Not gonna do full reports for these. If I do, it’s going to be on a different thread.

Worlds 2015:
Not much about this. I made a poor deck choice and ended up dropping.
Playing Flareon:
R1-Primal Groudon: LWT (0-0-1)
R2-Hippowdon: WLT (0-0-2)
R3-Hippowdon: LT (0-1-2)
Drop.

Boston Open: 10th
I played Night March with 1 Empoleon.
R1-Metal Ray: WW (1-0-0)
R2-Metal Ray: WW (2-0-0)
R3-Night March: WLL (2-1-0)
R4-Metal: WW (3-1-0)
R5-Landobats: WLW (4-1-0)
R6-Dragon Ray: WLW (5-1-0)
R7-Night March: T-ID (5-1-1)
There were two pods, so they had a top 16.
I was 4th seed in my pod and 6th seed overall.
Top 16-M Manectric/Articuno: LWL
I had game in hand, but my opponent top decked a Shaymin-EX, which he played for four, netting himself the manectric spirit link, M Manectric, Mega Turbo, and Lysandre that he needed to win. Oh well, can’t win em all.

The Landybats you played against I played against round four and lost. I was playing Primal Kyogre. Don’t ask. What was you’re round three worlds opponent playing?

Edited to show my round 3 opponent.

Updated with Ft. Wayne Regionals! Here’s my report!

Ft. Wayne Regionals: 3rd
I played Sablelock, the same card-for-card list that Nick Robinson used to get top 4 in masters. We will also be doing an interview with Team Fish Knuckles, so you guys should check it out :slight_smile:
R1-Yveltal: WT (1-0-0)
R2-Toad/Giratina: WW (2-0-0)
R3-Hex Ray: WT (3-0-0)
R4-Toad/Giratina: LL (3-1-0)
R5-ArchieStoise: WT (4-1-0)
R6-M Manectric/Keldeo/Garbodor: WW (5-1-0)
R7-Toad/Bats (David M, the eventual winner): T-ID (5-1-1)
T8-Toad/Giratina: WW (6/1/1)
T4- Sablelock: LL (6/2/1)
My Top 4 Opponent, Alex K played a deck fairly similar to mine, except he played lasers, while I took a denial/mill focus. He got the T1 laser both games and I wasn’t able to outpace him.

Won a league challenge today with Raichu/Bats.

Ames, IA League Challenge: 1st
Played Raichu/Bats. Nick and I kept up the ongoing trend of us playing the same card-for-card list. There were only 2 seniors there, so it was an easy win.
R1-??? (Senior) with Machamp/Ariados: W
R2-??? (Junior) with Fairy Deck: W
R3-Royce ? (Master) with Colorless Deck: W
R4- Nick R (Master) with Raichu/Bats: L
I was guaranteed to win seniors, so I scooped to help him out. I won when we played for fun though :stuck_out_tongue:

Just found out that the LC didn’t get sanctioned:(( updating it

Finally got my first two cities this weekend! They’re in a super easy area so I’ll be pretty disappointed in myself if I clear anything less than 90 points, although, knowing the area, I’m expecting a fairly easy 100 :wink:

Dude you are the best that ever was.

Sedalia Cities Report: Getting lucksacked is not fun at all :frowning:

Playing Lucario/Bats. Only 7 seniors with 3 rounds and no top cut.

R1-Tyrantiar
Already a good matchup, but I go first and end my turn by hexing. He forgets this and plays his hand down to only a Shaymin then benches it, only to realize he can’t draw cards. It ends just a few turns later.
1-0

R2-Machamp/Mewtwo/Ariados
This deck was extremely clunky and he didn’t know how to play the matchup at all, even fairly obvious things like utilizing Ariados to break focus sash, so I won easily.

R3-M Manectric/Regice
Boy oh boy, one of my best matchups, right? Not when I dead draw for the first 10 turns of the game (which ended up being the entire game). He took prizes with Regice one by one, and there was nothing I could do. Plus, his friend beat my round 2 opponent, and since he lost to this kid, he had better resistance than me and took 2nd, so I got 0 points.

Tomorrow is Cole Camp, and the current gameplan is to win.

Won Cole Camp today. Still could’ve done better this weekend though.

Played Vespiquen/Zoroark/Yveltal/Gallade

R1: Toad/Regice (Jr)
I have weakness on her and Regice isn’t good against me.
W
R2: Scrub with trash
She was 0-1 but there was an odd number of seniors and the only other 0-1 played her last round and was playing a junior.
W
R3: Toad/Bats/Aqua Base
I have type advantage and I just played really aggressively and won.
W

200/250.

Huge thanks to @CeladonBrit for giving me the starting list, which I only changed a few cards on. Let’s hope for just as much success in the next three weekends!

Started off this weekend with a win. Played Entei at Omaha Cities.

Round One: Scrub deck-W
Round Two: Night March (iirc)-W
Round Three: Night March-W
Round Four: Night March-ID. I usually don’t ID at cities due to how easy they are but this was against my close friend Isaiah Cheville.
Top 4: Metal Ray-WW
Top 2: Night March (Isaiah)-WW

Played Vespiquen/Yveltal/Zoroark/Mismagius today and won Lincoln, NE

Round 1: Scrub deck-L (dead draw with Combee active)
Round 2: Scrub deck-W (losers bracket ez)
Round 3: Gyarados/Eevees-W (he started lone magikarp and I sky returned.)
Round 4: Swampert-W
Top 4: Speed Giratina-WW
Top 2: (Isaiah again) w/ Vespiquen/Yveltal/Bats-LW~W (sudden death. I got it T2.)

Won another cities, that’s my 4th!

Won my first LC last weekend, forgot to update lol.

Played Landorus/Toad/Rock Guard.

R1: Toad Giratina-W
R2: Machamp-EX/Bronzong/Smeargle/Ariados-W
R3: Night March-W
R4: Landorus-EX/Machamp FFI-W

Landorus/machamp? I get that some people aren’t extremely competitive, but last round when you’re 3-0?

Have you seen his cities run? He obviously lives in a non-competitive area.

I was downpaired fam. And @jirachi123 calm down, Fort Wayne was arguably the hardest regs. My ciities were super easy, but cities shouldn’t give anyone trouble.

Topping 2 of the hardest senior regionals was a good amount of those points
