Product Review: Ancient Guardians

Product Review: Ancient Guardians

Yu-Gi-Oh's latest deck building set saw its release six days ago and is already getting sold out in both local and international markets; a stark contrast to the overwhelmingly negative reviews which ANGU got when it was first announced. In this week's review, we'll be taking an in depth look at this booster and explain exactly why Ancient Guardians is setting itself up to be one of the most promising meta strategies for the latter half of 2021! Before we get to the minute details, let's take a look at this set's makeup. As stated by Konami, the complete Ancient Guardians booster set contains 60-cards: 10 Ultra Rares, 15 Super Rares and 35 Rares, with 7 cards (6 rares + 1 foil) per booster pack. 15 cards in the set are also available as Collector's Rares, and these are still being ID'd at the time of writing.

Product Preview: 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles!

Product Preview: 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles!

Regular visitors to konami's Yugioh website all have their eyes on one product right now: the 2021 Mega Tin, otherwise named the Tin of Ancient Battles! Boldly depicting an artwork of a clash between The Dark Magician and Blue Eyes White Dragon, this year's upcoming tin is primed to take the world by storm, and waves of excitement have already started to wash over duelists worldwide in anticipation of the next big reprint product to hit the market. Although originally set for release in August, the tin's release has now been postponed by a fortnight to the 17th of September, possibly due to the recent release of Ghosts From The Past- a set which we covered in last week's article. That said, let's go over everything we know about this product so far- which is actually quite a lot! Also be on the lookout for a follow-up article in August, where we'll go into even more detail about what you can expect from this golden box of awesomeness!

Product Review: Ghosts From The Past!

Product Review: Ghosts From The Past!

Ghosts From The Past was a set which had big expectations to live up to right from the day it was announced. Yugioh's infamous Ghost Rare cards (which used to be present in every booster set till Breakers of Shadow in 2016) have always distinguished it from every other card game in existence, as they took the principles of aesthetics and card design to truly unparalleled levels. Naturally, Konami's decision to discontinue their legacy of Ghost Rare prints wasn't very popular with much of the playerbase, but as time went on people more or less forgot about it. At least, until Ghosts From The Past was announced.
