Fast forward through our first trainer kit (we learned to play but wow not much thinking to do with those cards... luck of the draw extreme) to our first theme decks (Swampert/Sceptile, much more fun than the trainer game) and even beginning to modify them a bit and I realize this is kind of fun. Might it be even more fun to play someone besides my 6 year-old? And, I’ll do it under an account in his name that he can inherit and will be full of goodies... okay.
68 Theme Games later has been a blast. “My son” has a decent winning record with all of Hydro Fury, Leaf Charge, Twilight Rogue... but all of those decks can either “brick” or just be too slow for a Mach Strike player (maybe every other game is vs. MS) who hits their starting hand and is doing a Gible ascension on Turn 1. The deck I have found that holds its own best against Mach Strike and others is Tropical Takedown... lots of draw power and just enough other things you can do if getting to the Eggcexecutor is going sideways. That’s the fun of it too, you don’t just play it the same way every time like Hydro Fury (get Macargo... Swampert, Abomasnow to supercharge the water energy) - you get to solve the puzzle different ways. Nice preview of actually trying to build my own once I feel up to that...
Having fun so far- all you MS lovers try TT!
