Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel has been out for a few weeks now with no big updates so far. However, that doesn’t mean there is no content planned for the game. A user on Reddit by the name of “Nintendax” has data-mined the game files of Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel and has revealed plans for five new upcoming card packs. These packs include cards from the unreleased Dawn of Majesty, Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm and Brothers of Legend booster packs from the physical card game. Nintendax has a history of data mining Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel; he previously revealed a data mine that showcased the new tournament modes coming to the game.
In the newest data mine, the Nintendax pointed out that there will be five new packs coming to the game. The first pack is “Ruler’s Mask” with the tagline of “Experience various themes and summons!!” This pack also features Dramaturge of Despia, Despian Quaritis, The Iris Swordsoul, Starving Venemy Dragon and Antihuman Intelligence ME-PSY-YA. Four of these cards are from the Dawn of Majesty expansion, which introduced the Despia and Swordsoul archetypes. Although the main support for Swordsoul came in the next core expansion, Burst of Destiny, which currently has no data mined leaks for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel. Lastly, the fifth card, Starving Venemy Dragon, is from a set that just released in the physical card game, Brothers of Legend.
The second pack coming to Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is “Beyond Speed.” It comes with the tagline of “Experience the new Synchro themes!” The five featured cards in this pack are Shooting Majestic Star Dragon, Crystal Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, Baronne de Fleur, Hi-Speedroid Clear Wing Rider and Steller Wind Wolfrayet. These cards are from a mix of Dawn of Majesty as well as the Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm expansion. Many cards from Synchro Storm are already in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel; several of the cards in the Bird-Up deck came out in this expansion.
The remaining three packs are follow-ups to the previous data mine. These packs showcase the new Xyz, Synchro and Fusion tournament event modes. There are no new cards among the featured ones in these three packs, but each of these packs seems to be geared towards each summoning mechanic.
