Digimon Card Battle is back with episode 60!

For the New Year, they are splitting into different teams than normal. Each team will feature 4 players, and the winners will get a special New Year's gift.


As for the 9th member of Card Battle...

To even out the numbers, Hideyoshi will be sitting out and doing commentary. Joining him will be his show partner from Fun Digica, Miyano.




Cards are up to date with Booster EX-02.

The match this time is Ryota vs. Chiba.






Also after the match give us out first larger card previews for Booster Set 9 X Record during the post match housekeeping (going over products, etc.)

We get a preview of Dukemon X and option card X-Antibody!

Getting Dukemon X and the X-Antibody itself so early feels a bit extra special, while also working as a nice handoff from the recent Tamers booster.

Both get great art, but it also feels like they are hiding As'maria from us, and when it comes to X-Antibody, you always wanna see As'maria art.


Shortly after the episode better quality versions (with sample text) of both was put up by the Digimon Card Twitter. Both versions are included above. Especially helpful for Dukemon, who seemed to have scaling issues on the show.

If that x antibody card really can evolve you to any x Digimon then that's pretty over powered but also lots of options like you could go directly from Agumon to omnimon x in one move. Or from omnimon x to Agumon x as a joke

pretty sure its restricted to things that would normally evolve off it. Like Gallant with the x antibody option would be able to evolve into its x variant or say omni X when it attacks as thery both can evolve off it, but some random green lvl3 wouldnt be able to turn into that
plus warping to omni X on turn 2 without any drawbacks would be a bit ridiculous

Yeah, it doesn't say ignoring level, color, or anything else. It's similar to Hisyaryumon's [Your Turn] ability in that regard. The fact that you activate the ability when attacking means that you can potentially evolve and get the attack even if the evolution would have ended your turn, which is still pretty strong for a 0 cost option that does also preserve your sources.
The security effect is also not bad to be honest.

I know some people don't like X-Antibody Digimon, and I also prefer the normal versions usually. That being said, they haven't been illustrated that much, so I'm still looking forward to see the new artworks. This Gallantmon X looks fire and the X-Antibody card is pretty awesome too!

X Antibody will always have mixed reactions. Most of the time because of the designs. So if I can hope for something, I just want them to be illustrated very very well in this booster. This new TCG is very good in delivering a lot of great artworks in many styles. So yeah.

when it comes to X-Antibody, you always wanna see As'maria art.
Goodness no. Honestly the best thing that can happen to most X-antibody mons is to be drawn by people outside their original artists. The original As'maria designs from 2003 aren't too egregious either way, but I definitely would want to see the more recent x-garbage drawn by other people. Tonamikanji even got the Kizuna forms to look kinda ok a few sets back, so there is some hope.
Even this sasasi art looks better than anything As'maria has done for the card game so far. imo they should keep it up.

Gallantmon X-Antibody
[You may digivolve this card from [Gallantmon] for 1 memory]
[When Digivolving] Delete 1 of your opponent's Digimon with the lowest DP. If you did not delete a Digimon with this effect, unsuspend this Digimon.
[Your Turn] (Once per turn) When your opponent's Digimon is deleted, if this Digimon has [Gallantmon] or [X-Antibody] in its digivolution cards, trash the top card of your opponent's security cards.

X-Antibody
If you have a Digimon in play, you may play this card from your hand while ignoring its color requirements.
[Main] Place this card as the bottom digivolution card of one of your Digimon that does not have any digivolution cards with [X-Antibody] in their traits.
[Security] Gain 1 memory and add this card to your hand.
[Inherited Effects]:
[All Turns] Cards named [X-Antibody] cannot be trashed from this Digimon's digivolution cards by card effects.
[When Attacking] You may digivolve this Digimon into a Digimon in your hand with [X-Antibody] in its traits by paying its digivolution cost.

Its kinda annoying the X-antibody card is kinda useless on Natural Carriers because everything in their line has X-antibody.

well giving a natural carrier the X antibody in real life wouldn't do anything

Surprised Sasasi artist can draw X antibody digimon pretty good.

X-Antibody option card, that background... Alphamon right?

Second this.
I hope it's not As'maria to draw most of the digimon he designed. I hope it's Sasasi, Nakano Haito, Tonamikanji, Naochika Morishita, or other artists who can make the super busy designed digimon to look more eye pleasing.

I hold that the reason most of the original wave of X Digimon look like shit is that they all got really, really bad profile art outside a few notable standouts, because most of them look better in other art, and I would love to be proven correct by this game.

Thanks for explaining how it works guys, glad to see it's not ridiculously over powered. I feel like something like that should've been explained on the card itself

You're not wrong.
I don't doubt even abominations like Tobucatmon could look passable drawn by capable hands.

Tobucatmon is obvious, it has one of the worst profile arts there is, and it looks fine drawn outside that. But I'm talking about shit like Greymon X, Guilmon X and Growmon X, and Seadramon X, things that just have goddamn awkward looking proportions in their profile art or don't even look like actual living creatures because they have no shading at all.

The really, really early profile art I think has borders that are too thick for a number of Digimon, but they still look good generally, and by the early 2000s most things had pretty solid profile art. But around 2003-2004ish there was a lot of really bad profile art, and that includes the entire initial X run because that run was from 2003.

Re:Digitalize X Antibody ones are the best designs and one Beelzebumon X art in Crusader/Collectors.

So the old arts on official profiles will never be removed for all eternity... Pity.
