Hey friends! Travis Nunlist here to help with some last minute prep for what is looking to be the biggest Regional ever. Memphis Regionals is currently projected to have ~1000 Masters, which is incredible! For the past year or so I’ve been really excited to see the “Biggest Regional Ever!” record broken time and time again, and have been very genuinely happy with the growth the Pokémon TCG has seen.
R1 Zoroark/Golisopod (Tord.dek) W R2 Buzzwole/Lycanroc W
R3 Tapu Bulu/Vikavolt W
T8 Decidueye/Zoroark LL
The deck ran fine during Swiss but I hit a string of very bad luck in T8 and lost in about 15 minutes to Kenny Britton’s Decidueye deck. Overall I thought the deck was a great meta-call and lost to “classic Greninja hands xD.” The list is essentially what I’ve been playing for Greninja in Standard except for the addition of Gladion & Tapu Fini-GX. Gladion is a very good card if you can figure out exactly what are in your prizes before you play it &
draw into it before you take all your good prizes. I cut a Skyla for it because the logic is that it can do a very similar thing, but searches your prizes instead of your deck.
Overall I still really like Greninja and think it is a very good play for Memphis because it seems like everyone has currently packed away their Giratina Promos. However, I will not be going over it today because I want to touch on some other concepts that have been flying more under the radar lately.
