The next new Yu-Gi-Oh! set, Ignition Assault, marks 10.000 unique cards released in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. Ignition Assault brings two new archetypes and support for older archertypes, from the legendary Senka warriors (Ancient Warriors) to the @Ignister monsters from the VRAINS anime to the living Megalith statues. Ignition Assault is a 100-card set containing eight Secret Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, 14 Super Rares, 20 Rares, and 48 Commons and has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $ 3.99 per booster pack (3,60 €).
One of the new themes introduced in Ignition Assault are the Senka! They consist of WIND, WATER, and FIRE Beast-Warrior type monsters. Some of the monsters in this theme, like Ancient Warriors - Sun Mou, let you send one card you control or in your hand to the GY to Special Summon another Senka monster from your deck - but only if you control fewer monsters than your opponent. The more powerful Senka warriors, like Ancient Warriors - Loyal Guan Yun, can Special Summon themselves from hand when certain conditions are met. Some of these conditions can be as simple as your opponent controlling monsters or you controlling two or more Senka monsters. There's more than just Special Summoning here though, as their additional effects are nothing to scoff at. Many of these cards are able to power up your side of the field while weakening your opponent's defenses.
Like I mentioned earlier, Ignition Assault marks ten thousand different cards released for the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game. In the OCG, they are commemorating this occasion with the powerful Ten Thousand Dragon*. This golden titan takes the number 10.000 to the next level! To be summoned, it requires monsters as Tribute whose combined ATK and DEF are 10.000 or more. However, the fun actually only starts after it's summoned this way, because it ends up with 10.000 ATK and DEF! Unfortunately, we won't be receiving it in the TCG version of the expansion, but it's still a great nod to Yu-Gi-Oh's long history.
Ignition Assault comes out on 30 January 2020, so make sure you get your hands on these brand new cards to ignite your new strategies!
