    Sooo after spending Saturday chilling with some friends, I drove to Omar's house and tested some decks and went to bed. The next morning, we told everyone we weren't coming. Oops. I was writing my list when I remembered how horrible Windstorm is, so I dropped one for something better (anything). Everyone said "lawlz u r l0ze 2 g4ll4d3" but I was like whatever and played it anyway.

    I was playing Magmortar/Typhlosion/Delcatty aka Fire TRUK btw.

    Round 1 vs. Colton M (Honchkrow - Dark Wing Duck sounds terribad. Sry :frown:)
    I started Magmar, and he Absol. He went first and discarded my trainers. Nice. I attach and do 20. I draw a Steven for 4 next turn and get mostly energy, but 1 Celio, which he misses with Baleful Wind. I get Magmortar out first to stay alive, then follow it with a Delcatty. He takes the bait and kills my Cyndaquils with Feint Attack, so Magmortar stays healthy. He isn't hurting my hand much now that Absol is gone, so I can get Typhlosions up and keep swarms of stuff coming. I win handily. GG

    Round 2 vs. Cari (Magmortar/Delcatty)
    She didn't have Typhlosion, which basically made all the difference. I was discarding her DRE and Scramble and setting up KOs while accelerating my own Magmortars, while she had to rely solely on manual attachments. I also got to snipe a Delcatty ex for free prizes. I won by a good margin but it was a good game nonetheless. GG

    Round 3 vs. Omar (Banette/Blissey)
    He gets a horrid 5-mulligan start and I draw everything, and I'm 2nd. I candy into Delcatty to dodge the Wager, win the Wager, and then basically draw into everything again. Not really a GG but ily :frown:

    Round 4 vs. Nice japanese lady (Mario)
    Ughh Mario is legit when it sets up =( I got a pretty horrid draw and kinda just sat around and got basics for a long time while trying to power things up. I got a Delcatty and bought a few turns while I sacked stuff. She was flipping some crazy heads with that Machamp attack so by the time I did get Magmortar LV.X out it could only get one risk-free attack. I got him out of there and went aggro Typhlosion for the KO. Unfortunately, the Lucario LV.X drop was next and she killed my active, and I had to warp to attack. We traded prizes until it was 1-1, and I had to either go for the win with Burn + 100, or send up Typhlosion and risk running out of Energy. I went with Typhlosion and she couldn't confuse me, so I sent up a Magmortar and did 80 FTW to a Machamp. GG

    Round 5 vs. Tomas L (Aggro Magmortar)
    He mulliganed... 6 times? Maybe more. Still, he had a Wager to screw up my nice hand. I sacked basics till I got Magmortar LV.X up and got the OHKO with Flame Blast. He had trouble powering up another one and I took control of things from there.

    Top 4 vs. William B (Xatu/Golduck)
    Cool deck, the idea was to confuse yourself and then move the condition onto the defending.

    Game 1: I get a dominating fast start and set up two Typhlosions before I really get anything else. Being weak to water was lame, but I could do Evaporating Heat and discard his energy a lot, so that helped to slow him down. I used Mag LV.X to knock off another Golduck that was waiting on the bench, halting my weakness problem for a spell. Mag had already taken damage, so he sent up a Xatu to finish it off, right after laying down Skarmory ex. I see a shiny metallic opportunity there and use Night Maintenance on the KOd Magmortar line, and use Typhlosion aggro again. I set up 3 Typh over the course of the game and rotate them, keeping them alive and discarding energy, taking prizes at the same time. I finish up with a Flame Bluster on Skarmory for my last two prizes. GG

    Game 2: He opens and he has the Skarmory down on the bench already, which made me very, very happy. I started with Magmar against his Psyduck (ugh) and he goes 2nd and does Migrane for 30 and confuses me. I draw, use a LOAD of trainers to get evolutions, and then attach to my bench Magmar and pass. He uses the one wager in the deck UGHH and kills my hand, and I lose the wager. So it's looking kinda bad until I draw a Steven, then a Delcatty, then more cards. He had a more shaky set-up this time than before, and I pretty much exclusively used Typhlosion until I had LV.X kill Skarmory again for the game. GGs

    Finals vs. Jim F (Gallade/Gardevoir)
    Game 1: I start Magmar and draw into Cynaquils, and I have Cyndaquils, with the Magmortar stuff in hand. He starts Stantler. I got T2 Magmortar and left his Stantler with 40 on it. I leveled up T3 and burned it, then said pass. He used Lead a bunch to get supporters and got a Candy Gallade going. I made him flip over the 4 prizes to KO my level X, and responded with a Typhlosion to discard his DRE. I got in the game after drawing into Delcatty cards and I take him down to the wire by setting up his stuff for 2HKOs with Typhlosion and keeping his energy under my control. I sniped his benched Gardy LV.X and by then he had flipped all his prizes, so he was left attacking with Gardevoir to no avail. It came down to him drawing a scramble to have any shot, but he missed it by one card, though I think I still probably would have won. GG

    Game 2: I started Skitty vs his Stantler and get heads on Tail Whip. He benches another Stantler, retreats, and uses Lead. I get Delcatty T2 and draw a Magmar to start attaching to. By T4 I have LV.X out because I dumped all my resources into getting it, and I let Delcatty do the rest of the draw work for me. He does the 4 Prize flip quickly and I get Magmortar back in the deck just as fast with NM. Pretty soon it's up and running again and I get his Gallade with the Flame Bluster + Torrid Wave gimmick and it goes downhill for him from there. I win on time, but we played it out and I came out on top. Good, tough games Jim!

    Woohoooo. I got a Chingling, also. (Omar I'll give you that binder)

    -Typhlosion HE'S MY MAIN ATTACKER
    -Mike/Greg/Richard letting me borrow cards
    -Cool opponents
    -I would thank Mom for driving but I had to drive home so :X

    -Blastoise d does not make Magmortar any better of a matchup for Venusaur (COUGH JUSTIN)
    -Omar doing bad/donked
    -Miami Mike failing to top cut in either of his ONLY events this season (lulz)

    Tell a guy on the team who coined the term TRUK what is or isn't a TRUK deck. Nice job to make yourself look silly.

    Are you coming to Jacksonville? I don't think you are (Melbourne is on the same day I hear), but I hope you do. You can see zach, chichi, alex and I.
