Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game: Cyber Strike Structure Deck

Fish Kill side ad

Master the forbidden Fusion arts that combine fierce Dragon and Machine monsters with Cyber Strike!

Cyber Strike enhances both of Zane Truesdale’s strategies from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime! This is one of the most customizable Structure Decks yet. You can choose to focus on Zane’s original Cyber Dragon Fusion strategy, his Dragon-based Cyberdark strategy, or play both together in a single Deck like in the later seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.

Cyber Dragons! You can fuse together multiple copies of Cyber Dragon with Power Bond to create Zane’s signature Cyber End Dragon and raise its ATK all the way to 8000! It’s easier than ever thanks to a brand-new monster that can add Power Bond from your Deck and let you use monsters in your Graveyard as Fusion Materials for it.

Cyberdarks! Load your Graveyard with Dragons, then equip them to your “Cyberdark” monsters to power them up! Use Cyberdark Impact! to fuse together the original 3 “Cyberdark” monsters to create Cyberdark Dragon or use Overload Fusion to fuse any 5 “Cyberdark” Effect Monsters to create Cyberdarkness Dragon instead.

Both! Why choose just one when you can have both? Structure Deck: Cyber Strike specializes in fusing these two strategies together into a powerful hybrid strategy, and the ultimate symbol of this fusion is a new fusion of Cyberdark Dragon and Cyber End Dragon! This 5000 ATK powerhouse can also be Summoned by Tributing Cyberdarkness Dragon while equipped with Cyber End Dragon, so even the requirements for playing your new boss monster are flexible!

And More! With the new Spell Card Cybernetic Horizon, both strategies can fuse with no malfunctions! This card allows you to add a Dragon or Machine “Cyber” monster to your hand and fill your GY with Cyber Dragon or Machine monsters necessary for Overload Fusion! Reach for the horizon and grasp your victory.

Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles

Fish Kill side ad

The second piece of an ancient legend stands before you! The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles builds (literally!) on the foundation of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories, featuring the middle section of the mysterious Pharaonic tablet discovered in Egypt! (Most Duelists never noticed, but the 2020 tins, and now the 2021 tins, have embossed/debossed sides, and rimless lids that fit flush with the tin body, allowing the tins to be stacked on top of each other to build the entire Pharaonic tablet once all three pieces have been assembled!) The eternal clash between the spirits of the Dark Magician and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon are immortalized in this carving, along with 3 brand-new World Premiere cards to give these monsters a new power boost. Like the 2020 Tin, each 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles will contain 3 extra-large Mega-Packs, each with 1 Prismatic Secret Rare, 2 Ultra Rares, 2 Super Rares, 1 Rare, and 12 Commons!

We open up the tin and what’s inside and you can get a chance to see what you might get!
