  • Use Cards of the Soul and Different Dimension Capsule to search out Rainbow Dragon. You can also use Different Dimension Capsule to search out other useful cards.
  • Summon Sapphire Pegasus to search out Crystal Beasts from your deck.
  • The skill Trancendent Crystal is also for searching out Crystal Beasts from your deck. It is best not to discard or add Sapphire Pegasus to your spell/trap zone with this skill.
  • Remember to always leave 1 space open so you could use your spell cards.
  • Rare Value helps you draw cards and unclog your backrow.
  • Use Wingbeat of Giant Dragon to return Rainbow Dragon to your hand and destroy all spell/trap cards on the field. Remember there is no limit to the number of times you can summon Rainbow Dragon, so you can keep resummoning him from your hand.
  • After searching Rainbow Dragon and having your LP somehow decreased, you can still use Card of the Soul to try and search out a monster.
  • If you are dueling casual against random duellist, it is best to only use Different Dimension Capsule to search Card of the Soul to eliminate the risk of permanently banishing an important card if your opponent destroys Different Dimension Capsule.

I totally get it. I like them better in the Japanese version. Zane does have better clothes than Aster. (Does Aster even wear anything else besides that same outfit?) And I actually did not like Aster/Edo until after he lost to Jaden. Before that, I just thought he was kind of mean, and after he beat I was like, "Well, when is Edo going to lose?" Lol

I really hate aster when he take jaden down but when the opposite happened i really loved him(:
Best rewards ever! Gj konami!!
It seems to me that the main point of this event is to make crystal beasts more viable in the meta. With the combination of Crystal Rageki being a card trader addition, along with new cards like rare value and Jesse’s new skill, the crystal beasts just might get somewhere (unfortunately, there still is not enough support for Rainbow Dragon. He still won’t be viable any time soon, but these new cards do help a little bit.)

this event would be appreciated so much more if you get some card drops from Zane or else he just feels random and just extra points

I like how they seem to be getting the support for crystal beasts out faster compared to some other things. I feel like we had to practically kick and scream just to get D-HERO support, and don't even get me started on Amazoness. Rainbow Dragon is not all there yet, but maybe Konami is getting better about deck support now? Idk
