    A very long day for me in Memphis, TN indeed. I get to the tourney at 10 and play a few practice games with my deck (GFG with Dusknoir TecH) which I haven't touched since regs. I go on to win the tourney, jumping 12 points and 15 places back into T50 in NA. Thanks for reading!:smile:

    Round 1 against Josh S with Blissey/Weavile/Darkrai

    When the game starts, he uses all of his cards in the first 3 turns or so, and can't get any energy into the discard pile. I setup a gallade with furret and just kill anything he sends up. He got all of his pokemon out, but he only had 1 evolution out at a time. I win.


    Round 2 against a GUY named Angel M with Aggron/Dialga/Rotom/Raichu/Electivire/more

    I thought that this kid was a n00b cuz when I saw his deck before, he had about 6 trainers. I have a bad start (Unknown Q), and he gets setup with a dialga, rotom, zapdos, and aggron. Eventually I get out a gardy and the only game that I NEED Bebe's/Rosseane's instead of draw, he plays mars, mom's, and Oak. Later I get setup with 10 minutes left in the round, and he has drawn 3 prizes. In the end I win because of Gallade sweeping through his entire deck, and he couldn't flip heads on agility with raichu. He had me scared though.


    I can't find McDonalds and then a kid moves my drink onto my seat, and I don't know, so you can guess the rest...​

    Round 3 against this kid named Brian with Magnezone/Empoleon and friends

    I didn't know this kid, but he was pretty cool even though he didn't say much,,,though he kept "daydreaming" at my deck as I shuffled. I get a bad start (Unknown Q AGAIN) and he gets a T2 Empoleon MD. His deck wasn't that bad, but he misplayed a couple of times. After a while, I am setup thanks to Stantler and Furret, and I run through his deck with Gallade as well.


    Round 4 against Louis T with Bannette/Scizor

    This sucked, because Louis's deck was made to have like a 99 percent chance of winning against mine and his ranking is below 1600. I ge a half-decent start, and he gets a good one. he gets T2 Bannette and starts iniallating my deck. I finally get a furrett out and get 1 gallade setup with a 3 basic energy and he has 3 prizes left. From there I go aggro, and he can't pull much anything (energy included) and misplays a little. It comes down real close, and I pull off the win. Yayyyy!!! I beat the deck built just to beat mine.

    NOTE: This game, after I started using keen eye, he kept marsing before I was finnished shuffling from keen eye and had no chance to shuffle my three card hand. The third time that this happened, I asked a judge and he said that I had the right to shuffle my hand and to tell my opponent to wait until I was ready. He also played 4 crystal beach and 4 cess which were quite annoying.


    Round 5 against Kevin W with T2 Bannette and Electrode TecH

    I had been dreading this match all day even though I knew that he had a lot of points for me to get, but what ev. My start: Unknown Q FOR THE THIRD TIME!!! I draw into a rosseane's and send up a stantler and he kills right after I lead. Next turn I send up a sentret and celiio's for a furrett then keen eye for the other needed cards to pull off a gallade with a scramble. I planned for him to have a plus power in his hand (being Kevin), which he did, and he kills my furrett. Next turn I wager his 9 card hand down to six, and then kill his bannette. He did 100 to my gallade and then I get out a dusknoir with my second furrett after retreating. He already ER2'd my scramble on my gallade. I then attack with Gallade and we trade prizes, then I KO another bannette with my dusknoir. He sends up a voltorb with a benched shuppet, and from his hand he lays down energy, shuppet, Electrode, plus power, and strength charm KO'ing my Dusknoir. I have 2 prizes and he has 1. I send up my lone ralts, evolve into Kirlia, and wager. He wins it. I attack with Psychic Research, hoping that he doesn't get a bannette this time, and for the first time I win the wager. If he doesn't have a bannette, I WIN!!! He plays bannette and wins. Later I find out that He got a bannette in every hand that round. Oh well.


    ~I make top cut as well as Vuth T; Benny V; and Kevin W, coming in 3rd, and know the deck that I am about to play.~​

    Top 4 against Benny V with Beedrill- Dusknoir TecH

    Game 1: I mainly attack with Gallade and he gets setup. After some judging on a confusing play, I can't do anything cuz of cripple beach and him KO'ing my only gallade and I scoop.
    Game 2 with less than 30 minutes left: This game I go aggro with gardy, and dusknoir helps alot b/c he benched a 4th pokemon, so I get 2 beedrill's out of the way in 1 turn. Psylock FTW.
    Game 3 with 12 minutes left: He gets setup a little faster than I do, but I go for a quick Gardy and Psylock FTW again.

    FINALS against Vuth T with Infernape

    Game 1: I setup with furrett and go for a quick gardy ( I learned my lesson last game). He benches 5 pokemon and plays steven's pretty much giving me a perfect situation with Wager+Psylock tellepassing steven's. Sadly, my last 2 prizes were Duskull and Gardy X. I also built that deck the night bfore learning how to play/play against it. He plays well, but in the end I win.
    Game 2: A basic repeat of Game 1, but he plays better. I still win


    -Me for winning
    -David for winning
    -Everyone for playing
    -Clay for judging
    -My packs for having good cards
    -Me finding McDonalds
    -Everyone that helped me with my list
    -Anything and anyone that I forgot
    -Me jumping from 64 to 50 in North America

    -Muk losing his deckbox with my empoleons
    -Kevin playing bannette
    -Louis playing bannette
    -Me losing all of my commons from the prize packs

    Overall it was a great day and I think that I learned a lot about how to play my deck better as well as how to be a better player in general.

    Congratulations man!!

    Oh, and BTW, Angle is a n00bert. He can just pull of the most amazing set-ups... And draw into the most amazing things... >_> He's a lucky n00bert!

    Yes, and Taylor M. is #5 in the whole world I do believe. She plays at our league too.

    Memphis has the best players!

    On a side note, it's sad All-Star Cards closed. Now we don't get 2 battle roads!

    Grats Sam!! Its a great time to get that 1st win under your belt with Nats coming up.
    You've set yourself up nicely for a run at top 25.

    Great battleroad field----57 total 4 in every division. Lots of NEW faces. Great support by all my memphis players.

    Looks like I will have a new store in Olive Branch for Fall Battle roads as well as a new league there.
    Setting up the league most likely this weekend. Hopefully lots of new players to teach this fun game.

    Oh and Mukman got his deck back....left it sitting on the front counter

    and don't get mad at Louis using Mars on you. I would have picked as quick as possible too if you would let me. Be in control of your game.

    Thanks, and yeah, I pray for that T25 every day. It's too bad that I can't go to any other BRs though... That's good that Muk found his deck; for both of us-lol.

    I'm not mad, I just wanted to post what happened to see if anyone else had ever been in that situation and what they did. Me and Louis are cool.

    Um..who ever you are...anyone in top 50 if they have a great day at Nats will shoot up into the top 25.

    Lots of great players with lots of points to be had in a tourney with a super high k value

  14. kristi

    kristi New Member

    I started playing in general after CG came out, but I just started playing competatively this year. I've been played GG since the last weekend of CCs. The deck has had quite a bit of tweaking though.

    I basically sucked.

    I lost my first match do to a major misplay. Then my second to Luis who had Banette. I won the next match, then lost my fourth to n00bert himself...

    and beat the next guy.

    So I went 2-3, lol

    I cleaned my deck up though, should work better now...

    GL at NATS!!

    Oh,,, sorry that you didn't do so well, but thanks for the luck- I'm gonna need as much as I can get.

    toxictaipan New Member

    It's okay. I never do well. you and me both know I got *SO* lucky at states!

    Stress on the *SO*

    I have really got to start using rogue more often at league. When you don't practice with the deck you are playing with, it's not really any help now is it?
  18. kristi

    kristi New Member

    I always play different decks at league because:

    1.) I never know for sure what deck I will play at a big tourney.

    2.) I really like to try new decks.

    3.) I THINK that I know how to play GG to its best, but I really don't.
  19. toxictaipan

    toxictaipan New Member

    LOL. G/G to its best?

    I wish I got better cards at Pre-Releases so I could try new decks at league.

    You can't work with half a deck. It's like, I totally need a job so I can more cards. I wonder if that new Game store will hire a 14 year old...

    Anyways, here's a final congratulations and good luck at Nats!
