[edit] Duelist Pack: Yusei 3 announced!

Duelist Pack: Yusei 3 lets you add more of Yusei’s favorite cards to your Deck, including cards from the newest season of the TV series. This 30-card Duelist Pack set contains 8 new, never-before-seen cards, including 4 new monsters, 2 new Spell Cards, and 2 new Traps. That’s more new cards than any other Duelist Pack, ever!

This is your first chance to get a hold of Battle Waltz. This brand new Spell Card lets you make a copy of any Synchro Monster you control. Your new copy will have the same ATK, DEF, Level, Type, and Attribute as the Synchro Monster you’re copying. Just like that, you’ll have two big monsters instead of one!

Shut down your opponent’s strategy with Justice Bringer, a beefy Level 4 monster that can negate the effects of any monster your opponent Special Summoned. You can also power up Justice Bringer by using Boost Warrior, a new monster that pumps up the ATK of all your Warrior-Type monsters.

If you’re looking for easier ways to Synchro Summon, Synchro Material is a new Trap Card that lets you use your opponent’s monster to do your own Synchro Summon. Also, since Synchro Material is a Trap Card, you can even use it on your opponent’s turn. (And you can Synchro Summon during your opponent’s turn, if you use Formula Synchron from Starstrike Blast, or Urgent Tuning from Duelist Pack – Yusei.)

Launch Date: 1/25/11

[edit] [TCG] Costa Mesa's Shonen Jump Championship is over! And the winner is... - March 17, 2008

That's right, folks. The most recent Shonen Jump Championship in Costa Mesa, California is over, and the results are in! This SJC was the largest ever, with 1056 competitors! However, as with every tournament, one duelist must overcome them and earn the title of Champion. That one duelist happens to be Lazaro Bellido, who now has a complete set of every championship prize card ever printed!

From this tournament, it's obvious that Dark Armed Dragon is the dominant theme in the current format. Gadget, Samurai, and Burn decks busted their way through to the top 32, but they all inevitably fell to Dark Armed Dragon. By the time the top 8 was announced, all eight' decks included Dark Armed Dragon!

It's February 21, which means that Upper Deck Entertainment (UDE) is going to be releasing the new forbidden/limited list.

...Or maybe they already have. Straight from UDE's site:


I. Forbidden Cards

There are no Forbidden Cards in this format.

II. Limited Cards

There are no limited Cards in this Format.

III. Semi-Limited Cards

There are no Semi-limited Cards in this Format.

Hmm, could it be that they just don't have it up yet or are they serious and this is their way of telling Konami to put a sock in it with their banlist for the OCG? Only time will tell...

Update: This has now been updated and the list is identical to the OCG list. Check this story for the changes.
