Who Said Owls and Dogs Can’t Be Friends - A Tourney Report from the NAIC

This was my third big event of the year (Athens Regional, Roanoke Regional). I should also mention that I recently became a competitive Pokémon player in October of 2016. Learning a lot from friends and watching tons of videos I picked up the game fairly easily…. Back to now, I spent the better part of a month figuring out what I wanted to play for the NAIC.

Metamorphosing into Day Two — Gedemer's NAIC Report

Introduction After the Special Event at the Origins tournament in Columbus, Ohio, back in mid-June, I knew I’d be playing Espeon-GX / Garbodor for the North American International Championship. The deck had everything I look for in a big tournament, and I was already close to perfecting the list. I reached out to Xander Pero, a big fan of the deck after his Top Four finish at Mexico Regionals, and we began to compare notes on the deck. I had a few ideas about the deck that I wanted to test out, and I began trying everything I could. Below...

How To Miss Day 2 With Only A Single Loss - A Regional Recap

How To Miss Day 2 With Only A Single Loss Howdy, Dead Draw readers! My name is Mitch and I'd like to take you through my slightly ridiculous regional journey, but first I'll start by giving you a little info about myself. I'm the kind of guy that always suggests goofy things... always. Plasma Badge/Deoxys being my longest running joke. If somebody says they are thinking of playing quad Celebi, I am right there saying DO IT! I've won some League Challenges in my day but I don't get out to too many tournaments much larger than that, and I...
