Yo. It's another wacky-deck day, and I think this one has an actual competitive chance. I'm sure some of you have seen those Raichu lock decks that have been going around- paired with Heatmor in Standard to get Devo Spray back, and occasionally in Expanded with Sentinal Stoutland to stop supporters (mostly Guzma), pickup Lillipup to get devo spray back, and Celebi-EX so evolved stoutland can use pickup.
And I'm sure some of you remember those Sableye/Garbs stall decks from 2013 Worlds, and Expanded format up through 2016. The ones that started using Trick Shovel to mill you out.
See where this is heading yet?
Anyways, I got to thinking, “What happens… If I combine them?” And so this deck
was born. Raichu stalls; sableye recycles; Goodra stops garbs,
eskate escape boards, and occasionally KOs. Everything else exists to keep the lock going. (Some of my card choices are credit to Ross.) This deck sacrifices that downright game-ending support lock for increased consistency, a faster end to the game, and more reliable victory.

The rest of the world must act as they see fit. If TPCi insists on keeping the Chat canned, that is their decision.
But that does not stop me from opposing it.
And I will oppose it forever.
