Cards offered by card trader
As cards have higher rarity, they require more trader items. Some cards can be obtained only from the trading. Tradable cards depend on your stage level.
Where to find?
The card trader can be found below the shop. It appear once a player is at Stage 7.
Players will be able to purchase Glossy/Prismatic cards at the Card Trader. You can upgrade a card to its foil version at the Card Trader by spending the following:
A card that is sold at the Card Trader.
Jewel(s) required to upgrade the card.
Basic cards will be upgraded to Glossy, and Glossy cards will be upgraded to Prismatic. (You cannot obtain Prismatic copies of N/R cards.)
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can pay 500 LP; look at the top card of your Deck, then place it on the bottom of the Deck, OR reveal it and add it to your hand, but skip your next Draw Phase if added to the hand. You can only use this effect of "Dr. Frankenderp" once per turn.
For beginners I guess cards like Energy Drain and Lucky Iron Axe would be good choices.
Getting 3 copies of Rose Lover and Aromage cards when you can would let you play the Deck once you have the cards. It's the only deck right now whose core cards are all from Card Trader, and it's a good deck too.
But my suggestion is, don't think too much about Card Trader until you already know what kind of deck you want to use. Most of the usable cards in Card Trader are meant to supplement specific decks only. The remaining few are usually cards that are no longer used because they have been powercrept by other cards.
There's no restriction other than it being SR or higher and you owning a Glossy of it. You could get a Prismatic Sword of Dark Rites if you really wanted to.

What do you know about the new Card Trader update?
They said the old cards will reappear at the CT, but these old cards are not in the "Featured Cards" list.
Also the "Required Items" released in the CT, but nothing info about this. I can chose one card and thats all, this options will disappear?
