Hello everyone! Welcome back to SixPrizes, and another one of my articles. Lost Thunder has been released and testing for Brazil has begun, the Standard format has improved a lot! While Expanded is definitely still my preferred format, albeit with some bias, I no longer feel like the Standard format is borderline unplayable. The decks interact better with each other, the decks feel more fun to play overall, and the new set has allowed for a bit more of an intricate format. All of my testing has led me to continue working on Psychic Malamar and Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX, along with putting some time into the new powerhouse in Blacephalon-GX/Naganadel.
While this news is not particularly exciting, the new format as a whole does offer more variety than in recent history. I definitely plan to play as much as possible before Brazil rolls around, with the goal of surpassing my recent eight hour days in mind. With that being said, today I will be talking about my top three picks at the current moment. They aren’t in any particular order, and the meta will play apart in deciding what the best deck choice is. Anyways, without further ado, lets kick things off with some Lost Thunder talk.
