Today Dec. 4, 2013 Konami announced "Legacy of the Valiant," a new "Yu-Gi-Oh!" expansion set that'll supercharge duelists decks. "Legacy of the Valiant" introduces several new themes to the game, including one centered around Plants. The upcoming set will allow duelists to "infuse their decks with the strength of the very land itself."

"Legacy of the Valiant" features the largest stockpile of Gravekeeper cards since appearing in any "Yu-Gi-Oh!" product since 2010's "Structure Deck Marik." It also features several brand new Monarch cards, following their re-introduction in "Shadow Specters," and a Ghost Rare version of the brand new Mobius the Mega Monarch.

According to an email we received from Konami there are several must have cards from the se. Evilswarm Exciton Knight is a deadly Xyz monster which can destroy every other card on the field and be played in any Deck. Those who like tricky Trap cards will want to get their hands on Shared Ride, which allows you to draw cards when your opponent adds cards from their Deck or Graveyard to their hand.

"Legacy of the Valiant" has additional weapons for players who enjoy Bujin and Ghostrick strategies, along with more cards from the "Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL" animated series.

The complete 100-card set features:

  • 48 Common Cards
  • 20 Rare Cards
  • 14 Super Rare Cards
  • 10 Ultra Rare Cards
  • 8 Secret Rare Cards

"Legacy of the Valiant" will be available on Jan. 24, 2014 in 9-card booster packs for an MSRP of $3.99 each. You'll be able to get a first look at the cards at "Sneak Peek" events on Jan. 18 and/or 19, 2014.
