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...

The Haunting in Washington

The Haunting in Washington

Welcome back to Dead Draw Gaming, Trainers! A couple of weeks ago I played in a Regional Championship in Seattle, Washington, and today I’ll be sharing my experiences there with you. The week before I had played a Garbodor / Trevenant deck for a League Cup, and after finishing in the Top Four, I was pretty set on playing that deck with a few refinements going forward. Thanks to Charles Randall for the original deck idea, and valuable insight when discussing the deck in the days before the event.   So, on the Thursday before the event, Cody Walinski and...

E-Breaking Through the Meta - A Madison Regional Recap

What is up with it, DDG nation! Nam Kim here (known to most as Kam) with a rundown on my 61st place showing at my 2nd regional tournament this last weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. For those unfamiliar, I am from the depths of North Dakota, playing competitively since January 2016, having a couple of top 8s and a single top 4 in Cities.  Not much to brag about, but I’ve come a long way; especially playing Mega Rayquaza almost exclusively the past year and half.   The Why?   I expected much of the format to slow down due to Garbodor...

We (Fl)Are(on) Great Again — 8/1/0 Day One with Flareon and Vespiquen in Toronto

We (Fl)Are(on) Great Again — 8/1/0 Day One with Flareon and Vespiquen in Toronto

  Introduction I was relieved to find myself qualified for the World Championships after the shocking news that was Pokemon changing the Championship Point payouts over the course of the season, and I was even more at peace after doing fairly well at Virginia Regionals. I had been playing to trek out to the Canadian province of Ontario, too, and test my skill in the Expanded format for the fifth time this season. In each of the events up to that point, I had used a different deck, all with varying levels of success. To varying extents, going into every...
