Battle Pack 3: Monster League Review

IMG_1269What’s up guys Patrick here with another review for one of my favorite games ever Yugioh. My friends from Konami sent me over some packs of one of their new sets that just came out, Battle Pack 3. Now I had loved the previous sets of the battle pack series, and I had great expectations for this set. Now off the back looking at the card list I had some main cards that I wanted to get, like the forbidden items, herald of lights, breakthrough skill, pinpoint guard, and all the Xyzs you know staples. Now I know that these sets were made for sealed play, but I still also treat them like regular packs, still trying to get some cards for my decks and these series always gave me a better opportunity to do so. Since this set is almost all reprints, you all most likely know what the cards are and what they do, but this is the first Battle Pack set to release new cards in it that you can only get from this set. Cards like Quantum Cat, Swamp Mirrorer, and Typhoon are new to the series and could most likely see tournament play if the duelist know how to use them to their advantage in their monotype decks.
