A few different card updates today...

First up...



New card preview from the Digimon Card Game!

The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with more card previews from Booster Set 3 Union Impact. This time it's option card Desperado Blaster.

Desperado Blaster features Paildramon doing his signature attack in a fun cartoony art style.



Then we get some more cards for Booster Set 3!



Previous booster sets included parallel cards of the Tamer cards as their bonus parallel cards, but this time we get 6 adult level Digimon: Greymon (Virus), Airdramon, Ankylomon, Flymon, Gururumon, and BlackTailmon.

Each booster box will contain one of the parallel cards, randomly packed.

These feature the same artwork as the standard cards, but alternate designs from the standard cards that will be included in the booster set that we've seen previously. They have the same card numbers and card effects as the normal cards, so count as the normal card in your deck.

Digimon Card Game Booster Set 3 Union Impact is scheduled to release on October 30th.


Previous card previews for Booster Set 3:


And then a bit more, we get our first look at the upcoming new starter decks!

These will be decks of 54 cards, made from 16 potential cards. The rarity distribution is the same as in the first wave of starter decks:
7 Common
5 Uncommon
3 Rare
1 Super Rare

All 3 come out November 27th




Starter Deck 4, Giga Green



Giga Green features Koushiro as the box character, and the first cards we get to see of it are Koushiro, Tentomon, Kabuterimon, and HerculesKabuterimon.




Starter Deck 5, Mugen Black



Mugen Black features Taichi as the box character, and the first cards we get to see of it are Taichi, Agumon, MetalGreymon (Virus), and BlitzGreymon.




Starter Deck 6, Venom Violet



Venom Violet features Yamato as the box character, and the first cards we get to see of it are Yamato, Gabumon, WereGarurumon (Black), and CresGarurumon.



The box elements for 2 of them aren't quite who you would expect to see based on the name, so it'll be interesting to see what other cards show up.


Previous details on the new starter decks can be found here.


Update- Significantly larger versions of the starter deck boxes from the Digimon Card Game Twitter, just a bit pixely on the art if you go full size.




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!

Where are Mugendramon and VenomVamdemon, Bandai?

And now Bandai probably spoiled us Adventure:.

Wow, so much awesome stuff to go through. First things first, Desperado Blaster looks awesome and despite being a Blue card it being Paildramon so it gives coverage for Green as well.

Surprised that the Security Digimon got the parallel cards but they look cool at least.

The Starter Decks look amazing but Purple and Black being CresGarurumon and BlitzGreymon is really throwing me off. o_O

some thoughts:

the Desperado Blaster card makes me realize that I wish some option cards counted for more than one color. I think this card having text saying it also counts as a green card so that mono-green decks can use it would have been cool

I think this is the first time we've seen BlitzGreymon discharge electricity from areas other than his shoulder cannons! His knees, shoulders, and hands seem to be the areas where he can also discharge electricity, although I already thought he could discharge electricity from his hands as that seemed obvious

that Matt card looks so bad, I think they're too scared of you doing an insane combo but it just leaves it as a card where all I can think of is the word "unwhelming"
edit: In exhausted, I forgot that Tamers stack. It's not a bad card. Was going to pass out before the fact Tamers stack hit me

Tentomon being a Draw 1 when played is instantly going to have him see play. It may be conditional but that's only because it's green, not a color where draw is one of its core mechanics, but the rarity of draw effects in green just makes Tentomon even more valuable, and that condition is a rare chance to nonexistent if you play a mostly green to pure green deck. If you get the green deck do not lose Tentomon as he will always have mega value for green decks!

I really like that the Digi-Burst ability is shared across multiple colors. Having an extra resource in Digivolution Sources to spend on effects opens up more possibilities when playing and puts even more emphasis on deciding whether to play or evolve a Digimon, which was already a central question in this game. It reminds me of the XYZ monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh

I really hope BlitzGreymon and CresGarurumon there are implying something about what’s going to happen in Colon... I mean, I’d prefer all-new evolutions, but I’ll take “has never been animated before” too!

Huh what the Hades? BlitzGreymon and CresGarurumon being on the picture along with Taichi and Yamato?! I hope it doesn't imply...

New Child level cards started to show they are protecting their previous evo forms... I guess that's good?

Ah Kabuterimon DW1 reference! MetalGreymon (Virus) artwork is amazingly menacing!

BlitzGreymon shooting all electric discharges! But oddly the gun shoulders aren't even aiming in the front aim lol

CresGarurumon with another new artwork is really great and it's easy to see in closer zoom!

Flymon getting a hologram card?! Even Gururumon... lol I guess that's cool?

I'll be honest, I was expecting Mugendramon and VenomVamdemon to be the cover cards of the Black and Purple Starter Decks, given the names and all. I suppose those two don't make as good marketable "protagonist" material as Greymon and Garurumon variants do, but I digress.

The new Tai seems really good. Black is all about Blockers so I figured they'd get a card like this eventually, though the idea I had was as an Inheritable Skill rather then a Tamer. Still, essentially getting to Block an additional time with one of your bigger Blockers seems rather nice for dissuading your opponent from attacking, since it'd require an additional sacrifice on their end to bait it fully, and is just overall good for defense against stuff like Rookie Rush. Overall, very satisfied with the design of this card.

I was actually thinking about how I felt a BlitzGreymon in Black wasn't particularly necessarily given the one from Union Impact can evolve from Black anyways, but here we are. Unfortunately doesn't seem like that great of a card, as it's just kind of a big beatstick, doesn't seem like it'd be particularly worth using 4 memory for at first glance. Kinda surprised Blitz doesn't have Blocker tbh since again, that's the main theme of Black so I'd have thought the big cover card of the Black Starter deck would have Blocker. I guess the MetalGreymon gives Blocker, but I'm kinda iffy on this card given it only lasts a turn and Blockers are generally good for their long term presence.

With that being said, I like DigiBurst as a mechanic conceptually, having an option for Evolution Sources to be another type of resource allows for quite a bit of variety in terms of card design, such as a theoretical Lv.6 having a really powerful DigiBurst 4 effect, but it requires you to go through the entire chain from Lv2 by design. It also allows Digimon with Non-Inheritable Skills and the cheap to evolve Vanillas to have even more impact, so that's nice. Just a shame that my favorite of the three Lv6's here definitely feels like the weakest, but oh well, you can't win them all.

I could go into the Green and Purple cards more, but Black is the color I'm most interested in and this post has already gone on far too long, so I'll just end it here by saying I like them, think they're solid additions to their respective colors.

Really happy with the new Izzy and the Digi-Burst mechanic! Also happy to see more support for the Blocker deck, just wish Tai wasn't the tamer again (are we at 5 now??).

I'm definitely foreseeing a mechanic (aside from the current RagnaLoardmon) that can consistently replenish digivolution sources which would make things like Digi-Burst even more interesting

Well, that’s disgusting. Why didn’t they just call them Plasma Black and Kanji Mashup Purple?

oh, you helped me realize that Tentomon is hanging out with Kabuterimon in Kabuterimon's card and that all the flames in WereGarurumon's card is from fighting Blue Meramon!

Unfortunately doesn't seem like that great of a card, as it's just kind of a big beatstick
I'm curious if you're able to activate Digi-Burst during your opponent's turn like you can the Blocker effect. If so, BlitzGreymon could be pretty defensive

I wonder if theyll manage to call it Death Parade Blaster like the recent games in the English version

And I guess they're implying that Blitz and Cres are forms of Tai's/Matt's Digimon (hopefully lol)

I thought it's really easy to see the whole background. D: but I was just focusing strongly on their whole backgrounds really carefully for fun references.

I don't collect the cards so I don't have much to say here except that the art for the Tentomon card is the most darling thing I've ever seen.

Blitz Black is also alliterative.

I got nothing for Cres Garurumon
