As mentioned a few days ago, there's a new Selection Pack in the shop: The Newborn Dragon! This pack doesn't introduce any new archetypes in the game, but it offers powerful support to some existing ones, like Albaz, Borrel, Swordsoul, Blue-Eyes, and more. Here's a breakdown of the cards in the pack, separated by archetype and sorted by card type.


Fallen of Albaz

The highlight of the pack. Technically speaking, there's a few archetypes here that work together. We have Branded, Dogmatica, Springans, Tri-Brigade, and, of course, the Albaz fusions. Oddly enough, Fallen of Albaz, the centerpiece of the archetype, isn't in the pack. You'll have to fork over 90 SR CP or pray from some nice pulls from the Master Pack if you want to get it. Keep an eye on the site for guides on this archetype, both in terms of gameplay and lore.

Blue-Eyes

As classic an archetype as you can get. This package focuses on expanding the Fusion side of the archetype with Blue-Eyes Tyrant Dragon and Ultimate Fusion, as well as making it easier to flood the board with Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon and Vision with Eyes of Blue.

Borrel

Another anime archetype, this time from a far more recent series. The Borrels rely on using their subarchetype, the Rokkets, to bring out powerful Dragons from the Extra Deck, usually Links. Borrelend Dragon is the only new card in the pack, but it's a powerful one.

Ghostrick

This archetype would've made a lot more sense in the October pack, since it's Halloween themed (actually, that also goes for all the Zombies in the pack). The deck makes use of the under-utilized and quite slow Flip Summon, and it gets some powerful new additions in this pack, especially with Ghostrick Shot.

Hellfire

Ok, something no note about these cards: The English name for this archetype is supposed to be "The Underworld". The names have been translated from the original "Hellfire [thing], [name]" to "[name], the Underworld [thing]" (you can see the difference by hovering over the cards in the table). We're calling them Hellfire because 1) there's a lot "the Underwold" cards that have nothing to do with these, and 2) it sounds cooler.

Thankfully, the cards themselves don't really rely on their names or have anything to do with each other, aside from Wyvern and Sleeper being able to fetch Ghost Fusion. The archetype in general is good support for Zombie decks.

Interestingly, none of the new cards have been released in the TCG yet, which is quite unusual, as most cards are in both formats before coming to Master Duel. The archetype has two other monsters in Master duel, Ghost Charon, the Underworld Boatman and Dragocytos Corrupted Nethersoul Dragon.

Odd-Eyes

Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon Overlord Card Image

Last of the anime archetypes on the list, Odd-Eyes focus strongly on Pendulum summons, with the Supreme King cards as a related archetype. Only one new card, in the form of Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon Overlord.

Swordsoul

We've talked about the Swordsoul archetype when it came out, and we even have a dedicated Combo guide for it. Now it gains the final few support cards, including a powerful Synchro Monster in Qixing Longyuan

A number of cards don't strictly fall into any of the above archetypes neatly. A good number of these cards are support for Dragon decks.
