Welcome back, everyone. For me at least, the past few weeks have been hectic and tiring. Due to the way Chicago’s planned out their Cups, a majority of them were before Memphis, and the final few were over the New Years weekend, which Christopher and I wrote about here. I was glad that there were some Expanded Cups, but I wish they were closer to Dallas, like this weekend or the previous, so that there would be a better representation of the finalized meta. For example, there was only one person playing Seismitoad-EX/Zoroark-GX at the final Cup. Had the meta advanced to where it is now, Trevenant and Wailord would falter.
Despite the shift in hyped decks, which has progressed itself now to Seismitoad-EX/Zoroark-GX and Golisopod-GX/Zoroark-GX, there’s been a continued acknowledgment of Night March. The only decks thought to have a chance at winning Dallas are those that have a favorable Night March matchup, against a good player. It’s one thing to outplay inexperienced Night March players, but that overconfidence results in a Top 8 riddled with Night March, as seen in San Jose. Today, I’ll be comparing the dominant San Jose list to what I’m testing now, and how the differences alter the deck.

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!
