Yu-Gi-Oh! Raging Tempest and Fusion Enforcers are unleashed

With the announcement of Link Summons in Japan coming later this year following the conclusion of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V anime series, it seems the future of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is in for a big change. You will see it especially in the way you play if you happen to focus on extra deck and pendulum summons.

Raging Tempest was released just a little over two weeks ago, and while there aren’t any cards that really stand out in this set currently, it does add new cards to older archetypes that haven’t seen any support in years. There are a few cards in set to keep an eye out for including the Windwitch cards and maybe even the Zoodiac cards which have some interesting effects that can really make a duel move quickly, but it seems it’s all centered around keeping the spell card Zoodiac Barrage on the field. Sadly I didn’t pull anything I could use in any of my decks, but the thing about Yu-Gi-Oh! is you never know how things might change in the near future.

 

Fusion Enforcers is the latest release focusing on a variety of fusion cards used by ARC-V’s Sora and Yuri. This 60 card set features archetypes including Predaplant, Invoked, Fluffal/Frightfur as well as reprints of older cards such as Elemental Hero Prisma, King of the Swamp, Polymerization, Fusion Recovery and more that can really help strengthen any fusion decks.

The one card I was hoping to get in this set was the powerful Greedy Venom Fusion Dragon, not to use but to add to my collection. It’s a great card with some dangerous effects if you can pull it off without your opponent, negating its summon. It has the ability to negate your opponent’s monster effects, drop its attack to 0 and most importantly, as long as you have a level 8 or higher Dark monster in the graveyard, you can resummon it while destroying multiple monsters on your opponent’s field.

I’ve never been a fan of Konami releasing nearly every card in a set as a super. I feel it just lessens the excitement when you pull something great nowadays. I was glad to add certain cards like King of the Swamp, Fusion Recover and a few others to my older decks such as Heroes and Plants in the better rarities. Overall it is cheaper than having to find a Hobby League card which can run up to 30 dollars each.
