Catch the next wave of Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME monsters with Starter Deck –Link Strike–! Link Monsters let you bring a brand-new level of domination to your Duels by mastering not just how you play your cards, but where you play them too!
Link Monsters start the Duel in your Extra Deck, and you Link Summon them to your field by sending face-up monsters you control to the Graveyard; each Link Monster will tell you exactly what kind of monsters you need and how many to use. Link Monsters don’t have a Level or Rank, or even a DEF stat. They can never be face-down or in Defense Position; they’re always face-up and in Attack Position, so you always know where their arrows point!
Arrows on the Link Monster are the most important feature because they point out the Monster Zones on the field they are linked to. Depending on their effects, a Link Monster could gain ATK for every monster in a zone it points to, or protect any monster in a zone it points to from being destroyed. The possibilities for Link Monster effects are endless, but effects aren’t the only great thing about Link Monsters!
Link Monsters also make it possible to control many different monsters Summoned from your Extra Deck, at the same time! Any adjacent Monster Zones a Link Monster’s arrows point to become available to Summon new monsters from your Extra Deck. Getting as many arrows pointing at your own zones as you can, while avoiding arrows pointing to your opponent’s zones, is a new and important element of strategy you’ll want to master with Starter Deck –Link Strike–.
Starter Deck –Link Strike– comes with 3 new, all-foil Link Monsters to add to your Extra Deck, plus a full Main Deck and a new Game Mat showing the new Extra Monster Zones. This set also introduces a brand-new Type of monster to join Dragons, Warriors, Spellcasters, and all the rest. Inspired by networking machinery, this new Type of monster takes today’s digital technology and turns it into Dueling technology!
Each Starter Deck contains:
• 38 Common Cards, 2 Ultra Rare Cards, 3 Super Rare Cards, 1 Beginner‘s Guide, and 1 updated Game Mat with new Extra Monster Zones
