A Washed-Up Weekend: Lapras/Quagsire in Memphis

Hey 60 Cards readers! Isaiah Bradner here; I entered last weekend's Memphis Regionals with high hopes to compete for another Regional Championship. I was fortunate to win the first Regional of the year held in Philadelphia and I also happened to be the defending Champion at Memphis (both in the Senior Division). Unfortunately, things didn’t go like I planned and I ended up placing top 32. Even though I didn't get the result I was hoping for, I am still super excited to tell you about the Lapras/Quagsire deck that I played at both the main event and the TCG Cup on Sunday. After going a combined 9-3-1 with the deck, I still think it was a good (and fun!) play and would strongly recommend it to be considered for any remaining events in this quarter. 

Many of you are probably wondering; “What in the world led you to play Lapras/Quagsire?" Last Thursday, a mere two days before the Regional, three of my friends (Michael Catron, Jon Eng, Gibby Tang Archer) drove down to stay with me for the night so that we could ride together to Memphis on Friday morning. As soon as they arrived, we eagerly started testing the format to find out what we would play. After about an hour of testing, we were all intrigued by a Lapras/Quagsire concoction that Michael had brought which was based on a European list that had been seeing some success. At first, I was hesitant to believe in the deck's ability, but the more we tested I began to see that it was a viable play. Here is the original list we were testing.



With a ten-hour car ride in front of us, I grabbed a few large baking trays (perfect size to play Pokémon in the car!) and geared up to continue testing Lapras/Quagsire against all the decks we expected see in Memphis. By the end of the car ride, we settled on a final list that three of the four of us ended up playing.
