Hello everyone! I am sad to report that I was unable to continue my winning streak in Dallas, tying my win-and-in after a solid 50 minutes vs. ZoroGarb. I knew I would lose eventually, and I am very proud of what I accomplished, so I am certainly not crushed by this by any means. I look forward to the Oceania International Championships and the new set, Team Up! Two pretty exciting events on the horizon, but I am glad to have a break before all of this action hits me. I have been playing an unbelievable amount of Pokémon recently, and it is super nice to have this break.
That being said, I will definitely end up fully prepared for the International Championships in Melbourne! Additionally, I have been monitoring Team Up, and I am excited to brew with the new cards. I still have some League Cups with the current Standard format, SUM–LOT, but my mind is all over Team Up at this point. This article offers a look at my favorite cards to come out of the new set, but, before that, I will draw your attention to the menace of the Expanded format: Seismitoad-EX/Zoroark-GX.
