Prerelease report: I came 3rd in the masters nodding out to two players who both pulled Zacian V. My son cane second in the juniors by 4%, he forfeited a game as he forgot to put his prize cards out.
@Bushtopher - theme deck definitely the next step. Boosters are just a waste of cash. Laser Focus from unified minds and Thunderous Wave from Cosmic Eclipse would be my picks.
Laser Focus can be expanded in the future to make a Malamar based deck.
Also, find your nearest Pokemon league (search Play Pokemon) and get in touch asking when would be best to go along. They’re usually super helpful.
