After the release of Cosmic Eclipse, plenty of players were unsure on how the metagame would settle. The community talked highly of Arceus & Dialga & Palkia-GX [Unified Minds 156], that Pidgeotto [Team Up 123] would be broken with Bellelba & Brycen-Man [Cosmic Eclipse 186], and we all thought that Malamar [Forbidden Light 51] was a dead deck. Well, after the results of São Paulo, Daytona Beach, and San Diego, we learned a thing or two about Standard. This article will showcase the top five decks in Standard, a brief strategy for each deck, and my personal deck list for each deck. If you don’t own all of the cards for each of these decks on PTCGO, feel free to use code zlesage5 to save 5% on your order. Trust me, you will need these cards! That being said let’s jump into these decks.
