Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG: Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts is Out July 2020

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game

It’s a Yu-Gi-Oh! GX fan’s greatest dream come true! After years of needing their own individual Decks to survive, the three Sacred Beasts have been united under a single banner in Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts!

Unification!

Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts includes more ways than ever to Summon the three Sacred Beasts! Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder and Uria, Lord of Searing Flames each receive cards that modify their Summoning requirements to make them easier to fulfill and help you mount a second or third strike if the first isn’t enough. Alternatively, you can skip those requirements altogether with a new monster that can be Tributed to Summon any of the three Sacred Beasts from your hand and then banished from the Graveyard to add the dominating Fallen Paradise Field Spell to your hand!

Exaltation!

In addition to increasing your access to the Sacred Beasts and your ability to Summon them, Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts also increases the dominance of Sacred Beasts once they reach the field! You’ll be able to double Raviel, Lord of Phantasms ATK to 8000 and crush all your opponent’s monsters in a single Battle Phase, negateyour opponent’s Spell/Trap effects while you control Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder in Attack Position, and do a little creative accounting to power up Uria, Lord of Searing Flames far beyond its natural limitations.

Complete Domination!

Of course, it’s not enough to just command multiple Sacred Beasts throughout the course of a Duel. The truest form of Dueling dominance is to control multiple Sacred Beasts at the same time, and Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts rewards you for doing so! Control 2 or more at the same time, and a brand-new Trap Card will negate the activated effects of every monster your opponent controls.

Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts contains 46 cards total (44-card Main Deck, 2-card Extra Deck) as well as 2 different Token Cards:

5 Ultra Rares
3 Super Rares
38 Commons
2 Token Cards
1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide

The Age Limit for Yu-Gi-Oh! Dragon Duel Tournaments Changes

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game has announced that the age limit for Dragon Duel tournaments will be changing!

Duelists born in 2006 or later (previously 2007) will now be eligible to compete in Dragon Duel tournaments for the 2019-2020 tournament season, starting this weekend August 16-18, 2019 at the Ultimate Duelist Series – 2019 Summer Invitational in Indianapolis, IN.

Dragon Duels are tournaments for children born after a certain year during a tournament season. Judges and staff members at Dragon Duel tournaments are accustomed to working with younger players, and children Duel with other children, rather than with older teens and adults. By increasing the age limit another year, we hope to continue providing a fun and entertaining tournament experience for younger Duelists.

Duelists participating in Dragon Duel events have a chance to win several unique prizes, such as prize cards, medals, game mats, and t-shirts, along with invitations to participate in their country’s Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. Dragon Duel tournaments are usually run at larger events such as Regional Qualifiers and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events.
