Digimon Card Battle is back with episode 7.


This episode begins with various bits of card talk (and they do a lot after the match), as normal. A lot of going over the new starter decks with them only being a week way.


This time we get 2 different matches with a number of people who appear on Card Battle on a regular basis. This match includes cards from Starter Decks, 4, 5, and 6 mixed in, so if you watch the matches you'll see a few upcoming cards...


Everyone shows some of their key cards before their matches.

The first match features Makuro against host Yuki Iwa

The second match features host Hikaru against Hideyoshi from Fun Digica.




And after the match we get a preview of a new card...



With the new starter decks out in a week, they are moving on from previews of those to showing off Booster Set 4.

It's Plutomon! Not a Digimon who shows up that much, he looks quite fantastic here. Uniquely, he's colored blue instead of black, as he normally is (I can't recall if I've ever seen him colored blue.)



Previous Card previews for Starter Decks 4, 5, and 6:
Previous card previews for Booster Set 4:



Booster Set 3 Union Impact is out and we have the full card list right here!

We've also recently gotten details for Booster Set 4 Great Legend, coming in December.

Pre-orders for the Green, Purple, and Black starter decks have opened. They are out in November. And we recently got our first images of the decks.

Plutomon
[When Digivolving] <Draw 2> then Play 1 Purple Option card with a Play cost of 6 or below from your hand without paying its cost

AH as an Olympos XII fan I am so happy to see Plutomon! He's such an interesting antagonist. I wonder if every booster set will have an Olympos XII?

I see it's Cerberumon WereWolf Mode and Anubismon behind Plutomon! DOGGIES

Surprised to Plutomon's shoulders have the tongue... Always thought it's only dog shaped shoulder armor pads. So it does mean all "teeth" on Plutomon are very alive?

I don't think he's colored blue. It's just the lighting giving that impression.

I'm also surprised with the shoulder tongue, but him having two extra mouths is a nice throwback to Cerberumon.

sasasi does basically what I'd do if I made card art, and I appreciate them more because of it~
Me too. I love all new artworks in cards and Sasasi's work is one of my favorites.

Look at that Anubimon's face, how cute.

Hopefully this gets him into the DRB but I guess that didn't help Ceresmon.

Sasai really likes Illiad.

And it looks black to me

aw, Hikaru apologized somewhat profusely in a Tweet for accidentally evolving Hercules Kabuterimon for 3 memory instead of 4.
I knew about the shoulder mouths but I never realized that that is a throwback to Cerberusmon! Plutomon being deliberately designed as the final stage for Cerberusmon like Titamon is for Ogremon makes me pretty happy.
I also didn't know Plutomon isn't in the reference book. I realized last night that Sunmon and Moonmon aren't in the reference book as well

I don't normally like the Olympus XII (or related Digimon in this case) but I make an exception for the awesomeness that is Plutomon. Loving the fact that Cerberusmon: Werewolf Mode is being used as the previous step as he's so cool. :love:

With both Lilithmon and now Plutomon, using Option Cards seems to be Purple's other niche now. :unsure:

I didn’t recognize Cerberumon Werewolf Mode at first. Looked like AeroV-dramon, which would be really random.

I always love seeing the new art. The Floramon card where it is having a tea party with a Blossomon is very cute.

Looks more like it's the lighting that makes him look blue.

On that note...

OLYMPOS REPRESENTATION. YES BABY.

It's just a coloring technique. Pure monochromatic grey and black can be very unappealing visually. Blue is commonly used as a sheen for black to represent a glossy texture.

You can commonly see it in American comics. Batman's black mask and cape have a blue tint. Wonder Woman has streaks of blue in her black hair. etc. etc.

First things first, just gonna say that I love that Plutomon got in. It's my preferred Ultimate Stage for the two Cerberusmons compared to Anubismon, but it doesn't get much representation, so I was kinda expecting to have to wait awhile before he showed up. Hoping we get more of his line in Purple and he isn't just an offshoot Lv6, since if there was anything that'd get me to play a Purple Option Deck, it'd be getting to use Dobermon and friends in it.

Anyways, this was a fun match. I'll admit that I was partially there because we got new Starter Deck cards revealed, (and on that note, it's really nice that we know what every single card in the Wave 2 Starter Decks do now, but I'm not gonna go over that in this post since it'd be obnoxious with this many cards) but these matches did kinda make me reconsider other cards that I had initially written off to be honest. Notably, I was surprised at how well MetalGreymon (Virus) performed for Black, he was getting a ton of value out of those even if he wasn't able to win in the end. Now granted, this is an environment where Boosters aren't allowed so maybe Andromon is still better in general, but it at least made me go and think "Okay yeah, I want to experiment with this". Want to try using it with BlitzGreymon from Union Impact, since it can also evolve from Black, and giving it Blocker via MetalGreymon or the Megadramon from the Starter Decks sounds really nasty on top of its Devolve 2 Effect.

it also helps that Sasasi has every source of light be blue.
Cards seems to be Purple's other niche now. :unsure:
I really like seeing the colors define their identities more and more! I think so far it's?
Red: hard removal, DP boosting, extra Security checking
Blue: evolution source removal and manipulation, card advantage, board manipulation, extra effeciency in Memory gain (a few colors have this but in Blue it's more pronounced)
Yellow: DP reduction, Security manipulation, stalling, extra value from Tamer cards
Green: Suspend, fast evolution, Breeding Area acceleration
Purple: Trash manipulation, high risk high reward plays, extra value from Option cards
Black: Reboot, Blocker, De-Digivolve

Personally I think Black should invest into token generation as a color defining mechanic outside of Diaboromon

That isn't what is being done here. Using blue to add definition to black is common.

In the case of this card, blue is the main color, which is having definition added to it by lighting and shadow. It continues to elements like the tail. There is nothing shown in the image to suggest the character is black with blue highlighting for detail.

I have the feeling that the aggressive side of Green is receiving more and more support. I mean, beside the fast evolution/suspending strategy, there are cards like Bancho Stingmon, other powerful piercing Digimon, and now even Palmon, Togemon, and Atlur Kabuterimon from the new starter deck which seem more like "red-oriented" cards to me

I'm not saying it's black with blue highlighting. I'm saying that the blue itself is representing black.

Case in point, my example of Batman. In many of his comic depictions, his mask is clearly blue with some heavy shadows, but everyone knows it's "meant" to be completely black.

Sasasi just likes adding some degree of chromaticity to his blacks and shadows. You can even see on the card itself that the shading on the yellow portions of Plutomon have a very blue/green tint. He's drawn a "blue" Alphamon before too.

To be fair, Green has always been the designated "Combat Color" if you ask me. Maybe not the extent of overall aggression and destruction as Red, but Green preying off the Suspended state in general, aka the state where you're actually allowed to attack a Digimon, faster evolution so you can get to your bigger bodies faster, being the only other color besides Red to have Piercing, etc. There's also other examples like RustTyrannomon just completely ignoring the rules and being able to attack Unsuspended Digimon. Like, Green deals with most threats in Combat very specifically, since unlike something like Red, their "spot removal" cards tend to be somewhat weaker compared to equivalents in other colors.

Anyways, I'm overall happy with that as a concept. It's good to see several different approaches within the same color, I like that you can do different things within Green. You can go a more control-route with stuff like Puppetmon and MegaGargomon, you can go a more aggressive route with the variety of combat-focused cards they have, etc. Same reason I like that Purple is getting alot of support towards that Hyper Option Card build, it's just nice to see variety rather then a color only having one particular theme.
