If a card art makes it to the front of the booster box, you know it’s going to be special. The alternate art MetalGreymon coming with the Next Adventure set was illustrated by popular Digimon Card Game artist Tonamikanji, who is fantastic at creating depth in his card art. While on the subject of Tonamikanji, the new WereGarurumon card coming with the Next Adventure set will undoubtedly be popular among collectors, especially fans of the original Digimon anime series. Both versions of this card are very original, with the alternate art giving the Digimon a more sinister appearance, while the standard version shows him fighting on an icy terrain.
Each of the SRs of the next Adventure set will come with an alternate art, except for Ebonwumon, who is the only one not to get a second variation. Although these cards are also SRs, they will have a lower pull rate than their standard versions, which will propel them to the higher end of the market. Dorugoramon is an X-Antibody Digimon that has appeared in several Digimon video games and will now be debuting in the Digimon Card Game.
When it comes to creating creepy card art, the Digimon TCG often excels. Take the new Cherubimon cards, for instance, which introduces the sinister side of this Digimon. This card will be effective in play, with both versions on doubt being popular among collectors. There is such a huge contrast in the illustration style between the standard DarkKnightmon and the alternate art version. Although both look impressive in their own right, it’s the alt art version showing the Digimon in an apocalyptic looking scene that really stands out.
If the player uses all of the new Pulsemon cards from the Next Adventure set to play Kazuchimon, they will have an incredibly powerful defence. This is because Boutmon’s Inherited Effect will switch this Digimon to Active when the player is attacked and Bulkmon’s Inherited Effect will give it Blocker. The artwork of the standard Kazuchimon makes the Digimon look like a god from ancient Greek mythology, while the alternate art is more loyal to its samurai appearance.
In total, there will be 120 card types to collect, made up of 44 Commons, 30 Uncommons, 26 Rares, 10 Super Rares, 2 Secret Rares and 8 Campaign Rare cards. The Campaign cards will have a focus on the Tamers of the Digimon Adventure series, with their Digimon companions appearing alongside them. The set will also include alternate art cards that will have a nice golden foiled design. If you would like to learn more about these cards, click here.
