Digimon Card Battle is back with episode 83!

Iwai continues testing out the decks he was shown, before choosing a new deck for himself.




He will be playing against the Fun Digica members, and this episode continues with...

The match is Iwai vs. Miyano.




Also after the match they show off Booster Set EX-03 during the post match housekeeping (going over products, etc.)

We get a preview of Aegisdramon! It has fun art featuring a 'fire it all' style to it. One of the fun things is the card frame is actually there in this one, it's just not super visible due to all the art effects, in a few places using the shape of the card with the art.

Shortly after the episode a better quality version (with sample text) was put up by the Digimon Card Twitter. Both versions of each are included above.

I wasn't expecting Aegisdramon to be Lv.7. I know that it originates as an evolution of Plesiomon, but that was more of a lore thing than something that is actually utilized. At most, I would've expected it to be a Lv.6 with an evolution condition for Plesiomon, similar to the Chaosdramon card.

On that note, the effect that supports cards with [Seadramon] in their names is a nice reference to the lore too.

the traits of aquatic digimon are weird when localized so I'm not sure if Aegisdramon can target more than cards that would be localized to English as "Sea Animal". For now I'm only going to put "Sea Animal"


Aegisdramon
Mega | Vaccine | Cyborg
[When Digivolving] You may play 1 blue Lv. 3 Digimon, a Digimon with 'Seadramon' in it's name, a Digimon with [Sea Animal] in its traits, or a Digimon card with a trait that contains the word [Aqua] from the digivolution cards of 1 of your blue Digimon without paying its memory cost.
[Opponent's turn] (Once Per Turn) When your opponent plays a Digimon, you may activate 1 of this digimon's [When Digivolving] effects.

I usually only notice the Seadramon parts of the design, but this pov is better to notice the overall bodyshape, which resembles Plesiomon more.

I never noticed it had those blue stripes nor the blue hair coming out of it's neck, either. I guess the design felt so mechanical and busy that I kinda zoned out every time I seen it.

It would be nice if blue had ways of stacking sources to refresh the source playing effect like black x-antibody does.

What is the exact phrasing? Is it specifically just the [Aquatic] trait alone, or is it any trait with [Aquatic] in its name?

The latter would also include Aquatic (dub: "Sea Animal"), Aquatic Mammal (dub: also "Sea Animal"), Aquatic Beast Man (dub: "Aquabeast"), and Ancient Aquatic Beast Man (dub: presumably "Ancient Aquabeast" but unconfirmed).

This question also applies to the prior Plesiomon card's effect.

Combined with Plesiomon's inheritable, Aegisdramon makes a great floodgate against your opponent playing digimon since you can just play something of the same level they played and then return whatever they played back to hand if Plesio is in anything's inheritable.

It's listing [水棲] (Aqua), so it should be "[Aqua] or [Sea Animal]".

I didn't realize this translation nightmare. I had to check in the reference book, and Digimon like Gizamon and Rukamon are [水棲哺乳類] (Aquatic Mammal) while Whamon is just [水棲] (Aqua), but it has been listed as the former before in non-reference book media, and it would make sense for it to be (Aquatic Mammal) too.

Edit: the TCG probably would have less headache if the translations for Aquatic Mammal were "Aquabeast" and Aquatic Beast Man was "Aquabeastkin" and "Ancient Aquabeastkin". Then they could do the same as the Japanese and only list Aqua.*

The reference book localization is still very inconsistent, so they sure could help streamlining some of these.

Edit 2: as mentioned below, I was looking at the wrong Whamon. The Adult and Perfect level Whamon have different types.

*I do not read or speak Japanese. Merely basing on the little I seen from checking the reference book.

It's cards "that includes Aquatic in its Traits" so it won't be a problem in this case.

Rohan is right, that it seems to be any "Aquatic" trait, but I can't find examples of any of those traits not just becoming "Sea Animal" in the English card game although admittedly I'm at work so I haven't been able to look as extensively as I could later. Gomamon's line is localized as "Sea Beast" and I'm not sure if that is affected?
If you see the English card game having used a trait that Aegisdramon should affect, it would be good to know but even then it's still hard to know for sure for the English card game

Yeah I'm surprised he gets to have the increase to lv7. Sucks to be Chaosdramon, I guess.

Gomamon's line are Marine Beast-type (海獣型), which is distinct from Aquatic Mammal-type (水棲哺乳類型) and does not include Aquatic (水棲) in it.

As mentioned, the dub name for Aquatic Beast Man-type (水棲獣人型) is "Aquabeast" (e.g. BT5-027 MarineDevimon and BT6-026 Dagomon), and it does include Aquatic (水棲) in it.

That's not an inconsistency on the Card Game's fault. It's consistently using the classification given by the DRB entry. You're just looking at the wrong entry. Perfect-level Whamon is listed in the DRB as Aquatic Mammal, while Adult-level Whamon is listed as Aquatic.

Anyways, they definitely intended for these inclusions, as they specified [水棲] (Aquatic) instead of [水棲型] (Aquatic-type).

oh, I missed that trait. Maybe I should write "[Sea Animal] in its traits or a trait that contains the word [Aqua]."?

It doesn't seem necessary to portion off the "Aqua-" from "Aquabeast", as the only other "Aqua" type that haven't been introduced yet is AncientMermaimon's type, which will probably be "Ancient Aquabeast".

Heh Aegisdramon in this card look like it's belonged to CardFight! Vanguard because there are tons of crazy details on dragon bosses.

Now I do see some parts on Aegisdramon resembling enough of MetalSeadramon and Plesiomon.
Like MetalSeadramon's hair and gold/silver color and Plesiomon's body with... Cyborg limbs added.

The art makes me love him, just another example of official arts being ugly as sin.

His level 7 also, makes sense since his a fusion of plesiomon and seadramon species.

I can't really think of a work where Chaosdramon was treated as a higher level than Mugendramon, in spite of evolving from it. That is the case with Aegisdramon though.
