Jump Festa 2013 Promo Review pt. 3

Yes, it's back again. I knew that after some time, I'd eventually think of other things you can do with this year's Jump Festa cards, or at least just see what other people are saying about them. So in this post, I'm going to cover more angles the cards can be approached from so we can get an even better picture of how good (or bad) they are. Let's get started!

Jump Festa 2013 Promo Review pt. 1

One of the things I love the most about blogging is the freedom. Back when I was on Youtube consistently, I always felt constrained by viewcounts. But here, I feel like I can write about almost anything I want to, and today that means a review of the ten latest promos out in Japan. So let's get started!

Harpie Blackwing Deck Profile

I heard that the three new Harpie cards revealed from LTGY yesterday were ALREADY posted on Dueling Network, so I decided to whip this together for your viewing pleasure:

CBLZ Sneak Preview Promo Revealed

Not a bad card, not bad at all. If you somehow can't kill the monster holding this card for more than two turns, your opponent nets some serious life gain. Plus it just passes to another Noble Knight should it get destroyed, which is cool. I always love life effects that don't require you to go out of your way to get them, and this is great. +500 ATK is useful too!

CBLZ TCG News 1 - Fire Fist

Every time I write some filler, actual news comes out and then I look like a loser with no life because I posted multiple times in a row. :/

In another bit of Cosmo Blazer news, Konami has launched the TCG product page for the upcoming set - you can check it out here. (Whoo for finally taking the time to embed links!!!) They give you a brief intro to the Fire Fist that confirms their promo cards will be OCG additions to the TCG set release, but they will also update the page over time with more news. So bookmark the SHIT out of that shit (yep), and check it often.

ALSO, in very exciting news, I will be going to a tournament tomorrow! I'm very excited. Hopefully the past two weeks of grueling practice will have paid off and I will do well, but if not, at least we'll have another great story for the history books.

CBLZ Special Edition Promo Rumors, Missing Tournaments

Mkohl40 recently posted a video in which he found an image showing the two promos for the Cosmo Blazer (that's blazer with ONE a, not two) Special Edition: Wind-Up Shark and Blade Armor Ninja. These haven't been confirmed yet to the best of my knowledge, but they make sense. Although they aren't super expensive, neither card is exactly dirt cheap.

As I write this, on Troll and Toad a copy of Blade Armor will run you either $10.99 or $11.49, and Wind-Up Shark costs either $15.99 or $19.49. Shark is probably the most expensive card Wind-Ups have left; reprinting it would make them considered "budget" in the eyes of many more players, while Warrior type monsters are often fan-favorites and Blade Armor significantly boosts their power. Not to mention when the SE comes out, both of these cards will have been out for about a year - a typical timeframe for reprints. Keep in mind though that these are just RUMORS!

I haven't exactly had fun missing the past two local tournaments on 11/30/12 and 12/07/12, and it's looking like I'll be missing the one scheduled for this Friday (11/14/12) as well. I got some pretty horrific grades this semester; I'd be lucky to not get into a fistfight with my mom, let alone be able to use her car to drive seven miles to a tournament. I really can't deal with stupid stuff like this making my life worse right now, but it's not like it wasn't my fault that I did badly this semester. At least there's still time to return the books I rented before we incur fees. Sigh.

Duelist League 15 Full Spoiler

This is maybe one of the least relevant sets due to availability, but either way check it out:

I don't have much experience with reviewing this type of set because honestly it's just too rare to care about. But I am happy with the following reprints:

Frost and Flame
Wonder Wand

Five good ones out of 20 isn't bad...for Konami. Plus, the other cards not listed here aren't even that bad, so I could see this being an okay set if they would just give it out more often. But you gotta let the little kids have something too!


2013 Zexal Tin (Premium Collection Sequel) Promos Announced

So this set will supposedly have three Ultimate Rare promos (that come in each tin) and a set of 21 Supers and Ultras that get randomly pulled from for each tin (4 Ultras and 11 Supers for each tin).
Judging from the cover of the tin, Number 61: Volcasaurus and Radiant Photon Paradios are going to be in on the action. I'll tell you right now, if I see an Ultimate Rare Volcasaurus you guys can just go ahead and take me out of the oven because I WILL BE SO DONE.

I think it's safe to say that many of the cards in the set will be the new cards from the Yuma and Kaito Duelist Packs, so it'll be nice to see cards like Dododo Warrior and Lady Gaga's Shield finally released in America. I'm not exactly excited about the Kaito stuff coming out because for some reason a LOT of people have a fetish for Photon / Galaxy decks, and I just think they're so annoying to play against. They almost never even beat you, they just annoy you with pointless combos. I will admit that Photon Thrasher with Galaxy Knight into Galaxy Expedition is still a nice thing to witness, though.
