A year ago, in this faithful event, I let victory slipped pass me. I've been replaying that game 2 of me against Sam in my head a million times or more. Just to show how much I really want a win. This year's ACQ is about 2 ~ 3 weeks ahead, and this may very well be my last OCG event (well, chances of me playing WCQ are quite high but not certain) since I'm going to the US come September.
I'm not gonna do a meta break down cause I am absolutely clueless of what people are gonna play. Prophecy seems hot, and High Priestess being the only money card making the deck quite affordable for competitive players. Verz and Firefist, along with Mermails all have strong presence in Malaysia. The new Incarnate Dragons are super broke, but they have a big pricetag to go with them, so I'm not sure how many will be paying for a deck like that. That said, I do see people playing that deck will do good, since its THAT good. None the less, we are gonna see HERO variants, Dark World and also Agents in the mix.
As for myself, I don't really have much time to playtest. I haven't really play for weeks now until 2 days ago. Chances are I'm gonna be totally random and play some hit or miss OTK deck. With 8 or more very viable decks in the format, side decking is gonna be tough, especially if every match up is just as deadly as the rest. I'm gonna be either set 5 and hope they don't have Storm, or go crazy and hope they don't have Veiler.
