Battle Pack 8, 9 and Ghost Game promo pack- Best looking artwork yet?

Although 2021 is drawing to a close, that hasn’t stopped Bandai from regularly revealing new cards. The latest of these are cards coming with the Digimon TCG Battle Packs that are given out at in-store events, and the Ghost Game promo packs. All of these new cards have striking artwork, which includes some of the best alternate arts we have seen for some time. 

Battle Pack 8 –

Battle Pack 8 was first given out at Japanese events in November and will eventually arrive in the English version of the game as part of the Tamer Party Event Packs or Tournament Packs. Those participating at in-store events will be able to get their hands on these promos displaying alternate arts of previous booster cards. Each pack comes with one card and there are a total of four to collect. The first card of Battle Pack 8 is an alternate art Goblimon that shows the Digimon from another angle as he marches with his buddies. Next is an adorable alternate art of DemiMeramon and a more gentle version of Anylamon, that came with Special Booster 1.5. The final card of the Digimon TCG Battle Pack 8 is Gabumon, who is also on the artwork of the pack. This card was also chosen as the winner card design, which has had its background removed and a silver patterned foil added.

[On Play] Reveal 3 cards from the top of your deck. Add 1 Digimon card with [Garurumon] in its name and 1 Digimon card with [Omnimon] in its name among them to your hand. Place the remaining cards at the bottom of your deck in any order.

Battle Pack 9 – 

The latest Battle Pack coming to the Digimon TCG will be given out in December for Japanese players, with the cards eventually arriving in the English version of the game at some point. This time around, we will get three Starter Deck alternate arts, as well as one alternate art booster card. 

Battle Pack 9 includes Kabuterimon showing off another of his workout routines, DarkTyrannomon continuing its destruction of the city, a very sinister Devimon leaping out of the card and a SlashAngemon fighting Fujinmon, who will also be the focus of the Winner card. All of these designs are fantastic and are among some of the best alternate art cards that have come out of a Battle Pack in some time.
