The winds of victory are swift and sure with Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm. Three Yu-Gi-Oh! duelist-inspired strategies are getting power-ups in this set, and they all specialize in wind monsters. Fans can practice their synchro summons with Yugo’s Speedroid monsters — such as his iconic Clear Wing Synchro Dragon — or utilize Sherry LeBlanc’s ace monster, Chevalier de Fleur, to stop an opponent’s Spell and Trap cards. Duelists can also indulge in support cards courtesy of Lulu Lyrilusc’s strategy, or combine them with Tri-Brigade cards from Phantom Rage, Blazing Vortex, and Lightning Overdrive for epic hybrid combos. Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm will also include an elusive, Ghost Rare version of one card within its booster set of 56 cards, which contains 10 Rares, nine Ultra Rares, eight Super Rares, and 29 Commons.

Finally, the 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles builds upon the lore of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories with cards from Ignition Assault, Eternity Code, and more. It features the middle section of a mysterious Pharaonic tablet that regularly appears in the show. The battle of the Dark Magician and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon is carved onto the tin, and inside fans will find three new, World Premiere cards to give these monsters new power boosts. Like last year’s tin, this set has embossed and debossed sides as well as rimless lids, which allow the tins to be stacked on top of each other to build the entire Pharaonic tablet! The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles set will feature three extra-large Mega-Packs, each with one Prismatic Secret Rare, two Ultra Rares, two Super Rares, one Rare, and 12 Commons.

The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles will cost $19.99, while Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm cards will be $1.99 per pack. Fans should look out for more Yu-Gi-Oh announcements before the summer release!
