Shadowclash of Blinding Night is the 4th booster pack in the TCG.


The main theme of the set involves the conflict of the Light and Nature civilizations against the Darkness and Fire civilizations, in particular the battle between the Light army led by Alcadeias, Lord of Spirits and the Darkness army led by Ballom, Master of Death.

As such, the set has a heavy civilization focus with many Light and Darkness cards (such as Milieus, the Daystretcher or Purple Piercer) being "hate cards" for the opposing civilization.

This set also focuses on cards with abilities that affect another civilizations, based on their Allied Civilizations.

Due to the focus on this battle, instead of the usual balance of card in the Set contents between civilizations, there are 15 cards each for both Light and Darkness (and 10 cards each for the other civilizations).

It was released alongside with the Shadowclash Collector Tin.

There are 5 artworks for this booster pack which include;
