Dragons rule in LEGACY OF DESTRUCTION for YU-GI-OH! GCC and additional news

let’s talk about Yu-Gi-Oh! There’s some Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game news I neglected to share, and Konami was kind enough to send a box of them Legacy of destruction to make me open.

First, the news. Konami announced it in March The forbidden infinite, a new booster set launching in July. The pack will contain new cards for Exodia fans, including a new Fusion monster that can gain a lot of attack points, has a free Spell/Trap negate apparently, and will search for Exodia Spell/Trap cards for you.

There will also be a new theme involving “tablet” monsters that play as Spell cards and then Special Summon via Life Points. Basically, a Crystal Beast in reverse, but the idea harks back to the Ancient Egyptian duels that fans saw in the Duel Monsters anime.

This theme will have a Spell card that will allow you to Special Summon without paying Life Points and will be used to summon the new Exodia Fusion. It seems like a maybe fun gimmick deck, but I wouldn’t expect to see it much at tournaments.

There will be 100 new cards and one “special card” that will only be available as a Quarter Century Secret Rare for a total of 101. The forbidden infinite will release on July 17 and will include nine cards per pack (MSRP: $4.49) with the following rarity breakdown:

  • 10 secret rares

  • 14 Ultra Rares

  • 26 Super Rares

  • 50 Municipalities

  • 24 of these cards will also be available as Quarter-Century Secret Rares in addition to the aforementioned “special card”

Secondly, the team revealed more information for the 2024 can. The 25th Anniversary Box: Dueling Mirrors will be released on September 20th with an MSRP of $21.99. Inside you will find 3 Mega-Packs with a guaranteed Quarter-Century Secret Rare in each pack. I’m not going to lie, the box looks classy with Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba back to back so on the silver. It’s clean! Unfortunately, the box will contain 400 cards, which means it’s very bloated, but what’s new? That said, each Mega-Pack will contain 1 Quarter Century Secret Rare, 1 Prismatic Secret Rare, 3 Ultra Rares, and 8 Commons (3/3/9/24 per box). The cards will come from “a dozen recent booster sets” as The era of the Overlord, Defenders Extraordinaire, Access the Cyberstorm, Duelist Nexus, Labyrinth of Memories, Photonic Hyernova, Power of the Elements, Savage Survivorsand more. There will also be new cards with alternate art for Dark Magician Girl, Harpie Duster, Raigeki, and Red-Eyes Black Dragon. The press release mentions that the 16 cards featured on the sides of the boxes will be Secret Quarter Century Rares, and that there are an additional 34 cards included in the Quarter Century Secret Rare pool. Unfortunately we weren’t shown the sides of the box, so we don’t know what cards to expect. Personally I think the Diabellstar the Black Witch and Snake-Eyes cards are strong contenders as is S:P LIttle Knight (shit, those reprints are going to be a blessing!). What other cards do you expect to find in that slot?

The other news concerns the 2024 World Championship. To celebrate its hospitality in the United States this year, the Yu-Gi-Oh! The TCG team is releasing a commemorative playmat and card case set featuring the prize card, Grandopolis, the Eternal City of Gold, from when the World Championship was held in Las Vegas in 2013. These accessories will be available exclusively in original tournament stores starting September 7th. and costs $16.99 for the play mat and $9.99 for the pack of 100 sleeves.

Now let’s get to the really fun part. Konami was kind enough to send me a box of the new one Legacy of destruction set of main upgrades. This set contains a lot of things that I think duelists will be playing with for a couple of months. First, there’s more support for Snake-Eyes/Sinful Spoils/Diabellstar. There is also the new Ragnarika archetype which uses Insect, Plant and Reptile type monsters to enter Link games. In addition, there are Shining Sarcophogas cards which are inspired by famous Yugi cards such as Gandora, Silent Magician and Silent Swordsman. There are other new cards for various archetypes like Gold Pride and Ancient Gear, but the ones that catch the most attention are the Tenpai Dragon/Sangen cards. These Dragons do everything in the Battle Phase and I know some people are already tired of seeing them. To be fair, they are relatively affordable, most of the pieces are Common and the most expensive card in the set is Tenpai Dragon Paidra at around $20. There is Trident Dragion which many use in the deck and it costs over $100 right now , but hopefully a reprint will come Rarities Collection II? Overall, I think this set will keep people cooking for a while. Tenpai Dragon are the obvious first winners, but I wouldn’t be surprised if something else comes along Legacy of destruction. You can purchase your Legacy of Destruction packs now with an MSRP of $4.49 and the following rarity breakdown:

  • 10 secret rares

  • 14 Ultra Rares

  • 26 Super Rares

  • 50 Municipalities

  • 24 of these cards will also be available as Quarter-Century Secret Rares as well as a “special card” available only in this rarity.
