Duelist Nexus introduces the first new monster Type to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME since Cyberse monsters were introduced in 2017’s Starter Deck: Link Strike! Illusion monsters cannot be struck down in battle. They can’t defeat other monsters in battle either, but they harm them in other ways instead! Check out Nightmare Magician, an Illusion monster that gives you control of any monster it battles! It can also destroy any other card on the field if another monster attacks! 

Take your Synchro Summoning strategies to a whole new universe of speed with new cards inspired by Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, including the mighty Crimson Dragon from the anime series, now brought to life as an actual Synchro Monster!
