The Goonies - Modern Era

Alec goes over Galarian Obstagoon, a rogue deck that has a lot of potential in the current basic heavy format while being able to take down the VMAX decks.

Hey Everyone!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I hope you all had a decent run during Limitless Qualifier 3. Congratulations to everyone who managed to pull out a day two finish and made it to Top 8. I had planned on playing in Qualifier 3, but my sleep schedule has been so messed up to the point where I had not been able to stay awake for it. I didn't do much testing with my deck before the event, but I have been putting in a ton of games with this deck and plan on playing it if I manage to fix my sleep schedule for Qualifier 4. By the cheesy title, you can see that it is Goons. I was told about Goons the night before Qualifier 3 and I couldn't turn the deck down, even though it is a stage 2 and seems very clunky. Obstruct was too overpowered in my eyes to turn down even with the potential consistency/clunk issues. The abilities of Galarian Zigzagoon/Obstagoon are just bonus factors apart from the shining aspect of Obstruct. Being able to shut down a majority of the format by just stating an attack is absurd. With the addition of Scoop Up Net, it allows you to clear your bench to be able to completely shut out your opponent if they don't play ant evolution outs/Ultra Forest Kartenvoy in Baby Blacephalon. The abilities on Galarian Zigzagoon/Obstagoon set up some crazy plays with Yveltal GX and Sableye V to be able to take quick KO's for big prizes on VMAX's or Tag Teams. VMAX decks with 320+HP that aren't named Dragapult VMAX can be a problem, and these two can shine in those matchups. Let's dive into the list to show you guys how to take those big beefy decks down.
