Hello Underground readers! VA Regionals took place last weekend, and Lapras-GX finally took home a win in what seems to be a pretty stale format at this point in time. PRC–SUM did shake things up quite a bit, but mostly due to the presence of the new Decidueye/Vileplume archetype. This deck definitely takes a high amount of skill to pilot well; however, the presence of Vileplume severely limits many of today’s otherwise-viable decks.
This upcoming weekend, we have Toronto Regionals to look forward to. It’s the first and only Regional in Canada, and the last Expanded tournament of the season. Recently, there was an announcement that the Expanded format is being monitored by TPCi and the possibiliy of cards getting banned to achieve a healthy metagame is real. I myself am no expert on Expanded, so I’m mainly going to focus on looking ahead towards Seattle Regionals, but will first look at Toronto.

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!
