    Yeah States!

    I pick up Billy F and Jeff S and we drive to New Holland for the tournament. I'm running a teched out Gardy/Gallade, Billy has Magmortar and Jeff has a Blissey varient.

    We arrive and start filling out decklists. I run into a slight problem which happens to be....I left my deck at home.

    Whoops!

    I look through my stuff and the only thing I have made is an RGon from like Battle Roads. I lol and fill out a decklist.

    R1 - Ian R

    I don't remember but he took a bunch of prizes and I almost made a comeback but that didn't work out.

    0-1

    R2 - Klara

    Sceptile/Venusaur, 1-1.

    R3 - Josh H

    Another Gardy...my start is HORRIBLE....but thankfully so is his. Eventually he gets a KO but I stall for a few turns and make a crazy comeback. Once I get setup its hard for me to lose.

    2-1

    R4 - Casey

    Yeah Gardy/Gallade again. We both get bad starts lol, he gets ahead and starts beating up on me, I let him take some prizes and setup a Flygon and start killing stuff...I win.

    3-1

    R5 - Kyle

    This one is really close...I got a junk start but made a great comeback and was ahead 1 prize to his 2. He unfortunately had a Scramble he needed and ko'd my Flygon before I could take my last prize.

    3-2

    I'm a bit annoyed I lost that one so closely after making a comeback, but hey I was running RGon did I really expect to do well?

    Apparently I make 8th so I'm playing Ben Sauk in playoffs.

    G1 - I get nothing, I mean nothing. I played one supporter and somehow I made a comeback. The game deciding moment was when I topdeck a Bebe's Search. I have a Chikorita in play, a Candy and a Lake Boundary in my hand. Active I have a Vibrava with an energy and one Vibrava on the bench. I just need to Bebe's for the Meganium, RC and get Flygon ex and Holon's Castform and Flygon d and I play the Lake Boundary and make an amazing comeback and win. BUT WAIT! I can't play Bebe's without putting a card back into my deck...so I fail. Got down to three prizes though.

    G2 - I start with my one Unown G lol. I played a Mentor this game, that was my only supporter for awhile until I got a Bebe's. I did take some prizes though.

    Soooo I get 8th with RGon lol. I'm still laughing.

    See you all next week at Delaware...with a real deck.

    It wasn't very popular. I played it, and at least two others played it too. I was so unsuccessful with it. I had some terrible starts in two of my battles against GG. lol, but when I battled Shaw in two little side battles in the middle of the tourney, I had amazing luck and was all set up by turn two. Why couldn't that have happened in the tourney :mad:.

    Yeah, I didn't see him there either :lol:.

    edit: shaw and i TESTED r-gon vs the format and we knew it (had the potential to possibly be) capable!
     
  12. Guess you didn't want to use your Super good cards or they would not be mint for ebay. Better luck next week. Hope you find your deck.

    GJ making T8 with it Shaw. My son Nick played it a RI States and goes undefeated all day with it and wins 1st place with 7-0 record. So it is definately not dead with the right techs, it is still a beast.
