March 12, 2011 Lenexa Kansas Ok, so this is my first of 2 reports I will be writing. So I get to the store at 10:00 and see it already crowded. I talk to people and learn that VileGar is the play for masters. That's what I'm playing, and I hoped that people in my division would not be playing that, because I can't beat the mirror. ☹ So we wait, and at 11:30, they post the pairings. We have 24 people, with 5 rounds and a top 4. I'm in seniors. Round 1 vs ??? w/ random I start and see he has a dialga. I'm like ☹. So I recover and start setting up. He gets scizor pime out with no energy, and I snipe around it. I really mess him up when I get the prime and LZ a lot of good cards from his hand. I 6-0 him. 1-0 Round 2 vs??? w/ BLG I get setting up quick, but he has a blaziken start and luring flames stuff. Luckily I have unown q on the gloom he brought up so I retreat it and KO his Blaziken. He gets stuff like like luxrays and garchomps, but I just run through him because he has 5 trainers in his hand he can't get rid of. 2-0 Round 3 vs Jared L. w/ LuxChomp He's playing luxchomp, and I know he teched in absol to beat vile, so I'm a little scared. I go first with an unown q start. He has garchomp C DCE. ☹ 2-1 We get a 1 hour lunch break, and after people finish in masters, we all go to Mr. Goodcents. While we were there, I learn that someone is playing mewperior, and learn that if I play it, I will definatly loose. I also have to win out to make top cut now.. Round 4 vs Isaiah w/……… Roserade!! Whew, dogged a bullet this round. He starts with roselia vs my gastly. I get collector and get tomb, oddish etc. I retreat my gastly and start to set up with my spiritomb. He soon gets a roserade hitting for massive damage against me, but I shadow room KO his roserade because it has a power. He doesn't have much else and I win 3-1 Ok, so if I want to make topcut, I have to win this game. Round 5 vs ??? w/……. Oh no…. dialgachomp Ahhhhh!!!!! I didn't even know someone was playing dialga!!! Ok, so I get a good setup. He has garchomp active and attaches to benched dialga. I start setting up a vileplume and a gengar SF. He then gets dialga and attaches to it. I do stuff and end. He then retreats garchomp and Lv. Ups his dialga to dialga Lv. X, then uses defen. After I draw he's Like "Oh NO!!! I misplayed." He forgot to use the many trainers in his hand. >.< I then retreat my spiritomb and get gengar and poltergeist for 150. He then sends up crobat and aaons the dialga line back. I have bebes and a gastly with an energy benched. I draw….. HAUNTER!! I evolve gastly with haunter and bebes to get the gengar prime and evlolve using BTS. I retreat and hurl into darkness his Dialga Lv. X. The rest of the game is down hill for him from here. Ok, so after this round, it lookes like this. We will have a top 4 5-0: Vance (ChenLock) 4-1: Jared (LuxChomp w/ absol) Me (Vilegar) Randy (gyarados) William (LuxChomp ERL) One 4-1 won't make it in the top cut. They post the thingy and it lookes like 1st Vance K. 5-0 2nd Jared L. 4-1 3rd William 4-1 4th Me 4-1 Wooo!! I made it! We turn in our decks and I play BW against vance. We get our decks back and start the top cut. Top 4 vs Vance K. w/ ChenLock Game 1 I start unown q and he donks me. Ahhh!! Not again! 0-1 ☹ Game 2 I get a gastly. He gets rid of copycat with initiative. I draw spiritomb and play BTS to evolve to haunter. I retreat to spiritomb and darkness grace to gengar. He ko's my spiritomb. I draw.. Lv. Up gengar, and polturgiest. I do this for 4 turns and take 4 prizes because he has a ton of supporters in his hand and can't get judge. By the time he KO's gengar, I already have enough stuff to win. 1-1 I think, oh gosh.. we don't have much time left, and he has a big advantage in sudden death. Game 3 I start spiritomb with a collector and uxie in hand. He uses initiative of off impersonate. He gets double tails and is like ☹ I then use collector and uxie, and after d-grace have a gengar and vileplume out. He asks the judge if he can flip the table, but the judge says he can't. He the KO's tomb. I get gengar and take a lot of prizes and win. He's disappointed that he looses to me because of initiative flips. Well, it happens. ☹ Anyway, jared wins his games and I have to play him. This is just like states last year…. *flashback moment* Top 2 vs Jared L. w/ Luxchomp w/ Absol Game 1 I have uxie and oddish and draw all energy. GG 0-1 Sigh… Game 2 I get mega setup. I have vileplume and a powered up gengar turn 2-3. He has a lot of pokemon, but has a hand of 10 traniers. He scoops. 1-1 The judge says the 30 minute mark hasn't passed yet, so we take our time shuffling. Game 3 I get stuff turn 3-4. He gets luxray bright look on vile, then I warp energy it back and KO luxray. He tries to get rid of psychic on gengar with tailcode, but I have one on my hand and attach and KO ambipom. He gets out absol and KO's gengar, and I flip heads on FS. He has nothing else and I sweep. GG 2-1 So I win Kansas states going 6-1. I get a booster box, medal (coming in mail), $300 travel rewards at nats, a mat, and a round 1 bye at nationals. (I think) Props Jack for top 4'ing Pat with magnezone Everyone who made this possibly Mr. Goodcents Slops None! I will write one for MO states, which is next week. If you want my list PM me. Thanks for reading!
