Hello again readers, I’m here with 6P’s last word before EUIC in Berlin this weekend. I have a few ideas for the event, but none of them are too spicy. The SUM–TEU Standard format seems to be pretty well solved, and I don’t believe that we’ll see anything too weird pop up. At this point, the most important thing going into EUIC is knowing what the meta is going to look like. There’s a plethora of playable decks right now, but they almost all rely on a specific meta to do extremely well.
- Zapdos (Lycanroc-GX, Ultra Beasts, Jolteon-GX)
- Celebi & Venusaur
- Zoroark Control
- Ultra Malamar
- Beast Box
Of these decks, Venusaur, Zoroark Control, Stall, and Beast Box are the decks that rely extensively on the meta to place well. I can confidently say that I do not see myself playing Venusaur, Zoroark Control, or Malamar.
