First, we’ll look at the monsters, starting with Wattaildragon.
Luster Dragon is a classic level 4 Dragon-type monster of the Wind Attribute. It has 1900 ATK and 1600 DEF. Despite not having an effect, it’s a solid monster to Normal Summon and can hold its own against plenty of monsters out there.
Hunter Dragon is a level 3 Dragon type Monster with the Dark Attribute. It has 1700 ATK but only 100 DEF. It’s a very aggressive monster, especially at only level 3.
So you might be wondering why there are so many Normal Monsters in here. Take note of their types: Dragon, Warrior, and Spellcaster. There is a good reason why they are in here.
The final five monsters in the deck are called Summoners, one for each Attribute much like the Empowered cards, with Dark still being an exception.
That’s it for the monsters. Now onto the Spell Cards.
To round out the spell cards we have: Lightning Vortex, Mystical Space Typhoon, Ego Boost, Axe of Despair, Lucky Iron Axe, Monster Reincarnation, Dark Factory of Mass Production, and Poison of the Old Man. You can click on each card’s name to find out more about it on Yu-Gi-Oh Wikia.
For the Trap Cards: Trap Hole, Sakuretsu Armor, Raigeki Break, Dust Tornado, Shadow Spell, A Hero Emerges, Soul Resurrection, Jar of Greed, Magic Jammer, and Seven Tools of the Bandit. Again, click the card name’s for more info.
Overall, the reprints I’m most excited to see among the Spell/Trap cards are Mystical Space Typhoon (which you can never have enough of), Monster Reincarnation (which is a good card for many decks) and Seven Tools of the Bandit, which is a Trap card that has really been coming back into style with the banning of Heavy Storm.
Taking a look at the deck as a whole, it introduces a bunch of new cards into the game, especially with the Summoner and Empowered monsters, plus obviously the two Pendulum monsters and the two Spell cards. The deck has some interesting synergies within it, and while the deck is not itself highly competitive, it’s a great starting place for players new to the game or returning after a long while to discover that there’s this Pendulum Summoning thing going on (like myself!)
But wait, the deck list might be finished, but there’s more! The reason they call this a Super Starter Deck is that it comes with two packs of five cards, as well! What’s in this pack? We'll review what you can get from those packs soon!
