The latest set in the English version of the Digimon Card Game is the X-Record booster, focusing on the incredibly powerful X-Antibody Digimon that have appeared in several movies and manga, including Digital Monster X-Evolution, Digimon Chronicle, Digimon Chronicle X and Digimon D-Cyber. With this set releasing over the weekend, we take a look at the SECs of X-Record.
After Ouryumon transformed into the mighty Ouryuken sword, it is Alphamon that wields it, turning the Digimon into a more majestic form. This is referenced in this SEC, as it can digivolve for 3 from an Alphamon with Ouryumon in its Digivlution cards. Alphamon: Ouryuken has appeared in several Digimon series and movies, including Adventure tri, X-Evolution, Chronicle and Chronicle X.
When this card Digivolves, your opponent’s highest play cost Digimon get deleted, stripping them of their most powerful Digimon in play. At the end of your turn, you can return up to 7 non Digi-Egg cards from this Digimon’s Digivolution chain, to gain 1 memory for each one. If the extra energy gained would mean it is your turn again, you just continue your turn.
It is fitting that Alphamon is the other SEC alongside DeathXmon, as it was Alphamon who destroyed DexDorugoramon, whose shattered remains created this powerful Digimon. After a battle with Omnimon and Alphamon, Alphamon realises that DeathXmon is a part of him and impales himself and his opponent with his own sword, before merging back together to become Dorumon.
Although DeathXmon’s play cost may look insanely high at first glance, its effect that reduces the play cost by 3 for each of your opponent’s Digimon and Tamers looks far more manageable. In fact, in the right conditions, playing DeathXmon could be incredibly easy. Once this Digimon is in play, it can wreak havoc on your opponent – Devolving their Digimon by 1, deleting their level 4 or lower Digimon and deleting all of their lowest play Digimon at the end of their turn.
The X-Record booster was first released in Japan on February 25th and on July 29th for the English version of the game. To learn more about this latest set, check out the links below –
