Digimon Card Game – Digital Hazard D-Reaper chain

So far, we’ve shared several cards from the EX-02 Digital Hazard set that focuses on the Digimon Tamer series. In this article, we take a closer look at the D-Reaper cards, which marks a first for the Digimon TCG, as they are not actually Digimon. This new archetype is like nothing we have seen before in the Digimon TCG and has the potential to be formidable within the meta.

If D-Reaper is going to be a focus in the EX-02 Digital Hazard set, it will be interesting to see what other cards make an appearance, especially if their alternate art versions are Classic Collection styles. If this is the case, then I would love to see Beelzemon and Arukenimon, as well as the classic artwork of D-Reaper that appeared in Hyper Colosseum.

As D-Reaper cards have no level, it is unlikely they can Digivolve or get deleted by cards that state a specific level. This will make them incredibly difficult for certain decks to combat. Including characters that are not Digimon is an exciting prospect, as it means that they could eventually include Appmon, which is a spin-off series to the Digimon franchise.

In the Digimon Tamers anime, D-Reaper is a digital being created by the United States Department of Defense to take care of the ‘Creeper’ virus. Unfortunately, after years of hibernation, the D-Reaper returns and threatens to delete everything in existence.

Despite being a Digitama, Mother D-Reaper can actually be played in the Battle Area as it has DP. Again, this is a first for the game and could be the beginning of Digitama that can exist in the Battle Area as a form of support. The artwork of these cards is interesting, in the way that they appear to almost be screenshotted from the anime, rather than artist interpretations. This decision will no doubt be met with mixed opinions, as some may see it as lazy rather than a creative decision. 

EX-02 Digital Hazard is made up of 74 types of Cards – 26 Common, 20 Uncommon,18 Rare,8 SR and 2 SEC. Bandai has also shared that EX-02 Digital Hazard will have 30 different alternate arts in the set. This set, which was released in December for the Japanese version of the Digimon Card Game, will hit the English game on June 24th.
