    So, some of you may know, i quit this game two years ago. I'm on spring break from college and i see that VA states are going on during the weekend. Hit up my friends Pram, Luke, Ben, and LJ to make sure i have a deck for it and then get a ride.... at 4:30 in the morning... oh well.

    So i get there, see some old faces, get told i'm playing steelix that Mike apparently won with at MD. I'm like... ok cuz i have no idea what half these cards do, and set phasers to faceroll.

    Round 1: Machamp/Elephant thing... donphan that's it.

    Uh... i find out that steelix is pretty hefty. so.. win?

    1-0

    Round 2: Luxchomp w/ Donphan?

    She gets like a T2 snipe off of my first onix and i have to scramble to get back into the game. Takes like 7 turns to set up a steelix but for some reason she got rid of all of her energy getting like 3 prizes so i get to just poke at her with an uxie till my steelix is up, and then she can't take it down.

    2-0

    Lunch Break.

    We go to this hotel restaurant deal in the next room. Service was awful, my fries were cold, i was upset. and on top of that WVU lost.

    :(

    Round 3: Nate Blevins Dialgachomp

    So... dude gets 2 heads on Remove Lost twice in a row and then gets prizes faster than i can set up steelix number 2.

    2-1

    Round 4: Gyarados

    Steelix one-shots gyarados. and this was like the one game i flipped heads... lol

    3-1

    Round 5: Machamp

    Steelix one-shots the SF Machamp and can tank the other one

    4-1

    Round 6: Luke//Mirror Match

    So i start with dialga which ends up being the only reason why i win. Get rid of his first steelix with my dialga and then we trade prizes, but that one less steelix is the game. That and combined we were like 4/12 on coin flips. Feel bad though cuz that's like a -30 in rating for him.

    5-1

    Round 7: Ryan Simmons/Luxchomp

    I start god with like 3 pokedrawer an onix and a double colorless. So he can't get rid of steelix.

    6-1

    Sitting 3rd seed going in, feelin pretty good about myself.

    Top 16 King of magikarps?

    So i open up my deck box and i see a fire energy with the words "Dialga G Proxy" on it. Apparently the Dialga G i was using had a bend on the corner that was visible. Might be why i started with it 2 times that i didn't want to... -.- oh well. Fire energy it is.

    Gyarados

    Round 1

    We both get set up but steelix has the one shot, gyarados doesn't.

    1-0

    Round 2

    I start well and he can't get a gyarados up. or get a prize

    2-0

    Top 8 Ryan Simmons

    LuxChomp

    Round 1

    Same guy i played round 7, He makes the biggest misplay not counting my metal energy and leaving my steelix with 10hp and i sweep with it.

    1-0

    Round 2

    I get a decent start and sweep. SP can't take out steelix in a timely manner.

    2-0

    Top 4 LJ

    Luxchomp w/ Absol tech

    Round 1

    Ambipom is the most annoying thing ever. after top decking ALOT of energy, i get over it and sweep him.

    1-0

    Round 2

    His prizes are disgusting and i keep the annoying things off the board via Reversal.

    2-0

    Top 2 Curran Hill

    So Machamp/Vileplume... fun. lol he was 10-0 coming in but i don't let that discourage me...

    Round 1

    I have 2 prized steelix... so that hurt alot. anyway i dig in, get one steelix out of 4 prizes, if i had gotten the 3rd i feel like i could've snaked out round 1, but that's neither here nor there.

    0-1

    Round 2

    I don't have anything after steelix number one is gone. sitting pretty decent if i could get a collecter, or really... anything. but such is life lol. Top card after he seeker ends it... collector.

    0-2

    So i finish like 9-2 and second place after not playing for 2 years...

    Fire Energy
    Steelix
    Half box of cards i don't use
    Hilarious Pokemon B/w names

    So I heard.

    If I told you 4 years ago, that you'd be playing Life Herb in a competetive deck, who would believe me?:lol:

    pretty sure life herb wasn't even OUT 4 years ago. and i'd have probably slapped you in the face.

    It was great having your sense of humor in the format again man :)

    I hadn't seen you since the 2009 regionals when you ran my crazy Shaymin LvX rush idea and ROCKED it out :)

    You really impressed me with your poise in Top Cut. Even when you were down in prizes, you just stayed the course, got up your steexlix and pounded em down. Textbook ice-water-for-blood performance man.

    Great job.

    Neither do the regular players... ahaha.

    Good job at putting us to shame after the long break.
    Curious, did LJ ever use Doom News against you on Absol G? That could have won him the game!
