Hey everyone, sorry it has been a little bit since my last installment of The Lab, but I can assure you I have been testing a lot for worlds and am excited to share with you what I have learned. We are closing in, finally, on the last couple weeks before worlds and it seems like time has flown by. It is almost time for Worlds and League Cups are even starting up. With the newest set officially being legal next Friday I already have a League Cup next Saturday which is going to be some good tournament practice with one of my final deck options before I leave for Worlds on the 22nd. My goal is to have my choices narrowed down to only two decks before leaving for Worlds so that I am not second-guessing myself the night before like I know a lot of us do. This is something that I have found is very important to the success of a player at a large event such as worlds. With that being said, let me give you a little bit of an overview about what is going to be in this article. I have tested a lot with Zoroark Control, Buzzwole, and Shining Lugia. Yeah, I said Shining Lugia. So, after a lot of testing, it came to my attention that the format really has not changed and that the dominant decks are still dominating, but we are just adding Rayquaza as a deck that needs to be watched out for. Cards like Scizor GX, Shiftry GX, Electrode GX, and Banette GX seem sweet, but their time to shine will not be until after the new rotation when we begin our new standard format after worlds.
