Hello again readers, I’m back with some Expanded content today in preparation for the Daytona Regional Championships. I’ve been enjoying Expanded quite a bit recently, and I believe that it this fact is easily attributed to the changes brought by the banning of Lusamine and Delinquent. I’m going to be covering my top two picks for this weekend as well as what I believe the meta will be.
I’m coming off of my not-so-recent success in Greensboro with Zoroark/Garbodor, and I believe it is one of the strongest decks the game has seen in recent history. Between drawing 20+ cards a turn, hitting 210 damage every turn, and having massive disruptive capabilities, Zoroark/Garbodor offers literally everything a player could ask for. One of the reasons I enjoy playing ZoroGarb is because even though the deck takes 50/50s against a lot of decks, there is plenty of room to outplay many opponents.
Pikarom is the second deck I’m considering because of how fast and strong the deck is. We saw it take two of the Top 8 slots in Greensboro, and I think that is a perfect example of how well the deck can do. I believe that the deck has gained a rather unorthodox way to sneak an extra Prize in.
