Set Information

This Spring, a Dark Neostorm Is Brewing in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG

The second mainline expansion of the year drops on 2 May 2019 and it includes loads of support for existing decks. From Destiny HERO to World Legacy archetypes to the Xyz-incarnation of Firewall Dragon, Dark Neostorm breathes new life into recent and older strategies alike. This new core set contains 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, and eight Secret Rares, making a total of 100 cards.

The Final Battle

Since the release of Code of the Duelist in 2017, we have been following the characters from World Legacy on their journey and after countless battles, they have finally assumed their final form.

Dingirsu, Orcus of the Evening Star is a Level 8 Xyz Monster that can use any Orcust Link Monster when summoned from your extra deck. The card is a very welcome addition to any Orcust deck, which has been rising in popularity in the competitive Yu-Gi-Oh! scene. Not only is this card easy to bring out, but it can either send an opponent's card to the graveyard or recycle your banished Machine types as extra Xyz materials.

Another great card is Ib the World Chalice Justiciar, a generic Level 5 Synchro Monster focused on World Legacy and World Chalice cards. When summoned, she fetches a World Legacy card from your deck and when destroyed, she can Special Summon a World Chalice monster from either your deck or GY.

A Death-Defying and Meta-Defining Set

There is a lot more that Dark Neostorm has to offer – the set has already caught the notice of competitive players.

One of most highly anticipated cards is Cherubini, Ebon Angel of the Burning Abyss. The card was originally only released in Japan late 2017, but it is finally making its way to the TCG. Cherubini is a Link 2 monster, requiring two Level 3 monsters for its summon. It protects the monsters that it points to from being destroyed via its card effects, but it can also protect itself from destruction by sending a Level 3 monster from your deck to the GY. This amazing DARK monster has been on the competitive OCG scene since 2014!

Another otherworldly creature making its debut in Dark Neostorm is the latest addition to the hand trap family: Ghost Sister & Spooky Dogwood. By discarding this card, each time your opponent Special Summons an Effect Monster, you gain LP equal to the ATK of those monsters. Pulling off this effect can save its user from a potential OTK, giving the duelist another turn to retaliate against his opponent.

This expansion has a lot to offer for both competitive and casual players, so get ready to link into the VRAINS era and power up your deck through the power of the Dark Neostorm! Each booster pack has an MSRP of approx. 3,99 €.
