There is plenty to talk about this week as the TCG World continues to pop off with news, releases, and deck strategies! We take a look at Umbreon VMAX and how Stéphane Ivanoff’s list has dominated in competition. With the upcoming Leafeon VStar, it looks like there will be plenty of bench swapping happening if you decide to run the Eeveelutions!


Swablu is our Art of the Week and the chonky nugget does not disappoint! Make sure you check out the links below to take a look at the art that we discuss! Next we preview Fusion Strike in preparation for its release mid month. Not to be outdone, we also need to prepare for the release of Brilliant Stars which brings in new mechanics and energies to the game!
