Well since BR's is over and decks will change a little for cities. I decided to report on the decks my family and I ran and the decks that we have seen. Most of these will be no brainier to the community that we ran into those decks. First off my wife, Nancy, ran Duskqueen/Mightenya EX the whole BR season. Besides having a thing for the color purple, I thought this fit her play style allot. Out of the 5 BR's we played: she made cut once, 5th once and a positive record the rest. Even though it is a setup deck and a bit slow to start, we found out it has major comeback power, great disruption and great for end game finishing (if you don't get stalled out). Second, Heather ran Flex for the tourneys she could show up at. (She has a job.) I don't think either of us thinks it’s that great anymore. Relying on the castform draw to get going just doesn't work with the quickness of many decks floating around. I guess on to something else for cities, she was a Gatr player at one time :thumb:. Third, Dale ran an Empoleon variant that we tweaked for 2-3 BR's before we gave up on it. Then we went with S-cario (Lucario/Shiftry EX/Dodrio). Which he did great with and loves the deck. His records went into the positive with making top cut one time and 3rd the other. If it wasn't for some bad luck (diced one game and Donk'd the other) his record would be even better with that deck. As for me, I ran Garphlosion (coined!) Garchomp/Typhlosion/delcatty. I love the deck, fits my style and played it all BR's except last. Always had a positive record with it (5th twice). Has a good (not great) match up across the board, IMO except against 130 hp beast. For my last BR I played S-cario because of the dual lost received from Elevire-b the day before. This tourney I pulled what I call a "Kettler". As in I show up and had to borrow allot of cards to make the deck (thanks Diana and Clay). I think I have only seen one tourney I the past few seasons that Ketter, J. didn't end up borrowing some card/cards. That was a great tourney, made top cut, and would have been able to do better if not for 3 of the 4 decks that made top were anti-power decks. As for the decks that we saw that I think are to be reckoned with: Hurricane Electevire/Blissey The pure power of these decks in draw, OHKO (even on 130 HP) consistently and speed is crazy. I know S-cario is a hard counter to Electvire/Blissey but dont know how it fares to Gatr. Electvire/Blissey should be a hard counter to Gatr. That is it for now, onto a new set and Cities!
