Playing with three full decks
The newest Pokémon TCG set, Sword and Shield - Lost Origin, was released last month. Now, the Pokémon Company has challenged three expert players to build unique decks using specific cards as their starting points. The cards in question are Delphox V, Hisuian Arcanine, and Radiant Steelix.
Did they manage to make viable decks with these restrictions in place? Click here to read the full breakdown of their decks, along with commentary from the other two experts.
If you’ve been opening up booster packs from the new Sword & Shield—Lost Origin expansion, you’ve probably found some very cool cards. But look a little closer—you might also have the makings of some awesome decks to try out. While you’re not likely to see these decks make the top cut at your next Regional Championships, you still might find that these cards are just as fun to play with as they are to look at.
We challenged three Pokémon TCG experts to choose one of these cards and create a deck that would be a lot of fun to play, and perhaps even good enough to win a few matches against your friends. What we got were three fascinating decks, all distinct in how they work. Plus, we asked them to comment on each other’s decks just to hear what they had to say!
