I decide to play Blissey/Lucario because Blissey won all three age divisions at the Battle Road I went to yesterday and I think it works best with Lucario. I trade for/borrow 4 TV Reporters. Then one of my sleeves doesn't pass inspection so I borrow one of those too, only to have it rejected. The third sleeve I try passes, so on with the tournament. Masters Division Five Rounds Cut to top 4 Round 1: Holden [Gardevoir ex/Infernape/Machamp(PK)] I mulligan once. He mulligans five times, then gets a bad start with no energy. So me and my ten card hand get a relatively fast win. During our game the people next to us had like 12 Rock, Paper, Scissors matches in a row. 1-0 Lunch break: I go to Wendy's and pay $7.79 for a double cheeseburger, medium french fries and medium Coke. McDonald's has that same meal for $3.79. Round 2: David [Shiftry ex(PK)/Empoleon] I get a bodacious start with Happiny, Chansey and Blissey all in my hand. He starts with a lone Piplup. I knock the Piplup out quickly, but he gets a Shiftry ex out. He Skill Hacks twice, but can't get another basic out so I knock the Shiftry out ftw. 2-0 Round 3: Pedro [Nidoqueen(MT)/Nidoking/Dusknoir) He gets a very slow start and I get a medium one. I decide to read Crystal Beach while searching my deck just for fun and realize that the energy doesn't have to provide every type to be reduced to one colorless. I play four Boost so I will have to play around that mistake for the rest of the tournament. Then I get a caution for taking Castaway back to my hand with the cards that I got with it. He eventually gets a Rare Candy and makes an impressive comeback. Time is called and we're tied in prizes. I'm able to knock his Nidoking out so I win. 3-0 Round 4: Michael [Feraligatr (MT)/Magneton/Delcatty] I get an excellent start and he starts with a lone Totodile. I win T2. We play a fun match afterwards and I get no Chanseys/Supporters the whole game. It ends with him doing 280 damage to my Happiny. 4-0 Round 5: Michael P. (Mirror) I start with Happiny and he starts with Riolu. I go first and Baby Evolution and attach to Chansey. He attaches a Buffer Piece to Riolu and Wild Kicks. Instead of attaching a Boost to Chansey and using Double Edge ftw I evolve to Blissey and use Happy Chance for the not win. He gets a Lucario and pulls ahead. I can't catch up and lose. That's definitely the worst misplay I've ever made. 4-1 I make top cut and while waiting for Kevin to finish deck checks I watch Spencer, Michael, Luke, and Dan play a ferocious game of Candyland. In the end Dan wins and Michael gets second. Top 4 Jason(Rampardos/Lucario) Game 1 This game lasts 40 minutes. I don't remember any details but I lose. Game 2 He starts with Skull Fossil(Active) and Riolu. I start with Happiny. He discards the Skull Fossil and brings up his lone Riolu. I have an energy on Happiny and a Boost, TV Reporter, and a Mentor in my hand. I put my hand on TVR to try to draw the Chansey attach Boost ftw, then I realize I can Mentor for the Chansey so I do and get a T2 win. Game 3 I don't remember any details about this game either, but I think i got a caution at some point in our three games. The third game goes into Sudden Death and I win. Top 2 Michael P. (Mirror) Game 1 I don't remember much but I win. Game 2 I don't remember much but I lose. Kevin brings the prizes over and sets the eight packs and Victory Medal next to Michael and the three packs next to me, that meanie. Game 3 I think he mulligans five times. This match goes into Sudden Death too, my third of the day. I think I'm going to lose because he'll level up and Close Combat my Lucario ftw, then I realize his Lucario only has one energy. I attack, he levels up. I level up. He can't knock my Lucario out, so I knock his out and win.
