Burnt Cheese — Reviewing Wisconsin Regionals

The final North American Regionals of the season has come to a close. And Blacephalon-GX surprisingly took the whole thing down; preying on the uprising of Zoroark-GX decks without Dewgong, almost an even matchup with Reshiram and Charizard-GX, and the same old same old Marshadow. Blacephalon-GX may be the best deck to abuse Let Loose; when you thin your deck well, you rarely draw poorly off it yourself and all you need after your first turn are a few Poipole in play to start using Charging Up when they evolve into Naganadel. I wasn’t surprised by another finals appearance by Blacephalon-GX. With a great player at the helm in Ian Robb, it’s clear to see why the deck did so well in his hands. Moving forward, I think Blacephalon-GX is one more deck that people will have to worry about, and Zoroark-GX decks might have to adjust again to increase their matchup percentage against it. Reshiram and Charizard-GX decks might want to play more non-GX Pokemon to push out a better matchup themselves. Here is the complete breakdown of each deck in Day 2:
