Recently, I received a special edition, four new booster packs set. In the set, was also a secret rare Riryoku card. Though there were not many rare cards in the pack, they were very efficient. I got a Gladiatorâ€™s Assault, Power of the Duelist, Forcec of the Breaker, and Phantom of Darkness booster pack.
Many of the cards in the set were Neos cards. There was a Instant Neo Space, Contact Out, and Hero Counterattack, some of the great Neos spells and traps. However there were also types of cards I had never seen before, the Alien cards. The Alien cards revolved around the usage of Alien counters. For instance, Alien Greyâ€™s effect you can place an Alien counter on your foeâ€™s monster and use Brainwashing Beam to take control of that monster.
Another great Alien combo is with Alien Grey and Alien Mother. When your opponent has a strong monster on his/her side of the field, flip summon Alien Grey on to the field. With Alien Greyâ€™s effect, you can put an A-Counter on one monster on your foeâ€™s side of the field. When it is your turn, destroy the monster with the A-Counter with Alien Mother. Due to Alien Motherâ€™s effect you can special summon the destroyed monster on to your side of the field. You then launch an attack barrage.
Though the cards were not so great, this booster pack taught me a lot of great fundamental techniques. There many great Alien combos I learned as well. This special edition proves that no matter how un-unique your cards might be, you can always do something positive with them.
