Yu-Gi-Oh: The Best and Rarest Cards from 'Ghosts from the Past'

The recent Yu-Gi-Oh TCG expansion ‘Ghosts from the Past’ not only returns classic characters and strategies, but it includes more stunning artwork and some extremely rare cards with a haunting design.

Ghosts from the Past is a 132-card set, including 45 new cards, 87 returning cards and 5 Ghost Rares.

The set also features nine themes from the past, featuring different strategies like Dragunity and Cipher, with an additional two new themes: the ‘Sunavalon’ strategy and another original strategy.


All Yu-Gi-Oh card art is relentlessly impressive, but adding to the collection of bundled set strategies are more striking designs.

Nekroz of Areadbhair
