Dragon Ball Super TCG: Draft Box 03

Dragon Ball Super TCG: Draft Box 03

Last week, we got hype for the Magic: the Gathering Core Set 2019 Draft Weekend and this week we are going ham for Dragon Ball Super TCG's Draft Box 03!

Why is drafting awesome?

There are two major challenges when it comes to TCG play. 

  1. Finding other players who are into the same game and have decks ready to go. 
  2. Making sure you have balanced decks at your table. When one player has been collecting for a while, they typically outmatch newer opponents regardless of skill level. 

The best thing about buying a Dragon Ball Super draft box is that you and three of your friends can pool your money for the purchase and dig in together to create four fairly balanced starter decks right away and Bandai provides rules for tournament play that either allow you to award cards as trophies in various ways at the end of your game or keep the decks you drafted. Each box contains 4 foil versions of the same Leader card, so if you don't get the one you want, unfortunately you can't trade with a friend for the one you, but you can, of course, try your luck again with another box.

Aside from the four leader cards, each box includes 12 Colossal Warfare boosters, 12 Themed O2 boosters, a draft rules manual, and 1 sheet. For an example of how to draft cards, see Dragon Ball Super TCG's draft breakdown from Draft 01. Once you've opened all your booster packs and drafted your cards, you can run a 4 way round robin tournament right out of the box. 

Leader cards haven't been announced for this Draft Box yet and we are chomping at the bit to find out who could be lurking in these treasure chests! What leaders do you think we'll see in Draft Box 03!

Magic Core Set 2019 Draft Weekend: July 14th-15th 2018

Magic: The Gathering from Wizards of the Coast constructed play starts this Friday July 13th for Core Set 2019! We'll start seeing all sorts of new decks being played after that point featuring the cards for the season. Constructed decks take a lot of thought and typically require a larger monetary investment, so it can be an intimidating place to start for new players. Don't worry. We've got you covered with an event that's perfect to help you get started!

We are chomping at the bit for Draft Weekend which runs July 14th and 15th! One of the great things about a Draft is that everyone is on equal footing. You don't need to spend $1000 to build the perfect competition deck to enjoy the game at a draft. All you need to do is head to your local shop, pay a nominal fee for your draft entry (usually the cost of ~3 booster packs), and build decks from the ground up with other people at the table. Tables at a draft are typically made up of 8 players. You can see what they're building as they go and stick to a few colors yourself so you can fuel your spells with mana and counter the decks that others have built during the draft. 

You can expect your FLGS to be full to bursting with Magic players  this weekend so this should be a great event to jump into whether you're new to the game or a seasoned player who's chomping at the bit to get the new cards in hand.

If you've never been to a Draft Weekend and want to know what to expect, Wizards of the Coast released a great video that should get you up to speed.
