Konami has shared the Super Rare variant reprint cards that will be included in the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Cybernetic Horizon Special Edition release.
Konami teased the release in April (see “Konami Plans ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Advent Calendar’”), but only said there were two Super Rare variants of sought-after cards and one of to two Super Rare variant preview cards from the fall booster set.
The Super Rare variants have been revealed to be either Number 38: Hope Harbinger Dragon Titanic Galaxy, or SPYRAL Super Agent.
The box include 3 Cybernetic Horizon Booster Packs, one of two Super Rare variants, and one of two Super Rare variant preview cards from the fall booster. MSRP is $9.99.
Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Cybernetic Horizon Booster Set releases on July 27 (see “’Yu-Gi-Oh! Cybernetic Horizon’ Booster”) and modernizes may popular Duelist deck themes from the past.
Wizards of the Coast has released box art for its upcoming Magic: The Gathering – Global Series: Jiang Yanggu vs. Mu Yanling.
Announced during the “mini-announcement” in February (see “New Products on the Way for ‘Magic: The Gathering'”), the Global Series product brings a world perspective to Magic with a team of artists, writers, and folklorists from a specific country (in this case, China) to craft a new Magic story rooted in the aesthetics and mythology of their home. Global Series products include two 60 -card decks, including two new foil Planeswalker cards, a foil double-sided token, and an informational insert. MSRP is $29.99. Release is planned for June 22.
This product will release shortly after the new Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2019 (see “‘Dominaria,’ ‘Core Set 2019’ and ‘Challenger Decks'”).
On October 5, Konami will release the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game: Legendary Hero Decks boxed set, which will include three complete pre-constructed decks.
The three decks included in the Legendary Hero Decks set each feature a different theme:
The “Fulfill Your Destiny!” deck is designed after the deck used by the character Aster Phoenix. This Destiny Hero deck features Link Monsters and Fusion Monsters to power through defending monsters.
“Return of the Aesir!” brings Thor, Loki, and Odin back into the game, and includes Team Ragnorok monsters, high attack Synchro Monsters like the Ascension Sky Dragon, and a Link Monster designed to help bring Aesir monsters into play.
The third deck, called “The Phantom Knights Strike Back!” is built around Xyz Summoning and Trap cards, as well as abilities that take effect once cards reach the Graveyard. It also includes a new Phantom Knight Link Monster.
The Legendary Hero Decks boxed set comes with a total of 150 cards. Each deck has 40 cards plus a 10 card Extra Deck, including 5 Ultra Rare and 45 Common cards. MSRP has not yet been announced.
The Legendary Hero Decks will be proceeded by the White Dragon Abyss set by one week (see “‘White Dragon Abyss’ Brings More ‘Legendary Duelists’ to ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’”), which itself will release one week after Konami hosts the 200th Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event (see “Three City Blitz for 200th ‘YCS’”).

Temmet was on of my commander decks in 2017 because it seemed like a cool idea to double-dip on the value end. (he dies, you eternalize him, then you put him in the command zone and repeat — basically he would cost 5 mana between each commander tax if you emblamed him). While he was prety fun to play with the token theme, he was far from being really good. In brawl, where the format seems more aggressive, his ability can be more relevant (we hope).
Here are a few brews I found for Temmet Brawl decks while scouring the ‘net.

There are obvious similarities between the lists, but it’s funny that even with a limited card pool that is Standard – we get some cool variety within the same commander. Overall it’s quite an inexpensive undertaking to build and play this. It’s combar oriented with some incremental value and a few ‘get back in the game’ cards like Fumigate. I’ll undoubtedly be crafting my own version soon using these ones for some inspiration (I’m quite partial to Embalm/Eternalize and God-Pharaoh’s Gift)
