    Well it is nice to have the game expanding. I mean just having main deck monsters would be boring and having more advanced monsters with new mechanics would be more refreshing. When Synchro monsters were introduced they breathed new life into the TCG giving us new ways to play.

    Also for once we actually had a great episode in SEVENS this time. Who knew that Yuga was a cheat.

    There no major events for September in Duel Links, as we are finally getting the ZEXAL world instead. The later new character events will be for ZEXAL world initially for a while, obviously.

    I'm pretty sure the new gimmick is gonna be Fusions. We know from the Rush Duel field that there is an Extra Deck zone meaning that the Extra Deck was gonna be implemented at some point.

    Or they'll just let them be summoned to main monster zones in Rush Duels.

    I just think it's weird that they want to expand Rush Duels. I mean more likely than not Rush Duels won't be supported past the YGO Sevens era any ways.

    I still think that Rush Duels shouldn't be a whole separate game from regular YGO. I can't believe I'm saying this but I miss having anime cards printed in regular sets.

    On the flipside, without the anime cards to worry about (outside of Battles of Legend), core set quality has increased, but we still have had the nostalgia in the last two sets with the Gaia and Raidraptor/DRXD support.

    The cover archetype for Blazing Vortex is now revealed, and shockingly it is NOT a 5D's representative, but instead a retrain of the entire Armed Dragon archetype, except Dark Armed Dragon and Catapult Cannon. There is even a reference for Metaphys Armed Dragon.

    Edit: The new Armed Dragon retrains are also first LV monsters since GX era.
    Edit 2:
    *Armed Dragon Thunder LV10's effect references Chazz's Japaneze catchphrase, as listed by YGOrganization.
    *Armed Dragon LV10 - White is not a direct reference to Metaphys Armed Dragon, but instead it refers to the time Chazz was a member of Society of Light, as he used Armed Dragon LV10 with White Veil. This means we might get his White Knights in a later Collection Pack.
    *In this case, the "Blazing Vortex" refers to LIGHT Thunders and WIND Attribute monsters, not FIRE monsters or Red Dragon Archfiend as I thought. New Batteryman support or even a new Thunder archetype may happen here.

    Chazz it up! Chazz it up! Chazz up the Armed Dragons! These Armed Dragons look great. They were already powerful to begin with but... wow.

    Windwitches too? Even better! So now we've got cards that Rin could've used if she duelled again after wrecking Yugo (and his duel runner) and we can actually make proper Windwitch decks (no other wind monsters like Speedroids and Majespecters).

    Also since these new boosters have cards used/based of 3 characters, excluding imports from Japan, (Yugi, Sora and Girag in Rise of the Duellist, Yuto, Shay and Kalin in Phantom Rage) who will be the third character for Blazing Vortex?

    New Ice Barrier SD features a Level 11 retrain of Trishula, a younger version of Gishki Noellia and an infant version of Exa, Enforcer of the Nekroz. Both Nekroz and Gishki are successor archetypes of Ice Barriers.

    All five-card legacy support slots are used, so we are likely going to get another one-off card like Thunder Hand or Arcana Reading. For what we don't know, but rest of the Tournament Pack Vol. 4 reprints should be revealed by the start of next month.

    Given the set's emphasis on WIND and LIGHT monsters, this would be a neat opportunity to have a WIND Hand monster for Girag, or some sort of Star Seraph support (though that might still happen in Selection 10 in December instead).

    Edit: http://duellinks.gamea.co/c/pvj0g10a
    Duel Links' internal code reveals ARC-V and VRAINS will come to Duel Links after KaibaCorp Grand Prix filler arc.

    Doma and Virtual World arcs are not listed, which suggests we will see a return of the classical OCG metagame in eighth series, or there will be a new DM era movie to fill in space.

    Edit 2: Bunch of set news have been revealed.
    *https://ygorganization.com/isthispowercreep/First, next Deck Modification Pack will still focus on Yuga and Luke, but this time emphasis is on Luke himself. Gakuto will wait for the next set I guess.
    *https://ygorganization.com/ocg-lightning-overdrive/ Next main set after Blazing Vortex for January 16th is called Lightning Overdrive, which likely is going to focus on LIGHT monsters. (Set's name references Stardust Overdrive, but it is hard to say focus will be on 5D's, after Phantom Rage).
    *https://ygorganization.com/itsnotagolditsagod/ There is going to be a new set called Prismatic God Box for December 19th. It will be continuation of Legendary Gold Box from last year, but as name suggests, emphasis will likely be on the God cards of respective series most likely. We might also see new Cubic support I guess?

    Edit 3:
    All cards for Character Pack - Gakuto/Roa/Romin has been revealed, final card is a retrain of Masaki with a visual gag (its crescent is replaced with a bread roll).

    Well it looks like the plot is moving along in SEVENS. Kaizo really got in a mess and now we're in a hunt for him. I wonder what that black shadow was? Also we finally had Lightning Bolcondor's debut it looks cool.

    Anyway onto more interesting stuff. Booster pack number 4 of series 11 is going to be called Lightning Overdrive. I wonder who will be the star of pack? Summoned Skull? Thunder Dragon? Utopia? Trust me after guessing it would be Volcanic's for Blazing Vortex it could be anyone.

    And we have a couple of cards from the next Rush Duel pack. All of them being Rook/Luke cards.

    I hope Lightning Overdrive will have legacy support for Agents and Volcanics because they could really use the boost.

    We have a new plot-relevant character for SEVENS, who is going to debut the next episode.

    Agents will likely have a Structure Deck R in the OCG next February (or March), since their's is the next in line to be remade after Dragunity Drive.

    As for Volcanics, Axel is not coming to the Duel Links any time soon, as far as we can tell, so their best chance is Selection 10.

    Edit: https://ygorganization.com/sevens017/
    Apparently the new character Nail has a whole cast of midbosses.
