Winter Regional Championship Results

Another Regional Championship has come and passed, which means this season is one step closer to finishing. Here are the decks that did well at the 2012-13 Winter Regional Championships!


1) Alex G (Landorus EX/Mewtwo EX/Tornadus EX)
2) Sammy S (Rayquaza EX/Eelektrik)
3) Matt G (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
4) Stefan Tabaco (Darkrai EX/Mewtwo EX/Bouffalant)


1) Brent Siebenkittel (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
2) Harrison Leven (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
3) Daniel Lopez (Darkrai EX/Mewtwo EX/Bouffalant)
4) Justin Sanchez (Tornadus EX)


1) Andrew Krekeler (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
2) Alejandro Luna (Garbodor/Landorus EX/Mewtwo EX)
3) Kevin Forbes (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
4) Dan Richard (Garbodor/Landorus EX/Mewtwo EX)


1) Trevore Read (Rayquaza EX/Eelektrik)
2) Matthew Chin (Rayquaza EX/Eelektrik)
3) Chase Moloney (Rayquaza EX/Eelektrik)
4) Karl Angeles (Landorus EX/Mewtwo EX/Bouffalant)


1) Ray Cipoletti (Darkrai EX/Mewtwo EX/Bouffalant)
2) Dylan Bryan (Darkrai EX/Garbodor)
3) Michael Skoran (Blastoise/Keldeo EX)
4) Azul Garcia Griego (Darkrai EX/Mewtwo EX/Bouffalant)

Overall, there was a wide variety of successful decks at these Regionals. While it seems like Blastoise/Keldeo EX was the most popular, it was not dominant by any means. Each area’s metagame differed greatly, which caused much different results across the country. In general, all of the major archetypes were represented in these results. The only ones missing are Hydreigon and Ho-Oh, neither of which were very popular to begin with. So, there you have it. Congratulations to all of the players who did well over this weekend! We’ll see how the format shifts as we head into State Championships.

    Gabodor having two second place finishes is fairly significant considering that it did not see much success at Cities. I myself finished in top 32 with a Garbodor variant. Too bad nobody won with Garbodor.

    Nice results. Interested how Darkrai-EX/Garbodor works. Me. Got top 8 with Empire

      It works like any Darkrai deck works except without Dark Cloak (Unless you have a Tool Scrapper in hand).

    I think the Sammy S in SoCal was Sammy Sosa.

    Surprised to see RayEels still so relevant and it able to compete. Perhaps that will change for cities with the addition of plasma storm!
