Hello 6P! July has come and the 2019–2020 season is now in full swing. We have League Cups and Challenges already happening all over the world, and I myself played in a Cup this past weekend.
I didn’t do too hot, as I whiffed Top 8 playing Green’s ReshiZard. I chose to play this deck over my trusted Jirachi version, mostly because I knew Zoroark and ZapBeasts would have a big presence. I teched 2 Power Plants into my list along with healing cards such as Mixed Herbs to dominate both of these matchups. I didn’t mind a weaker mirror match as no one plays ReshiZard in Mexico other than myself usually. For a big tournament, my preferred version would still be Jirachi-based ReshiZard, but League Cups have more concentrated metagames, so making such changes is reasonable. I ended up losing to ZapBeasts, ironically, which left me out of Top Cut, but to be fair, my opponent drew Beast Energy + Choice Band off of a Lillie for 2… I still think it was the right call, and I’ll probably be playing the same deck next week at a Challenge.
