"New Noble Knights rise from the pages of history! The "Infernoble Knights" are a fast Synchro Summoning strategy that burns through their Equip Spells for immediate benefits, then brings them back to the field and dares the opponent to destroy the monster they're equipped to. "Infernoble Knight" monsters are also "Noble Knight" monsters, so you can use existing cards like Heritage of the Chalice to make your Deck even stronger! Don't forget Infernoble Knight – Renaud and Infernoble Knight – Roland from Toon Chaos – you'll need them if you want to maximize your firepower. Many powerful Spell and Trap Cards! Unleash a new "Forbidden" Quick-Play Spell that can negate the effects of and halve the ATK of an entire field's worth of monsters or a Normal Spell that lets you retaliate against your opponent's disruptive monster effects by choosing from the effects of Pot of Greed, Change of Heart, or The Forceful Sentry. On top of all that, you can even find:

  • A powerful new "Chaos" Synchro Monster.
  • A brand-new anti-Extra Deck Spellcaster theme.
  • New cards for the "Rikka" and "Adamancipator" themes from Secret Slayers.
  • New cards for the "Mathmech" and "Dragonmaid" themes from Mystic Fighters.
  • 20 previously unavailable Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards from overseas promotions, pack-ins, and more!"
