Before we begin, I’ll point out that these are the newer packs that we’re opening. So, these packs could contain both a rare and a foil card!
- Water Omotics
- Armored Lizard
- Lady of Faith
- Masked Sorcerer (Rare)
- Solemn Judgment (Ultra Rare!)
- Electric Lizard
- Doma the Angel of Silence
- Launcher Spider
Masked Sorcerer is pretty worthless, but his ability to draw a card is pretty good. That is, if you ever get a chance to attack and actually deal battle damage to your opponent’s life points. Back when it was only this set and Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon (and the Yugi and Kaiba Starter Decks), though, this was actually a playable card. The card draw was definitely good. Later, there would be Toon Masked Sorcerer, which can attack directly with Toon World on the field. That’s a way better card.
Most of the other commons are normal monsters that were useable back in their day, Launcher Spider, especially. The only other common worth mentioning is Electric Lizard. Why do we care about an 850 ATK and 800 DEF monster? Well, when a non Zombie-type monster attacks him, that monster can’t attack next turn. That’s pretty nice flavor. Somebody ran three of these back in the day, I’m sure.
How would you get the most out of this Metal Raiders pack? Personally, I'd keep the Metal Raiders Mirror Force and call it a day. But, if you're a real value seeker, you could trade it for an Ultra Rare Solemn Judgment from Battles of Legend: Relentless Revenge and get $4+ of extra cards.
There you have it: a halfway decent Metal Raiders booster pack! Want me to open a certain pack? Let me know in the comments!
