2013-14 City Championship Results Thread – What Won?

We’ll be trying to keep track of as many Masters results as possible for this season’s City Championships. We’re looking for the Top 4 finishers and what decks they used so we can find out what decks are doing well during this important stretch of the season. Here’s an example of what we’d like to see.

Point Place, WI

1) Red (Blastoise/Keldeo EX/Black Kyurem EX)
2) Fez (Virizion EX/Genesect EX)
3) Eric (Darkrai EX/Hydreigon)
4) Kelso (Gothitelle/Accelgor)

If you don’t have all of the results, please post at least the winner. Try to give what Pokémon are in the deck, not an uninformative name that you made up. However, some common decks can be simplified into one name, such as Blastoise or Ho-Oh.

    How reliable are these stats? Are they player reported or some kind of more official method to collect the data?

    1. Kyle Sucevich

      Unfortunately, there is no “official” method to collect this kind of data, so we rely on the community to provide it. Maybe a few of the results are inaccurate, but the overall numbers should be on target.

    So based on these results, is anyone going to argue that Virizion/Genesect isn’t currently BDIF? It has the highest number in all three results categories and has so many benefits going for it after the rule changes. So many people bashed the deck early on, yet its winning more than all other decks. I think Blastoise, Lugia Plasma variants, and Darkgarb are certainly tier 1 with it, but I these results speak for themselves when you say the deck is arguably BDIF.

    1. Elle

      The fact that is “has the highest number in all three results categories” is largely irrelevant. There could have been 95% Genesect/ Virizion decks at these City Championships and thus this would be reflected to some extent in the results.

      1. C-Dub

        This is a good point, but i’m not sure it applies to this deck as much as other decks. Virizion/Genesect is not a cheap deck to make and there are not promos of the cards out there like Darkrai or Plasma have. I have a hard time believing that the field consisted mostly of this deck and thats the reason its winning so much. I don’t know the exact numbers that were played in each of these tournaments, but I think you have to say that the deck is out performing other decks in the format right now.

    2. RiverShock

      I’d say Plasma and, especially, Blastoise are close enough that Virizion/Genesect isn’t the clear winner in that race. Blastoise in particular because it’s probably only won less than Virizion/Genesect because it has a reasonably poor matchup against that deck.

    3. Zander Bennett

      Virizion/Genesect only has the amount of wins that it does because there are very few people with Beaches that are playing Blastoise/RayBoar (both of which easily beat Virizion/Genesect.

      1. C-Dub

        lol Beach is indeed a good stadium, but I wouldn’t say that it allows those two decks to “easily beat” Virizion/Genesect. I would say the matchup is close, mabye 50/50 if they use beach. You don’t think all these Virizion/Genesect decks that won and made these top finishes did it without playing Blastoise and Emboar decks with no beach?

    I see you’ve updated, but why is Virizion/Genesect/Cherrim not listed? If you put it as a variant of Virizion/Genesect quite honestly that doesn’t make much sense because of the fact that there is a “Blastoise” and “Blastoise/Frozen City/Outrage” category. The deck didn’t run Cherrim as a tech, the deck revolved around a 4-4 line of Cherrim, 2 Pokemon Centers, and Hammers. It was a stall deck and honestly deserves its own category.

    1. Kyle Sucevich

      Unfortunately, it’s very time consuming to add all of the results to the list. Sometimes decks end up getting combined into one category for simplicity’s sake. I also didn’t separate Virizion/Genesect/Garbodor or Virizion/Genesect/Drifblim from regular Virizion/Genesect. I realize they are all different decks, but they do revolve around the same attackers. I apologize if you feel a deck should deserve its own category, but it would be really annoying to separate out each variation, especially for just one result. Sorry!

      1. Alex

        lol I would say something witty like “Oh don’t worry there will be more than one result in a few weeks!” but I’ll probably stop playing the deck at city championships anyways haha. Thanks for getting what I’m saying though and I understand that it’ll be time consuming. Thanks for consideration.
