The official TCG Konami page for the upcoming set Order of Chaos is now up, focusing mostly on the Inzector and Armor Ninja archetypes.
The most interesting featured cards, of course, are the TCG exclusives. Unlike the product page for PHSW, Konami was smart enough this time around to censor out the card effects, and name all the images on the site in such a fashion that their rarity would not be prematurely disclosed. As such, it is difficult to ascertain if a particular card is a rare or a secret rare, or if it's a common or a super. One can make an educated guess based on the card's playability of course, but an educated guess is still a guess nonetheless.
The 1st TCG Exclusive is revealed to be "White Dragon Ninja"
It's a "Ninja" card, and a Dragon type, so it is compatible with the Ninjitsu / Ninja line of support cards. Whether it sees any play will depend on its effect.
As a light attributed monster, perhaps a chaos variant could be developed, as Ninja Grandmaster Hanzo is a dark monster.
The next TCG Exclusive card is "Ninjitsu Art of Duplication"
In theory, this card would either create a token that mirror's a targeted ninja monsters stats, or alternatively special summon another copy of the same ninja from your hand/deck. It's purely speculation on my part, but I can see it being as such due to the name.
"Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon" 's effect has been summarized to state that it can be special summoned when one of your monsters is destroyed (whether by battle or by effect is unclear). Backing generic stats of 2200 atk and level 5, is it's name, which is far from generic. Interplanetarypurplythorny. Seriously? Despite it's evil looking artwork, I really don't know if I should be taking this card seriously.
Surprise! I guess Konami finally read through the Top Cut decklists from previous YCS events and realized that Tour Guide is an overpowered card that spearheads competitive yugioh as we currently know it.
So what did they do? Emergency semi-limit it? No, nothing of the sort. Suddenly announce that it will be reprinted in a months time in some new product? No, not that either.
This is purely conjecture on my part, but I could see a bunch of high-up Konami staff sitting down in the meeting room one day, twirling their thumbs and sipping green tea, while thinking about what they could come up with for the next set of TCG exclusives.
"So uh hey, that Tour Guide card, it seems kind of good"
"Oh kewl is that a bus in the background?"
"Hey, you're right!"
"Let's make it into a card"
"Should it be overpowered?"
"Probably. Also preferably a secret rare."
"Yes I think so too"
:) :) $$$
It's too bad the card art is too small, but I would lol if Sangan was one of the passengers on the bus.
Also, look for the next card in this series, to be created some time in the future, to be "Tour Bus Driver from the Underworld". Yea I said it.
