Being the first English Yu-Gi-Oh set, it’s highly collectible. Even some of the commons are valuable!
Here we go:
- Meda Bat
- Basic Insect
- Terra the Terrible
- Dragoness the Wicked Knight (rare)
- Two-Mouth Darkruler
- Petit Angel
- King Fog
If only we could scale the packs and only open the heavier ones for foils…Then again, we actually have a good rare…
That’s right. Dragoness the Wicked Knight sees play because A) she’s an Instant Fusion target being a Level 4 or lower Fusion monster, B) she’s a Warrior, which is always a relevant tribe, and C) she’s Level 3. In this Gouki deck from 2018, she’s a key piece in summoning the Link monster Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights and the Xyz monster M-X-Saber Invoker, among other things.
Also, she used to see play in the famous Goat Control deck of 2005. So, with Goat Format being its own cool little format, this card sees play in most extra decks in that format, since you can use Metamorphosis to tribute your Sangan and get his effect while getting a 1200 ATK Fusion into play.
The eight other commons are normal monsters worth about $0.10 each. Most likely, if you actually opened this pack, you probably paid $10 or more for it. But if you paid $7 or less, you made out with a useful rare. From this set, that’s never a bad thing!
How would you get the most value out of this pack? I’d find a trade partner who’s looking for this fusion monster at a fair price and get some solid deck-building pieces in return. This is a case of “trading down” where you can end up ahead. Of course, were this a 1st edition pack, I’d be holding onto it for my retirement. These cards in 1st edition get so pricey!
Hope you enjoyed this virtual pack opening! If there’s a set you’d like to see me open, let me know in the comments!
