New card previews from the Digimon Card Game!

The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with more card previews from Booster Set 3 Union Impact. This time it's Bastemon and Goddramon.

Bastemon's art has her doing her favorite activity, lounging. Goddramon has him using his special move, Shoukan, using the power of 2 dragons sealed within it's arms.



But we have more previews!



From the first episode of DigiNavi headline news we get nice (if small) looks at Imperialdramon, Paildramon, and a brand new Mimi card!

We've seen the art before minus the Mimi card, which has nice anime style artwork.


And yet more!




From Hong Kong comic magazine 'Lucky', we have our first look at art for Imperialdramon (Black), plus a pretty good look at a BanchoStingmon card.

Will go over the art when we get more formal previews, but both look quite nice.


Thanks to digicaplayer for the magazine heads up and a whatsapp card group for the images.



A small stack of good looking cards, a good chunk of which we didn't know about until now!



Digimon Card Game Booster Set 3 Union Impact is scheduled to release on October 30th.

My boy BanchoStingmon is here already :D

Whoever is choosing the Digimon to add to the TCG, he/she is doing an excellent job!!!

Black Imperialdramon is an unexpected choice, but I guess if Gururumon can make it, so can it.

Black Imperialdramon is back! Fuck yes it's one of my favorite recolors and it's been over a decade. Now if only we can get the even rarer Fighter Mode version...

Goddramon
[Your turn] [Once per turn] if you Play another Digimon, this Digimon becomes Active

Bancho Stingmon
<Piercing>
[When Attacking] if this Digimon attacks your opponent's Digimon with 12,000 DP or more, this Digimon gets +7,000 DP and <Security Attack+2> until the end of this turn

hell yeah Bancho, frick them up!!! (the Banchos are my favorites)

Mimi Tachikawa
[Every Players' Turn] if you or your opponent play an Option card, by resting this card, get +1 Memory

why is Mimi in Purple??

not sure if I posted these translations already -

Paildramon
[Inherited Effect] [When Attacking] (Once Per Turn) if this card's name contains "Imperialdramon", this Digimon becomes active

Imperialdramon (normal, not the black one)
if this card evolves from a Digimon named "Paildramon" or "Dinobeemon", reduce the evolution cost by 2 Memory
<Jamming>
[When Digivolved] all of your Digimon with <Jamming> become active

Man, I keep forgetting that Bastemon isn't actually a XW Digimon since I haven't played many of the old video games. Having Mimi in Purple isn't super surprising since we recently had Joe in Black but it does make me wonder if they'll have any associated Digimon with them.

Since the D-Brigade appeared it only makes sense that a Bancho Digimon wasn't far behind - complete with "Bancho" being another Group as well. Not much to say about the others except Black Imperialdramon is a welcome addition.

Bastemon's background sure have sweet scenery and relaxing. But wow I almost mistaken Imperialdramon as Imperialdramon X when I first saw his pic! To think he actually made second appearance!

BantyoStingmon hell yeah but need big image to see the whole face. But wow that effect is basically that Injection Angel Lily of Yugioh's! I thought I'm disappointed with how they gave him weak DP power but glad to see badass banchos won't fall down easy to other groups!

Look like Imperialdramon and Paildramon's cards are references to their evo transformations. So... Dinobeemon holding the cable claws left us in dark... :/

Hmm Mimi in purple... There are not any fairy or plant digimons in purple eh?

It is to my understanding that Imperialdramon (Black) is a bit of an icon for Hyper Colosseum because it was so strong when it was printed back then. Makes sense to bring the legend back.

(Also, hell yes Banchos!)

Best not to think about it too hard, plus just having Dinobeemon in general is an accomplishment in itself. đź’Ş

Hmm good... Point. After all Dinobeemon is too savage to be left in forgotten!

Goddramon's artwork, I really, really love this badass art. Look like he gotten so much appearances. God Fists are all I live to see for!

I can't get over how good Bancho Stingmon is, I've been thinking about him all day. An ability that tempirarily gives him DP higher than the highest DP in the game (Omegamon @ 15,000) and every deletion he takes granting you 3 Security checks!? Yeah he's situational and a glass cannon but that's just to balance him being god tier at what he does. I have never been interested in making a Green deck but now I want to just for this card

Banchostingmon finally having an alternative official art, It was like 6 years? With just the bandai one.
Bastemon being blue.. its Bastemon > Duftmon 🤔 i used to dislike the idea but this booster Duftmon card looks pretty feminine and i actually really like It, feminine Duftmon is my canon Duftmon now and good to find a Bastemon ultimate since Chohakkai fits very well to Minerva.

Why do I get the funny feeling that's going to be super-effective against Darkdramon... :ROFLMAO:

Also interesting that the DCG is apparently dropping the whole "BAN-TYO" Engrish spelling it seems and going with a more standard "Bancho" for the Group Classification. :unsure:

@Rohan I kind of made this up but I always headcanoned "BAN-TYO" as a mashup for "Bandai Tokyo"

why is Mimi in Purple??
Plot twist: Mimi is the true villain of Adventure 2020!

I wish the card game was as equal-opportunity with its Tamers cards as it is with its Digimon. Maybe that will improve if the game survives the current anime.

Speaking of Purple!Mimi, I understand Black!Taichi and Purple!Yamato because their partner Digimon were also in those colours but if we don't get Purple!Palmon (or at least Alraumon) and Black!Gomamon then I'll consider the new Mimi/Joe to be a bit of wasted slots when we could have gotten say either Kaiser!Ken or Oikawa as a Purple Tamer. :(

those exclamation points really threw me off on what you were trying to say for a fat moment

I'm just realizing, this Mimi's effect is most synergistic with Lilimon. It most likely means nothing but that's interesting

It was an opponent-side only omninegate essentially. Its main weakness was that if its own effect was negated it could be stopped by Options, but... like, that's true of anything. It was also useful because Black Imperialdramon came from Dinobeemon, which could be jogressed from a number of Wormmon Armors - meaning it bypassed Dark Tower and destroyed it on the way.

I can't get over how good Bancho Stingmon is, I've been thinking about him all day.

Here's a fun thought - Banchoustingmon, if its effect procs and you have a way to unrest it, cleaves your opponents entire Security in two hits.

Dimension Scissor:
During this turn, 1 of your Digimon gets the effect “When this Digimon destroys your opponent’s Digimon by battle, make that Digimon active"

this is a 3 cost common rarity card from the first booster and it does not say once per turn. This + Flower Cannon (2 cost, its only effect is resting an opponent’s Digimon) are Bancho Stingmon's burst mode
