Unleash Your Phantom Rage in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game this November

Yu-Gi-Oh! Phantom Rage

Ghosts from the past return to the fray in November’s Phantom Rage booster set! Arriving November 6, 2020Phantom Rage (SRP: $2.99) brings new Phantom Knight and Raidraptor cards that can be played in their own decks, but you can also create your own hybrid deck that takes the best of each theme to max out your Xyz Summoning power.

Phantom Rage doesn’t just remaster popular themes from the past, it unites them as well. You can find new Phantom Knight and Raidraptor cards, but you can also find new cards that are Phantom Knights AND Raidraptors!

The new theme based on Fusion Summoning excels at performing consecutive Fusion Summons. Normally, to Fusion Summon you need to use a Spell Card for each Fusion Summon you perform along with multiple separate cards to use as materials, but this brand-new theme is anchored by a powerful Spell Card that Summons up to 5 Tokens you can use for Fusion Summoning…and then lets you Fusion Summon twice consecutively!

What else can you expect from Phantom Rage? How about…

  • 17 World Premiere cards, the most ever in a single booster set!
  • The long awaited crossover between “U.A.” and “F.A.”!
  • New Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link Monsters!
  • More cards to enhance strategies introduced in Rise of the Duelist!
  • And more!

The Phantom Rage booster set contains 100 new cards:

  • 50 Commons
  • 26 Super Rares
  • 14 Ultra Rares
  • 10 Secret Rares

Along with a lineup of classic crowd-pleasers, Toon Chaos includes 3 new Chaos monsters like The Chaos Creator. It’s a new addition to the LIGHT and DARK arsenal that Special Summons a banished monster, while returning other banished monsters to your Deck.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Legendary Duelists Season 1

From there, it’s time for Legendary Duelists to make their return…with some new color! Legendary Duelists and Legendary Duelists: Ancient Millennium were massive hits that ushered in a new era of retro releases, and now they’re back by popular demand. Hard-to-find cards like Millennium-Eyes Restrict and Red-Eyes Slash Dragon will be available in Legendary Duelists: Season 1 along with more than 100 other cards. It’s a huge opportunity for Duelists and collectors alike, but even diehard fans are in for some big surprises.

Each box of Legendary Duelists: Season 1 will come with 1 of 7 Secret Rares that weren’t part of the previous sets, selected from the series’ biggest hits. Every box will also have 2 Legendary Duelists: Season 1 packs, each with 18 cards: total 15 Commons and 3 Ultra Rares. One of them will be a standard Ultra Rare with gold lettering. But the other two will be colorful Ultra Rares, each appearing with blue, green or purple foil lettering! 16 Ultra Rare cards can appear in any of the three colors, so you can match your cards to your sleeves and card case, or just play your favorite color to add a little customization to your Deck.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts

Then it’s a throwback to a past that never was! Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts revives the three Sacred Beasts from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX all in one Deck, uniting them in a single strategy. New support lets you double the power of Raviel, Lord of Phantasms to a towering 8000 Attack Points, negate your opponent’s effects with the power of Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder, and power up Uria, Lord of Searing Flames with new Trap Cards.

Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts also comes with cards that can power up any Deck: One for One is an incredible card to use for combo strategies; Terraforming and Set Rotation make your Field Spells more reliable; Mystical Space Typhoon is the “original” Spell and Trap destroyer; and Pot of Desires can make almost any Deck more consistent. Whether you’re looking to tap into dark new powers or load up on tournament mainstays, this new Structure Deck can give you an edge.

Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts erupts from the shadows of Duel Academy on July 10, and each Structure Deck comes with 1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide and 48 cards total: 38 Commons, 3 Super Rares, 5 Ultra Rares and 2 Token Cards. MSRP: $9.99 per box.


And last but not least, the mighty Battles of Legend series is back with brand-new twists! Battles of Legend: Armageddon is filled with powerful cards like Artifact Sanctum and Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon, popular themed cards like Madolche Anjelly and Black Whirlwind, plus drool-worthy foil upgrades of popular tournament cards like Mecha Phantom Beast O-Lion and Dragon Buster Destruction Sword.

So what’s new? For almost two years, Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon was only available as an exclusive Championship Prize Card, awarded solely to the most proven Duelists in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series. But now it’s back, and for the people! You’ll also find iconic Dragon monsters like Trishula, the Dragon of Icy ImprisonmentDark Armed, the Dragon of Annihilation and Judgment, the Dragon of Heaven. Fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX will also get their first chance to collect Jim Cook’s “Fossil” cards, a unique Fusion strategy that digs Fusion Spell Cards out of the Graveyard to use them again and again, unleashing a Level 8 dual-attacking behemoth!

The all-foil Battles of Legend: Armageddon debuts on July 24. The complete set comes with 92 cards: 59 Ultra Rares and 33 Secret Rares. MSRP: $3.99 per 5-card pack.

It’s Rise of the Duelist for Yu-Gi-Oh! in August

Yu-Gi-Oh! Rise of the Duelist

Rise of the Duelist is set to dispel the dog days of Summer for Yu-Gi-Oh! fans on August 7th, 2020!

Yugi’s Gaia the Dragon Champion strategy has been remastered for the modern age! Classic cards like Gaia the Fierce Knight, Catapult Turtle, and more take on new forms in service of a new form of Gaia the Dragon Champion that stacks an extra 2600 ATK on to itself every time it wins a battle and can expend exactly that much ATK to destroy any card on the field without a fight!

New Noble Knights rise from the pages of history! The “Infernoble Knights” are a fast Synchro Summoning strategy that burns through their Equip Spells for immediate benefits, then brings them back to the field and dares the opponent to destroy the monster they’re equipped to. “Infernoble Knight” monsters are also “Noble Knight” monsters, so you can use existing cards like Heritage of the Chalice to make your Deck even stronger! Don’t forget Infernoble Knight – Renaud and Infernoble Knight – Roland from Toon Chaos – you’ll need them if you want to maximize your firepower.

Many powerful Spell and Trap Cards! Unleash a new “Forbidden” Quick-Play Spell that can negate the effects of and halve the ATK of an entire field’s worth of monsters or a Normal Spell that lets you retaliate against your opponent’s disruptive monster effects by choosing from the effects of Pot of Greed, Change of Heart, or The Forceful Sentry.

On top of all that, you can even find:

  • A powerful new “Chaos” Synchro Monster
  • A brand-new anti-Extra Deck Spellcaster theme
  • New cards for the “Rikka” and “Adamancipator” themes from Secret Slayers
  • New cards for the “Mathmech” and “Dragonmaid” themes from Mystic Fighters
  • 20 previously unavailable cards from overseas promotions, pack-ins, and more!

 The Rise of the Duelist booster set contains 100 new cards: 50 Commons
26 Super Rares
14 Ultra Rares
10 Secret Rares
