Touya of the Digimon Card Network appeared once more as a guest cohost on the Podigious podcast to talk about episode 20 of the Digimon Adventure: reboot. Join him and Jeff Ruberg as they dig into the anime, recent news, and a little bit of the TCG!
|Source Effect||[During your turn] While your opponent has a Digimon with no Evolution Sources, this Digimon gets <<Security Attack +1>>. (When this Digimon attacks Security, increase the number checked by 1.)|
The official Digimon Card portal updated early this morning with the next set of Tamer Battle and Tamer Meet promotional cards.
Beginning in October, tournament winners will receive an alternate artwork Were Garurumon print from Starter Deck 2: Cocytus Blue. This Were Garurumon is identical to the Starter Deck version in effect and card number. The previous prize card was an alternate print of Metal Greymon.
Meanwhile the Tamer Meet shop events for October will feature a new Option Card, “A New World”, as the participation prize. Tamer Meets are more casual-oriented events than the competitive Tamer Battles, with an emphasis on having fun over competing to be the best. They consist of 2 hours of free battle participation, rather than a tournament structure.
A New World
|Card Type||Option||Play Cost||0|
|Main Effect||[Main] If you have a “Tachikawa Mimi”, by placing 1 “Palmon” from your hand without paying the cost, return your “Tachikawa Mimi” to your hand.|
|Security Effect||[Security] Add this card to your hand.|
This card is the first of several to be adapted from popular Adventure, 02, tri., and Last Evolution Kizuna anime scenes voted in by fans through Digimon Web. The artwork is pulled directly from episode 54 of the 1999 Digimon Adventure TV anime, which is why the Chosen Children in the artwork do not use their reboot designs.
“A New World” creates an interesting combo for the Green deck; it allows a Green player to use Palmon‘s on-place effect for 0 cost, and (if they have enough Memory) use Mimi‘s Rest effect twice in one turn by first Resting her to activate it, then playing A New World to bounce her back to hand and play her again. This is easiest to do if Mimi was already in play when the turn began, and it requires the opponent to have given the Green player at least 4 Memory to pull off.
