This Autumn is a time for fandom and friendship in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG). Konami is thrilled to bring Duelists four new releases in October and November, each celebrating the history of Dueling, and each uniting familiar forces in new ways.
Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers draws together some of Dueling’s most loved characters in one strategy! In a new twist, you’ll find a variant artwork version of Hiita, Wynn, Aussa or Eria in each Structure Deck. Phantom Rage makes allies of themes like Raidraptors and Phantom Knights, while powering up popular strategies of yesterday and today! Maximum Gold brings together an awesome collection of competitive cards and re-envisions your favourites like you’ve never seen before. And finally, head to Battle City with the Speed Duel: Battle City Box, designed for up to eight players to enjoy.
The Charmers are huge in Dueling fandom, and now they’re taking centre stage! Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers unites Hiita, Wynn, Aussa and Eria in one Spellcaster strategy, stealing away your opponent’s monsters and filling the field with their signature familiars. A new Spiritual Art Field Spell lets you negate the first monster effect your opponent tries to activate, so long as you control the right Spellcaster. And teamwork makes the dream work with a new Trap Card, Special Summoning a Charmer from your hand or Graveyard, then destroying any face-up card on the field if you control monsters with two or more different Attributes! Even better, you can banish it from your Graveyard to recycle a “Possessed” Continuous Spell or Trap and place it back on your field.
Awakening of the Possessed – Gagigobyte and Awakening of the Possessed – Rasenryu debuted in Dragons of Legend: The Complete Series. Now, two more “Awakening” familiars join the fight in Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers: new, powered up versions of Aussa’s Archfiend Eater of Nefariousness and Hiita’s Inari Fire. And if that’s not enough, Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers reprints cards that are great in any Deck, like Effect Veiler, Dark Ruler No More, and Solemn Warning.
Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers includes an entire 42-card deck that’s playable right out of the box. But Charmer fans will also find one exclusive new variant artwork version of Hiita, Wynn, Aussa or Eria in each box, foiled in a classic Ultra Rare finish! Each Structure Deck also comes with one of five Super Rare Token Cards exclusive to Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers, featuring new art depicting the day-to-day lives of the Charmers! There is also a Deluxe Game Mat available, featuring the same artwork as the Token Cards.
Structure Deck: Spirit Charmers arrives on October 22. Each box includes one Deluxe Game Mat and 42 cards: 35 Commons, two Super Rares, four Ultra Rares, one of four variant artwork Ultra Rares, and one of five Super Rare Token Cards. MSRP: 9.99 GBP/EUR per box.
Then in November, all that ‘familiar’ fun gives way to a Phantom Rage. The latest quarterly booster set hosts a whopping 17 World Premiere cards, the most ever, reinventing fan-favourite strategies from the past, revamping them with more powerful cards, and forging surprising alliances! Phantom Knights and Raidraptors unite under a shared banner, with shared cards that can work in either strategy, or knit them together for something new. Enter battle with mighty new Raidraptors and Phantom Knights, unleash an incredible Rank-Up-Magic, and unlock a new Xyz Monster that offers unparalleled access to your Extra Deck! Huge strategies like Dogmatika, Melffy and the Infernoble Knights all get new cards, while quirky Decks like the U.A. and F.A. athletes, and even Prank-Kids get new support!
If you’re looking for something entirely fresh, a new band of Beast, Beast-Warrior and Winged Beast monsters align with furry friends from past themes, for a flurry of banishing and Link Summoning! A robotic tribe of Wyrms and Psychics load data to the Graveyard, building out computerized infrastructure for Synchro and Xyz Summons. And an elite team of Warrior monks work together to make countless Fusion Summons, relentlessly adding Spell and Trap Cards to your hand and unleashing an incredible Spell Card that fills your field with Tokens, then immediately Fusion Summons up to two times!
Phantom Rage is also packed with new cards that can fit in lots of different Decks, from a Level 8 Beast with 3000 ATK you can Special Summon anytime you’re outmatched on the field, to new Trap Cards that render your opponent’s freshest Summons useless or shred their Extra Deck to pieces. Above it all stands a breath-taking new Xyz Monster you can Special Summon by overlaying any of your Xyz, so long as an Xyz Monster has battled. Once it’s out, this world-smashing Machine-type commands a devastating effect that sends every other card on the field to the Graveyard!
The past and the present unite when Phantom Rage arrives on November 5. The complete set includes 100 new and different cards: 50 Commons, 26 Super Rares, 14 Ultra Rares and 10 Secret Rares. MSRP: 3.99 GBP/EUR per 9-card pack.
From there it’s a case of gritty to pretty: Maximum Gold arrives one week later, marking the first appearance of new Premium Gold Rares! The next evolution of Gold Rare technology, Premium Gold Rares feature golden outlines and borders to frame iconic art, while symbols like Level stars and Attribute icons glimmer and shine like never before. And that’s not all: over 100 cards appear as gold-lettered Rares, adding a touch of class to popular reprints.
Each box includes four Maximum Gold packs with seven cards each: five gold-lettered Rares and two Premium Gold Rares, a total of 28 cards per box. And six of Dueling’s most popular monsters return as variant artwork Premium Gold Rares, including Droll & Lock Bird, Elemental HERO Stratos and Apollousa, Bow of the Goddess!
Unearth your own treasures when Maximum Gold is unveiled on November 12. The fullset contains 162 cards: 110 Rares with gold lettering and 52 cards printed as Premium Gold Rares. MSRP: 29.99 GBP/EUR per 4-pack set.
