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)
Jasco Games has licensed Capcom’s classic Street Fighter for a miniatures-based board game which is being offered exclusively to backers of its Kickstarter campaign. The game is expected to release next March.
Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is a card-driven tactical combat game featuring the characters from the classic arcade game. The characters move around the game board, which is filled with 3D cardboard terrain pieces that can be smashed by the fighters or used as obstacles. Cards determine which moves the fighters can make, with attacks and defenses resolved through the use of dice. The game will include one-on-one, free-for-all, team play, and boss mode variants.
Each character in the game is represented by a “collector’s scale” pre-painted plastic miniature ranging from 65mm to 85mm in height and mounted on a sculpted 58mm base, plus a unique 40-card deck of move cards.
The game will include 6 character miniatures plus 2 boss miniatures, 4 battle maps, an assortment of 3d terrain, 428 cards, 8 battle dice, 10 double sided character cards, 8 double sided player boards, and an assortment of game counters. Additional materials may be added based on stretch goals, along with add-on kits featuring additional characters.
Production will be funded through a Kickstarter campaign which has so far reached $612,596 from 3,122 backers (an average of $196.22 per backer) with 28 days remaining. Backer fulfillment is scheduled for March, 2019.
Jasco has announced that the game will not be offered through the trade. According to the Kickstarter campaign page, the “costs of manufacturing a game like this are extremely high” due to the quality, size, and quantity of miniatures and cards. The company plans to have a few copies for direct sale at conventions.
