A number of Japanese card shops have begun selling pre-orders for new, unannounced, starter decks for the Digimon Card Game.

Since this is early information, best to take it as details could change, but with multiple stores in Japan selling pre-orders, it's likely from a sales sheet, so hopefully we get an image of that.


It appears the first one to put up information was Duel Gard.


The starter decks will again be 500 yen, and the decks should be 54 card decks made from 16 cards with the same rarity distribution as the first 3 starter decks:
7 Common
5 Uncommon
3 Rare
1 Super Rare



The decks feature the 3 colors that don't have starter decks yet; green, purple, and black, with the deck names appearing to be:
Giga Green
Venom Violet
Mugen Black



With the naming scheme appearing to match those of the first 3 decks (part of an attack name of the 'box cover' Digimon, plus the deck color), the names would seemingly give 'more' than big clues as to who we might expect the decks to revolve around.



No import friendly pre-orders yet, but hopefully soon.



The release date would mean these will be out roughly a month after Booster Set 3.

Booster Set 3 Union Impact comes out in October and can be pre-ordered at HLJ. (the link helps the site.)


Digimon Card Game Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power is out!

And images from previous Digimon Card Game releases:
Starter Decks 1, 2, and 3, and first 10 promo cards
Booster Set 1 New Evolution
V-Tamer Promo Cards
Purple/Black Promo Set
Tamer Battle Pack 1 and Tamer Battle Winner's Card



Thanks to a few people for the heads up.

Hmm... wonder what the ratio of new Digimon to alts of pre-existing ones will be? :unsure:

Glad the other colours are getting love at any rate.

Got to say, I’m a little disappointed (though not particularly surprised) that the deck names refer to Digimon that already have cards.

Venom Violet comes from Venom Vamdemon

Mugen Black comes from Mugendramon

The starter decks are actually named after Digimon’s attacks.

WarGreymon’s Gaia Force
MetalGarurumon’s Cocytus Breath
Angemon’s Heaven’s Knuckle
HerakleKabuterimon’s Giga Blaster
VenomVamdemon’s Venom Infuse
Mugendramon’s Mugen Cannon

Speculation time: All three Starter Decks as of yet have two "main lines" (who also get the Option Cards for their Perfect and Ultimate), a Baby (pre-evo of one of the main lines), a Child and an Adult (who tend to be related), plus the Tamer who's associated with one of the "main lines". So, given those conditions:
  • Green Deck: Motimon as the Baby, HerakleKabuterimon and Rosemon lines (plus their attacks as Option Cards), Koushiro as the Tamer. Only space for new cards would be for the extra Child and Adult cards. Worst case scenario it's Agumon-Tyranomon, second worst case it's Goburimon-Ogremon. I'm hoping for Lalamon-Sunflowmon. Absolute best case scenario that's not going to happen, Kokabuterimon and BladeKuwagamon.
  • Purple Deck: VenomVandemon line is a given. Impmon-Beelzebumon are popular enough that I'd be shocked if they aren't in it, so Wizardmon and Baalmon filling in for Adult and Perfect. That leaves us with a Baby, a Child and an Adult, and I'm guessing Petit-Meramon, Candmon and Meramon. Dunno who the Tamer could be. Probably Yamato again, since I don't think Ai/Makoto would be the face of an entire deck.
  • Black Deck: Mugendramon is the given, but since he has no "main" line, this has more free spaces than the others. Three "complete lines" I can think of are Diaboromon, Zubamon and Darkdramon. Given Diaboromon showed up in the previous BT and Zubamon is going to show up in the next, I'll be optimistic and say Darkdramon, with Missimon as Baby. Thunderballmon and Mamemon for the "Mugendramon line", and Mameo for Tamer since he's heavily associated with both Mamemon and Mugendramon. I'm missing two Child-levels and an Adult-level.

  • Purple Deck
VenomVamdemon does have a "main" line: PicoDevimon>Devimon>Vamdemon>VenomVamdemon. They're even grouped together, alongside Diablomon's line, in that Black/Purple promo pack.

But yeah, Mugendramon doesn't have a definitive line associated with it. The closest would be the Virus-attributed evo-route(s) in the Pendulum V-Pet.

Edit: My bad, I misread the first sentence.

Hagurumon evolved into Mugendramon in Tamers, so probably it as the main child.

I wish the Mamemons would get a Child all their own.

Meramon and Impmon in the same pack would please me

I doubt Reapmon tho since he traditionally has no level and they've yet to use a levelless Digimon

SkullMeramon is more likely

They just did it, but Hagurumon - Guardromon - Andromon - Hiandromon is one of those evolution lines most people at least sort of know of and can easily follow. There's also the Chessmon.

Or they could pull a real switcheroo on us and make the side line something like Kokuwamon - Tankmon - Tankdramon - Black Imperialdramon, since this is going to be after I-dramon's debut anyway.

I'm guessing Petit-Meramon, Candmon and Meramon.

They won't make the Baby match the side lines, all the Babies in the first starter set matched the guy on the box. Motimon for Green, Yaamon for Purple, and... uh, whatever path down from Mugendramon for Black. (Caprimon? Missimon is a possibility too.)

But yeah, Mugendramon doesn't have a definitive line associated with it. The closest would be the Virus-attributed evo-route(s) in the Pendulum V-Pet.

...speaking purely technically, it actually has at least two. The first is based on the preponderance of Skullgreymon into Mugendramon - a very common choice to see in video games and other media - and the fact that Skullgreymon itself comes from viral Greymons, and Black Agumons. They did just do a Greymon line in Black, so it's not impossible that they start it there, something like Black Toyagumon into Black Greymon into Skull into Mugendramon.

The other one is the one I wish for, and it arguably got a nod in Booster 2, but it won't happen. Essentially, one of the Digimon known to become Mugendramon is, uh, Chimeramon. So if you go down from that, you go to Deltamon (which I would love to have a card for, even if it's likely garbage) and then down from that to... well, they never really made a good Child for Deltamon, but Gazimon or Gizamon work in a pinch I guess. Problem is, Chimeramon being the ultimate biological Digimon is really, really out of place in a color designed for the Metal Empire.

Failing that, Metaltyrannomon, Gigadramon, Megadramon, and... Nanomon, oddly enough, are all noted very extremely valid prevos, so something like Piyomon - Airdramon - Gigadramon - Mugendramon isn't out of the running.

I would hope that the new starter decks are a tad more of an upgrade over the originals. as most of the usual cards you'd find in a starter deck can be found in the boosters. Especially Green.

The Andromon line falls in the same "it's likely, but I seriously hope they don't" territory as the Diaboromon line. Yeah, I do think that'll most likely be included, but I'm going to be blindly optimistic and say it's a new line.

I considered the Chessmon, but those have two different Perfects and Ultimates. I don't think they'd use so many spots for them. If they're in the deck, I'd think it'd just be Pawn and Knight for the spare Child and Adult (with the card depicting both colors of Chessmon).

I do like the Kokuwamon line you've proposed, though. He's the one Metal Empire digimon that's in another color.

They won't make the Baby match the side lines, all the Babies in the first starter set matched the guy on the box. Motimon for Green, Yaamon for Purple, and... uh, whatever path down from Mugendramon for Black. (Caprimon? Missimon is a possibility too.)
I mentioned PetitMeramon because he's the Baby II in the original Nightmare Soldiers Pendulum, as well as the only Nightmare Soldier Baby who is not in a card yet (other than Arkadimon I guess). Also, per wikimon PicoDevimon has never evolved from Yaamon, but it has evolved from PetitMeramon (and Pagumon).

Caprimon is a good guess for Mugendramon, and it will most likely be the choice, but again, since it already has a card I wanted to be optimistic and say something else. Mugendramon is in the Accel Evil Genome and Missimon is the Baby in that one, though, so it has some precedent.

I don't think something never having evolved from something can be considered too relevant when in these sets any digimon of a colour can be from any digimon of a colour. demidevimon HAS been able to come from yaamon as both yaamon and demidevimon are purple cards from the previous sets. this card game creates a lot of new never been seen stuff.

if venommoytismon is in it, the go to line is the demi -> devi -> venom

Not being on a card is frankly irrelevant because pretty much every Digimon in the first batch of starter decks was then in Booster 1. barring a few minor exceptions but not barring any of the Babies.
