Digimon Card Game – New Awakening SECs

Now that the Next Adventure booster is in full swing, it’s time to start looking at the next set heading to the Digimon Card Game in May. New Awakening, known as New Hero in Japan, will focus on the Digimon Adventure 02 anime series and will introduce new Keyword Effects and Tamers, as well as the Armor Digivolution and DNA Digivolution forms. In this article, we take a look at the SECs, which will be the rarest and most valuable cards of the booster.

The Digimon franchise is full of Digimon with incredibly literal names. For example, there is Ghostmon, Baboongamon, Bearmon and Mushroomon, just to name a few. Well, with the New Hero set, one of the SECs will have the very fitting name of Creepymon, for obvious reasons. This demonic-looking Digimon can trash 2 cards for every Digimon your opponent has on the field. If you trash 4 or more, you get to play a level 5 Digimon from the trash. This means that if your opponent has more Digimon than you, you can even out the playing field a little. When attacking, Creepymon trashes cards from the top of your opponent’s deck, depending on how many you have in the trash, and gains +3000 DP also. This ability could devastate your opponent’s deck, especially if they lose key cards they were hoping to draw.

Imperialdramon Paladin Mode

Acquiring the holy power of Omnimon, this is the strongest form of Imperialdramon Dragon Mode. This Digimon is a legend within the franchise that is finally getting a card that does its incredible power justice. Imperialdramon Paladin Mode has a nice recycling ability that returns a trashed card to the bottom of the deck while reducing the digivolution cost of this card by 4. This Digimon’s Digivolving and Attacking ability can really break down your opponent’s forces by stripping the cards from beneath one of the Digimon and sending all Digimon with no Digivolution cards beneath them to the bottom of the deck.
