Some card game updates...


First up, an update on the new card sleeves we found out about recently.

They're sold out now, but we have some more details on them. The sold out listing HLJ had before was actually for one of the four new sleeve sets at random.

HLJ has put up a new listing that gets you sets of all 4 new card sleeves (buying from the link helps the site!) It's $22.24 and comes out in December.


On top of that...


Episode 43 of Fun Digica just went up!

This episode continues the 'Monochrome Tournament', a series of battles where Cody and Hideyoshi will use single color decks to decide what the strongest color in the Digimon Card Game is. After the match they give us some new card previews of Booster Set 3 Union Impact!




This time it is the semi-finals, with green vs. yellow!



A few screenshots.





Plus, the card previews from this episode!



The previews this time are a new Angemon card, plus Valkyrimon!

Angemon gets an image with a real 'angel descending from the heavens' vibe to it, and Valkyrimon gets some nice artwork that shows him in what appears to be the midst of doing multiple attacks at once, along with multiple interesting light effects (not completely dissimilar from lightening effects on the Angemon cards.)

Hopefully this means we will be getting a bunch more card previews sooner rather than later.

Booster Set 3 Union Impact comes out in October. We got our first extended look at it in a recent issue of V-Jump, plus recently got a clean look at the booster pack packaging.

Pre-orders for the Green, Purple, and Black starter decks have opened. They are out in November.

So they DID give valkyrimon to silphymon! Now i wonder what they are giving Shakkoumon. Another SlashAngemon maybe?

Digivolution source deletion and a more controlled volcanicdramon play effect (cept single target and on digivolution and attack instead)

That or Lampmon.
Or Vikemon. That Angemon card is blue which would lead to Vikemon. Guess shakoumon can come from blue/yellow and will prob be blue too unless they make a yellow Vikemon

Angemon as blue and ankylomon as yellow would be a really weird role reversal but we're already half way there.

That Angemon card being blue means Monmon now has a link to Makuramon.

Aw yeah, another win for the Green Deck. Even Hideyoshi's wall of grade schoolers could do little to stop Cody's rush of low level 'mons strategy. A shame that GranKuwagamon got taken out almost immediately by Glorious Burst, but it taught Cody a valuable lesson about the Raising Area being immune to card effects which protected Kabuterimon for the final attack.

In regards to the Union Impact reveals. Angemon in Blue is okay I guess, but Valkyrimon in Red surprised me. Guess they're favouring the 02 half of the Jogress'?

Wow! I expected the ShineGreymon deck to make it to the finals.

Goes to show you can achieve a lot by sacrificing low level Digimon to break security rather than waiting for stronger cards. I love using Rookie spam to overwhelm opponents.

The yellow player does not prioritize destroying security from the get go, which is evident in all of their losses using that color.

Red for Valkrimon and Blue for Angemon? The former is obviously for evolutionary purposes, but neither of them really fits the established themes. No idea why they made Angemon blue yet.

It continues to confuse me as they still give odd colors to those ones.... I get it for the sake of their certain evolution forms to connect. But it still didn't explain why...

Both artworks sure have graceful aura.

Personal guess, they plan on making ankylomon yellow and make a new yellow armadillomon (BT1 has a blue one but there’s no ankylomon in that set) in this set then making a blue ankylomon in the next.

I’m expecting to now see a blue patamon in this set as well.

I think it may just be so that there’s a bit more of an option for people who like certain Digimon but aren’t so keen on the colour of the deck they’re designated?

Patamon is a mammal and we have two Angemon in yellow already. They probably want Cody/Iori to be the yellow Tamer and the Armadillomon line in yellow so it works for what it is. At the end of the day, it means the popular Angemon line can be playable in different deck types, played with Shakkoumon, and there already are some yellow Angemon that can be used with Shakkoumon such as ST3 Angemon.

Personally, I've been advocating for years to have ClavisAngemon as the new Mega for Shakkoumon. I don't HATE SlashAngemon for Shakkoumon, but I also prefer the Kotemon-line keeps it. Plus I think ClavisAngemon fits Shakkoumon a little better.

If you just mean the total number of cards, BT1 had 115, BT2 and now BT3 have 112, and BT4 seemingly has 115 but I'd wait for Bandai themselves to announce it before you take that last part as a fact.

!! I hadn't checked With The Will yet today, Valkyrimon makes me so happy! I am so making a Red + Yellow deck! I'm gonna go find what the translations are

Valkyrimon
[When Digivolved] delete 1 of your opponent's Digimon with 4000 DP or less
[When Attacking] delete 1 of your opponent's Digimon with 4000 DP or less

Angemon
[Inherited Effect] [When Attacking] discard 1 Digivolution Source from the bottom of 1 of your opponent's Digimon


Valkyrimon in a Yellow deck means that it won't be uncommon for high level Digimon, even level 7s, to be at only 4000 DP giving you a lot of deletions. Valkyrimon also gives you a deletion on a level 4 or less if it Digivolves from a Silphymon that you also Digivolved that turn (Silphymon has [When Digivolved] 1 of your opponent's Lv. 4 or lower Digimon's DP becomes 1000 until the end of turn), however Silphymon is going to have much better combos than this such as Mistymon, ShineGreymon, SlashAngemon, and a few option cards

Angemon combos very well with Shakkoumon when it evolves into Shakkoumon, who has "[Opponent's Turn] all of your opponent's Digimon with no Digivolution Sources get <Security Attack -1>" and now has it so Shakkoumon is dicarding evolution sources every time it attacks. However, Angemon just combos well with all the blue cards you'll find in starter deck Cocytus Blue and the 1st Digimon booster New Evolution as a whole.

tl;dr Both of these cards are super good if you're playing a yellow deck or a blue deck

Well, Valkyriemon was to be expected given Silphymon. It would be nice to keep Vikemon to continue the duology those two have, but lord only knows what they'll do.
