Yesterday, an interview with KDE's Vice President of Card Business, Yumi Hoashi, revealed that there will be FIVE new Noble Knight cards in the TCG release of Shadow Specters, set to debut on November 8.
It's amazing how much of an impact this news story has, considering how easy it is to summarize. Noble Knights, which are already a decent deck and slated to become even better after the recently announced Noble Knight Drystan comes out next week, are apparently going to comprise HALF of the ten World Premiere card slots in SHSP.
How do you guys feel about this? Personally, I feel like it's too much. I don't like the way the entire archetype was handled, from how they ate up our Sneak Preview promo slots, to how there were only one or two of them per set, to Medraut and likely Drystan being Secret Rares... and now this, with HALF of the WP slots being given to a single archetype. The deck will already be good after Drystan comes out, so why can't you just leave it as good instead of trying to break it? Well, I guess that's just Konami for you. Looks like we might have a Noble Knight / Fire Fist format to look forward to for the end of the year, guys.
