I don't get it.
It runs no energy cards. It doesn't attack. EVER.And this guy STILL FINISHED SECOND.
You just have to wonder WHAT strategy this guy must have used to survive all of those other decks. Oh, and the reason he was at least able to win?* The players going up against the guy must have used up all of their cards to the point where they can't draw a card from their deck.*Guessing cause I don't watch the championships and stuff.
That's the entire point of this deck, the other two win conditions can't possibly be met if you don't attack. Stalling until the opponent decks out is the only option, but is entirely doable in this post-LTC world.Hell, he won game 1 in the finals and was well on his way to winning game 2, but lost it because time ran out and his opponent claimed at least four prizes. Then sudden death happened, and one weakness of this deck is that it stands NO CHANCE in a one-prize, sudden death scenario.If you want to see what happened:http://www.twitch.tv/pokemon/v/6954050Then skip to 2:55. (That's two hours and 55 minutes, not two minutes and 55 seconds.)
Actually, it's 4:40, not 2:55. My bad.
I beat the final boss of the GBC game by decking him out. Granted, I used the Haymaker, but still...
Now,I don't play the Pokemon TCG,but if I tried to do a yugioh match with only two monsters with the hopes of winning by stalling to the point of no cards,I'd be hard pressed to make it to the finals.I'm confused and amazed at the same time.
Wow. I only follow the TCG casually, but just glancing at that deck, it doesn't look like it takes much advantage of milling, either (i.e., discarding cards from your opponent's deck). It looks like just good, old fashioned stall. It must have been painful to watch.
Actually, it was riveting, if only for the sheer novelty factor. But then again, I'm guessing Seismitoad must've been hilarious too when it was new.
So from my understanding it's basically the card equivalent of Funbro-esque PP stalling? (Minus the heal pulse and whatnot)
