Xros Encounter  – ‘Blue Flare’ Greymon and Decker cards

The Xros Encounter set will offer up a new and incredibly unique way to Digivolve in the upcoming booster, with the fusion (DigiXros) mechanic being implemented for the first time. Among the new Digimon debuting with this set is the new version of Greymon, which is also known as Greymon (2010),  as well as the Decker cards that use Greymon and MetalGreymon in their fusion Digivolutions.

Disclaimer: The cards included in this article are the only ones that have been revealed so far for this archetype. It is possible that more will be revealed in the coming months. 

Gaosmon
[When Deleted] You may play a LV4 Digimon with “Blue Flare” in its traits from your hand without paying for its play cost suspended.
MailBirdramon
[On Play] If you have a [Christopher Aonuma] in play, you may return 1 [MetalGreymon] from your trash to your hand. If you don’t have a [Christopher Aonuma] in play, you may play one from your hand without paying its memory cost.
[On Deletion] <Save> (You may place this card under 1 of your Tamers as its bottom digivolution card.)

Inherited: [When Attacking] (Once Per Turn) If this Digimon has [Blue Flare] in its traits and your opponent has 2 or more Digimon in play, unsuspend this Digimon.

Xros Encounter
MetalGreymon
<Material Save 2>
[On Play] This Digimon gains <Rush> for the turn. Then, if you DigiXrossed, 3 of your opponent’s Digimon with a number of digivolution cards less than or equal to this Digimon cannot attack or block until the end of your opponent’s turn.
([DigiXros -2] [Greymon] x [MailBirdramon])

MetalGreymon
<Material Save 2>
[On Play] This Digimon gains <Rush> for the turn. Then, if you DigiXrossed, 3 of your opponent’s Digimon with a number of digivolution cards less than or equal to this Digimon cannot attack or block until the end of your opponent’s turn.
([DigiXros -2] [Greymon] x [MailBirdramon])
Christopher Aonuma
[Start of Your Turn] If you have 2 or less memory, set your memory to 3.[Your Turn] When you would play a Digimon card with DigiXros requirements, by suspending this Tamer, you can also place cards from under your Tamers as digivolution cards when you DigiXros.
[Security] Play this card without paying its memory cost.

Xros Encounter
Greymon
[On Play] Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Add 2 cards with [Blue Flare] in their traits from among them to your hand. Place the remaining cards at the bottom of your deck in any order. If you have a [Christopher Aonuma] in play, you may return 1 [MetalGreymon] from your trash to your hand instead.
[On Deletion] <Save>

In the Digimon Fusion (Xros Wars) anime, Greymon is incredibly loyal to its Tamer, Christopher Aonuma. MailBirdramon will allow you to recycle a MetalGreymon from your trash if you have a Christopher Aonuma in play, and if you don’t, you get to play the Tamer for free from your hand. This will help you get your MetalGreymon out faster, by using the MailBirdramon and a Greymon for a DigiXros (fusion). Speaking of Greymon – this card has a fantastic search ability for two cards with the  ‘Blue Flare’ trait from the top 4 cards from your deck, which is ideal as all the Digimon in this archetype have this trait. Greymon also lets you recycle a MetalGreymon from your trash if Christopher Aonuma is in play. When MetalGreymon is played this way, it stops your opponent from blocking or attacking until the end of their next turn, which is a great way to slow your opponent down. 

Xros Encounter
Deckerdramon
[On Play] <Draw 1>. Then, for each of your opponent’s digimon, <draw 1>.
[On Deletion] <Save>
Inherited: [All turns] While your opponent has 2 or more digimon in play, this digimon gets +1000 DP.

Xros Encounter
DeckerGreymon  
<Armor Purge>
[On Play] [When Digivolving] You may place 1 Digimon card with [Blue Flare] in its traits from your hand or from under your Tamer to the bottom of this Digimon’s digivolution cards. Then, if this Digimon has [Deckerdramon] in its digivolution cards, 1 of your opponent’s Digimon cannot attack or block until the end of your opponent’s turn.
[(DigiXros -2) [MetalGreymon] x [Deckerdramon]]

Deckerdramon is another Digimon that can be used with MetalGreymon to reduce its play cost via a DigiXros (fusion)  into DeckerGreymon. Deckerdramon lets you replenish your hand by drawing as many Digimon your opponent has in play and will increase your DeckerGreymon’s DP by +1000. DeckerGreymon will let you add a Blue Flare card to the bottom of this Digimon’s Digivolution pile, which could add another handy Inherited effect to the Digimon, and will prevent your opponent from attacking or blocking until the end of their turn. 

Xros Encounter
Blazing Memory Boost!
[Main] Reveal the top 6 cards of your deck. Add 2 cards with [Blue Flare] in their traits among them to your hand, and you may play 1 [Christopher Aonuma] among them without paying its memory cost. Place the remaining cards at the bottom of your deck in any order, then place this card in your Battle Area.
[Main] <Delay> (Trash this card in your battle area to activate the effect below. You can’t activate this effect the turn this card enters play.
-Gain 2 memory.

Plasma Decker Launcher
If your opponent has 2 or more Digimon in play, the play cost of this card is reduced by 2.
[Main] Return one of your opponent’s LV6 or higher Digimon to your opponent’s hand.
[Security] Return one of your opponent’s Digimon to your opponent’s hand.

When it comes to the Option cards of this set, Blazing Memory Boost! Is the only one specifically tailored to the chain,  while Plasma Decker Launcher is more versatile, Blazing Memory Boost allows you to search out and keep 2 cards from the top 6 cards of your deck, as well as play a Christopher Aonuma Tamer for free. Like other Memory Boost! Cards, this one has the ‘Delay’ keyword, allowing you to gain 2 memory at a time that best suits you. Plasma Decker Launcher can be played for a reduced cost of 2 if your opponent has 2 or more Digimon in play, which will knock it down to a 5 cost play. When played or attacked in Security, this card can help clear the field by sending one of your opponent’s level 6 Digimon back to their hand. 

Xros Encounter will be the 10th main booster set of the Digimon card game and will focus on the Digimon Fusion series, which was known as Xros Wars in Japan. Not only will several Digimon make their debut for the first time, but the brand new DigiXros (fusion) mechanic will shake things up as an alternative way to get your strongest Digimon in play.
