Hey all, I’m back with an article I’m really excited to share with you all. The current Standard format is pretty stale and I’m ready for some major changes. Luckily for us, the new Guardians Rising set is going to bring a ton of innovation into the format. A handful of cards in the set like Tapu Lele-GX and Fieldblower will have immediate impact on how we build decks, while others like Tapu Koko-GX will definitely see play at some point in their competitive lifetime.
For today, I think it’s more interesting to go over some of the new decks from Guardians Rising than to continue to rehash our current Standard format. Every major deck in the PRC-SUM format has been covered extensively, and you can see that content in the Underground archives. I will, however, end this article with a few words on the current format and my #1 choice for Virginia, so stay tuned for that.
Without further ado, here are some of the new decks I’m excited to try out.

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
