So far, under Yugioh Zexal’s one year run, there have been some good booster packs. While Photon Shockwave was decent (Generation Force was a god awful pack), the last two packs, Order of Chaos and Galactic Overlord, have contained some really great cards. However, none of these packs compare to Return of the Duelsit, which easily tops all of the booster packs that have been released in Zexal. There is a simple reason: it features one of the coolest monsters of all time – Number 6: Chronomaly Atlandis!
Chronomaly Atlandis is an extraordinarily awesome monster. Not only is it arguably the strongest monster to be introduced to Zexal, its artwork/design is amazing! Atlandis is this humanoid creature with legs made of magama with rocks as his abdominal and an upper-body made up of volcanoes! If that isn’t scary enough, its effect puts the ace in the hole! When Atlandis is Xyz summoned, you can equip an Xyz monster from the graveyard onto Atlandis. It gains half the attacks of the equipped monster; as it has 2600 attack points to begin, Atlandis is a statistical powerhouse. Then, once per turn, you can detach an Xyz material monster from Atlandis (two, level 5) to detach the equipped Xyz monster and slice your opponent’s life points in half. Talk about powerful! Atlandis could be the strongest monster in Zexal and the fact that it gave Yuma a hard time is a testament to its strength.
Of course, Return of the Duelist has other great features as well.It introduces Number 33: Chronomaly Machu Mech, which is a powerful monster in its own right, and provides support for the Chronomaly archetype. The one drawback of Return of the Duelist is its title monster, Heroic Champion – Excalibur. It has a decent 2000 attack/defense points and can double its attack until your opponent’s next turn, through its effect. That’s about it. However, with a variety of archetypes and one of the best monsters in Yugioh Zexal, this pack is a must buy.
