Hello SixPrizes readers! I am back from Connecticut Regionals, where I disappointingly fell just short of making day two. Heading into the event, I was pretty convinced I would play a stage two deck. I had Gardevoir-GX and Metagross-GX built, and was going to decide which one to play once I got a better feel for the metagame. If I expected a decent amount of Fire, I would play Gardevoir-GX. If not, I would stick to the deck I had been farming cups with, Metagross-GX. Metagross pretty much dominated everything that was not Fire, which ended up getting quite a bit of hype leading up to the event.
The whole day before I was second guessing Metagross, but still had Gardevoir as a fallback. The night before, Azul tells me he is playing Volcanion-EX/Volcanion and is hyping it up to me. I insist that Gardevoir-GX is very favored against the Fire decks, so we play and he ends up beating me. Very late in the night, at about four AM, Azul had convinced all of us to play Volcanion.

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!
