Hey there, 60cards readers. Jose here again and for this next article, I'll be analyzing three potential plays for Costa Mesa Regionals this weekend. Two of the decks I'll be looking at are nothing new, though the third deck surely is. First, I'll start off with Riley's Lonzo Dallas winning list. Following that, I'll move into a similar list of Kidd Starck's Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX who placed in Top 4 of Dallas. Lastly, I'll transition into a new deck which I think is a lot better in Expanded than Standard and that is Alolan Dugtrio. The ladder deck I'll be discussing can be a strong play for sure seeing how Glaceon-GX is more hyped in Expanded.

With that said, let's dive right into Rileys winning list from Dallas.

The Fox and the Purple Sludge

Lonzo (Dallas 1st Place)

4-4-1 Zoroark-GX

As you will see this is Riley's exact 60 because if it ain't broke don't fix it. Zoroark-GX is the main attacker of the deck and why this deck won Dallas. Riley chose the Foul Play Zoroark over the Mind Jack one. Honestly, it is a personal preference as both have their own merits. I personally prefer the Mind Jack Zoroark because it has the added ability bonus and is more effective against the mirror and other Zoroark-GX decks that play Sky Field.
