Sizzling Hot: Fire is Insane

Check out Zach's hot takes from Madison behind the paywall!

Back from Madison

What’s up 60 Cards readers, it’s me Zach, and I am back home after a lengthy drive from Madison. I was able to place 17th at that event with Blacephalon GX (LT; 52) / Persian GX (UBO; 149) v and I also gained valuable insight on our new Unbroken Bonds metagame. In this article I am going over three of the best Fire-type decks, Reshiram and Charizard GX (UBO; 20)Blacephalon GX (LT; 52)  / Persian GX (UBO; 149) , and Blacephalon (UBO; 32)  / Salazzle (UBO; 31) ), and sell you on the idea that those are the three best decks right now. In Madison we saw similar variants of these decks battle it out in the finals, with Blacephalon GX (LT; 52)  / Naganadel (LT; 108)  winning, but where does the metagame move from here? 

You will find out below after the paywall, so let’s dive in!

Where the Metagame Places 

You might have seen Ian Robb win with Blacephalon GX (LT; 52)  / Naganadel (LT; 108)  in Madison against Azul Griego’s Reshiram and Charizard GX (UBO; 20)  with the thought that the metagame has been solved right there. While my personal testing shows that both of those decks are at the top of the metagame, we need to look into more stats to determine what we can expect going forward. The season is coming to a close with a handful of foreign events, the Origins Special Event, and the North American Interantional Championship so we need to find the absolute best decks. That’s where I am here to help. The three biggest factors that I want to look at are metagame trends, the top performing decks in this metagame, and the search of the best lists. In this article I will touch on these in a varying order, but my intentions are for the best read possible for all of you.
