1st SA Battle Roads, Saturday I don't get to use my bro's car anymore since he's back from college so he drops me off at Gamelot. Horrible turnout, I think like 6 people in Masters, only enough for 3 rounds and top 2, but whatever. Anyway the only deck I ever play, Speedrill, had been doing pretty good at league and I was too lazy to test other decks so I played that one. Here's the list: Pokemon (15) 4 Beedrill 3 Kakuna 4 Weedle 2 Claydol 2 Baltoy Trainers (35) 4 Bebes 3 Stevens 2 Island Hermit 4 Rare Candy 4 Great Ball 4 Quick Ball 4 Dusk Ball 4 Master Ball 3 Night Maintenance 2 Warp Point 2 Pluspower Energy (9) 2 Multi 7 Grass So yeah, Me, Frank, Robert and David were the only decent players there I think and here it goes. Round 1 vs. Frank (Empoleon/Omastar) I go 1st, with a good hand, 3 Quick Ball, Weedle, Baltoy, energy, and Claydol. I just CFF to get the Baltoy and end. He goes, and T1 WAGERS ME! And of course, I lose the wager and draw 3 cards none of which helped me. He draws 6 and then uses Phione to setup a Claydol. He ends up slowly getting setup while I get a Kakuna out. Eventually I ended up getting a Claydol, but the next turn, Empoleon Lv. X sniped it and I proceeded to lose miserably. 0-1 Round 2 vs. Torterra/Ape Nothing special. I get out Claydol and Beedrills fast and even though he had my weakness with Flareon he couldnt really do anything. 1-1 Round 3 vs. Azuril.dec All I saw was an Azuril and I had 2 Beedrills and Claydol out like T2. 2-1 So I end 3rd or 4th I think and I get a free pack. Then I go with David and Frank to Cicis and we chill and eat pizza. Overall, it was calm and fun even though I grew to hate Wager due to my loss. 2nd SA Battle Roads, Sunday Anyway, I rush over to Heroes and Fantasies and am too lazy to try out my Blissey/Chatot deck so I play Beedrill again, same exact list. Better turnout today and more competition Round 1 vs. Ben (Lucario Beatdown) OK, so I go 2nd and get a Claydol in hand with Baltoy on bench and some Weedles too. SO, it looks like I can get setup. Well, he goes ahead and TURN 1 WAGERS ME JUST LIKE YESTERDAY!! And what do you know, I lose! Anyway, from here I was convinced I was cursed and was gonna lose. I decided to play it out and somehow I managed to get setup with like 3-4 Beedrills and a Claydol due to some lucky draws. Anyway, it ended up goin to sudden death and he couldnt do 110 with any of his Beedrills, so I eneded up winning. Not sure how with all those cessations etc. 1-0 Round 2 vs. David (Empoleon/Omastar) Don't member much but we both get setup eventually. I had more momentum luckily because I could easily comeback from a lost Beedrill where as he struggled to get multiple charged Empoleons. Time was called and he was forced to use Omastar's Pull Down and bring back 2 of my candied beedrills and another one. I ended up winning by getting 2 Beedrill out and Warp Pointing. 2-0 Round 3 vs. Vince (GG/Porygon 2/Furret) So yeah, it seems like this would be a really good matchup. I get out some quick Beedrills and start owning. Then he comes back with a Cessation Crystal'd Gallade AND I lose in Rock-Paper-Scissors once again. So I'm left with crap and he proceeds to kill a quick 2 Beedrills ruining any chances of me making a game out of it. 2-1 Round 4 vs. ??? (Random) All I member about this was he had some insane luck with Speed Stadium and he started with Moltres. BUT, honestly I have no clue what the strategy was and I set up my 4 Beedrills and 2 Claydols with ease. 3-1 Well, I honestly didn't think my resistance was that high, BUT it turns out to be the highest, so I go to Top 2. I play Vince again in Top 2. Top 2 vs. Vince (GG/Porygon 2/Furret) Game 1 Honestly, I got crap compared to his T2 Gallade/Gardy or whatever he had, so I just scooped to save a lil time. 0-1 Game 2 I setup extremely fast and own his Pokemon in the beginning. I had tons of momentum and so I proceeded to win the game by swarming. He scoop'd to save time. 1-1 Game 3 Egh, he had a bad start, I had a decent one. I get a little swarm going, but I don't play fast enough and can't setup enough Beedrill to overcome his 110 and 130 HP Pokemon. SO, time is called and I'm down by 1 or 2 prizes. 1-2 2nd place aint bad though.
