Greetings PokeBeach community! I have not written since last month, where I went over a new way to play Pikachu and Zekrom-GX. That was my most recent article covering the current Standard meta. While this article will be packed with Standard content, I am going to be doing things a little differently than in previous articles.
For starters, despite the Player’s Cup tournament having public decklists, you can only see the decklists of your opponents. As such, I don’t have a great way of covering that event and providing updates on the meta or a few different decks. Additionally, I know I had moved Cinccino down my tier list in my last article, but it ended up being the deck I would have submitted for the Player’s Cup if I were qualified. It is definitely my favorite deck at the moment, with its new build very strong and overlooked at the moment. It has a lot of great matchups, and the new list feels much smoother and more reliable. I have a lot to say about the deck, but I am going to start the article off with the current deck list.
This concludes the public portion of this article.
