Hello SixPrizes readers! I am back with another article on the standard format, and have quite an update on the state of the format from my last article. Philadelphia has come and gone, and the format is really starting to shape up and become understood. Philadelphia was the first Regional Championships of the year, so I wanted to play something consistent and I tend to prefer to decks that have close matchups against everything, as opposed to really polarizing matchups. This left me looking no further than trusty Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX, which I did end up playing. However, the list went through quite the set of changes before the tournament, so at least it was a bit of a spicier deck choice.
I had a lot of fun at the first major event of the year, and picked up a whopping eighty points with my ninth place bubble. While I am pretty disappointed with the result, I am glad that I got a decent start on earning a stipend to the EUIC. With that being said, I will be going over Zororoc today, along with Buzzwole/Garbodor, Zoroark-GX/Golsiopod-GX, and Empoleon. Yes, that is correct, Empoleon. Without further ado, lets kick things off with a look at the Zoroark deck I played in Philadelphia.
