The second episode of Digimon Card Battle went up earlier today.

It features a match between Hideyoshi (from Fun Digica) and Araki Masaya (from the comedy duo Cocolo.)



On top of the match, they announce some of the basic details of Booster Set 2, Ultimate Power.

The overall details they give are things we got awhile ago. (And we also got some art previews from V-Jump recently on top of that.)


The main new thing was a look at the packaging for the second booster set.



The packaging gives us our best look yet at art from the set, with most of the characters ones we've seen or were mentioned before, but looks really nice.

(The first image is a crop directly out of the video at the in-video size, the second is one that I rotated and scaled up as much as I could before it degraded too much.)

The art tiles towards the top shows Devimon, Mugendramon, and Piemon, while down below we get Dukemon, ShineGreymon, and WarGreymon in action shots. All of them feature are that will show up in cards in the new set.



Booster Set 1 is out in Japan. Images of all the cards can be found here.

Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power is out in July, it can be pre-ordered at HLJ. (Not an affiliate link, it does show it came from WtW.) Their stock looks to be sold out, leaving the link in in case they add more. Details of that set can be found here.

Imo the yellow deck player should have saved his Seven Heavens for later and focused on getting Digimon out earlier to break through the red Player's security which is after all what wins the game.

I find it's better to gain an early lead on security even if you have to resort to using a few rookies as fodder for security attacks. Trump cards like Wargreymon are OP if set up and just eviscerate your security, plus the high DP and the yellow deck can only counter this with raising the DP of Security Digimon using Takeru or Recovery but it struggles against red often. Adding green cards would greatly compliment yellow in preventing attacks.

Cards like the previous Seraphimon can -4000 plus -1000 from MagnaAngemon if combined with a 2 cost Heaven's charm or 3 cost Heaven's Ripper can also take out Omnimon, but Slash Angemon also did the job perfectly.

Looking forward to what play styles the Black & Purple ones introduce, the lineup revealed so far looks awesome. I bet Gallantmon will be a Red/Yellow Colorless 15k Card like Omnimon, that or Crimson Mode will be.

the Wossy Plays YouTube channel has a theory we might get starter decks in June as we wait for the next booster pack in July. That would make a bit sense to get starter decks some time soon as we have three new colors (Green, Black, Purple) to use for another starter deck trio.
I find it odd that the War Greymon on the packaging has its torso in the the same pose as the War Greymon card's art in New Evolution

Eh, my money's on the latter since this would be the perfect opportunity to bring in Grani again as an Option Card.

that's a super good question, especially since the tamers who aren't on promotional cards so far are all from Adventure: and we don't know yet which types of Digimon will be in black and which types for purple. It's rough that the anime was supposed to be going on alongside the card game but instead went on hiatus due to the pandemic so those black and purple tamer cards were probably supposed to be characters from the show but if that's the case it could either be potential minor spoilers or changed to other characters from other Digimon media. I personally would like it if it was unrevealed new characters debuting in the card game to give an air of mystery for what the anime will bring
