Hey guys, Andrew here. I realize it’s been quite a while since I posted my Plasma Klang deck before the Colorado State Championships. Sadly I did not make it into the Top 16, but there will always be more tournaments.
This last weekend was the U.S. National Championships held in Indianapolis Indiana. The turn out for Nationals was pretty crazy! There were 234 juniors, 344 seniors and a whopping 927 masters! This is very clear evidence that the TCG is still going strong.
The winners can all be found here at The Official US National Championships page. I’m going to go ahead and cover the deck that won the Masters division for the US. The most played deck in the format was the Thunderous EX/Deoxys EX/Kyurem deck which can be found on google or other various sites. The gist of the deck is to use Thunderous EX to help attach special energies from the discard pile onto your Kyurem. Using Keldeo EX and Float Stone you’re able to Rush In/Retreat which negates the condition of Kyurem’s attack being unavailable next turn. Deoxys EX just sits on the bench acting like a Plus Power. Despite the popularity of this deck, another deck ended up seeing equal play and while it was certainly not a direct counter to T/D/K, it was the popular alternative.
The Gothitelle/Accelgor deck is a rather unique deck for how it’s played. The overall goal of the deck is to use Gothitelle’s Magic Room ability to prevent your oponent from using item cards like Switch, potions, Hypnotoxic Lasers and all tool cards as well. You get your Accelgor set up on the bench, but he will just stay there. It will be Mew EX doing your attacking for you. Mew EX will use Deck and Cover from Accelgor. This paralyzes your opponents Pokemon which prevents them from being able to attack you next turn while also poisoning them. Mew EX and a Double Colorless Energy will go back into your deck. On your next turn, you will use Dusknoir’s ability to move all the damage you did last turn onto your opponents benched pokemon. You do not want to knock out their active pokemon until their bench is cleared first. You keep repeating this process until your opponents bench is empty and thus knocking out the active Pokemon will win you the game regardless of how many prizes you’ve taken. All the trainers in this deck are designed to search out very specific stuff while discarding things out of your deck that you don’t need. You actually want to get your deck so thin that every time you use Musharna‘s ability, you will simply draw either your Mew EX or your Double Colorless Energy to set up every turn.
This deck utilizes several mechanics from the game to make a versatile attacker out of one of the least used EX Pokemon in the game. I’m very amazed to see this deck do so well considering it’s extremely inexpensive to put together and it proves that you can not simply buy your self the best deck and win. I’m very excited to see if this deck will make an appearance for World Championships in August. The next entry will be previewing the Plasma Cannon set that is due to come out soon! Thanks again for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
