Buzzwole Makes Another Impact

Isaiah recaps his last two major tournament finishes, a Top four Brazil and Top Eight Virginia Report with a Standard Buzzwole-GX deck.

Hey 60cards readers! I’m back again with a report on the Latin American International Championships and the Virginia Regional Championships, both of which I was able to top cut. And of course, all this success was with the hottest Buzzwole list out there now.


What's the Play?


Entering Brazil I (per usual) had no idea what to play for the event. Going in I had Zoroark GX (SLG; 53) / Decidueye GX (SUM; 12) / Alolan Ninetales GX (LT; 132) , Sceptile GX (LT; 22) , and Zoro/ Lycanroc GX (GRI; 74) all as potential plays, none of which I felt extremely confident with. I continued to feel lost after Thursday’s testing, and to make matters worse, I finished 3-2-1 at the Friday cup with Zoro/Deci/Tales, all but eliminating that as an option. At this point, I and some friends (Rowan Stavenaw and Lucas Xing) went back to the hotel to finalize our plays. After finding out that  Zoro/ Magcargo (CLS; 24) had issues with time, I had ruled that deck out as well. So, with nothing else to turn to, I messaged Alex Shemanske asking for his Buzz/Roc/Tales list he was cruising through day one with. After playing a few sets against Zoro/Control and Blacephalon GX (LT; 52) / Naganadel GX (FLI; 56) , I was sure this was the deck I would play.
