Notes
  • Both TCG Masters finalists (David Cohen and Ross Cawthon) were natives of Seattle, Washington!
  • Ross Cawthon's "The Truth" may be the most famous rogue deck in the history of the game. It was a completely unknown concept prior to this tournament; Cawthon selected a grab-bag of evolution lines and tech Pokémon that countered almost every other deck in the room. He famously even included the Tropical Beach promo that had been given to competitors the night before the tournament!
