Turbo Dark for Dallas

Zach shares his Turbo Dark deck behind the paywall as he prepares for Dallas

What’s up 60 Cards readers? It’s been an active week for me in terms of writing articles, but I want to make sure that I am able to get you as much up-to-date content as possible. Don’t worry too much about me, these articles are shorter than usual, but they pack great information. Whether it is a solid list or a discussion about the metagame, I would highly recommend picking up a subscription. This article will showcase my Turbo Dark list behind the paywall and explain my thought process on this deck. Anyways, let’s jump into it:

This deck is the most played Expanded deck, based on Cup results since December, and it certainly packs a punch! ZoroNinja is a powerhouse of a Pokémon that can quickly do damage based on the amount of Dark Energy in play. You can quickly accurate Energy in play with Patches, Elixirs, and Darkrai-GX too! This deck is relatively easy to play so if you are a newcomer to Expanded or a fan of beat down decks, this would be a great pick for Dallas.

I’m gonna start off by saying I’m likely not playing this deck for Dallas because I am currently favoring HitmonWobb and GardEon, but this is likely the best deck in the format. You might be wondering why I don’t want to play the BDIF and that is valid question to ask. I am merely worried about the inconsistent mirror match and that this deck will be countered in Dallas. There are a few cool new cards in the deck, like Guzz and Great Catcher, but I don’t want to be at the mercy of TOM pairings each round. I truly believe this list above can win Dallas because it is extra consistent and relatively easy to play. I know this article isn’t much, but I wanted to share this list, explain my quick thoughts on it, and that’s it! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe you even gained a list out of it! Before Dallas, I’m likely going to release one more quick article going over UNecroGarb so that you can all have access to a solid list for that new archetype. After Dallas, I’ll provide some light on some Sword and Shield decks as I prepare for the 2020 Oceania International Championships in Melbourne, Australia. Anyways, if you see me in Dallas, be sure to say what’s up! I love meeting new people and I love connecting with our community!
