You’re going to think this new card is… a hoot! (Editor’s Note: We’re sorry… so very sorry. But Tyler isn’t!) …ahem. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, it’s time to introduce you to the best thing to happen to Madolche Decks since powdered sugar: Madolche Hootcake!
Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy released to great fanfare this past weekend! With new cards for a huge number of Decks, both past and present, there’s something for just about every Duelist out there, especially Duelists who want to crank out some of the biggest monsters in all of Dueling. With their Level-changing abilities, you can use Mecha Phantom Beasts to Summon Rank 9 and 10 monsters on a fairly regular basis, but sadly, those options are fairly limited. For now.
But it won’t remain that way for long, because the countdown to Number Hunters is on! If you haven’t heard of Number Hunters yet, be sure to read this page first, and then come on back. Every week from now until the release of Number Hunters, we’ll have a cool Deck idea to get you thinking about what you can do with some of the new cards that await you! Read more…
The last few months of the year are holiday season, the traditional time for us to release our Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Collectible Tins. Even though Summer isn’t here yet, we wanted to give you a first glimpse of what’s to come. (You’ve heard of Christmas in July? Think of this as Christmas in May….)
These will be our 12th annual Tins, and they’re based this year around the four Dragon Rulers introduced in Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy (on sale tomorrow, May 17th!). Each 2013 tin design features one Dragon Ruler on its lid: Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders; Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls; Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos; or Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms. These avatars of the elements have been tearing it up in tournaments overseas, and are already building a fan base here in North America.
Just like in previous years, the tins will come in two waves. Wave 1 will release at the very end of August, with Wave 2 coming out around November.
These tins provide an opportunity for Duelists to get their hands on FOIL, Secret Rare versions of the Dragon Rulers, for the first time! Each tin comes with a Secret Rare version of the Dragon Ruler shown on the lid. Plus you get an awesome-looking storage tin to carry your decks and cards in. Keep bad mojo away from your cards by encasing them in the protection of a Dragon Ruler!
Also included are 4 Super Rare cards in each tin, reprinting popular cards old and new. One of these cards in each tin is one previously available only as a promotional card to SHONEN JUMP Alpha subscribers or manga readers (different in each tin). The other 3 Super Rare cards are selected from popular cards like Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning and Ally of Justice Catastor.
Finally, each tin includes 5 booster packs of a previous Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG set!
Stay tuned to the official web site this summer as we slowly unveil more cards that will be included in this year’s Collectible Tins!
With its ability to Summon 2 Mecha Phantom Beast Tokens and the ability to Tribute a token to materialise an actual monster in its place, Mecha Phantom Beast Hamstrat is an integral part of heaps of Mecha Phantom Beast combos. But even outside Mecha Phantom Beast Decks, there are plenty of ways to use Hamstrat, and one of the coolest is to gather the Tributes required to Summon Egyptian God Cards! Read more…
This past weekend, the YCS in Meadowlands, New Jersey introduced Hidden Arsenal 7: Knight of Stars to the major competitive Dueling landscape. As is always the case with new cards, new questions and new situations arose, and as always, our incredible volunteer Judges rose to the challenge and performed admirably.
As is the case in any game or sport where officiating exists, which is basically all of them, players and officials can and will disagree on the rules and their interpretations. In this game, we welcome such disagreements as they promote discussion and help us understand the different ways our players and judges view the game, the cards, the card text, and the rules in general.
All information gathered is carefully examined and processed so that we can improve the way our cards are written and create the best gameplay experience possible for all Duelists. It normally takes a while before you see any changes based on such information, but an interesting situation arose this past weekend in New Jersey that we feel a need to address right away, as it’s likely to affect this weekend’s National Championships around the world.
