The first starter decks of the Digimon Card Game came with booster packs of the most recent booster set of the time. That all changed with Starter Deck 7 Gallantmon and Starter Deck 8 UlforceVeedramon, with Bandai swapping the pack out for six ‘Memory Boost’ promo cards. Now, players will have another way of obtaining these cards with the Next Adventure booster set.
The Memory Boost Cards –
The new Memory Boost cards bring a brand new mechanic to the game, ‘Delay’. This ability allows the player to play the card but choose when the secondary effect is activated. This will allow you to use it at the perfect moment, without paying any cost. Having the Memory Boost card sitting in wait could also make your opponent more hesitant when making plays, knowing you could pop the card’s effect at any time.
The effects of all six cards are exactly the same, only with the designated colour changed. It allows you to reveal four cards from the top of your deck and add one of the cards to your hand. The ‘Delay’ effect allows you to gain 2 memory when you are ready, which could be a game-changer if you need the extra memory to make a big play.
Starter Deck Memory Boost Cards –
Each of the promo cards that come with starter decks 7 and 8 has a uniformed comic book style illustration, with action text incorporated into them. Fans of the Digimon video games may find some of the scenes in the cards familiar, such Agumon pushing the rock as he trains up his stats and DemiDevimon standing beneath the waterfall.

Next Adventure Memory Boost Cards –
The Memory Boost cards will be receiving alternate art versions with some incredibly cute artwork of Digitama eating their favourite meals. These cards will come in Box Promotion Packs that will act as a second Box Topper for the Next Adventure booster set. These cards will not only see a lot of play in the upcoming meta but will also be highly collectable for their charming artwork.
The Next Adventure set will release on March 4th for the English Digimon Card Game and will focus on Digimon Frontier series and the Hybrid evolutions such as Susanoomon. If you would like to learn more about this set and the new mechanics it will introduce, check out our articles below –
