We start things off with a look at a $2.00 card that is making big waves in the meta, Radiant Greninja! Sometimes the cards that become meta popular end up being very expensive, but not this time! Adam breaks down how to use this card and how inserting this single card into your deck can make a big difference!


Art of the Week honors go to Mewtwo, which is the current Raid Boss in Pokémon GO and will be a star in the new TCG Expansion coming next week. Mewtwo is one of the most well known Pokémon, and has some incredible art over the years. We take a look at four full art examples that show how cool this Pokémon design can be.


The Power Rankings are out for NAIC and we see some familiar faces as well as some spicy picks. The top 3 picks aren’t surprising at all, and have dominated the Regional scene leading up to NAIC.


We also take a quick preview of Lost Origin, which will be releasing post-Worlds. Could the release of the Pokémon GO Expansion cause a spike in demand for sets leading into the fall? Time will tell!
