An update :(

Hey guys, Jack here again, and I have some sad news. I did extremely poorly at Washington States and Seattle Regionals, and because of my measly 20 CP, my season is over. Because of that, I'm going to go on a hiatus from this blog (and my inconsistent updates) for a while. See you next September!

Welcome back to TheTopDeck! Today, I'm going to talk about the newest set, coming out with plenty of time for States testing! Let's go through some of the cards coming out in XY, and the impact they could have for States. Since everyone else is writing a review, I might as well write one also!

Hello, everyone, my name is Jack Stensrud, and welcome to TheTopDeck! I am a Pokemon player from The Seattle area who has had mild success starting in the 2014 Season. I have been collecting for nine years, have been playing in tournaments for four years, and playing competitively for one year. My personal favorite deck ever that I have played is Darkrai/Lasers/Hammers, which I went 2-4 with at BC Regionals in 2013. Anyway, I will post various things on this blog, such as tournament reports whenever I go to one, as well as Card Commentaries and a Deck Discussion every so often. Well, I hope that you enjoy my articles, and I'll see you around!
