Hola 6P readers! It’s been a while since my last article, right before San Jose. Since then, there haven’t been any big Standard tournaments, but we now have Memphis Regionals this weekend. Unsurprisingly, a record breaking attendance is expected this weekend, with well over 1,000 TCG players registered to play between all divisions. I’m very excited to compete in such a big tournament once again, as I always am, and get back on track after a couple disappointing results in London and San Jose.
Since London, I’ve been doing daily 6-9 hour days of coaching sessions and, therefore, 6-9 hours of practice in preparation for Memphis. I’ve narrowed down my deck choices to 3 decks, as the rest of the field just doesn’t feel as good or with as much potential as these 3 decks. They are Gardevoir-GX (the Max Potion version), Golisopod-GX/Zoroark-GX and Buzwole-GX/Lycanroc-GX.
With so many hours of practice, I feel confident that I could pilot any of the 3 decks without misplaying at all throughout the day. So how will I choose which deck to bring up against a field of 1,000+ players? A lot comes down to a personal preference of style of play. These 3 decks have very different play styles and I will be borrowing from Hearthstone terms in order to classify each one.

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!
