The 5D’s Update will bring many things to this game; a lot of people are excited about the introduction of Synchro Monsters, others about the new characters from the anime, but one thing we can definitely not forget about are the Celebration Gifts: together with 1000 Gems and a copy of Junk Warrior, we are getting another UR Dream Ticket, one of the most valuable things in the game.
What is this UR Dream Ticket?
It’s a particular item that is given to all players for a special occasion and it allows you to obtain an Ultra Rare card from one of the Boxes available at the moment, saving you up to 10000 Gems.
You may have already decided what you are going to pick with your ticket, but, if you are a new player or you are simply still uncertain, here are a few suggestions.
Top Cards to Pick
We already know that this item does not expire right away, so waiting before using it is in general not a bad choice seeing how a new Mini Box is coming together with a lot of other cards, possibly having an impact on the meta, and another thing that could also happen is the release of a new Selection Box in which some of these cards that I am going to mention will likely be featured as they are so popular.
With that being said, what should you pick with this ticket, based on the current situation?
The rating is based on how the cards are performing right now, how they might perform in the future and what Box they are into.
This Monster Card has once again increased in popularity due to its ability to avoid OTKs. The secondary effect of this card is not used anymore and I don’t see it coming into play again in the near future, but not being affected by common backrow removal gives it an edge over most other forms of protection. While Sphere Kuriboh should not be your first choice—I am just listing these cards in chronological order—if you don’t have him yet, he is not a bad card to pick.
Dawn of Destiny is not really a pack any new player should have dived into until a few weeks ago as the best card it had to offer was Super Rush Headlong, but now it might be an interesting investment. While Yubel Fire King has without a doubt its flaws and limitation, we have seen a lot of people try and pick it up on PvP in the past few days.
Vampire are now pretty popular, but that’s not the only reason why you should get this card: Crimson Kingdom was an incredibly expensive Main Box to open, but now there’s basically no point in investing into it.
Samurai Skull is a cheaper version of this card, but there are still things only Gozuki can do and that will likely come into play later when other Zombie-Type archetypes are released.
Right now Cosmic Cyclone is one of the best forms of backrow removal due to the fact that it’s a Quick-Play Spell and that it banishes the card it targets.
One of the best thing that this card has to offer is its activation cost: the 1000 Life Points you have to pay in order to activate this card give it good synergy with various Skills that are already in the game—Cyber Style, Switcheroo, Silent as WATER, Mighty as Fire, etc and with others that are coming and that we already know of.
Great card that can be easily Special Summoned with Mask Change; choosing Masked HERO Anki means that you will have to reset Valiant Souls only twice to get at least 3 copies of the Quick-Play Spell and the Fusion Monster.
Honestly, both boxes are horrible from today's standpoint.
But, seeing that 3 of the same cards will improve your consistency, while at the same time you might never draw SK when you really need it, I would go for 3rd CC.
