Hello Carta fans, readers and randoms.

Today, I have written an article on Battle Pack: Epic Dawn but just before we get started I would like to mention I have never written an article before so if I am bad at this let me know, but don’t bash me. Thank you!

The Reprints!!!

One of the great things about this pack is that we get reprints of important cards that are very hard to find. A couple of realy good reprints came in this pack sush as Tour Guide From the Underworld, Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon, Tiras, Keeper of Genesis, Forbidden Lance, Fiendish Chain, Blackwing – Zephyros the Elite and many more. On another note, in this pack, Gem-Knight Pearl make his debut in TCG. Now here is something interesting, there are only 5 cards per pack, 36 packs per box and the set has 220cards, so if your looking for 1 rare in particular you might want to buy a few boxes or buy singles.


Pull Ratios

So, I had the chance to open a full case of Battle Pack: Epic Dawn and I can happily say that the pull ratios are fairly good. On average, there are 7 to 10 Tour Guides, about 5 Adreus and 5 Tiras in a case. This is only in a case; in a box the ratios are very weird. In 1 box, I pulled 1 Tour Guide. In the next box, I opened 3 Tour Guides. So from what I gather, on an individual level there are no guaranties, but in a case (a dozen boxes) there is a certain ratio, which is kind of cool. I’m not sure if this is 100 percent sure, but from the experience of some and myself there should be a certain number of the good cards you can get in a case.

The Experience of the Sealed Format

This past Tuesday, at Carta Magica, I had the chance to play a sealed format with Battle Pack: Epic Dawn. Konnami was right, every duel was epic! At first glance, I thought the sealed format for this pack was going to suck, but I was very wrong. I thought that the cards wouldn’t have good interactions with each other and the game would come down to the luckiest top deck, but no, it was truly enjoyable. I recommend trying this format if you are bored with the meta. Every one has a completly different deck. No game gets stale. Every one who went to the sealed had a realy good time playing with the packs or pulling realy good cards and awesome star foils!

Star Foils

Before the pack came out, I thought that the star foils were going to look like duel terminal cards. When I saw the star foils for the first time, I was kind of disappointed with them. It would have been really cool if they were more visible. In darker lighting, it looks like there is dirt on the card, but if you take the time to look at the card it look sparkly. The star foils were a good idea, but I think Konammi should improuve them.
