Adam just couldn’t contain his excitement for the TCG Advent Calendar featuring Delibird that it had to be the first thing we talked about on this episode. If you pick one up and want to trade your Delibird, it is safe to say that Adam wants it!


Our card of the week is Origin Forme Dialga, which while only seeing moderate success in the big tournaments, still makes a fun and exciting deck to try out. With super fast energy acceleration and the ability to set up quickly, it has the chance to make a big impact as early as turn two.


Phanpy takes our Art of the Week and our examples are sure to bring a smile to your face. From an aesthetic that looks like crayons to Ken’s favorite crochet, Phanpy brings the joy. 


Lost Origin will be here this week so we take a look at some of the highlights to look out for and how they could become players in the current meta. TPC couldn’t chill out for a bit and just had to announce another expansion already, even though our next set isn’t even here yet. 


Worlds was a blast to watch and the Arceus-Flying Pikachu deck dominated the field. With some of the highest production value of any tournament stream to date, this Worlds was a lot of fun to spectate. 


Finally we talk about the McDonald’s cards that are back in Happy Meals and how you can no longer buy them a la carte. We hope you’re ready to eat some cheeseburgers and McNuggets!
