- Main: Timeline/Twinpact Series
It is a block that continues its focus on the races introduced in the previous block.
- It introduces the Twinpact, a card type that is both a creature and a spell. They can be summoned or cast for either of their costs.
- Small amounts of Dragon creatures with a Master Dragon race have appeared on Jokers and Light Civilization cards.
- The races formerly introduced have gained new traits.
- The Jokers race has continued to have creatures in the Fire Civilization. They later also appeared in the Nature Civilization and gained the Jokers Change keyword.
- Metallica paired with the Sabakist race as well as Judgment Emblems continue.
- Mafi Gang release more cards that also have the Magic Tool race, giving support to the Master Dolszak race and including more cards with the Gate of Moonless Night ability.
- Gransect creatures have a new Mach Fighter ability, allowing them to attack untapped creatures on the turn they are put in the battle zone.
With the release of the new starter decks, the Jokers (deck) was reinforced by Gunbutler Great Seven, which made a 3 turn kill possible. Jobato De Runo became useful in combo with Jhot Gun Joragon, but also on its own as a shield trigger.
Vomirror, Darma further strengthened the De Szark (deck), making it a force in the metagame. While Dogiragon Buster, Blue Leader had a hard time getting around Onikamas, Strange Flow, a Gate of Moonless Night counted as a summon and thus could bypass Onikamas.
While the Jokers deck had found a new finisher in Jhot Gun Joragon, it was still being set back by a timely Kanashimidomino, Destruction Demon Dragon or G.W.D, Rumble Machine, which were being seen more often.
Water Fire Dogiragon Buster became faster with Balchuris, Dragon Armored, which could bring in a new attacker after a second attack. With Platina Walsura S, it also had a good amount of draw and beatdown, while Onikamas, Strange Flow acted as an evolution bait or dealt with other rushes.
While the previously crippled Rosia Miradante had been reinforced by Kirazeus Savark, Redzone had also been reinforced by The Bike, Runaway / Bunbun Burst. Ironically, both decks had found good use in Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff.
Due to Dragment Innovation getting restricted, Jabbaranga Loop resorted to the progression of Pirates Charger>Necrodragon Bryzenaga>Girigazami, Groaning Iron Arm, as well as abusing more Super Shield Triggers.
Furthermore, previous meta forces had managed to return to the scene, such as:
- Redzone, which while inferior to Water Fire Dogiragon Buster, it could abuse the bounce of Onikamas, Strange Flow in order to unseal Dokindam X, The Legendary Forbidden much faster.
- Water Darkness Nature Shakogairu, which now could resist to rushes a bit better and had adapted Lost Soul to deal with controls.
- Gale Vesper, with the reinforcing from Tamatango Panzer which could help it get around Jokers rushes.
Out of the twinpact cards, Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff and Kuromame Danshaku / Hakumai Danshaku proved as being highly flexible and adaptable in almost any deck. Meanwhile, Luginus, Dragon Armored Doctor / God Hand of Hell and Rousseau Montes / Monte Scale Sign reinforced loop decks.
On the April 2018 Grand Prix, while the winners were Water Darkness Discard, Rosia Miradante and Five Color Faerie Miracle, many players had been seen using De Szark decks. It was at this tournament that Trio Dogiragon Buster and Growth Miradante had become popular.
Then a new deck centered around Miradante Twelve, Time Pope appeared, using Chengza, Dragon Armored Ship / Fourth of the Six Bizarre ~Earth Breaking Waterfall~ as Revlution Change bait, in the Light Water Nature combination - Chengza Dante.
While Dogiragon Buster already had strength with its new Trio Dogiragon Buster deck, its synergy with Doremi, Time 1 and Sido, Time 3, as well as their ability to be evolution baits for Platina Walsura S led to the birth of Light Water Fire Dogiragon Buster.
To counter this, both Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff and Oriotis, Control Wings were used in Southern Renaissance (deck). In addition to those, some even added Defense Armor, Absolute Fear, in order to have 12 cards that would deal with Dogiragon Buster.
With the new Hall of Fame update, Victorious Apache Urara, Platina Walsura S, Rainbow Gate and Niyare Get, Zero Trick were restricted, weakening Water Fire Dogiragon Buster, Growth Miradante, Dogiragon Buster 3 turn kill and Jokers (deck). However, Buster decks began resorting to Retisha, Guide of Victory to make up for Apache Urara's restriction, while Jokers decks resorted to Gayoushin and Helcopta for draws.
With the release of DMEX-02, a new version of Mystery Cube appeared as Kabutorial Kuga / Mystery Disaster, which along with Nazomaru, Strongest Insect had been adapted in a new version of Chain Grasper Loop.
Although DMBD-05 and DMBD-06 were mostly regarded as useless, Aegis Boost, Matchless Dragon Saint had proven as a strong defense and Revolution Change card in Kaiser "Blade Demon", while Triguard Charger was adapted in Bryzeshoot.
Nature Jokers had appeared, with a new ability known as Jokers Change.
Megaboost Churis / 「Crazy Suicide Tactics!」 had been used in Gogogo Brand (deck), Rensatsu no Bangetsu Hand had been used in Dormageddon X, while Durinri, Darma and the new Water Magic Tools were used in De Szark (deck).
Meanwhile, at 2 block tournaments, Savark decks had been dominating due to the new Judgment Emblem Z, as well as the strong synergy between Savark DG and Savark Calibur, Ghiramessiah. Besides this, decks with Crash Head, Victorious Dragon Armored had also been going strong.
With the release of DMEX-03, Dangerdeon, Super Mechanical Trap / Hell Utopia's Trap Revelation had enforced even more the "Trap" spell subtype, in combo with Hyper Gigatack / Gigatack Hyper Trap, Na Turalgo Danger / Natural Trap and Drap, Escalden / Maxcargo Trap, thus leading to the creation of VV-8 Gigatack Jolly.
Deshibuko Guchipa, Zenith of "Fist" was used in Gale Vesper, which had also adapted Memento Guardian Shrine, Prison Court of D for defense and Shakogairu, Water Academy No. 9 as an extra win condition.
