Don’t Gamble Away Your Regionals — Final Thoughts for Atlantic City

Expect to see a lot of Welder in New Jersey. The most popular decks right now are what’s become known as “Welder Toolbox” (previously Reshiram and Charizard-GX / Jirachi, although many lists have cut the former entirely), Mewtwo and Mew-GX Toolbox builds, Malamar / Giratina, and Pikachu and Zekrom-GX. With quite the disparity between these decks and the rest of the field it’s more simple, or so it seems, than usual to pick a good choice for any upcoming event since you can know what to expect. Of these decks Mewtwo and Mew-GX Toolbox decks are by far my favorite. I’ve mained the deck at recent League Challenge and League Cup events and have the most experience with it than with any deck in the format right now. I’d like to share my results as this type of data can be useful and of course, as I have them all logged it’s easy to do!
