With every series of Digimon, there is always that one Tamer and his partner that you like more than the others, whether it is because you can relate to them or just find the character and Digimon really cool. When it comes to the Digimon Tamers anime, one of the most popular duos is Henry and Terriermon. Although we haven’t seen many cards from the Terriermon chain up until now, EX-02 Digital Hazard will introduce a brand new mechanic.

This deck mechanic is simple, but one you could have some fun with. It works by resting your opponent’s Digimon, or taking advantage after your opponent has attacked. Gummymon’s Inherited Effect allows you to draw a card if one of your opponents Digimon is rested, while Terriermon lets the chain gain +2000 DP. Rapidmon allows you to force a Digimon into rest if you have a green Tamer, which then lets the Inherited Effects of the cards beneath it kick in. Rapidmon’s own Inherited Effect also bolsters this chain by giving it Security Attack +1 as long as there is a rested Digimon.
Gargomon and MegaGargomon continues this rest focused mechanic, with Garomon’s Inherited Effect further increasing the DP of the Digimon by +2000 DP. The final stage of the chain, MegaGargomon, not only stops your opponent’s Digimon from going into active next turn, but after it attacks, it returns a rested Digimon to the hand if the DP is higher than the selected Digimon. Considering that Terriermon and Gargomon will raise its DP to 17000, it will be a hard one to avoid.
The Henry Wong Tamer adds a lot of support to this archetype by giving you another opportunity to rest your opponent’s Digimon by resting the Tamer. As is the case with some of the previous Tamers, the boost to 3 memory, from 2 or lower, is always well welcomed. Technically, Super Evolution Plug-In S isn’t part of this mechanic, but will come in handy for a free 3 cost Digivolve. If this card is in your Security, you can search the top 3 cards of your deck to find a helpful card from the Terriermon chain.
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.
