Hey all! I hope you are enjoying the holidays as much as I am. It has been awhile since my last article and a lot has changed! We have had a Regional in each format with a couple of the best players in the world taking home the titles, Zoroark has reared its head in both formats, and my queen Gardevoir has been dethroned as the best deck in the format. While I have not attended a major tournament since Hartford back in October, I have been attending League Cups and helping others prepare for the larger events. I am excited to head down to Dallas in a month so I can finally compete in another Regional. Today I would like to discuss a bit how I have found success at League Cups so far before discussing the Expanded format.
But, before all of that, I have an exciting announcement! After talking with Christopher and Alex a bit, I will be taking over the SixPrizes Podcast. Running a podcast has been something I have wanted to do for a while, but thanks to the encouragement of some of the players I talked to the past few weeks, I decided to run it by the higher-ups here at 6P and was well received. To give you an idea of where my head is at, here are some of my current goals for the podcast:
- Two episodes a month
- Have 1-2 other 6P writers on each episode as rotating co-hosts, while also inviting 1-2 other players each episode
- Discuss the state of the metagame, focusing on whichever format is more relevant at the time
- Try to highlight 1-2 cards, decks, or matchups that are of particular interest or contention in the current state of the game
- Discuss any relevant news or non in-game topics
- Answer a few questions from readers/listeners each episode
All that said, I would love to hear from you all about what you would like to see in the podcast. We are doing this for the benefit of our listeners, so any suggestions and feedback will be taken seriously. Please leave any initial thoughts in the comments of this article or message me on Facebook or Twitter.

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
