Spring is here in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME and Konami have plenty of fresh releases packed with Dueling promise! First, it’s time to gear up with Structure Deck: Mechanized Madness, a new ready-to-play release starring the colossal clockworks of the Machina! Then in May, dozens of fan-favourite Decks get stellar new support in Eternity Code, Spring’s quarterly core booster and the follow-up to Ignition Assault. And finally, the next chapter of Speed Dueling begins as old rivals return in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Speed Duel Starter Decks: Match of the Millennium & Twisted Nightmares.
Machina Gearframe and Machina Fortress once stood at the center of grand Machine armies, bolstering classic tournament themes like Gadgets and Geargia. Shaking off the rust and ready to shine again, the Machina are back in Structure Deck: Mechanized Madness! Gearframe and Fortress return, but this time there’s a new commander calling the shots: Machina Citadel! Unleash it by first placing it in your Graveyard, then revive it with its effect: whenever an EARTH Machine under your control is destroyed, you can Special Summon Machina Citadel to the field. From there, its 3000 ATK can run roughshod over your opponent’s Life Points, and its ability lets your hurl a Machine-type you control at your opponent’s monsters; that monster will be destroyed, but so will every opposing monster with equal or lower ATK!
Structure Deck: Mechanized Madness launches April 16. Each Structure Deck contains 1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide and 42 cards: 37 Commons, 3 Super Rares and 2 Ultra Rares.
One of the year’s most anticipated releases finally arrives in May, as Eternity Code brings new support for Ignition Assault themes like Ancient Warriors, Plunder Patroll and the @Ignisters! The game has changed, giving Duelists more ways to make the most of their Fusion, Synchro and Xyz Monsters. With countless competitors looking to leverage fan-favourite strategies, Eternity Code brings amazing legacy support for time-tested themes like Dinosaurs, Madolches and Witchcrafters, plus new classics like Dragonmaids and Code Talkers. If you collected cards from Rising Rampage, Chaos Impact, The Infinity Chasers, Fists of the Gadgets and Mystic Fighters, you’ll find new cards for some of the strongest strategies in those releases. Eternity Code has new cards for some of the biggest retro themes from Duel Overload too, making it easy to flesh out your Deck.
From Traptrix and Tindangled, to Megaliths and Marincess, to Gizmeks and Goukis and beyond, Eternity Code is a celebration of some of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG’s greatest hits, a crowd-pleasing cache of incredible cards for many of the game’s most-adored Decks! And of course, you’ll also find cards that are powerful anywhere: a Spell Card that Special Summons any Fusion Material named on a Fusion Monster in your Extra Deck; a Trap Card that negates the effect of any monster in your opponent’s hand or Graveyard, or that they banished, punishing them with 2000 damage; and a new Effect Monster from the line of Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, negating the effects of a Special Summoned monster and threatening their Life Points. No matter what Decks you love to play, Eternity Code has new cards you’ll want to collect.
