    Okay, these are honestly awesome. I don’t think Battlin’ Boxer is gonna be a competitive deck but it really needed a giant set of completely new pushed support that gave it something else to do and basically every one of these cards is really neat, I’m super excited to try them out when these drop. I like that they still kinda vaguely care about battle a bit to keep their core identity.

    I wonder if we may get that hypothetical-but-never-shown CNo.54 in this pack?

    • April 6, 2023 at 12:32 am

      Prolly not

    • April 6, 2023 at 12:36 am

      Seeing as Konami usually teases the support themes one-at-a-time, I would think we would not.

      Also, Lion Heart was used by Nistro, not Alito

    can’t Uppercutter also search the Counter Trap Counter Counter?

    • April 6, 2023 at 1:27 am

      They said that

    • April 7, 2023 at 10:27 am

      This about the set that contains pure fire archetypes that showed up in the anime not mixed mixed ones that were made to fill up a pack

    Give us Volcanics, give us Volcanics, give us Volcanics! Payne96 at the time of this message has said and I quote “Day 1500 of waiting for Good Pyro/Volcanic Support to arrive in the OCG/TCG………..” on twitter. So please give us Volcanic support! That’s 4 years, and 40 days of no good Pyro/Volcanic support

    I honestly wish Battlin’ Boxer got more spells and traps. I do like the new trap it’s just I wish they were more like it.
