TCG Holiday Gift Guide 2017

This is the season for joy and happiness. Christmas will be here sooner than you will know it! Some people will be shopping for Christmas gifts at the very last minute. Every TCG gamer wants the best cards in the meta and their favorite cards. There have been many great releases this year from many trading card games. I am recommending great products to buy for your TCG gamer. This list features products from various games such as Cardfight!! Vanguard, DragonBall Z TCG, and Yu-Gi-Oh! My list is not in a particular order.

DragonBall Z Awakening

Awakening is the latest starter deck for Dragon Ball Z Trading Card Game by Panini America. I must say it is the best starter deck for the modern version of the game. You get one Main Personality set in each starter deck. The Main Personalities are Cell, Future Trunks, Gohan Goku, Mr. Satan, and Vegeta! The only bad character in the group is Mr. Satan. My favorite personality among the group is Future Trunks. Every Mastery is very good. Older Main Personalities work very well with the new Mastery cards as well. I pulled Future Trunks in my starter deck!

Yugi Moto Structure Deck

Yugi Moto Structure Deck features new support for the Magnet Warriors and reprints of Yugi's signature cards. Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl are reprinted in the structure deck. Magnet Yugi's deck is not as competitive as Kaiba's deck. However, it is a fun deck to build. Maybe the Magnet Warriors will continue to receive more new cards in the future.

 The Overlord Blaze Toshiki Kai



Dragonic Overlord is never ending. It is not too late to buy The Overlord Blaze Toshiki Kai. This legend deck was on top of my bucket list for 2016. This is the best deck on the market for Cardfight!! Vanguard. It is loaded with some of the strongest cards in the game. The main deck is complete and you get eight cards for your extra deck. You get two copies of  Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Overlord "the Ace". Dragonic Overlord "The Legend" is an amazing card.

Seto Kaiba Structure Deck


Seto Kaiba Structure Deck is one of the best products in my list. This structure is great for a competitive duelist. The deck contains support for Union monsters and Blue-Eyes White Dragon. The best cards from the deck are the new ABC Union monsters. A-Assault Core, B-Buster Drake, and C-Crush Wyvern combine into ABC-Dragon Buster. These new monsters are considered to be on top of the game's current meta.

Knight of The Sun

Knight of The Sun is a great deck to buy for beginners. The starter deck introduces Gold Paladin's new ability Unite. Sunrise Ray Knight, Gurguit is featured in the deck. He is the best defensive unit in the game in my opinion. The deck is one of the strongest starter decks on the market. Gold Paladins are currently the most balanced clan in the format.

Yugi's Legendary Decks II


Yugi's Legendary Decks II is my favorite release from 2016. It features three decks from the original series's main protagonists. Joey, Kaiba, and Yugi are well represented in each of their decks. You also receive three promo cards to enhance your Dark Magician deck. All three decks have reprints and competitive cards. Joey's deck has the best card in the entire box. Red-Eyes Flare Metal Dragon attracted me to Yugi's Legendary Decks II. Red-Eyes Flare Metal Dragon is a powerful card and fits into any deck that can XYZ summon rank seven monsters.

Accessories

I almost forget one very important gift. Every player needs accessories for his or her needs.  Binders deck boxes, and sleeves are nice gifts. A player may need to put his or her collection inside a binder. Deck boxes are good for storing decks. Sleeves are on top of most players' lists. We need sleeves to protect our cards.

The Final Word

I hope my list helped you decide on a gift for your brother, husband, son, etc. These are just a few suggestions for Christmas gifts for your TCG gamer. I have all of these products as your can notice from the videos. I have tried all of the cards and accessories. All are highly recommended to players. Learn which games he or she plays before making your purchase. I hope to get a nice starter deck or booster set this Christmas. Have a Merry Christmas!
