Anti-Meta for the Players Cup — Optimizing Decidueye / Galarian Obstagoon

Hello everyone! This is Grant back with another article for you all. Lately, I’ve been working with Decidueye in the Standard format. With the second Player’s Cup Qualifiers coming up, now’s the perfect time to be practicing the current Standard format. Since many people are tired of Arceus and Dialga and Palkia-GX and Eternatus VMAX, I wanted to put some time into a deck that isn’t one of those and can also beat them. Decidueye is certainly not a new concept. It’s had alright results in recent tournaments, but it’s still not receiving much attention. In my opinion, Decidueye might be the best deck in the format, and I would certainly play it for a Regional.
