No joke, I got really lucky to play against almost all Yveltal, and I didn’t drop a game until cut.

Only three seniors, and my record was better than the other two, those being the round two and three opponents. +50.

2/17/17: LC. The organizer tells me I’m the only senior before it starts, so I’m already getting points. Standard, playing turbo dark. Each round I played was a Master.
R1: Vespi/Zoroark. W.
R2: Water stuff: W.
R3: Lurantis/Eeveelutions: W.
Finished 1st even with the masters, what a savage.

Expanded, playing Mega Gardy, two cards off from the Collinsville list.

4/2/17: League Cup.
Standard, playing Mega Gardy.
R1: Mega Rayquaza: WLL.
R2: Mega Tyranitar/Decidueye: LWW.

Gardy feels inconsistent in standard. +0 CP.

4/8/17 League Cup:
Standard, playing Mega Ray/Volcanion.
R1: Decidueye/Vileplume: LL.
R2: Mirror: LL.
R3: Dark stuff: WW.

Ray also feels inconsistent in standard. +0 CP.

4/15/17 League Cup:
Standard, playing Turbo Dark.
R1: Lycanroc Jank: WW.
R2: Yveltal/Garb: WW.
R3: A junior playing Quad Lapras who didn’t really know what she was doing: WT.

Playing a consistent deck feels good. +35 CP.

310/500, over 60% of the way there.

So I haven’t kept track of pretty much anything since then, so I’ll skip ahead from league cups.

5/6: VA Regionals.
Standard, playing DeciPlume.
R1: Quad Lapras: WLL.
R2: Volcanion: LWT.
R3: Mega Ray: LL.
R4: Yveltal/Zoroark: Somehow T.

That was disappointing. +0 CP.

I don’t remember league cups from this quarter, I just know I won two.

6/30: NAIC!
Standard, playing Mega Gardy (despair ray).
R1: New player: LWW, because I prized three megas game one.
R2: Mega Ray: WW. Sudowoodo is good against ray.
R3: Darkrai/Garbodor: WLL.
R4: Metagross: LWT.
R5: Zoroark/Drampa: WW.
R6: Espeon/Garb: WW.
R7: Mega Ray: LL. Sudowoodo is good against gardevoir.

R11: Umbreon/Zoroark: WLL.
R12: Metagross: WLL.
R13: Decidueye/Ninetales: WW.
R14: Greninja: WW.

Top 16, not bad when I was just shooting for day two.
+150 CP, up to 610/400.

8/18: Worlds Day One!
Standard, playing Mega Ray/Magearna.
R1: Ninetales (no sudowoodo): LL.
R2: Volcanion: WLW.
R3: Mega Ray (with sudowoodo): I got lucky. WW.
R4: Gardevoir/Slyveon: WLW.
3-1, I advance to day two.

8/20: Day Two.
Unfortunately, I hit too much sudowoodo to do well.
R1: Volcanion: WLW.
R2: Ninetales (with sudowoodo): LL.
R3: Decidueye/Ninetales: WLL.
R4: Gardevoir/Octillery/Gallade: WW.
R5: Gardevoir/Octillery/Gallade (with sudowoodo): WW.
R6: Volcanion (with sudowoodo): LWL.
R7: Turbo Dark (with sudowoodo): LL.

Overall, this season was pretty great. I met a lot of nice people, and had a great time at Worlds. Nashville is only about four hours from me, so I’ll definitely be shooting for an invite for next season.
