Thanks!

Where do I get a deck list form could you get me in touch with the guy that printed them I heard he's super cool
What pokemon is on the front of the deck form?
I hope it's Exploud cause that's the best pokemon ever way better than Umbreon or Lugia

oh GOOD GOD MAN!! OKAY OKAY..

Ken (BLIZZARD) is the guy who made the really cool deck lists...and he did a beautiful job!
Wait till you all see the COOL TABLE NUMBERS he made too!

Thank you Ken very much!

footnote:
Exploud is just a big mouth shrimp...full of hot air! Lugia can eat him for lunch and still be hungry for more!
Get a grip man!
