The Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG’s annual Tin release always blows away expectations, and this year it’s better than ever.

Stack it with the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories and the 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles to build the entire tablet for display!

Jesse Anderson’s Crystal Beasts are back! New Spell and Trap Cards make it easier to unleash Jesse’s signature ace monster, Rainbow Dragon. Activate them on the field to claim powerful effects or use them from the Graveyard. A new Spell lets you destroy a Crystal Beast monster and turn it into a Continuous Spell to Special Summon a Crystal Beast Token, offering another “Crystal Beast” name to fuel your Summons. Then, banish that Spell Card from your Graveyard when one of your monsters is turned into a Continuous Spell to make another Special Summon! The first new Trap Card Special Summons 2 Crystal Beasts from your Spell & Trap Zone and gains you Life Points equal to their combined ATK. You can also banish it from your Graveyard to check the top card of your Deck, adding it to your hand or Special Summoning it if it’s a Crystal Beast!
Even better, a new Counter Trap can negate the effect of any Spell, Trap, or monster effect and destroy the negated card! Crystallize one of your monsters to control the Duel, and when this Counter Trap’s in your Graveyard, you can use it to turn another Crystal Beast from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard into a Continuous Spell. Structure Deck: Legend of the Crystal Beasts also introduces a new form of Rainbow Dragon, one that can have as much as 11000 Attack Points and can wipe the entire field to Special Summon back your banished Crystal Beasts! Combined with the power of Crystal Beast Rainbow Dragon in Ghosts From the Past: The 2nd Haunting, Crystal Beasts are more powerful than they’ve ever been. And Structure Deck: Legend of the Crystal Beasts is packed with fan-favorite cards from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, awesome reprints of popular tournament cards, and three special Token Cards you won’t find anywhere else.
Structure Deck: Legend of the Crystal Beasts arrives September 30, and each comes with 5 Ultra Rares, 1 Super Rare, 40 Commons, 3 Token Cards in various rarities, and 1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide. MSRP: $10.99 per box.
If you’re looking to upgrade your Speed Duel Deck, look no further than Speed Duel Tournament Pack 4! Filled to the brim with foil upgrades to popular Speed Duel powerhouses, you can find Yugi’s signature Breaker the Magical Warrior and blow away your opponent’s backrow in Super Rare fashion alongside deceptively powerful monsters like Newdoria, also as a Super Rare. Even the iconic Mind Crush makes its return reaching the heights of Ultra Rare, ready to rip apart your opponent’s strategy before it even hits the field!
If you’re Speed Dueling at an Official Tournament Store, competing in Remote Speed Duel tournaments, or even at a largescale Organized Play Event, you’ll have the opportunity to earn boosters of Speed Duel Tournament Pack 4.
