In the Race — Gedemer’s First Quarter Experiences, Observations, and Recordings

Roughly three months of Pokemon tournaments have passed and it’s a fine time to go over my personal results. For all practical purposes, I am including the London, United Kingdom International Championship within this collection. Since the beginning of the 2017-2018 season of play, I’ve been recording just about every personal statistic I have as a player. Going into this season, I’ve mentally committed to going to quite literally every event there is.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond - Gedemer's Shining Legends Set Review

Introduction Hey all, welcome back to Dead Draw Gaming. It’s that time again, time for another set review. This time, I’ll be going over the upcoming set, Shining Legends. It’s due for release on October 6, so there’s no time like the present to get acquainted with some of the cards, and start theorizing about potential archetypes, or additions, to existing decks that are sprung from the new cards.

Becoming a League Cup Legend - "Building the Foundation for an Invite"

_____________________________________________ Introduction _____________________________________________ Looking to qualify for the World Championships this year? Who isn’t! The most prestigious event of the year is a little easier to participate in this season, and much of that is due to the Championship Point payouts of League Cups. Whether you’re traveling halfway across the country for one, or simply walking down the block to your local game store, League Cup events are everywhere, and they are arguably the most important events you’ll participate in all season. If you can’t do well at League Cups, then you’re not going to play in the World Championships,...
