The past, present, and future are set to collide – November 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Announcements
The past: Seto Kaiba and the Six Samurai return!
The present: Magical Musketeers and The Weather Painters appear!
The Future: Cyberse and Link Monsters!
This holiday season, Dueling history collides with the future of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) with Structure Deck: Cyberse Link, Kaiba’s Collector Box, the Spirit Warriors booster pack, and Circuit Break Special Edition! Personally, I’m ecstatic about the Kaiba Box because of how much I loved the Yugi Box, and I’m working on a dragon deck. i’m also really excited to see the cards in the Spirit Warrior packs. Anyway, there’s a lot coming up in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. Let’s go over the official information from Konami:
First, let’s talk about the new Structure Deck: Cyberse Link. This deck overclocks Cyberse and Link Monsters with powerful protocols that add more speed and more processing power to your Link Summons! Co-link your monsters to build a network of abilities to unleash a flurry of Special Summoning, including three new Link Monsters: Binary Sorceress recovers your LP and makes epic team-ups amongst your monsters; Tri-Gate Wizard negates and banishes opposing cards, and helps your forces deal double damage; while Encode Talker commands cataclysmic ATK boosts to beat even the biggest threats.
Cyberse Link features cards like Cosmic Cyclone, Storming Mirror Force, and Dimensional Barrier as well – powerhouse tech cards that can power up any Deck you play.
Structure Deck: Cyberse Link hits your network November 3 with a Beginner’s Guide, an updated Game Mat, and 43 cards: 38 Commons, 3 Super Rares, and 2 Ultra Rares. MSRP: $9.99 per box.
Following hot on the heels of Yugi’s Collector Box from September, the new Kaiba’s Collector Box includes Starter Deck: Kaiba Reloaded, a revamped version of Kaiba’s classic Starter Deck. Customize it for your Dueling style with three packs of Duelist Pack: Kaiba and Duelist Pack: Yugi – you could open fan-favorites from the good old days of Dueling like Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End, Pot of Greed, and Crush Card Virus!
And what would Kaiba be without his Blue-Eyes White Dragons? Starter Deck: Kaiba Reloaded comes with two copies of the legendary dragon, and the Kaiba’s Collector Box has an all-new Ultra Rare version with variant art. You’ll even get an OversizedBlue-Eyes White Dragon card, celebrating the invincible engine of destruction.
Kaiba’s Collector Box is available November 17, and each comes with: 1 Starter Deck: Kaiba Reloaded; 3 Duelist Pack: Kaiba booster packs; 3 Duelist Pack: Yugi booster packs; 1 Ultra Rare variant-art Blue-Eyes White Dragon; and 1 variant art Oversized Blue-Eyes White Dragon card. MSRP: 19.99 per box.
Also on November 17, the all-foil Spirit Warriors booster set brings Link Monsters and the Link Summoning mechanic into new territory, while introducing two all-new monster themes! The Magical Musketeers take up strategic positions on your field and trigger powerful abilities: draw cards, reload from your Graveyard, or search and Special Summon straight from your Deck when your opponent activates Spell or Trap Cards in the same column a Musketeer defends.
Boost your monsters and build the perfect storm with The Weather Painter theme! Combine powerful Continuous Spells and Continuous Traps to give “localized” effects to your monsters in select Monster Zones. Search your Deck, bounce cards, break your opponent’s hand and make direct attacks, all on your way to Link Summoning a massive boss monster with deadly control effects.
Finally, the fan-favorite Six Samurai theme returns! The new generation of Samurai work from the shadows, protecting each other from the Graveyard and reviving one another when they fall. A new Contact Fusion unites your forces under a single banner, dominating the field with an incredible banishing ability to vanquish your opponent’s best cards, while a lighting quick Spell Card ambushes your opponent with unexpected attacks, and a devious new Trap Card lets you skip your opponent’s turn entirely!
Spirit Warriors arrives November 17 with 60 cards: 40 Super Rares and 20 Secret Rares. MSRP: $3.99 per pack.
As December rolls on, the Circuit Break continues! Get a second chance at cards like Evenly Matched, Borreload Dragon, Akashic Magician and SPYRAL Double Helix with Circuit Break Special Edition. Each box comes with three packs of Circuit Break, plus 1 of 2 Super Rare preview cards from the Spring 2018 booster set and 1 of 2 Super Rare variant cards: The Winged Dragon of Ra – Sphere Mode, or Stardust Chronicle Spark Dragon!
Circuit Break Special Edition is available December 8. Each box has three booster packs, 9 cards per pack, and 2 Super Rare cards. MSRP: $9.99 per box.
