We begin our episode with a look at Chilling Reign from two different angles. First we look at some of the top performers in competition, with Shadow Rider Calyrex leading the charge. Next up is the art of chilling reign, with some of our favorites coming from illustrator, Sanosuke Sakuma.


Card of the Week goes to Ball Guy and Adam explains how this card can be used in competition. Ken is hoping to get this deck up and running for live play, as it looks equally fun and competitive. It is also a very cost effective option if you are looking to build this deck a la carte. 


Art of the week is Ursaring and we feature four cards. 2 of which show Ursaring’s sweet side, while the other two demonstrate how fierce it can be. Card art is always good at developing how Pokémon can be perceived in different ways.


We wrap up with a conversation about the card market, talking about how YouTubers and influencers have disrupted the market, and what that really means for players and collectors. From overpriced cards to sold out retailers, there is a lot of negativity surrounding the impact that social media and scalpers have had on things.
