    Mach Slash

    Pokemon: 16
    4 Sandshrew MT
    4 Sandslash MT
    3 Machop DP
    2 Machoke DP
    3 Machamp DP

    Trainers: 31
    4 Warp Point DP

    4 Celio's Network CG
    4 PlusPower DP
    3 Castaway CG
    2 Holon Mentor DF

    1 Team Galactic's Wager MT
    2 Strength Charm DF
    4 Cessation Crystal CG
    1 Night Maintenance MT

    Energy: 13
    9 Fighting Energy
    4 Double Rainbow Energy CG

    Strategy: Get Sandslash out attacking T2 with either Spike Armor or Poison Spikes for 50 (with a DRE) and follow a KO with Machamp's Revenge.

    Round 1

    Patrick with Infernape/Magmortor

    He had horrible start with four Chimchar and an energy drought T1-T3 so I had my Sandslash K.O.ing Chimchars doing 50 a turn with Poison Spikes.

    1-0

    Lunch Break: Go, McDonalds!

    Round 2

    Seth with Flygon ex/Delcatty

    T2 K.O. with Sandslash on Trapinch for the win! Sorry, Seth.

    2-0

    Round 3

    Alexander with Raieggs/Dodrio

    Using Dodrio as a wall combined with my horrible start gave him the lead early on and I wasn't able to recover.

    2-1

    Round 4

    Tyler with Clefable/Starly/other random cards

    My Sandslash ran through his colorless deck with the weakness for a win.

    3-1

    I didn't make T2 by one place so I joined a Booster Draft after the competition.

    Booster Draft

    Deck (All MT)

    Pokemon- 14
    1 Happiny
    3 Chansey
    1 Blissey
    2 Aron
    2 Lairon
    2 Aggron
    2 Dunsparce
    1 Unknown E

    Trainers- 2
    1 Dusk Ball
    1 Quick Ball

    Energy- 22
    22 Basic Metal

    +2 ????

    Pretty good draw for a draft!

    Round 1

    Alexander

    I was seeking revenge from the BR loss to him and I got it. I had Blissey with an Unknown E powered up by T4 hitting for 60,70,.... and had an Aggron on my bench ready to go so I got the win.

    1-0

    Round 2

    Jay

    I had Blissey crushin his Pokes before he could do anything to me.

    2-0

    Round 3

    Anson (sp?)

    Early Sandslash, and followed by Raichu was my downfall.

    2-1

    Again missed the T2 playoff.
    Great tourney!

    Props

    Getting revenge on my loss in the draft
    Pulling Magmortor, Blissey, and 2 Aggron
    Passing the Coach test for judging
    Having Chicken Club for lunch

    Slops

    Missing T2 twice so that was sad
    No others!

    HAD A GREAT TIME!!!

    I decided the homework could wait.

    How many did you get wrong and what did Tim say about you being able to judge? Would you rather judge a prerelease or play in it?

    Nice report.:smile:

    2 so I got 13/15 with the minimum being 12/15 so I hoping to judge the prerelease because I would rather judge. I sent Tim an email like this, "... Did you recommend me for judging? Did ya? Did ya?..."

    Helen, I guess you are going to judge too since you got a perfect score. Tanner, tell her about what you did to her paper after you found out.

    Your deck functions with 13 energy? T2ing Seth, wow. I remember a lot of the round 3 games ended quickly. Alexander comes up with some of the oddest combinations.

    It looks like I won't be able to take all of you for judging. I'm currently decising on a game of skill to determine who gets to judge. I'm leaning towards either Candyland, because of its increasing popularity, or Rock-Paper-Scissors. j/k

    Me and Patrick or Helen should be the people judging. Keyword: ME!!! Plus, check out totoro's post!

    I already did.:thumb:

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    You should be on that list with extra judging rights for that good humor. "I expect to see bad decks brought in by Europeans." :lol:

    I'm not sure on this, but I'm guessing it's Michael Pramawat(that wasn't sarcasm).

    I saw totoro's post. As a general rule, I read the first post of a thread and several, if not all, of its replies before posting in it :wink:

    I find that quote in very poor taste :nonono:. The idea that Americans and Japanese are the only ones capable of making and/or playing good decks or capable of playing well is flat-out narrow-minded. :nonono:

    I thought it was absolutely hilarious! Besides, it's only a joke.
