Omnimon has become something of a mascot for the Digimon Card Game ever since it was introduced in the very first set of the game, Special Booster 1.0. Since then, it has had several cards that span boosters and prize cards. In this article, we share our top 5 Omnimon cards, including prize cards that have become some of the rarest and most valuable cards in the entire game.
Omnimon (Alt Art) – BT1-084
The first big chase card of the Digimon TCG, this Omnimon was the rarest card of the Special Booster 1.0. This card skyrocketed in price in a very short period of time and remained the most valuable card right up until the Premier TO prize cards came along.
The Hyper Colosseum inspired artwork instantly struck a chord with new collectors, as well as stirring up nostalgia in those who played or collected the older Digimon TCGs from the early 2000s.
This card was top meta when it was first released and still appears in many red and blue decks today. It can delete a Digimon on Digivolution and can become a double attacker for a turn.
Omnimon Zwart Defeat (Alt Art) – BT5-112
The alternate art version of Omnimon Zwart Defeat is one of four Secret Rares that came with the Battle of Omni booster set, all of which being Omnimon variations. The artwork of this card shows just how dark the Digimon TCG can get, with the virus-ridden Digimon barely holding its rotting body together.
Most of the time, players can get annoyed to find their big cards in the Security, but with this one, it’s beneficial. When this Digimon is checked, it is played without having to pay its cost. Also, when it is deleted, it can take an opponent’s Digimon with it.
Ghost Omnimon – BT1-084
Ghost Omnimon has been a celebrity within the Digimon Card Game since it was first released in Japan. This card is the rarest booster card in the entire game, with the pull rate being extremely low.
The card design is the same as the original Omnimon card from Special Booster 1.0 but with most of its colour removed and a unique texture added. To learn more about this card, click here.
Omnimon Evolution Cup – BT1-084
This full art Omnimon is the most unique version in the TCG, exclusive to the English version of the game. It shows the full body of a battle-focused Omnimon, staring down its opponent. This card is awarded to the top 2 players of the Evolution Cup events which began in July and has the event’s name stamped on it. This card is currently one of, if the most valuable in the game, although getting an accurate value is incredibly difficult due to the lack of copies sold.
Omnimon Framed Prize card – BT5-086
The 2021 Championships draws to a close, with the World Championship beginning in March. Being the biggest event of the year merits some impressive prize cards, such as the 1st place winner card which is the Omnimon Framed Prize card.
What is really nice about these prize cards is that the circuit board backgrounds have returned, which were first seen in the Special Release Booster 1.0 Dash Packs when the game was initially released. These prize cards have a metallic appearance with foiling that will add to the effect. These cards will become some of the most valuable cards in the entire Digimon Card Game and will no doubt become grail cards for collectors in the future.
Omnimon has appeared a lot throughout the Digimon Card Game and will no doubt show up again with new variations in the future. The big question is, who will take Ominmon’s place as the focus Digimon going into the future? Or will we see a variety of different Digimon get their moment to shine as chase and prize cards?
