    Well I'm either going to New Hampshire or Maine hopefully, although since it would be my mom driving me (instead of my dad or sister, yeah I need to get my license already) I think that I'll probably end up going to NH as it's closer. :p

    Count me in for New Hampshire. This will be my first Pokemon TCG tournament.

    I will definitely be there with my +2 in the car. All for the masters division. I built a rogue deck I feel will be pretty effective, but no hints. I don't want to break the meta game before I get there :)

    For the people going, want to meet up somewhere at the event?

    Well, the eve before. I'm going to be wearing jeans and yellow plaid tomorrow, I'm hoping to secure one more level ball before starting if I can, look for me. I have plenty to trade with, it shouldn't be to hard to find something :)

    I'll trade one before the event. I'm trying to complete my deck also. Looking for about 3 cards.

    Reporting from the State Championships, I managed to get 12th place, which is pretty good for my first Championship. Bunch of Yveltal/Darkrai decks and Plasma/Plasma Fairy decks running rampant with a few Virgen decks here and there all teching a Raichu to take down the Yveltals. I expect these decks to run rampant until Flashfire comes out in the US.

    Which division were you in?

    We were both in masters. I took 16th, good enough to prize nine packs, so I am also very very satisfied with my first premier event. After Swiss rounds, I had an identical win percentage with Dylan who eventually went on to win, that also was encouraging. I'm certain that a more skilled player could have taken a top cut position with my rogue deck. I'll write more about it later. :D

    did you run the klinklang agieslash durant deck?

    Well, I ran A klinklang/aegislash deck, but there was no durant involved. I focused pretty heavily on the lock with only a few techs against plasma/yveltal. I just wish I hadn't run three tool scrappers, I didn't see garbodor all day. Haha.

    Do you guys remember how many Masters showed up at the event. I just want to get an idea about how big it was. :p

    38 masters, with 8 DNFing.

    I should also clarify, I ran keldeo EX/Klingklang/aegislash. Klinklang was awesome at moments and definitely won me at least one game, but the lock was provided by keldeo and aegislash.

    Oops. My bad about the durant. I heard many people talking about your deck throughout the tournament.

    That's pretty humbling, it's cool to hear. I was one win from top cut, but time got called before I could seal the deal on my last matchup. I would love to make mass states this Saturday but I don't think it will be plausible.

    I think the lock is so effective, that even though you kinda flop around a bit early on and you usually sacrifice prizes, once it's established, it is pretty much absolute in most of the matchups I faced.

    I hope to do an article on it, I just fell in love with the concept when I saw the synergy.
