Death of the Turbo Pack

Tournament-exclusive packs have always been a big part of Yugioh. At first, they were the only way to get exclusive cards like Mechanicalchaser and Morphing Jar. Later on, it was also a way to get great reprints. The latest iteration, the Turbo Pack, is the best way to foil out your deck with cards like Dark Hole and Book of Moon getting rarity bumps.

With a new tv series comes a new pack. Astral Pack is looking better than Tournament Pack, Champion Pack, and Turbo Pack combined. Instead of having 1 Rare and 2 Commons per pack, the Astral Pack guarantees 1 foil per pack from a set of 25 cards including 3 Ultimate Rare and 10 Super Rare cards. Confirmed cards include

Ultimate Rare - Tsukuyomi
Super Rare - Kagemusha of the Six Samurai
Super Rare - Terraforming
Super Rare - Mask Change
Super Rare - The Gates of Dark World
Common - Swift Scarecrow
Common - Thunder of Ruler

If you haven't read it already, Kevin Tewart has written up a great little history of the Tournament Pack which you can read HERE. I highly recommend checking it out.
