Hello SixPrizes readers! I am back with another article, where I cover both formats yet again! The new set has caused for a decent amount of changes to be made, both to lists and the overall metagame.
Addtionally, a lot if important tournaments are coming up! In just a few days we have Roanoke Regionals, and then Madison Regionals is just one week later! While I am normally not thrilled to have tournaments back to back like this, I am quite excited to play with the new cards, and the events being different formats will make it a bit more fun too.
In Expanded, I am a big fan of Drampa-GX/Garbodor still, but that likely isn’t a surprise to any of you anymore. Additionally, I have been playing a bit with Lucario-GX, and I really admire the consistency of the deck.
Transitioning into Standard after Roanoke shouldn’t be too hard, as I have been playing a lot of Buzzwole-GX in an attempt to find my favorite list. I have truly tried a ton of different variants, but I will talk more about that later. Malamar is another deck I have been playing with to some success, and while I have been winning, the deck feels a bit weird to play. Anyways, let’s kick off the article with a look at my updated Drampa list!
