Hello 6P! Or should I say “Pura Vida 6P!”? I’m fresh off a couple of SPE weekends in Mexico City and Costa Rica—the final two weekends of the SUM–LOT format. I had a ton of fun in both events. I decided to give Gardevoir-GX one last run. I’ve always gravitated towards that card due to how powerful it is and the success it has brought me so far. My list remained unchanged between events, though I was definitely tempted to make changes as I felt the Solgaleo-GX line included was not very useful. It proved key in a couple of games, but it was nothing spectacular overall.
Nevertheless, I finished 9th and 7th at the events, respectively, netting me +180 CP between both weekends, which hopefully secures me a stipend for Berlin. I’m just shy of the Travel Award; it feels like I’ve been on a downswing lately but I’m trying to not let it affect my mentality. I’m ready to try really hard to secure a Travel Award for the NAIC, Day 2 of Worlds, and, if the system works the same as before, the first IC of next season.
Finally, it’s time for me to focus on Team Up, and even though I won’t be going, I’m looking forward to enjoying the Oceania International Championships stream from home to take note of the best decks from the tournament! You can expect coverage on my YouTube channel immediately following the tournament.
We are mere hours away from the OIC, so I’m going to delve into what I think will do well and what has shown the most promise in my testing.
