Rayquaza deserves attention for Worlds - Part II

In this article Gabriel continues his analysis about Rayquaza GX.

08/20/2018 by Gabriel Semedo

Hello again! I'm back to bring the second part of our review on the Rayquaza GX (CLS; 109)  deck. Many people are talking good and bad things about the deck, many saying that the deck is too aggressive and loses to itself by discarding their own resources and others saying that the deck simply is not that good. I still find the deck excellent and it hits head-on against Tier 1 of the current metagame, I believe if players do not prepare properly to face Rayquaza-GX, the deck will amaze the world.

After reviewing the standard Rayquaza GX (CLS; 109)  list in the previous article, it's time to look at the other two more important parts, which are the other deck options to compose the Rayquaza-GX deck and the main metagame matchups. We know the deck has potential, but we must understand in depth how we can adapt the standard list of the previous article to the metagame we expect from the Worlds, so it is fundamental to analyze the matchups and then think of cards that can compose the Rayquaza-GX deck in order to keep the deck strong and prepared against possible threats. There is much to be talked about in this article, so let's get down to business.
