Number Hunters

 

Number Hunters

Set Size 60

07/12/2013 Release and Legal Date

It’s time to hunt down some new Number Monsters for your collection – and for your Extra Deck!

 

Number Hunters is the single-biggest surge of new Xyz Monsters ever released at one time. This special, all-foil, 60-card booster set introduces 25 brand new Xyz Monsters, including 9 of the mysterious “Number” Monsters that so many characters are tracking down on the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL TV series.

 

You’ve seen Number Hunters on TV use these powerful Xyz Monsters in their Decks. Now you can do some Number Hunting of your own!

 

Number Hunters includes:

 

  • 25 new Xyz Monsters
  • 14 new Effect Monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL
  • 6 new Spell/Trap Cards from the Zexal Age
  • 5 new, non-Zexal cards, including some famous cards from the earliest days of the original TV series
  • 10 previously-released Zexal cards, reprinted as foil cards for the first time ever

 

 

 

Hunting Chaos

 

One of the most exciting things about this set is the number of Chaos Xyz Monsters! Chaos Xyz come in 2 varieties – “Number C” and “CXyz” (the “C” stands for Chaos both times).

 

Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy introduces you to a special Spell Card called Rank-Up-Magic Barian’s Force, the fastest way to turn ordinary Xyz Monsters into extraordinary “Number C” and “CXyz” monsters. Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy also included a small number of Chaos Xyz Monsters, but now Number Hunters gives you a whole army of them!

 

 

 

Work Hard, Play Hard

 

Rank-Up-Magic upgrades Xyz Monsters into “Number C” or “CXyz” monsters of the same Type, but 1 Rank higher. These super-charged Xyz Monsters are much stronger, get to steal an Xyz Material from an enemy monster, and if you rank-up using a ‘matching’ monster, they sometimes come with phenomenal cosmic powers!

 

Coach King Giantrainer has 2800 ATK and uses its Xyz Materials to let you draw extra cards and deal extra damage, but in return you have to skip your Battle Phase. But if you use Rank-Up Magic

 

 

…you get CXyz Coach Lord Ultimatrainer! It has 3800 ATK, it can’t be targeted by card effects, and you don’t have to skip your Battle Phase to use its abilities, so just let loose!

 

 

 

Vote for Norito – Moral Leadership, Working for You

 

Duels not going well? Maybe it’s time for some proven leadership. It’s time for Norito the Moral Leader!

 

Your opponent’s Spells and Traps can be big threats to your monsters, even during your own turn. But Norito knows how to negate them, destroy them, and then lead the way forward with his 2700 Attack Points!

 

But during your opponent’s turn, the biggest threat to your monsters is often your opponent’s own monsters and their effects, which means it’s time to…

 

 

… hold an election! Wait, no, it’s time to play Rank-Up-Magic to replace Norito with his running mate, CXyz Simon the Great Moral Leader! Simon is a tough talker against the threat of monsters to society. He has 3000 ATK and isn’t affected by other monster effects. And if you Summoned him by ranking up Norito, he can switch a monster to defense position and negate its effects. Now that’s effective leadership!

 

Try using Gagaga Magician with either Gagaga Child or Gagaga Girl (from Super Starter: V for Victory) to get the 2 Level 6 Spellcasters you’ll need to Summon Norito.

 

These are just two of the Xyz/CXyz pairs you’ll find in Number Hunters! You’ll also find organic battlecruisers, comic book heroes, massive orbital weapons, and more!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hunt is On!

 

It’s time to go Number Hunting! Nine new Number monsters have crash landed, and it’s up to you to find them! Take on the invincible warrior king Number 54: Lion Heart, keep your eyes on the skies for the swift-striking Number 44: Sky Pegasus, and be wary of the whirling dervish of swords, Number 74: Master of Blades! Number monsters come in all shapes, sizes, and Ranks. They could be anywhere, so here’s a handy list to what to look out for!

 

Number 44: Sky Pegasus Number 49: Fortune Tune Number 54: Lion Heart Number 57: Tri-Head Dust Dragon Number 63: Shamoji Soldier

 

 

 

Number 74: Master of Blades Number 85: Crazy Box Number 87: Queen of the Night

 

On Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, the Number monsters are protected from other monsters by virtue of their alien origin. Now you can add that power to your Number monsters, with Number Wall!

 

 

 

 

As long as you control Number Wall, nothing can destroy your Number monsters – except battle with another Number monster, just like on TV!

 

 

 

Decks You Might Already Have

 

The Number Hunters booster set also includes many cards for Decks you might already be working on, like Chronomaly monsters, Gimmick Puppets, and Heroic Challengers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, keep your eyes open for Box of Friends. This cards lets you Special Summon 2 monsters with 0 ATK or 0 DEF from your Deck. It’s a great way to set up an Xyz Summon, especially if you make a Deck heavy on 0 DEF monsters, which will be a new strategy this August when Judgment of the Light comes out!

20 Secret Rare Cards
40 Super Rare Cards
5 Cards per pack: 4 Super Rares + 1 Secret Rare

Are you ready to smash face with the biggest monsters that ever existed?

 

If you loved watching massive monsters slug it out on the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV show, then Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants is the set for you. When you play sealed-pack style with Battle Pack 2, you will live and breathe a clash of the titans like you’ve never experienced before!

 

When Giants Rule the Earth

High-Level monsters have always been the biggest, most popular, and most famous monsters around, including the baddest monsters of them all, the three Egyptian God Cards!

 

But despite all their power and their glory, the high Tribute costs of these monsters have always made them a risky strategy in tournament play.

 

War of the Giants finally brings these titans front and center, with a game environment designed specifically for them!

 

You’ll quickly find that the land of the giants has its own laws of the jungle:

 

  • High-Level Tribute monsters are king!

 

You’ll be able to Special Summon lower-Level monsters to help set things up, but the only way to get a goliath on the field is to obey the laws of nature, and Tribute Summon!

 

  • Trial by combat!

 

Effects that destroy cards are practically non-existent. Brush up on your battling skills, because if you want to get your opponent’s monster off the field, you have to beat it fair and square!

 

  • Every card counts!

 

Wage war with your Spell and Trap selection. You’ll have secret weapons to tilt the battle in your favor – but so will your opponent! Is he bluffing? Should you bait out his Spells and Traps, then go in for the kill? Or launch a frontal assault to overwhelm his monsters? The choice is yours!

 

Each card in the War of the Giants has been carefully selected, and weighed against other cards in the set. The outcome of a Duel will depend on strategy and tactics. Get ready to test and improve your skills, in the ultimate Dueling challenge!

 

 

 

Five Cards Per Pack

 

Just like the first Battle Pack, each pack of War of the Giants comes with 5 cards. You’ll get 1 Rare Card (with a glossy black card name) and 3 Common Cards, each chosen to fulfill a specific role in your Deck. Your fifth card will be a new type of shiny card called a Mosaic Rare. Your Mosaic Rare could be any card in the set, so it’s a true wild card.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: As befits their divine status, the three Egyptian God Cards are available only as Mosaic Rares! You won’t find them in your Rare or Common card slots.

Recap: What is Sealed Pack Play?

 

The hottest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG release in 2012 was Battle Pack: Epic Dawn, the set that finally brought sealed pack play to Yu-Gi-Oh!, after 10 years in the making!

 

Sealed pack play is how you take booster packs, and make them into a game by themselves.

 

Just get together with your friends (or rivals!) and split up some packs. Open your packs, make brand new Decks just from those cards you got, and start Dueling!

 

Everyone starts off clean. The only thing that matters is what you can do with the hand that’s dealt ya.

 

Of course, after you’re done playing, you’re still left with the cards from your packs. So you can walk away with some awesome cards for your regular Deck and collection. Think of sealed pack play as a way to open up booster packs like you always do, and get a ton of bonus fun while you’re at it! With 215 cards in Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants, no two Dueling experiences will ever be the same.

 

Sealed pack ideas:

 

  • Get 3 friends and split 1 box of Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants. Construct your Decks and duke it out round-robin style. The Duelist with the most wins at the end of the day is the winner!
  • Keep it going by making an internal league with your friends. Each time you get together, split up some more Battle Packs and add the cards you get to your league card pool. Everyone agrees beforehand to ONLY use the cards from their league Battle Packs. But you can change up your Deck from day to day, as long as you stick to using just those cards.

 

Besides Dueling with your friends, there will continue to be a ton of Battle Pack sealed pack events at local stores and major competitions, including special sealed pack versions of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series. Dueling sealed style with your friends is the best way to practice and sharpen your skills for sealed pack competition!

 

Now that sealed pack play is finally here, Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants will take it to the next level!

 

 

 

Each Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants pack contains 5 cards:

1 Rare Card (with glossy black title)
1 Mosaic Rare Card
3 Common Cards

Set contains 215 cards: 50 Rare Cards, 162 Common Cards, and 3 cards only available as Mosaic Rares. (All cards in the set are available as Mosaic Rares – 215 cards in all.)
