X-Record will be the next main booster in the English version of the Digimon Card Game, which hits shelves today (July 29th). This set will take the game into a new direction, with the introduction of powerful X-Antibody forms, new mechanics and some incredible artwork of the Digimon’s altered appearances. In this article, we take a look at the top 10 rarest and most valuable cards of the X-Record booster that you will want to look out for when opening your packs.
DeathXmon Alt Art (BT9-112)
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.
Alphamon: Ouryuken Alt Art (BT9-111)
Alphamon: Ouryuken (BT9-111)
Alphamon: Ouryuken is the second SEC of the X-Record set, with the alt art likely to be the second most valuable card of the set. 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 both versions of the SEC, as it can digivolve for 3 from an Alphamon with Ouryumon in its Digivolution cards. Alphamon: Ouryuken has appeared in several Digimon series and movies, including Adventure tri, X-Evolution, Chronicle and Chronicle X.
Omnimon: Merciful Mode Alt Art (BT9-083)
Omnimon: Merciful Mode will be a special card in the X-Record booster. Not only because both versions show some impressive artwork of the debuting form, but because it will be incredibly useful in play. This card can be Digivolved from a red, blue, yellow or green Digimon, with the Digivolution cost being reduced to just 3 cost if it is Digivolving from an Omnimon card.
Alphamon Alt Art (BT9-066)
Alphamon has been having a lot of focus this year, with several new cards and forms being introduced into the Digimon Card Game, including the elusive ‘Ghost/Gold’ Alphamon, which was released in the Xros Encounter set released in Japan in May and will hit the English game in October.
Gaiomon Alt Art (BT9-068)
Gaiomon will come in handy within red, black or dual Greymon decks. In fact, It is treated as a Greymon card. The Digivolving effect of this card Depends on whatever colour card you have in its Digivolution. If a black Digimon is in Gaiomon’s Digivolution pile, you get to DeDigivolve one of your opponent’s Digimon. If there is a red Digimon, the keyword Blitz is activated, letting it attack regardless if the Digivolution caused your memory to pass 0 and end your turn.
Agumon X-Antibody Alt Art (BT9-008)
Agumon has become the mascot of the Digimon Card Game ever since appearing on the first promo card revealed for the TCG and the 0.0 promo folder that was handed out prior to the release of Special Booster 1.0. Although we have had plenty of Agumon cards so far, this is the first time we are seeing its powerful X-Antibody form.
WarGreymon X-Antibody Alt Art (BT9-016)
WarGreymon has been a Digimon who has seen a lot of coverage in the Digimon Card Game, from main sets to tournament cards. With the inclusion of the X Anti-Body form, it’s refreshing to see the fan favourite Digimon in a different light. In this alt art, we see the Digimon seemingly defying space and time, charged with blue energy. WarGreymon X Anti-body will be part of the new X Anti-body Agumon chain coming with the X-Record set.
Ordinemon (BT9-082) Alt Art
Many will remember Ordinemon from the Digimon Adventure tri film series. Ordinemon is the result of Ophanimon Falldown Mode and Raguelmon DNA Digivolving into the dark and powerful Ordinemon. The artwork for this Digimon is haunting – appearing more like a character from a horror movie rather than a Digimon.
