    You are welcome. I guess this means that Canadians will again have a major influence on the decks used at US Nationals.

    Doesn't always happen, but it's possible.

    It happened in 2011. Just check the number of views on the two live threads from Canadian Nationals. Yanmega Prime. Say no more.

    Oh I'm very well aware, but there have been others years with minimal impact as well.

    It is more than possible. If our championship takes place a a week before the US then many US players will be influenced by the Canadian decks. The years when we did not have an impact were, obviously, the years when we were on the same or the following weekend. I was referring to one specific year where we definitely had a huge influence.

    haha no, just a misunderstanding. I meant there have also been years where the Canadian nationals were before the American nationals, and had little to no impact on their metagame.

    Who knows, maybe Entei will make another showing?

    2005 US July 2nd------CDN July 9th
    2006 US July 1st------CDN July 8th
    2007 CDN June 16th---US July 6th
    2008 US June 29th-----CDN July 5th
    2009 CDN June 20th---US June 27th
    2010 US June 26th-----CDN July 10th
    2011 CDN July 2nd-----US July 9th
    2012 Both July 1st

    I didn't realize last year was the first year they ran simultaneously.

    2007 had Golem/Exploud and MSN-BC in the finals. I pretty sure that didn't impact the states at all.

    2009 had Flygon vs Luxray Infernape SP. Both of which were popular before hand.

    And of course 2011 had ZPS vs Yanmega/Kingdra

    Thanks. I went to all of those (except 2008), but I never paid attention to US Nats until 2011.

    Time to bring some obscure cards into the limelight, IMO.

    Do it so we Americans can unload obscure cards to the vendors at Nationals for obscure prices. :biggrin:

    With the lack of VGC this year at Canadian Nationals, is there any plans to bring back a side tournament on the Sunday (even without prizes)
