Hello friends! It’s getting to be the time of the year where the weather gets a little colder, people move a little slower, and the mass of Holidays is just around the corner. Last time I wrote was a few weeks before the Portland Regional Championship and we explored some Expanded decks I had been testing. In a rather unexpected turn of events, I ended up producing the TCG Stream for the event instead of playing myself. While I do love playing, doing more commentating and stream production has always been an interest of mine so I decided to seize the opportunity. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be and I didn’t have nearly enough time to do everything I wanted, but overall I really enjoyed it and hope I can do it again soon.
Lost Thunder is the biggest Pokémon TCG ever released to date, and it comes packed with no shortage of everything from the potentially playable to the apparent powerhouses. Its been an absolute blast trying out all kinds of off the wall ideas and I can’t wait to see what comes out of the next couple of events over the next couple of weekends in the LAIC and Roanoke Regional Championships. My first event in the new format will likely be the Anaheim Regional Championship in the Expanded format, but my testing has still primarily been focused on Standard because that’s where all the hype is right now, and I’m rather optimistic about the impact this set will have on Standard.
