Starter Deck 7 Gallantmon and Starter Deck 8 UIforceVeedramon will be the first to not focus on the original Digidestined from the original Digimon series. Each deck has its own unique art style and several cards with mechanics that will come in handy within higher tier decks. In this article, we will take a closer look at the Gallantmon Deck and discuss the cards included.
Digi-Eggs & Level 3 –
In Starter Deck 7 Gallantmon, players will only have Gigimon as their Digi-Egg. This does mean that all of your Digivolutions that have come from the Breeding area will get the Inherited Effect that increases its DP by 2000 for each of your opponent’s deleted Digimon. Biyomon is a nice Blocker, but not being able to attack players seems a little strict, considering it only has an extra 1000 DP. Agumon’s Inherited effect helps increase your Digimon’s DP by a further 2000 DP, which will further help fuel this aggressive style deck.
Level 4 & Level 5 –
GeoGreymon and RizeGreymon’s effects that allow you to delete Digimon on play will not only help keep the board clear but will power themselves up if Gigimon is in their chain. If Agumon is beneath the card also, your Digimon will pack even more of a punch when going for your opponent’s security.
Level 6 –
This deck is seriously offensive with both ShineGreymon and Gallantmon both having Security Attack +1. Gallantmon can delete a Digimon with 4000 or less DP, or increase its DP by a further +3000. Either way, with Gigimon and Agumon beneath it, this Digimon powers itself up. ShineGreymon has Piercing, which allows you to blast through one of your opponent’s Digimon to check 2 Security Cards.
Option Cards –
Lightening Joust is a fantastic Option Card for just 1 cost, increasing a Digimon’s DP by a further 2000 DP and gaining Security Attack +1 if your security pile is less or equal to your opponent’s. Gaia Force and Atomic Blaster offer more ways to wipe out your opponent’s Digimon, saving your attacks for the Security.
Starter Deck 7 Gallantmon can be really punishing and can claim a quick win against the right deck. Of course, it does depend heavily on getting attacks through and has very little in the way of defence.
The starter decks coming after Starter Deck 7 Gallantmon will be themed on Imperialdramon and Mastemon, continuing the focus on specific Digimon chains, rather than the Tamers. Another major change with these Starter Decks is the removal of booster packs and the inclusion of 6 Bonus cards, which will be part of the Digimon TCG 1st Anniversary.
