The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with card previews from Booster Set EX-03 Dragon's Roar. This time it's Holydramon.

Holydramon we already saw a bit early from V-Jump, but that doesn't change that the art is still quite striking, and has the flat textured ook we've seen elsewhere in the set.

ever since I first saw Magnadramon/Holydramon I loved it because I have a lot of comforting nostalgia regarding the dragon from the Neverending Story and I made the aesthetic connection instantly. Although I'm not sure if that dragon inspired Magnadramon or if it's just a coincidence/shared inspiration the two pulled from.

Gossan's art style is really amazing here. This might be a showcase card when it comes to the strength of their art.


Magnadramon
Mega | Vaccine | Holy Dragon / Four Great Dragons
[When Played] All of your opponent's Digimon gain <Security Attack -1> until the end of your opponent's next turn. If this card was played by the effect of [Trial of the Four Great Dragons], all of your opponent's digimon gain <Security Attack -2> until the end of your opponent's next turn instead.
[When Deleted] If you don't have [Trial of the Four Great Dragons] in your battle area, play 1 [Trial of the Four Great Dragons] from your hand to your battle area without paying its memory cost.

This is so cool. Dog>cat>lady>dragon is peak digimon to me, I have a huge soft spot for Holydramon.

The Four Great Dragons are probably at least partially based on the Dragon Kings of the Four Seas from Chinese and Korean folk religions, with Holydramon specifically seeming to invoke the image of Ao Run, the white dragon. Given how ubiquitous that style of lóng is in popular culture it would not surprise me at all to learn that her softer, fluffier design was cultural cross-pollination from Falkor's design, who himself likely drew on Chinese Dragons for design. I had the same thought when I saw her! Interestingly, Falkor's original name, Fuchur, is believed to be a German transcription of the Japanese word "Fukuryu," literally "lucky dragon".

This Gossan art is so sick. I'm just waiting on our girl to get a parallel art printing!
