Happy New Year! Hopefully you’re off to a great start in 2018, and all the best with your Pokémon endeavors this year. Hopefully we can help you with that along the way.
We’re going to start of the year with something new today here on 6P. Xander and Christopher both attended the same set of (Expanded!) League Cups in the greater Chicago area this weekend, and were scheduled to write back-to-back this week. Since each planned to write about said League Cups, we thought it’d be an interesting experiment to try co-writing this larger article covering our experiences at these Cups. Especially after the first day went well—with some unconventional deck choices—this seemed like a pretty cool idea to us.
So, as you may have gathered from the byline when you clicked your way here, this piece is co-written by the two of us. We’re going to go over each of the 4 decks we played this weekend and our experiences playing them. We played 4 very unique, fairly under-the-radar, lists this weekend, so hopefully there’s something here you can take towards Dallas. Unfortunately, for the Standard-inclined, this probably won’t be of as much help, but as has been discussed, Standard isn’t exactly revolutionary at the moment.
Clarity-wise, hopefully the headings and structure make it fairly clear who’s saying what at a given point in the article. This is a first for us, and we hope you find it interesting—in any event, though, we’d love to get your feedback on this as an idea.

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!
