Another Charizard? Yep! The secret ingredient to selling cards is absolutely in the Brilliant Starts recipe! We take a dive into Charizard VStar and how it can be used in play. With some absolutely incredible art, this card looks to be a favorite of players and collectors alike.


Shaymin is featured in our Art of the Week as we look at a few diverse examples of how Shaymin can come to life in card form. We still can’t decide which form of Shaymin we like better, but we do know that we love Shaymin’s design either way!


TCG Live is in beta in Canada and a few creators are using a VPN to get their hands on it early! We discuss Azul’s streams and how the format and interface of the new client looks absolutely amazing!


Goldin Auctions sold the most expensive Pokémon Card ever while the rest of us prepare our wallets for Astral Radiance! We also dig into the latest VBattle Decks to help even a budget conscious player be competitive!
