Yu-Gi-Oh! Return of the Duelist
The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game booster set, Return of the Duelist, is the latest set for Yu-Gi-Oh! that features new cards. There are over 100 new cards in total! Among the new cards, there are 48 commons, 20 rares, 14 super rares, 10 ultra rares, and 8 secret rares. These cards introduce something new to the game. For example, Prophecy monsters are a new kind of spellcaster that works with Spellbook spell cards to quickly overwhelm your opponent. Prophecy monsters include the Spellbook Magician of Prophecy, which searches for Spellbook cards in your deck and puts it in your hand and the High Priestess of Prophecy, which can destroy any card on the field by banishing a Spellbook from your hand or graveyard. Spellbooks include the Spellbook of Power, which can pump up your monsters and get more spellbooks into your hand.

Other new archetypes include Chronomaly cards, which are monsters from an alternate timeline, Madolche cards, which returns destroyed cards to your deck or hand instead of going to the graveyard, and super powerful Elemental Lords, which can only be special summoned by having exactly five specific attribute monsters in your graveyard.
Among the secret rares for this set, there are some amazing cards. Superdimensional Robot Galaxy Destroyer is a huge 5000/2000 XYZ monster that can destroy all the spells and trap cards on your opponent’s side and prevent them from chaining in response to the effect’s activation. Advance Zone is a spell card that gets better as you tribute summon in a single turn. It can destroy set cards, draw you more cards, or grab a monster from your graveyard.
