Rochester, NY - Hammergirl Anime August Event
Name: Josh A.
Deck Name: Rem Battoru
How was the regional? The regional was a ton of fun!! every match was really close, and everyone i faced were very fun to play against and super nice. cant wait for the next tourney to play against everyone again.
How do you win with your deck? there are a bunch of little combos you can pull off like the restander with the bomb at lvl 0 but the main points of the deck are typical re:zero. lvl 1 emilia combo to run through your deck and set your end game up. try and get deck refresh late lvl 1 to clear trash of climax. early play healer rem lvl 3 early and if you make it to lvl 3 play rem mil lvl 3 to try and finish them off on your first turn of lvl 3.
Any shoutouts? i have to give alot of credit to our local tourney group for helping me revise my deck and theory craft different situations. its really helped me build this deck to what it is. its not perfect but its getting there.

How was the regional? Despite my deck not running optimally due to not drawing the gate combo, my opponents also had issues with climax flooding, so the matches all ended up being sub-optimal. It was a good experience for all knowing how to play sub-optimally.
How do you win with your deck? Ideally, able to bring out either the Eve Level 3 or alternatively Chisato Level 3 at Level 1 and cruise by maintaining hand size and/or board presence.
Any shoutouts? Thanks to all who have offered advice and play-tested with me!

How was the event? The tournament was a lot of fun and ran smooth. It was good chance to play everyone and gain deck insights/experience ahead of tournament season.
How do you win with your deck? Standby the 1/1 Utaha at Lv0, the 2/2 Megumi at Lv1 and the 3/2 clock kick Megumi at Lv2. Use my level zero card effects to grab backups, healers and finishers as needed. The goldbar CX combo and restanding Utaha deliver the finishing blow.
Any shoutouts? Thanks to all the Hammergirl regulars who came & participated in the tournament, and to HotC for running the event! Special thanks to Hitoe, who shares her seiyuu with best girl, Utaha.

Love Live! Sunshine!!
How was the event? The event was really fun. It was nice to get back into a competitive environment for JP WS. It was also nice to finally play against a bunch of deck builds that I saw in action for the first time.
How do you win with your deck? Pick a level 1 gameplan and commit to it. If you manage to get both colors at level 1, enjoy the options. Use the level 1 You for handsize/getting through a decompressed deck. Use the Mari as a beater and possible free plus. Early play at level 2, and use the Mari to top-check to set up better hand-fix and You-burners. Maybe re-shuffle your opponent at level 3 to decompress them and win the game. Standby is there simply for the trigger, and the spread is based around the Mari and the You. Pretty good deck that Japan has come up with, but weird playstyle to get used to.
Any shoutouts? Shoutout to the WS community in Rochester for play-testing with me. Shoutout to Henry C for talking playstyle of this deck with me. Shoutout to Luke for holding another well-run tournament. Shoutout to best girl You for having great late-game cards! Can't wait for Aqours' Live in LA this week!

Is the Order a Rabbit??
How was the event? Once again, it was a lot of fun to play in this event! Still struggling to figure out what I play in Regionals in the fall, and it's nice to play so often and try to narrow it down.
How do you win with your deck? Get cards and mill using "Childhood Friends" Syaro to get backups and "Present Exchange" Syaro. Wall up at Level 2 with Present Exchange and play backups to beat everything your opponent throws at you. Direct for game. Use Chino & Cocoa, Good to Have Met and Welcome! Syaro as finishers if it comes to that. Pull more RRs in Dear My Sister boxes than I did to replace "Rabbit Ear Parka" Chiya.
Any shoutouts? Shoutouts to the usual people. Ryan's Place, the HG Crew, and HotC. Lots of fun playing WS, all summer long. Also thank you to Bushiroad for making Syaro a decent deck finally. Best girl has a good deck!

How was the event? It was a lot of fun! Again, it's good to get the practice for Regionals in the fall and play against everyone else bringing their "A" game. Fun times with the HG crew as usual.
How do you win with your deck? Build up cards in hand with Level 0 and 1 tech. Play Present Exchange, Rize at Level 2 to heal and break up my opponent's walls. Stay at Level 2 as long as possible. Use Chino & Cocoa, Good to Have Met at Level 3 if everything else fails or if the game went on long enough that I have the resource.
Any shoutouts? Shoutout to "Ryan's Place" crew once again (this is getting redundant) for all the games and memes. Also shoutout to Heart of the Cards for running this early tournament series. Going ham, all summer long.
Also, shoutout to Steven C, who borrowed and won with this deck right before he left for the summer. Good deck is good.

How was the event? Enjoyable! It was fun seeing what people brought to play. There was a bit of rivalry between Chris O. and I, and both our decks did some weird things in our games so it was a fun couple of games.
How do you win with your deck? Refresh and compress with Emilia. Early heal with Rem. Decompress opponent with Ram. Roswaal.
Any shoutouts? Shoutout to Hammergirl players, Luke M., and my opponents: Josh, Deylan, Pat, and Chris. Thanks to Bushiroad for such an interesting game. Finally good job and good luck to the L&L team for great final set and farewell.
