Time goes so fast doesn’t it? It feels like only yesterday I wrote my post about the release of the Ancient Prophecy booster pack (read here). Now, the most recent Yugioh booster pack, Stardust Overdrive, is almost here for TCG. Unlike Ancient Prophecy, Stradust Overdrive looks like a destructive booster pack, due to the fact it contains Majestic Star Dragon. Of course, one shouldn’t forget that the Earthbound Immortal, Wiraqocha Rasca is also part of the Stardust Overdrive booster pack. Realizing this, I felt Stardust Overdrive was going to be one strong pack.
Here is evidence for my claim above. Stardust Overdrive has new synchro monsters, it has the Majestic and Majestic Star Dragons, plus it contains the final Earthbound Immortals: Wiraqocha Rasca, Uru, and Ccarayhua. Also, Stardust Overdrive brings a new addition to the Synchrons with Quick Synchron. For duelists who use the Synchron Warrior monsters (for example Junk Warrior, Road Warrior, Nitro Warrior, and Turbo Warrior) Quick Synchron would be an amazing addition to your deck because he can be used as asubstitute tuner for the sychro summoning ofÂ a Synchron Warrior.
Now, we all know that Majestic Star Dragon is a really strong card, and it looks cool too. However, people aren’t really excited about the release of Majestic Star Dragon. What they really want is to see Wiraqocha Rasca, the strongest of the Earthbound Immortals. And why wouldn’t they? Wiraqocha Rasca’s effect makes him one of the strongest monsters in Yugioh history, not in Yugioh 5Ds, but in Yugioh history. Wiraqocha Rasca cannot be an attack target. When he’s played, you can return up to three cards you control to your deck. Your foe then discards the number of cards you returned and Wiraqocha Rasca gains 1000 attack points for each card your foe discarded from their hand ! If your foe discarded three cards, Rasca has 3100 attack points! Plus, he can attack directly, so you’ll be dealing alot of damage to your opponent every turn.
With cards like Wiraqocha Rasca, Majestic Star Dragon, and Quick Synchron, Stardust Overdrive seems like a really efficient pack as well as a good buy. I am glad that 5Ds hasbalanced it’s “Turbo Duel” style of play with the authentic, original Yugioh style of play. You can tell by the cards in this booster pack.
