Pikkdogs Battle Roads Report- The Super Indiana Weekend

Monday, September 19th, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with a 2 pack of Battle Roads Reports.

As you probably all know this past weekend was the first weekend of fall Battle Roads, hence the first weekend of the new tournament season.  Unfortunately there were no tournaments in my home state of Michigan, so I had to travel to Indiana to hit them up.  There were 2, one in South Bend and one in Angola.  Fortunately. the Michigan player base is full of a lot of cool and nice people who were willing to do the traveling with me.  So Saturday morning I got up early and traveled to South Bend, In with friends Joe, Rob, and Frank.  We also met our  buddies Bohdan and Mark at the tournament, and we all stayed the night on Saturday so we would be at a good spot to hit the BR on the next day.

So our crew was able to make it to South Bend with no trouble, we were able to use back roads to sneak around the game day traffic (our tournament organizer likes to schedule our tournaments right next to large college football games).  I had never been to South Bend before so I was pleasantly surprised by the town.  I thought it would have been a bigger place, but it was fairly small.  We played the tournament at a card shop there, and that place was fairly cool as well.

I had decided to play my Mewlock deck this weekend.  I will not post the list because it is basically the same list that I posted in a previous article.  The only change was the inclusion of Basculin, and I also added a Spinorak from HGSS to the list for Sunday’s tournament.

Decks You Will See at Battle Roads

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs and his sidekick Pedro here with an article about decks you are going to see at Battle Roads.  The rotation, Worlds, and the release of the Emerging Powers set all changed the face of the format.  This article will tell you about the decks that those changes brought on, what are there strengths, and what are there weaknesses.  If you know all about the decks before hand, you should have an easier time when you are sitting across from them.

Review of the Sigilyphs

Recently we had a request to review the Sigilyphs from Emerging Powers.

Why the heck would anybody want a review of 2 crappy cards like that.  They must be mentally deranged.

Now Pedro it’s not nice to make fun of the readers.  Bad Pedro.

I am a bad boy.  I might need-

Pedro this is a family website.  Please try to clean up your language.

A family website, must be a pretty desperate family to read this site.

Lets just go on to the article.
