Raise The Flag Of Rebellion Once More With “Raidraptors”

Do you have either iron will or steel determination?

How to use the brand new “Raidraptor” cards

Kinjo Yamato-san, Shun’s voice actor in the Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V says hello.

Kurosaki Shun

A member of the “Resistance” from the Xyz Dimension who seek to take back their homeland from the invasion of “Academia” of the Fusion Dimension, one of the 4 worlds split from the original world.

    Now we have another Rank 13 besides Numerounius Numerounia

    • October 23, 2023 at 9:06 am

      Bring to life New Orders first and then we talk about rank 13 besides Numerounius Numerounia and Etheric Amon

    • October 23, 2023 at 9:09 am

      Oh wait nvm, i went straight to the comment and didn’t saw the new rank 13 lmao

    Is the third effect of Brave Strix correct?

    • October 23, 2023 at 9:17 am

      Now it’s corrected.

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:09 am

    Since the game design no longer has to live in fear of Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL, Raidraptors can finally have a direct search-to-hand for their Rank-Up-Magic Spells, after all these years. Utopic ZEXAL existing was why they never got one like this before (with Raptor’s Ultimate Mace being deliberately hard to self-trigger), and why most of ARC-V’s Rank-Up-Magic cards were Quick-Plays in the first place.

    And yes, I know of Wise Strix, including of how it was specifically designed to play around adding Normal Spell Rank-Up-Magic cards to the player’s hand.

    That Rank 13 is *chef’s kiss*
    The new Rank-Up also counts Ranks like a Synchro Summon, a reference to Kurosaki’s friendship with Crow.

    • October 23, 2023 at 9:59 am

      And since the Rank-Up-Magic Spell Card targets specifically Xyz Monsters, it’s not just any Synchro Summon. It Accel Synchro Summon as well. Bonus Point!

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:20 am

    Here we are!!!
    How much I love this deck and this duelist!
    The new cards are spectacular!
    Perhaps an archetype card that regenerates the xyz materials is still missing

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:21 am

    at firt i thought the new RR Ace was a satellite falcon´s upgrade….
    Shame, is my fave RR.
    Anyways, congrats for RR lovers ^^

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:26 am

    The (2) effect of “Raidraptor – Noir Lanius” doesn’t specify that the increase / decrease in Levels is only for the turn.

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:28 am

    I’m happy we have another rank 13, but I wish we also gotten the New Orders.

  • October 23, 2023 at 9:45 am

    Now Ultimate Falcon R10 gets crepted by R13 as also for Waking the Dragon target

  • October 23, 2023 at 11:53 am

    In regards the new Rank-Up card, the part of the effect where it is always treated as a ‘Raidraptor’ card is missing from the description.

    This is a significant part of the effect as it makes the card searchable by a number of other Raidraptor cards.

    • October 23, 2023 at 1:01 pm

      We rolled it in by changing the name.

      The TCG has generally dealt with ARC-V era name shenanigans by just moving the rule text to the text box.

  • October 23, 2023 at 4:29 pm

    There seems to be a mistranslation on Bloom Vulture. The first effect should be: 1: Can be activated if there are no face-up monsters on your field other than Winged Beast-type monsters. Special summon this card and 1 “RR” monster from your hand. Rather than “(1) If you only control Winged-Beast monsters: You can Special Summon this card and 1 “Raidraptor” monster from your hand.”

    Okay now I am annoyed that ancient gear is still not getting support, come on konami give ancient gear some love, raidraptors, performapal’s, D/D’s, and just about everything else is getting support, why not ancient gear?

  • October 23, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Too soon for more solitaire raptors. The bromance cards weren’t even that long ago.

  • October 23, 2023 at 8:32 pm

    love some more raidraptors

  • October 24, 2023 at 12:04 am

    The blood of patriots paves the road for sorching nEgATe – after a 20 minute turn of course. Would have preferred RK13 to not be monetized but then again I preferred there not being a legal print of C1000 to begin with.

  • October 25, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    Hopefully in the next set The Phantom Knights will get some support. Coughs (Rank 4 and 5 actually connected to their archetype)

  • October 25, 2023 at 7:39 pm

    ygorganization thumbnail images never disappoint.
