Virginia reminders, metagame musings, and a Comic-Con sneak peek: see it all below!
1. Virginia Regionals
The next event on the Oragnized Play schedule takes place tomorrow at The End Games in Charlottesville, VA! Pre-registration is available here.
2. Fog of War
Vengeance splashed onto the scene with two Regionals on the same day, and all of the new MPs made an impact in some form. While the metagame will continue to evolve, last weekend’s results served to establish some of the new “decks to beat”:
- Android 13: Devious, Enraged, Tag Team
- Broly: Ruthless, Empowered
- Cooler: Devious, Enraged
- Gohan – to the Rescue: Tag Team
When preparing for this weekend, players would be wise to plan for an environment filled with stage-pressure decks! Saiyan’s uptick should continue, as its inherent stage gain/leveling can combine with a wide array of Ally tech to create an edge against the current field. Yamcha, Android 18, and any generally defensive (or Ally oriented) build all benefit greatly from the current presence of Broly and 13.
Aside from the newcomers, old favorites like Namekian Piccolo, Red Roshi, Orange 20, and many others remain equally viable – or have even improved! There’s also more to see within Vengeance itself, as powerful cards like Unleashed and Trunks Level 1 continue to fold themselves into the environment.
3. San Diego Comic-Con International
Comic-Con is next weekend, and Panini America will be there in full force! Check back next week for details about our exclusive swag – including two play mats (standard and alt. color limited/Con exclusive) and a new promo card!
4. The God of Destruction
