Regigigas: Power Lock Power House

Hello everyone.  I’m Andrew Ramey and this is my first article here on Team Omar, I hope you guys enjoy this.

Regigas PromoWhen i first started glancing over the new set of triumphant, I noticed right off the bat that some old decks were going to get their hype back and possibly be top tier decks. I had read in a few articles on other sites which mentioned that Regigigas had placed 12th in Worlds ’10.  I was actually pretty surprised to hear this.

It gives you more time to set up the Gigas X. When I put 2 and 2 together (Triumphant and Gigas DP40) I knew i was building Gigas right away.

The 2 main cards out of the set that i think gives this an incredible boost are: Twins (89/102) and Black belt (85/102). These two cards are really great cards in Gigas, and I will explain.

Once during your turn you get to choose one of your own Pokemon, it is now knocked out (YOUR OPPONENT TAKES A PRIZE). You might think well dang that stinks, I am down a prize. Well come to find out that’s not so bad, in certain situations.
