 3 3 3

    10 4 4 4 4 10
    3 3 3 3
    3 3 3 3

    10 4 4 4 4 10
    6 3 3 6

    lol, i shuffle similar to the way Jeremy shuffles. simple 6-pile, but in a zigzag pattern.

    I'll do my way, then your way, then some normal deck shuffling, taking the cards, putting them down, shuffle. And take some spread. I do it all over the place. And then I draw, mulligan... XP

    Typically after each round in a tournament I count out four 15 card stacks. I then shuffle each stack by itself, then two together, then the two 30 card stacks together. 6 stacks of 10 cards works much the same way. Doing this not only randomizes your deck well, but it also allows you to make sure you have all your cards after each round.

    Yea, same with my looooooong way. I should start mizing it up so maybe I won't keep mulliganing myself.:p

    I put my starters in 4 piles. So say my starter is Absol:

    Absol Absol Absol Absol

    Then I just randomly place the cards.

    I do a stack shuffle except I have 3 rows of 4, 5 in each pile. But most of the time I just take my deck and... it's sorta hard to explain. Bonsly knows though!

    I like that FB:p
    BR: Yea, you just take some and then spread it around in your hands if that's a good enough description. XP

    I just shove the cards into one another several times. If my cards were put into order because of a deck check, I'll six pile plus shoving the cards into one another. Sometimes if I have enough time before a round, I'll three or six pile along with my standard style.

    6 piles and put 10 in each pile then shuffle 3 piles together and do it with the other 3 piles and shuffle them together

    I used to do 6 pile but i have started 8 piling because it seems to give me better results.

    I like 6 or 3 pile since it gives a fair amount of conformation in the number of cards in your deck (don't want to be missing any or have too many :eek:). Why not 7 pile? That would probably be a bit luckier :thumb:.

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

    I was always wondering if this would be considered any type of cheating... this method would really help T2 decks with only 4 basics.
