July’s Updates Reach for the Stars! (Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM)

July’s updates have brought a NEW ERA to Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM! You’ve seen the teasers, you’ve heard the rumors and now a BIGGER AND BETTER BAM has finally landed on your screen! TWO brand new features, 32 new Objectives, endless bug squashing and MUCH MORE have gone into this update…you told us what you wanted and we listened!

Here are the five MAJOR updates we have implemented…we think you’re going to like them.

Counting Down to Worlds (ARG)

If you thought the current format had too many playable decks, preparing for Worlds would quickly make you appreciate how limiting the TCG format is. At Worlds, the possibilities are endless.

Meet the Dark Scorpions (Konami)

A haunted mine filled with gold? Who better to “investigate” than the Dark Scorpions! Don Zaloog and his team have returned, and they’re eager to get their hands on the treasure found in Gold Series: Haunted Mine.

Sleeper Picks In Battle Pack Sealed: Part 2 (TCGPlayer)

Last time around, we looked at five cards that I consider to be under-the-radar highlights in Battle Pack Sealed: cards that might not be as obvious as some of the marquee power-rares in the set, but that are deceptively strong when the chips are down. Today I want to look at ten more sleeper hits; ten cards that you should pay special attention to when they show up in your Draft or Sealed packs, that can make game-breaking differences in your Battle Pack performance.

Return of the Duelist Preview Part 9: The Rest (TCG Shiyo)

For the 9th part of my REDU Preview I’m simply going to be looking at the remaining cards from the original 80 card set that I didn’t feel particularly fell into any of the other 8 categories. Arguably some could have gone in Remaining Themes but I’m sure there won’t be too many complaints as long as they get covered. As such these cards are all over the place, from Vanillas, to anti-burn, to effect negation to gambling.
