Code of the Duelist
August 4th, 2017
You’ve learned how to Link Summon with this year’s new 2017 Starter Deck, now put your newfound skills to the test with Code of the Duelist! This 100-card booster set combines Fusion, Ritual, Synchro, Xyz, Pendulum, and the newest member of the family, Link Monsters, to kick off a brand-new era of Yu-Gi-Oh!
Link Monsters and the newest changes to the official rules ask you to think about where you play your cards on the field. Code of the Duelist introduces the first new Deck strategies where the position of your cards matters just as much as which cards you play! There are endless possibilities for new strategies thanks to Link Monsters, and Code of the Duelist starts with 3 new ones, along with more cards to enhance the strategy from the new 2017 Starter Deck.
• The new 2017 Starter Deck converted today’s digital technology into Dueling technology! In Code of the Duelist, more new techno-monsters are headlined by a Link Monster that lets you replace your destroyed monsters with fresh ones from your hand. Build the right formation, and you can Special Summon a monster from your hand by destroying your opponent’s monster in battle!
• Steal the spotlight with a chart-topping Link Monster! These monsters aren’t just the same old song and dance. With careful choreography, each Summon you make can reduce your opponent’s Life Points and increase your own Link Monster’s Attack Points!
• Step into the ring with a heavyweight Link Monster so intimidating, it takes the fight out of any monster with a DEF stat! Only monsters with no fear, or no DEF, can take on the champ, but it won’t be easy to Summon them because this Link Monster has 3 arrows that all point towards you!
That’s just a small taste of what’s waiting for you on the Link Summoning side of things! Code of the Duelist also features the first brand new “Lightsworn” monsters since 2016’s Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn. A mysterious shadow has fallen across the Realm of Light, infusing the Lightsworn with new powers – at a price. You can also revamp your Pendulum Domination Structure Deck with upgraded versions of cards like D/D/D Gust King Alexander or D/D/D Wave King Caesar, learn the terrifying origins of monsters like Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, and add an adorable new monster to the Rescue Squad!
The 2017-2018 Dueling season is now here. Don’t get left behind!
The Code of the Duelist booster set contains 100 cards: 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, 8 Secret Rares.
