It’s time to take a closer look at Ice Rider Calyrex VMAX and how it can be a rotation proof option for your deck! With a bunch of different art and builds, Adam breaks down how Inteleon can be used to keep this deck consistent and aggressive.


We look at the art of Snorlax and the different art styles that we have seen over the years. Ken wanted to look at Snorlax so Snorlax it is. We take a look at some examples that run the entire life span of the game. 


The Trainers Toolkit 2 is here and we run through its contents and explain how this product will be an important addition to your collection. With plenty of function and support, you will have a ton of options for your deck, no matter which mechanics you chose to build off of.


Finally we discuss the upcoming format rotation and what preparations you should think about now to prepare for the change. I think we can all get excited that ADP is finally rotating out.
