Hola 6P readers! I’m back again with another article and today I’ll be discussing updated lists for JoseZard and Mew Box. We saw the results from the Melbourne SPE and Sheffield Regionals recently which gave us more info on how decks should look moving forward. Usually, after a major event, decks tend to get tweaked. That is why you see uniqueness in some of the top lists. For example, Robin’s Top 8 AbilityZard from Sheffield played 4 Fire Crystal. Funnily enough, my Top 32 Worlds list also played 4 Fire Crystal, which I went over in my last article. Pablo discussed Robin’s list in-depth in his latest article, so feel free to check it out there. Pablo also goes over his own take on Mew Box with a Jirachi TEU engine, so be sure to check that out as well.
With that being said, let’s dive into the new JoseZard and what I used recently at a 50-man League Cup, which I unfortunately bubbled 9th with a 4-1-1 record. I started 4-0 then played down to a 3-0-1 the following round and lost to their Malamar, which is a tough matchup. I then took the ID in Round 6, only to miss top cut. I was shocked, but it is what it is, and the list ran well.
Even though I missed the cut, and I’d play the same 60 moving forward. My buddy Isaac Milaski played a 59-card copy of the list (the difference: 4th Cherish Ball over Tapu Fini UNM) last weekend and won a League Cup with it, so shout-out to him.
