Pack 1: Shobu's Passionate Friendship Bolshack pack

This pack mainly focuses on Shobu Kirifuda's iconic trump Bolshack Dragon. However, since Bolshack Dragon is a very basic and weak card (which is possibly intended as an object to evolve Überdragon King Bolshack from), Bolshack NEX is the actual star of the pack. Bolshack Lupia is good deck search Bolshack support while Uberdragon King Bolshack is a quick finisher. Bolshack Fire is also good removal and support for the Bolshack name category. Since a NEX card was reprinted, two basic Lupias were also added. This pack was featured in the Versus Revolution season of the anime by using the same combination of Bolshack NEX and Bolshack Lupia.

Pack 2: Shobu's Sengoku Musha training pack

Shobu's trumps from the Star Cross and Fighting Edge manga series, the "Musha Dragon" cards, have been reprinted.

A new creature was released: Sword Flash Bolmeteus Musha Dragon, which is basically a miniature Gaial Mobius, Victory Emperor.

But besides name and name category support, these cards also received Dragon Gear - Sengoku Topper Armor and Dragon Gear - Zangeki Mach Armor which are good cost reducers.

Pack 3: Zakira's Heavy Death Metal Descending pack

This pack focuses on Zakira's trumps from FE - Heavy Death Metal. A new incarnation of Death, Destruction God appeared - Deathperado, Destruction God, costing less than the original and having a fairly strong removal effect. However, since Heavy, Dragon God was in the Hall of Fame, this decktype was pretty hard to use at its release. But Necrodragon Dobolzack was reprinted (for the first time with black borders), possibly to help bring out Heavy quicker. Deathmeta Lupia appeared as God support, which has good synergy with Heavy.

Beware when using Deathperado in place of Death as unlike Death, Deathperado has no removal resistance and your opponent is free to do anything to it.

The Heavy, Dragon God and Metal, Dragon God in this pack have foil on them.

Pack 4: Zakira's All Delete pack

This is another Zakira pack which is Phoenix themed. The core of the pack is Poppo Juvira, Winged God-destroyer, which is a very strong Phoenix and graveyard support. Supernova Apollonus Dragerion and Death Phoenix, Avatar of Doom were reprinted since they got Juvira's support. Also, even though it was featured recently in DMD-25, Necrodragon Odol Needle has been reprinted again. All Delete is a powerful finisher when a deck is designed to utilize it before the opponent can finish its caster off. This pack was featured in the Versus Revolution season of the anime.

Pack 5: Hakuoh's Perfect Duel pack

Hakuoh's pack is focused on his main trump card Alcadeias, Lord of Spirits.

All three Lord of Spirits from this pack are foiled and they are all centered around the combo of Alca Kid, Holy Elemental and Holy Awe. Even though it was featured recently in DMD-24, Perfect Galaxy, Immortality Elemental was reprinted again. However, the Shield Force symbol got misprinted with a Silent Skill one.

Pack 6: Kokujo's Black Reaper pack

Kyoshiro Kokujo's pack is focused on his main trump card Ballom, Master of Death.

Just like Hakuoh's pack, all three Lord of Demons creatures are foils. The new incarnation of Ballom - Ballom Ross, Lord of Demons is the first incarnation of this creature to feature a discarding effect. Both Reaper Scream and Barlowe, Devil Priest are good support for graveyard and evolution creature strategies that feature the Ballom name category.

The original Ballom is useless in this pack as it has been outclassed by a variety of creatures, including Ballom Emperor, Lord of Demons and Killer the Kill, Revolution Demon King. However, the latter does not receive support from Barlowe.

Pack 7: Shori's Great backing pack

Shori Kirifuda's pack is focused on his main trump card Bolberg Cross Dragon.

A new incarnation of Bolberg Cross Dragon which features Samurai Generation appeared - Bolberg "Shori" Dragon. Great Earth has great synergy with the Bolberg name category and Ultimate Equipment - Victory Soul, but regretfully Bajula's Soul was not reprinted.

Pack 8: Mimi Tasogare's Hell Punch pack

Mimi Tasogare's pack is focused on her trump card from the manga Astral Reef.

A new version of it appeared - Astral Super Reef which is the first successful attempt in remodeling the nefarious Astral Reef which is known as one of the most broken cards in the game after 3 failed attempts. It has heavier attack and higher cost, but it grants its 3 draw ability to your Cyber Viruses, causing the most basic of Marine Flowers to become forbidden draw cards. Additionally to the Revolution (block)'s Cyber Virus Kai race, older Cyber Virus creatures were reprinted. Moreso, the reprint of Streaming Shaper was welcomed, as it is strong support for Mono Water decks.

Pack 9: Esmeralda's Miss Universe pack

Esmeralda's pack is focused on The Universe Gate and Ultimate Galaxy Universe, which feature Extra Turn and Extra Win effects. Supernova Grand Cross Absolute Cure features shield addition effects which serve to stall until you are able to gain extra turns and eventually win. Universe Lapia also serves to allow The Universe Gate give you three Extra Turns. Unfortunately, Supernova Mercury Gigablizzard is not reprinted as the pack is completely centralized on speeding up a universe extra win.

Pack 10: ???'s No Data pack

Duema Land President's pack features No Data, a new creature with the ??? race. While it is a very typical water system creature which are infamous for their instability, it allows the player to manipulate their shields at least once before going down. With a good defense for it such as Petrial Flame, the player can consistently set up a minefield.

Unidentified Objective is a name reference to Unidentified and is also basically the shield trigger version of Dragment Innovation, and will enable you to semi-bypass Hall of Fame restrictions and turn potent spells such as Miraculous Plague into nightmarish landmines. All other cards in this pack belong to the Hall of Fame, except No Data. Of course, Unidentified Objective is now in the Hall of Fame as well.

Also, Unidentified Objective's illustration may offend some people so watch out when you display that card to others.
