Digimon Card Battle Celebrity Invasion continues with episode 3.





This episode begins with various bits of card talk (and they do a decent bit after the match also.)



They actually introduced the guest a bit early this time, as he was talking with them about the card game stuff. His name is Takahashi Kakeru. A quick search didn't clarify who he was (a card player did pop up with the name, but from a photo it doesn't appear to be the same person.)



Takahashi Kakeru and Cody from Fun Digica show off some of their cards before having a match.



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



We get a full look at Omegamon Alter-S from Booster Set 3. As always, fantastic art. We got a preview of this art from a promo poster, and it really is a striking looking card (and likely one that'll be resold highly.)




Booster Set 3 Union Impact comes out in October.

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.

Digimon Card Game Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power is out!

Omegamon Alter-S
[When Digivolved] all of your opponent's Digimon <De-Digivolve 1>. Delete all of your opponent's Digimon with 5000DP or less
[When Attacking] by returning 1 Lv.6 Digimon from this Digimon's Digivolution Sources to your hand, this Digimon cannot be Blocked during this turn

I thought Alter S had three swords for a moment I feel dumb. I wonder if it will be Omegamon or Omnimon in English? Also this hard counters Diaboromon just like Omnimon does but also Rookie Rush

God, I love this artwork. Alter-S is my personal favorite Omegamon variant, and they definitely didn't disappoint here. Great card for countering Rookie Rush/Diablomon, and as a huge fan of BlitzGreymon, I love the synergy it has with the BlitzGreymon from this set. Isn't as direct as say RagnaLordmon, but Blitz having Devolve 2 means you're much more likely to get a KO on a higher level Digimon if you evolve from BlitzGreymon, since Devolve 3 will take even a Lv7 down to Lv4, and the vast majority of them tend to cap out at around 5000 sans a few exceptions like the Blockers. New Evolution Omegamon is definitely still more splashable imo since it's got better presence in a vacuum and overall has better offense due to being able to make itself Active for a double attack, but I really like what I'm seeing here.

Seeing that Magnadramon at the end recover 2 security filled me with glee.

Omegamon Alter-S seems great! Anything below Mega level might be in trouble with de-digivolve and -5000DP

Not much to say about the battle other than it went so slowly! Both Takahashi and Cody were just too passive in the early game for my liking. :(

As for Omegamon Alter-S. It's a gorgeous card. Always interesting to see another White (or Colourless?) card and the effect seems very useful to counter stuff like Rookie Rush. <3

The board wipe effect is arguably more useful than OG Omegamon. It doesn't outright destroy your initial target but severely weakening them can have as much of an impact. Also, there is no reason not to run this alongside Ragna! Top of the meta is gonna be Omegamon vs Omegamon Alter S for sure

Seeing how regular Omegamon is called Omnimon in english there's a really high chance its gonna be Omnimon Alter-S

I don't see how that means "more useful"

if I recall correctly haven't official translations called Alter-S "Omegamon" a few times?

There have been instances in English material where vanilla "Omegamon" has been used a few times, too. Dub terms are just generally inconsistent.

I think the most head scratching instance was Next Order where you had "Omegamon" and his clones but also "OmniShoutmon" as the odd one out. o_O

[/QUOTE]

Best case scenario for OG Omegamon is killing 1 thing outright and, if they have multiple things with the same name, those as well. Killing a single threat guaranteed is fantastic, but it doesn't necessarily help with any other secondary threats.

Alter S is guaranteed disruption of every Mon they have on board with the upside of killing every 5k or less thing 100% of the time. Plus, and I'm not sure of this part, but I believe dedigivolve gets around "when destroyed" effects (for any milleniummon players out there).

I think the original Omegamon has the superior secondary skill but Alter S wins in the digivolution skill category, imo. At the end of the day, throw them both in a red shell and have fun!

Short answer, yes. Devolving is not considered a "Destruction" effect, as you're simply discarding the top of the the stack. Gets around stuff like Craniamon's Blocker Protection for the same reason. The other two common ways to dance around Destruction effects are bouncing it to either the hand or deck via stuff like Cocytus Breath in Blue or Terror Cluster in Green.

same with lowering opponent Digimon DP to 0, right?

Honestly, I'm not sure about that one. I want to say that it'll still trigger Destruction Effects, since a Digimon that hits zero DP is destroyed by game mechanics rather then an effect such as Gaia Force. It's the reason you can use something like Glorious Burst to get around Craniamon since Glorious Burst doesn't specify Destruction anywhere in it's text, it's just likely to destroy most things by an internal game mechanic rather then an opponent's card effect, same would go for destruction by Battle or Vengeance if I recall correctly. I'm pretty sure that's how it works, but if I'm mistaken, feel free to correct me, I'd hate to spread around misinformation.
