Battle Roads Report/Adventure of Aurasphere87.

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Hello fellow OHKOers, This is Mark back with my Battle Road report for the opening to our new 2011 – 2012 season! 

Myself, accompanied by a group of friends went to the South Bend and Angola Battle Roads in Indiana. Initially I was gonna back out of going due to monetary issues. However, thanks to my great friends I was able to get things together! On the way there we got hit by traffic from the Michigan State Game and Notre Dame game. We actually got to the tournament 10 minutes late expecting game losses but we luckily got there just in time to register! PHEW!!

I played Stage One Rush, also known as “Mega Dragonzord”, which features Yanmega, Donphan, and Zoroark. I also played 2 Mew Primes as  techs along with 4 Rainbow Energies for the Gothitelle match up.  I had been playing this deck pretty much since Nationals and decided to stick with it due to its great coverage and excellent match ups.

As the tournament started we were informed about the new Championship Point structure and given news that Regional championships would take place twice during the season. For the record I’m very found of the championship …

Deck Analysis: What a Rush! (Donphan Prime, Yanmega Prime, and Zoroark BW)

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a deck analysis for you guys.  This deck has been called many things: Megazord, Stage 1 Rush, and others.  I call my deck “what a rush” because it is an easier take off of Stage 1 Rush, and of course who doesn’t like the Legion of Doom?  The deck was popularized at Nationals by Kyle “Pooka” Sucevich, a tournament at which he narrowly lost in the finals.

The three attackers featured in this deck make the deck versatile, and add a toolbox like quality to the deck.  Here is a basic over view of the deck.  Donphan Prime is a great primary attacker.  It is tough to knock out, and can attack for just 1 energy.  It also has a type advantage over Mangezone and Zekrom.  Yanmega Prime is a versatile attacker that can snipe for 40 damage or attack for 70 damage.  The best part of Yanmega Prime is that he can attack for free (if you and your opponent have the same hand size) because of his “Insight” Poke-Body.  Yanmega is both disruptive and versaitle.  Zoroark BW is a card that I don’t really …

Jordan’s Rogue Way and a Worlds Decklist

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Hey everybody, my name is Jordan Baker. I’m 22 years old, I live in Michigan, and I’m a founding member of Team Warp Point. I’ve been playing Pokemon for just about two years now and you’ve probably never heard of me. My biggest accomplishment is making it to the top 16 round two years in a row with stupid ridiculous decks. Stupid, funny, quirky, gimmicky decks are sort of my specialty. I don’t really like playing meta decks and I despised SP decks with a passion when they were in format. However, I won’t play a deck just because it’s rogue, I also want it to be good.

I’m going to give you a really quick recap of some of the decks I’ve played over the past two years and then discuss my current deck that I’ll be playing for Worlds this year.

My love affair with rogue decks started last year at Regional’s.  Jumpluff had just come out and I decided that I wanted to play it. There were a lot of other people playing Jumpluff at regional’s, but most of these were JumpLux variants relying on Luxray G. Lv. X. My list played a heavy Sunflora line, …
