Chaos Impact is the last main set of 2019 for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG and it’s a big one! This set is the first to ever include a playable Link 5 monster, Firewall Dragon Darkfluid, as well as brand-new cards for existing decks, like the Gladiator Beasts, Marincess, Aromages, and more. Then the set tops it off with the introduction of the Hakai* archetype (with Hakaishin as its sub-archetype), a deck based on gaining advantage by the destruction of their own cards!
Chaos Impact is a 100-card set containing 8 Secret Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, 14 Super Rares, 20 Rares, and 48 Commons. Its has an MSRP of $ 3.99 per pack (approx. 3,60 €) per booster pack.
The Hakai are an archetype of Fiend monsters, revolving around one simple thing: destruction! Their two Level 3 monsters, Unchained Twins - Aruha and Unchained Twins - Rakha, can destroy cards that you control either to summon itself or as a quick-effect respectively. When either monster are destroyed, except by their own effects, you can Special Summon another Hakai monster from your hand or deck.
Then there is the Level 8 monster Unchained Soul of Disaster with Trigger, Ignition, and Continuous effects! Magatama can use itself and one monster your opponent controls to Link Summon a DARK Link Monster. Of course, this would be a good way to summon your other Hakai monsters, but this effect also opens up a lot of possibilities to summon other monsters, like Galatea, the Orcust Automaton using an Orcust monster that your opponent controls. Oh, and Magatama also gains 300 ATK for each Hakai card in your graveyard.
Chaos Impact is filled with great individual cards that will most likely find their way into many meta strategies. First up is the new Link Monster I:P Masquerena. A Link 2 Cyberse monster requiring two non-Link Monsters, Maskerena is pretty unique as it can perform a Link Summon during your opponent’s turn while giving that summoned monster immunity from destruction by your opponent’s card effects.
Another interesting one-off card is the tiny Level 1 Bonze Alone. This fairy can be Special Summoned from your hand for no cost at all, but as soon as another monster is summoned to the field, it is destroyed. However, that doesn’t have to be a bad thing as you can use it as Link material before summoning your other monsters.
Chaos Impact has alot more to offer, so be sure to leave an impact on the competition as soon as this set releases on 24 October 2019.
