Crush your opponent with new Samurai monsters and Elemental Hero Neos combos! We review all the cool cards in the new Strike of Neos set for the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game!

The Strike of Neos set for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game is here! It packs 60 new cards into nine-card booster packs and it's loaded with awesome samurai warriors, elemental hero combo cards, spells, traps and more. How solid are these new cards? Gary has the 411 for Yu-Gi-Oh! card game duelists with his Yu-Gi-Oh! card game review!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos - Cards and Combos

This new set is loaded with new cards and a lot of them are excellent! Here's the scoop on what's up and what they do.
  • Samurai - These new monsters team up to kick butt, especially if you get their grand master and shogun!
  • Wipeout Monsters - If these weak creatures are destroyed, they wipe out everything that doesn't match their type.
  • Aliens, Neos, Elemental Heroes and Dark Realm - More cards for each deck theme means more combos!
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos - Dueling Dynamo!

    Wow. This set is full of cards that really kick butt! Four of the six samurai are really good, especially if you can get the Grandmaster of the Six Samurai or Great Shogun Shien cards. The Neo Spacian Ground Mole is an incredible creature and even looks cute! The Skyscraper 2 - Hero City field card is a huge boost for Elemental Hero decks and there are more cool cards too.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos - Cards That Suck

    The wipeout monsters are the biggest pile of stink in the set. They take two tributes to summon, are very weak, and you have to build your deck around them to make them work! Hero Medal is also super-lame and the new Alien and Dark World cards are ho-hum.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos - Home Run or Strike Out?

    It's not a grand slam, but the Strike of Neos set is still great! The samurai cards let new players build solid decks while the rest of the cards give Yu-Gi-Oh! experts more cool combos to play with. If it was easier to get Grandmaster of the Six Samurai cards (they're super rare!) it would be even better!

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos Thumbs Up:

  • The six samurai and their bosses rule!
  • Neo Spacian Ground Mole = woo-hoo!
  • Lots of good combo cards for Elemental Hero and Neo Spacian decks.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos Thumbs Down:

  • The wipeout monsters suck rocks.
  • Super hard to get Grandmaster of the Six Samurai cards.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Strike of Neos Rating: 4
