What could it be?

Could it be support for cool archetypes such as Blackwing, Infernity or Gladiator beast ? xD

Dudewitbow (guest) - 2011/12/06 00:43


the likelihood that an xyz deck would support an anime based synchro archetypes and a contact fusion archetype is extremely slim
fan de yugioh - 2011/12/06 01:03

45 = 5 Xyz?

>Messenger of Beginning unban

and Gold Series 2012

will people even bother... unless theres a Xyz reborn in it

Phaetion (guest) - 2011/12/06 03:36


...that crushes my dream of the Preconstructed deck in the duelist box being the starter deck. Oh well. Regardless though, 45 cards is huge. 5 new xyz's? I'd be in heaven. Here's to me hoping that the following make it in:

MST (2's better than 1)
Half Counter
Level Warrior

These 3 have the potential to be in a starter deck because of their potential. Either way, I'll still get it when it comes to my turf. Another deck for my collection.

Ukun (guest) - 2011/12/06 08:52

5 Xyz's?

It's probably a given for a common Utopia in here.

.... (guest) - 2012/01/18 09:02


From the information i have on hand utopia is still ultra rare while the 2 fiends xyz are super.
Which probably makes the 2 new xyz commons.
Yano88 (guest) - 2011/12/06 14:37


Those xyz monster will be some random numbers from the anime I guess.

Right now we have Numbers 15, 25 (soon), 32 and 50 still unreleased.

I don't think that they will all be released in Galactic Overload.

Drewko (guest) - 2011/12/06 19:42

No.50 would be manga promo or anything like this...
Donnell AKA D-Nasty TEAM ARCLIGHT (guest) - 2012/01/17 04:45


BEST Starter deck EVER!
Muzu Muzu Rizumu
Ten Ten Tempo!!!

WHERE IS Melo Melo Melody?!?!

Phaetion (guest) - 2012/01/17 05:35


...were you sarcastic?

I was a little let down by the new exceeds, primarily because they require the opponent to have an exceed on the field, thus making them situational. I hope they improve it from the anime effect. Go^3 Golem is worth running (forget Giant; WAY too situational; like Gottom's Emergency call was in 2009).

I'm grateful, however, for the Hope reprint. Overall, I hope Konami breaks the new exceeds and make them better than the anime effect without them being too broken *cough*Tour Guide*cough*
Expresso (guest) - 2012/01/19 12:55


I want them too =3=..
Phaetion (guest) - 2012/01/19 16:40


The thing about the new exceeds though is that their effects require the opponent to have one on the field, thus making them situational (Plus their horrid attack to start out with makes me cringe further. Yes, their effects boost their attack, but, again, situational).
Fob4eva - 2012/01/17 05:37

Rescue Rabbit

If they're supporting XYZ, they might as well reprint rescue rabbit.

Mazerkist - 2012/01/17 23:33


It's probably too soon for a Rescue Rabbit reprint. Even if this does by some chance get a reprinted Rescue Rabbit, most likely it would be removed from this Starter Deck in the TCG and made a promo in one of the 2012 Collectors Tins.
Phaetion (guest) - 2012/01/20 05:19

String Djinn Effect

Ok, that effect made me feel a little better. Too bad it's situational, but the cool part that you can use it on itself. I'd sooner be bringing this out than the drum guy.

Oh, and so no one gets the wrong idea about my previous comments regarding the new exceeds, I see it from the perspective of actually USING the starter deck as opposed to a regular deck. I make use of all the starter decks since 2008 (even combine them), so I see them through that lens as opposed to a regular player's lens (in this case). Maybe the Drum guy has its uses, but I'd still sooner be bringing out String Djinn (unless circumstances say otherwise).

Donnell aka D-Nasty TEAM ARCHLIGHT (guest) - 2012/01/20 23:21

im serious....

No sarcasm, scrub! I'm serious.
Tour guide food FTW!!! These xyz's are the future once tour guide goes to 2 if not march format definetly after nats.
This deck is amazing already.
Phaetion (guest) - 2012/01/21 00:01


True, there is the case of opponents constantly bringing out exceeds, but perhaps I might have overlooked something. Do note that I'm not a competitive player (evidence being my previous post above). True, Tour Guide does work with them (but how will you know they'll get axed? It could dodge it like Envoy did back ~2005).

I'm not complaining about String; I'm concerned about the Drum Guy only. He does have its uses, but I'd only bring him out if an opponent has an exceed, so that I can take advantage of his effect and (indirectly) protect himself.

KONAMI already have Djinn Archtype around Ritual Monster. will this card get name change?

Donnell AKA D-Nasty TEAM ARCLIGHT (guest) - 2012/02/01 00:00



Phaetion (guest) - 2012/02/01 03:41

Th Djinn Exceeds...

They work together, which is cool. Now I just need to think of a way to spam them out like crazy (besides Marauding Captain).

FF (guest) - 2012/02/06 06:57

Could TGU be in this pack?

Judging from the amount of level 3 XYZs could this be the pack which finally introduces TGU to the OCG? I'm of the thinking that it could well be because so far they've only announced one level three, Zubaba Knight, with this amount of level 3 XYZs it would be an ideal card to make people buy the pack.

Phaetion (guest) - 2012/02/18 16:25


Alexandrite Dragon? A Djinn that can make attacking easier? I think i found heaven. Let's just hope that the rest of the deck is good too (I'd love to see MST at least).

will (guest) - 2012/09/01 09:16


I still think that synchronized are the beat cuz their abilities are not limited by overlay units xyz monster are useless when their used up. That alexandrite dragon is awesome
Kaizoku Senshi - 2012/02/20 16:49

When they told me that hope would be in this pack i was already buying it.

With the new Djinn Exceeds, i think i'll get 3

Phaetion (guest) - 2012/03/13 02:51

I do believe...

...that this Starter Deck is REALLY good.

So many useful cards, and all in 1 package too. I have to say this fully justifies me getting one now (and, there's only 3 cards left to reveal; let's just hope they're even more ground-breaking).
