OK, so I played my Kingdra ex d deck that you guys have all been helping me with in. This will be my first tournament this year. I got there and got the 2 Wagers and 2 Buffer Piece that I needed. I also had to borrow another Kingdra ex d from my friend and local Professor, Mr. V. Deck: Kingdra ex d Swarm Age Group: Seniors Attendance: 8 Cut: Top 2 Here's my list: Pokemans 4 Horsea d 2 Seadra d 4 Kingdra ex d 2 Spearow 2 Fearow d 3 Holon's Castform 1 Shellder 1 Cloyster Trainerz 3 PETM 2 Steven's 2 TGW 3 Mentor 3 Castaway 3 Windstorm 3 Rare Candy 1 Night Maintenance 2 Lake Boundary 3 Buffer Piece 1 Crystal Shard 1 Strength Charm NRG 7 Fighting 4 d Rainbow 3 Cyclone The Crystal Shard wasn't really needed but the R-Gon decks were out there. Now I know what you guys will say, "Cloyster stinks, don't play him." You will see why later on. Round One: Keaton G. (Spoinkmaster) Kricketune Well, my first match this year and it's against Keaton who got T16 at Worlds last year. I wasn't going to let that get to me. I set up with Holon's Castform and 2 Horsea on the bench. Keaton mulligans 4 times. He finally gets a Kricketot out and we start. I get a Seadra out and a Fearow. He Wager's me and I lose, drawing 3. He has 3 Kricketunes out and sets up another. I use my own Wager on the next turn and win, drawing 6. Set up a Kingdra ex and a Fearow. He hits the active Kingdra for 70. My Fearow sets up another Kingdra for me and I knock out a few Kricketunes. When I get my 3rd Kingdra out, he only has 2 Kricketunes. He concedes. 1-0 Round Two: Dave R. Blissvire Great. Another opponent straight out of Hawaii. He got a T2 Blissey and just dominated me from here. I had a number of Horsea and a Kingdra in my hand. I could never get that Rare Candy or Seadra in this 15 turn game. :nonono: 1-1 So, if I wanted any chance at going on to the Top Cut, myself, Keaton and Dave would all have to win the next round. Round Three: Drake V. Empoleon/Lucario See. This is why I insisted to put in the Cloyster. I get a Holon's Castform and 2 Horsea out. He started with... PIPLUP! YES! No T1 Riolu donk. I set up a Kingdra fairly quickly and KO a Prinplup and a Lucario with only 2 energy attached to Kingdra. Cloyster is setup on my bench. I attach the 3rd energy and set up another Kingdra. He brings up a charged Empoleon. He tries to attack the Horseas on my bench and can't because of Cloyster. I 2HKO his Empoleon for the win. 2-1 Keaton wins, I win and Dave loses. :nonono: Well, I don't get into the Top 2 but my friend does and ends up winning the whole thing. WITH MARIO! OMG! :lol: I ended up getting 3rd and nothing but a RH Bebe's in my 2 packs. Props: My friend Danny only losing to Sean Foisy in his first Masters Tourney. Team Legion (2 First places and 2 Third places this year!) Matthew for winning (and trading me a lot of stuff) Derek for telling us when MI States are (March 8th at Jackson MI, Holiday Inn) Slops: Holiday Inn for tripling their prices which means no more Holidome tournaments Blissey ('nuff said) 2 packs for sucking.
