    Default Dark Explorers Prerelease

    I just went to the Dark Explorers Prerelease in Brighton, Michigan on Saturday. I figured I would tell you as much as I could about it.

    Notable Cards 1st 6 packs:
    2x Enhanced Hammer
    2x Rare Candy (1 RH)
    2x Twist Mountain
    2x Ultra Ball
    1x N
    1x Hooligans Jim & Cas
    1x Accelgor (RH)
    1x Palpitoad (RH)
    1x Carnivore (RH)
    1x Crustle (RH)
    1x Torchic #15 (RH)
    1x Klinklang
    1x Galvantula
    1x Aerodactyl
    1x Blissey
    1x Scrafty
    1x Bisharp #72
    2x Plusle
    2x Minun

    Well, already this looked far from great from making a deck... but thats before you look at which cards I cannot use.
    Enhanced Hammer - There are no special energy cards in the set
    Rare Candy - No useable Stage 2s
    Crustle - no dwebble
    klinklang - no klink or klang
    Bisharp - no pawniard.

    I eventually settled on this for my deck
    2x Chansey #81
    1x Blissey
    1x Aerodactyl
    2x Plusle
    2x Minun
    1x Shelmet
    1x Accelgor
    1x Carnivine
    1x Joltik
    1x Galvantula
    2x Scraggy
    1x Scrafty
    2x Twist Mountain
    2x Ultra Ball
    1x N
    1x Hooligans Jim & Cas
    6x Dark Energy
    6x Electric Energy
    6x Grass Energy

    So my deck really had everything except a real attacker...
    My first game was odd for a prerelease... we hit time, I had a scare with decking out because of Plusle (saved by N as my last card), and I almost ran out of energy because I was constalty retreating. We were tied with 2 prizes a piece when time was called. He had a blissey up, and had chosen not to attack for a few turns. I had Scrafty up and Aerodactyl on my bech (those werent all, but they were the important ones). With the last energy in my deck I was able to retreat my Scrafty to pull up my Aerodactyl which hit for 100 and knockout on turn 2.

    My second game I don't remember too much of. I just remember that I took the final prize the turn after he benched KyogreEX

    My third game wound up losing to a zoroark and espeon. espeon's ability prevented me from using carnivine to get zoroark out of the active spot.

    So 2-1... much better than I was expecting for the cards I pulled

    Final 2 packs notables:
    Eelektross
    Zoroark
    Plusle (RH)
    N (RH)
    Dark claw

    Boy do I wish I had gotten Zoroark in the beginning. Oh well.

    No EXs for me, however my girlfriend did pull a DarkraiEX which was the highlight of the day.

    So enough about my prerelease, lets hear about all of yours. What were your best cards? What did your deck focus on? How did you do?

    Thats a rough start! I didn't get a chance to attend a Prerelease (all the more reason I need to start up this local league, make the PTO see there is a need for one). Its a good report on the event but I'm disappointed that you didn't get anything better ;_; I'll let people who did go discuss their experiences.
