Last Minute Panic Picks for OCIC — Let’s Talk Lillie’s Poke Doll

Hello everybody! This is Grant Manley here with another article right before the Internationals taking place this weekend. As I’m writing this, I actually am set to leave for Australia tomorrow morning, and I could not be more excited. While my preparation certainly hasn’t been what I wish it was due to lots of school and other things, I still have logged my share of games and have two more decks to share with you all today. For Australia, Arceus and Dialga and Palkia-GX / Zacian V is still my frontrunner, but there’s two other strong decks that I am also considering.

Today I’ll be talking about Doll Stall and Galarian Obstagoon. While Doll Stall is a bit degenerate, it’s near and dear to me after I played it to a Top 8 at the Daytona Regional this season. I have since updated it account for the new set and the new rules. Galarian Obstagoon is a card that piqued my interest as soon as I saw it, and I’ve been going back and forth on the card in theory. I finally got a chance to tinker with a list and get some games in with it. Currently, I think Obstagoon is worth talking about and there’s a very real chance I play it in Australia. Let’s get right into it!

This concludes the public portion of this article.
