We begin with our most budget friendly Card of the Week ever! Rapid Strike Malamar can be picked up on TCGPlayer for about a buck and it brings a serious competitive style to the table! It took second place in Liverpool and was able to hang with the likes of Arceus VSTAR, Mew VMAX, and Gengar VMAX! We profile a deck that can be assembled for under $35!


Totodile is our Art of the Week and we have some prime examples of different art styles! Our featured illustrators vary in experience and mediums and Totodile reaps the rewards. Make sure you check out our blog to see the cards for yourself!


Logan Paul is in the news again and we are all grossed out by it. We get through the topic and then needed a shower to wash his name out of our mouths. 


Finally we talk about the upcoming Level 3 League Battle Decks which at $30 offer the easiest path to competitive play. Bringing a 3/3 V/VMAX line, TPC is pushing their value proposition of these decks to the limit!
